GuitarCamera Man: Just imagine what this can do to your retina!
Any eye doctors out there?

Indeed. I don't think being the lowest rated POTUS in modern history is something to be proud of.

Intermittentoverexposure: So it's basically impossible for a Canon body to get less than a silver award on DP. They basically cover the fact that this camera is inferior to every other MILC system camera, then give it a silver. LOL.

DPR actually has a reputation for being harder on Canon than just about any other manufacturer. The reviews for the RX100 series, for example, blatantly omit the fact that the color accuracy is poor and that the IS is complete garbage. The problems exist on every model, but you will find nary a mention of them in DPR reviews. Regarding this camera, simply because the others may be superior in some or even all aspects doesn't mean it's a bad camera. I recognize the faults of the RX100 series (of which I own 2) and consider them significant, BUT I still think they're excellent cameras.

The color/tone of the real world samples is awful and experience w/ the RX100 series suggests no amount of PP will completely fix this either. I still love the RX100 cams, but I wish Sony would do something about the color/tone accuracy.

This is a terrible idea. Law enforcement would be the first ones to abuse this technology.

I left Nikon many years ago, but the Nikon DL18-50 may convince me to come back due to the Hybrid AF.

Great shot and damn you for taking it in Colorado. We'd love to move there, but it's tough to pack up your entire life and move several thousand miles.

Steve Bingham: Been there - but never in the early AM. Awesome photo - and the best out of dozens I have seen. The road you traveled on is, at times, a narrow (one car) shelf road with death a certainty if you fall off the shelf. It has been called the most dangerous road in Colorado due to the almost dozen deaths. I can't imagine traveling this road at night!!!!!!! I don't imagine Sierravin ever had an SUV up this road!!!!! :)

However, I do see some perspective distortion. PS CC or earlier can easily handle this. Puzzled how it got 5 poor votes - and the very reason I no longer submit!

sierravin, the Toyota 4Runner is an SUV and it will hold its own against pretty much anything off-road.

This shouldn't even be a question. The only reason any officer would not want to be record is because they are violating the law. Moreover, they are performing their job in public and as such, there is no reason why recording them should ever be prohibited.

AngryCorgi: Success = what happens when Canon uses Sony sensors instead of the nonsense they fab.

The S95 used a Sony sensor as well.

After having rented the G1X M2 when it was first released, I decided not to purchase it based on its inability to lock focus in some low light situations. Then about 2 weeks ago, I reconsidered, as I wanted a new toy for an upcoming backpacking trip. I've still had the focusing issues, as well as some focusing issues I was previously unaware of; the camera often locks focus on some tiny object in the frame rather than object desired. That aside, I'm really enjoying the camera and any shortcomings in IQ (compared to a DSLR) are more than made up for in shooting enjoyment.

NeilJones: How do you hold those things? Seriously, so awkward, no grip, just a slippery box. Not a great design at all. At least the Panny's give you something to hold.

I've got larger hands than most men and yet have never had a problem holding any of the S-series cams. Take off the mittens.
