I wonder if it comes in a snazzy red, or, oh! wait that new Pentax yellow,...yes there are the endorphins. Hold it, you don't think the monochrome moniker applies to the body colour do you? Goodness, for shame.
Look, I get it.
Beautiful wide dynamic range, no AA handicap, clean tack sharp image. Construction beyond reproach.
But 5 mortgage payments?.... Not me, Pro's only need apply. They can generate the income to indulge. And make no mistake, this is an extraordinarily self-indulgent and self-referential camera.
expensive yesMP count okI think Ill shoot my next wedding with the 40 MP Nokia.
Seriously, I might not have the cheese to buy this body, or the D800 for that matter, but I can rent both and enjoy the quality. Personally Id rather spend 3k taking courses and having more original artistic thoughts in my own work.
Wow, Relax kids. Respect the body of work these gents have produced. Good to Fujifilm for allowing a more lucid look at performance. OK the shots weren't great. Get over it. Don't buy the camera if you believe four initial shots represent the pinnacle of its capabilities.
