Best part is the Zeiss lens. I would love for this camera to have external shutter and ASA controls circa 1960 too.

DPReview is a fun read, but I have to take what they say with a grain of salt. I prefer to examine reviews from diverse outlets before coming to any conclusion. Even after I spend my hard-earned cash I understand that sooner than I would like, my beautiful-new camera will become obsolete. Thankfully, a great lens has some staying power.

Fujinon lenses trump Sony lenses. Yes, they are smaller and sharper. Can't beat that.

Sweet little camera. I have always like Fujinon lenses.

I read, "Would this camera be taken more seriously if it were labeled Hasselblad?" Actually, Hasselblad would of charged another two grand for the privilege.

taotoo: No way will it be sapphire crystal. Probably just a hard plastic.

Smaller... cheaper.

Pavel Sokolov: Who need an unscratchable lens when you should buy new iphone every year? ;)

Pavel, Quite pretentious and childish. Very sad. In America many do the same.

Sony could use some good Hassy/Zeiss lenses.

In reply to:

SLRist: The price could perhaps be justified if all the accessories were bundled, but Sony are clearly taking a huge gouge here. The price of the lens hood is a clear indication of that.

This kind of money is excessive for what is effectively a disposable camera. At least in the days of film, your high quality camera body wouldn't be rendered redundant every 5 years, and retained a reasonable resale value.

If they shaved off 30% of the price and included an EVF I might be interested, but I can't see enough benefit over my X100 to justify an upgrade.

You are right again sir.

Great pictures don't come cheap. I would love one, but I can't rationalize the price. If I were Romney or a Rockefeller, no problem.

The video of the shutter sound is a joke. C'mon, you can do better than that.

When I upgrade to the new iMac, I may have to consider this product.

Yes, Nikon is still making great cameras. They came out with about a dozen this year.
