Attractive image but the plane needs some prop blur.

A sharp & well detailed photo. Fills the frame well.

Beautiful plane and background. Having prop blur would have made a more natural looking image.

I'd sure like to get my hands on the prototypes.

tkbslc: There sure seem to be some radial leaps of logic made below to equate Nikon screwing up a product line to the death of the DSLR and all compact cameras.

Maybe Nikon and Canon will have to merge. Merge or die.

My feelings exactly. Man, I really wanted this camera.

Aroart: That is awesome looking. Looks like something a Stormtrooper would shoot with...

I think it looks pretty cool also. The color, finish, and controls reminds me of something the Apollo moon astronauts used.

Same camera as the S7 ?
That's ok, I'll wait for the S9.

What, can't Sony build lenses?

Pretty cool looking camera. Would like to have one just to display.

BigBen08: Then fix the battery and bring back the Note 7.

I also came close to buying the Note 7. The Note 5 is still available but it's a bit expensive.
I ended up buying the LG Stylo 2 Plus. Has a stylus for note taking, 5.7 inch screen, 2900mAh replaceable battery, micro SD card up to 200GB, finger print reader, and NFC. Sells for $240.

Drawbacks (well, for some)...a 1280x720 display - pixel density 258 ppi.
Not the brightest screen, and the laser AF feature has been removed. Also the gpu isn't cutting edge. But game playing has decent frame rates. Gets above average reviews on the net.

In reply to:

Bruno E: "The Leica M10 will begin shipping this week" that's nice, finally a product that is announced and shipped, not announced it will come, half a year latter announced, that it will really come and then be shipped 3 months later.

Yup, well said.

No VF, I'll pass.

In reply to:

Peiasdf: G7X II have better grip, larger battery, better color and longer & faster lens. If you don't need an EVF and all mark V's speed, G7X II is a good alternative.

The G7XII is a fantastic camera and was high on my short list for cameras. But I'm a hard core VF user, so I'll pass.

I'm waiting for the RX100 VI.
