I like the look of it actually. Reminds me a lot of the Nikonos RS which was a great camera.
uzzy88: I can note the absence of two fondamental competitors: nikon P7700 and fuji X-S1. I wonder which is the point of this comparison, most of this cameras have already been reviewed separately on this pages.
P7700 was mentioned in the Canon G15 writeup. The P7700 does not have an optical viewfinder which is a big deal breaker for some myself included.
The Fuji X-S1 though on paper a really nice camera had a rough start with sensor issues.
