Assuming that the DSLRs are becoming more video orientated apart from natural improvements as better sensor, focusing, features, one day it would be nice to see global shutter and down-sampling for video

marike6: Let the games of "Name that DOF equivalent" begin.

Yes, I really don't understand this obsession about the DOF for those compacts, with such a fast lenses and small but good sensor the low light performance of XZ-10 will probably be better than any past generation enthusiast compact and so we search new thing to criticize

Richard Murdey: 1:1.8-2.7

Wow. That's all you need to know, right there.

1:1.8-2.7 is all about low light capabilities of the camera and not the DOF

ARTASHES: Before everybody starts to complain about sensor size just check this sensor performance on the other compacts (Canon HS50, SX240)
If it had 1/1.7 sensor it would have been bigger with same speed lenses (XZ-2 is that camera actually) or it would have the same size with slower lenses and you would lose all your IQ gain in low light !!!

Timmbits: with a tiny 1/2.3"sensor, this might be good for my 7 y.o. child, to introduce her to photography...
but surely anyone in their right mind wouldn't consider this over ANY of the already small 1/1.7" sensor cameras.
I really don't see the point of the existence of this camera, if not for kids.

@Timm
Give us a wish list of compact camera with it's sensor size (that isn't "small") and lenses please

give me the max aperture of RX100 at telephoto and it's telephoto reach

Liz Z.: I thought "Wow, this looks like a worthy alternative to the RX100-- wider angle, more zoom, brighter lens at tele," until I got to the sensor size. What was Olympus thinking in not doing at least a 1/1.7' sensor? I suspect that the users this camera is aimed at (digitally informed, not invested in the megapixel race, interested in RAW formats and manual options) will notice that "feature," and be unimpressed. It seems short sighted on Olympus' part.

Go and check Canon SX50 HS sensor scores at DXO which has probably the same 1/2.3 sensor, compare the charts to Canon S110 sensor ones and then I think you will better understand why they put this sensor : you can have brighter lenses with same size of S110

PS why complain about sensor size if sensor doing a great job being small ?

In reply to:

Alvar: Great zoom range but pretty disappointing aperture. With a max F3.4 you can't do pretty much anything in low light. That's why people move on to larger sensor cameras, I've tried once to take fast action pics in low light with a similar Canon zoom, how clueless I was, you can do nothing with it.

With so many generations of cams and in 2013, you'd guess they at least be at F1.8, ideally at F1.4 or better. With such small and noisy sensors these cameras are useless and the slow lens doesn't make it better.

Faster lenses in compacts/small sensor cameras should be next hot thing brands should be competing for.

Why have such a big zoom when you can't use it past 6 PM?

Talking about sensor, this 1/2.3 sensor is better and less/as noisy than/as any 1/1.7 apart maybe those last backlit CMOSs

Sergey Borachev: The weakest link in these top superzoom models is clearly the small sensor. Luckily sensors are still improving, by quite a lot each year in fact, e.g. the OMD (E-PM2) sensor, the RX100 sensor, the X-Tran sensor, and there are better sensors also from Canon. Yet, Canon decided to just use the same sensor as in the old SX40.

The matter of fact that this 1/2.3 sensor is as good as G15's 1/1.7 sensor proofs that this isn't a Canon sensor cause with same technology bigger sensors are better

Rachotilko: Regarding sensor improvement: grils&guys, you can use DPR studio comparison tool to compare Canon SX20 vs Canon SX50: you'll see that 1/2.33 sensors have improved, quite substantially.

@Rachotilko
Well, actually, I am wrong: FZ200 is noisier than FZ150, which is actually sad.

That was predictable, in FZ150 they used Sony sensor

"Noise becomes pretty intense at ISO 800 and beyond", it's somehow weird to see that kind of critics over a sensor that practically step better than FZ200's one (check RAWs in lab test) but see no word about average high ISO performance in Panny review

Canon compacts haven't Canon sensors, those are Sony, only 1/1.7s are Canon

mpgxsvcd: What we need is a compact camera with a good fast lens. Oh wait we already have that in the LX7. What do we need these new cameras for?

who we ?

nobody mentions LX7 raw NR above 800 ISO, and it's sensor inferiority (just compare it to XZ2)
