On Studio comparison widget article (13 comments in total)

In the case of interchangeable lens cameras, where does it explicitly say what lens was used to shoot the studio image shot? For instances, we the Olympus OM-D shot with the 12-50mm zoom, the older 14-42mm zoom, or some other legacy lens that few people use anymore. If you're not doing it already, I'd suggest shooting with the most popular package lens and then listing the identity of that lens prominently on the same page as the comparison engine.

On Fujifilm X100S preview (218 comments in total)

For going beyond the hype, this is probably the must useful page on the net for comparing different cameras in terms of their potential. It doesn't say anything about cameras' handling qualities, features or performance with different lenses, but it does provide you with a "level playing field" for rating the images' quality before those factors are considered. I'm in love with my new stalwart, the Fujifilm X110S, and by using the comparison feature I found that it is indeed better than the Fuji X100 which I bought and then sold a few thousand frames later; but it's not as good as my Olympus OM-D which I've tended to take for granted and neglect;, but it's far better than my Panasonic Lumix FZ200 which is the most versatile non-interchangeable-lens camera that I own,with which I have produced some absolutely studding photos.

On Minox announces tiny, retro-styled DCC 14.0 camera article (153 comments in total)

I would have liked it better if had used the original Minox form factor that was about the same size and shape as a BIC lighter (with square corners) or a 5-pack of chewing gum. Naturally the body would telescope out to include an EVF viewfinder. An LCD screen wouldn't be needed. Given a sharp lens and sensor, I would grab this Minox and pay around $500 for it!

On Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? article (1509 comments in total)

I'd add the Panasonic Lumix FZ200 to the list. I've gotten superb results from it that rivals my OM-D and RX100 in quality when results are blown up to 13x19" or shown on a 28" Apple Monitor; and it proved more versatile than the OM-D which I have equipped with 2 zooms and the 14mm, 25mm and 75mm Lumix lenses. Couple it with the RX100 for a 2 camera, 2 pound (total) combo. Despite theoretical problems with the small sensor, it functions extremely well in practice and the 2.8 aperture from 25mm-600mm is unexcelled by any 2012 camera regardless of price. Add weather-proofing and it would be virtually perfect.
My votes would go for the FZ200, the RX100 and the OM-D in their respective classes.
