So can Adobe kill the licensing server for CS6 and force everyone to the cloud version?

Nice retro styling. I'm hoping that Olympus allows for remote control of the camera via wifi and a smartphone app. The Panasonic GF6 has an app for it and it opens up new ways to use your camera. Check out the review at http://www.ephotozine.com/article/panasonic-lumix-gf6-review-21873

D1N0: seems to be getting chunkier

Which is not a bad thing. The OM-D E-M5 is a bit too thin without the optional grip. A little bit thicker would help a lot.

nkarasev: I think canon misses the whole point of small cameras with this one: small camera needs small lens. As in "pancake". Not zoom, that outweighs and outsizes the camera itself.
Ok, one might get pancake to put onto that camera, but seriously, how many buyers does canon expect for this super-budget minded camera and a pancake?
Most users will get the camera and kit zoom which already misses the point of buying camera this small, and no additional lenses!

Nik

Exactly. Your average consumer will NOT buy a pancake lens. They will want a zoom lens. Either they'll get one with a kit or use one they already own. Suddenly the Canon SL1 is back to bulky.

Wow. Looks like the GH3 is using the same sensor as the OM-D E-M5.

About time they brought RAW to this camera. Now it competes directly with the Canon S95, S100, S110 etc.

Just noticed the specs say no image stabilization?

Deleted-pending: 1100$?

A D5100 + 28mm 1.8G costs less, for 2 extra stops of light ! This makes it a perfect street photog combo, a 18.5mm 2.8 is nice but way to wide, even on DX !

I bet we'd need to wait 2 more years for it to integrate a bright zoom lens

and the D5100 fits neatly in your pocket!

Wow. This segment is getting interesting!

It's cheaper than a Leica!

MGJA: Back when Sigma introduced the Extra Special Delux Rainforest Grip with Burly Burl for Pimp McDaddy Edition of their latest, insanely overpriced for what it was, DSLR, I thought I've seen it all.

But Hasselblad goes one better. This is both hideous, tasteless and instantly brands the putative owner as an arrivista parvenu.

No...you got it wrong. Sigma released the SD1 thinking they could convince people it was the same as a medium format camera and pay $10k then $6.8k for it. After a year they sold 2 bodies and so they had to drop the price to encourage more sales. To save face they had to come up with a story. That story was that they managed to cut the manufacturing cost of the sensor by over 66%...a world record. But of course the real story was they got greedy and it didn't work. Sigma fans are so gullible...they'll believe anything...

Innovation from Nikon...what a strange concept!

Finally! A camera for seniors! I probably get this for my Mom. I've always been looking for a simple camera with few buttons.

Randy Benter: There is no mention of fixing the 20mm lens issue. That is disappointing. I won’t buy this camera if it doesn’t work with my favorite m4/3 lens.

"Firmware v1.2 promises to improve the camera's performance at re-waking from sleep mode". I think this will fix the issue. It's not isolated to the the 20mm lens. Others have had problems with other lenses too.

neo_nights: Sigma is the new Leica now? (amazing and overpriced cameras)

No...not quite like a Leica. Sigma is just over-priced cameras with a lot of negatives.

Direct link | Posted on Jun 29, 2012 at 20:13 UTC

Once again. Sigma preys on the gullible Sigma fanatics who will pay almost any price for the "foveon" look.

So this camera has one thing going for it. Resolution...and only at ISO 400 or lower. The colors are way off (must be the "Foveon" look). AF isn't that great. Slow write speeds. Too many negatives. It wasn't worth $10K...$6.9K...nor the current $2.3K. It should be priced at $1100.

They can afford to do this because...frankly, very few bought the body at $10k or $6.9k.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems that the D3s goes toe to toe and in some cases beats the D4.
