Lensjoy: The schematic of the sensor layout looks wrong to me. The eye is most sensitive to green, and least sensitive to blue. If wanting to capture maximum luminance resolution, the green layer in the middle of the stack should have the highest resolution, not the blue layer.
DonSantos: wow. worst design I've seen in a long time.
The grip was designed specifically for those with Marfan's syndrome to avoid knuckle scratching on the lens.

"OK, we'll just swing this side out unnecessarily"
retartedcanuck: USB 2.0? Really?
Yes! Data transfer is going to eat up all the time I would normally spend posting shallow complaints on the internet! WTH?!
jaygeephoto: I knew my Fujica ST 801 would fine it's way home again! It was always such the orphan child of cameras except when it out-shined camera costing 3 times as much with it's image quality. Go Fuji!
What does a film body have to do with image quality?
There's not a whole lot to go from in the photo, but it looks to me like the df and the a7r had a fuji lovechild
JESUS SONY CAN YOU NOT DO ANYTHING RIGHT?!!
Did I about cover it?
kimchiflower: Assuming it's optically excellent (which I have little doubt that it is), I think that's a fair price..... Unless you buy it in the UK, obviously.
I'm clenching in anticipation of the announced price of the m4/3 Leica 42.5mm f/1.2
Lenses are exactly proportional to the square of the focal length divided by the aperture now. Go buy your Nikon 6mm/2.8 now! This math says $2! That's a 99.99875% savings!
Ridiculous assumption on yabokkie's part here.
Muus: Dear DPR staff, this may be nitpicking, but: 1/4000th sec is not maximum but minimum shutter speed. Please.
That's not even completely right. The literal speed of each curtain is constant unless I completely misunderstand how shutter timing works. Which is possible.
In the end, though, not a soul was confused by the terminology used. Find something better to do, Muus
Mike in Taiwan: I want to hold one in my hands and try it before making a judgement, but I hope that the weathered Nikon nameplate is not present in production models...that's lame.
I'm pretty sure he's taking the reflections in the photo at the top of the page - in the inlaid Nikon logo - as "artificial wear" to make it look used.
I enjoy the Nikon 610 being on this list.
If only every manufacturer could massively **** up a product and rerelease it under a new number we could literally have hundreds of new models each year! :)
Jim: None of them. My vote goes to the G1X.

Raist3d: How about voting for more than one? Most of these lenses are really good. I would vote for the Pentax limited zoom. The Olympus 12-40 m4/3, and the fuji xf 23 only because I know what to expect better from ten than the other but the others look good too.
Ha. Create multiple accounts, vote all you like!
samhain: I'm picking based on which one I'd choose if given the option- and I'd choose the Nikon 58/1.4 over all the others.
I'm suprised it scored so low Tbh- for me, there's no question as to which of those lenses is the most desirable.
No, there is no question which is most desirable to you. You've now told us.
Tonkotsu Ramen: now how about firmware updates for all your other products sony?
Actually- almost all of them. Unless there's a good hardware-related reason the newer jpeg engine can't be rolled out to some (at least recent) cameras.
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.
