Just curious, does anybody really use f2.8 on a 300? to me that's a big price to pay for one f stop.
The 10-18 should be OK judging from other STM lenses, I was debating buying a Tokina 11-16/2.8, this may change my mind.
This is a prize wining photo!
I checked Russar lenses on e-Bay and they are priced in the $500 and up range.
I knew you guys would have a field day with this and I don't blame you.
On a positive note, they are good photographs.
Ben Herrmann: CAUTION: Be very careful - I just did the firmware update for the Nikon P7700, and now, 3rd party batteries no longer work. The camera will not respond to any of the 3rd party models that I have - including the Wasabi's that are superior. Once you turn off the camera (after firmware update), it will not start up again with a 3rd party battery (at least in my case). But it will function just fine with Nikon batteries. Way to go Nikon!!!! You Tu_ds....another way for you to make an extra buck now having to buy your batteries exclusively.
Same here on my D5100, Third party batteries don't work.
stefanosensolini: Nikon begin in photography making copies of Contax cameras, adopting theyr optical coupling tooand Canon making copies of Leica Cameras, optical coupling too; not so glorious or not?after all they were from Japan, not Germany, and Japanese at that time were famous for copy not create.They did it so well that they at the end replaced the originals.
Not everything that comes from Japan are copies except Lexus that copies Mercedes Benz model for model!
Are you kidding? Mark Newson again, didn't he get the message the first time, camera design are not his forte!
Excellent! you deserve first place.
Another overpriced gadget (12.?MP) from Leica, other brands outperform the L-c at a fraction of the price.
I think this will be a nail in the coffin for some existing systems!
Didn't Leica have something like this for their R-System?
I'm I wrong or is the price $1100 for the A plus $450 for a OVF plus $195 for a filter adapter? that totals $1745, one can buy a heck of lot of camera for that kind of money.
That looks more like a Renault 4CV than a VW!
I'm surprised at all the belly aching I'm reading here, coming from a D70 for me the D7100 is a big improvement, I was set on buying the D7000 but for $300 more I'll take this one.
I'm not in the market for this lens but I'm glad to hear the positive comments about Sigma, I have four Sigma lenses and haven't had any issues with any of them.
I don't find it ugly, the K-01 now that's ugly and the Canon M is a poor excuse for a Mirrorless, the fact that one can buy an NEX6 for $100 more this V2 doesn't stand a chance.
a Sony RX-1 with interchaneable lenses.
They could at least have made it a FF!
