my last compact camera was Canon S45, 4 mpix camera which made perfect quality images for compact camera. After that I bought some 10mpix camera I dont remember model which I sold same day because that cama doesn't make any better pictures then my phone and cost close to same. That was a moment when I decide not to buy anything till something new and decent come out. I dont want to pay 400$ for pocket camera because I have Nikon D3 for everything serius I need but also I dont want to pay 200$ for something which I have in phone already. Industry will need to rethink even about low cost pocket cameras, not only middle class price camers. Who 1st made that step he will win the prize!
bearseamen: I was naively hoping for a kit lense replacement for something like 500-700 euros :(
yes, it say 1299$ MSRP which is close to Canon or nikon high end zooms, but I think price will drop fast, may be over 1 month and will be around 900$ street price or that lens must be perfect in quality as canon or nikons
may be already someone ask this question before but which camera dpreview use to make pictures of all testing gear, body's, lenses, etc... we see on this web site?
Thank you very much and I wish you all happy Christmas!!!
They need to test this yet a lot if they going to release it for 5 months. I'm Nikon fan and user but Canon deserve to have decent rival camera after Nikon released my D3 before ~4 years.This is camera which 1D mark IV should be. :)And if they going to release this for 5 months noone will buy any 1D series till April from any shop after this news, I think that's some kind of "fail" moment but OK, there is some good news for people who was thinking to replace Canon for Nikon completely... they can still wait this few months and be happy for 6800 bucks ;)
