In DxO Mark’s testing the Nikon Coolpix P7700 does very well. It does not beat all comers but what it does do, very convincingly, is to beat everything that might reasonably be compared to it. With an overall score of 53 the Coolpix is beaten by only 5 other cameras, all of which are significantly more expensive. Of the other 5 cameras two have a fixed focal length lenses, one has interchangeable lenses and the other two have lenses with much less zoom range. A wide zoom range does not make a camera good but if you want a camera to carry around all the time then it is very useful.

The individual scores are, for Portrait: 21.1 bits of colour depth, for Landscape: 11.1 Evs of dynamic range and for Sport: 191ISO. These are really impressive scores and place the Coolpix 7700 right at the very top of the remaining cameras in the high end compact class. For Dynamic range it is actually 4th over all.

The Canon PowerShot G15 and Nikon Coolpix P7700 are two cameras with a long lineage (with the Nikon's being a bit harder to follow). The Canon PowerShot G-series and Nikon's competitive offerings have gone through numerous variations over the years, but haven't strayed far from the original design philosophy: a fast lens, manual controls, and expandability via system accessories. The thing that's changed the most has been how you compose photos. For a long time, both the G and P-series cameras tended to offer optical viewfinders and articulating LCDs. On these latest models, the G15 lost the flip-out/rotating LCD but retains the optical viewfinder, while the P7700 sports only an articulating display and has shed its viewfinder.
