Would I Have Bought The New Nikon DL24-85 vs The Panasonic Lumix LX100?
The Nikon DL series was announced exactly a week after I had placed my order for the Panasonic Lumix LX100 from BuyDig.com. Yes, I had heard the rumors but Nikon did not really figure in my choices — the only brands I was seriously considering having been Fuji, Olympus and Panasonic.
Should I have waited for the Nikon DL? I don’t think so.
Why? First and foremost SENSOR SIZE. It is like trying to overcome an addiction. I really, really do want to get away from 1″ sensors. That is like the #1 goal in my life! I know it is sad — when sensor size becomes the most important goal of your life. So that alone would have been enough for me to discount the Nikon.
And then there is the availability. June 2016? In my world that is the lifetime away. I would probably have taken over 6,000 pictures with the LX100 by then!
So right now I have no regrets. Whenever I see stuff about how good the Nikon DLs are I just remind myself, 1″ and in this case SIZE matters a LOT.
