zodiacfml: I'd rather burn money on a Zeiss Otus and a D800e.
You have your priorities straight on the sports car option.
I thought the G1X was the worthy successor to the G-series cameras. Coming out with the G16 when the G1X and the Sony RX100 are already out seems odd.
And get off of my lawn you dern kids!
The problem with the 1 system is that there are better, cheaper, smaller cameras like the micro 4/3 cameras and the NEXs. A 1" sensor can be very good, like in the Sony RX100, but the 1 system cameras are not pocketable.
So, letting my kids play with a Holga and a flash is wrong? Sheesh.
Do the people at DPreview understand the concept of the f-stop? An f1.8 lens gives the same exposure no matter how large the light circle. When I shoot medium format the exposure is not affected by the final crop I use of the image. An f-stop of f1.8 means f1.8. The f stop does not go down if you use a smaller sensor or crop the image.
dennishancock: Excuse me but this is the latest example of The Emperor Has No Clothes. That Eggleston tricycle photo is worth no more than twenty-five cents.
This is the art world where art is an investment. The actual quality of the art is secondary to the story and the fame of the artist. 10,000 better photos are uploaded to Flickr every day, but not by people with publicists.
d3xmeister: Comprison widget, and gallery slideshow not compatible with iOS. really dpreview, are you in 2013 or 2006 ?
I used have that problem with Flash, then I got an Android.
How many Rebels sell per 5dMkiii? APS-C is very popular and isn't going away any time soon. I think the 7D was taking sales from the more expensive full frame cameras, which is why they are shying away from a 7DMkii. That and they keep using the same 18MP APS-C sensor for the past several years.
So, no 7D MKII in the works? Sad really.
Which one made the most money?
spiderhunter: In this day and age, nothing is impossible. We are only limited by our own minds, afterall we are only finite.
We are only limited by our own minds. Our own minds and sometimes time and resources.
Given the RX100 and the G1X, why does this camera exist? The RX100 has pocketable with great IQ nailed perfectly. The G1X is larger with an articulating screen. The G15 is large with a small sensor and no articulating screen. Also, giving the G15 a gold and the RX100 a silver looks very much like favoritism.
Stephen_C: Before the RX100 this would have been a great camera.
My RX100 handles just fine. I really like the bounce flash on such a small camera.
Before the RX100 this would have been a great camera.
I suspect that they are correct in calling this their "Ultimate" luxury camera, as I don't see them making any more any time soon.
What, no precious stones for buttons?
Sorry, the RX-100 is simply better. The s series needs a larger sensor and brighter glass. Sony managed both.
I was expecting a gold award as well, but the RX100 did outscore the S100 by 78% to 72%. The RX100 is clearly a game changing camera that will drive the next set of compacts.
These photos are a product of the art-world culture of the time. If these images or Andy Warhol's soup cans were released today they would almost certainly be be ignored unless the artist had a great agent or some sort of publicity. They are interesting from an art-history perspective, if not very interesting to look at on their own. That said, some pretty plain photos sell for a lot of money these days as well.
