In reply to:

jondh: The idea to make an FM like camera is a right decision. But if I were CEO of Nikon, seeing this resulting camera I will fire the designer team!

I'd raise their salaries.

Alright, keep bitching about the Nikon features/specs and buy the Leica - supposedly the most advanced camera in the world.

Klarth: Why does everyone wants VR on every lens?

Do you have Parkinson's?

These people need to drink less coffee and buy more zoom lenses.

Just a Photographer: Where's the market for this lens?
The 50mm costs around €300 This new 58mm lens is about € 1600 retail and the 85mm sells for €1300,00.

Buy the 50 and the 85 together (perfect companions) and you have two excellent lenses for the same amount as you would buy the 58mm only.....

Answer: Photographers who shoot wide open.

HetFotoAtelier: Can't wait to see how it compares to the $4,000 Zeiss :-)

It has AF. That's about it.

Biowizard: I love prime lenses. I love wide apertures. And for nearly 10 years I've been living with a zoom that maxes out at about F3.5. My next DSLR *will* live with prime lenses only. BUT ...

... over $1500 for an F1.4 lens with the same focal length as the Helios F2 that came with my original Zenit E? When I could buy a Zeiss Planar T* F1.4 50mm for my Contax S2 for a mere $500 or so just a few years ago? This is NUTS!

Noct[ilux] suggests F1.0 to me, not the bog-standard F1.4 we all used to enjoy before the Age of Zoom hit us!

@Biowizard What you just said makes no sense at all. I don't even know how to begin...

On Nikon D5300 preview (278 comments in total)
In reply to:

digiart: Another Nikon without in-body AF motor. Nikon doesn't listen/care about the many customers that have lenses without internal AF motor. I have several and I'm not going to sell them and loose A LOT of money, nor am I going to fork 750 Euros for a D7000.

The D5300 is probably a great camera (the bigger viewfinder is great news), but I think many would not mind a less specded camera but retaining the ability to autofocus with non AF-S lenses. If I'm going to loose AF I might as well buy a NEX-5 body and adapter for 420 Euros.

You should get over this motor thing, really.

Even though they are putting up a new D5X00 "almost each month", this seems to be a really good improvement over the previous models. Reducing the weight on this proportion is big. Maybe I should sell my D5100... That noisy and heavy camera.

Is that the "street price" for the 16mm, 435 Euro?

On Leica teases 'Mini M' for 11th June release article (304 comments in total)
In reply to:

Harold66: Indeed that rangefinder is a BIG part of the cost in a M. If this min M let s hope that :
It will be equipped with latest 2.3 million EVF and not an outdated one
It will allow user to use other ratios ( 5:4 , 4:3) than the very oblong 3:2 ratio
It will offer a better LCD or OLED ( better for outside) than the M

Of course! That's why a Bessa costs US$700 and the cheapest Leica US$5K - a costly rangefinder.

In reply to:

BoFiS: Ugh, STOP IT, basically everything 4.3" and above is too big to hold and use in one hand...our hands have not grown in the last couple of years, why have our phones?! Also all that extra space is silly if you're just going to fill half the home screen with an even-larger clock/weather widget.

Not everyone keeps looking at home screen.

In reply to:

///M: WOW, Canon can spend all this R&D on matched cinema lenses (which will likely be only sold to rental houses) for this niche market, but can't come up with a viable mirrorless camera with compact lenses, really? 1/2 of the DSLR sales in Japan are mirrorless cameras, it does not matter how small the crop sensor bodies get, they are still big and bulky compared to the micro 4/3 and other systems.

The problem is not failing on developing mirroless cameras, the real problem is that they are failing in developing new lenses and new DSLRs as well - with some exceptions, of course. Good thing they still have compacts' and video market...

Was the pool filled with Perrier? Otherwise, IQ would be compromised.

In reply to:

robmanueb: Nikon Coolpix A killer. Faster lens, quarter of the price and it has an optical viewfinder.

A quarter of the price, and God (or someone a bit more interested in this comparison) knows how many times smaller sensor.

In reply to:

carlosdelbianco: A 113 grams camera is cool, but lens could be faster since the sensor is so tiny. It is a f/16 lens in terms of DOF, isn't it?

Not pedantic at all, thanks for clearing this up!
