Smacks of some kind of desperation.VRR

i use the M3 ( EOS) with the EVF- the image quality is great. I use mainly legacy lenses which are manual focus. Focus speed is unimportant to me. Looks like an interesting camera. Unfortunately as an old analogue Leica guy, I am put off with DSLR resembling cameras. VRR

I like the Reuters image better, purely subjective- seems to have greater clarity. I'd love the specs. VRR

I like what you had to say Matthew. As a Law Professor I deal with recitations in all classes. I try never to say "you're wrong". There is always something you can say that will be positive. When I was in Law School, I had one professor who lived to ridicule his students. He wasn't happy unless the class was laughing at the reciting student. For what purpose? The courtroom is never like that. Always be kind. VRR

Absolutely great idea. Exactly what was needed. VRR

This should have bees saved for the April Fools issue. I collect cameras and have myriad "old" digitals. They are all working- I wouldn't do this to any of them. There is in my mind something "obscene" about this useless stupid video. VRR

maxnimo: I'd sure like to know how good this lens is corner to corner, as well as wide open. If it can resolve a full 16 Mpixels I'd be impressed.

With the Canon 0.95 "dream lens" I understand the feeling for a lens' unique character. VRR

Having, and liking the 0.95 25mm for m43, I am sure that this one is just great. VRR

In reply to:

kadardr: It is not just the look, but more the feel, when you hold it, manipulate with the knobs and wheels, check out the VF and the menu, so try it. And then if the camera and the price fits you, you buy it. Actually, for instance, the Olympus XA was great, because the looks and feel (and size) was all exceptionally good. And it had no weather sealing. This classic look is more a fashion thing though, but it works in sales, so I do not mind. The message is: try before you buy!

I have 2- in storage- never had a problem.

Just got a highly discounted Lumix GX7 body- focus peaking is a great addition when using a manual focus "legacy" lens. When using some of those very fast primes from days of yore, help is needed for precise work. vroger

Long ago and far away...I wanted to use my Canon 0.95 (modified for my M6) on a digital camera- but was told by my colleagues in the Leica Users Group that it would never happen. You couldn't build a Leica M digital. Then Panasonic brought out the G1 and my life changed....seriously it changed.(Never could afford a digital M) I started using m43 almost exclusively. Lumix G1 through GX-7 and with great "legacy" lenses. Summicron, Elmar, Voigtlander. Lately, Canon 1.2 FD, Konica Hexanon 1.7 - and of course the 0.95 Canon. Spectacular results with one and all. I have used third party lenses (together with m43 lenses) since. I am really glad DP Review has started this forum. PS. Ebay- great place to get super good lenses for a fraction of the original prices.

TomHudsonVisual: Funny the a6000 didn't make this list. It outperforms most to the cameras here for less money.

Okay, if you have to have 4k video or a camera to take snorkeling, I understand, but some of the options here don't have those functions either.

Actually...the man is right- compact is fixed lens, or fixed lens zoom- m4/3 doesnt enter the picture if it's an ILC....Wait a minute...what does the "C" stand for....

keeponkeepingon: Y'all need to narrow down what you mean by "travel camera" because your selections are all over the place.

Starting with

"We've picked out our best picks for the photographer who wants to keep things simple by carrying a compact camera rather than one with interchangeable lenses."

If you are going with that as a definition then I would think your travel camera recommendations would cover a wide range of focal lengths (as you can't change the lens) and the recommendations should be small and easy to travel with "a compact camera".

But on your list you have two recommendations with a fixed, very ackward focal length, and a large super zoom that is as big as a DSLR.

FOCUS DPREVIEW! This is not the large sensor compact or the super zoom review. You've left off popular options that fit your definition (Sony HXV90, Nikon S99000) to push your hipster darlings.

When I leave home for a 4 month stretch I always carry backup- I have never been able to travel with just 1 camera. The insecurities of age. VRR

Dash29: The term 'compact camera' doesn't relate to the product accurately. Regardless that it has been an established marketing term in the camera industry for a couple of decades now, its still wrong and is backed up by posts within this thread. It's not a convenient label for fixed-lens cameras, no matter what the opinion of those who think it is.

Since the camera world has grown, quality and brains has been on the decline with people that use the equipment. Its now a gimmick society.

...and cameras are nothing more than computers on camera straps. How does one teach photography these days?

davids8560: I just don't know what to do. Fuji. Sony. Lumix. Coopix. All that's clear is that without the right camera, that Pulitzer just seems farther away than ever. And sure can't dodge the fact my accounts render all these reviews irrelevant. Money's been kinda slow. Yeah, sure - daydreamin' is free. So I shut her down and went to the park. Deserted. Took a picture of a crushed Mountain Dew can on a bed of dry leaves with my iPhone. God, it was windy! Wonder if Sharice is ever coming back. So much wasted time! Not enough Friends. Not enough Likes. Nothing when I Google my own name. (Sigh.)

Sounds about right- who's speaking...you or me?

These days I travel with the Lumix LX100 (Leica 109 iteration), the Lumix FZ200 (with the f2.8 constant aperture) and a couple of Lumix G cameras ( GX1 and G3). This with a 0.95 Mitakon 50 and a couple of zooms allows me 4 months of travel in which I can, hopefully, get what I want. For general everyday use, I have the Typ 109 (LX100) which is a marvelous piece of equipment. I can also sneak a Canon M in my luggage for when I need a larger sensor. The M is awful to use, but the IQ is excellent. VRR
