Samsung... they know how to make a gadget with a pile of features... but that's it, just gadget. My Galaxy Note with its yellowish display and bad ergonomics is a proof to that...LOL

On Nikon D600 Hands-on Preview preview (713 comments in total)

If compared to 5D2, D600 looks softer - BUT D600 has excellent high ISO!

Phileas Fogg: Those here who troll to bash Leica have likely never shot a Leica camera. Many probably do not know how to shoot photography other than "P" for perfect mode anyways. They likely will never be able to afford one as they fail to grasp the value of what decades of Leica quality and manufacturing have brought.

The bashers only see what Leica does not give you as compared to the more typical and often gimmick loaded DSLR's or other digital cameras. The absence of some of these things and gimmicks is what makes a Leica endearing to true photographic shooters.

These bashers have likely never shot a true rangefinder let alone a Leica be it a 35mm film body or a digital. They are folks that would not understand the value of prestige and what superlative manufacturing quality brings.

No I do not own a Leica never have shot one but if I had the disposable cash at hand to buy a Leica M series I would and both a film body as well as the digital one here.

LOL no need for that...

Even worse, the bashers never got to see the results or what the M9 and leica lenses can do. Sure high iso is not as good as CMOS, but at base iso, nothing is even close.

JEROME NOLAS: I don't have Leica and probably never have one, but still don't understand all that complaints...there are million things on this planet that are million times more expensive...if you complain it's not for you, if you have money to spend I am sure you love it!

Well said.

It's basically an M9, but funnily enough, just put on a 'cheap' 28 Elmarit, and no DSLR system in the market could even match the image quality at low ISO. Sure the price is still too high but it has a good sensor.

Finally! Let's see how soon it will be available! Though hopefully the CCD look can be retained with this new sensor...

hi babola, it's not bad, but CA could be better for the price...

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.

FTW means even if he wanted to invest, those D600 samples did not impress him. You should take a reading class before commenting...

Hahaha JPG does not equal flat images! you just made yourself sound *bleep*

Hopefully the QC is not Sigma's hit and miss style. I would like to know if the multi-coating does the job taming those 23 elements esp against bright light sources.

why is the 4s sharper?

IQ must be good, but at $2800 it will also serve very well as a neck hanger...sort of cheaper version of M9

Let's see if these lenses will be available in stores before 2013...

Problem is, DOF at f2 is very thin - MF will be difficult. Canon's 135/2 L is an APO although the Zeiss might be better for that matter - but the Canon has very fast USM and already very sharp - at less than half the Zeiss price...

kewlguy: I don't see K30 has better IQ than T4i. At base ISO the 650D/T4i is sharper (check the RAW comparison). Also, Pentax likes to apply NR in raw files above ISO800. The 16MP sensor is good at high iso, why the raw NR? I prefer to keep all the detail intact and apply the NR myself...

walberty: read again. I said the T4i is sharper at 'base iso'. I did not say T4i wins in term of noise - only that K30 should not have NR in RAW! Brand affiliation? LOL I could not care less about such a foolish statement as I use more than one brand...
