I'll say this camera manufacturer follows photographer demands more than others. I do mostly landscape photography and in difficult lightning conditions have to guess WB or 'set and try' option as all camers offer. There's one very simple option/tool which non cameras offer, to set proper WB or at least go by the tool that defines it closer than any Auto WB. Could camera maker include a simle on cap WB filter and WB setup based on that. Panasonic does make 'on string' lens cap, could it make that cap attached to WB filter and filter attached to the lens, all two parts are separate pieces and when WB needs to be measured the filter could be locked on.
Good performance considering ISO3200 at F2.8 in poor lightning.
Very nice low light performance and detailed too, great example.Thanks!
Very pleasant color rendition, such joyful look.
Nukunukoo: RX20 is rumoured to come this month. This will be interesting...
Just by its lens, sensor size and MP's this compact is the winner. I have no need for video in my cameras. Don't know how good 4k is for single frame capture. but it's a nice feature to have....
lem12: Looks like it's a serious compact with no fluff, aimed at advanced and pro users.
Waiting for full review and samples.Thanks!
Just wanted to say that this is a great development. The largest sensor in compact and fast zoom lens with controls. Low MP's (this I count as an advantage). Has a very good view finder. Takes HDR shots and in camera Panorama stich. This would be a compact for me.

Simply well thought compact camera. These are the features and plus large sensor someone would need for quality photo.
Well made photos! Very natural skin tones and low ISO performance.. The portrait at ISO320, F4 is a perfect example.Thanks!
lem12: Any Sweep Panorama options?
I always hope they will with the new one. But lets wait till full camera review.
Len_Gee: How is it that many "own it" or say they've " had it " when it hasn't even been released yet? I don't understand how that could be so.
Welcome to anonymous world with no boundaries!
Couldn't see much difference between ISO 1000 and 2500. ISO 1000 as clean and detailed as ISO 400 of some Bayer sensors.
Bervilat: YESSSS!!! High ISO shots with pepole's faces on the pub.Why is it always so hard for reviewers to do this? Nice job, DPreview.
The portraiture is perfect for samples it shows the fine detail, color rendition, bokeh, high iso... Thanks!
Does Canon Photostitch 3.1 comes in the box with the camera's soft?
HDR, ND filter, iContrast and Shadow Correct, Bracketing, Custom WB?
Any Sweep Panorama options?
beavertown: This shows Canon will always be ahead of Nikon.
Sad for no competition.
I don't think that Nikon will chase Canon making a faster camera or similar in speed not even DX format. For Nikon to get faster than its own current DX models is to use a 16MP sensor which I doubt they will. New models seemed to get more expensive than earlier models. I thought more we invest into digital cameras less expensive they become. There's no real affordable DSLR model, some of us buying beginner/consumer models. In 1999 I had a great camera the Nikon N80 bought for $400 new, had all I could ask from a camera.
Does Sony NEX 5T captures sweep panorama held only horizontally as the NEX C3? I read somewhere that some newer NEX models can capture panoramas held vertically. I searched for this info online but can't find clear description.
