1.75m minimum focus distance, not quite a modern lens design parameter.

The Sony 70-400 and Sigma 50-500 are still better buy, as the price difference to the Nikkor is enough to buy an entry level DSLT/DSLR body.

johnparas11zenfoliodotcom: Oh nikon :-(
I am sure it going to be a good performer/IQ or what have you..but.. No for me..

just the looks of the camera alone is already a no for me.. why is nikon so conservative with designs?

1 year from now it will be heavily discounted to $500 like the V1 kit.

There is no 1080 60/50p and external mic option.And the max shutter speed is 1/2000s.

A more appropriate MSRP price is $900. Think price of a X100s minus EVF, or a NEX5R plus EVF

The NEX5R plus the new 20mm pancake lens will be a much better buy

RubberDials: Every other camera manufacturer has centre pinch caps - Sony, Pentax, Nikon, Olympus - even Minolta had them.

There's me thinking it's finally time for Canon to come clean with it's users and give them in-body IS and they roll out centre-pinch caps. Simply amazing.

Wrong understanding that IBIS needs lens with larger image circle. What it needs is larger sensor to move around.

Well, at least it is more reasonably priced than the $7,195 50mmF2
