Re: Don't be disheartened

The difference between 2009 and now is that when other systems were starting up, the field itself was nascent. In 2012, this field has heated up, and the bar's been raised.

I own a J1 for travel and everyday use. I like it a lot for these use cases, and the new 18.5 looks promising. But as an owner, I'd like to see a stronger effort from them to iterate their products with more enthusiasm.

If they're really going for the compact upgrader market, the J2 is a weak upgrade, even in compact camera terms. They could have increased the appeal further by developing and bundling a stabilized pancake power zoom, if they really thought that size of the kit lens was a problem. But instead, we got the enigmatic 11-27.5 which isn't even bundled with the camera.
