An interchangeable lens variation of the X2 with built in EVF I think. Hopefully with an updated sensor incorporating phase-detection elements for faster AF - thats the trend now right?
Good! I'm very - very pleased to hear that Lightroom will not become subscription only for the foreseeable future...it was really worrying me, so I'm now extremely relieved by Adobe's clarification on the subject.
Those new editing module features are really what I've been waiting for.
Seems to be an excellent if incredibly expensive lens. 12 grand! wow.
Does this subscription only model apply to Lightroom and Photoshop Elements too, or just the creative suite?
This camera isn't stellar at higher ISO's - which is a bit problematic for me.
I thought the iPhone's camera would perform a lot better than it did here. Overall it seems to be worst than the others.
I don't get it. Why doesn't this new model incorporate the upgraded hybrid image sensor found in the 100D?
Seems expensive for what it is, and I would of preferred a fast wide-angle to short telephoto lens rather than a prime. I'm of the opinion that prime lenses should only be available for inter-changeable lens camera's thus giving you a choice. A fixed prime lens camera doesn't.
Hopefully this useful tech will appear in the upcoming iPhone 5s/6. Foxconn (and apparently in the near future TSMC also) are major Apple manufacturing partners.
BartyLobethal: Even allowing for the fact that 'noise' gets amplified on the interwebs, this issue has made me reluctant to purchase a D600. There is very little useful information in this advisory, although simple acknowledgement of the problem is welcome. I would like Nikon to put a number on it. If they could say, "20% of customers have experienced this issue" or whatever the actual number is, that would at least let us know the scale of the gamble. Even at 20% (I'm just making this number up) I would be more rather than less inclined to go ahead and get one. The main dissuader has been Nikon's silence, and simply not knowing.
You read my mind!
So no Nikon D400 then?
A very interesting and useful gadget!
Oh and the Digital Split Image focus aid brings back memories of manually focusing using the split screen and microprism ring of my old Practica back in the 80s! It seems very appropriate on this retro-styled camera.
This is a very desirable camera now that they've fixed most of the hardware and software bugs. A few caveats remain for me though - the back panel scroll wheels and dioptre adjustment look like they're constructed of very cheap plastic. As well as the vertical one seemingly way too narrow. I would also of liked to have seen the front mounted rotary focus switch seen on their other X-models rather than this side-mounted one. Apart though from those little details, I really like this camera a lot.
These fab photos just reinforce the fact that its the person behind the camera that's important, not the equipment! Impressive.
1500 Pounds for this! Canon a reckoning is coming.
I'm not a videographer, but the spec of this camcorder is very impressive! 16 bit RAW 4K video together with the global shutter feature. Should create beautiful movie footage. More and more lately Sony are coming out with very impressive products.
My favorite types of photography are landscape and macro. So the increased DOF of the smaller sensor, combined with compact size, low weight, ability to change lenses and relatively affordable price, would suit me quite well. But I want to wait for a full review to see how image quality measures up. And hope that down the line Nikon releases a real macro lens for this system.
JohnyP: Looks like a joke to me.
Same price as a gently used f2.8 and same size as some f2.8 zooms in same range. For example Minolta HS G APO f2.8 80-200 is same size and costs less than this f4.
I wish they had something similar to Minolta's famous beercan - 70-210 F4 (Leica design) and price of $150 on used market (which would probably mean $300-600 if it was available new.
I agree, it does look a bit chunky for an F4 but that might be because it has internal zooming.
