Michael S.: Too less for too much money!
Mk III is lightyears behind the D800. Will be intersting seeing the upcoming products from Canon, for sure the Mk III delievers not what so many, including hardcore Canon-fanboys have been waiting for.
Ahhh...so what specific of the words used in my short post has given you the impression I am bashing Canon?The only fanboy here is YOU.
I don't care what brand I am using - if you check - I do have Fujfilm, Leica, Nikon AND Canon.So stop blameing Nikon for as it seems that you are not satisfied with what Canon brought recently on the market.
Oh boy...all those "hate" coming from the Canon guys who can't bear it...
It's almost impossible to imagine how it would have been the opposite - Canon bringing out a Mk III with the specs of the Nikon D800 and Nikon just an update of its D700, like from 5D Mk II to Mk III. I am sure thousands of posts by Canon fanboys will have been posted here and in the NIKON (!) forum to "laugh" about Nikon...
And if your computer can't open Nikon D800s files then get a slightly newer PC then one who is still using a 486 processor!
Too less for too much money!
First "bad" spec that I saw already and can't be ignored even by good IQ the camera might have:
F2.8-5.8 stabilized zoom...
This should have been something like f2.0 - f4.0!
GREAT tool for reportage/sports!
Nothing to be surprised - exactly as leaked a few months earlier...;-)
And THANKS NIKON not taking part in the MEGAPIXEL Race!!!
All those non-pros crying for 36MP in a FX-sized sensor are just a bad joke...
Michael S.: Another (senseless) Video-Lens that hopes to fool enough customers who think they will get an almost (performance like) Leica Noctilux for a small percentage of the costs of the "true" Noctilux.
WHY then a 4/3 and Leica M-lens mount?

As with every large company in the world - the want to keep the payment for the workers as low as possible and therefore go to countries with fully (!) knowing the risk of earthquakes, flooding, turmoil...just to keep their profits high.
Build your cameras in central Europe and that would have never happened...
Must be the 1st of April today...
Sigma now really has gone mad. Hopefully the soon are all on a long vacation...in a very silent, relaxing building with high walls around and lots of men in white clothes.
Puh...price $100,-- to high.
Would be much higher demand with price-tag under $500,--.
stopkidding: Thats ancient news. June 22, 2011? Slow news day at DPReview?
The FIRST News has been a speculation on June 22nd - BUT Dr. Kaufmann from Leica said YES the rumor is correct just yesterday - so NOT old News - read carefully.
Complete nonsense putting such a small sensor in this camera...especially for that price.
Pentax seems to leave the market...
