piratejabez: Looks promising! But please, please don't get addicted to these buzzfeed-style clickbait titles...
You won't believe what happens next...
Retzius: Nikon's answer will be a D7100 with wifi, GPS, and bigger buffer, and a few minor tweaks. I've given up on a "true" D400. Nikon's heart isn't in it, they think FF is the answer.
Their loss. I'm this close to switching systems.
Ken Aisin: Hey Nikon, Canon's done it. Now, where is our D400?
Jonathan F/2: I don't get what people are complaining about. There's still a huge market for APS-C DSLR shooters. A D7200 with the D750 body would be a killer DX camera if Nikon chose to release it.
Dear Nikon: D300 successor, please. Thx.
Great review. With their amazing Sony sensors, I sure wish Nikon would stop messing around and develop a worthy D300 successor to compete with this and other impressive bodies...
Zoron: If it got a body flash......that would complete everything I want that my D300 doesn't have........full frame...5-axis stabilization....video....flip screen....
Agreed! Plus many of the strong points of the D300—magnesium alloy frame, good ergonomics, fast and responsive, hi-res screen, easy access to many settings... Shame Nikon doesn't have anything like what the likes of Sony and Fuji have been producing.

(sorry, quick grammar niggle on the last page: "any other camera's in this roundup")
LOLOLOLOL. That is all.
BadScience: Many posters have suggested that the silvery tones of the original are preferable.
I took the liberty of attempting to adjust the contrast in the luminosity channel only - the result is in my gallery.
Mind- the image was a 2 minute exercise using only a screen grab from this site. There is no way a decent result can follow from that; only an idea of what is possible. I will remove the image at Erez's request.
Fantastic! B/w compression with red filter simulation yields a similarly striking, high-contrast landscape that accentuates the patterns in the sand and tones in the sky.
PocketTool: This is an amazing camera and I'm enjoying the heck out of it. So far the only gripe I have is that you can assign the function buttons to a custom task but it's not sticky...so the first time you shut it off and then turn back on your custom settings are gone.
Hopefully they adopt the firmware update habits of Fuji as well... (they did do this with the LX5 a while back)
This grip made a huge improvement on my S90. I find it strange that Canon doesn't make use of this free real-estate (that also makes for improved handling) for a larger battery or something.
piratejabez: In slide 3, the upper fourth or so of the image is blurred (look at the mountain top)... assuming this is post-processing?
Yes, whatever it is, it was applied evenly across the top of the frame. It's just strange seeing this type of PP on DPR, but I guess it's a guest slideshow so whatever :)
TEBnewyork: Hi Richard -
My camera arrived today so looking forward to working with it...how is the auto lens cap working out? Looking around for one...found silver even though no silver cameras out yet.
I love the auto lens cap I got for my LX7. Lots of people comment on it, too, like it's some kind of advanced, new technology :)
WACONimages: 1502 posts... about this camera. That must be kind of a record this year...
7d has (amazingly) even more... http://www.dpreview.com/articles/9090306601/canon-eos-7d-mark-ii-studio-samples-added-to-first-impressions#comments

Wow, SO much more detail! Thanks for the conversions, Barney :)
goblover: Is it just me, or the Canon G7x sample was motion blurred? And the LX100? If you see the top left and bottom right, the red water colour paint, and colour circle on the bottom left, the letters are blurred. The circle also not a full circle, a bit distorted. I'm not the expert, maybe DP Reviewers can help clarify why is that?
What Altruisto said; lens distortion.
Discovery Of Light: I like the LX100 but it seems to blow out highlights on faces under tungsten light more than the others. Maybe that has more to do with white balance than advantages of the larger sensor.
Agreed... strange color shifting around skin tones, highlights, and shadows compared to the others shown here.
carlnor: Photography Blog review.
"The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 is the most capable compact camera that we've ever reviewed..." High praise...
