petemod: It would be nice if they just made one model that had a viewfinder AND a flip out screen.
Agree! Viewfinder a good thing, but 200.000 dots - would be ok 8 years ago? If it's the same as in LF1, not very good, read the dpr review. But could be helpful in sunshine anyway. And a fine LCD.
Hoping for a enthusiast compact with the GX7 tilting EVF...
Interesting figures for Olympus and Fuji: I own it - I had it. Lots of people sell these cameras after a short time. Would make me doubt if I was interested. Better figures for Pentax.
cgarrard: Samsung's rubbing elbows with cell phone users is not going to save their photo business (what little there is of it in the first place).
Samsung had a chance to really get ahead of Sony and other mirrorless makers and totally dropped the ball. Then they ran off the field and realized later what they had done. They then try to come back into the game. Uh no... it don't work that way Samsung.
NX300 is old news, stale.
Dropped the ball, really? After enjoying G3 with 20mm for a while, got NX10 and 30mm very cheap. G3 better in low light, but in daylight NX10 is better, especially branches and leaves sharper. And VERY easy to use. And I'm sure NX300 is a LOT better. But the 60mm is twice the weight of the Oly 60mm, a problem for the NX system.
If it has a lens cap not so fond of that. Small sensor. But EVF, hooray and very good Nikon! Articulated screen. 2.0 to 4.0, fine.
But waiting for more small compacts with EVF. Maybe in a pocket 15-20 x zoom? Nikon got it right. Panasonic not? (and why is EVF specification not as important as LCD specification for some?)
Tilting EVF and LCD, and in body stabilization?! Let's hope it's up among the best. Would be nice with my 20mm. Good to see Panasonic doing something new. Must be near the top of the dpr review list?
atoz: Something affected him down in the desert.
Wasn't that Karl? Great group btw!
The picture of P520 shows tilting screen and EVF.The specification list says None and Unknown.....And - specifications for EVF is as important as for LCD - or what?
Specifications: Viewfinder type: ElectronicYes, we know that! Maybe too embarrassing to mention the 202.000? Far behind the competition. My SX20 got 235.000.
Steve Levinson: I may be naive, but why do I feel that the whole industry is in a transitional period and all we have to do is wait a bit? We (or at least I) simply want a full-frame compact mirrorless camera with interchangeable (fast) lenses, a viewfinder and a decent AF. Every high end camera has some of these features but not all. Could someone build one? Tomorrow I bet! Will they? Of course not.
Someone can next year and several the year after. Hope they get it right...
Almost perfect, LCD could have been better, fine quality of EVF - but a bit small says Norwegian reporter. Interesting to see what Canon will come up with. Small grip another so-and-so EVF + LCD and so on? Still a small sensor, but good to see somebody taking surperzooms seriously. Now what will it cost...
That's what some people looked like when I grew up, few doctors and no real health care. Those I knew did not fake it. Have not tried this position, not looking very comfortable...
Graystar: Wasn't the new Sony EVF supposed the spell the end of the optical viewfinder? Or maybe it was the EVF before that one...or maybe it was the one before that which was supposed to kill the optical viewfinder...I can't remember.
I like my optical viewfinder...stop trying to take it away!
Good news. High resolution EVFs made me continue taking photos. When you get older eyesight is not getting better. You can compose images better, less PP. Still lots of OVFs in big cameras. But it's the same with most new products, - not good enough - don't want it - don't need it. Maybe just panic that OVF will disappear. I'm glad for any progress and you still have alternatives, so be happy, don't worry!
