Well done Sir!! A real gamechanger of an article. Great to see the user (or used) perspective as one of the deciding factors on DPR. Please keep these coming.

Lee Jay: Your travel usage couldn't be more different than mine.

First of all, hauling USB chargers is, for me, a much bigger hassle than hauling camera battery chargers. This is because they are slow, you need a lot of them for a lot of devices, and it's hard to charge while you are using the device.

Second, hauling a dSLR and full lens kit has never been a problem for me. I've done it since I was a little kid and don't see any reason to stop. I've only left it in the hotel room when on the way to the hotel pool. Walking 10-16 miles a day with a 10+ pound kit is no problem at all.

Finally, I need focal length range. A fixed 35mm-equivalent lens on travel would be so restrictive to me that I wouldn't bother bringing the camera. I travel with 180° horizontal fisheye through 640mm equivalent, and use most of that range very frequently.

@Lee Jay. Regarding your first point. Get a chipped smart charger with 6 outlets all individually monitored for optimum charging. Works perfect for everything from Ipad to smartphone to camera. Hey presto, max result with min effort. ;-) World wide plug support and car support. Does work for me.

snapa: Although both are very good cameras, they are just too big and bulky for my liking. I think I'll just stick to the much smaller/lighter MICL cameras with similar IQ and features.

+100 definitely. About both statements;-)

No EVF, NO Sale. For the target group no problem perhaps. BUT for the target group Fuji needs a pancake zoom kitlens like others have.

perry rhodan: I'm glad IQ is dropped from the list of things needed to win "best" of any class. I "tested" the 3 mentioned here extensively for IQ. Because these three lack it completely. And I'm dead serious. Clipping is killing IQ in both panasonic's. The TZ 90 has abyssmal lowlight IQ. Even a 5 year old camera that sold for 100 does better right now. Sorry If you like gadget's. The Clipping of highlights in the FZ 300 is unacceptable. The P900 is a one trick pony. Nothing wrong with that, but if you write "best" I assume you mean best in real world use and not best in the prospectus. Tried all extensively and gladly Let them go. The HX400 trounces them all in IQ. And that is a 3 year old cam doing 370 now. NEXT..!

Seen them all. We all see what we see. If one is happy with the results that's what counts.

Why are most of them shot on the M6?
There is a 28 mm EFM macro for that.

perry rhodan: Denial is the best way to act for canikon here. 😅 And I'm a'n OVF canon guy.
BTW. Canikon to big to fail? NOT.

Apparently we have to agree to disagree. 😎

Just pointing out that TIME is really running out for canikon. The enormous user base of the two is the ONLY thing they have going for them. I was a real canon OVF guy, until a year ago. Used canikon for over 40 years as a loyal user with loads of stuff hanging around.

orion1983: 12MP ---> 18MP ---> 20MP ...I assume the ISO800+ images will suffer significantly, which will be the dominating ISO settings in non-bright-sun with the mediocre tele f numbers. Was hoping for a switching back to 12MP :/ I think also the new sensor will bot be a major improvement but am openminded to be proven wrong.... :D

FOR ME 20mp is excellent. Have the sony hx50. Using it for years. IQ in good light is already very good. In so so light it is just good enough. And in low light it can be acceptable if used with care. These mini ultrazooms are what they are. So stop complaining about bad IQ in low light. And go read the Andrew Smallman blogs.

BTW the HX60 is just inferior to the 50 in LL. The HX90 IQ is inferior compared to the HX60 again. The HX400 is better than all mentioned here. And the deal is: it has MUCH better glass! As one could expect.

4K/photo 4K touchscreen and flipscreen. You did it panasonic!

Now hoping for Andrew Smallman to update his fabulous blog with the TZ90!!!

Classic leading IQ? And the canon 80D was lagging in IQ 1 year ago! And they both score about equal in the 3 IQ bars. And they are in the same class/category.?? Something is not right. ROFLMAO.

On article The Canon that can: Canon EOS 80D Review (730 comments in total)

Just compared DPR scoring of nikon 5600 where IQ is said to be classic leading. Dpr states that the 80D IQ is lagging the competition. That seems entirely untrue as seen in the DPR scoring.. Both are about equal in the scoring for IQ!!! So... UTTER NONSENSE. Sorry guys you miserabely failed to check your own "scoring comparometer". Trust gone. FaiL! And I read all the excuses before.

Yes Canon. Shame on you. Because Leica has the same full spread of modern up to date pro to enthousiast DSLR line like you. NOT. Apples and oranges or was it red dot versus red ring.

Great hands on! Thanks!
How does the body feel, compared to the XT10? The top parts in particular. Had the XT10 and compared to the X30 and XE2 some things bothered me, one was the feeling of the top deck and top dials.

Ok yawn! I was hoping for the HX450/500. With better EVF and another serious upgrade like weather proofing. Currently the HX400 sells for less than this new HX350 and is better in every way. Cheap sony rehash? Come on sony, get me an HX500 with 1k EVF, touchscreen 20mm - 1000mm and weather proofing, hotshoe, nfc. Still dreaming.

The menustructure is a step backwards?! At least. Rant on... "Tried one extensively. Must say that the 4 earlier m43 bodies from oly I had (epl1 epl2 em10 em5ii) were much better menu wise. And they were an absolute dog already. Olympus WHAT ARE YOU DRIN/THINKING? It's 2016 going 17. Equipment should empower me, not make me mad every other day. Sorry, but I so much want to love these beautifully crafted bodies. So came back 3 times." Rant off .. Not anymore.

photolando: Well, according to B&H it's only about $45 more than the Nissan i40. From the dimensions it is a bit beefier. I always feel like the i40 looks so "toyish" on my X-T1. This Metz isn't a lot bigger (1/4" wider) but looks a little more professional. Not that I really care what people think but doing corporate events I want them, the clients, to think I'm using professional equipment. The attendees don't care but the client might. Perception does play a factor. I'll pick one up and give it a shot. Pun intended.

Try the i60 on your X-T 1. It's a match made in haven.

Seriously interesting Tools! Fully air1 and HSS compatible.

perry rhodan: Nissin i40 anyone? It's a superb flash. Small and powerfull. 4xAA wireless and all work perfectly, on ALL platforms inclusing Fuji. For 179 a piece it is a no brainer. They even work great on multiplatform by using slave settings and if needed FEC.
It's good the Metz is here also as it is always nice to have choices.

The i40 does wireless TTL . See..
http://www.nissindigital.com/i40.html
Only the Fuji version is under construction. Due to the Fuji camera flash system itself. All my nissins i40and i60 work flawlessly with all systems. Have canon Fuji sony oly nissins. They work perfectly also in wireless TTL.
Even older system and dslr's work with the 2 position slave functions of the nissins. My i40 for canon works perfect in wireless (non TTL of course) with older sony and Panasonic compacts. Also the nissinS work flawlessly wireless with the olympus Tg4. Ergo... they have to pry it from my cold hands.....

Value i40 and i60 is phenomenal. And no... I do not work for them.
