I'm thinking of buying a Canon DSLR just to be able to use this lens :-) I wish Nikon can come up with something similar to this pancake lens.. an auto focusing pancake lens that is :-)

I posted something like this before, what if cameras now offer apps instead? ... Ha! I am a visionary LOL!

36hike: Do us all a favor: If you don't know what the pricing is going to be, hold the press release.

I want it for $299 or less... There... Bow this will sell like hot cakes :-)

for U$D299... I will buy it even if I do not really need it :-) I am looking for a smaller package all around lens :-) ...
although I wish it was an FX/Full frame lens..not a DX(nikon term) or EFS (canon term)..

johnparas11zenfoliodotcom: as a Nikon DSLR user-- I am very jealous of this lens! I hope Nikon comes out with one -- that AF of course (nikon has some pancake lenses but no AFas far as I know)..

(aside from Nikon I also use Olympus m4/3 and Canon p&S, and Fujufilm underwater cam p&s).. just saying..

And the nikon 40mm is not pancake...

So i want to have this leica... And reading the comments of the users... Can i just turn off the Af, and not use the video of my DSLR, ..put the dslr on manual mode...

Say my nikon d90 or d40x... Put a 20 or 24 0r 50mm prime...

Will i also, stop and take time to focus on what i am photographing?

Will such exercise give me the same feeling? Hhhmm...

On article Just Posted: Nikon D3200 preview samples gallery (499 comments in total)

having the Nikon D90 and Nikon D40x..
I am liking this entry level cam..
if only it had the AF motor.. so I can use smaller older Nikon AF lenses like the 50mm f/1.8D..

if it is $599 body only-- I can have 5 of these than one D800 (body only) :-)

i am waiting if there will be a nikon D5200..or the rumored D600 FX ..or a D400..

it sucks that nikon removed the AF motor on their entry level cams..now i am forced to use the bulkier AFS lenses..

3enson: I wanted to ask dpreview, does this new d3200 has built in focus motor?
so there wont be limitation on other nikon lenses... thanx..

i just wish they never removed that focus motor on entry level cams.. sometimes I just want to use those old AF prime lenses (no built in motors) they are smaller and more compact-- like that 50mm, the 20mm .. :-(

plasnu: Better dynamic range than 5d3?

jp1958: This would be the inexpensive wedding camera. People will buy 3-4 of these and have a lens on each one and shoot with flash.

i thought about that... hhhmm.. a good inexpensive wedding camera.. no one needs fast FPS-- weddings are not really action oriented (most of the time) and usually entry level cameras are not that sluggish with AF or shutter lag..for a wedding..IMHO..

I thought that maybe I would want this :-)

i wonder if the existing non-OEM battery grips for the D3100 found on ebay will fit this cam? they seem to use the same battery..

Timbukto: It has wireless flash capability? Something the D5100 doesn't even have??

i thought the built in flash of this d3200 has a master commander mode :-).. if yes that would have been awesome.. and a built in AF screw-- .. I would definitely want this! :-)

if only my Nikon D90-- can do 1080p/30/24fps + 720p/120/60/30/24fps-- it will be a "perfect cam for me :-)

larrytusaz: I would like it if the red-dot movie button could be re-mapped. I don't use movie-mode on SLRs & it would be handy to be able to remap it to ISO or white balance etc, just as you can with the Fn button.

I'm not going on a "SLRs shouldn't have movie modes" rant, it's been almost 4 years & whether I like it or not it's here, and I realize the target market absolutely wants it. Still, the Fn button can be re-mapped, on a model like this that has so few "hot buttons" it would be nice if the red-dot could be as well. (Obviously it would be mapped to movie-mode out-of-box by default.) Other "semi-serious" models like the Olympus E-PL1 I also own allow for this, as do the newer versions of m4/3rds.

And yes--why not Wi-Fi built-in? (One person said "different standards in different countries"--but then how did Samsung figure it out?) Why not have the Wi-Fi unit, or another one like it, that works with not-so-ancient models like the D5100 and D7000 etc?

that red dot movie button-- if a novice by accident-- re mapped it.. then they say their Nikon is broken.. Nikon is trash etc etc...

I must have missed that part about it having wireless capability.. Like nikon CLS system? Please point it to me or to us in the specs or press release... Thanks..
