I have the OMD-EM5 + Panasonic 24-70 lens, while I like it but it seems like the LX-100 beats this combo in everyway (slightly longer zoom, bigger aperture, smaller package, cheaper, wi-fi and built-in flash).
2 refinements would make this camera the perfect camera (maybe Mk4) for me:
1) 24-100mm2) touchscreen
The AW120 maybe THE camera I want for scuba diving. I just got an open water scuba diving license and the deepest I have went is 20m so far. I hate those hardcase which is expensive, bulky and have to be taken on/off everytime.
gl2k: When it comes to low-light photography HTC One wipes the floor with all other contestants.
...and with a fast lens, preferrably f1.4 or larger
I have this lens and I love it!
It is small, tactile and super fast AF with the OM-D.I use the touchscreen as shutter and it auto-focuses almost instantaneously.
I think this lens is sharp, but because the bokeh is not very shallow (can't expect too much as it is a 17mm 1.8, not 45mm 1.8), the subject doesn't stand out as much and hence makes it look relatively less sharp.
marike6: I'd like to see Panasonic get rid of the ribbed, knurled focus ring. They are dust magnets. In three days, my new PL 25 1.4 had so much lint on the focus ring, it looked like a used lens. Even the 42.5 1.2 prototype seems covered in lint. The tight ribbing of the AF ring just collects it.
I couldn't agree more.
RXVGS: This lens will sell like hot cakes!
They will sell like hot pancakes!
I wish Polariod could stay in the niche area and produce instant print cameras.
They have the Z230 in the past which is a 10MP camera that allows instant print without ink. It doesn't have any zoom and the IQ couldn't compete with others but it is such a fun camera to use imagine going to a party.
Dpreview once said the scoring/award is a relative indicator.
Having used many P&S I truly think the RX-100 deserves a gold award in the P&S category.
I wish dpreview could produce a comparison (of portraits) of bokeh between the RX100 and its peers, at both wide and tele-end.
With sensor size of these premium compacts getting bigger and bigger, we are now able to get some subject isolation effect that is once reserved for DSLR.
I'm a 5D2 user planning to upgrade to 5D3.
I'm an amateur photographer so to me the small difference in image quality between 5D3 and D800 doesn't really matter to me.
However, there are 2 features in the D800 that I sorely miss in the Canon.
1) Built-in flash. To many professional it is under-powered and useless. But when I go to vacation and hiking I use fill-flash a lot. It is just a pain to have to bring a separate flash unit.
2) Crop factor change. D800 and D700 allows user to switch to DX mode (1.5x crop). I shoot a lot of birds and wildlife so this feature is very useful to me.
I would rather they update the Digilux 2.
Just put a new sensor, processor and a better LCD/EVF and they will have another big seller.
