Great news, its a good step in right direction.
could please upload some sample pics for this challenge?
if that hand-grip is actually polished wood then this camera would be crap and only fools who buy such cameras (including Leica C-Lux and D-Lux) as a fashion statement would buy it.
any pics of the 60mm macro lens?
other mirrorless camera systems are looking like garbage when compared to the the micro 4/3 systems due to sheer number of accessories and lenses available. Now all this system needs is are good tilt-shift lenses.
Pen lite looks more like Pen(non lite) series cameras from previous generation.
distance scale on that 60mm macro is insane, also price is just right. cant wait to get one.
built in GPS and wireless are big plus for this SLR. pixel count is decent(more than enough for most photographers).
mpgxsvcd: Wow the 7D really doesn't look so good next to this 6D.
true, though AF on 7D might perform better than 6D.
collapsible lens, retro design with horrible ergonomics. Thanks but no thanks.
Dpreview has forgot to cover announcement of Tamron 90mm VC macro lens. here is a link http://www.tamron.com/en/news/2012/0913_02.html
I would like to see this camera succeed commercially, as it would mean that Nikon and Canon would bring out similar compacts.
Its been a long time since Pentax offered a good tele-photo lens.
Thomas Kachadurian: It has always struck me that Canon puts much too high a price on their TS-E 24 because they can.
Given it doesn't have to have fast AF or a compact size, or even electric contacts, I see no reason why Samyang--based on the lenses I have of theirs--can't be every bit as good as Canon L. It even has a red ring!
I'll buy one if it's under $1000 before the reviews are even out.
even if IQ of this lens slightly lower than the Canon/Nikons for 1000$ this lens is going to be a lens to have in the bag for beginners.
Vobluda: And now lets see the AF.
check this preview video on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_JZ_bWWg3Y&feature=player_embedded
Might just end up buying this camera for travelling.
I would like to see more of these accessory reviews, more specifically reviews of lighting products like macro lights, studio lights and speedlights in general.
falconeyes: To anybody in the knows ...
I've got a question: Why is it that cine lenses (in general, and from Zeiss, comparing their cine and SLR offerings in particular) are much more expensive than SLR lenses -- while at the same time, the resolution requirement for cine lenses must be on the lower end even considering 4k video, i.e. 8MP?
@frettled: I would also like add, most cine lenses are calibrated for transmission stops rather than f-stops(aperture opening) which makes these more expensive compared to traditional SLR lenses.
no thanks, although it will be a really camera to hack like the Nikon camera.
