compared to this little gem the Nikon 1 sucks ... sorry Nikonhope to see some nice portrait shots with shallow dof sooner than later
"crammed full of fun features ..." From what I've seen, most P&S users just know how to turn on the cam and push the release button.
The scope image does it. Will all picture look like this one in the future ?Nothing in focus except a tiny area ?
In Europe the NEX-5 with kit lens is cheaper than the Ricoh.So ... who buys the Ricoh P&S ?omg ... are customers really that stupid ?
In Europe 530€ ... the SB-900 is about 330€ (incl. VAT)200€ premium for ... uhm dunno
Guess it's time to buy a couple of almost cheap SB-900s.
I wish they would also design a dedicated flash unit for each module. So I would be able to spend even more money for redundant gear. *LOL*
The term "NEW" obviously makes people buy almost everything.
wanna see a shootout between this cam and the Panny FZ150
Why so much whining & crying ?
If you are a pro a few hundred bucks don't matter.If you are a hobby shooter, why the hell do you need PS at all ?
IEBA1: The color balance on the whole thing is off, or the colorimetry on the pre-selected cameras is wonky. Look at the paper clips: Nikon & Panny are bordering on green, while the Canon & Olympus are bordering on red/pink. And this is for the silver paperclips which are reflecting "white" light.
Same grouping when you select the model's face in the upper right- the Canon & Olympus are clearly more red.
But then, select the "blue" watch face and the situation is reversed- the Nikon & Panny now have _more_red in them than the Canon & Olympus.
Really makes you question the accuracy of all these cameras.
I think a lot of people here at dpreview don't care about anything else than ISO 3200 & beyond. So the colors are of little interest.
This test chart tells very little about the true capabilities of a cam. I'd like to see real skin, real sky, real foliage, ... but I confess this wouldn't be comparable.
That's only half of the truth.The other half ... Nikon & Canon are the only two brands that deliver a complete system where every photog finds something at pro level in the FX/DX class.
All other brands lack this kind of "completeness".Seen under this perspective "Canikon" is not more expensive than other brands.Finally ... you get what you pay.
Seems that more and more manufacturers step back to a reasonable 10 MP. Which is more than enough for that purpose. A few years ago a 10 MP cam would have been unsalable.Nice to see anyway.
X10 : 12 MP, VF, built-in flash, hot-shoe, fast glass ... now compare this to the Nikon J1/V1.
I'd like to see a comparison shooting to the Panny FZ150. Do both cams play in the same league ?
If you compare them sizewise please add an external viewfinder to the Panny, otherwise you compare apples to oranges.

At first I was impressed by the body design and control elements of this cam. Additionally the larger sensor sounded very promising. So I started looking for images to check the quality. Now I'm slightly disappointed. The IQ is slightly better than that of an average P&S but definitely below the Nikon J1.
It's not that they are bad. Rather too close to an ordinary P&S.
I only went for the ISO 200 images.http://www.lenstip.com/1949-news-Fujifilm_X10_-_sample_images.htmlhttp://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/x/fujifilm_x10/sample_images/
If the image quality holds what the body design and sensor promises --> I'll buy it.Nikon P7100 has wonderful body and controls but image quality is disappointing.Nikon V1/J1 has great image quality but the body design is kinda poor joke.
What about minimum flash sync ? --> can it use flash at 1/1000 ?At f2.8 in mid day that comes in handy to brighten up the shadows.
Wolfgang Fieger: I will buy this a77 most likely, but I'm disappointed by the senseless 24MP sensor. As to be expected it brings noise without the advantage of real higher resolution because the lens isn't able to deliver this resolution, or most likely, the AF is never ever this sharp on focus to have any benefit of 24 MP.And generally:Even if the system would deliver real 24 MP of visible picture resolution, no one would mention it: there's no screen or beamer out there that visualizes more than 3 MP. And who of you does regularly paper enlargements at A2 format?
Interesting, amazing & amusing
You are disappointed by the cam.You don't like the noise.You don't need 24 MP.You believe that no lens can resolve 24 MP.
Why the hell than would you buy this cam ?
feedmatekill: I have a remark on "12fps af tracking"...You say only frame 5 is sharp.....it isn't really, is it?and why is that? - because 1/1000 @ f5.6 isn't enough for action that fast AND camera is clearly shaken. If You look more closely You'll see that nothing in frame is sharp, whole picture is slightly blurred, nothing on the picture is really sharp. There is no DOF line of sharpness on the ground or anywhere else....
So, it isn't AF's fault - it's a bad photographer :)
P.S. on frame number 5, the object was braking - slowing down. so that's why only that frame was sharp enough.... I'm very surprised dpreview missed something so obvious.
dpreview also didn't mention that even at Canon & Nikon only the most expensive pro lenses are fast enough for motor sports.So the questions raises : Did dpreview used a dedicated pro lens suitable for sports action ?
This is the ultimate semi-pro cam for studio sessions. Especially beauty and fashion photography. 24MP for a really low price.
But quite funny that a 2007 D300 does better overall when it comes to high speed shooting. 8 fps without any limitations at all.The quirks with aperture and AF on the A77 is very strange.
Other than that ... well done Sony.
I love the picture with the two hands holding the cam. So ... this is considered small and compact ? It's as big as any other cam in this league.
The only thing that is indeed small on the "1" series is the sensor. Well done Nikon.
