DotCom Editor: No money for the photographer. So, Canon, Nikon and all the others will now be lowering prices on camera gear?
Why would they do that?
MediaDigitalVideo: D4s and NO 4K recording ?
Unlike Canon, Nikon haven't spent the last few years releasing dedicated video lenses, and given this isn't a Mickey mouse camera, what's the point of adding 4K to it?
topstuff: I'm sure someone will be along in a moment comparing it to an Olympus EM-1.
It seems every camera is compared to an EM-1 these days.
Whatever the question, some people think the answer is m4/3.
Of course they will, it wouldn't be DP Review comments without a mindless dialogue of passionate argument concerning technological detail
Ho ho, KR got this one a bit wrong didn't he!
Just thought I would check out some camera moaning before I took the dog out for a walk
I love these :)
Hahahahaahah! "The Df is rather pretty"
Looks fun :)
Pat Cullinan Jr: It was staged. Even the New York Times revealed this. Read http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/18/arts/design/18capa.html?ref=arts, if you dare.
We'll take your word for it then.
Lan: The obvious question is: Why?
Is this going to be optically better than the other cine lenses already on sale? Very unlikely.
Much better built? No.
Is it much cheaper than the other cine lenses? Clearly not.
Will it have a bigger ecosystem of lenses with matched "feel"? Again, that's almost undoubtedly a "no".
What advantages does this bring to the market? Is there even one thing that's significantly better than the competition? If they do have something, they need to inform marketing about it - because I'm not seeing it!
This looks very much like a hopelessly late, desperate leap to jump onto a really shiny bandwagon that was last seen rolling past a few months ago...
I'd wait for these in the sales bin. Along with the battered remnants of Kenko/Tokina in due course...
I was wondering exactly this, especially when I saw the probable retail price.
Wow, every single image taken by anything there looks like utter crap. Perhaps it's time to put down these phones and stop kidding ourselves.
What troubles me is any manufacturer of anything on this planet could market something in such a hideous, nauseating yellow. It's simply astounding
Some genuinely paranoid remarks below. Has there ever been a major legal dispute regarding someone's personal data and Facebook? I mean other than idiots posting stuff about their employers etc, has Facebook ever actually screwed someone over say for example over the copyright of their creative work, such as photography? All i'm reading is Facebook tightening up to safeguard themselves, not take control over our lives.
I'm actually quite curious, though may have not entirely grasped something in the article.
Blimey, I was going to say something cynical about the usual comments that greet anything much posted here, but those samples are seriously dreadful. Boring and dreadful.
onlooker: Hard to justify it in the days of RX 100.
Sony software was designed by someone with a genuine grudge against mankind, hence why I avoid anything Sony unleash upon the world. That is all
Wow, talk about 'eye of the beholder.' I'm very happy for the photographers who made such ludicrous amounts of money for completely mediocre junk, I really am. But that's more of a list of human stupidity than anything else
I just dropped by to moan about something or other, the comments below are utterly wonderful
AngryCorgi: This crotchety old man just successfully trolled the entire internet. Well played, sir. Well played.
Nicely DP, these are very real options for consideration now that Adobe have lost the plot.
