DenWil: Another opportunity for responses from small, old or infirm people, for whom 1.9 pounds is big and heavy and who take every feature omission (by their standards) as a personal affront.

It's so tiring to try to have a constructive discussion when there's a troll calling people names, and believing that with such (poor) manner his point will be stronger. Ah, the internet... the perfect hideout for the cowards and the poor-minded.

Once and for all, to conclude my point; I believe it's about time Nikon (that I have used for more than 20 years, but now I moved to the Sony A7 line 2 years ago) would make a great mirrorless camera. Because - without a doubt - this is the future. Just as digital was the future of film. They're so much more compact, with less (vibrating) mechanics in movement. Their improvements are spectacular and It's just a matter of (little) time now before they surpass mirror cameras also in terms of speed.
Nikon didn't even engage into this path. This is what my comment is about. It's a wake-up call.

Maurizio Mancioli: Wow, amazing, another DX camera from Nikon. What's the point? This is obsolete technology...

If my point is irrelevant or dumb, why so many replies and discussions?

The future is mirrorless. Even commercial photographers are tired to look like dorks with their huge gear. Nikon has been a follower for too long in the digital era. What are they waiting for to launch a line of killer mirrorless cameras? This is my point when is I say "what's the point of launching another DX camera".

On Connect post Vertu Signature Touch comes with Hasselblad-certified camera (103 comments in total)

A question for DP Review: since you are THE major player in reviewing digital cameras, is this feedback from the public used by camera manufacturers? Is Hasselblad paying attention? And if they do, do they have something to say about their obstination in pursuing a strategy that will most certainly result in staining their legacy?

Maurizio Mancioli: Mobile photography is undeniably important, and it should be more and more examined, but this lady's comments are poor. They didn't deserve such visibility in DPreview's site.

Sorry about the lady, got confused...
-50 reasons is asking a bit too much from the reader's patience, the good ones end up "buried" in the weaker ones.
-Too partial. You cannot declare that there are no good selfies. There are some great ones. Some artists just work with that.

My ideal camera wouldn't be something very utopic. It could be a "Pro" version of the sony NEX-7 (NEX-P?), with more traditional, dedicated controls, and a whole bunch of brighter and compact (f/1.4) prime lenses (Leica M-style), as well as 28-70 and 70-200 (equiv.) f/2.8 zooms.

I would never, ever expect such a mistake in all senses from Hasselblad. While I understand their wish to conquer new markets capitalizing on their brand's name, this postioning strategy (disguising a NEX-7) is very very poor. The design is hideous. The original NEX-7 is much more sober, "honest" and pro-looking. The public they're aiming with such a price tag is not a fool !!

Maurizio Mancioli: If photography is viewed as art, the way you "get there" doesn't matter. It is the power of the work itself that will. Its capacity of "taking you places", of instigating you.
With the growing amount of available tools (Photoshop, Instagram), so grew possible "shortcuts" to reach interesting results is there. But in the wrong hands, all these possibilities will only be a tiring excess of effects.

Again, I don't think it matters. Unless you are a commercial, documentary or journalistic photographer, the type of camera, or sharpness is not necessarily an issue. As an artist, I have shown photos in exhibitions shot both DSLR and phone cameras. Phones sometimes are great, because it's the only camera you have with you... and you'll have to squeeze the max in terms of composition and poetics out of it.
I would say that in fact, once you reach o certain ability, you can get incredibly artisitic pictures with ANY camera. Search for a friend of mine, Bico Stupacoff. He's a professional photographer who shoots for all the main magazines (Vogue, Playboy) only with an iPhone.
