Phil of Cilcain: The only 'real' premium superzoom camera was the Panasonic DMC-FZ200? Did someone forget the Fuji X-S1? With its manual zoom its a classic.

Why would DPR remind readers of the fact they never bothered to review the X-S1? Best forgotten, of course.

Digitall: Nice looking camera, very nice specs. but the tiny sensor vs. body size do not make my day. Sure that Olympus could put a sensor M4:3 here with this fixed lens camera. maybe one day...

Or reacquaint yourself with the laws of physics.

The page is quite buggy at the moment. Loads correctly less than 50% of the time.

atamola: DP reviewer: "Ok guys, Just finished. Quick, we need something negative to say about the camera? Anyone?

Guy 1: "well, maybe we can say that the Interface and controls can be overwhelming"

Guy 2: "All interfaces and controls at this level are. We should add **initially**"

DP reviewwer: "Great. We need more"

Guy 1: "we can say... (pause)..."

Guy 2: "... that the In-camera Raw conversion interface is somewhat unintuitive!!!"

DP reviewer: "You are a god-send!!! What else!? What else!?"

Guy 1: "We can say that Auto focus with Four Thirds lenses is slow"

Guy 2: "but it is not"

DP reviewer: "Let's add **in dim conditions with tricky subjects**"

Guy 1: "What are tricky subjects??"

DP reviewer: "Stay focused, damn it! We need to say negative things!! got it?? Got it??"

Guy 2: "If that's the case why not that the "Multi-screen live view interface looks very dated"

DP reviewer: perfect, we are almost done.

That's strange... When I listened to the tapes I could only hear moans and groans.

Why doesn't DPR publish photos of the camera when every other photo site has them?

Shame there are no photos showing what each lens can do.

Good lens and big sensor is the only way for compacts to justify their existence these days....

Would be nice if Nikon was equally proactive in addressing their customers' concerns...

D600 ring a bell?

JEROME NOLAS: Great IQ for less money, sounds good to me.

What do you think? Too many cams, so little time.

One question: what's the starting bid at the 'auction'?

I'm thinking of getting two for my 8yo twins.

In reply to:

108: Very nice camera, nice samples. Now the american Amazon retail price new is 546.95 usd, whereas on Amazon germany and france it sells for euros 561. At today conversion rate ( 1.35 dollar for 1 euro ), that puts the" european" 7800 at 757,35 usd equivalent. Given all the talk about free trade and fair treatment to all nations, anyone can explain to me this discrepancy ? Assuming some kind of adjustment for whatever economic/standard of living reason, let's say a 1.15 conversion rate to be nice, that's still 15% more than US retail price. What are we european customers ? Idiots to be milked dry by austerity measures while our american counterparts continue enjoying better prices for the same goods paid with paper printed at will by the FED ?

Not an economy thing. It's a fiscal policy thing. Talk to your local government representative.
