Already back in February Nikon announced three new camera’s in its new DL range. Two of these three cameras look very similar. The Nikon DL24-85 and the Nikon DL18-50. These large sensor compacts are great for professional photographers that want to carry something small and pocketable. The main difference is the focal range which is 18-50mm for the DL18-50 and 24-85mm for the DL24-85. Big surprise right? At a first glance this seems to be the only difference. However, it turns out that more subtle changes are made. In this Nikon DL24-85 vs Nikon DL18-50 comparison we list all the differences we found so far.

Welcome to my Canon G7X mark II review. First of all I want to apologize for the poor quality of the product shots.

Sony RX100 IV vs Canon G7X II vs Nikon DL24-85

In 2012 Sony rocked the photography world with the RX100. A very compact camera with serious capabilities, because of its 1″ sensor.
