carlo trevisan: I don't get the low score as I didn't get the D3100 low score.
(I own a D3100 myself)
Nex7, as a D3200, is not poketable... So why should I spend more money on a Nex7? Where is IQ advantage?
In my opinion, Dpreview should write it in the D3200 cons list: "Mirrorless is smart and cool, DSRL is old tech (-5 score)"

Dpreview compares it with some mirrorless cameras (conclusions).
A great live-view experience is probably important for people coming from compact cameras (I was one of them 4 years ago), but I think that great image quality, a good optical viewfinder, great lens selection (if you want, you can), a good price... are important points for people coming from the average compact camera. Most people prefer downgrade to smartphones than upgrade to mirrorless or DSRL. Mirrorless are bulk cameras for most people I know (my girlfriend in primis...)
I had an Olympus E-pl1. Nice camera... but images from my old D40 where better. I also shot only in M mode (Fn set to ISO), and a Dsrl is perfect for this. When I walk around I just pick up a compact camera or use Instagram.

So, if you upgrade thinking about your skills as photographer, I belive a Dsrl is the way to go. (+5 points to the Dpreview live-view-oriented conclusions!)

On How the iPhone changed my photography article (105 comments in total)

"Art tends to facilitate intuitive rather than rational understanding, and is usually consciously created with this intention."
from Wikipedia

Today, I feel that our "intuitive understanding" is closely related to instant sharing. My artistic/great/photoshopped shot is nothing if I share it a month late.
So instant sharing and simple, creative and fun to use apps make the iphone the best photographic tool available (probably?)
The future of our DSRL and mirrorless cameras should be this: instant sharing and cool, third party photographic apps. Megapixels and ISO are a non-issue

PS: I'm not paid by Apple, I don't own an iPhone but I'm planning to buy one asap.
