Wonderful picture!! But applying some rectifications to level the building in the background would make it even better!

Not exactly. It was rather a response to Bombastic, who wrote "Last I checked, crops don't come for free either." I could have adressed that more clearly...

I wasn´t reacting to the OP, I was reacting to the very replies on my defense of the advantages of a crop mode (or at least to what I thought were replies to my posts, that is).
And yes, you can purchase an extra body for APS-C if you want to. Instead I prefer to have the APS-C body built in as an extra option and save the money for another lens...

"I mean, it's a nice feature to have, "

That´s about all I claimed, but even that some tried to deny here.

"but I'd take a lens over an extra few frames a second"

Depends. I bet you´ll be glad to have some extra frames when shooting a soccer game. A lens will never make up for that loss of FPS.

"and losing half my sensor data."

If you missed the right moment nobody cares about your sensor data...

Are you guys really that stupid or are you just acting?
@Ran Plett
You said: "By that logic, why not just walk around with a 40mm pancake lens and crop into a 2000mm equiv. image?"
If I got a 20 Mpx FF body and crop to APS-C there are still 10 Mpx left, which is plenty for most demands. Nobody ever talked about cropping to 2000mm equiv.
"What if you want the extra reach AND the ability to crop?"
It´s as silly as complaining that instead of 1 option you got 2 options-- just because 3 options isn´t available.
@Quisquis
"Why are we talking about "high speed crop" as if it isn't just an in camera crop of the frame? Because it shoots faster?"
Bingo! At least the Nikons do...And the buffer will host twice as much frames, just as your memory cards will. Ideal for sports.
Sometimes reading before talking also saves time and space!

I´m just saying that it´s better to have in-camera high speed crop than to have not.
1.) You can switch it off if you have it but don´t need it. But you can´t switch it on if you don´t have it but need it.
2.) It doesn´t weigh ANYthing and it costs...well I don´t know.
3.) The main advantage is: It boosts FPS and buffer, if implemented in a smart way. This comes in handy in situations where you usually don´t need all the resolution but need FPS and buffer (sports).

The Nikon high-speed crop is a wonderful idea! Yes, it comes with tradeoffs, but often you don´t need all the resolution but need more speed and reach. I miss that on my Canons!

@Ross the Fidller You said: "So I guess if your father beat you about your head you would then do the same to your son?"

Your statement forces me to draw some lines here, since in the end you imply that I support physical violence exerted on children (now THAT´s what I call rude!).
First my "violence" wasn´t physical, second it wasn´t even violence (not even name calling was engaged), third I don´t talk to defenseless and dependent children here.
So please stop your hypocritical whining about political (or whatever) correctness here...

Pt. 2:
Days after this shock I still remained in some sort of denial, silently attributing ignorance and pretention to him. But it kept working within me, and as this phase weakened, I took a closer look into the book he gave me. All in all it took me years to understand what I was seeing and reading there. This experience led to the awakening of my artistic consciousness and conscience.
I´m far from being a renowned artist still, but at least my (best) work (not talking about commercial here) bears essence and authenticity now. Things that don´t matter much in the realms of challenge-oriented amateur photography. Art is not about being nice and slapping each other´s backs in some isolated community. Art is a lonesome fight to bring out your very own voice.
In hindsight I´m glad I had the opportunity of being attacked that way. It would have taken me much longer to leave my comfort zone without it.

@Buzz Lightyear @Dutch
Thank you for your replies and for your efforts to treat the subject in an unbiased way.
Allow me to tell a short story:
1985, as I was about twenty-two (having been an "amateur" for 5 years or so) I walked into the most renowned contemporary art photo gallery there was (there weren´t too many) in Vienna, Austria.( http://www.jmcfaber.at/)
Having won some national and regional challenges already, I thought it was easy to have my "work" exhibited there. After having shown my stuff to the owner his reaction was pretty rude. He wasn´t even trying to be polite.
Before he almost threw me out he gifted me an illustrated book on the history of contemporary art photography and asked me to come back not before having understood that art was all about THRUTH.
(continued in pt.2)

@Azaleamannen
You don´t know the requirements of a commercial assignment, do you?
It´s all about what the customer wants and what he expects that HIS customers want. Often jobs require to find the lowest common denominator. SEDA is not Vogue. And if you can´t see the ironic double bottom of the concept calculated here, then, well...

"no gallery to show what an "advanced" photographer he/she is..."
www.headrooms.net
Don´t browse it on a mobile phone. The website technology is 13 years old and, being a one man show, I didn´t have time/passion to upgrade to responsive...

And, btw, I doubt that ANY advanced photographer has a gallery on dpreview...

Ok, sorry , might be that you are a beginner. Doing copies of Rembrandt or Vermeer from 400 years ago then maybe is challenging (just as depicting macro flowers with unsharp background and all this ever same clichee stuff...)
Still you COULD have saved the pic if there was anything alive in it, espcecially a credible expression.
Technically just advanced beginners level (the greenish grads on the right side of the face are rather expressionistic (unvoluntarily I assume), and artistically it simply lacks freshness, credibility and energy. Don´t mind my rudeness, it could help you grow!

In reply to:

mosc: 50 lines per mm from a 36x24mm sensor is 1800x1200 = 2.16 MP. Did somebody miss a zero there? They saying 500 lines per MM? That's 216 MP.

18:40 time in the announcement video.

50 lines is a specific MTF readout. It describes how high the contrast between the lines at this spatial frequency is, not resolution!

On article What difference does it make? Sony uncompressed Raw (618 comments in total)
In reply to:

Francis Carver: If it is wholly uncompressed, it is obviously "RAW." So, "uncompressed RAW" is sort of redundant.

@ Francis Carver: RAW is not a synonym for uncompressed or lossless (all three categories are independent) but rather for unPROCESSED...
I didn´t get the point of your statement at all: " If it is UNcompressed -- why is it RAW? How about just this: "uncompressed."HINT: JPEG is NOT UNcompressed."
I guess you´re still confusing things:
RAW is ONE thing.
Compression is ONE thing.
Lossless is ONE thing.

Compressed and lossless is NOT necessarily contradictive!
The LZW compression on TIFF-files for example IS lossless...

In reply to:

forpetessake: Every company (modulo Olympus) is going to release FF cameras. The falling prices of the sensors and electronic parts are pushing the market in that direction. We'll eventually see all sorts of FF cameras -- compact and large, cheap and expensive, with fixed and interchangeable mount.
Despite what the uneducated people believe, the size-weight characteristics of the lenses aren't significantly affected by the bigger sensor.

@forpetessake
I just can´t believe that your statements are anything but a joke...
