johnparas11zenfoliodotcom: too expensive. I might as well buy a Nikon D90 or a D5100.

Redfox, you missed the point. Not to compare to a D90 but compare it to the offerings of the competition, they are not competing with themselves but for sure competing for the same market as Sony, Panny and Oly.

"Turn out the lights, the party's over"...too late to the party occupied by Oly, Panny, Sony etc.
Nikon is a contradiction and must have completely different gruops working on different things that do not communicate, Their pro level cams are unbeatable and their consumer cameras are the worst P.O.S. (my wifes L-22) available. This new offering falls in the later category.
If you are in a war you don't bring a knife to a gunfight, this is definately a knife.
With some of the truly innovative small cameras available from other manufactures why a "me too" offering supposedly aimed at enthusiasts, B.S., they are trying to lie back on their laurels and sell the name. They will sell a lot to an unknowledgable public soley because of the Nikon label but eventually will turn into a "black eye" when compared to other offerings.
I bought my first Nikon "S" in 1952 and many since but not this P.O.S. wannabee.

raywes: Nothing has come along in a while to compete with the Sony HX100v, but this changes everything. Along with the Panasonic FZ150, these two cameras will bed the new leaders I predict. And I thought I had my mind made up about purchasing the FZ150 already.

No "hot shoe", no raw, 2.7 monitor....gimmee a break Canon.
The HS20EXR and now the FZ150 has all of these features, I simply don't understand manufactures thinking? Another Ho Hum mediocre offering from the HASBEEN leader.
