DPR: "We've tended to find this noise reduction can be rather heavy-handed, even in the 'low' setting, sometimes misidentifying low-contrast detail and blurring it away."
The USA is where mirrorless cameras (all brands) come to die and be dumped at deep discounts, so it's hard to blame Canon for not making current EOS M bodies and lenses available here.
Perhaps in the future, they will try again...
Big camera: 17% wider and 9% taller than a Canon SL1 /100D DSLR.
DPR: "dramatic styling"

DPR: "The a6000's kit lens isn't great from an image quality point of view, regularly producing images with very poor corners ..."
That's a significant flaw, that should have prevented it from getting a Gold Award.
DPR has been drinking too much Sony Kool-Aid. :-)
I'm unshocked by this announcement.
For comparison, the Canon SL1 /100D DSLR is 8% narrower, 5% shorter, (20% thicker), and weighs 7% less than the Samsung NX30.
So much for the size advantage of mirrorless, at least in this case.
US$999.99 (list price) for a Samsung brand camera? I don't think so.
The pop-up EVF is an interesting idea, but I wonder about its long-term reliability, in terms of continuing to go up and down.
James Pilcher: This is the future with Adobe and any other company that forces you to use "the cloud" in any fashion. Can you say "Office 365?"
Oh, and don't think that Lightroom is going to remain separate from Creative Cloud all that long.
I like Adobe's products, I no longer care for it's business practices and policies.
With Office 365 Home, I think the full office software is on your hard drive, and the cloud document storage is optional.

Even with the introduction of three new models, Nikon can't keep up with the breakneck development speed of Canon's EOS M line. :-)
Listed as currently available on the Nikon USA web site: J1, J2, J3, J4, S1, S2, V1, V2, V3, AW1.
So as Nikon releases the J4, it apparently still has a warehouse full of J1s, among other old models.
Nikon could use some better inventory/model management.
(DSLRs) I think Nikon Red looks much nicer than Canon White.
"The word on the street is that these lenses..."
On my street (sniff), nobody talks about lenses. :-)
US$800 for no viewfinder and a sensor that's smaller than APS-C is a tough sell.
US$1,100 for the camera plus a viewfinder is a tougher sell.
With their mediocre-at-best 16-50mm lens, Sony decided that (small) size was more important than quality - a shame.
This camera isn't expensive enough. I'm waiting for a version that's plated in 24 carat gold.
pfzt: USB2? No WiFi? No GPS?
They still don't understand their competition and market.
Nikon understands product differentiation. You don't put every available feature in your bottom-of-the-line DSLR.
