Oh boy oh boy yet another craprastic digicam !!
No mention of the light leak and black tape fix ? Seems like a major negative.
Yawn another digicam
I will NEVER buy a D800
And furthermore, the cameras are just too damn complicated. More like a computer with a lens attached. Give me simplicity, I just bought a Mamiya RZ67 Pro Ii D and three lenses for not much more than a D800 costs.
Frankly I'm not that impressed with the sample. Disclosure: I've shot medium format digital (Aptus 75S) for four years.
It's a very handsome camera. I could see having one as a very portable supplement to my Contax 645/Leaf Aptus 75S kit. Same 3:4 aspect too.
What keeps me from buying a DSLR to accomplish that is 1) they are too big 2) too expensive 3) need to buy lenses.
Why would anyone want a POS like this?
fillkay: Really interesting camera but what a scandalous price! For our US cousins, the dollar equivalent in the UK is $692!! Even without VAT it works out at $577 - 34% more. How can this be justified? Even Europe is expensive at $619, or $515 less a notional 20% tax. How come we supply all the profit for Canon?
But can it make phone calls, surf the web, send SMS messages and email ? Gimme an iPhone 4S instead.
