nerd2: Actually I think RX 100 III can be better than this. LX100 has larger sensor but it is not BSI - so noise per ISO can be actually better with RX, and RX has much higher MP too. Lens spec is almost equivalent (if we ignore equivalence, just like panasonic does for marketing)
And RX is more compact and has flip LCD too (which should matter a lot for the target audience of these cams)
That's fine. You can keep the RX100 III (no Hot Shoe, poorer EVF, smaller 1" sensor). I'll go with the better camera - the LX100.
HeyItsJoel: G7X > GX7.
And while we're at it, E=MC2.
You are clearly no physicist, nor a photographer.
The larger sensor GX7 >>> G7X
raztec: Fabulous camera. Almost perfect, but not quite there yet.
I'll keep my LX7 for now and wait for the LX200 with a better EVF, 24-90mm lens, and tilting LCD which in this era is critical for video.
Okay, you do that. Wait another year or more.
Dimac: too big and too ugly and missing things, deleted from my wish list
Goodbye. We definitely won't miss you.
luiseg: Neglected and dirty fingernails......
Are you talking about yourself?
5-axis image stabilization? Once again, Olympus leads the way on innovation and the big boys follow.
MPA1: No VF no buy...!
Get the Pany LX100.
Markol: This could have been so nice but no flash? Not even a small one for fill flash use? Hell they fit one in the GM1. Bummer.
I would rather have the hot shoe than a built-in flash. The LX100 has the hot shoe and clip-on flash.
Beat Traveller: Is that a camera or an electron microscope?
No, it's an MRI. Now bend over...
Darren Lee: wtf did i just look at? thought it was a tripod head or something.
Take a deep breath and drink some more wine. Feel better now?
Debankur Mukherjee: This camera was surely designed in Mars.........
Oh, come on now. You can't accuse Sigma of having the camera designed by Martians. Give them a break.
Chris62: Nothing special.
Oh, really , and at what price? Don't tell me - you want all the bells and whistles for $500, right? Another cheapskate.
cjyphoto: I think I'm done with Fuji. Will continue to add to my Canon system.
HAHAHA - you can have your Canon. You clearly have no clue how to properly use a Fuji. Your loss.
kewlguy: I don't understand why people complain - you don't like it you don't buy it, you want a cheap 18-135 you buy Canon APS,... Even a 4/3 user complained because of the MFD compared to Oly lens? LOL what's up with that?
To The Name is Bond - You don't know squat about the quality. And you don't own the lens. I do own the lens - and it is EXCELLENT. Next time, try actually holding and using a lens before you open your mouth and criticize it.
cgarrard: DPR, you forgot about mentioning the flash. Fine, I'll tell readers then...
When you depress the flash button, a small disco ball pops up and the speaker plays deadmau5.
Carl - I'm surprised at you. That is just mean <grin>.
mpgxsvcd: For the average consumer the FZ1000 will make GH4 owners wish they had waited a few months.
Correction: You have the larger 43 sensor in your GH4, NOT m43 sensor, as there is no such thing.
Wubslin: I owned a Panasonic camera once and it made me give up photography.
And Wubslin, your comment was totally worthless. You can apologize to Valiant Thor.
Biological_Viewfinder: This review is nothing new at all.
I have purchased Panasonic cameras because of DPR reviews, and EVERY SINGLE TIME I WAS EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTED.
I'm never going to fall for it again.
You obviously don't know what you're doing.
Unfortunately, the Sony and Panasonic superzooms with the 1" sensor are going to kill this Pentax in the marketplace. I'm surprised that Ricoh went ahead and announced this camera. The only reason some of you will buy the Pentax is because of the price (and I am not anti-Pentax as I have a Pentax K30).
mwstebbins: I just bought this camera at the HIGHER price. IT has NOT yet arrived at my house. Does anyone know if SOny will rebate the difference? Or do I have to send the camera back to them UNOPENED, and buy another one? Thanks. M
If you bought it from Sony you can send it back and get your money back. I did this with a Sony compact several months ago. As an added caution, to avoid any issues, do not open the camera box. Just contact them by phone and get the details from them for the return.
