Richard Murdey: dpreview starts using the "ten things you need to know about..." clickbait titles.
E tu, brute?!
While I do not disagree with you, I did want to point out that this form of title seems to have become a journalistic trend of sorts, regardless of its original purpose. That DPR is using it may be the result of influence as much as the outcome of a desire to increase click-through rates.
Just another perspective.
bigdaddave: Numbers 6, 7, 8 and 9 won something?
I must dig out some of my rubbish shots and submit them
Hey, I liked #7. It's perfectly framed and composed.
In candlelight, film looked better to me than even the D800. It has a '3D look' that the D800 didn't have.

The Fuji lineup is a LOT more attractive than this Leica. Given $3300 I'd invest in a Fuji system. I think I'd be able to snag two lenses, one body, and one X100 line camera in that amount.
So if I get a 365 subscription now, I'll soon get unlimited storage? Sounds like a great deal to me.
Very promising. I'd love to see a good review of this lens.
On the bright side, this will have more casual snappers thinking about composition. Plus, if it works, the average quality level on Instagram will rise too.
thecameraeye: This is very nearly THE perfect advanced compact. The Achilles heel is none other than the lack of a touchscreen, IMO. You can ignore it for everything else but setting the AF point by touchscreen is so convenient and useful that it's very hard to go back.
@darngooddesign, I'm not comparing it with the X-E1. Apples to oranges. The image quality and build of the Fuji cameras will probably blow this out of the water, but then an X-E1 with a good lens is probably going to cost you more too.

thecameraeye: Could we please have the scrollable pages back? The articles are great but I find the page-turning disruptive to the reading experience.
I surmised as much, but I'm still not happy about it.

Whoa. This is a better deal than a m43 setup under $1000 for many people.
thecameraeye: The lack of a twin dial is a little disappointing.
@areichow, the second dial replicates the function of the first dial IIRC. I don't know whether any Alpha mirrorless cameras apart from the NEX-7/alpha 7 have true twin dial or triple dial control systems.
And @quezira, there are cameras at this price point with two dials. The Fuji X-A1/X-M1 comes to mind.
The lack of a twin dial is a little disappointing.
I hope there's an update to the E-PL5 with the zero second antishock too.
ianimal: Forget it. It's all relative. Your brain mess it up anyway.Shoot the image and adjust later by trusting you eyes.Save the money, do it easy.
It's important to calibrate your monitor, though.
steelski: This is literally a waste of your front page. You can spend your time how you like. But I think this would have been beneath you a year or two ago. Sorry to be unkind.
You would have been right if these articles had been at the expense of their more technical write-ups. However, that isn't the case - their articles and reviews are as well-researched and informative as ever . As far as I'm concerned, they're just aiming at a bigger audience by publishing 'friendly' articles, and I'm not going to pick on them for that.
Donnie G: It appears to me that the Panasonic GH4 is a video camera, first and foremost, that just happens to do stills too. The fact that the camera comes dressed in traditional stills camera ergonomics may help to sell it to a larger customer base than would be possible if it were wearing video only clothes. It's kind of a "poor man's" Canon 1D-C aimed at schizophrenic video/stills photography hobbyist. I'm sure we will see a lot more of these hybrids, at this price point and below, from the other gadget makers in the very near future, as they continually hunt for a way to turn a profit from their camera businesses. Fortunately, Panasonic has the necessary background in video to do a good job of it. :)
It has a 50 shot deep buffer for shooting RAW+JPEG photos at 12fps. That's the kind of spec that challenges the Olympus E-M1, and tell me that the E-M1 is a video camera.
Howard S: "the ability to set exposure compensation when using Auto ISO in manual exposure mode." Can we have this on other models please?
I want this on my E-PL5.
Reilly Diefenbach: Sharpness is out of the picture taking equation with the D7100 and just about any lens at its better settings, corners excepted on many. Now you've got only the subject to worry about.
The subject is always the most important spec.
