  • Um, they state the sensor size (APS) literally on the first page, and again on the 2nd page. They also discuss the M adapter on page 4.

  • It doesn't, it uses a new custom mount.

  • Um, score isn't based on the number of pros and cons (eg. a few important pros outweigh a bunch of minor cons) and the Leica X1 only got a "Recommended" badge, not a "Highly Recommended"

  • "Smaller sensor cant be better than bigger ones. That's a physics. "

    If that were true then IQ would never improve. Yes given sensors that are identical in every way other than size a bigger one...

  • There already are DSLRs that have on-chip PDAF points for better live view and video AF, and Nikon FF DSLRs can already operate in APS crop mode at a faster max framerate.

    However DSLRS can never...

  • Both those claims are bunk, tho comparing the Nikon to other 1" sensors the IQ should be better

  • If it takes better photos than their smartphone then yes, beginners will benefit from this camera.

  • It's not coming, ever. Even with a 1/2.3" sensor f2.8 at 1000mm equiv (180mm actual) would be a 6.5cm diameter aperture, that's twice the size of the FZ200's and RX10's aperture.

    Just bumping the...

  • 1" superzoom: £800
    1/2.5" superzoom: £250

    Consider that some people will be happy with a camera that costs 3x less.

  • I've never had problems opening an articulated screen with gloves on, the only real disadvantage is it becomes a 2 step process to flip out then up/down.

  • It can't make the hardware faster, but the software can use less hardware resources and so run faster.

    If the software spends less time processing pictures between shots then it can take shots...

  • Having used a GH1 (fully articulating) and GX7 (tilt only) the full articulation is useful because, if you're using a tripod, you can monitor the camera while standing to the side or towards the...

  • It's almost certainly a "Pentile RGBW" display, which means a resolution of 1280x960 by using subpixel rendering. You get better resolution than an RGB but you can get colour artefacts on high...

  • @deep7 USB charging does have the advantage that you can use those standard battery powered phone chargers tho

  • But the launch RRP of the LX7 was $500, just because it went through a period of heavy discount doesn't mean it's worth more now, it's still a fair bit below the original RRP (which is what I was...

  • @Mike now show me a non-pro grade camera that's kept it's value
