bcalkins: "the on-board FAST AF system"

I'm trying to imagine an AF system that isn't "on-board" :)

You don't have to try, just google Canon FD 35-70mm f/4 AF
;)

Ridiculous. Not even worth discussion.
What next - if I use self-timer the credit for photo goes to camera manufacturer?
If I use leather gloves does the copyright belong to a cow (deceased) or farmer who owned the animal?

On Nikon 1 V3 First Impressions Review preview (624 comments in total)

I own it: 45
I want it: 75
I had it: 19

Where is the "I don't want it" button ???
Would seem appropriate, since for camera that's just few months old, 19 people already used "I don't want it" button in real life...

Again, a solution looking for a problem.
Here is the idea - try fitting a 400W/s on it, use umbrella... just make sure that the setup produces no wind ;)

Langusta: I'm having a hard time finding worse camera in this price range.

If that's what you would bet then I'd say don't try gambling ;)

ekaton: Put a decent lens on the a6000 and it leaves mft and Fuji in the dust, at least for stills and irrespective of price.

Now find this decent lens...

In reply to:

Wolfgang Fieger: Once more for better understanding: we photographers are not interested in movie making! If we would be interested in movie making we would be movie makers, not photographers. Please recognize the art of photography as a totally different form of art as movie making is. These two forms of art have less in common than painting and sculptury. The only connecting part is the fact, that both arts involve lenses as tools of their craftmanship.

myself =/= we

Langusta: Good job Nikon! Finally you found something where you can be successful...

I thought that shameless fan-boyism is people getting upset when their beloved company, cherished with holly, unquestionable numbers at DXO, meets some negative feedback...
Seriously...I have used various systems, N included. I have respected this company for what they used to be/do. Now it's a simply sad to see where they went: overpriced cr**p such as Nikkor AF-S 58 mm f/1.4G, having quality issues with almost every new release and try to challenge Sigma in court rather than R&D department.
Nikon with 76% of their sales located in cameras (Canon 26%, Oly ~15%) does seem to get desperate now; but instead of giving proper touch to the product, they go retro, defile Noct-Nikkor or sue someone...
Aren't you disappointed with it...not even a bit?

SPECIAL EDITION [...] is the same as the standard edition [...] but [...] it would be free of any dust motes (at the time of purchase only)
"
We can also expect "Limited Edition" that would be free of dust also some time after the purchase...
