Surprisingly trite takes on its subjects & uninspired composition/processing.
Great stuff! Deserved win.
Dimit: Now,why on earth someone unsuspected would/should choose this dinosaur over nex7 or a6000 (mention those with the same price exactly)???...but then there always be idiots among us,same all story..
Also there be newby idiots among us who are barely literate yet still throw around abusive comments. What is this place to you - team sports?
Elyahu: Do you mean shopping centre or mall?
You may not care about a name but as host you probably should care about clear communication of your topic.
Tom_A: Interesting proposition: more than sufficient resolution and no low pass filter. Couple it with a good lens and you should have a convincing camera for most amateurs.
High praise indeed as that should cover about 95% of DPR population. :)
whtchocla7e: The 70's called... they do NOT want this camera back. It's ugly as hell...
This comment is so subjective, I'm not sure what it contributes to the conversation.
Back before digicams, people didn't pay that much attention to the looks of a camera (except for the TLR vs. SLR vs. RF folks), just to what they could accomplish with it.
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.

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?
