Mike FL: Buying a P&S is all all about personal choices/needs. I have Panasonic, Olympus, SONY, and Canon P&S so far.

I do not like RX100.M1, and I bought LX7 back to then b/c RX100.M1's zoom is not wide enough and there was no G7X yet.

I did not buy Canon G7x but bought RX100.M3 b/c EVF (even I hardly use it) and better optical + others advantages.

My next one will be Nikon DL18-50 for the same reason that I bought LX7 over RX100.M1.

Canon is the most profitable camera maker in the would for a reason, and you know why.

Because if you buy a Canon, you do not have to sit for hours in front a computer photoshopping, to make your pictures look like if they were shot with a Canon, no?

Mike FL: For $30 more, users can get SONY RX100.M3 which is an real thing:
- better/ fast lens
- pop-up EVF
- Flip up LCD
-...

For more less the same SPEC, users will pay less or much less for RX100.M2 or RX100.M1.

Yes, this Canon is thin than RX100.M1/2, but RX100.M1/2's lens have more reach, and, again, cheaper.

The good thing for all Canon 1" P&S is that all Canon 1" P&S use SONY sensor.

That all, and take your pick b/c it is your money.

Thanks for the list, for those who count specs per dollar. Do the Sony 1"s also have Digic 7 processors with subjectively (for some of us) more attractive Canon color jpgs and touchscreen in the smallest possible, pocketable 1" sensor body?

No built in tripod - no buy!
😊
Otherwise G9x still would be a very tempting and now even faster mk2 pocketable nice-to-have substitute for my often too big and heavy first gen m43 28-84 combo, which collects too much dust, due to size. Canon also delivers attractive Sooc jpgs, like my big Oly m43 and better than my handy wideangle-only smartphone.

faterikcartman: I can't wait to see how some folks process the RAW files and post them in the Medium Format subforum here! Oh wait. Never mind.

Nobody corrected us, but after a closer look, I just observed there has actually been a Medium Format Talk forum for a while. Thanks DPR!

Such forum still does not exist but as this is a very compact camera, maybe folks could post their first cat pictures in the Mobile Photography Talk forum asking for c&c and best settings!

amatoer: Cons: 'Green yellows & cool greens in JPEG aren't the most pleasing'

One could perhaps add: Maybe not so good for JPG-shooters and unskilled RAW-shooters, where pleasant color (accuracy) may be the most important aspect of a camera. More than bells and whistles.

NarrBL,
Agree with most of what you said, except that it may not be so easy to setup the 'precision instrument' to ones own taste, if that is 'pleasing and natural' . And whenever you reset to factory settings or change mode you may be back to that 'non-pleasing' default. Like with most flatscreens today, even the expensive ones; many people never adjust the settings away from those 'exaggerated' colors or forget to do it again for all sources, for example after a reset. I think DPR was right in mentioning JPG defaults as a 'con'.

Mariano,
Perhaps DPR actually tested colors, before writing the 'Cons'....

Interesting new (to me) Nikon camera!

A dedicated 'Vintage (film and digital) Cameras' forum on dpreview could perhaps be nice! Including topics such as how to scan film to digital.

Isacas: Are they a bit under exposed or is it my eyes?

Agree. The clipped highlight argument must be something invented by people wearing sunglasses too often :-)

I think these ants were just suffering from megalomania and dyslexia, thinking they were some medium format leaf shutters, eating Canons for breakfast.

snomer: Such posts are always a great inspiration but always make me realize that I will never be able to visit places that beautiful, ever more so take beautiful photos of them.

I will let others max out their creiditcards and pollute,
when I can find that 'decisive moment', while I commute.
And preferably by bicycle,
on this Crowded Planet.

Lu Heng: Is it just me, or your test pictures are getting better? I enjoyed some of them as photographs.
And I think the lens are not bad at all.

I had the exact same feeling. There are some very good photos among these samples. Warning: You may forget to look for lens 'errors', etc! :-)

Well done Leica. As can be seen, B&W still sometimes is superior. I like the dpr samples from this camera and the samples and 100 pct crops are of course much better than what we usually get out of our (more advanced) compact, m4/3 or DSLR cameras, with all their 'filters', sometimes more or less natural colors and occasionally therefrom converted B&Ws....
Hopefully this first Leica B&W niche attempt could develop into an X3-Monochrome with a summilux 50mm/1.4 equivalent, which could be more within reach of us lower/middle class amateurs. E.g. as a 'once in our life' investment supplement to our color cameras.

On article Shooting with the Leica M9-P (620 comments in total)

Thanks for the article. Although it is also far above my camera budget, as most european made equipment is, I found it an interesting article. It only increased my lust for this camera, despite some of the irrelevant shortcomings. Only find it a pity that the shutter sound is louder than in the filmdays. Same goes for my Pen; too loud.
I found some of picture samples to be very good actually and satisfying for such a camera, although I know I can sometimes also get some good photos with my cheap Ixus. But that is also irrelevant
Funny how some people react, just because they are not willing to or able to pay for or appreciate qualities, that for some others mean a lot.
