On Roundup: Enthusiast Zoom Compact Cameras article (424 comments in total)

I've settle with carrying around my 60D even when its bulk is inappropriate to the occasion. I gave my S90 to my wife which she soon wore down. I then gave her my LX5, a sad farewell. I enjoyed the LX5's fast metering, focusing presets, fast focus, and generally great image quality. I sold my G10 - not happy with its range, though the image quality was okay.

Now, that the game has changed, I'm back in the market for one of these "enthusiast" cameras.

I'm hung up on sensor size. I'm leaning towards the RX100. Am I for all the wrong reasons?

Could someone tell me what the sensor size accomplishes in terms of resolution, etc?

My pick would be the LX7 only because I loved the responsiveness of the LX5. What does "largest image area" accomplish in terms of resolution, etc?

On Nikon D600 Hands-on Preview preview (712 comments in total)

The in-camera AF motor would be a selling point for me.

*How deep into other manufacturers' lenses are we talking about?

With companies such as Fotodiox, it seems most probable that Nikon could only improve on compatibility issues if its in-camera AF motor would inspire companies such as Fotodiox to fabricate a corresponding adapter.

I'm invested heavily in Canon family lenses. Saving up enough money to buy the 5D MIII seems further off than I'd like. The D60 is a wonderful camera -- so is all the EOS cameras.

*Canon seems to be trickling down all the technology from its higher end cameras, except for what is most important, the full frame.

If the history between Nikon and Canon casts any truth on the future, Canon should be following suit soon. If they don't, I might have to take my six Canon lenses and buy the Nikon D600, though it would be personally heartbreaking.
