  • For me, the menu must be very user friendly. I too have some dislike about the Olympus menu but probably not as bad as Sony's. Hope they can improve on it.

  • Ultimately, its the photographer who make the picture. A better camera may make it easier. That's all. An experience photographer would know how to capture the right moment and compose well. I...

  • If having a smaller size is not that critical, I would definitely prefer my LX100 for its better Classic User Interface. All the main dials (with their settings) which can be seen at a glance on...

  • I own the LX100. The main reason why I bought it was it gave me the classic analogue way of using a camera much like using a Leica range-finder camera. (By the way, one can buy the same camera...

  • For me, the 16Mp sensor is more than sufficient on a Micro 4/3 camera especially now that they have done away with the AA filter. Lets hope all the new improvement will make it more user friendly. ...

  • What a discouragement to travellers in Europe nowadays. Europe really has decline so much in terms of safety over the years. Besides pickpockets and robbery, there are also terrorists threats...

  • Too expensive and heavy for a "compact" camera.

  • Since you are already using a full frame DSLR, any compact camera is a compromise in terms of image quality.  Due to the bulk, there are a lot of situation where a DSLR would be inconvenient.  The ...

    A bigger sensor is usually better than a smaller one. If I needed a bigger sensor, I would most probably shoot with a full frame DSLR like a Canon 5D Mk3. However, for street and travel...

    I think I better stay with my Ricoh GR. It is smaller and easier to carry around. The faster f/1.7 lens is the only possible advantage this camera will give me but I can live with a f/2.8 lens...

  • Yes, you are right. Just a bit to the level of the 5D3. That's more than good enough.

  • This camera won't make you a better photographer but if you are an experience one, it will give you a better change to get those "impossible" shots easier.

    Good that Canon did not increase the...

  • Overall, a nice compact design but the lack of a built-in flash make it a less convenient camera to use on the go. One can easily misplace the small external flash or lose it. The second issue is...

    I still prefer the simplicity and compactness of the Ricoh design.

    If they have kept the f/2.0 aperture, it would have given this camera more advantage.
