If you've decided on Coolpix A instead of X100s, please share your thinking.

of course, although it was only a reference to the IQ per pixel level compared to the D800E. but ultimately we are making an IQ comparison against the Coolpix A for landscape which IMO wouldn't even be possibly at the same level as the DP2M.

If Nikon had done this right they would have put the D5200 sensor in the Coolpix A and had a 1.3x crop factor yielding the equivalent of a 15Mp 56mm lens. Until Nikon puts there best sensors in their mirrorless cameras, they can't be taken seriously.

Well, given the shadow banding issues being shown from the D5200 in numerous threads on here, I'm not so sure the D5200 sensor > D5100 sensor. The D5100/D7000 sensor is one of the best available on the market even today. When the X100 came out, Fuji sourced a Sony 12MP sensor with a 12-bit ADC while the D7000 (announced 4 days BEFORE the X100) made use of a newer Sony 16MP sensor with a 14-bit ADC and some small in-house tweaks from Nikon.  Pentax did the same thing. Fuji had access to the same base sensor from Sony, but opted to save money and use the cheaper sensor that had been around a while already. Does that mean the X100 should not have been take seriously??

I'm not following your logic.
