I didn't look at all the images, but image 26 with the river and landscape is complete mush. There doesn't appear to be anything in focus at all. What gives?

80% seems pretty high for what was called the "worst camera of the year" by the savvy folks at The Camera Store.

It's too bad it doesn't come with the 17mm F/1.8 lens instead of that crappy ez zoom.

I think it's very unfortunate that Dpreview never got around to doing a GX8 review, especially when one considers the size of the review staff.

Samuel Spencer: Repeating a reply I posted below:

Conditions weren't ideal (as usual), which is why I was driving all over Oregon and Washington states trying to find decent light while working on this gallery. A balcony shootout on a tripod vs comparable lenses is in the works. For now, the gallery demonstrates sharpness that can be expected when depending heavily on IS while shooting handheld.

There's really no reason to shoot at ISO 200 if conditions aren't ideal. Low shutter speeds clearly hurt many of these images.

Richard Craze: Is it just me or is the standard of test images on this review site dropping. A lot of the recent test images seem underexposed plus a few of the pictures seem to be not very will focused. I might be imagining it or does anyone else feel the same, just wondering.

JakeB: Did you even look at the images or are you just chasing pointless likes?

This set is definitely sub-standard.

Are these all hand-held? Of the 22 images taken at 400mm, only two are with a shutter speed faster than 1/400.

DualSystemGuy: Another Sony reviewed in record time, before the D810, D4, D4S, 1DX haha.

You can add the GX8 to the list of not-yet-reviewed/overlooked cameras as well.

J A C S: A mixture of some great and unique images, like 4, 7, 8, and 11 and some overdone ones, like 1, 9 and 2 (is that a nuclear explosion in #2?).

As Ednaz said: #2 shows a sundog. I've seen them that pronounced as well. There's nothing overdone or "nuclear" about it.

Are we going to be seeing a full review of this camera before we see one for the Panasonic GX8? Just curious...

TN Args: Just goes to show that compact cameras are not dead if you show innovation.

@Karroly, Profit is profit; if Casio is succeeding where many of its competitors aren't, good on them. And I'm saying this as someone who has never taken a single selfie.

Speaking of the GX8, is the full review coming soon? Before Christmas perhaps?

Now if only Fuji would put a Bayer sensor in a higher end model...

They appear to be finished in Canada as well, at least according to the Camera Store, which was one of the few places that actually stocked Samsung gear.

I really hope Panasonic comes through with this 100-400, and sometime in the next year would be nice too.

My guess is that Americans will get some awesome deals but us Canadians will continue to get shafted.

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 Review (494 comments in total)

I still don't understand why Panasonic isn't offering electronic first curtain shutter. Heck, my Samsung NX20 has EFCS and it was announced more than three years ago. Other than that, though, I don't really see much to nitpick about with this camera. It looks like a solid offering.

JakeB: When are we going to see a Nikon D400, the true replacement to my D300s???

LOL.

Sorry. Wanted to post that before someone who was serious made that tired post.

What does Nikon have to compete with the NX1? Umm, how about lenses?
