PLUS: D4 sensor inside a compact D600 / retro body. CONS: EVERYTHING else !
PLUS: Zeiss lens ! CONS: MARK 3 is ready for roll out already.
PLUS - VIDEO AF that works on a proper DSLR camera. CONS: A lack of commitment from Canon to produce a decent range of PRIME STM lenses to match.
PLUS: That there are still so many decent camera brands. CONS: That so few will remain in 5-10 years (if any).
PLUS: We make great calculators. CONS: No one buys them anymore as their built in to almost everything, especially Smart (that's why their called SMART) phones.
PLUS: Looking & moving forward with RAW 4K CONS: Silly ugly stupid add on box for GH4.
PLUS: Every six months I want to do something new CONS: Yes , we know - different lens mounts and different micro brands within the brand - how confusing.
PLUS: Our cameras need to evolve CONS: Beyond dust and muck and an attempted cover up - so sorry.
PLUS :Canon speaks to the people ! CONS: But less and less are listening as they go mirror less and Smart Phone...
PLUS: Nice new cheaper OM model. CONS: Perhaps they should speak with their pals at Panasonic about video before bringing out anymore...
PLUS: Hell, its only America - the UK stores are GREAT and I will continue to use them. CONS: Hell, another decent camera shop bites the dust...
A sign of the times - I'm an Apple fan ( I still have a G3 computer) but since Jobs left so did so much that Apple was….
PLUS: Nice new pro spec camera Nikon. CONS: For the birds! Ultra high ISO is near to useless and is at best a marketing tool. Shame on you.
PLUS: Good new camera Nikon CONS: But you've done the dirty on all the D600 users and only legal action is seeing you do anything constructive to help out…..
PLUS: May make Canon bring out a faster EOS-M CONS: Everything else ! Nikon (like Canon) still haven't caught up with the mirror less market place. Perhaps they still believe that it and those troublesome smart phones will go away…..
Alphoid: I'm betting the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 will be sensibly priced. Sigma has made waves by offering lenses much better than OEM -- for less than OEM prices. It's a good strategy.
Lets just hope no focusing. quality issues… sorry Sigma but I haven't forgiven you yet.
I went and bumped into one or two people including Jeff Ascott & Joe McNally. An improvement on last years In Focus Show but a number of side events now cost extra - guess this is to help pay / make a profit from the show…Stand Outs for me ? Panasonic GH4 with 1.2 lens - BUT that add on box to enable RAW 4K is a joke…Canon stand - very interactive / fun ….Fuji with their new XT and new colour skins service…..Will attend next year.
Funny name - but a great idea - Well Pentax !
FRANCISCO ARAGAO: This week I went to a concert wih my camera, there I saw a 2 or 3 more people with cams. All the others were shooting with phones and tablets.
Same as - I still deal in the wedding market - common now to see people using tablets as well as their phones. Folks love them because they can show off their images to their friends stood next to them on a 'big' screen instantly and then upload instantly - both with NIL fuss. The future is NOT with traditional DSLR's….
barry reid: Nothing there to suggest that my decision to drop kick Canon for a Sony A7r was the wrong choice.
Played with / used one today complete with a classic Canon 50 1.4 FD (which I already have) - have to admit I found it complex as I'm used to Canon & Nikon… but there was much to like. Well done Sony!
