yabokkie: very like GX1, marketed as a high end with compromised features. don't know if it has same capacity for deep price plunge as GX1.
If you want to be successful in bashing a camera you have to say something that is believable, something near the reality but a little uncertain or something that can be difficult to prove. Saying that GX7 has compromised features won't work. Try harder.
Hugo808: Trouble is, if you aren't using lenses with an aperture ring you still have to use the command dials which is kind of what they are trying to get away from with all this retro stuff, or am I wrong about that?
Seems to me that having an aperture dial will be a lot more useful to most than a shutter speed dial, I had one of those on an old Contax and didn't use it once!
Ah well, each to their own...
From what I see it has a double interface. Two command dials and/or dedicated shutter speed dial + aperture ring on the lens. If you use a manual lens with aperture ring you set shutter speed from the dedicated dial or one of the command dials. If a modern AF lens you can use the two command dials as any other Nikon DSLR.
viking79: Quick question, I didn't save the specs from Amazon, does the Df have live view? This is related to its lack of video option.
It has LV. There is a dedicated button in the back.
Antimateria: Ahahah.Minolta Dynax 7, 2000, first modern reflex retro style and direct manual controls for all.Konica Minolta 7d, first digital reflex retro style and all manual controls, 2005!!And now 13 yars after, Nikon.AHAHAHAHAHAH.Nikonians, you are so fun!
What is Minolta and what is Konica?
absentaneous: frankly, I've never really understood the point of paying someone to tell you what's their taste.
Every serious collection of images has most probably pass through an intensive editing and organizing stage before being presented in a book, a website or an exhibition space. I have attended portfolio critique and organizing seminars and I was shocked about their not just usefulness but necessity. It is amazing what a experienced editor can do with a photographer's images by selecting a subset of them and by putting them in the "right" order.The service provided by eyeist is something much needed IMO.
Is there any information if there will be a SDK to access the camera core functions and controls?
I thought it would be much more expensive. I was wrong. It make a lot more sense now against a FF with a 24-70 f/2.8. It gives APS-C a big boost.
ADDED: At this price exposes other lens manufactures on their pricing policy.
Very good. Thank you!
The A-Team: And why is this article on Connect?
Probably because iPhone is the most popular camera in Flickr:http://www.flickr.com/cameras
One of the big complains is the justified default picture arrangement on the photostream page (many pictures one on the other :)). In the Contacts->Recent Photos page there is the option to change the justified view to square, small, medium and large. Unfortunately this doesn't work yet. I am expecting this kind of custom view option to added to all the thumbnail pages. When and if this happen it will cure one of the bigger complaints I believe. Let's give them some time. For the moment I noticed this page which let you customize recent activity:http://www.flickr.com/activity/customized/
panos_m: A question about the price. At 30-35mm and f/1.2 is there anything cheaper independent of format?
I was wondering mainly if it's actually such expensive as almost all here think. I believe the opposite. It's the cheapest f/1.2 lens at this range of focal length and maybe one of the cheapest f/1.2 despite the focal length.

panos_m: Here it is on a D7100 next to 24-70 f/2.8 on a D600. Thanks to camerasize.com :).
@Photato and Plastek:Entry level FF doesn't mean entry level DSLR. I compared a camera at $2000 with a camera at $1500. Where is the difficult part?
@Photato: I am not trying to say something negative about the Sigma lens. I welcome it. It makes a lot of sense for the Sigma DSLRs and for owners of DX/APSC cameras. It's another option which is a good thing. I am thinking about why Canon and Nikon don't make such a lens or more other high quality lenses for their crop cameras.I choose these two pairs of cameras from C & N because I expect such an expensive lens to be bought from the advanced DSLR user and not from the entry level one. I was not trying to make an academic absolute comparison.
Canon 6D with 24-70 f/2.8 II is actually lighter at 1575 gr than 7D with the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 at 1670 gr (weight data reported by camerasize.com):
@BJN: That is exactly my point also. I do not see a worthy size-weight advantage for the Sigma lens.
EDIT: Maybe that is why N & C don't make such a lens.

StephaneB: Hilarious to see comments here from people who obviously have no idea of what Eggleston brought to photography.
Seeing just a picture of a tricycle here is like saying the Grand Canyon is just another valley. And a bad one at that, there isn't even a bridge.
@StephaneB: thanks for your input.
@StephaneB: What did Eggleston brought to photography? I am honestly interested in your opinion.
Kurt_K: Unless a person is only planning on using this with pancake lenses, I'm not sure what the point is.
@zxaar: of course but I thought that the argument here is about smallest possible lenses.
