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.

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!
