LiangMing: To be honest, the picture quality of this camera is better than the one coming out of the iPhone X. Think about the price and compact size, it will be a good pocket camera to carry along with your cellphone on the trip.

not so sure
maybe foe iPhone X

Branko Mitic: You cannot mark only LX10 lens green in the table when you have chart just little below where is shown that G7X Mark II has the best lens. Generally G7X and G7X Mark II have the best lens in this 1" battle. 100mm f2.8 makes all the difference for making this cameras replacement for aps-c+kit combination. LX10 has the better lens then G7X (Mark II) only from 24-27mm and then worse from 27-72mm and then not at all range from 72-100mm. All of this cameras looks like cell phone on 24/28mm, no matter do you use f1.4, f1.8 or less, but when you zoom in for portrait you are getting separation from cell phone and actually there is significant difference between 75mm f2.8 and 100mm f2.8 in terms of bokeh.

what u say just your guess or have evidence

Dpreview please do a comparison of 1 inch with pixel 2 which I believe have best IQ among all phone

for 1 inch I choose G7X II for its lens
both for 21mm in wide if disable distortion
and 100mm F2.8 at tele

MrBrightSide: Great review. The one use case you might be forgetting is that there is a vast army of people in the social media industry (like me) who would jump on a camera that takes better-than-iPhone pictures which can then be quickly uploaded onto Facebook et al using their phone as the relay point.
The one area where iPhones fail is at taking pictures in dim ballrooms and other weirdly lit spaces. This little guy would be a godsend.

what is pre cature?

Dan Monroe: Does it have better autofocus than the horrible G7X Mark II? I absolutely love the G7X Mark II, but its autofocus drives me insane... :(

what are u referring to
AF in low light, or for fast moving subject

Don't tell me AF-s is bad for stationary subject in good light

I agree with u 100mm F2.8 is real useful
for zoom 70mm not enough

100mm is minimum for useful zoom lens

I have heard G7X II actually have the widest lens among the bunch if one disable distortion correction in RAW progarm ( I think not possible in Lightroom)

Than it has like 21mm wide
If that is true, that it is really special

So many say prefer take pics with phone rather than real camera like TG-5

I am the opposite. I prefer a real camera with 4x zoom and real shutter

tonyz1: I'd love to see a comparison from DPR of the TG-5 vs the GoPro Hero 6 vs the iPhone X. I recently purchased this from Costco and found the image quality lacking in my quick 15 minute test compared to my iPhone X and returned it. Would love to see how this compares given that an iPhone X has a 28mm and 56mm optically stabilized lens with extremely high ease of use. Also, would be interested in seeing how the TG-5 with fisheye attachment compares to a GoPro.

Even if these are not directly comparable, I would think most consumers would either take a GoPro + iPhone in a waterproof case or buy a TG-5 + fisheye.

TG-6 has 100mm 4x zoom ,with adapter lens zoom to 170mm 7x
This is a real camera with RAW

compare apple and orange
also which water[roof case u recommend? real tough like TG?

u "found the image quality lacking in " Costco?
are u serious?

for comparing IQ, 100% zoom in big screen is gold standard
u also probably miss the famous nocer Olympus color

some people buy $2000 camera for Olympus color

I can't believe anyone would say TG-5 has bad IQ unless defective
Of course for a small sensor camera if u take dark pics at ISO 1600, IQ is bad

Actually in bright well exposed ISO 1600 pics, IQ still OK, I turn NR off in camera for maximum detail

for low ISO 100/200 those famous nice Olympus color is worth the money, also good detail (with NR turn off in camera which is a new feature in TG-5, make big difference in detail)

The jpeg color has noticeable improve from my TG-2 which is already decent

I like TG form long time ago since TG-2
I wish there is a big sensor version but for now I recommend anyone to buy it

nafik: Not sure how different TG-5 from TG-4 which is the only camera I ever returned because of literally terrible IQ of...cruise snapshots that I bought it for. In identical situations I used half priced Fuji XP 120 and while the results were not exactly NG quality, I did not had quite a few keepers. Not so with TG-4.

You must have a defective TG-4
at low ISO my TG-5 has very good IQ

Even at high ISO decent for a small sensor
