after reading rave reviews of D7000 and D800 I had bought Nikon DSLR and Lenses. But after facing leaking oil on both the camera and frustrating experience with their service department. I got rid of Nikon kit and went back to Canon cameras. Shame on Nikon with sub-par handling of known issues on their cameras.
Todays announcements from Olympus and Sony shows difference between a camera manufacturer and a consumer electronics manufacturer. I am really tempted to get a mirrorless camera from either Fuji or one of m43 camera makers as a carry around camera for macro work.
Wow, the macro light is awesome. I am placing a pre-order for that one today.
Videographers wet dream.
I am really interested in the film duplicator, I have tons of old films that I need to be digitised.
14-42 looks like a good lens for small m4/3 camera. I will wait for reviews to see how does it compare to Panasonic 12-32 lens.
I guess this camera will support the larger telephoto lenses that Fuji is planning to release in near future. I just want Fuji to release a 90/100mm macro lens with 1:1 magnification ratio before I decide to buy into the X-system.
for the price its really a good deal.
d10694: So we buy a camera because it's very small, and then buy something to make it bigger so that we can hold it. Obvious.
Thanks for the comparison, it was just in time for me. I am currently looking at replacing 10 year old tripod head.
Finally I can replace my old SX-10 IS with a new weather sealed camera. Price seems pretty decent as well.
Fuji is on right road, bringing more choice of glass to the users.
Quite an interesting addition to Samsung Mirrorless camera. Sadly though unlike Olympus/Panasonic 's m4/3 or Sony NEX non of the other mirrorless solutions are easily available in India.
utomo99: How to take this photos ? Any tips and tricks. how to reduce the glass effect ?
use good quality polarisers.
Chaitanya S: Along with m43, only Fuji X-system is becoming an serious alternative for photographer wanting to go mirrorless route.
Sony has always brought some innovative design concepts to market. But when it comes to interchangeable camera systems- lenses are going to be at the heart of any system. And so far Sony hasn't been paying much attention to that. Lets see if 2-3 years down the line they offer lenses like m43 or Fuji-X. Until then I am going to stay away from Sony. I am hoping the success of A7/7r motivates Canon and Nikon to design and release their own FF mirrorless cameras. In past both these manufacturers had rangefinders in their catalogues so making small FF lenses shouldn't be a big problem for either of the two.
only if sony releases some good lenses for that system. So far on E-mount I have seen more bodies being released than lenses. Also Sony has history of abandoning systems for no reason at all.
Along with m43, only Fuji X-system is becoming an serious alternative for photographer wanting to go mirrorless route.
expressivecanvas: I was about 99% sure I will be moving to a Pentax system to replace my obsolete Olympus system but if Tamron is going to be passing on making lenses in Pentax mount from now on, I might need to reevaluate. I'm not implying that I think this particular lens will be a 'good' lens, but Tamron does indeed make some really nice, fast lenses. If they are dropping Pentax, I definitely need to reevaluate systems...
its not just Tamron who has stopped making lenses for Pentax, Zeiss and Sigma also have stopped making lenses for Pentax K-mount.
Couscousdelight: But why not the 20Mpxl sensor with Dual AF ? It would fit perfectly a...mirrorless.
Canon thinks that can cannibalise sale of 70D if Dual pixel AF is put inside lower end bodies.
