Interested in a high-quality 28-300mm eq. constant f/2.8 zoom lens mounted in front of a sensor that is larger than conventional all-in-one long zooms, but that fits comfortably in a coat pocket and won't break the bank? Read our in-depth Olympus Stylus 1 review to discover all of the great (and a few not-so-great) things this one-of-a-kind little digital camera has to offer!

The full-frame, FX-format Nikon Df takes the same great sensor and processor pairing of the professional Nikon D4, and places them in a weather-sealed, retro-styled body that's rich with external controls. (And it does so at half the price of the pro camera.) It's arguably the best available-light shooter around, but is it the right camera for you? Read our Nikon Df review, and find out!

Panasonic's "micro" Micro Four Thirds camera, the tiny Panasonic GM1 gets our full review treatment. The tiny camera features the same sensor and processor as its larger sibling, the GX7, but Panasonic has done some innovative engineering to pack all that power into such a small and pocketable digital camera. Check out our Panasonic GM1 review to see why this camera was voted the Best Pocket Interchangeable Lens Camera of 2013!

Canon's updated their powerful and nearly-pocketable flagship PowerShot with the new Canon G16. We've just completed our review of this high-end compact digital camera, and while it's not strikingly different from the previous model, it does bring a big update to the table: speed. With vastly increased AF speed and continuous shooting frames per second -- plus built-in Wi-Fi -- the Canon G16 seems like a surefire upgrade, but is it significant enough to make G15 owners yearn for the sweet '16? Read our Canon G16 review to find out!

We've put it through its paces, and the Sony RX100 II really sets a new bar for pocket camera performance.
