I wonder how many people complaining about looks and it will never take good pictures has even shot pictures with a V1. Try putting a F mount lens on a V1 and go shoot some pics before complaining it will never take good pics. And as for looks of the camera. I have never had anyone say anything one way or the other about the looks of my gripped D700. Who cares what it looks like as long as it takes good pictures. Who cares what anyone else thinks what the camera looks like. Get over it.
I have a V1 that takes great pictures especially for wildlife. I use a 70-300 VR lens on it and I have a 810MM setup that is great for wildlife. It also takes great pictures with the kit lenses and all of my f mount lenses.
I can't bear these comments.
Khizer: I have waited several months for rumoured next generation cameras from Canon and Nikon. I guess I will just go ahead and buy the Canon 1D-X when it arrives in March. Can't wait forever for Nikon's D800 or D4 :(
D800 is on Nikon Rumors. Due in spring.
