Deleted-pending: One reason I would never buy such a small camera : you are holding the lens and not the tiny camera !It looks like a sheet of paper holding a metal tube.
If you're one-handing a 70-200 2.8... you're doing it wrong.
cseiler: $399 ????!!! Whouahahahahahahahhhhhhaaaaahahah...
What do they do? Cut the mount out of Rebel bodies?
Because some might want Rebel T3 capabilities with the option of not necessary lugging DSLR bulk around? Is that really so hard to understand?
I enjoy my NEX on my 600f4. Obviously I'm a retard.
Hey does this have a waist strap?!
Suhas Sudhakar Kulkarni: Nice Camera!Now, where is my sports lens, Nikon? You promised one at the time of 1 system launch.
Why is Nikon limiting to 110mm? If we get something 220mm (35 mm equiv of 600mm) VR then this combination (with v2) will be good for sports. FT1 adaptor has quite a few restrictions so not suitable for moving subjects.
I have a 600mm lens and it's generally far too long for sports.
JonSr: why make a toy camera look so serious. put a hello kitty outfit. neutered loser of a product that should shame any nikon badge owner.
Less than $10, depending on which one you want to buy.
However, if you want the real, Nikon brand patches they'll run you a bit more.
Heh. You may be backinthegame, but it looks like you missed that point.
Zoltan Csuka: This is simply put a horrible looking mutant design. It's not even funny. The viewfinder housing looks like a screwed-on multipurpose accessory that could fall off anytime. Huge step back from V1, not even mentioning Nex 6/7.99.9% of DPreview forum members could do better...
Damnit. Just realized I missed my last humping committee meeting
Glen Barrington: I'm getting less and less interested in the newest cameras. WHAT do the camera manufacturers think they are doing? I still love photography, it's the cameras I hate.
Then... uh... get off dpreview and go take some photos
VivaLasVegas: This is my third day looking at this latest release in hopes of purging my intial easthics impression. No change, it is such a fugly piece of plastic, sorry. Its getting uglier everyday I look at it.
Yeah, but the V2 isn't going to give me VD
There may be a number of things that I don't like about the 1 system as a whole, but I have to admit that I am torn between finding this particular model totally ugly or completely adorable.
For some reason it reminds me of a good friend's miniature shnoodle.
rekky: $224 for a tripod collar? You have got to be kidding me!
Tripod collar? This is an f4 lens. Are you afraid of the tripod mount ripping out of the bottom of the camera?
Lucas_: Why wait if you can have it all with an A99 in a couple of weeks and for a lower price?I know, it comes from a house appliance and Pro video manufacturer..., which coincidentally is making the best image sensors in the world and most camera manufacturers ( but Canon... ) are buying them! Also, you have lots invested in other mounts' lenses. Well, good luck then!
Some just need to prop themselves up. If he is dead set on using MF Zeiss lenses, why does he care about AF points? [slow waist-level jerking motion]
A stop of ISO performance here, stabilized AF Zeiss primes there. You don't want it. I do. Case closed.
RGBCMYK: Now I love my NEX-7
I loved mine yesterday.
fenceSitter: I guess we have to be grateful that Sony pretends to be listening at last, but this update for the NEX-7 is disappointing nonetheless.
The bracketing is still useless because you can't combine it with delayed shutter or remote, so you can't use it with long exposure times on a tripod. Have these people never taken pictures themselves?
And why they didn't take the opportunity to let the user re-assign the movie button instead of merely disabling it?
I guess it would have been hard work. This update looks like a cheap and half-assed quick fix, the sort of thing that I'd come up with after one afternoon to pacify the customer "until the real thing comes along."
Having had to wait almost one year for this "update" doesn't elevate my opinion of Sony very much.
I did read carefully.
*You* can bracket all that you want using those crazy things at the ends of your arms, meaning that the options really are: remote OR delay OR camera bracketing OR remote with operator bracketing OR delay with operator bracketing OR operator bracketing with remote delay. All equally feasible, particularly with bracketed long exposures.
Kuturgan: WHEN Bracketing - the ±3EV UPDATE FOR NEX-5N??? WE ALSO NEED IT SO MUCH!!! THE CAMERA IS JUST AN EXPENSIVE TOY WITHOUT THIS USEFUL FEATURE.
So... you're telling us you bought an expensive toy.
I just have trouble understanding what some people are thinking when they buy things. You bought a camera with ±1EV bracketing right? Do you go to a car lot and pick up a Dodge pickup figuring the manufacturer will install extra cup holders later? Because without extra cup holders, the truck is obviously just an expensive toy.
Also: Your caps lock is stuck on. Just FYI
meanwhile: My A35 feels unloved by Sony.
As a third party observer, I don't see any evidence of him "talking down" to you.
Your comment is easily taken as "why no love for the a35?", which he answered in full.
We are to believe, then, that when you take long exposure photos the little wheel that you put your finger on to change shutter speeds suddenly stops working?
I'll agree though: reassigning the video button would have been tops.
chadley_chad: Well I hope they bring out a bracketing update for all models; just because I chose a NEX-C3 over the 5, doesn't mean I should loose out should it ... for what is simply a software update and my biggest bugbear with the NEX range (and the reason why I still keep my Samsung NX11 as its bracketing function is damned good!)
I'd uncross your fingers and keep your samsung.
Kukaduro: The Pontiac Aztek of the cameras!
Oh now that's just outright mean. Buick Rendezvous at worst!
magneto shot: so this is the heart of the hassey culture...duh i tot they have real technical advantages....
