I'll sell you my a7r to fund a D810 :)

The standard on the a7r (I own one) is 100 and yes it can go down to L50 which is still different than the D810, which standard is ISO 64 with L32. Again, I don't know the inside story between Sony & Nikon but based on the sensor sensitivity (ISO), they are different... that's all!!!

francis jay: Im a d700 user before but when the d800 came up I was like no I dont need that meg pixel so I jump to fujifilm but I still want d700s with 12 or 16 megapixel

Then you should consider the Nikon DF, great upgrade and inline with the D700

Good question but I don't believe so especially from an ISO perspective being 64 (d810) vs. 100 (a7r).

lacroix75: Today, I'm not a CC subscriber and will continue using CS6 for years to come. However, the reality is that the "bug" for a subscription model is out there and it's only a matter of time until many of us will eventually cave in if we need the latest and greatest in photo processing feature and power. Adobe and other software giants who are currently using the subscription model realize that eventually CS6 will be a thing of the past as they continue to improve and advance their CC features (not the case today); thus we will all gradually get "sucked into it".

Advanced features are key but it'll take time to get there and convince me to join CC. For me personally, I'll consider joining the subscription model when enough advances justify the need for my work.

As far as iPhone & iPad APPs, they're nice perks but they're not a selling point for me at all and agree with Joe & Magnus3D about being a Dino...

@Prognathous & @RichRMA
Over the past 15yrs, I've used/tried different options but would NEVER consider any of them as alternatives. Even the freeware out there that claim to be an alternative aren't robust enough and don't fit well in my workflow. Don't get me wrong, they work for some but not for me.

Again, for me, I will simply continue using LR5 & CS6 until CC has a significant leap in features then I'll consider the subscription concept; this may be couple years from now...

Kokeen4231: This is the closest competitor to leicas and the sony RX1. If the price is right, I would rather have this.

@ Aristone: don't get me wrong, I have a D800 and it's great but the X100s will be my business travel companion as it fits nicely in my laptop case :)

I ended up with the X10 as my sidekick. First impressions, the camera looks retro and is certainly made of high quality material. I have not had the chance to test it yet because I'm debating whether I should exchange it for the X100. As far as the other 5 cameras in this review, the top two after the x10 were the LX5 and Nikon 7100. Despite the huge price difference, I still went for the X10 for having a CMOS and the much higher build quality than any of the others. For price and quality alone, I would have probably chose the LX5. The bottom line is that all of these cameras are and will perform about the same, it's really a matter of what system you prefer and what price fits in your budget.
