I voted for the Sigma 18-35mm with my own money. It's an amazing lens for the price. A lens that I will probably never sell. If I had to nitpick, I wish it came with weather sealings and image stabilisation.

Ken Aisin: Where's the EVF?!

Not planning to go underwater with it. Just wanted a rugged compact raw camera with EVF/OVF for outdoor use.

A standard hot shoe there would have saved the day though because I can put my Voigtlander 28mm OVF there. But knowing that Nikon 1 system has its proprietary hotshoe, this will never happen.

Rear LCD just doesn't work for me somehow. I've given it many honest tries.

I wouldn't even bite even if they offered a free subscription. Listen Adobe, I want to own my tools. I don't like to rent my tools.

This is what the P7700 should have been.

If it comes with a tripod mount and a wireless remote shutter release, I would get one.

On Epic fail? 70-200s of all makes among least reliable lenses news story (151 comments in total)

historianx: In 30+ years of shooting in all sorts of conditions with Olympus/Zuiko OM and HG/SHG digital lenses never once have I had a failure. Then the digitals do not have that IS bugaboo built into them, to create even more problems. Maybe Canikon should take a lesson from one the world's eminent lensmakers.

I shoot both Nikon and Olympus. Never had a single issue with my Olympus gear. Can't say the same about my Nikon gear. My 85mm F1.4G came with a decentering defect (repaired under warranty.) My 70-200mm VRII's zoom ring stuck after about a year of use (repaired under warranty.) Had a 50 F1.4D that ground louder and louder over time (repair refused because it was supposed to grind that loud according to Nikon. sold.) Had two SB-900s that just died one after another (both repaired under warranty and sold.) My D600 also suffered from the well known oil on sensor issue (sensor cleaned for free by Nikon, subsequent cleaning done by myself.)

Glen Barrington: The REAL question is when are they going to produce cameras people want to buy?

Hi happypoppeye, I would expect more F1.4 or faster primes and F2.0 or faster zooms from Olympus and Panasonic.

In reply to:

Ken Aisin: I would buy two OM-D bodies if Olympus offered more high end m3/4 zoom lenses. Say, 7-12mm F4.0, 12-35mm F2.0, 35-100mm F2.0, all splash proofed.

By the way, the prime lenses at F1.8 are just not fast enough. Cosina already proved that F0.95 lenses don't have to be huge in size.

True, but it is technically possible. I wouldn't mind the increase in size and weight either for the speed though.

Unfortunately the 9-18mm is not sealed either.

The panasonic 7-14mm is not splash proof.

In reply to:

SirSeth: Well well well. Release an amazing OMD-Pro to replace the E-5 and we'll see if I can help you recover your losses further. ;)

Such OMD Pro should be fully compatible with old 4/3 lenses to begin with.

If Olympus has no plans to update the E-5 with a new sensor, at least give 4/3 users a new m4/3 camera that would function with all their 4/3 lenses.

They did with the OMD EM5. Just not enough fast lenses for that fabulous body.

Sad to see the most innovative manufacturer (imho) doing so poorly.

Love that tiltable evf.

I don't really care about the look of cameras but this one is really good looking. Maybe Leica will add a red dot and sell it for $3500. Lol.

Ken Aisin: Great value!!! Makes me believe that there is a God afterall. I sort of lost my faith in God recently after reading about Adobe Cloud, Flickr Pro, and Leica X Vario.

Anyhow, let's stick to photography. Religions and politics shouldn't be discussed here :)

Well, I don't know about your God. My God tends to let people down 99% of the time. If it were up to me, I rather have him leave business too.

In reply to:

panos_m: I thought it would be much more expensive. I was wrong. It make a lot more sense now against a FF with a 24-70 f/2.8. It gives APS-C a big boost.

ADDED: At this price exposes other lens manufactures on their pricing policy.

Nikon and Canon, since you guys are no longer innovative with lens design, may I suggest selling D7100 and 7D with this lens as a kit. LOL.

Sigma, if you are reading, please give APS-C another big boost by announcing the 50-135 f/1.8 OS. And sell it for $899 USD or under.
