    Given the reputation of the P6000, I'm surprised Nikon is trying again
    in this segment. I already see problems with the design of the P7000.

    Who needs flash when the P7000 has low noise up to ISO 3200?

    Also, why call it a "G11a" when the P7000 has a far superior optical
    viewfinder to any of the Canon G Series?

    15-all. ;-)

    I agree, it probably isn't worth trading up to. But for someone
    looking to replace an earlier G Series, there is now a real choice.
    For someone looking for a high quality "compact" digicam with a
    significantly better optical viewfinder, there is now a real choice.

    I will try to test a P7000 against my Panasonic Lumix GF-1 at the
    earliest opportunity. If the P7000 is as good as I expect it will be,
    it will be time to buy one and sell the GF-1.

    A 28-200mm lens is too useful to ignore; it will cover everything I
    use the GF-1 for - and no need to clean the sensor. I hate cleaning
    sensors. ;-)

    When I can get my hands on a sample, (I suspect that will be at PhotoExpo in
    October,) I will see for myself and run my own ISO tests. However, I
    strongly suspect that 800 may be barely usable.
