Yomama: To be honest, The short flange focal distance of the nex is what makes it so difficult for them to produce decent fixed primes that are not bigger/longer then it needs . It's pure physics, small body (with short FD)=bigger lenses (NEX), normal body (with normal FD)=normal lenses (Fuji & Samsung), and big body (with long FD)=small lenses (Pentax).

The market is longing for faster pancake lenses with high IQ..... Sony will have a hard time doing so. M43 seems to be hitting the sweet spot with the size of the body and collection of lenses. I also think Pentax K-01 will do a lot better than we think.

Please do the math of adding up the lenses length of Sony's 16mm (23mm), 24mm (66mm) & 50mm (62mm) and compare to Pentax's 21mm (25mm), 40mm (15mm), 70mm Ltd (26mm)........ Ouch Sony. Ouch

If you consider a complete camera's system with wide-angle and super-tele (for birdwatching) can you decide wich Flange Focal Distance versus Sensor's Diagonal is better in order to have a light and however good quality system?
On my advise Nikon 1 system can be, because it has a big sensor (versus 1/2.3" sensor or 2/3" sensor) with a 15.86 mm Diagonal and a big Flange Focal Distance (17 mm).
What do you think?

The flange focal distance of the Nikon 1 series is 17 mm.
The sensor is 13.2 x 8.8 mm.
Very good, im my opinion, for a compact lens system.
The flange focal distance of the 4/3 system is 38.67 better than micro 4/3 (19.25 mm).

Thudd: Typical, that with the D800E they *remove* something, and charge more.

(yes, I know it's not quite as simple as that, but still)

D800E has two optical low pass filters to prevent luminescent aliasing (one of them is a SPECIAL filter).

Sigma SD1 no AA filter
Leica M9 no AA filter
Nikon D800E no AA filter.
Is it the right way?

cesaregal: My experience with the D700:
a) no noise until 3200 ISO (very good on sunset's lights)
b) very good large prints with high resolution lens (as 50/1.4G)
c) excellent portraits with 85/1.8 lens.
I don't need better Nikon's cameras.
I need other Nikon's lens (300/4G, 400/4G).

I'm waiting for 300mm f/4G VRII.
With TC14 I'll have a 400 f/5.6.
But with a 400mm f/4G VRII lens
probably I would have better results
than a 300+TC1.4 or a 200-400.

In my opinion HDR softwares alter real relation among lights.
Let Photojournalism stay real!

cesaregal: I'd like better:
a) sensor bigger (2/3" with crop factor 4x)
b) min 6 Megapixel, max 8 Megapixels
c) zoom 14x (28-400mm equiv.) fast as possible
d) RAW.
Bigger pixel's size -> better dynamic range.
For birdwatchers too.

I'm a birdwatcher (Nikon DSRL FF and Sigma lens). I'm looking for a second camera for long walks in the mountain. Nikon could follow the way of high-end bridge camera with 1" CX sensor but a lens 14x/15x for 1" sensor would be big and expensive probably. Then we must wait for long Nikon lens (400-500mm equiv.) if planned for V1. The P5100 can be useful but, I'm afraid, the sensor is too small for my requirements.

cesaregal: I wanted from Lumix superzoom with:
1) sensor 4/3
2) RAW
3) LEICA lens f/2.8

Then Nikon looked far choosing for the 1 series a size (13,2x8,8mm) between 1/2.33 (6,08x4,56mm) and Four Thirds (17,3x13mm).
Better compromise perhaps to have a good image quality and little camera/lens size.

You're right. The weight of the lens Olympus 300 mm/2.8 (600 mm:35 mm equivalent) for Four Thirds is 3,3 kg. Then I ask if a range 14-200 f/3.5 (28-400 : 35 mm equivalent) could be affordable for a superzoom Four Thirds. If not the solution for a better quality in my opinion is Four Thirds system with interchangeable lens.

I think it's a pocketable camera for the birdwatcher. I've seen excellent bird's photo taken with a 1/2.3 sensor FUJI HS10.

cesaregal: I've resized one photo and AfterShot has resized the original RAW too!
Is it possible maintain the original RAW completely?
AfterShot is easy and intelligible, but I need maintain the original RAW and the original JPG.
Perhaps I don't know well the program.
Have you experience in that?

Really the original RAW is maintained.
Excuse me for the incorrect post.
I confirm that the program is easy and intellegible.
