W5JCK: I would have chosen all above except the last item if it had been a choice.
I agree. A poor poll. Do dpreview read these threads?
I would have ticked the first 4 as well.
Also concerns about plugins and the cloud.
This is corporate lunacy of the first order.
OvinceZ: Lightroom is for photographers and Photoshop isn't? Both are useful for photographers but Photoshop is too expensive. Lightroom is now affordable like Nik software. Most of us spend heaps on other photography software. Topaz, Capture One, Perfect Effects, Noiseware, etc.
Adobe is going to lose thousands of long time customers with this strategy.
Hi Michael,There is now a perception that Adobe have poor customer support. I hate Apple's iTunes and I dislike Adobe as a company. How many other people are going to be upset at the way Adobe are treating them?

Adobe is an example of the negative side of Capitalism. Nik made their software cheaper via Google. Adobe is way too expensive for what you get and the updates add up. No wonder there are so many pirates. Now this Cloud nonsense. Surely there can't be that many silly people who will subscribe!
Impressive to resolve those galaxies.
Nothing exciting from Canon since the 5DII.
I want one. Can showcase my photos properly. Add photos etc., without iTunes. Never enough resolution for large photos.
I have wanted something much bigger than the iPad for years. 20" screen with that resolution sounds like a dream. Would be perfect for showing photos and doing other stuff. The 4-3 size is exactly what I want. Can be used plugged in. More or less do that when using the iPad for a long time. More memory, fast and has connectivity via USB. Great.
A big Yes, Please! from me.
I would love to have this version to take photos of flowers. Should be superb.
Wonderful photo. Nice to know how it was taken.
BrianPriceUK: As usual, the anti-Canon brigade weigh in with their ill-informed criticisms.They remind me of the famous scene from that great film 'The Wild Ones' -Question: "What don't you like about the new Canon camera"Answer: "What has it got?"Brian
I have 2 5DII and a 60D with bags of lenses, etc. I am disappointed with the recent offerings from Canon. I bought a NEX7 and a OMD EM5 but used to buy Canon G compacts. Only the 5DIII interests me but it is not compelling.

This should be a great little camera. The thing about focussing is that on most cameras it isn't accurate all the time. Along comes Sony with focus peaking and it is a new ball game. I take a lot of flower photos and in manual mode as soon as you start focussing it zooms in and when the subject is in focus yellow edges appear. If you press the shutter half way you see where the yellow areas of focus are and can either continue to fine tune it or move the camera in and out. Once you see the results you won't take photos any other way. For critical focus of important photos manual focus is a bonus and I would rely on it more than any auto focus system.
adrianlew: Nokia is retarded. What will a user do with a 41 mega pix? Its the quality not the size that counts... Those photos will only take space. No wonder the almost went out of business.. Same poor decision to run windows instead of android on nokia phones... I think the really should close the doors...
The 808 should be amazing for shooting flowers. Small sensor will give excellent depth of field and lots of pixels will result in great detail. My HTC has an 8 Mp camera but the Pure View sounds much better.
mikeoregon: Thanks, Carsten, hope you will keep looking and letting us know what you find. I hike and shoot in the mountains here in Oregon with a day pack carrying camera gear, food, a rain jacket, headlamp, etc. and I still haven't found a lightweight pack that can carry it all, plus a tripod.
I have the 30L Kiboko. I just tried putting my Benro carbon fibre flat Travel Tripod in and it is a perfect fit. Not with the ball head, of course. This tripod is quite light. I have the largest travel tripod but there is also one that is a bit shorter and slightly lighter. So the Kiboko will accommodate a big tripod.
Colourful and interesting selection of photos.
You can use screenhunter to capture larger images. Program is one I will probably buy.
