Mssimo: No phone camera of the year?
Exactly, considering DPR's effort to promote DPR Connect and mobile phone photography.
Sony fans, vote! It is your duty!
bluevellet: I've considered the Pentax 645Z. I think Pentax did a great job making the price reasonable (for medium format) and coming up with a decent amount of lenses, particularly how niche this product is,
One major hurdle is (almost) no retailer presence. Even online, it's hard to find and I have to go abroad for it. I'm not comfortable buying something this expensive without even a test drive.
I mean, just look at DPR, no link to buy it anywhere.
It is sold out everywhere
ARB1: May be time to sell my D800 with all its lenses.
Do go to a shop to check if you like EVF and how the camera is handled.
Call me greedy, imagine a new A7s plus IBIS.
Many legacy lenses are becoming even more expensive. Not good...
Only 5 g gold has been used.
Looks better than the silver version
remind me of first generation IMac
Mario Brothers' camera
The joke about 'asking the engineers' isn't appropriate and funny at all. If I worked for Canon as an engineer, I would be upset to know that.
I would probably try to send a CV to Nikon.......
Okay probably Fuji then
Quite a revelation that mirrorless camera market does not need Canon and Nikon to generate more interest.
If Canon and Nikon still don't take this market seriously, then they will eventually pay a price.
To compete with FF, they should try to make f1.8 zoom lenses like Sigma did.
RStyga: As much as I like Sigma, they need to drop this Quattro-design fiasco A-S-A-P before they surpass the SD1 original release-price fiasco. WHAT ON EARTH did the designers think when creating the Quattro??? IT IS ugly, IT IS grossly not ergonomic, IT IS not compact in any conceivable way!!! There is nothing positive to this design at all. Sigma wake up...
I would like to hold one before making any conclusions.
It looks quite different as a camera, doesn't it?
Nikon is surely winning the competition by introducing 6th FF camera.
Feel sorry for Canon
Marty4650: This is an interesting camera.
For exactly $100 less than an A6000, you can buy an A5100 and lose your EVF, lose your hot shoe, have a continuious shooting rate half as fast, and end up with a less powerful flash. But at least you would pick up a touch LCD screen.
Who would give up all that to save $100?
Sony already has the A3000 for the budget customer, and it represents an incredible value.
Unless the A5100 is deeply discounted, it should help sell a lot more A6000s. There is simply too much missing for the $100 savings.
I take photos using legacy lenses at the waist level. I have no needs for anything extra a6000 offers.
The question is : who is the cheeky monkey in this story? :)
nikon power: Don't let the price scare you.Nikon's shutter durability is 200,000 cycles.$3,299/200,000 = 1.6 cent per picture.Other branded cameras' durability cycle may be the same or less but the EXIF from their photos won't show NIKON, the King of high end DSLR.
Photos say more about the quality, not the EXIF
I was a little disappointed to read a piece of rumor about a Panasonic camera a while ago, which was copy and paste from a Hongkong socialite's blog.
Now this unboxing article is even better as DPR jump on the bandwagon mocking Leica.
DPR is certainly changing. Let's hope it is for better in a long run.
