AbrasiveReducer: Nikon has repeatedly said they will focus on high profit margin items so no surprise there. But this business of converting dollars to Sterling at 1:1 puzzles me.

Does anyone how much profit a single lens generates when sold for 12k? Canon and Nikon need more competitors. Imagine a car manufacturer wants 30-50 percent more money for next version of a current car model. Noboby would buy it.

In reply to:

DWM: "While large, the D4s' viewfinder still falls short of Canon flagship EOS 1D X as well as the less expensive 5D Mark III."

Really?

How about "The size of the viewfinder is quite large, and in use is essentially indistinguishable from the high end Canons." (Which is clearly the case).

The Canon-centric comparisons get tiresome after a while.

Is that round button an AF-Stop button?

vodanh1982: Wow. the 75mm f/1.8 is the sharpest m43 lens and Sigma made it.

The Sigma 35mm f1.4 is just the sharpest 35mm lens. All macro lenses and all supertele primes are a lot sharper.

A lens without AF is like a car without power steering. It works, but in 2013 nobody will buy it.

About: "No seriously high-end gear."

Do you only mean the gear shown in image that enters the competition or the gear the entry was taken with as well?
