michalc: Much better at 10mm than at 18mm. A little worse than a kit lens at 18mm. Still hesitant whether to keep it. Anyway nice move from canon to release a decent ultra-wide at this price point.

Well, some could carry 10-18mm assuming that it is useful throughout the range and a fixed 23 or 27mm (like me), that simple.

On Canon EOS M Preview preview (546 comments in total)

When Nikon introduced N1 I thought Nikon designers/planners/ strategic thinkers did not work hard creating simplistic design/philosophy. Now I've grown to appreciate it. At least they INVENTED new sensor size enabling producing SHORTER and smaller lenses. And what is this thing? cheap looking (but not cheap at all), ugly P&S with good (?) old (cheap) sensor that has been beaten by competition ages ago in every respect. Long live m4/3 and NEX!!! (have one of each). What a relief!!! One less to buy! Thanks Canon!

michalc: hmmm.. was there a review posted before? would expect such an article before or at least in it. such info used to appear years ago at dcresource but with time every review became alike. i understand that comparing pixels, buttons, iso, dynamic range etc. is useful to assess a camera. but for a potential buyer info how to set settings to get most out of a camera is essential if not more important than bare facts.... well done but would ask guys at dpreview to take a little more time when reviewing cameras and introduce a section called recommended/cute/cool settings or whatever, that would be definitely of a value add to potential customers, thanks

and that is what surprised me ... I figured that playing with settings would take less time than putting all the review together... so better late than never...

On Pentax Q preview (279 comments in total)

I don't get it.. First Sony announces NEX system with tiny body and huge lenses. My first thought was - why they couldn't develop smaller sensor - something between 1/1.6'' and APS-C. That would be a reasonable compromise between size and IQ. True, Sony has great IQ but the only lens which makes this set portable is 16mm. And this is still an alternative for a DSLR. Now to Pentax - tiny sensor and sophisticated system around that. Such sensor cannot deliver decent IQ at present trechnology level. SO one question - what is the point? Probably they thought - customer is stupid and will look in the shop for a mirrorless system camera (trendy), will compare Sony NEX, Olympus Pen, Panasonic G and Pentax Q and will choose Pentax due to look/size. This is a humbug as Pentax will not even come close to IQ of any of these systems. Good luck Pentax. The original question remains.. why someone cannot produce new sensor size. We know Sony won't, Oly/Pana has 4/3'' - counting on Canon now...
