Photokina, missing news?
Sep 25, 2008

What has suprised me about Photokina is the lack of suprises.

That Sony would be doing an FF was on the cards for ages, and the 5D successor was no suprise either. Also, I would have been more suprised if Nikon had NOT launched the D80 replacement.

The only real suprises I have had so far have been from Panasonic and Leica, in a way odd as they are two companies considered to be struggling on the fringes.

But there are a lot of things I was expecting that did NOT arrive:

Budget LV DSLR camera from Nikon.

Silent LV DSLR cameras that do not neet to flap the mirror and that can also do high burst.

Compact camers, particularly the larer sensor types, that concentrate on getting more DR and high ISO than megapixels. I would suggest that by now almost everybody who is likely to buy a camera like the G10 would realise that the incresed MP makes things worse!

No m43 camera from Olympus, that clay model is a joke, right!
