Mssimo: I bet this is better than the nikon 35mm f1.4 but even the samyang is better than it.
"Nikon is a nice lens...but its not a $1700 lens."
Are you referring to the 35 or 24mm 1.4?
drent: Keypad for iPad. Almost for free. Make your own shortcuts. Great app. I use it for FCP too.
Do you have a link for that App?
I found this one:
The back of the 6D picture above appears to have a couple of strips of spare electrical tape coming from the side of the camera. Good heads up thinking by Canon to plan ahead.

@beautyintheeyes- that's too funny.
puneetvikramsingh: Nikon D7000 discontinued (Indian online store giant lists it discontinued), D600 way too expensive, cant afford D800....i think i should convert myself to canon ;(
A discontinued D7000 might be an indicator that the APS-C D400 is coming. Or more likely D7100 with the D3200 chip.
Looks like it didn't get the PC and 10 pin connectors from the D300/700/800.
Fantastic! I was considering a used D700 as a second body to my D800. This is just in time.
Thomas Kachadurian: It has always struck me that Canon puts much too high a price on their TS-E 24 because they can.
Given it doesn't have to have fast AF or a compact size, or even electric contacts, I see no reason why Samyang--based on the lenses I have of theirs--can't be every bit as good as Canon L. It even has a red ring!
I'll buy one if it's under $1000 before the reviews are even out.
Re: The lens rental recommendation with the PC; tilt shift in DX mode is better than no tilt shift at all.
ybizzle: Great update NIKON but I feel that the Fuji X10 is still the better camera in this segment. As for Sony, sure the RX100 has the larger sensor, but it has a slower lens at the long end, no OVF, no hot shoe, and lacks the solid construction and retro looks of the X10.
I agree with ybizzle. I'm a die hard Nikon user for 15+ yrs and I seriously considered the 7000 and 7100 for my wife but ended up getting the x10 instead. And this was pre Orbgate. I haven't regretted it. The 7700 would've made it a much harder decision but in the end the larger sensor, zooming with a ring on the lens rather than a thumb switch and the equally fast lens gives the x10 the advantage.
Hopefully this will be the beginning of the end to overbaked HDR.
Edgar_in_Indy: 35-->28mm for $350? Umm...yay?
Yeah I know what you mean. I realize this is an oversimplification that ignores the artistic expression but $350 for 7mm seems a bit much.
Ashley Pomeroy: Cor, shades of the old Kodak DCS 760M, which was roughly the same price (but this was back in 2001). I've always wondered how practical it is to launch a monochrome SLR in limited quantities - presumably, given the difficulty Nikon has with the 800E, it's not a simple matter. I suspect in this days of 34mp colour sensors you don't really gain much from cutting out the demosaicing. And presumably the output from a Foveon sensor, converted to monochrome, would be much the same. And of course for less money you could buy a used Rolleflex f/2.8 and a lot of film.
Ashley, what difficulty with the D800E are you speaking of?
Albino_BlacMan: Now how does this work? Does everyone get a new camera for free? Can you send you camera in to have the sensor swapped for free? Or are the "beta testers" SOL and forced to pay for the new sensor?
The replacements are due to start this May not March.
arhmatic: Why is all about detail, detail, detail?When it comes to video, I just cannot care less.
Umm if you don't care about detail then why bother with HD? Got SVHS? That'll get rid of all the unessecary detail.
DioCanon: One thing only is sure:
he would have had even better quality with a Canon lens on!
I agree with @marike6. I sold a 15yr old Nikor mount Sigma 28-70 2.8 EX lens for just about what I paid for it. The guy bought it because it had a mechanical aperture. And, he wasn't even mounting it directly to the camera but was using some sort of 3rd party coupling thing that film makers use?!? I was thrilled, It allowed me to buy a 1.4 50mm lens.
philo123: Not the camera for me. Too niche and no good for sports and wildlife with only 4fps. Canon 5DMkIII wins hands down as the better all round general camera.
@philo123, "better all around"? If the 14 extra megapixels doesn't matter to you, then the 7 less megapixels of the D800s 6fps crop size shouldn't matter either. The D800 is like a Pentax 645D and a Canon 7d in one camera. While the 5d3 is like, well the 5d2 with the autofocus system of a 5 year old D300.
Why isn't the iso listed?
Was there a mention of the release date. Or an educated guess based on past experience?
