I'm sure this is an awesome piece of kit, but I cannot help to think of Bart Simpson's grandpa every time I look at the silver version. Is it just me, or do you see it as well?
stefanosensolini: Why in the pictures compared of the cameras, expecially the compact ones, DPREVIEW show always the cameras on, with the lens full out! Nobody will hold a camera in a pocket in that way, and since the reason people buys apocket camera that cost like a SLR is pocketability,the size compared with the cameras on is pointless; in this case the rx100 and fuji x10 seems similar in thickness, but if we cold see them off we probably would see a very differentpocketability!
I so agree with you. I have thought to suggest this my self many times before, but as DPR has ignored to even reply to any of my previous suggestions, I have just left if as a frustrating thought - 50 pics with the lens fully extended from all angles, but not one single pic of the camera with it in the travel position - whats up with that DPR?
Waldman Jordaan: Boy, am I glad that I kept my Nikon tc-e17ed. Now this sounds like the Super-zoom to get - and sooooo wide :)... but still no eye sensor?
An eye sensor is normally located in close proximity to the electronic viewfinder and senses when you bring the camera to your eye and then switch automaticly from screen view to viewfinder view. It is very convenient if this type of camera can do the switching for you and saves valuable time fumbeling with buttons to try and switch manually.

Dear Webmaster of DPR,I would really appreciate it if I could at least have the option to skip this silly page and go directly form the News page or emails that I receive, to the actual test or article and skip this page entirely. It wastes my time and your resources - please think about adding a direct link button or something, pretty please.
Thanks for the pics DPReview. Did you perhaps take any motion panorama pics with the converter attached? It would be nice to compare 2 motion panorama pics, one with and one without the wide adater attached, to see if one gets more vertical view, especially taken in the portrait orientation?
Well done Nikon - the classic 50mm. It should be very usable, even wide open. The pricing is spot on too. I'm sure this lens will sell like hot cakes. :)
I wonder why these Epson Rangefinders never got tested by DPReview? Looks interesting enough.
Love the concept, just wish it started at slightly wider 24mm - then it would have been on my shopping list for sure. I expect the image quality will be very good, even at higher ISO. Nicely done Canon for bringing a new innovative option to the market and I do believe that this is the right direction for the G-series to take and become a force to be reconned with once more.
johnparas11zenfoliodotcom: do any of the new pen record in stereo?
E-P3 for sure does stereo, not sure about the other 2
I wonder if new clip-in flash unit will work with the E-P2. Does anyone know?
Hate to sound negative, as I really hoped the 'improved' sensor would be a duzi. It seems that the jpg output is very, very similar to the E-PL1. Personally, I would have liked Olympus to stick with a Panasonic sensor for once, like the one in the G3, which I think is really excellent in detail, even at very high ISO. I would really like to see the dynamic range comparisons, as I suspect that not that much has changed in that department either. I do like the other overdue changes, like: fast AF, AF-assist light, flash with remote and better screen.
I like the afordability offered with these additional lenses - most companies ask more, not less, for their speciality lenses. Nicely done Pentax.
