CANIKON KILLER.....look at this: http://www.sonyalpharumors.com/the-a9-is-the-dslr-killer-there-is-no-turning-back-now/

Size isn't everything, but that is just one aspect of how this beast will spell the end for CANIKON.

Sony service is coming along, Sony lenses for FF are top notch and they have most of the important lenses now with the addition of this latest lens. The big thing is, this beast features a stacked sensor, is a processing machine, combined with Class leading technology and great glass, yes, CANIKON KILLER.

Edward, the like feature is not a Facebook exclusive in case you didn't notice. This will have CANIKON quaking in their boots

pfffff, who needs 1000 fps slowmo??? Rank in order of most desirable for those who care about their phone cameras, dual cam/quadruple FL cams is more necessary. Ability to have different FL is what these phones lack since putting an optical zoom would mean slower lenses..guess I won't be upgrading my S7 to the S8...perhaps the LG G6 will be my upgrade.

On article A comfortable fit: Panasonic Lumix GX850 overview (119 comments in total)

If had pdaf like the rx100v, it would gain me as a user. I want something this small, but need to be able to capture my boys soccer which the c-af would not be a match I don't think. Also would have wanted a viewfinder. While the DOF won't be as shallow as my a6000, it would be plenty enough while flexible being an ILC. I'm in no rush.

In reply to:

superstar905: Is the AF phase detect, contrast, or hybrid?

Thanks Richard. This is truly attractive. I've been waiting for years for a fuji this capable at this price point. AF has always been the achilles heel for this company and this seems like it would fit the build. I like the implementation of C-AF too for more refinement depending on what you are shooting.

In reply to:

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.

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.

In reply to:

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 (2162 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.

On article Field Test: The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV in Mexico (133 comments in total)

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.
