dash2k8: If flying over crowds is a no-no, then lots of marathons and other crowd events will have to resort to different equipment to obtain overhead shots that will be safer but also much more limiting. I agree it's better to be safe than sorry, I merely point out the small cost of that safety. I was once hired to shoot the local Iron Man Triathlon with a drone and obviously the drone flew over people. Those same amazing shots of hundreds swimming in the sea will now be either unavailable, or require REAL helicopters. Again, I'm not arguing against safety, just thinking out loud.

easy just shoot from the side LOL.

Douglas F Watt: It's not that DPR criticisms are not valid, it's that the overall picture that emerges from this review seems just ever so slightly tilted . . . . in the direction of pet peeves and gripes about the interface, lack of touchscreen and AF tracking, instead of an emphasis on just how stunning the overall achievement is of having a sharp 24-600 2.4-4 that comes in at just over 2 lbs, and that provides superb video functionality with very good stills ability. Additionally, and indicative of their lack of time to really explore the full envelope of the camera's OS, there is a touchscreen interface available, through the smartphone remote control app, which at least IMO is class-leading, allowing for full control of many shooting parameters, including touch-location of AF point. That it won't replace FF or even APS-C equipment for great DR, S/N ratio in low light seems a sacrifice one must make willingly to get what the package does provide. As for the Sony menu system, it's not that bad.

Jacs, it has a 600mm eq reach :-)

Yake: The macro looks like a good lens for dentists who photograph their patients' teeth. At close distances the flash units will work great.

he would have to stick it in their mouth to get close enough.

what is the point of a 28mm macro lens, the designer obviously has never shot macro before.

Donald B: I think you need to compare it to the k3ii at iso 6400 raw .

without it still is identical, it is a studio comparison after all ,camera fixed on a tripod why wouldn't you use pixel shift ? isn't this site all about max image quality you can get from a camera :)

Donald B: Are you guys for real "compact" it weighs nearly as much as a 1.25 litre bottle of coke. could you imagine carrying that around your neck all day.

fz150 is 600 mm eq and weighs 350g my epl5 and 600 eq lens is still around half that weight with twice the sensor size.

maybe Nikon decided better skin tones (textures)were more important than lower noise and turned off the in camera nr with this new camera.

Donald B: No "Live Boost" that's a pretty basic setting on all oly cameras.

he was complaining that the evf wasn't responding to adjusting exposure comp. all you do is turn live boost off.

Donald B: don't you love the distortion on the 85mm that took the group shot, I want one of those ;)

brownie314: I really don't get this product. It is totally "me too" in an already crowded market. Pentax (Ricoh) had something unique in the gr. Why not try a ff version of that bad boy? Love it/hate it - at least it would be different.

i was referring to the above comment on the GR

yes defiantly unique, no evf in 2016 even Panasonic has small compacts with an evf.

cgarrard: The best serious compact on the market- it and the GR.

its all about getting the photo. most of the time you cant even see the image in day light let alone nail critical focus, to me they are just hit and miss cameras.
