RichRMA: People are STILL paying $400+ for P&S's when interchangeable lens mirror-less cameras with the same or bigger sensors are available? Why?

It will never happen at the same price point. However, even though the "speed" of f2.8 is the same, this is only part of the picture. An f2.8 lens will allow greater control of depth of field on a larger format camera. Also, if all we are concerned with is "speed" then it could be argued that larger format cameras are more forgiving at high ISO.

J D Tranquil: Thank you, Jeff. I've been a fan of yours for years and I'm glad to see your reviews here. Your reviews influenced my purchasing decision on some very good digital cameras. I'm very happy to see this head-to-head format and hope it continues.

I couldn't agree more. I got about 4 pages into this review and said to myself, "Did Jeff Keller write this?" Upon checking, I saw that of course he did.

horsth: What's going on here. The Canon G15 gets gold with 76%, the Fuji X20 only silver with 77% ??

Brining in Jeff is a great idea. I hope to see continued collaboration in the future.
