In reply to:

Nikonandmore: The LX100 is by far the best camera of its kind. But the current sensor in it is not game anymore these days, just makes no sense. They should have a sensor in the league of the old Samsung NX and then, rule the enthusiast compact camera segment. An old generation 12MP sensor in a compact camera is laughable. Manufactures need a wake-up call that the small cameras market is dying against cell phones and they need to give EXTRA VALUE and a justification for people to go buy an extra gear just to take photos. 12MP sensors and higher are now found on just about ALL phones in the world and people don't go buy ANOTHER 12MP camera just because it has a larger M43 sensor inside and a 2x or 3x zoom. If the LX200 is to be successful, need to be with a major update: sensor+lens+for factor. But.. this is fantasy..if it gets 16/20MP + new lens will be a miracle & once again the point&shoot market will continue its slide. A few more years all these small cameras will be like camcorders.. all gone!

I bought it in Europe

Abdallah II: the best i have seen yet in small cameras are the LX100s, 12mp M43 has lower noise despite its age, gives you close to 24mm in 4k shooting, has a viewfinder, no heat issue in 4k, long battery life, more control/function buttons and solid build...wish it was smaller

FYI: This camera has the same sensor as the LX7 and a 19mm lens

Mike FL: Will Panasonic make a TRUE LX7/5/... successor?

LX line had ability to use UWA and Tele add-on via tube mounted on the body, also LX7 is true 24mm - muti ration aspect sensor.

LX100 is muti ration aspect sensor too + Tele add-on with tube mounted on the body, but no UWA possible.

This LX10 has none of above. In other words, the TRUE LX line is dead so far.

If I do not have RX100.M3, I will buy Nikon DL18-50, but Nikon is kind of forgetting the DLs, but busy with laying off people.

Would buy it if it was more like the LX100 size-wise and usablity wise. Of course IQ is much better than the LX100. Why must one always chose between IQ and ergonomics?

telefunk: Was hoping for an advanced camera in the LX5, Lx7, LX100 vein. This one seems more like a glorified P&S...
They should have called it TZ85

Huh? No multi-aspect. No mf af switch. No flash shoe, no grip, no filter thread or option for other focals... etc
Are you knowledgeable?

Not as knowleable as you think.
P&S cameras can give excellent results in good light, as good as, or better than system cameras with kitzooms.
I suggest the following cameras for your mom: Canon Ixus 255, Lumix TZ7/8/10/25, Casio ZR700/800/850/3500.
I use these for1m prints in galleries.
Oh yes low light. Be careful with an APS-C Sony , Canon or Fuji!
Hope your mom will have soon have her perfect camera!

In reply to:

Joe Belmont: I have had the a6000 for about a week -- bought it with kit lens for less than $500. An amazing, even astonishing camera. (I have owned Nikon and Canon and still love my Olympus OMD.) I think the a6300 is Sony's way of getting a more appropriate price for its a6000 technology. It is just the most amazing camera. I bought it for the moving subject tracking and low light performance. Bigger is better in viewfinders and maybe someone needs 4K video. So the a6300 at $1,000 is still a good deal. But the a6000 is - I've already said it - amazing and a true steal.

Have you tried it in low light? No focussing and pretty bad noise/smearing. Have you seriously tried shooting with it at night, or are you just happy about some purchase?

telefunk: Hope it will focus in low light, at last. Otherwise what's the point of including AF?

Automatic Focus is useful if it will focus

In reply to:

marc petzold: Way bad Panasonic. In fact, the 2016 TZ100 EVF is 1.16 MP equivalent, and 0.2", whileas my 2008 Lumix G1 EVF was already 1.44 MP equal, based on the same time-based technique, and also bigger viewfinder area.

Why do a 2016 Lumix with 1" sensor does have such a bad, crappy EVF?

That's not progress, even more, when one would consider also the even better EVF into the FZ-1000, and with longer Zoom reach, but also more bulk, from 2014.

"I'm old fashioned, don't like to compose pictures via LCD "LiveView", taking pictures at arm-length isn't my taste. :-) "

I'm even more old-fashioned and like composing the Rolleiflex way: looking down on a screen on my tummy.

Looks very promising. Much better layout than the Sony A6000: bigger screen, dedicated exp. compensation dial, integrated flash... More of a photographers camera. Now if only it would focus! The A6000 was hopeless at focussing, not sure the M3 will do better.
And where is the Canon compact 16-50 kit lens?

alexeckersley: I've previously owned the RX100 and upgraded to the G7X when I was recently in Singapore as the RX100 had died on me. In the flickr link below are some photos from dusk to almost dark in Fort Canning Park and more recently at Arakoon in NSW Australia. Untouched full size... mostly on auto range of zoom as I familiarise myself with the cameras strengths. I find them in general more natural with the interpretation of colour and light compared to the Sony and am very happy with the detail.

Only the lack of wide angle (24mm)

My wife hates the colours of her G7X. She wants her RX100 back!

In reply to:

lacikuss: I just noted from a comparison between the RX100III and the G7x that the G7X appears to be wider @24mmm than the RX100III by a good 5%.

See the Temple pictures and count the number of lamps in the frame in this site:

http://www.mobile01.com/topicdetail.php?f=538&t=4088397

I would like DPReview to compare both cameras to se if 24mm, 70mm and 100mm are actually accurate or just marketing bs

Thanks to @bernardly for this link.

Yes please DPR. For me the wider, the better. And I also noticed the Sony 1650 kitlens goes even wider...
@lacikuss: the G7X goes wider than the the RX1003, but IQ is worse

Link | Posted on Oct 14, 2014 at 16:36 UTC

Great pictures! This is definitely better than my LX5. Would I pay 800 euro for this camera? No.

A GM1 has better quality with the kitlens.
