PhilTate: I know very little about optics, but it seems that eventually the image will wind up on a flat surface, either as a print or on a computer screen. Won’t it take some doing to get the curved image flattened?

Yes the photography lenses will be better,faster and cheaper!

If camera manufacture can use curve sensor that will be the great achievement for photography! The camera lens can make it simple and achieve better image quality!

Zvonimir Tosic: But then, if software correction is a "bad" word in many people's dictionary, why kit lenses by other manufacturers never look so good in their results even after their software corrections?
Perhaps because no amount of software and ingenuity can mask the fact how bad they are. They must be an utter piece of rubbish then, and yet, you are willing to buy, live and enjoy that utter piece of rubbish only because it is utterly cheap ticket to dreamland.
Image taken with any camera is always an illusion, equally as an idea that any lens can be done cheaply. And yet, deeper the illusion, it seems, the happier crowd is. "Cruel" reality simply flies above the head because no one has guts to look at it with a lens of expectations and understanding totally undistorted.

We are talking about Leica-the little red dot here, NOT Canon!

l_d_allan: 1. If you purchase a new C100, would it come with DPAF enabled?

2. What about the 1D-C?

2. Really makes you wonder if the 5d3 might have this as a latent capability that Magic Lantern gurus could enable? They are wizards, imo.

Good question.

SteB: This is most certainly not a Nikon FM. The FM was in a class of cameras like the Olympus OM-1 and the Pentax MX. These were stripped down metal bodied cameras, which were at a similar price or even cheaper than plastic bodied consumer orientated SLRs. In other words they were the type of camera a pro could use, at a consumer near entry level price. This class of camera was also known for its simplicity, just manual mode and the basic features. Whereas the Nikon F3 was an entirely different beast, a big solid no compromise pro camera, that if I remember rightly cost about 9-10 times the price of the Nikon FM. This thing is more like an F3 on sterioids, all the bells and whistles, with a load of styling flourishes from older Nikons.

It's clearly not retro done right as it is self-evidently primarily designed as male jewellry. Whilst it will undoubtedly serve as a good camera, it is too big, too expensive, and with too many design flourshes, which won't ehance it as a camera.

Of course not FM - Df ! Who say this camera is FM?

Don't dream about FM,FE. Nikon do not have any parts to support this two legendary camera. Their service centre ever warm me to take care of this old grandfather. If not should prepare a grand funeral wake for FM & FE.

In reply to:

LukeDuciel: The MTF of the Nikon new "noct" has nothing exciting compared to Zeiss Otus 55mm.

Not sure why Nikon built this thing. Probably for the loyal fans?

The Nikon MTF:

Zeiss MTF: http://lenses.zeiss.com/content/dam/Photography/new/pdf/en/downloadcenter/datasheets_otus/otus_1455.pdf

The Zeiss 'World best standard lens' cost 4K no autofocus. The Nikon AFS 58mm cost more than 1K with autofocus. You choose.

Wrong, our gears are water resistance not water prof. A rain poncho will help you to combat the bad weather.

3dreal: The 100/2.8 macro c/y zeiss belong to the top zeiss lenses ever. maybe you had a used one which didnt yet see service. i have bought a used 60/2.8 1:1. It was only years later, when i first used it that i recognized the blades needed cleaning. In an interview of two zeiss managers(one was dr. hubert nasse) in a german photo magazine i have read that until recently they were not allowed to get the best out of the lenses. and that the new HQ will be at the level of MF photography.
How can we use that lens on nikon, canon SLRs without aperture ring?

Use original Canon 'L' lens you will never regret.
