Canon PowerShot G1 X
Nikon Coolpix P330
Sony Alpha 7
After 3.5 years plus and over 23,000 shots as a Silent shoot and commercial photography work cam, this is now in retirement as my stroll around camera and its still up to the job !! , it`s getting brassed corners on the body but lens/sensor is still clean and working beautifully. full marks for longevity, predictability and image quality ! ...... July2015 and this thing is still hanging in there !
Ultra Bargain Subcompact with a Winning Sensor / Lens combo, which are tack sharp edge to edge at F1.8 & amazing detail and DR, far beyond the performance of the LX7 or the Canon S series . lens gives about a 21mm Field of view in RAW without lens correction (DIY in PT Lens) , excellent range and superb IS . only two flies in the ointment - Speed (both writing of the Bloated RAW files and paging through the menus are way behind the times Like Coolpixes are) and the dials are non configurable making the nice command dial useless in AV mode. if Image quality is THE most important to you Get one ..
Bought barely used at the end of its shelf life as a personal camera . it`s like having a tiny 1DS-III in your coat pocket as the imager performs similarly (with the nod going to the A7) , latest firmware update has improved the single point AF to A6000 speeds (or thereabouts) . IQ is superb from the sensor in RAW through the ISO range up to 6400 anyway and the AA filter is weak, the AF bang on. and BionzX is actually pulling detail from JPGs !! (a first for sony along with the A6000) ..
Sony FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS
Possibly the ONLY decent standard zoom in E-Mount - actually pulls off the edge to edge trick wideopen unlike its "Zeiss" counterpart or any APS-C zoom..... it`s also the only Plastic E-Mount zoom (that I know of) .. shame they didn`t make it 1/2" longer as they`d have been able to have made it internal zooming and fully sealed .
