I think it's a great tool for real estate agents.
I wish Tamron made a 85mm instead of the 45mm. Hope they will release a 85mm version in the future.
Beware that the VC on/off switch and the AF/MF switch are not weather sealed.

Made in China at its best.
Ken Aisin: Thanks for the sample pics!! For the price it should come with a tripod collar though....
A side note to the manufacturers: Please consider making collars with feet that are Arca-Swiss compatible!!

Did Nikon do this on purpose to screw third party manufacturers?
Ken Aisin: It's about damn time Lightroom goes multi-threaded, and uses GPU for rendering.
I know for sure it is multi-threaded for exporting. But for all other operations, I'm doubtful.
If it truly is multi-threaded like you said, it certainly needs to be optimized.
On my machine (Intel 4790K OC'ed to 4.4GHz, Asus Sabertooth Z97 motherboard, 2x8Gb 1866 DDR3 RAM), I notice that it does use all cores at 100% only when exporting, but it does not really utilizes all cores effectively for image rendering.
The below article tested both Lr4 and Lr5, and found that "Lightroom was only using 30% to 60% of the CPU." Their test results also suggested that to speed up Lightroom, "the only thing that is going to boost speeds is a faster single core overclocked processor."

j900: I guess Adobe knows what the photographic community as a whole thinks of their subscription business model...
To each their own, but I would much rather own my tools than rent my tools.
mpgxsvcd: Canon still thinks they use better sensors.
It's almost like Canon engineers were told specifically not to improve on dynamic range....
Hey Nikon, Canon's done it. Now, where is our D400?
I'd rather go for this one plus the GoPro gimbal for $789.
Loving my Sigma 18-35mm F1.8. Waiting for Sigma to make a 50-135mm F1.8 OS.
Should bring back the OVF with F stops and shutter speed displayed on the bottom. EXR sensor instead of X-trans would be nice too.
Hope Elinchrom will come up with a TTL system too.
F**k creative cloud.... back with the non-cloud version please.
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.
