NicoPPC: Fuji, you used to be funky, but this is boring!

What about a 1' or APS-C X-Trans sensor rugged camera ? as well mit limited zoom or fixed lens! Maybe a X100R "rugged"

See you!

This camera is well suited to its market niche and price point. None the less your other suggestions are good.

Leonp: I always like these throwback thursday articles.

I like Fujifilm, but that was a good burn!

Great idea! I do a lot of ‘travel’ photography, in that I walk around a lot! When I photograph and it can get tiring. I’d like it occasionally, when I’m in the middle of a field or on top of a hill or mountain to have a relatively comfortable surface to sit down and rest a bit as I take a stabilized photo or three! Without having to also schlepp around a foldable chair...nice! :-)

RegisS: This is terrible. There's tape covering the selphie cam on every laptop, tablet, or smartphone I own. How can I block the damn thing on my next phone?

Don’t be so paranoid?

The image and video quality of this phone seem better than the frankly disappointing performance of my 8 Plus in those departments.

Photato: Bless will be the day when Smartphones feature Multi-apect ratio sensors. It makes no sense to shoot all pictures in 4:3 to show them in a 16:9 world, especially with video !

Indeed!

windmillgolfer: Seems a little arbitrary to award Silver simply because the Olympus was out sooner. The lower price and top plate LCD of the G9 are surely compensating qualities.
No axe to bring, yes, a multiple Panasonic owner but the G80 is all I need.

Agreed, I’m not a Panasonic user or fanboy. But DPRs Silver rating as opposed to the OLYs Gold for a generally equal to better performing camera is unfair...and just because it came out a year later is silly. How long is it going to be before Oly puts out a successor to its flagship? Quite a long time I’d imagine.

Kikl: If "flutter" is such a bad thing, then how can the reviewer recommend a camera - nikon D500 - that has complete black outs, where you don't see anything, when shooting action. Not seeing anything is obviously a lot worse than seeing something slightly out of focus, when you are trying to follow an action!

It seems to me that this review is slightly biased.

I’ve used a D500 for sports photography. While (for me anyway) the focus hitrate wasn’t as high as DPR said it would be, the viewfinder blackout time at 10fps wasn’t that distracting, allowing me to continue following the action without much of an issue.

Still an very well specified camera for video. But I've just had a look at the price...$2500, I was expecting it to be less than that.

An impressive exotic lens with a price-tag to match!

$2500...still quite expensive then. I was expecting about $500 less.

RIP GoPro...odd but I'm going to miss seeing their action-cams featured in all those NatGeo, Discovery, X-sports and other similar kinds of TV channels. They've been a staple in those for many years. But it seems now...probably for not much longer.

Kudos to Panasonic, they've taken the 4/3 format sensor that has seemed to always play second fiddle image quality wise to APS-C and FF for stills photography. And made it the format to go for in the consumer/semi-pro video production market. This camera is excellently specified and capable for the price. And can see being a huge hit with the YouTube vloging/channel community, like its predecessors. Amongst other video-centric markets...quite impressive IMO.

John Sansom: Personally I would be happy to pay a subscription fee to view DPreview. We know classic banner ads on websites are in decline and DPR can only exist if it is a profit making business and that money has to come from somewhere. DPR must be the de facto news site for so many photographers and it must be able to continue with its editorial independence.

anticipation of : I second that!

Subscription fees? Absolutely not! Very few would be willing to do that I’d imagine. Look at the uproar within this very site’s comment section when Adobe announced they were not developing the standalone version of Lightroom anymore and concentrating development on the subscription version only...

I love this store’s YouTube channel. The best camera review channel around IMO. Although it seems their review output seems to have dropped of late. With more emphasis it seems going to their live broadcasts which I don’t watch much.

GabrielZ: Nearly 10 grand for a standard 50mm F2 lens and not much less for the non special edition versions is insane! What’s Leica’s profit margin on these? 1000 percent! Just crazy! But it’s Leica, I suppose if I had that kind of disposable income. Being the photo enthusiast that I am, I might purchase them myself...they are very pretty, especially in silver LOL!

HowaboutRAW are you listening? $8000 for the 'normal' version is too much too. As are the prices of all Leica M lenses, which is the point I was trying to make here. And why are you bringing up the Noctilux? I didn't even mention that, mandm did...pay attention!

HowaboutRAW I was referring to Leica's M series lenses in general, not just the special editions...exaggerating obviously, but to make a point.
