In reply to:

ABM Barry: I could never take Sony seriously as a pro camera as their systems seem to change on the hour every hour.
Whats it now, ..... 4 adapters from the last four experiments?

Canon and Nikon are reliable Systems that you can be sure that you won't get stuck with unusable lenses. NEX now dead I understand?

I can use 40 year old Nikkor lenses on the D4.

Sony still don't even have the basic standard design architecture in place.
What will the next lens mount be?, ..... and the one after that?

I have often looked at Sony and thought, "Mmm thats a nice feature" But again, can we trust the system longevity? Demonstrably No!

None of my Pro colleagues would consider investing in Sony, Very few do.

That's funny, because these new cameras will mount all legacy Sony/Minolta lenses. Not only that, but it will accept Lieca M, Canon, Pentax K, Olympus, and Nikon lenses as well.

I'll wait for someone to invent a FF digital film roll for my retro camera. $800. Sold.

dmartin92: The error Nikon has made is comical. One has the impression that they looked at the success of the Fuji X100 and said to themselves, "buyers want retro cameras", and then they went out and acted like robots designing a camera that would be very, very retro. Which it is.

But the camera is ugly. It's so retro it makes one chuckle. It's so retro, it looks fake.

The priority that the robots at Nikon didn't see is that it should be a modern, beautiful digital camera, first and foremost, and retro, secondly.

The problem isn't the looks. The problem is the size, internals, and price.

Thanks Nikon. But I think I'll buy a used FM2 for $250 instead.
I asked for a digital FM2, but Nikon seems to have forgotten what the FM2 was.

In reply to:

Bill Rees: Nikon's numbers are down and they stated that they were going to concentrate on high profit margin cameras. Why is anyone surprised?

Well I'm surprised, because the profit margin becomes irrelevant, if the camera doesn't sell.

Maybe that guy should get a gently used FM2 for $250.

In reply to:

km25: No video, not a deal breaker for for me, but it would be nice. If it is a an digital "FM", not AF? It think this camera is over priced. $2k, souns better... why not just by a D800/E. Or wait for the new D810, if that is want it is to be. I think smart people will wait about 6mo. before investing.

Maybe that guy should get a gently used FM2 for $250.

Does this mean that in 2030 Nikon will release an XD200 for $50,000?

jm67: Well, it's not for me by a long shot but I still dont' get the point of it. I'm sure someone out there will love it but I think it's a waste of the Earth's natural resources.

It's smaller, and actually uses(wastes) LESS of the Earth's resources than the larger cameras that you prefer.

Apple has the patent for the "smartcamera'.

So when can I have a used D700 for under $800?

Just what I was looking for. A wooden condom for my DSLR.

I thought I would never see the day when Nikon would need to look at Samsung for pointers on how to design a proper camera.

On Book Review: Linda McCartney, a Life in Photographs article (24 comments in total)

I always loved the photos she took for the McCartney album. I ALSO cherished that album as some of Paul's most intimate and brilliant works. This album was made during the height of the Beatles breakup and a very trying time in Paul's life. He plays all the instruments and recorded the entire album at his home.

Thomas Kachadurian: More than the Canon L macro? Someone at sigma is smoking something.

It has been determined on the Sigma Forum that high level executives at Sigma have been smoking Godzilla Dung AND are suffering from radiation exposure.
