Seems like this forum is not too excited about the P100, eh?

Looks promising on paper. Zoom while recording 1080p video, backlit CMOS sensor, 10 full resolution fps, usable shots up to iso800 (even 1600 it seems)...

The images I have seen so far aren't stellar though, not much better than a P90. We will see!

The Nikon P-100 is getting a lot of publicity, but it does not seem to show any amazing results with its images. Most users see the new P-100 as just a minor upgrade.

Against the P90:

-CMOS high iso capable sensor vs underpowered CCD that produces chroma noise even on iso100
-1080p video with stereo sound and full zoom vs VGA, mono and no zoom
-10 fr-fps vs 1.5 fr-fps
-26x zoom vs 24x zoom

As we both stated, IQ seems to be lagging behind those impressive features, but spec-wise it's not exactly a minor upgrade, I can't see why people would think it is. It's not like I'm getting it, I'm happy with my P90 + Pentax dSLR. However, I find it funny that 'nobody' is talking about this camera, and not just on this site.
