Thanks for the comprehensive test, very helpful! I am still using my Canon D10 with good results, but thinking about an upgrade.One aspect you have not mentioned at all in the test was how well the lens coating works on the different cameras. Just back from 2 weeks of sailing/beach this was the maior issue I encountered every single day: the lens is always dirty. Either you have finger prints with sun tan lotion, or dust/dirt, or remaining (salt)water drops on the lens. Did you test how easy the water "rolls off" the lens, how scratch-proof the lens is, etc? Are there any differences between camera models at all - different glass or coating?
PS: When will I get my polarizer filter which can be turned on/off on any such camera ;-)
