nice. I'm still keeping the V1 just for the wideangle lens though, but this looks amazing.

good move from ricoh, but too late for me. I wish pentax had this lens year ago.

In reply to:

cgarrard: Ricoh undoubtedly beat all other makers in terms of adding features through firmware. Gosh I love this company.

no doubt about that. I wish nikon did the same with nikon 1.

RobG67: This is not a Nikonos. Not even close. I have a V1, and it's a great little camera and a useful adjunct to my D700s, but daring to compare this half-hearted attempt at an underwater camera to a Nikonos is tantamount to heresy. Wash your mouth out with silicone grease, you silly person, you.

try to use flash on this one

vroger1: Check Voightlander's (Cosina) pricing for a similar lens that should give you an idea. With the "Leica" brand it will probably be more than a bit more. The 25mm 1.4 is $600. This should at least be double.

considering that nikkor 32/1.2 is $900 and this is Leica + OS, $1200 sounds even optimistic.

In reply to:

PaulSnowcat: I cannot understand... Nikon 1 gives much better quality with the same price and size... Why bother buying Pentax Q?

thanks to very big flange distance, the nikon 1 lenses are not that small, as you would expect given the sensor size.

Nikon interface and controls are lame, but they have some nice lenses + it seems, there will be a macro and another fast prime in recent future, while pentax Q lens lineup is lacking in many areas and there are no signs of anything new for a long time now.

nice camera with good enough image quality, but it just makes no sense for me with current lens lineup.

compacts with same sensor size have f1.4-2.8 zooms these days, so I believe pentax can do better than 2.8-4.5 for standard zoom and I don't think that primes should be slower than f1.4 except some wideangles and long telephoto.

any info about size and weight?

In reply to:

panos_m: A question about the price. At 30-35mm and f/1.2 is there anything cheaper independent of format?

depends, how you look at it.. since it's the only one, it's both cheapest and most expensive.

the lack of competition always means one thing - extra $. Fortunately there is a at least competition from other systems and if a poirtrait prime is what you want, suddenly m4/3 with 45/1.8 makes much more sense.

In reply to:

marike6: Finally a manual focus Nikon 1 lens, and M/A to boot. Nice.

An f1.4 portrait lens at half the price would have been nice, but prices should fall.

It does look kind of bad-ash on the V2, hopefully it's as sharp as the 18.5 1.8 is wide open.

agreed. The focus ring is nice - I thought it's fake like on 18/1.8 first.

In reply to:

kadardr: The only question: why no IS? Otherwise I am a buyer.

that is the last think I would want from f1.2 lens (especially not for poirtraiture, where you're more likely to be limited by subject movement) Not to mention it would add size, cost and it's very hard to implement, when the aperture is so fast. I guess $900 seems too cheap for you :)

I dont get the size - zeiss website says 86 /81 (with caps?) , but when pictured with the camera it looks smaller to me.

full frame Zeiss 18/3,5 designed around bigger sensor and much longer flange distance has about the same lenght - I think these should be much smaller to go with compact camera concept

nice camera, but needs some (wide) compact ef-s primes to make sense

In reply to:

Mister J: Like the weight trim and touch screen.

But no articulated screen - shame.

but that's why they could make the mody thinner. I'd drop the flash too, but obviously majority wants it.

I really like the concept.

this camera would be a nice complement to my 5D, shame there are no compact wide angle ef-s prime lenses

Direct link | Posted on Mar 21, 2013 at 09:41 UTC

if there was a FF sensor, no flash and it wasn't so ugly, I might be interested.

every J1/2/3 owner, who knows photography basics, must feel sad looking at coolpix A top and back controls and then looking back at his camera

In reply to:

Greg Gebhardt: I had the Sony RX and I am NOT buying a fixed lens compact! PERIOD!

agreed. (after using GRD and DP1)

it will be a great camera for those, who can live with fixed 28mm, but I'd go with a system camera anytime

In reply to:

evoprox: What the NEX system needs IMO are fast, high-quality lenses, not more bodies.

true, but it's nice that they made the body smaller this time. I wish they go for even more compact body in rx1/100 style.

In reply to:

InTheMist: The compressed focusing coverage on both the 6D and D600 put me off.

Am I alone?

same for me. Other than that the camera would be perfect for my needs, but without the improvement in AF coverage, I'll keep the 5d mkI for few more years. I also wish they keep the joystick.

edit: the smaller size in nice though, if I had nothing to shoot with, I'd be torn between this and used 5d mkII
