On Nikon D600 Hands-on Preview preview (718 comments in total)

Canon, still king of the dslrs, however the Fuji pro sensor blows everyones doors off, RAW or jpg. I can't believe how bad sony looks.

Wow, a new use for my cottage cheese containers, I'm gonna be rich. This is stupid.

No viewfinder? What are they smoking? And the price? good grief.

Interesting to see this here, but I'll stick with my Fuji x100

TS lenses, especially wide angle one, are redundant in the digital age. Photoshop does an admiral job of correcting converging verticals, and what the heck would you use tilt for on a 24mm.

I'm an x100 owner and had higher hopes for the xPro1. I'd hoped Fuji had listened and learned. Obviously not.
Why are there bugs at all? Heads need to roll at Fuji

Your Nikon 14-24 compared to the 18mm Zeiss
http://www.luminous-landscape.com/reviews/lenses/distagon-18mm.shtml

Autofocus, electronic coupling, equal image quality, and a range of focal lengths that would require 3 Zeiss lenses to match. Only the amateur gear weenies buy ridiculous stuff like these Zeiss lenses, and only because it says Zeiss on it. Same as when there was the Contax/Yashica. I remmember the tests showing that there was nothing special about the Zeiss lenses except the price.

Good grief, how long can Zeiss rely on their name to sell their clunky, overpriced, and often inferior products to gullible amateurs. Tests comparing their lenses to the Canon and Nikon counterparts show that these lenses do not live up to their hype.

duartix: I...see...dead...pixels.......

Amazing, why is this sensor and technology not available in a camera?
I don't own a smartphone, but have been tempted to get an iphone just for the convenience of the camera, but I will hold off now.

And what a delightful change to have decent sample photos clearly taken by a proffesional instead of the crap we see from the likes of Fuji. (and I'm a x100 owner)

djsphynx: First sentence seems to be missing something... roughly what?

what a disaster. I wouldn't touch this with a ten foot pole. A smaller sensor than 4/3? gimme a break. Sony's going to blow you out of the water.
Nikon must have done market research, but it seems to me that the small sensor defeats the whole idea.
Give me fast small prime lenses and a large sensor. Fast autofocus and response sounds good, but I'll stick with my x100 for now.

In reply to:

rondom: Anyone with any information on the shutter noise?

So what is with the stupid 24mp sensor, does ANYONE out there want 24mp? I dumb my 5d11 down to 9mp most of the time as I just don't want to deal with those huge files. Give me about 10 or 12mp and another stop of low light capability.

Looks like a great alternative to my lovely but oh too sluggish x100, but only if they intoduce some fast primes f2 at least, but hey, why not f1.4?
