whtchocla7e: Who is Zeiss trying to fool here with these offerings?

According to the reviews out for them, they are actually excellent lenses. The build quality is on a very high level as well.

On Nikon UK offers summer cashback on 1 system cameras article (50 comments in total)
In reply to:

jkoch2: What's the difference between "cash back" and "price cut." The only distinctions I can imagine is that a lower price would also mean lower tax, and would benefit any buyer. The "cash back," on the other hand, presumably does not affect the tax on the gross price, and would not benefit those who fail or forget to apply for the rebate, nor those who return the camera.

Odd that so few manufacturers offer 1" sensor cameras, other than the Nikon 1 or the Sony RX100.

For a compact point and shooter it makes a lot of sense, for a camera system, not so much sense.

I think we will see more people move up to 1inch sensors in the point and shoots. A lot of camera makes are loosing money by selling 1/2.3" sensored p&s.

JEROME NOLAS: So that's why we still don't have a decent APS-C compact?

Qianp2k,

For the price, the sl1 should have the 60D's inards, not the t4i's.

zenpmd: A lot of people were hoping it would be focus peaking, but its not, and so the suspicions are confirmed that the processor cannot handle it. Glad I got rid of my XE1!

I dont think this is the update everyone has been waiting for.

Lee W: Just tried the XE-1 with new 1.05 firmware. Autofocus certainly no faster with the 35mm 1.4 as claimed :(

Marty4650: Fuji must be following the Microsoft business plan.

They seem to be very fond of marketing products full of bugs, then releasing lots of firmware upgrades ("Service Pack 2?).

Does "Version 1.05" mean that this is the fifth firmware upgrade for this relatively new camera? If so, it makes you wonder why they didn't do a better job testing the camera before release.

Fuji might want to consider making firmware updates into a subscription service. Each time you connect your camera to your computer it checks with headquarters and automatically installs this week's upgrade. The concept seems to be working well for Adobe. :)

Marty, maybe the testing process for the new lens af algorithms was not complete at the release of the camera. Everything has to be tested and re tested and tested again. They could have not released this(like most companies) and no one would have complained. The could have made this a "new feature" on an upcoming camera(like oly and panny do). But they decided to improve the current cameras out instead of releasing new cameras every year.

FW updates are good. No matter how small. Lets everyone know that the camera is still getting some love.

devlin2427: Weirdly enough being the best entry level mirrorless doesn't warrant a gold award.

@Abortabort
It would have been nice to have the PDAF sensor in the 3N, Im sure thats what he is meaning.

flickr is just an easy way to steal images.

Want a wide angle shot of a barn that looks good. Search for nikon 14-24 lens. Im sure youll find a barn you like, poof that image is now in some book that you wont know about.
I found one of my baby goose pics in a book and the author told me to screw myself and that the image wasnt copyrighted.

Water marks are easily removed or cropped out.

meh

In reply to:

Mescalamba: I would only add, that Sony ZA 24-70/2.8 SSM dont have stabilisation for simple reason that Sony system doesnt need it. Should be noted there that all Sony dSLTs and dSLRs have built in stabilisation system, so every lens on it is stabilised (as long as camera knows there is lens on it and it has proper focal length in chip coded).

So simple "No (stabilisation in camera body)" would suffice.

Gesture, i agree, sensor shift shines more at the telephoto end vs the wider side of lenses. So having the choice is good.

Wow....Very nice lens at a very nice price!

PhotoKhan: Microsoft is, indeed a bullying gorilla (...like Apple, like Adobe, like...)

How could they ever come up with that described blatant violation of YouTube's Terms of Service and their API Terms of Service in such naive, cretin way?

Isn't there a single soul inside MS that participates in those endless, endless meetings that can't go "We can't do this" without running the risk of being immediately labeled a "non-team player" and getting a ticket for unemployment?

I tell you guys, this wonderful new IT world is sadly, recurrently and increasingly proving to be the dirtiest, non-ethical business activity EVER.

yep, people dont care no more. Then want to get in, make money and run.

In reply to:

thx1138: Here's a tip Olympus, be the first manufacturer to make a high quality water proof camera, with superior optics and RAW output and you'll take that segment of the market over. The IQ of the tough series is third rate.

Yep a waterproof XZ-2 would rock!

jonikon: Although this 32mm f/1.2 lens is no doubt a stellar lens, it is also an outlier in terms of price compared to other Nikon CX mount lenses for the Nikon 1 cameras. On the plus side, at least all the other Nikon 1 lenses are reasonably priced, and most Nikon 1 owners can easily live without this lens, and purchase the superb 18.5 f1.8 for a mere $200 instead. I doubt Nikon will sell many of the 32mm f/1.2 at this lofty price, but it is nice to know that Nikon is committed to making excellent lenses for the Nikon 1 cameras. The future of the Nikon 1 system is looking brighter all the time!

10.8-11 vs 12.4 in DR is....a decent difference.

Sonys sensor beats many of the 1.5x sensors in everything BUT low light.

While i do agree comparing the master piece sensor sony made vs the nikons is very very very wrong. The N1 system has alot of potential. Focusing is the key that Nikon actually got right. No other mirrorless can focus like it. I don see another focusing like it for atleast another year. Once that happens, if they havent gotten there crap together, they are dead in the water.
Focusing speed is the N1's saving grace, take that away, you got just another mirrorless BUT with a small sensor. If fuji, samsung, canon or sony gets focusing down(like the current nikon 1 series) it'll be close to game over for nikon.
