jodvovauk: Its back panel with buttons looks like from 1999, it's ugly.

Well, people want tilting screen, so Ricoh has no place to put the buttons but there.

Maybe 12MP 1/ sensor is no longer in production? That is why Oly is 'forced' to use the 16MP BSI sensor.

Tamron has stopped making new lenses in Pentax mount for a long time already.

Nice, but I was hoping for the rumoured DA 18-70 f2.8 instead.

Mikhail Tal: So they are going to charge $80 to change the mount on a $100-200 lens. LOL good luck with that.

For someone who switches systems, it beats selling and buying the same lens in another mount - especially if that copy is a very good one. It's a win win situation, user gets to transfer the lens to a new system, Sigma generate income.

In reply to:

samhain: Very nice review DPR, good job!

Athough i have to say- I'm a little surprised the build quality & egronomics/handling score wasn't higher. Imo- it's the best dslr body I've ever handled in terms of ergonomics + it's built like a little tank.

Agreed! I can't live without it. :) So much so that when I handle another brand's camera, I keep looking for it.

I think the LX7 is a little front focusing. The foreground objects are much sharper than the rear.

A great travel/backup camera when you already have more than a few Canon lenses. No need to reinvest in lenses in other mounts.

In reply to:

Alberto Tanikawa: Optional tripod collar... it should be standard. The lens should then really be $1623.90. That's almost the same I paid on my 70-200 f/2.8 back in 2004, and it had a collar standard.

I think an 810gm lens should be quite usable without the collar. Also I find the MRP reasonable (street price should be lower). Pentax users has to pay US$1900 for the 60-250 f4. That extra 50mm is insignificance. Crop the photo slightly at 200mm and I would get the same end result.
