tinternaut: Well, you only manage to miss out three manufacturers, and an entire mount.
Which of those would you consider to be entry-level?
GSD_ZA: Hasseblad are well aware that there are enough idiots in the world to make this re-branding and uglification worthwhile for them.... or are there?
Ah well, there's still a Leica branded (and priced) Panasonic out there for them then...
completelyrandomstuff: Free advertising for Hasselblad - all the hate will generate a lot of brand awareness.
Not the kind of awareness that any sensible marketing dept. would want though.

capanikon: Eh. Canikon mirrorless is gonna crush Sony whenever they get around to taking mirrors seriously.
Capanikon, that's your choice. If you have no need for depth of field control or for low light performance, then APS-C or even an Iphone may well be good enough for you.
Nikon certainly have no intention of "crushing" Sony. For a start, they've worked out that Sony make better sensors than they're capable of themselves. Other tech sharing is sure to take place between companies who want to remain competitive. Those who continue to think that they are the best at everything will be "crushed"...
UnitedNations: People who do not understand the value of these photos do not know art.These are not supposed to be those superficially amazing but completely boring & shallow photos you see everyday on Flickr with thousands of up votes.These photos show the generally high level of Photographic art which seems to be the norm in U.K.
Ah yes, isn't it wonderful that art is so utterly exclusive as to be meaningless to all but the most erudite of us all.
It was folly beyond comprehension. They must be wishing the'd never gone down that road. Only Panasonic really knows how to make money out of brand weenies.
Based on this test, I'd have to say the G7X is an absolute dud.
The kids are gonna love it!
The key is going to be in the low-light performance.
JulesJ: Interesting, but the slow startup is not so great.
But it looks great, doesn't it!
Eelco van Vliet: I have been reading Dpreview since the beginning, but this is cheap journalism and totally unnecessary. What has gotten into the mind of the author to start this cheap bashing on Leica over a missing battery.
If only they would have been this brave to Nikon over their D600. Now that would have been a proper statement.
Now in return you must write a full detailed review on this camera and finish the Pana DMC-FZ1000 review. And don't you dare to tag it with Humor again...
Nobody's bashing Leica branded Panasonics. It's the people that buy them that we find amusing.
GSD_ZA: Another red dot for those with more money than understanding
Some people prepared to pay a premium just to have the red Leica dot on their camera even if they could buy a similar or better product of another brand for half the price.

andix: This is as useful as an umbrella to a fish.
Imagine how much fun a fish could have with an umbrella. It may not advance the fish's ability to survive in the deep ocean, or to become a brain s(t)urgeon, but hey, what's a fish's life to be without the occasional frivolity.
I love it - I want one.
If this were a fair representation of the city, I'd say things were looking bleak. The photographers need to get out more.
Very ordinary amateur photography
