In reply to:

Riz7861: The buying guide section is getting a little confusing and the latest round how don't appear to be in the buying guide section.

We're updating that now. Once all the roundups have been updated it'll all make sense. Thanks for your patience!

texasfz8: I always thought a "long" zoom was greater than 200mm. Glad DPR corrected me. I guess small sensor bridge cameras aren't for enthusiasts. For the kind of money the Sony costs it seems you could go M43 with more reach.

FWIW, we will have a consumer-level long zoom roundup soon.

camcom12: Nice round-up.
Would have liked to see Canon's G3 X included, but hope to see it in an upcoming enthusiast's Super-Zoom round-up with the new Sony, Nikon & Panasonic SZs. (fwiw: the 'Specifications Compared' link is incorrect on a few pages.)

The G3 X is in another roundup, which should be posted in a few days. And thanks for the tip re: spec comparison links.

Mat268: Maybe it is a stupid question, but why isn't the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III in the roundup? Is it too new? It seems on paper to be the travel camera I was waiting for for a long time.

Too new, wrong category. We'll be adding it once we've spent more time with it.

NWT: Very strange, we are only 5 months into 2016, and a roundup of the year is here, and most of them are recycling material. What is the point!

Argh, you're right about Europe. Not sure why the US has to wait a month.

In reply to:

Alhazen: With all the camera comparison tools on the site, why not add an equivalent aperture comparison tool? I mean, the equivalent aperture charts that show up in reviews are nice and all, but it would be much much handier to be able to choose which cameras show up in the chart, rather than needing to look at one of 9 lines in this chart and try to compare to one of another half dozen lines in another chart that doesn't have the same axis scaling.

It's something we want to do - just very complex to implement.

photofisher: Fuji just discontinued its x30 and xq2 today.

Link to official info? B&H isn't showing it and neither is Amazon* (and I checked with the retail folks to confirm).

*DPR is an Amazon.com company

In reply to:

huyzer: Have they provided the cost of all these parts, or has anyone calculated that? If not, what is a ballpark figure?

According to Facebook (via The Verge), about $30k.

AbrasiveReducer: In the video of the Palace of Fine Arts, they spelled San Francisco, "San Fracisco."

Which is especially ironic given FB's proximity to the city!

In reply to:

Pritzl: <pedantic mode>On page 1, it's either top + increased or minimum + decreased for shutter speed. As written it appears at first blush that the "top" speed worsened by "decreasing" to 1/2000s.</pedantic mode>

Pedants are always appreciated here!

In reply to:

Weebill: In the review specifications there are two listings that are new to me.
Optics:
Normal focus range
50 cm (19.69″) I.e. 19.7" to infinity?

Macro focus range
5 cm (1.97″)

Are these what used to be called Closest Focusing Distance and Macro Focusing Distance?
Thank you for a clarification

One is in regular AF mode and the closer one is when you switch to Macro AF mode.

Cipher: The specs say a fully articulated LCD. It should be tilting...

Fixed, thanks.

Cheng Bao: Why two name?
I didn't realize NA has number preference of 85 over 80

We think they do this to differentiate the NTSC and PAL models. Maybe for watching out for gray market sales, too.

MrTaikitso: Do you have to have a beard to work at DPreview? ;)

Market calls for a hispstermatic custom themed camera for the cereal cafe crowd. Pentax? Your move guys!

Barman, mine's a manly silver GX8, shaven but not 5 axis stirred.

I'll show myself out...

You can be bald or have a beard, but not both.

In reply to:

Jostian: maybe its just me (probably) but when I look at the crops (of the bikers face) on the 'Autofocus & Performance page of the review they are just so hazy and mushy, with no detail at all... is this what we are to expect for 1 inch zoom camera's? DPR seem happy but I ain't...

As it says on that page:

"In order to get the fast shutter speed needed the freeze a moving subject we did have to increase the ISO, so the images below are a bit noisy"

At 200mm equiv. the maximum aperture is F5.9. To get 1/800 sec (we would've preferred 1/1000 sec) the ISO had to go to 500, hence the noise.

In reply to:

shademaster: Hey, DPR.

Can you guys set up a widget for plotting effective aperture vs. effective focal length with user-selectable popular non-interchangeable zoom cameras (and maybe some popular zoom lenses on ILCs). The one here is pretty busy and hard to see which camera is which.

Thx.

Oh we definitely want have such a tool... it's just really difficult to implement!

Searching: Gold 82%........really.

From our [Camera scores and ratings explained page](http://www.dpreview.com/articles/4416254604/camera-scores-ratings-explained):

"There is no direct link between the overall score and the awards: they are not given automatically to cameras reaching a certain threshold. Crucially a camera can get an award even if a camera with a higher overall score didn't."
