Your tests are absurd

It's absurd to apply the same tests for fixed lens cameras as you use for interchangable lens cameras. For fixed lens cameras, you should provide tests that measure the image quality produced by the sensor and lens together, not just the sensor alone. After all there is no way to change the lens on a fixed lens camera so who cares how well the sensor does by itself?

I agree since they need to measure the total system to make any valid judgements.

I also wonder why anyone would prefer to look through an electronic viewfinder of 201K which cripples both the Nikon and Canon bridge cameras ?  Who can hold a 1,200 mm lens at arms length to compose with the external LCD ? Silly.

If you can't see it, how can you photograph it ?

Fujifilm Finepix and Panasonic Lumix both provide high resolution eye level viewfinders which are big differentiators in favor of their bridge cameras.

Thanks for your interest in DxOMark.

Compacts and High end compacts are very difficult to test, we try to perform test on the most awaited but we cannot test every compact lenses.

Best regards,
