Really like this one. Very robust industrial feeling. Nicely done!
Nicely seen, nicely done!
Francis Carver: Not sure what the actual purpose behind these shots is? I mean, there are plenty of available photos of 1950s era automobiles available that were taken in the 1950s. These are different (better?) -- how? Not trying to be difficult, mind you, I am just really "not getting" these ones here.
Forget it. You'd need a little imagination to understand.
Street Photography: The representation of anyone, awake or asleep, alive or dead, caught unawares in an urban outdoor setting.
Fahd: Does this affect the Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6 DC HSM?
Not "old" versions of the 10-20mm. There apparently isn't a "firmware" upgrade (i.e. not backward-compatible), according to the tech I spoke with at Sigma. Not sure there's any upgradable firmware in the lens itself. Probably just in the new dock. None of this has been very clear on DPR (especially in these fora) or in the releases, which is why I called them.
I just spoke with a technician at Sigma HQ in NY. He said current releases of this lens are not backward compatible (i.e. will not work properly) but all new versions being shipped from Japan with the label "D5300 Compatible" will work.
inframan: I don't see the Sigma 10-20mm lens listed here, although it has HSM & is still being sold new everywhere. So is it compatible with the 5300 Live View or is it too old for a "fix". What gives?
Thanks Toshik. I appreciate your civilized response.JDT didn't answer my question; he recapped the original announcement. Not the same thing.
So how about a straight answer, JDT - is the 10-20mm compatible with the d5300 or not?
Wonderful!BTW, Limburger, more Magritte than Dali. :)

Not sure anyone is starving. Not sure this is anything but another exploitative "street" shot.
Why all the conspiracy theories? If this was a concerted effort on Nikon's part to sabotage Sigma lenses, why would they only implement it on the d5300? Makes no sense given its relatively small share of the market.
InTheMist: You have to admit, the photos themselves are average, but the rarity and subject makes them special!
I haven't had enough coffee today to find deeper meaning in that.
Average is a whole lot better than pretentious or derivative though, ain't it?
Hugo808: I got as far as number 7 before deciding that if I'd taken them they would have gone into the bin and never been seen by anyone!
Another snotty self-serving comment. You only keep pics of bands you pay in? But you're not famous, are you?
inframan: It's a statement in itself about its readers that DPR felt compelled to identify each source photograph.
I'm not even sure what a " wannabe elitist fake" is, but my apologies for ruffling authentic populist feathers. ;)Am I a snob because I think people allegedly interested in photography should be expected to do some basic groundwork in its history? So be it.

inframan: I don't know if I'd actually want to shoot with this but I do think it would look beautiful prominently displayed in a glass case. Maybe Nikon could come out with a "dummy" non-working version like some gun collectors buy, all looks & no guts. They might even get more buyers.
Many thanks, Tee1up. My shelves are already full of trophies & precious relics. Guess I forgot to include a winky-face. ;).

jhinkey: I have no problem with the DF for what it is, but I have a major problem with the price.For the cost of a D800 you get a lot less camera in almost every regard except for size/weight, external dials, and high ISO DR.The price should be out of silly land at $2800 and down towards $2K, then I'd be interested in picking it up as a complement to the D800.Now it would have been worth $2800 if it had removable screens, standard split prism screen or a built-in EVF. I guess the built-in EVF will be on a really high end Dx body first . . .
Yeah, I agree about the lack of removable screens (& viewfinders). If they'd included these maybe they could have called it the F6.Still it is a great-looking piece of retro-art. Kind of like the high-end sports cars that give you a "stick-shift" w/o a clutch. ;)
aeschylus: If you've a desktop computer and conventional screen I struggle to see the point of manipulating images on any tablet. Better to use the former and then transfer them.
~Plastek - you are the king/queen of cheap shots, hands down.
