Atleast Panasonic has come senses they are not reducing the size of camera anymore.
idbar: I thought Samsung and Sandisk had already products out there. What's new about the Trascend product?
@redfox88: Samsung and Sandisk command high prices on premium products is because they are the once manufacturing flash chips(atleast Samsung does) and they are the once to do binning of the chips.
Inclusion of adobe lightroom on a consumer grade camera is a great move by samsung. I hope more camera manufacturers do the same on their pro/semi-pro cameras instead some proprietary raw editor which works with single raw format.
trekkeruss: Is that an LED chip between the flash and the lens?
yes, it is an led light between flash and lens.
DerbyBill: Where's the 70D?
My thoughts exactly or the the 7D mk 2? Also for a 18-55mm lens that costs 250$ it should atleast have a metal mount.
Will wait for some reviews. some of the samyang lenses have been really good performers, so wouldnt be wrong expect this lens to perform 90% of equivalent canon or nikon lens.
no pricing for 60mm yet, any news when the dock shall be available in market. as I haven't seen that dock for sale at b&h so far.
Finally, they replaced the worst lens in their telephoto line-up. I am getting this one no matter what.
Petka: I suspect the oil is coming from the shutter assembly. It might be a new design and nobody had the mind to do a longer test to see if there is an oil spray problem in it, or the units are assembled with too much oil or with oil not sticky enough. Careless design project control in any case. Problem might go away with time after excess oil has splattered away or dried a bit, but taking the camera for cleaning for a few times is annoying, especially if you have to pay for it.
During the film era this would not have mattered at all, as oil did not accumulate on anything.
this leaking oil has been a problem since D7000 came out, my D800 also has the same issue. I think I might buy back Canon SLR soon.
Chaitanya S: hope Nikon's quality control doesn't screw this camera like they did with some of their previous cameras. My experience was terrible with Nikon products in past.
both D7000 and D800 I own have problem with oil leaking onto sensor. I have sent both the cameras for service quite a few times but I still have oil spots on the sensor. worst part of oil spots is that when they appear I am hundereds of kilometers from the nearest service center, photographing reptiles/amphibians. Before these two Nikon cameras I owned Pentax cameras(film) and then went to own Canon D-SLR's.
A small typo on 4th page: its MB-D15 battery grip that is compatible with this camera not MB-D12. Correct it.
hope Nikon's quality control doesn't screw this camera like they did with some of their previous cameras. My experience was terrible with Nikon products in past.
wondering if this sensor will be used in nikons d300s replacement. or it will be the other 24mp sensor.
I need to announce bankruptcy once this lens is released in India. Also Nikon 800mm f/5.6 lens is the most exciting announcement of 2013 so far.
monkeyking: This lens does not seem to have filter threads?
it does, see closely at the 1st photo. threads are for filter size of 49mm.
micahmedia: Well, all it needs is a killer sensor, since the lenses already exist. Kodak has made some legendary sensors in the past, so maybe with their patents and Sony's fab, this has some potential.
Heck , if it's cheap and offers manual control of video with no time limit, I'm all over it!
you that it is not true kodak, its similar to Sakar selling stuff under Vivitar name.
It certainly would be useful, do want one.
roy5051: Wot? No DSLRs?
Hopefully we will see new D-Slrs just before Japanese CP+ show at the end of this month.
Ron Poelman: hmmm, not working here.(First click on image does nothing)Firefox with Adblock.Do we need to enable something ?
disable adblock, even I had similar problem.
Olympus has done a fantastic job with EM-5. Especially when they are in financial crisis . Bringing this camera and whole lot of new lenses into system has made micro 4/3 format the most comprehensive mirrorless camera system on market.
