jonikon: The P7700 is too much camera for such a tiny sensor. Tiny sensors are just too limited for DOF control, high ISO image quality and dynamic range. With all the better alternatives of larger sensor compact cameras available today, it is hard to believe anybody would still be interested in these sensor size crippled cameras anymore. The Sony RX-100 is a much more attractive camera to photography enthusiasts. Time for Nikon to wake up and make a compact camera with a 1 inch sensor and leave the tiny sensors to the cell phones.

DOF is a problem even with a 4/3s size sensor. a 4/3s 2.8 is like a 5.6 on a full frame DSLR. A 1" sensor isn't going to solve any DOF issues. Creamy bokeh for portraits, not with this. But embrace the small sensors for what they're good at... zone focus manually and get great DOF for shot from the hip street photography or use the amazing DOF for macro.

Ummm, is the fact that the the built in flash on this little gem will act a commander for Nikon wireless TTL flash lost on everyone? As a Strobist, that and the fact that it has an electronic shutter so that i will have a virtually unlimited choice of flash sync speeds is simply amazing to me. Can't wait to get my hands on this baby.

I was pondering whether to keep my new 18-300. Beautiful lens and takes great pics, but kinda heavy as a walk around. Now it's going back for sure. No more lugging around my DSLR and a slow heavy zoom for casual shooting. With the P7700's 28-200 2.0-4.0 VR reach, this is all the camera and i need for walking around. A tiny light tripod will hold this rig steady when triggered with the $16 remote and ability to get TTL flash off camera? The possibilities are endless! Kudos to Nikon, they finally got it right for the enthusiast!
