I wonder what Panasonic will bring to the table on 18th of July with the new LX7.
You're forgetting the Fuji X10. Ah maybe it's too big compared to the others.
Oh ya it has the 2nd "all time brighter" lens with f2.0-2.8. But still 2 stops slower than EX2F and 1 stop slower than XZ-1 and RX100. But no-doubt it's a capable camera. Ah..I like the VF.

Err.... Are you referring to the Samsung?

The Samsung comes with the 'grip'... Looks like its more ergonomic compared with the oly, Sony, canon, panny. And also the tilt screen, which would be great for self or couple portraits.
What I like is its capability to use adaptive accessories, like G10,11,12 and G1X. How good if XZ-1 and RX100 comes with that design and filter threads.

X10 is nice but still doubts about the orb issue and menu system a bit clunky.. and big.
Not really.. no doubt that on paper, the f1.4 lens trumps all the current enthuasiast compacts using the same 1/1.7 inch sensor but after using S90 and XZ-1, got urge for bigger sensor di.
Kinda hope XZ-2 will be an even bigger revolution since Oly is in bed with Sony now according to the rumors.
I heard people saying that Olympus "confessed" the use of Sony manufactured sensors on their cameras, but the official statement is nowhere to be found. ><

The new sensor/lens combo seems to fix it. The menu is pretty straight forward to me. It's the limitations in certain modes that's confusing. Can't deny the size though.
I have a feeling that in future, we can further sub-categorize the "Semi-pro compacts" or "Prosumer compacts" into "large aperture cameras", "performance oriented cameras", "large sensor equipped cameras" etc.
Maybe it's too detailed, but nowadays we can see a large numbers of "large aperture compacts", and few "performance oriented compacts". The above-mentioned XZ-1, RX100 and EX2F being in the former group, and G1X and P7000 being in the later group.
Haha. Just kidding.This post has been edited by Ryou: Jul 9 2012, 02:45 PM
