TheCyberKnight: This is a rebadged DMC-FZ150.Why would someone buy this? Seriously.
Some stupid people with deep pockets buy Leica compacts to show off that they own a Leica. I have seen people buying C-Lux and D-Lux series of compacts.
HowaboutRAW: All well and good, however this doesn't mean anything about the D3s, D3x, or the D700 (or the rumored replacements). Those are all still made in Japan but the earthquake did serious damage to the factory.
Earthquake in Japan delayed many replacement camera models. Nikon's D300s, D700, D3 series are yet to be replaced and Canon's 7D, and 5D mk II are yet to be replaced. Also many canon lenses have been delayed.
Debankur Mukherjee: Nikon and other companies should relocate their factory to places in Thailand where the recent flood did not effect.
What about the hard disk manufacturer ( WD and Seagate) - are they manufacturing ??
For hard drive manufactures the matter is even worse the parts that they use in manufacturing HDD's are sourced from manufacturers with plants in Thailand. So even if Seagate and WD shift their plants outside Thailand supplies of spares have taken a hit. as for camera manufacturers many had shifted the production to China after earthquake.
I am happy with my SB-700
PicOne: Well.. duh.. You need a market research company to tell you this.? Nikon equipment costs the most on average vs. market competitor peers.. so I kinda had the feeling Nikon already figured this out (and about 30 years ago or so)?
very true, look at the number of people who are actually buying Nikon 1 series of cameras and the Nikon lenses a lot more expensive than the competition.
What about the Sigma 150mm macro lens?
I hope Thailand recovers soon, its not just the camera production that has taken a big hit. Storage devices(HDDs) production has gone down.
beautiful, simply beautiful.
thats a very good looking camera.
Its a good news, but I hope Canon adds support for external HDD's as the file size with 4k video recording will be humongous.
LOL. This is absolutely ridiculous.
I reckon this same sensor without that stupid translucent mirror in between blocking the light will perform better.
its little too expensive for me. I will stick with my Nikon 14-24 for now.
Steven Blackwood: Where does this guy find these critters? Bravo!
just look in garden outside your house, you will find a lot of interesting subjects to photograph.
very unusual move by dpreview, never thought they would cover phone release on the site. Also if anyone wants to know this phone will be available at a cost of around 800US$.
tempting proposition. Will definitely wait for 7D replacement.
That definitely would be the most slippery SLR of all time.
