camerosity: Condsidering that a full review was never done for the P6000, or P7000, this is a good thing to see. I still wonder why dpreview has such an obvious Canon-centric bias when clearly the P7000 was superior to the G12?
The "P7000 was superior to the G12?". I couldn't disagree more with that statement. I have been sorely disappointed by the P7000 due to consistent focus problems.
Interesting. I'm a bit more pragmatic about camera brands now. Given my experience with failed Nikon coolpix cameras over the years, culminating in the unfixed P7000 focus issues I wouldn't pay any amount for their consumer grade cameras.
I've owned about 1/2 nikon and 1/2 other brand (4 Canon, 2 Fujifilm, 2 Panasonic, 1 Sony). 3 failed Nikon cameras, 0 failed other brands. If I look at all the electronic brands I've purchased over the years, only one has been problem free and that is Panasonic. I now purchase Panasonic whenever possible.
I'm stuck with Nikon DSLRs for the time being due to investment in glass, but would gladly trade out to a different brand if there were a compelling feature AND it made sense financially.
