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.
InTheMist: Looks very similar in function to the Lee SW150 which is available today.
But with much wider lens compatibility compared to specialised Lee SW150.
great addition to micro 4/3 line-up of lenses.
Donnie G: Big and heavy Sigma 35mm F/1.4 DG HSM or light and compact Canon 35mm F/2 IS USM? Nice try Sigma, but I'll go with the Canon lens. Thanks anyway.
This Sigma has a usb dock with which you can customise the lens to level to which none other lens on market can be done. Also the weight of this lens is from that extra stop on aperture which means a lot glass to move.
MichaelEchos: Which means, if D7x00 would be released with a 16MP sensor, we would see 7.5FPS without grip!
nope, D7x00 will most probably retains its current market spot. instead there will be a D300s replacement to do that.
Canon has lost its mind pricing that 24-70 f/4 for 1500$, even though specs are great that price is ridiculous.
Nathaniel George Weir: But hey you've got to admit that the most exciting thing here is the new lens caps ;)
very true, finally they decided to go with centre pinch design for lens caps after so many years.
NowHearThis: Looks like a bad mating between an L120 and a V1.
very true, it looks weird on a whole new level. although finally nikon has added PASM on mode dial which was sorely missing on V1.
Finally after so many years, Nikon has added 70-200 f/4 to the list of lenses should be good for landscape shooters.
