Mega Roundup: Hands-On Reports from the CES 2014 Trade Show Floor

And now time for the CES 2014 Trade Show Floor Hands-On Reports mega-round-up! To make it easier to scan, skim and read, we are grouping the posts by camera manufacturer and within that, by individual camera or product or product group. We obviously can't find everything of interest, so if we missed anything of interest, please let us know using the online contact form.

A lot of the newly announced cameras and lenses are available for pre-order at Amazon. Your orders and pre-orders are the main source of funding for this free-for-all-to-read blog with free full-text RSS feed and no banner ads, so your help is greatly appreciated in advance!
