  1. Sony's QX10 and QX100 lens camera systems offer its users the best of both worlds: high-quality digital images with the flexibility of a smartphone. The only problem is that they aren't exactly cheap and they're proprietary meaning they can't be used...

    That's SONY for yeah! Too much money, how long with the shutter last on that DLR before you have to replace it or just get a new DLR. I have there Cybershot nice camera good 16x optical zoom with long lens chamber that pops out. Although my Olympus is 15x SLR heavier uses 4x AA rechargeable batteries or standard. SONY have to get lit-on battery pack .
