JohnnyRC: I am liking the fact panasonic is focusing on expanding the range of these compact system cameras. I am surprised that there doesn't seem to be a lot of compact extreme wide angle cameras on the market (i.e. 14mm equiv.) This makes these models all the more handy and a lot lighter than a full frame DSLR with 14mm lens. Hats off to Panasonic for their wide angle 4/3 lenses. If you want to make this camera perfect, add aperture and exposure comp. dials and GPS and weather seals. GPS is high on my hit list. I use my camera for cataloging architecture, especially when travelling. There are many places that do not have easy street addresses and GPS provides me with a quick ability to Geolocate buildings and other features for future research purposes. Saves having to pull out notebooks and/or use phone to duplicate shots.

I think you can link location gps coordinates with a smartphone using WiFi connectivity

A terrific video review. I learned a lot watching it. This is a very good way to present a new camera.

wootpile: good samples, shows the limitations of the lens, perhaps the format

Ridiculously expensive camera! same pricepoint as a Fuji kit!

Correction, Panny has a 25/f1.4 with AF, AND there are many wonderful f0.95 manual-focus lenses, all with very high qualities. Do SONY and FUJI make fast lenses like these?

Do you pay less? My bill for Cable TV, Internet, and cell phone is more than $200/month in California.

On Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? article (1509 comments in total)

I'm disqualified since I have not used any of the cameras in the poll. Otherwise, I'd vote for Sony's X100 because it was such a surprise camera.

I sure seems that Sony is leading everyone else with their sensor technology!

Jogger: Nokton 25 0.95 should be on that list. Its certainly interesting.

I agree. This list is biased to Nikon and Canon cameras?

Somehow this is becoming a little insane. A fixed lens camera for $600 is a bargain! I must be in some other universe of camera owners... Al

Souciantmag: What a puff piece. It's not journalism - it's an ad.

If this isn't a puff piece, then why only talk about the iPhone? There are other smartphones with even better cameras, yet your piece only mentions the iPhone. Thus I concur that this is more an Adv than a journalistic piece.
