Any soap company is going to sue Nikon?

Nukunukoo: With everything said, now's the best time to look for bargain D600s. Never had problems with mine, and we are in dire need for another FF.

Good luck

Anadrol: @yabokkie I think everyone here is sick of your trolling.

I was going to ask him to give us a list of camera gear he has, so we could have a trolling-festival together...

On Sony A3000 preview (678 comments in total)

The E-mount kit lens 18-55 looks more balanced on this body. Also the newly announced 18-105 or old 18-200 lenses should also feel better on this type of body.

On Sony reveals AA-filter-less Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R news story (66 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rod McD: Sony, as impressive as the RX1 & RX1R are, please give us what everyone is actually waiting for - the interchangeable lens version. One FL is too limiting for most photographers. Please give us a scaled up FF NEX with a built-in EVF, external controls, and a suite of matched primes. I'm thinking 24/2.8, 35/2, 50/1.4 and 90/2.8 - modest speeds to keep them small and light. Best available AF. Environmentally sealed. No dearer than a D600. They'd sell. Thank you.

I wish Sony is my Santa baby...

tbower: Someone explain to me the attraction of a camera with a fixed lens....I personally couldn't live with it, especially when it costs nearly USD1,000.

try it, or try to go out with one prime lens on your existing camera. Try to use your feet and see how you feel. I am sure you 'could live with it'...

3dreal: Why sony-alpha? Because sigma seems to build sony-lenses for sony(the company).

It is fine to have such a speedy lens. But when it comes to quality then the new zeiss will beat them all. Distagon 55/1.4 to be the first, at 3000 euro for each of them.

You bought shares from ZEISS?

This lens is going to hurt the sales of lenses such as Nikon 17-55, that is more expensive, almost as heavy and slower.

In reply to:

mrmut: Acceptable price for a great lens.

When they published specifications of this lens, that was the reason for me to start thinking about system change. Somewhere in that time Canon also announced their small and light camera, so there two would be paired beautifully.

Summi is right. You may find the front is too heavy and unbalanced. 800 gram is not light!

AdamT: Ripping off the UK as usual . Tax is only a fraction of the difference the rate is 1.56 Dollars to the Pound - that means the lens should be £512 + Tax + Import duty , about £650 not £800 Greedy Barstards

First complaint of the day! :P

But I agree with your entirely

In reply to:

The Lotus Eater: The Sigma 30mm f/2.8 EX DN for my NEX was the best £99 I ever spent.

This new Sigma 18-35mm could equal that, albeit at significantly higher cost, as I'd barely ever change lenses.

BTW, I wonder how much this lens will be in the UK. $799 is £510, right Sigma?! ;)

no... it is £800 ...

I am still waiting for someone to say he likes it and he is going to buy it now... it is not you it seems...

ohh.. don't start... some people don't want to hear this. Nikon 1 lens is the future after all...

Nikon never committed itself to develop DX lenses. Good lens this may be but the choice of the sensor size is always less ideal than its competitors'.
