Francis Carver: The world is increasingly led from Korea now. Once it was Europe, and then Japan. Now, Korea. Without Korean innovators, we would be paying $5,000 for a 50mm/F1/8 Carl Zeiss glass probably. Thanks, Samyang!

I like cheapo lenses, cheapo smartphones and gangnam style, but I think that's about it with korean influence.

PhotoKhan: Hmmm...not very impressed. Strange colors and quite "flat".

Nikon jpegs are notoriously dull, unless customised otherwise. You should really be looking at raw files, as soon as they become available.

ulfie: Hmm... even viewing enlargements of the "Original" images, they don't seem light years better than m4/3s, e.g., Oly OM-D EM-5 can do nowadays. Some of these nighttime, high-ISO shots too are very chroma blurred, again not all that different than m4/3s or ASP-C.

Did you ever consider the fact that these might be jpegs with in-camera noise reduction ?

Nikon Raw files are far better than jpegs.

kewlguy: Good body/sensor combination but looks flat to me. Poor lens?

Can you spell "j p e g" ?

maniax: in the past 100 iso/asa was considered fast. Yet, beautiful pictures were made by famous photographers. Nowadays people just care how it performs on 6400 iso or higher.
You think you can shoot better pictures if you have 256000 iso grainless?

I'm sure its a very nice camera in all aspects, its just that for me a camera that limits you makes me more creative.

Good for you. I shoot in dimly lit venues and I need the ISO.

FTW: I ow a D40, D200, Fuji S5 and a NEX-7, among other dusty things in my shelves and, if I compare, there is really nothing to be exited about. So, in exception of a lot of noise and a waste of money this D600, sames as Alpha 99 will not make your day, as I can find out by myself. I downed other samples form other sites, including Nikon, there was nothing that made my wallet jump out of my pocket. I am not religious, i compare what is comparable.

What are you on about ? You allready own 3 DSLR's and one high end mirorless and you are considering investing another 2 grand in a DSLR ?

Good IQ, even in low light.

gdfthr73: Looks Like a great camera but why 1/4000 max shutter speed? Forget about using fast glass outdoors without an Nd filter i guess. Pretty sure 1/4000 is still fast enough to stop most action though.

It has ISO50 and the base ISO is 100. The D700 has ISO 100 and the base ISO is 200. So the 1/8000 in the D700 is 1/4000 in the D600. If you look at it this way, it's not so bad anymore.

NickBPhotography: I've placed my order. Its still not quite the camera my D700 was, but neither was the D800. Full viewfinder coverage, video, and 24mp are welcome additions. For me, the loss of fine adjustment of autofocus is a real backward move as that has proved invaluable on my 50mm F/1.4. Still, I've ordered it!

It has the AF adjustment. Read the specs on nikon.com

It's going to sell liike crazy, this camera. It's what everyone was asking for, for a long time. I know it has it's drawbacks, but it's 2000$ launch price people !! It has a 24 MP full-frame sensor for Christ sake ! It has a viewfinder with glass in it, unlike the A99, and you have access to all the nikon glass out there.

I own 2 nikon lenses and none required calibration or AF adjustment on my D700. And guess what, I also on two sigma lenses that did not need that either.

I think it's a great launch and I will probably get one next year. Hope the AF won't be a messi bussiness, like it was in the D7000 and D800.

Why do you complain about 1/4000 shutter speed ? The D700 is 1/8000 but the minimal ISO is 200 and 100 with boost. This one has 100 and 50 with boost, so it's the same thing as the D700.

On Sony announces Alpha SLT-A99 24MP full-frame camera article (92 comments in total)
In reply to:

nicolaiecostel: Why did they make it SLT ? How do sony people clean that mirror ? I can't imagine working with a camera like this at slow apertures. Is the dust a problem for those switching lenses frequently ?

A slow aperture shows the dust, a fast one does not. Same dust is invisible at f/2.8 and very visible at f8. And I seem to get much more dust on the mirror than on my sensor, swapping my primes outside.

Also, cleaning the sensor is one thing, cleaning a delicate mirror is another. In theory at least, that is why I asked those questions, hoping that a SLT user would fill me in. Cheers.

I see the glass elements as small, why is the barrel that large for the lens ? And why does it say "35 mm full frame CMOS sensor" on the orange ring, aren't the crazy people spending 2800 on a fixed lens camera going to know that ?

Ronj2: That grip looks way too big for the camera and does not seem to fit well. Otherwise nice looking camera.

No, it's called: "the grip makes the camera look ridiculous".

nicolaiecostel: Wow, talk about deja-vu. It feels like 2010 all over again. Basicly, same sensor, same build, same IQ, same everything, except for some claims on a new AF (oh dear, pentax AF..). People are dreaming at a D800, 5Dmk3, a FF mirorless, a FF affordable camera (rumored D600), and Pentax-Ricoh re-release the K5...

Whatever dude. Read my initial post, not the replies to senn_b's post. I didn't came here to start a flame between brands (not that it would be one to start, let's face it), I was just making a comment on the idleness of the developement for this model. Just be happy with what you have, I know I am. Cheers.

I don't know, because you can have the things that you are dreaming of. And shallower depth of field, and fast prime lenses, and proper focal length, more detail, higher ISO and so on.

Direct link | Posted on Sep 11, 2012 at 13:16 UTC

So Pentax finally dropped the ball and introduced in-lens stabilisation. Oh dear, I can still hear fanboys explaining how much better it is to have sensor IS vs. lens IS.

In reply to:

IcyVeins: focal length: too wide.
Aperture: not wide enough.

This camera is dead on arrival.

Who's Merrill anyway. If you want to name the camera after someone try Ansel Adams or Peter Lik or one of those guys.

I am in photography for 5 years now, avid reader, and I have never heard of Peter Lik.

P.S. I have just checked him out, there is a good reason I haven't heard of him, his work is average, at best. No reason to put his name next to one of the classic masters.
