Peiasdf: Just checked out Pentax's lens line up and I cannot find a single fast normal prime. The cheapest "50mm" is 35mm f/2.4 at $180 while the fastest is 31mm f/1.8 at $1,000. Where is the cheap f/1.4~f/1.8?
Good cameras, weird ass lens line up.
why dont you check keh.com they have a good collection of used pentax lenses. Pentax made some of the best small sized fast prime lenses. I own 5 prime lenses for Pentax K-Mount including f1.2 lens.
Certainly a good addition to the micro 4/3 line-up of lenses. Now waiting for Olympus's 60mm macro and 75mm lens as well.
MPA1: I was not pleased to read this on their site:
"Special note for Nikon lens adapters:With few Nikkor lenses of the G-series the weather sealing of the lens has to be removed."
Ain't gonna happen!
actually you will have to remove the rubber gasket as it comes in the way of setting apertures when using the adapter. Also Novoflex adapters aint some 3rd party rip-off accessory they are genuine quality products.
thx1138: Why oh why do manufacturers refuse to make an underwater camera that shoots RAW or uses even a 1/1.7" sensor. Whoever does so will make a killing. Olympus should make and underwater version of the XZ-1 and keep the fast glass please.
a larger sensor and fast glass is a must for underwater camera. Also manual control for camera functions is a must. Lets see which manufacturer brings out such a camera.
Photomonkey: I am shocked, SHOCKED, that they would release a camera that is not perfect. What were they thinking?<sarcasm/>
almost all the cameras releases in last couple of years have some sort of unresolved issues at release. none of the new cameras released are perfect.
Jonathan Reed: ThinkTank makes the best bags out there. Worth every penney.
their camera bag accessories are also very good.
Chaitanya S: Anyone know similar app for Android devices?
@Stig: I tried the chainfire for the last two days, it has a critical flaw it tethers camera connection including the live view which means its draining the camera battery unnecessarily so I will wait for android version of trigger trap. Thanks for the reply.

Theophis: My experience with Nikon batteries has been excellent. I have the 8800, D200, and a D700. My oldest camera batteries were made in 2005, and they still take and hold a charge.
Along the way I bought 2 knock off (made in china) brand EN-EL3 batteries that did NOT last 12 months. Both batteries are useless; I can't throw them far enough to reach the landfill.
Naysayers are welcome to their opinions, but my observations support Nikon only batteries. Priceless, albiet higher cost.
original accessories are designed to last, unlike most 3rd party accessories which are only cheap knock offs.
user interface looks impressive.
justmeMN: Once again, Nikon is alone in offering a DSLR with no Automatic Exposure Bracketing. Even many compact cameras have AEB. This is designed as a beginners camera, and beginners need AEB the most, to conveniently handle tricky lighting situations. (And, of course, AEB is also used by people who use HDR software.)
I don't want to own a high Mp camera, it puts too much strain on my storage system and ultimately on pocket.
I think like most Nikon products this lens will sell for cheaper price in India atleast at the moment.( thx to insane US$ to INR conversion rate).
ivan1973: Nikon D4 will be developing its own 4K with cinema lenses. Do not say not possible, it will.
sensor of this camera is developed specially for shooting movies unlike D4 which was designed for still primarily.
neat design. also a reasonable price.
I think Canon is in deep trouble, remember 1Dx was announced well over 6 months back so I was kind of expecting some really good number of this camera in stock at the launch. But since that hasn't happened, Canon is really screwed up and such delays are going to dent Canon's reputation further more among pro-shooters. (there was a similar delay with their mk II of super telephoto lenses)
rather than a single review, shootout between different super-zooms on market would have helped first time buyers.
love those expressions in eyes.
