with such a high rating, jpeg(which most users will use) imagequality rating is not that high
small sensor in larger body, huuum
whether it be a name brand or phony, "manufacturing cost"can't be more than 15. usd AT MOST
Canon & Nikon, listen-up.
The days of the consumer DSLR are pretty much over.
why did they bother
in order to update the scoring system of so many excellent cameras; place additional weight on any aspect of a product that does not meet the best in class
this will keep manufacturers on their toes and make buying decisions simpler
just an "ok" lens but, acceptable on an inexpensive body at the price.
Say Leica, waddabout a "Sepia Only" camera.
and they'll sell all they can make.
Apple, buy Leica.
and when the heck areCanon going to drop thename "REBEL", soundslike the title of some 70scheap pulp fiction novel
with the huge sales decline of dslrs alone, this is not thetime to relax quality control
bet Sony could produce a MF camera for 2500. and make a profit...do it Sony do it..... also a 4X5 for under 10Kthey can do that and will do that
at first glance, looks like a Brownie
Barnum was right
