It's a personal list. Get over it.

Mac McCreery: A bit later than this- but i had the Fuji F11- a wonderful compact.

I then added the lovely monster that was the Fuji s9500. Wow!

Pentax. The camera for the photographer who knows what they are doing.

Mac McCreery: A general point. There are, as on any thread, some upset folk here. Please don't attack the review team, and ,in turn, perhaps the review team could reply in a more becoming manner.

Hi Barry
I was making a general point.
There is needless hostility toward the reviewers. At the same time I do find the reviewers' replies at times petulant.
By the way, I use centre AF!

RonHendriks: However not telated in any way to this review. Ricoh doesn't use Pentax camera's for their own work. At the Ricoh Open, grass tennistournament for ATP and WTA, they hired a photographer working with Nikon D4s this year. Why spend money on someone working with Pentax when you don't believe in your own product. A story that is going on for years.

Er...because Pentax cameras are not designed for sports use?

Mac McCreery: Great camera. The AF may be sub par, but who needs blazing fast AF for its intended use?
As for the availability of lenses, I seem to recall that Sony were initially in the same, if not a worse, position. I'm sure that Ricoh will build upon the existing line.
Pound for pound, it has to be right up there. Well done!

I did state that the AF is subpar. But this camera is not designed for action shooting. Having said that, how the hell did they cope pre AF! It's an old chestnut I know, but let the photographer show some skill as well.

Reviews of ANY camera are unfortunately designed to test usability straight out of the box.

I give far more stock to user reviews conducted after they have spent some months with a camera.

Mac McCreery: A beautiful camera. From the days when decisions were straightforward.

Exactly.
And those skills became second nature. I used to use film cameras and reached a point where I could pretty much nail the exposure without metering.
Now that I use digital, that skill has gone.

Great looking camera. Great images. I guess for those in the market for a top value tool who are not looking to produce top class video, or you feel the need to own every lens in a brand's range, you can't go far wrong.

Mac McCreery: Brilliant. Sick of going to concerts surrounded by idiots holding their phones in the air filming. I must say that I have had a few polite words.

A great day for the photographer and not the goon with the smartphone!

Mac McCreery: I love these little cameras. I might be tempted one day when the battery life is improved.

Lol. I do like these little cameras. And thank you for the replies. I do find some of the replies funny! FYI, I do lug around a DSLR with a battery life of touching a 1000 shots per charge. But I may well invest in one of these in the future when the DSLR becomes too cumbersome.

I'm just tight and don't see why I should have to fork out for extra batteries! Especially not the genuine ones..........
