OldArrow: There is an important element which is hard to find in the test reviews, and I think it might be important to know: the shutter lag. For people taking action shots this will be a valuable information, since some cameras, otherwise impressive in specs, take simply too long to execute.
I don't think SLR cameras have any lag worth speaking of.
Tord S Eriksson: This is a camera of my taste: Not too costly, not too bulky, and yet a glorious full-format sensor! Bravo, Nikon!
Just wish Pentax would make a similar camera, grumble!
Sorry, but I don't understand. If this is YOUR camera, why not just get it? I myself like the K5 and I'm not waiting for Nikon to make it. I just bought the camera a year ago.
Lenses can always be sold. Anyway, I'm quite sure Pentax will end up making a FF camera if these cameras are successful.
I must say I like this photo very much. One of the best I've seen in ages.
Seems to me like the camera many on these forums have been dreaming of for years. The only drawback I can see is that it's expensive; if they could manage to bring the price down, I think this camera could be a winner.
I'm very glad EVF are getting better, but nonetheless the day the OVF disappears will indeed be a sad day for me.

Nice article. Shows that photography can be one of the arts. Of course there will always be those that despise anything that is not "forensic" photography. But in reality, a photograph is always a manipulation. Just by choosing to take or not a shot, you are already manipulating reality. So why shouldn't people investigate new ways of expression.
Why should altering the DOF be fine and even desirable, but the use of textures not? And I could go on and on about all the manipulation that goes on in what some may consider "normal" photography.
It's just another thing you can do, of many. No need to get uptight about it. Don't like it, don't do it! But what gives some people the right to decide what is permitted to be called photography? Also if you read the article carefully, one realizes that it's pure photography, even from a strict academical position.
So let's see. We are paying a lot of money for a quality lens. But then for X Y Z excuses we are going to get an inferior lens? EXCUSE ME! What a load of bull! So typical of nowadays! If you are charging a wonderful price for a wonderful lens, I expect your lens to be wonderful.
But no, we should pay for full quality, when manufacturers to save costs move over to cheaper countries with cheaper workforce and lower quality checks, leaving a lot of people unemployed.
But we should understand? Well no, sorry. F U . Not only we don't understand, we don't want to. And we will not.
If a product is sold saying it ill meet certain standards it should. The rest is a load of lame excuses, and if you ask me, a fraud.
Have a nice day!
