ditto, spouse needed a compact travel camera, bought a sony Rx100.I gave up waiting for Nikon to get its act together on that camera. I just bought a Sony RX100 V and it is a killer camera. And it has a built in viewfinder. Only complaint I have about the Sony is that it has no hotshoe for a stand alone flash, but the built in one can be pointed up for bounce.
Too late for me. I would not bet on that happening at that time and then I always like to wait a while to get some feedback on a new camera and let the mfgr work out the inevitable kinks.There's an update at the bottom.
"Update: I just received a tip that the new release date for the DL cameras is January 17th, 2017"
Well, not exactly unexpected. But unfortunate, for me anyways. 24-85 is my most used focal range for general use and travel, and I was looking forward to seeing how the IQ was from the DL24-85. Good IQ plus decent performance would have meant a purchase, for me. Back to looking at other options.
