#5. "RE: P7700 vs. Canon G15"
In response to In response to 0


Phoenix, US
          

My first Coolpix was a P5000, which I replaced with a P6000, replaced by a P7000, and then replaced with a P7100. All replacements were a significant improvement over their predecessors. I have no intention of replacing the P7100 with a P7700. To my mind, the extra 1-stop increase in speed of the lens is a poor trade for the OVF. And to be honest, I really don't even use the OVF on the P7100 all that often. But good luck trying to take it away from me. As others have mentioned, in direct sunlight, even a relatively poor OVF, such as the one on the P7100, is a whole bunch better than not having one at all. The other situation where an OVF can save your bacon is when tracking a moving subject. Not easily done with the LCD. I think Canon was pretty smart keeping the OVF on the G15. But if you like to convert your raw files in CNX2 like I do, then the G15 makes no sense. At this point in time, it appears to me that the P7100 is the zenith of the Coolpix line. I hope that changes at some later date. The P7100 is an outstanding compact camera, especially if you are looking for a compact camera with Nikon DNA, and compatibility with CNX2.
