IQ performance beats G15 pretty handily

And this is a bit of a personal pet peeve re: DPR, but notice how the IQ of the P7700 pretty thoroughly thrashes the Canon G15.  But DPR: a) probably won't even review the P7700 except as a group review b) gave the G15 a Gold Award and talk about it as if it's the gold standard in enthusiast compact, when not only does the P7700 have better overall IQ, considerably nicer looking JPEGs, and features like the tilt/swivel LCD.  And even clearly superior cameras like the Fuji X10 and RX100 also make the G15 look pretty pedestrian from an IQ/performance perspective. Sorry just had to vent.  

But another clear advantage of the P7700 is in video mode which offers full manual exposure control and a microphone jack, two highly sought after features for videographers not offered by the Canon G15.  But you'd never know any of these things with the absolutely minuscule coverage of the P7700 by DPR in relation to the Canon offerings.

Anyway, I'm glad at least DxOMark is paying attention to this wonderful new compact from Nikon.

All the best and happy shooting, Markus
