munro harrap: THe Image Quality is excellent, but to get the sensor from Sony did Canon have to promise not to add a viewfinder? NO viewfinder? NO viewfinder. It has not got a viewfinder. WHY???????

Having used G-series cameras with viewfinders AND swivel screens, all I should say that I ended up using the screen most of the time, as the viewfinder's accuracy was abysmal.

WilbaW: "It's perhaps not a surprise that contrast-detect autofocus is more accurate than phase-detect, since it keeps moving the lens until optimal focus is achieved..."

PD AF also keeps moving the lens until optimal focus is achieved, just in a different way. Don't fall for the myth - http://www.dpreview.com/articles/5402438893/busted-the-myth-of-open-loop-phase-detection-autofocus

So my Nikon FE-2 might come out of the closet, after so many years!

Palleman: I had a lot of fun with my Olympus OM-D EM-5. Top-feature is (for me) the Focus with detected face and identify eyes.

Agreed. My Louise is a tuxedo cat and a first class model!

I have one question to the dpreview staff: Is it possible to directly compare an advanced compact camera like the x10 to a budget SLR or ILC with an equivalent zoom lens? As you have noted, price differences are not that great...

Another possible target group for this camera, is hobbyists like myself who have older DSLRs together older compacts and are looking for enhanced capabilities, without breaking the bank...

After studying the review, I realized that almost each new digital slr (or whatever you call it) camera:
a. Offers some genuine advantages relative to previous models.
b. Introduces some disadvantages of its own, again relative to previous models.
We will see if the various trends will finally merge or different slr types are going to coexist. Interestingly Olympus E-330, the original live-view slr, offered two shooting & focusing modes. Maybe a future model will offer three!
