George Veltchev: Even the little G1 X from Canon showing better image quality in comparison and even better low light performance than this mirrorless Sony ... check the test results for yourself.
Ha Ha call the G1x Ovf and viewfinder ! also the damm camera can't focus any closer then the nearest star system Lol
£1000, excuse while i scoop up my internal organs after my sides split with laughter LOL Nikon
Sad people writting off m4/3 as inadequate for portraits,i suspect the obsession with narrow dof is from folk who lack skill and rely soley on narrow dof .
Pythagoras: with a lens that size, what's the point of using mft?
But the 50-200 lens is not native hence slooow AF,so whats the point in the comparision,why does the D600 need a grip ? and lastly a 300m reach Nikon lens cropped with the higher pixel far superior FF sensor will give the same reach in any case.
There is no point
There are stacks of duplicated slow lenses for canon/Nikon camera's going back years, mirrorless is just a repeat of the last 10yr cyle.If you want to be really serious about DOf ,you will need fixed fast primes or FF .Between panasonic duplicating slow kit lenses and Olympus making overpriced silver lenses without hoods included i have finally lost interest in this m4/3 segment.
Andrew Butterfield: My local Jessops has only cardboard POS material in the window with pictures of cameras on it. Their staff look a mess and hang around outside the shop smoking. They charge as much for a slow 1GB SD card as Amazon do for a fast 16GB card. They won't consider doing deals. If they were a great shop, I'd be sad, but I'm just hoping when they go that we might get a nice coffee shop or a deli where they used to be. Sad for the staff though, even the ones who lounge outside with their shirts untucked smoking fags...
Very unfair summary of Jessops,i have dealt with some very good shops with very helpfull ,friendly staff. Agree they have some weak outlets in towns they should'nt bother with,they should of culled at least half as many shops again in the last couple of yrs.
The British high st has become a sad place,i work all over the country and most high street's look the same ie Greggs,costa coffee,many many mobile phone shops and lately an explosion of betting shops and loan shark shops's.
John Sargent: Seems odd to me that a camera whose image quality, by your own admission, clearly falls short of excellent should get a silver award. But it looks good, and perhaps that's what counts.
Where did they say that in the review ?? ie the image quality of the X10 clearly falls below excellent.
Found the G1x unuseable,autofocus is terrible,IQ is brilliant but negated by the slower lens compared to the X10,as i now mainly print up to A4 max and view images on my Ipad 3 the X10 images look great for what i need,maybe for more critical stuff you will want a more capable sensor etc,but after 10 yrs of digital i'm sick of PP and computers, the X10 jpegs just work and lets me concentrate on photography !!! some people should try that instead of bitching.
