Canon1966: I shoot Canon, but I would consider going for this one if it were full frame. The look and design of this camera also really caught my attention.

@VisualFX, you're funny.

(unknown member): "The new true-tone flash comes with 4 LEDs for more power output and better color balance"
WOW. I guess I'm selling all my profoto equipment tomorrow. Who needs all those 5ft octabanks if such a miracle flash exists!

Absolutely hilarious, a knee-slapper - give yourself a big pat on the back! LOL But relativity is so much more intelligent than sarcasm.

Always love the recipients of a British-based school system. ;)

PLShutterbug: I work for a rugged computer manufacturer. MIL STD-810G means basically nothing since manufacturers have wide latitude in implementing the standard.

My son has the S6 Active. He dropped it from a short height and there was a small ding in the lower left corner of the case, it stopped charging and AT&T said the ding voided the warranty.

Unless manufacturers are willing to back up their claims with real warranties that reflect the "active" intent and their advertising, these phones must still be treated as if they are fragile.

Right, re: wanting them to back up what they advertise - of course... All I was wondering was if buying a STANDARD S6 then adding the Otterbox Defender would have been a better choice for your son than buying the S6 Active? Less damage?

Would a standard S6 with the Otterbox Defender surrounding it have been better for your son? What provides better cushioning? Or did the S6 Active come with shatterproof glass, too, so no comparison?

Thank you for this review, Lars. I hope more manufacturers add a physical 2-stage (long press for video) camera button to their touchscreen focus/shutter 'buttons' as more and more people only use their mobile phones for image capture.

alcaher: A refurbished d7200 at the end of this year could be consider very cheap, specially if we take into consideration that its one of Readers top choices.

Sorry. I meant brand-new by next Christmas.

Richard Franiec: The absence of the lenses in the line up of the best product is intriguing. But it is the way we voted, isn't it?

I'm sure they'll be coming fast and furiously. :)

Nope... No more 1/2.3, 1/1.7 and 2/3 inch sensors... 1 inch super-zoom and $500 by Christmas. You can do it, corporate kids. Come on.

Hmmm... Nothing particularly special jumped out while viewing. I might be spoiled by the recent and varied Sony offerings. *shrug* (And I don't even work for Sony, honest.)

They really need to let go of those 1/2.3 inch sensors. Just trash them and use 1/1.7 inch as a minimum, given that it's 2015 now. Maybe we need a Geneva Convention? ;)

WetCoast: 1" sensor, please. No more 2/3", 1/1.7" or 1/2.3"... :)

Would you all want a Panasonic FZ1000 (16x zoom, 1" sensor, F2.8-4.0) for $900 or an Olympus Stylus 1 (10x zoom, 1/1.7" sensor, F2.8) for $700? I think the 1" sensor is worth $200 more and that that size will soon become the minimum norm for enthusiast compacts - as in the Sony RX10 and RX100's, and the Canon G7 X now, too... This was all I was getting to. I certainly appreciate my Olympus XZ-2 1/1.7", but 1" next and never look back. :)

nowo1978: This is a joke, right? The honorable mention goes to the Sony camera you haven't even finished testing and not the Pentax K-3?

According to them, the newer Sony A77 II has a better JPEG engine, better auto-focus, faster continuous shooting with tracking focus, and better video... (Much better than 2011's A77, too.) *shrug*
