ybizzle: The Nikon DF would be my pick. Classically styled, and gives you just what you need for photography. Video is so passé. Pure photography is what I am all about hence my love for film Leicas and the sort.
ybizzle, sounds like the Df is the right camera for you :) I hope Nikon improves on it in the future.
lem12: Does this feature works on Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX100?
Darn :) I think they could easily come up with a version for non-touchscreen cameras. I would gladly use the LX100 rear wheel to quickly select a focus range and then zoom and fine-tune from there!
Felix E Klee: Couldn't this tech be used to get shallow DOF with a smartphone?
I suppose you could, but I'm not sure the results would be very pleasing.
JEROME NOLAS: This photo viewer is hopeless, but on the other side all pics from all cameras look great..!
I wouldn't call it hopeless or nightmarish, but I would say that it's incredibly slow (I have a fast machine with a very fast connection). I like the set-up, but I find myself using it sparingly.
Horshack: Cool idea. I would have called it "Hocous Post Focus".
"Hocus pocus focus"? :)
Fantastic! And relatively efficient. Kudos, Panasonic!(Here's hoping they also make it available for the LX100...)
electrophoto: @DPreviewHow can you "forget" the D750?Can be found for approx. 1600$ (new) these days - even on Amazon for under 2000$.It's an DSLR, it's full frame, has an excellent feature set, semi-pro body and high IQ... would compete lovely with Sony's offering or Canons..why include the D610 - when for not much more you can get something better?
Hey now, let's not discount the Df ;)
Mach Schnell: Where is the Nikon D7200 in this roundup?
It'll be in the next one, for $2000+. Yes the camera is cheaper now, but DPReview are going by original MSRP to try to keep things standard/consistent over time.
Albert Silver: The D750 has been $2000 or less for months now, and is currently available for $1899 in the US.
Yeah, should have been on the list, but they are going by original MSRP to try to keep things standard/consistent over time.
pierpa: Re the new design: why GREY type on white? Good old BLACK would be more readable.
All considered, I think the new design sucks: it's ugly, less readable, and after forcing myself to read the article nevertheless, my eyes ache.
I like the design, and actually prefer dark gray type to black. Though I agree with others that the jump from a dark theme to a lighter one can be surprising, and the black bg on the rest of the site is easier on the eyes.In any case, thanks for the article!
wa2n: Is video play in Library mode working for anyone else? The play button strip is gone in mine. Win10/Nvidia.
Works fine for me. Mac.
piratejabez: My version of LR 6.2 eventually just ground to a halt, even after un-installing/re-installing LR, purging preferences, and testing different catalog files. Fortunately I was able to revert back to 6.1 and everything works perfectly again. Fingers crossed with 6.3...
So far so good!

Words ending in -able or -ablilty don't need hyphens. Just sayin'.
One of those "I don't know why they didn't think of this before!" things...
Cameracist: That tilting display... Can't. Stop. Thinking. About. That. Damn. Display...
Looks fun, but also like it's going to snap right off if something snags it...
Stefan S: I looked at the G9X and thought by myself: With the larger sensor this could be the replacement for my S100 as my pocket camera. Checked out camerasize: Looks about right, just a small bit thicker. Also I like the WiFi feature.Then I saw the dummied-down backside: no wheel, which basically looses 4 buttons as well :-/Now I am not so enthusiastic anymore, don't think this will be a buy for me.
Perhaps a discounted G7 X?
5 U modes—fantastic! And very interesting use of the dial on the right—in theory this should make changing settings (or setting u presets) quicker than a series of button clicks. Looking forward to the hands-on p/review.
Baudesign: Picture 2 shows poor assembling quality.
Yeah, either this is pre-production or they just stuck in some anti-glare material at the last minute. They won't let these babies off the assembly line looking like that.
