KonstantinosK: High ISO RAWs from the XT-1 look very clean but soft. Are they cooked?
yeah they are as clearly can be seen by the lack of detail. Mushed over for NR.
James Bligh: I cannot find a word about internal reflection and shutter shock issues of D750 in this review. Please point me to it if I missed it. When dpreview never even mentions (not to say evaluate) the issues, you can no longer say dpreview review is a comprehensive review which I think is a shame. Once renowned for its objective reviews and a comprehensive source of information about camera gears I am afraid dpreview has fallen into the realm of mediocrity many review sites share. The present generation of dpreview staffs may have wasted their talent and ruined the reputation of dpreview. Phil Askey will lament over it seeing the prestige he has built up tainted.
Or Canon could just get their act together. Lazy buggers.
deserthawk742: C'mmon NIKON, where's D400?
There will be a D7200
jpegs are mainly used on the web. Compatibility is the magic word. When a large percentage of your audience can't view the image because their browser doesn't supported it, it will not be used, no matter how good it is.
D1N0: there's a list, you click it. Nothing happens. #Fail

Iv'e ditched my zebra's. Bunch of nosy fellows and I never agreed with them.
Didn't bother to include the Pentax K-1? Typical dpreview bias.
D1N0: None of these camera's are very compact, but the FZ1000 certainly not. It is bigger than most entry and mid range dslrs, and even than some enthusiast dslrs (like the K-3)
An iPhone is not a camera at all :p
A compact camera should be able to fit in a pant's pocket. The FZ1000 will make you look like a terminally horny badger if you ever get it in there.
steelski: What a bunch of phooey. The D7100 beats the K-3 how exactly....ergonomics, no,IQ, noprice, noLV, nomovie mode, nospeed, NO!!!buffer, noAF, debatable....AF in the dark, Nomenus, no!in body sensor shift, NoGPS stat tracking, noMetering, noViewfinder, noMagnesium body, noshutter actuations reliability, nodampening, noUSB3,noflash sync, yesbattery life yes, flash system yesNikon badge yes!!!!! I think your assessment is total bias. to put it mildly. thanks for putting in time and effort.
It doesn't surprise me at all. People are used to Nikon interface en jpeg's so they punish the Pentax for not being a Nikon. Catch 22.
My point was that the FZ1000 is not a compact camera. The idea that smaller is better, has nothing to do with photography. Only with comfort.
KonstantinosK: K-50: "Poor battery life" and "we recommend a spare.". 410 shots aren't THAT bad. You tried hard to find a third con, didn't you?
It's not a grip it's a AA-battery holder you can fit inside the camera. Doesn't ad to the size. Maybe a little more weight.
I am not, but it is in the round up and it's being called a compact while dslr's are always getting flak for being bulky. :p
I won't be using those lenses on a dslr.
When you use the battery holder and eneloops you can get double the shot's out of the K-50.
Marty4650: A really interesting "update"...
1. Canon SL1 - 17 months old2. Canon T5i - 17 months old3. Nikon D3300 - 7 months old4. Nikon D5300 - 10 months old5. Pentax K-50 - 14 months old5. Sony SLT-A58 - 18 months old
It's like a trip to a museum to see the dinosaurs.
The K-50 is actually a reclad K-30 which is based roughly on the K-5 with the image processor of the K-01. You could say it's a 2010 camera, but it still rocks.
None of these camera's are very compact, but the FZ1000 certainly not. It is bigger than most entry and mid range dslrs, and even than some enthusiast dslrs (like the K-3)
II stellar for me
