    I would look forward to seeing the Nikon CoolPix A. Selling points would be the RAW capability, aswell as 16 MP and a fixed lens especially.

    Past Nikons were awful in terms of looks as far as I was concerned. This looks different.

    £1,099 – and your called “amateur” photographer?

  • andyg0043

    What about Ricoh GR ?

  • Mike

    Great to see such a short list! So often there is a river of products to wade through.. I am looking for a camera with image quality potential- the type that appears to improve the look of the subject through the viewfinder, plus fast click shutterspeed plus sub £400…( bonus is a long lens to equal the old type 200mm lens

    who has £1000 to day to buy a camera? who? tell us please – i thought it was amateur photography not rich photographers who have stacks of cash for fun.

    eagerly awaits the arrival of Fuji X100S .
    I have a lot of fun with the X100 despite of all its faults and quirks It produces great results with beautiful colours
