    A long time ago it was 1K then 5K then 10K.... a proper name for this is the endless thread. Maybe that will clear things up.

    As for being mad...

    I'm back from the rain hike, I hurt my shoulder, I lost my glasses in the mist, I walked in the rain a lot, but still it was awesome. You want to see pictures? Of course I have pictures for you.

    I really don't fell like reading the discussion I have participated in before I went for the two days hike. Might be my shoulder that hurts too much or maybe I'm just too tired or maybe I found my inner center of peace.

    So...the 1020 is rumored to see EOL in September. Well, I just checked the website I use and I see that the 1020 is now $430, including shipping. Perhaps I hang tough until August and decide whether I want to get a white one or a yellow one. I wont do black if I end up with a black Nexus 5.

    Funny thing, this camera is from last year and still only takes 12 MP pictures. And I'm glad about it, the JPGs are still up to 7 MB. And with a resolution of 4000 x 3000 I'm certainly ready until they release the next thing after 4K, as I only look at them on screens and most certainly won't print a large poster.

    That's why I don't get the MP craze of phones. I rather rely on an optical zoom and a bigger sensor/lens for quality...

    Hmmm... The 1020 will maybe take better pics than this,no? 41MP lossless zoom.

    It's lossless zoom in theory and it's certainly better than digital zoom. However it can't beat optical zoom as it will only use a fraction of its sensor for this kind of "zoom", while keeping the limits of the very small lens.

    Our results show the benefits of zooming in with a compact camera over even the best-in-class smartphone. The Lumia 1020's digital zoom simply can't stack up against the Canon S120's optical zoom. The Canon can not only zoom in further, it also retains detail and sharpness better when zoomed in to its full 5X power.

    Very nice pics Chregu!

    I didn't know Switzerland had lizards! Things you learn. :)

    I agree with your assessment of optical vs lossless zoom. I know the 1020 is great but it doesn't beat a real optical zoom.

    We're taking our DSLR with us to Switzerland when we go. Let's see the 1020 beat my 300mm :P

    It's an Alpine salamander, I have never encountered one before. However I have seen a few Fire salamanders which are pretty amazing too.

    Sand lizards and their relatives are everywhere :-)

    The pictures are actually from the same region as you will go to. South of Spiez. You won't go there however, it's not very touristic. Nothing but nice hiking trails :)

    the way I see it is that the 1020 is good enough to replace your point and shoot :)

    Good for you!

    I prefer to have a very fast autofocus and almost no pause between shots, I also prefer to have an optical zoom. I prefer a variety of manual settings including adjusting aperture and shutter speed to a very high extent. As far as I know that's also possible with the 1020, but due to its limited optics I don't expect it to have a too amazing effect. But most of all, most of all I prefer to not worry about the battery.

    I also prefer a slim phone.

    But you're of course right, I still want to have a good camera in my phone as I only take my dedicated camera to special places. Even though it's very small.

    But still not good enough to challenge a DSLR. I'm actually itching to put the 1020 vs my Nikon P5100, which is an older camera but has enough manual controls to blow away most point and shoots. I pull that bad boy out on serious vacations and special special occasions only...

    yup I do that too. I bring my sanyo camera for special events and trips. for parties and any other things I use my phone because its more easier to take with me
