This is indeed a statement product. This is how it is done. This is leadership.

In reply to:

mosc: The RX10 is clearly in the wrong category. Except for the fact that it's kit lens can't be removed, it lines up much more closely with the K3, the 70D, and the D7100. It's every bit as expensive and the dimmensions aren't that dissimilar. It's "fixed" kit lens compares very similarly to the 18-135/140 lenses that those cameras have. A little slower at wide, a little faster at tele, very similar range. And the price of all the cameras I mentioned here was within $100 unlike this hodgepodge category it got lumped into.

How about the bridge camera category?

In reply to:

Black Box: I'm getting a bit tired of "yet another" lens mounts. It's not like there are hundreds of camera makers. Can't they all just down, eat some biscuits and come up with ONE lens mount standard for small MILCs? It's getting WAY too annoying.

m4/3 is just another unique lens mount from two sinking ships.

No wonder MILCs can't gain any traction against DSLRs. Even the latest greatest are handicapped.

In reply to:

Retzius: What the Nikon 1 should have been...

Because of the *stupid* interface, lousy AF, the size and quality of E-mount lenses, I replaced my NEX gear with the Nikon 1 system. Image quality isn't on the same level, but it is still very good. The defining difference between any two cameras consist of a whole lot more than sheer IQ. If that were not the case, we'd all be shooting with Foveon sensors.

Interesting and quite refreshing to see that someone is actually willing to innovate rather than recycle more of the same old ideas. The industry is long over due for some forward thinking. This design looks like it was intended to be operated with one hand. Well done, Sigma.

On Nikon releases Coolpix P340 pocketable compact with Wi-Fi news story (100 comments in total)
In reply to:

JackM: Any compact with less than a 1" sensor is DOA unless it is just a cheap mass-market toy.

That's utter and complete nonsense. The ergonomics and handling of the Sony RX-100 cameras suck big time. The viewfinder is an expensive after thought--for that money, you could buy a much better camera with MUCH BIGGER sensor. Moreover the lens isn't nearly as fast as what can be found in other compacts.

On Richard Franiec creates custom grip for Panasonic GM1 news story (48 comments in total)

The GM1 is an ergonomic afterthought. Panny engineers didn't design this camera for human hands. It's small enough to fit in a pocket as long as there isn't a lens attached. Adding a grip to a grip-less camera makes good sense, too bad the GM1 doesn't.

People who buy a Sony camera are most likely to be dissatisfied with their purchase according to the numbers of this poll.

On Best Gear of 2013: The results are in! news story (159 comments in total)

Due to a high turnover rate there are some very questionable cameras on this list.

Former owners vs. current status = 33.33% for the Sony RX-10
Former owners vs. current status = 32.28% for the Sony 7R
Former owners vs. current status = 24.22% for the Fuji X-100s

ZoranHR: According to "I own it/I want it/I had it" the most Popular Fujifilm 100S also has the greatest pourcentage of people wich sold it. Good look seems to be a sword with two blades. Interesting to notice.

Good point. The math proves Fuji X-100S owners are 4X more dissatisfied than than Coolpix A owners. The statistics prove the Fuji is a risky crap shot.

Jimmy jang Boo: DPR,

What do you mean by ergonomics and handling? BTW, I've handle the Q7 and the GM1; to give them the same rating in ergonomics and handling is flat out preposterous. So please explain, what do you mean by ergonomics and handling?

I not so sure they mean what you and I mean, because if they do, then there's no way they could rate those two cameras the same in that respect.

hip2: it seems like everyone is voting for the camera they own, and not objectively for the best camera :D

Can there be any objectivity to a question that askes for your opinion?

For the record, my vote goes to the Sigma - and I own the Ricoh. But I would agree with your overall assessment that those who voted Fuji, were the least objective. Anyone of the 4 other cameras can produce a much better image than X-100s.

mumintroll: I know it's not year 2013, but the best fixed lens camera is Sigma DP2 no doubt. IQ is FAR!!! better than all other fixed lens cameras on the market. All Sigmas Merrill are superior.

Don't believe? Check this photo of Prague from merrill DP3.

@rsf3127

Unmatched is a gross understatement.

Cameras are not fashion accessories, they are for capturing images. Therefore the camera with the best image quality is the best camera.
