aandegoons: I like where Nikon is going. Camera's for active photographers. Far too often I find myself looking out the window or checking the weather forecast and leaving my camera home.
That is why I shoot pentax..........
atamola: DP reviewer: "Ok guys, Just finished. Quick, we need something negative to say about the camera? Anyone?
Guy 1: "well, maybe we can say that the Interface and controls can be overwhelming"
Guy 2: "All interfaces and controls at this level are. We should add **initially**"
DP reviewwer: "Great. We need more"
Guy 1: "we can say... (pause)..."
Guy 2: "... that the In-camera Raw conversion interface is somewhat unintuitive!!!"
DP reviewer: "You are a god-send!!! What else!? What else!?"
Guy 1: "We can say that Auto focus with Four Thirds lenses is slow"
Guy 2: "but it is not"
DP reviewer: "Let's add **in dim conditions with tricky subjects**"
Guy 1: "What are tricky subjects??"
DP reviewer: "Stay focused, damn it! We need to say negative things!! got it?? Got it??"
Guy 2: "If that's the case why not that the "Multi-screen live view interface looks very dated"
DP reviewer: perfect, we are almost done.
You make a good point. When you consider there are not many lenses for the ff sonys, and virtually none at affordable prices, one would think silver was more the colour n'est ce pas???
Master Yoda: Yes, the ASPC sensor would be nice . . . yes an even longer zoom would be nice . . . yes the price is a bit steep . . . YES they are going to sell a TON of these!
No they will not at that price dpr microcosm not withstanding. Mom and pops shooters will never pay those prices.
Too expensive, no thankyou
Interesting, we shall see soon.
Sure am, love my K5 and my film camera pz-1 and limited glass, superb.
rallyfan: The Sigma DP "M" series offers excellent solutions to questions very few are asking and for which even fewer are willing to pay; a very impressive evolutionary dead end that sold slowly and performs even slower. Dreary cameras lacking what Ignatius J. Reilly would call the proper geometry and theology, taste and decency.
The rest are good choices.
Take those pills man, you'll feel better........
I would have to agree my man.
If I had deep pockets, I would own all the merills, what sheer fun.
Dédéjr: Whatever man,
I have lr 4.4 i like it and am keeping it.
How many chaps have overpriced showpony macs or iphones hmm??? Lots i bet.
yep "until" as i do not buy cameras every time there is something new and shiny, i am cool for a long time.

Godwins law, well well well.
Guenter Borgemeister: >the Editors Awards were given to the Canon EOS 6D and Sigma's DP Merrill series of compacts.
Wouldn´t it be time for the dpreview team to review the DP Merrill series?
no worries luminous landscape reviews the merrills and the rest for sure.
nplanet: The Sony RX1 is such a big step forward that no other company is even close to releasing something similar.
Going to marry that camera man???
The ultimate cameras in iq we have today. If that is dreary, well sorry for you man.
PicOne: Might this mean that DPR will wake up a bit and perhaps attempt a review of a Merrill compact?
yeeees!!chap over at luminous landscape said the problem with the merril 3 was it was too sharp, he often de-sharpened the images!! Too sharp for most folks as well.
Quite simply the merills image quality is the best there is.
usability sucks sure.
It was allright up to Ikea!!
Seriously now not a bad idea, fun stuff i suppose.
Problem is a society which does dictate what we should find funny cool sexy intellectual or be outraged about, all countries and cultures do this though, now it is global.
Hulamike: You all sound like a bunch of geriatric gear freaks. I suppose you think your cookie-cutter, Hipstamatic, bleached, scratched, vignetted, rayed, look alike canned "Art" is more appropriate. Right!
This guys idea is awesome! His GF is awesome! His editing and color is awesome. The whole thing is fun and interesting. Really, its time for some of you to get a clue, broaden your perspective maybe, unclench those buttocks.

Wish I could nominate this post for post of the year!!
Camera of the year?? Steady on now, year has only just begun!!
JustinL01: I see we are still getting a load of comment from people that haven't tried the RX1 out and yet feel they know enough to dismiss and criticise it, once again the AF is not slow it is fine and accurate in normal usage.
The quality of the pictures rival the FF DSLR's such as the Nikon 800/800E etc etc without the bulk. As for the lens not resolving the same detail as a C3 and the serious flaw of vignetting easy to correct.
Read the reviews and what the professional photographers who are actually using the RX1 seem to be disagreeing with the internet reviewers, funny that!
OH i dunno mate maybe "in my eyes this camera is destined to be a classic"Telling somebody else all you can do with the 35mm lens etc etc you might as well face it your a fanboy, embrace it!
mumintroll: This camera NEVER can reach picture quality of Merrill DP2 on basic ISO. NEVER. You don't believe? Check this images and compare with RX1.Images are in discussion from Frank.http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/sigma_dp1_merrill_review/comments/
Yes if sigma could sort it out the merrills kick ALL sensors arses.
