Tap0: Priced way too high. Nikon seems to be following Canon when it comes to pricing nowadays.
Yea $700 would be MUCH more realistic. This lens needs to be very very very very very very sharp, corner to corner sharpness wide open to sell for $900. Thats still a stretch.
Though it is a 1.2 lens....I dont know.
jakeman: I don't really understand how someone could buy a $1000 camera with no viewfinder in 2013
Citrontokyo, are you saying the oly kit lens(17mm or 14-42) are better vs the the fuji 18-55(neither are not)? Also are you implying that oly color is better vs fuji color(impossible to say, i enjoy both)? Also, i believe I like the style of the xe-1 vs the ep-5 any day.
NevilN: The $1449 package includes the new VF-4 EVF.
Yep....a free VF4 if you add up the cost of the 17mm with the camera. Decent deal
snowboarder: So is it really gonna work for micro 4/3? More and more compactcameras will show up with full frame and they are stuck witha small sensor...
WHEN it happens, then oly will have to figure out something, right now they are just going along with business as usual. Im patiently wating for someone someday to release a full frame mirrorless with some high quality 24 F2,35 F2,50 F2,85 F2. Done and done.
roy5051: Strikes me that Adobe are cutting their own throats. Does this mean that CS6 will be updated with all the new camera RAW facilities ad infinitum, or will the updates only be vailable to those who rent the newer system?
im curious as well
So its a XZ-2 in a pentax body. Im not seeing the big deal here. Oly licensed there lens design to Pentax. I would pay the exra 50 bucks and get the XZ-2 most likely.
Well thats sad, in the phone industry, HTC has made the first with EVERYTHING.First 1ghzFirst dual coreFirst 4inchFirst 4.3First 5 inchFirst quad coreFirst 720p screenFirst 1080p screenPlus HTC really puts out some nice products. They are usually lacking something...SD card, or battery or something.But they always keep things fresh.They are the driving force of the industry believe it or not.
phoozy: Impressive high iso pictures.
The 18mp sensor is by no means bad. It just hasnt really improved though the years. I had the 7D and i loved the output. They just dont seem to be going anywhere with it in regards to DR or anything. Its just the same ol same ol.
Im guessing looks just like the 700D and 60D and 7D and 600D and...EOS M*shrugs*
These shots look great! if its street price is around $1200 it would sell really well.
Everyone need to remember in regards to size. It has internal zooming.
isnt this the new RS sensor?
Wow, 1.8 zoom with internal zooming! Crap, thats nuts!
Peiasdf: Wow, this is real. I thought someone created a bad rumor. Wish it is FF
kimchiflower: Good grief! That's a disproportionately large chunk of glass on that camera.
some mirrorless lenses just cannot be smaller. considering the faster aperture of this lens i dont think it looks bad at all. I'd take this over sonys 55-210 anyday of the week!
I bet the IQ on this is going to be great(if the 18-55 shows us anything)!
Bali_Mirage: Wonderful.........crashing on startup.
photogeek: Still no GPU acceleration. Epic fail.
but it would still help. But you would have to have a pretty old pc/laptop to have problems handling lightroom, or one that you just really need to clean up. Also, if you at all are insterested in photo editing , you would need a pc with a dedicated GPU, or the intel 4000, the 3000 is sucky. But i have a 4 year old laptop that breezes through lightroom 4.
Isit13: Too bad it is not a constant F4, that way the price would have been more in the affordable amateur territory, and smaller size.
That 100-300 f4 is a Great lens!
