On Sony drops list price of Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 article (198 comments in total)

The credible reviews that have come out so far point to both cameras being solid, with both having varying features that will sway a consumer into buying based on their personal preferences.
Nothing complicated here, Sony did what it had to do, to compete with the launch of the FZ1000. Personally the Sony camera specs didn't do it for me andr my needs. Kudos to both companies for producing good cams.

saralecaire: Still more expensive than the brand new and 4K capable Panasonic FZ1000.

- Tilt screen only
- Metal body, like that makes it a deal breaker..really
- Clickless ring likely in response to many complaining it was too easy to accidentally change a setting
- "This is supposed to be a video camera also right?" Uhmm, no, the GH4 is. This is your all in one, like the Sony, only it varies on features that Panny thinks are important.
- Not sure where this camera skimps on quality. What it does is prioritize its features based on what they think are consumers' needs. Don't assume your needs are everyone else's.

Well I hadn't been on DPReview for some time...after seeing this article I can see I didn't miss anything. I'm an Apple FREAK and I cringed when I saw this idiotic article. DPR should be embarrassed.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to read an interesting article in Popular Mechanics where an electrician uses his Smartphone as a flashlight...and likes it!!!

Yayy! clicking on my recent threads shows an error message. What a waste of time. I can't even find my bloody forum.

Other than the option to post images at three different resolutions (which about 50% of the time the middle size didn't load properly, everything else seemed to work ok in the previous version. I get that beer companies re-brand their labels to amuse their consumers, but this is junk. In terms of evolving, I'd take a page from McDonalds.

Great, first Facebook and their never ending "improvements" and now this. I didn't realize the FZ200 was a compact.

A traveling/event shooter's lens as far as I'm concerned and it definitely has a market. Of course it doesn't answer everyone's personal issues, but once that lens becomes a used item on Ebay, I'll be watching.
