CameraLabTester: No amount of firmware will rescue a design that is originally flawed.
Well, at the very least they tried something different. Sales numbers will tell the tale.
Meanwhile Canikon churns out another iteration of the same. Which works, don't get me wrong, but is awfully boring.
RichRMA: You can't really vote for the Sony R's. They are far too new. Wait till they wring them out a bit more.
I assure you, you can indeed vote for the Sonys.
RichRMA: Do they have an I.S. mode that works on a tripod? Is someone likely to be using this hand-held?
Of course people are going to use it handheld. It's a 150-600, not a 600, and even if it were a straight 600 people would still use it handheld.
mrc4nl: as a m43 user a rectininear 10mm is great, the question for me is which mount should i choose.
a "native" m43 mount may yield better results (because a adapter will introduce small misalignments)
Or i choose i Nikon mount, so i can use it on a nikon body, but also on a speedbooster gaining one stop and perhaps even better sharpness.
Yes you can if you are perfectly happy with a center crop, and in many cases you could be.
expressivecanvas: Looks like Nikon is choosing to behave like Kodak in their last days in the camera business with logic like if you can't make money in the camera business, then try to make money in the courtroom. Perhaps we should be asking whether Nikon is headed down the same road.
Big corporation or profitless sole proprietorship: You create something. Someone makes a look alike that may keep naive grandmothers from buying your product for their grandkids. You do what?
It's cool. That money we spent making things look pretty is excellently spent on someone else milking it for all it's worth.
Make them stop selling it.
I can't believe this is an issue, I really can't.
dr.noise: wowsuch cameravery expandamaze
And on this glorious third of December, Dan_168 was introduced to doge

horushin: Best for selfies? Sony nex 3n.......it has a selfie screen to turn over so you can see yourself before taking pictures....
Most obtrusive camera for food shots at fine dining establishments
Rjansenbr2: I have the same issues with the D610.
If you're serious, were there issues with the d600? If not, and with the extremely minor changes between the two, it would look like Nikon was effectively sabotaging Sigma.
tkbslc: I think we know who the real "Assez" are here.
It works just fine for the 90+% here that don't speak french
Luego: The loud shutter sound is a real turn-off for me. Hopefully Sony will address this in their future version.Listen to this hollow sound of the shutter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmS2fUngz2o:
I dig a loud shutter. There. I said it. Couldn't give a sh!t less about flying under the radar. Haven't had a bride/groom so much as mention it, either.
justmeMN: If you use the big, bulky, depicted adaptor, that defeats the purpose of buying a compact camera.
So, if you use an adapter to use SLR-sized lenses for a package that's the size of an SLR when you need to, and put a smaller lens on when you don't, it makes no sense to have the smaller lens/camera when you don't necessarily need the SLR lenses?
Makes perfect sense. Thanks for talking some into me.
Lee Jay: For it to be useful, it has to be sharp wide open at the long end on high pixel density sensors. If it isn't you might be better off with a sharp 400/5.6 and upresing. If it is, it could be a game changer.
How's that 400/5.6 perform at 200mm?
Your opinion only stands with a teeny tiny narrow viewpoint that this 4x zoom is no more useful than a 600/6.3.
hiro_pro: this should be the kit lens for the Nikon DF. sorry i got caught up in the hype.
i have had great success with tamron and VC. i cant wait to see this in the local shop and give it a try. i wonder if the VC will be enough to hand hold this beast at 600?
anyone want to guess how long this lens will be when racked out to 600?
and how much is a 95 mm polarizer? rhetorical. please dont answer.
As someone who hand holds a 600/4... me. I want to hand hold a 5-6lb camera/lens setup.
Nuno Souto: $2700 for a retro camera that isn't, without an EVF?Thanks for helping me make up my mind, Nikon: Sony A7R, here I come - just the thing to complement my OlyEM5.Buh-bye, Nikon.
For those that have become accustomed to both, a "TV screen". If we were shooting film, our conclusions might be different. People can talk to no end about realism when looking through that window, but as scenes change that subtle turn of a dial and seeing it real time take effect in the end exposure puts those "window" people at a significant disadvantage.
beavertown: Everybody sees this silly overpriced rubbish will go get the M43 cameras.
Nikon is dying.
S, O will survive eventually.
Canon will always play catch up.
Have to agree with Gentleman Jim. Here I am years later and I've still not owned a camera that was better than the Sony a850. And it was lackluster in some areas at release. Color, though... christ. Beautiful.
"A camera with 36mp with no in-body I.S. is nutty"
That's a d800.
"A mirror is a feature, not a handicap"
So is using essentially every lens ever made on your camera. In that instance, the mirror is a handicap.
scrup: Perfect camera for event photography. Subjects will be guessing what camera it is. For all you haters out there, you must drive a Toyota.
You're exactly right. Toyota makes a good value-for-dollar product. This not so much.
SirSeth: Same price as the D800 = many FF cameras that are significantly less expensive, have high resolution, and boast more capabilities. No video will appeal to the elitist users who campaign for fewer features so they can feel good about their club. It looks good? Maybe to some. I think it's a hodgepodge. Lens compatability may be it's special skill. Frankly, I was expecting more than a marketing move. I agree with DPReview--I can't help but thinks this is a bit silly. However, if you have the money and love the look and tactile experience knock yourself out.
Every single full frame camera is an option for the person that doesn't give a s--- about video.
Many at a lower cost.
splendic: There is a market that this camera is perfectly crafted for, who will rightly appreciate and love all of it's features... and even non-features.
A very, very small market.
So, I don't know if this is a "Good for Nikon" for giving that small market a new tool, or "bad on Nikon" in the business sense for 'wasting' time producing something that so few people will buy.
Whether you like or dislike this particular camera, it never hurts anyone to have options.
I think it's a little overboard, myself, but can still appreciate that Nikon is putting it out there.
