The past tense of a "re-think" has got to be "re-thunked".
Dan's Principle number 27: Reading cynical comments makes you cynical.
I think I should stop. ;-)
DanK7: The S-X1, with it's slightly larger 2/3" sensor is a better camera although not weather sealed. It's a nice option as a travel camera instead of taking a DSLR with a load of lenses. I would have thought Fuji would seal and upgrade that model before introducing the Finepix S-1.
Meant to say its vice it's - too slow to edit...

Without doubt the audience for these polls is a select group of interested, engaged and (mostly) well-informed readers, so it's no surprise that Fuji and Pentax do well against Canon, Nikon and Sony. If it were based on sales numbers and general opinion, the outcomes would likely be very different. Interesting despite the survey's limitation.
Can I really be the first comment? Need to read the article now... It's evident that putting these "comparos" together leads to some "apples and oranges" criticism, but at least it makes me look at the options from a different perspective. Thanks, DPR.
Thank you, Fujifilm! Major kudos for doing this.
I would have thought that "no eye level viewfinder" would have been listed in the "cons." This must be an oversight on the part of the reviewer, since "no electronic level" is listed.
This article is not displaying the column headings above the spec matrix, which makes it hard to tell what cameras are being compared.
There is a word missing in the section about the viewfinder. "While this idea has been extremely-received in the X100 and X-Pro1...".
Thanks for the article.

"So just how much of a threat does this represent for conventional compact cameras?" I am reminded of how the sales of wrist-watches has fallen, with fewer and fewer young people wearing them, perhaps in part due to mobile devices. On the one hand, it's nice to have a camera in your pocket at the ready; on the other, it's still a long way from replacing my DSLR.

The lack of a view finder is a fatal flaw, sorry Pentax. I like the fact that Pentax thinks a bit outside the box, but this camera is more about design than taking photographs. The cart is definitely in front of the horse.
