Looks nice but sadly the Nikon 70—200 f4 which I own and use can be had for cheaper and has the superlative 3rd gen VR system. I've gottrn surprisingly sharp shots handheld at 1/20 and 1/30 sec in dim light at full zoom

Alphoid: Wow! For just $600, I'll be able to get ugly photos all the way from 16mm up to 300mm for months, maybe even years, until the lens breaks!

Thanks, Tamron!

Your sarcasm is incredibly stupid, thanks!

Flying Snail: I'd rather ducktape my phone to my DSLR then use this monstrosity.

BTW: Why is this not on connect? It's phone accessory, not a camera.

What is 'duck'tape?

grafli: Well this lens is obsolet with the existence of the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8

So what are FF camera owners supposed to do since the Sigma 18-35mm is made for APS-C sized sensor cameras only. I'd like to hear your response.

88SAL: The application of this as a smart phone upgrade is irrelevant, the remote controlled compact module is what has the potential.

Exactly, that's the revolutionary aspect of this technology. Some people don't seem to get that because they only see pictures of the smartphone and lens attached to each other, and assume that's the only way it can work.

These devices, while new and prohibitively expensive for a lot of ppl, are important because they open up a lot of new photography potential, especially being able to mount and position the camera on a tripod or mini tripod in awkward locations and then control remotely UP TO 30 FT AWAY from the master control unit (smartphone) via NFC or wifi. I think a lot of ppl question the value because they don't understand these two components do not have to be in physical contact to actually work.

Miguel Rodríguez: Maybe HTC could make a good camera with android but Samsung?? forget it... they just know how to destroy an android image, make the system slow, unreliable and in general terrible, this is a failure...

Wow, exaggerate much?

Mark B.: I was curious until I saw this:
•MicroSD card slot supports up to 64GB

I don't even like SD cards because of the small size. Sure hope this won't be the future of DSLRs.

You may not like SD cards but are you expecting a camera like this to use something as large as CF?

Craig from Nevada: The pricing of the E-M5 was really a pleasant surprise. A heck of deal.

The pricing of this camera had the opposite effect. I am disappointed

Sorry what is 'value' to you peevee1? I think most people define value as 'getting the most for what they can afford'. I could afford the OM-D and felt like I got quite a bit for the price, so to me, the value is good. Was it cheap to me? Of course not, $1K is still a lot of money no matter how much a person earns. Are you using the word 'value' in the place of 'affordability' because I don't think the two should be interchangeable.

highwave: Baaaah

This camera is growing on me more and more every time I look at it.

Darn you Olympus, did you have to go and make such a pretty Camera? don't you understand a lot of us need to save money? Even the white version glitters like it's made out of pearls or something. And I'm a guy!

Thank God, they omitted the EVF, else my bank account would be taking a blow.

Yet who knows. Maybe if it drops a lot in the next few months, and my used OM-D doesn't suffer so bad on the used market, I might even go for it. I like the EVF but I think I can live without it.

I wouldn't trade my OM-D either, but if it were to get stolen/damaged beyond repair, then this EP-5 looks to be an excellent replacement camera to use with my still existing MFT lens collection

It seems pretty clear Nikon intends this camera to be the top segment DX camera which probably means you're right, NO D400

Math is wrong on the 42.5 caption, should be an 85mm f 2.4 equivalent

In reply to:

Retzius: I'm hoping that in a year or so the D600 will be down to $1500 or so body only so I can pick one up. My guess is that when the Canon 6D arrives, Nikon will discount the D600 to keep it the more attractive option and to gain market share.

Why do internet fans have these warped ideas that a manufacturer would drop the price of a well selling camera body $600 within a year of its release just because 'thats what they want'. Reality check, please

blank_: I always admired nikon for not crippling the AF, but I guess it was necessary this time.

Nice attempt at trolling. The AF system works fine, better than the D7000 version

Clint Thayer: Please stop with the previews. Just wait until you are done with it, and publish. We can wait.

Please do not tell them how to do their job. Some of us value that they put out an early preview before the full review. If you care so much, please run the site yourself

In reply to:

Barry Fitzgerald: It's basically a warmed over D5100 which has a poor 0.78x viewfinder, no Auto FP, no wireless flash, no DOF preview. They shoved the questionable AF system from the D7k in there (how you fit 39 dots in a tiny viewfinder is going to be fun) and a 24mp sensor and beefed up the fps a little.

Still no hard buttons for ISO and WB..shame Nikon are really lagging on basic functionality.

Yes Barry, this your opportunity to shine and create that perfect camera to sell and enlighten the ignorant masses. Step to it!

OOPSOS: Have I read it right or my poor vision/english?. The tripod ring mount = $224 extra?

At the same time, many 3rd party manufacturers much made cheaper and more appropriately priced tripod rings. It's not some complex machinery that is difficult to reproduce. I wouldn't give two cares about Nikon's exorbitant price as I'll just wait for the $30 version to come from China.
