In reply to:

G G: Apparently, the Olympus Stylus 1s is discontinued.

Possibly, though B&H still has them in stock - they're usually very good at listing when somethings been discontinued. Amazon still carries it as well, though it may be near EOL. I doubt it will be in our next update.

erayer: As far as I know Pentax K-S2 doesn't use image stabilization for video.

good catch!

In reply to:

bobn2: "Uses the same 24MP sensor as its predecessor'. No, it doesn't. D3200 had Nikon 24MP sensor, D3300 has 2nd gen Sony 24MP sensor - they perform very differently and are a different size (old Nikon slightly sub-size for DX).

I can't find those exact words- where are they? On the D3300 page in the roundup I see:
"Like its predecessor, it uses a 24MP CMOS sensor", which is true, since it doesn't say *the same* sensor.

fzrTom: Why no A68 ?

It hasn't been available in the US so we haven't gotten our hands on it. I've reached out to Sony to see if we can get one.

MikeDPR: It's unfortunate that Samsung NX500 is not in the list. It offers the highest DXO sensor rating for cropped sensors and 4K video. Inexpensive and very light prime lenses complete the system very well in my opinion. Yes, I would still buy one even if their future is uncertain.

The NX500 is very much discontinued.

Mister Joseph: What's the lens used on the K-1? Outside of the image center seems to be out of focus or just soft?

FA 77mm F1.8 Limited

In reply to:

Marty4650: I think there is some confusion as to what a "long zoom camera" is. If the 8.3X and 10X zooms belong in this group, then maybe the 25X zooms need to be in another group.

I realize 8.3X was once considered "long zoom" but that was back in 2004. Today, long zoom means "30X, 40X, 50X and more."

DPR has assembled a group of 5 SLR styled "bridge cameras" and 1 compact travel zoom camera of various zoom ratios, and called them "long zoom camera." The only things they really have in common is they have sensors 1.0 inch or larger, and they all "cost a lot."

You forgot the word "enthusiast", which is code for 1" sensor. We will be doing one for conventional long zoom cameras soon.

Dougbm_2: What about the Nikons? DL 18-50 and DL 24-85?

Waayyyy too early those those cameras to be included.

Go grab a coffee or three.

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!

In reply to:

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.
