On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 Review preview (738 comments in total)

Nice review, sounds kike Panasonic has set a new benchmark. Camera sounds terrific and the sample shots sure seem to support the high mark for the LX100.

gulffish: Phone cameras, the really good ones, are great for all of us. Will force fit a new paradyme on the way camera manufactures have to think about protecting the P&S market, if it is in fact protectable. Regardless, we're going to end up with better, more fully featured and more capable cameras whatever the form factor may be.

An interesting time in photography, intersection of several things resulting in a unique accelleration of Moore's Law. We, the consumers, are the winners and that's terrific!

A bit out of focus, not a great result full size. Lens, camera or shooter?

I agree, the incremental improvements we've beening seeing are not classic examlpes of great product planning but more of a process that trickiled improvements into the market. I'm not a fan of the conspiracy theory position but will agree that those companies in JV's and shared technology programs were not letting real competitive forces drive their new product decisions. This is going to be fun to watch over the next couple of years. Good new stuff on the way!

Nice, crisp and clear dealing well with contrast, promising.

Panasonic has done a nice overall job, a very capable camera.

On Nikon 1 V3 First Impressions Review preview (432 comments in total)

Some very impresive shots with really very good IQ, I'm just not sure where this camera fits into the market. Pricy and other cameras will equal or out perform the N1 V3 for less money. Maybe I just don't get it!

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 First Impressions Review preview (1282 comments in total)

Seems to be an interesting new long reach camera. Test shots are very nice but I would still give the IQ edge to the RX10 in terms of color rendering and detail. The FZ1000 images are too soft in my view. A combination like the a65 with the Minolta 70-210 f4.0 is still a very tough bench mark for the "do it all" cameras. Will be interesting to see the final review.

Nice sample shots but to me they look flat, 0073 is agood example. Think saturation and color density need to be kicked up.

Great, another shaggy pro camera story!

mr.izo: canon should just buy sigma (or at least foveon, sigma ideonst making money with it) and thats that..

Too bad, not quite that simple, I would guess Sigma owns the sensor IP but not absolutely positive. Originally, and still is, produced by National Semiconductor which is now part of Texas Instruments. Good idea but many players at the table.

IQ is sub par, not close to being as good as RX100.

gulffish: Another view, based on thread count today:

1. Nokon D800 223,606
2. Olympus E-M5 52,216
3. Sony RX100 42,264
4. Canon EOS 5D Mark III 4,582

Too bad there isn't a way to limit votes to those who have actually owned the camera they vote for.

Simple, search by camera and that shows thread count.
