I don't trust photo. '.' Good Job. U earned it.
if it used APS-C/43 sensor, it would have been just about perfect camera for me.
i can't wait to hear what people do with that. New Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG with metabone.. yeah.. can't wait to put it on my GF2.
other than the small sensor, i love the whole packaging. i would not go smaller than 4/3 though.. wish fuji will just join m43 and put high end 4/3 sensor on this package and i will fall in love.. .. ..
WTH.. it is an arts contest, not a photo contest.
Damn American Journalism to lead the charge in fakery in public images. OJ Simpson photo was my eye opener and then on I realize that ALL photos are touched. Therefore ALL FAKE. Current acceptance of HDR is totally inexcusable, too. Damn the industry and all its contributors in making photo worth a toiler paper. I trust 4chan photo far more than anything on the mass media. Shame on us.
Looking at its feature set, I can only say every area of design screams LOOK WE SAVED A PENNY HERE TOO! Suckers! Bah.. I think it is an excellent Camera what disgusts me is how they wrapped it around.
JonSr: D5100 was a D7000 with a few flaw. D5200 sounds like D3200 with a new number. Doesn't sound like an upgrade but a downgrade. That's sad.
you guys are very naive. dxomark does not indicate 3200 sensor is any better than one in 7000 which 5100 had. D3200 has lower Dynamic Range and lower Low Light sensitivity. I don't think there was much problem with focusing system. And I can't careless for gains in megapixel.

why make a toy camera look so serious. put a hello kitty outfit. neutered loser of a product that should shame any nikon badge owner.
if u r 2 satisfy my addiction, u gotta increase content output at least 2 fold. pump out stuff faster.
When GF3 is being sold for $300. What Canon and Nikon is doing with their tiny sensor compact seems price gouging naive people.
tutek: See the G7 in 2006. year. What has changed in 6 years? Almost nothing!
@calmwaters don't we know now that 1/1.7" sensor size is what really matter as far as the quality is concerned. For the cost of G15, it really outlived its sensor size. G15 should have been at least m43 size if not APS-C. The cost just doesn't justify the size.
JonSr: GF3 was a cursed crippled miserable creature. I couldn't get rid of it fast enough. Panny is showing their determination to produce crapware to lure unsuspecting buyers a junk they have to replace as soon as they purchased this. Total Assory of a Product representing true nature of the management. Shame on you.
example of Lens Barrel Shadow on GF3https://plus.google.com/u/0/115412895113423610903/posts/3JdxbenYKx3
true. 1. Lens Barrel Shadow with Standard Zoom Lens. 2. No Remote Control 3. No External Microphone Jack. 4. Tripod Base Mount blocking SD Card access. 5. Uncomfortable Handling Ergonomics. Except Lens Barrel Shadow, rest I can live with. But that's fatal flaw because it is all you get.
If you are using a GF1 which was what I wanted initially, GF3 is not an upgrade. GF5 won't be either.

Clint Dunn: To me this is almost the perfect camera...it's what the 5D2 should have been when it was originally released. I have to laugh though, all the Canon people complaining about this 'only' being 22mp are like the Nikon people who complained the D700 was 'only' 12mp....
Now Nikon releases the D800 and the Nikonistas complain that it is too many mp at 36, and lust after the 5D3....while the Canonistas who own 5D2's lust after the new D800...
I guess no one is ever happy!
@t3 dang.. u r right T3. my hatred blinds me.. So whole range of Canon don't have AF illuminator. Again realized how I hate it. How do they take photo? I guess they don't take photo indoors much? Am I the only one feeling AF Illumintator to be mandatory required feature? 5D isn't really all pro camera.
what i "hate" about Canon is that it neuters its product. 5D this one is intentionally neutered by removing AF Illuminator which should be mandatory on all camera. I am not saying it was a design decision. Canon to create builtin obsolescence intentionally NEUTERED their own product. So I HATE canon. My first Rebel was crappy POS, neutered to death. Damn this company.. haha.. my anger eats me.
facebook trashes photo.
I no longer read Newspaper. I no longer believe media. I read comments. I look at snapshots bystander took. I listen to heresy of people around. So I read reddit and 4chan(believe me it is a real source of real life). So goes all my respect to those in that field.
Journalism and Photo Journalism is dead to me. And its all your fault, you fancy tricksters. Mr. Novaks and Newsweek photo editors of these world, go to hell. My anger is deeper because I had much respect to those who took journalism seriously. I hate you all and if you are a youngster trying to make it in the world, remember, you are there for money and it comes with attention and journalism has nothing to do with it. So go for the money and you can go to hell, too.
