I suspect in a year or two's time this Nikon 1 Series business model won't be much aclaimed either
Seems to me Nikon are misjudging & overpricing the Nikon 1 system. I just don't get it, the 4/3 system just as compact, cheaper & probably better image quality. In case you think I have a downer on Nikon I have a Nikon DSLR & love it.
Yet another camera without a viewfinder, when will these manufacturers take on board that LCD screens are useless in bright sunlight?
tkbslc: Everyone keeps whining about f5.6 vs f6.3. That's not even quite a third of a stop. It would mean the difference between shooting ISO 800 and ISO 966. You'd likely need a microscope to spot the DOF differences.
@T3 It's remarkable that you seem to infer & find so much amusement from the single self evident statement that a slower lens may not be so quick to focus.
Not about DOF, expect more focus hunting at lower light levels
I so much wanted this camera to be a success as it was a move in the right direction, optical viewfinder, manual zoom, EXR technology, decent build quality & controls, all in a carry anywhere compact design. What a shame the orb problem has overshadowed what is undoubtedly a very good camera, hopefully the new sensor will be the fix needed, then I will be buying one.
Sigma's pushing of a thermally stable composite sounds to me like a solution to a problem that does not exist & smacks of marketing desperation. Not to mention an f6.3 aperture at the long end. Nothing new to see here, move along.
