graybalanced: Regarding the aperture markings, the discrepancy when zooming in should not bother experienced LX7 users because it always happens on that camera too. I have learned that if I'm in aperture priority and zoomed in, the actual aperture can be seen at the bottom of the screen. I hope that is still the case on the LX10.

The biggest loser here? Nikon. I had my eye on the DL series; on paper it looks brilliant. Then Canon came out with the GX7 II which you can actually buy, and now the LX10 is probably going to hit the streets well before the tragically delayed DL.

I agree. I don't see any issue with the dial whatsoever. You set your desired Aperture and the screen will show you the true aperture depending on your focal length. The value is when shooting at 24 or 28mm, you can set the Aperture easily to any value you want depending on what you are trying to accomplish with the photo.

superstar905: Looks like Oly has figured out how to stabilize 4k video with the EMII.

so why omit it in this camera??

Vegetable Police: I would definitely rather have this than my Canon G7X, but I wouldn't upgrade. Bigger sensor or go home ;)

I'm in the same boat. I'm in no rush anyways.

4k crop, no stabilization in 4k, no ND filter, these are reasons why I likely won't get this. I like a lot about the camera, but I'm in no rush to go purchase it.

Aroart: Great comparison... Off topic but Sony related.. The a6300 just got a firmware update that is suppose to solve over heating in 4k.. I don't think its a rummer, wonder why DP review hasn't posted it.. Can anyone validate...

They don't usually post rummers.

jesus_freak: I'm still blown away by how much the RX100 IV costs. There are a lot of other options available for $950.

Well, I looked at that, but the AF and processing speed of the M4 alone makes it worth it, along with improved EVF. I want to see what the M5 brings, LX200, and then will compare with the DL24-85. Come black friday, I will be making a purchase, till then, I'll enjoy my a6000 with 16-70

I agree. If it was weather sealed though, that would potentially justify the costs as the dust on sensor issue goes away.

On article Upwardly mobile: Sony a6300 Review (2163 comments in total)

Richard, I am impressed that you come here and respond to criticism levelled at the review. That is big of you, and speaks to your confidence in what you have delivered. I wonder if the camera should have gotten a silver or a Gold based on factors others have mentioned specifically lack of direct access to functions without having to menu dive, lens ecosystem, etc. That said, this camera is clearly an upgrade, and clearly the best in its class and for those complaining about the price (I'm not thrilled about it either), just look at whats being charged for the Olympus Pen F and X-Pro 2 both of which are inferior to the a6300.

purchasing any of these cameras without them being weather sealed is a huge risk, and considering the financial committment to buy these, its not one I would make without it being weather sealed.

In reply to:

superstar905: I think this is a really fair review. Well done DPreview. I'm not a fan of primes as I really dislike swapping lenses so this camera is definitely not for me, but I loved my EP5 and looking forward to what the EP7 might bring. For now, I'm content with my a6000 and 16-70.

This from the review cons:
"Due to its rangefinder-style design, it can be awkward to use with anything other than small primes". Sure, you can use the 12-35, but it would be unbalanced just as it was on the EP5. I think another low rating was value in this review which I think speaks to price point vs what are you really gaining in better image quality from what already exists in the m4/3 line. 12-35 is too limiting a range for me and I like the DOF control on the larger format APS-C, however if Oly/Pany were to come out with a 12-50 or 12-60 f2.8-f4, I think i may be convinced to come back to m43 (assuming improvements in AF-C are made concurrently). Anyways, just my opinion.

F2.8 - 4 would have been my preferred apertures on this range. Right direction though with the range chosen.

On article Hands-on with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 (77 comments in total)

Very nice camera. I suppose the new Enthusiast price is now close to $1800 USD. For a non pro camera, certainly this is a niche camera that will have sales, but certainly limited for what it is. Fuji in my opinion is simply catching up with the competition but this is a nice looking camera.

Even if slightly larger than the GX8, you have a much larger sensor that will outresolve it.

For me, I'd call myself a hobbyist, this is too much money and I absolutely need an onboard flash that can bounce. I can't tell you how many times that has saved me when I've only had my zoom lens.

That is too bad though, I think Fuji is heading in the right direction here, and if the hybrid viewfinder and other features work their way to a lower end model, combined with a fast AF system, I think Fuji could build some winners. My biggest issue with Fuji Cameras was poor video.

On article Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV Review (1571 comments in total)

I can genuinely say that I am in the target market for this camera, but Sony has priced me out. At $700 I would suck it up, but where it is, as good as it is, is not for me.

Unless the target is not me, but rather Pro's who simply want a small backup. While they may too be customers, I don't think they are the target.

again, look at what is in focus....the front of the pillow. Had the lens been stopped down, more would be in focus. Its shallow DOF.

I think you need to consider what is and isn't in focus. The shallow DOF is evident here, just look at the green leaves on the plants. This is impressive.
