Just want to express my gratitude in all the superb jobs in camera reviews. It's what sets this site apart from others.

If this camera gets reviewed, please include in the sample gallery a portrait at the tele end of the zoom. It would be nice to see the capability of the camera in isolating objects from the background.

As an owner of a Fuji X system camera, I would like a fast, constant-aperture, zoom lens in the lineup, 24-70mm f 2.8 to be exact. Or even f1.8 like the Sigma zoom (f18-35), that's even better.

On article Battle of the Wi-Fi Cards: Eye-Fi vs. Transcend (185 comments in total)

J D Tranquil: I am a non-professional who have both cards and I find the Transcend much more suitable for my use.

The Eye-fi card is compatible with a wider range of cameras. Therefore, I can use it on my main camera while the Transcend card cannot. The big problem with the Eye-fi card is that you have to load everything from the card to your device. That means, let's say you took 20 pictures from the week before and haven't download them to your device yet. And today you have just taken a picture that you want to load to your device; once the transfer begin you have to download the 20 pictures from the week before first.

This is my experience on both cards. Hope it's helpful in your buying decision. Each card has its own strengths and weaknesses. It's just which one better suits your needs.

And today you have just taken a picture that you want to load to your device; once the transfer begin you have to download the 20 pictures from the week before first.

Another problem with the Eye-fi card is that pictures can be downloaded once only. I travel with the iPhone and the iPad (without the SIM card). I use the iPhone to send pictures to Facebook while I enjoy other pictures on a bigger screen of the iPad. That means I have to choose if I want which pictures to be downloaded to which device. And that cannot be done easily because the pictures go to the device in sequential order. Once the pictures go to one device, they cannot be transfer to another device via direct mode.

In these respects, the Transcend card can be more useful. I can choose which pictures to be downloaded to all of my mobile devices. I don't travel with my laptop so I don't have a problem in that regard. The Transcend card also allow me to share the pictures with my friends who travel with me in that instant- the limitation the Eye-fi card cannot do.

Thank you, Jeff. I've been a fan of yours for years and I'm glad to see your reviews here. Your reviews influenced my purchasing decision on some very good digital cameras. I'm very happy to see this head-to-head format and hope it continues.

Interesting article. I just wish there's a view-all-pages button.

armanius: No face detection AF?

If there's no face detection, I'd rather get the RX100. Love the beautiful design though.

I would love to see a change in IQ rather than the added wi-fi capability. I just want the RX100 so badly.

Totally agree with Dmatter. 18 mp feels just right for me.
