Re: V3 vs V1
In reply to The Smoking Camera, 6 months ago

I am a gear head when it comes to bodies ever since I got my D40. I have seriously soured on any new addition since my J1/D4/D600 experience. The most disappointing was the J1, but even after that got a nice used v1 for a specific one time shooting reason. I have come to enjoy and use this camera as my go to travel and first choice when my iphone doesn't suffice enough so that I am close to wanting another, one with the 6.7 zoom and another with either a tele or the ft and a fx prime. What is there not to like for a $200 buck body with what it gives me

V3 things that hold me back
1) $$$$
2) battery
3) strange mix of features for $$$$ that proved me wih no incremental value propsition

Things that might get me to leap at the current price
Give me real two stop ISO improvement
Continuous focus all points with ft1

Other stuff all nice and tolerable for a body selling at 500 new

I expect this to be a low volume product
