Panasonic continues to lead the field with integral, practical EVFs that fit neatly within the overall form factors. Should have seen this across all brands much sooner. Could a topside EVF be better? Yes, but this is a great practical approach-something my Nikon Coolpix P60 had years ago. A great idea lapsed until more recently by Nikon.
Great progress. Finally a solid lineup of DSLR models versus one current model available at a time.
Nikon doesn't have to sell the most cameras in the world, just be profitable with what it does best.
EOS-M page only listed version 3?
white shadow: DPR seem to have left out the Lumix GF6 which is actually quite a good bang for the money and a great entry level mirrorless camera. I would certainly buy one if I am buying my first camera.
I am including the GF6 because it is still currently available. There is no replacement yet.
DPR is selling new. Otherwise, the Olympus PM2 would similarly be a great choice and value.
Best value: Samsung NX3000Most interesting/neat: Samsung NX Mini
Silver-OK.Good at what it intends to be.However, could aspire to more.
I am sure that Leica will do right by its customers.
ozturert: Yes there are some drawbacks of small body design, on the other hand for my usage the only negative thing is the price. Otherwise, it's a brilliant little camera. Very fast, WiFi, EVF (small but sharp), good image quality. This is not for everyone, definitely.
I see where the OEMs are going and I laud Panasonic for small + EVF. But I don't think the premium pricing for these smaller cameras without mirror, OVF, etc. will prevail. I don't think at this stage of camera development that we should have to pay more for miniaturization. This is the Nikon 1 school of pricing. Time will tell.
Smaller sensor. Smaller, less complicated camera than DSLR. $500 would be appropriate.
Kardashian family just made a bulk order!
Well-done, Barney and guest and team. Calm and thorough.
Good choices. Shows how lean the DSLR market place is.
amit patnaik: they published without testing the Sony and Canon? Nikon paid them.
Read 7. Which enthusiast dslr should I buy?
I respect the intent of DPR folks. You need to rethink and streamline the review process; not belabor it and trickle out parts so the camera can be sold by GearShop. How do other less substantial sites with much fewer resources do it?
Gesture: That's a Silver Award winner. But Samsung NX owners enjoy great value.
Sorry, meant to say I believe it should have been a Silver Award winner; emulates with a different sensor size what Panasonic is doing in making cameras good + compact.
What do you use to shoot the video?
That's a Silver Award winner. But Samsung NX owners enjoy great value.
It's almost incredible in modern times that this could be conceived and presented as a product.
