Hallo all, A friend of mine would like to buy a new camera and asked for my advise. Let me tell you what he wants - - good JPEG quality (he is not interested in working with raw files) - once he buys a camera, he is not looking at adding lens - he wants bokeh ability. Reason of me suggesting DSLR as a comparison instead of M43 is because my friend loves to get traditional brands of Canon and Nikons (like most blokes out there). So upon understanding his needs, I throw high end compacts into the comparison. Here's my list of questions - - Will a high end compact (Sony RX100, Panny LX7, Fuji XF1) has better image quality in good light vs entry level DSLR with kit lens? - Low light image quality of bigger APS-C sensor definitely should be better, but I guess their Kit lens small aperture would require high ISO in handheld shots, thus resulting in similar end image quality, or worse? Because high end compacts can use much lower ISO than APSC combo with kit lens. - Which camera has the best out of camera Jpeg, a Canon EOS 650D, a Nikon 3200D, a Sony RX100, Panasonic LX7, Fuji XF1? I had read Ming Thein's blog review that Fuji XF1 has superb Jpeg, but poor Raw picture. And general forums states that Canon has more natural skin tones in Jpeg files. - I assume APS-C's bokeh ability with their kit lens F3.5-F5.6 is about the same as those high end compacts?
