AbrasiveReducer: Many Leica products are great, even if Ken Rockwell says so. There have also been some dogs but at the prices asked no one is going to admit it.
If Ken Rockwell says something that is true, does it automatically become a lie?
Great, a waste of time camera to document a waste of time space boondoggle. Still no cure for cancer.
So now you're stuck with a lemon. Too bad. Just think what else that money could have bought.
Because breaking the laws of physics is cool and trendy.
This is too much like shooting fish in a barrel. Nikon fail at everything they do.
Oh wow, Nikon still think they're relevant. Didn't need to read the article or see the images to know that, though.
billorg: Who cares?
Nikon fanbois, apparently. Just like Apple fanbois, only they enjoy sticking their lenses in where they're not welcome as well as bragging about their purchases.
Glad to see my already low opinion of Nikon is fully justified then.
So Nikon are leaving their legion of loyal DX users out to dry?
Michael Uschold: Hmm, no penalty for 24 vs. 12 megapixels? What about reduced frames per second due to more processing needed, what about more noise at high ISO due to pixel density. Come on guys, you know better.
It certainly seems an odd combination of features. Surely 24MP would be of more use to a pro than an amateur, yet it's missing exposure bracketing? More of a marketing exercise I think.
From the criticism here it seems my work is done :)
Epitaph_pmr: Any bets on what it will cost?14k?
Too much. Nikon are getting desperate now.
At least he wasn't using a Nikon. We should be grateful for that at least.
Wubslin: Are Nikon even trying any more?
'You may not have handled the p3x0 series either.'
Well, you're right about that.
But nothing else.
Sam has pretty much nailed it as regards Nikon. I think the best thing would be for the company to be dismantled and the money given back to the shareholders.

Wubslin: Plastic mounting. Variable maximum aperture. Unreadable focusing scale. Ineffective VR. Ridiculous over-complicated optical formula to try and compensate for their inability to design a sharp lens. FAIL.
Canon is the market leader. That's all there is to it.
I'm flattered. But I know what to expect from all the other Nikon lenses, so it's not exactly a radical prediction that this one will also be a failure.

Thsoft: Still waiting 1080p with 60fps
Still waiting for Nikon to do this 5 years later and claim they invented it.
