...(PART3, and LAST!) TO sell it for at least twice as much the actual price! maybe 350 or 450 €?! ( and God forgive us to think about a good APS 30mm f1.4 like Sigma!!! It would go for some 800€!!! x_X Don't think so? just wait and we will see it in next year!!! ):(
Please do keep bringing us truly amazing optically tele-lenses that cost way more then any mortal can afford! But make it even more so: something like a new 100-400 IS L for 4000€ minimum!!! Why settle for the old price? lets just keep the latest fashion and sell it for at least twice as much as the one before!!!
Sincerely, your long term Disappointed client!
PS: what kind of flowers would you like in 8years?PS2: Thanks for reading!
... (PART2) the others! I do Love competition since it truly is the best way for evolution, who knows, if you are still in business in 5 or 8years(u should read the very recent study that hints about Mr Nikon disappearing in 5Years-and they AWAKE and are MUCH MORE proactive then you and always coming with WAY BETTER AND WAY CHEAPER CAMERAS for the last 2 or 3years!!!) we might start seeing REALLY new and revolutionary cameras AND lenses from you like you did so well in the 80s&90s!
PS: when u finally wake up and make an 50mm f1.8 don't forget to try and sell it for some ridiculous amount like 500€!Also, when finally you make an EF-S 30mm f1.8 (like nikon did many MANY years ago!) make it even worst build then the sweet 50mm f1.8II (that is how u evolved it before!), maybe make it in paper or already pre-fractured plastic! (mine broke the tiny plastic hooks that held in place the main lens group!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!) IT'S ALL PLASTIC INSIDE!!! And...Don't forget to... (end of part2)
Dear Canon, i am a user of ur cameras since film times in 1995, and i still am. Your attitude of lack of real development and advance in last years (since you got comfortable in the top of the sales pyramid year after year!) made me question my choice several times, i was however, like so many many others bound by my lenses in your bayonet! (even if most were from TRULY EXCELLENT Sigma APO and EX series!).however, and lots of people agree with me on this, (and i remember even some friend with the amazing nikon 800 who feel exactly the same and bough a tiny NICE micro 4/3 last month!).In any case, don't worry too much Mr canon, we will not stop having Amazing new cameras and REALLY evolutionary equipment, just like Olympus did with their very last "reflex" and their amazing f2.0 zooms! Or Sigma did with incredible 18-35 f1.8 Lens! or even Mr Sony with their very own and world first mirrorless full frame camera!!!So keep up the BAD work! and just make life easier for... (END PART1)
Get less, pay more!
It even does NOT have aperture ring! or split focus screen, or even as big viewfinder as the F3!!! (Not to mention the price of a good camera those days!)
Higuel: get less, pay more!
Plastek: it even does NOT have aperture ring! or split focus screen, or even as big viewfinder as the F3!!! (Not to mention the price of a good camera those days!)Like i said: get less, pay more!
The whole point of the torch is to carry THE flame! Absolutely no point in taking it unlit! With all this work and expense, the least they could do was devise some kind of safety transparent cover to encapsule it and have it working! Otherwise is simply pointless!
ir Bob: I'd say it's a nice camera, but no focus aids on a camera that accepts all old manual focus lenses really is a big omission. I hope it accepts the focusing-screens of the F3.
it does NOT!
Hadarmil: Ok, I understand that there's lots of old men yearning for the days they still had hairs and teeth, but I fail to get the usefulness of "analog" ISO, exposure AND exposure comp dials. What's the point of a top LCD for? If your eye is on the VF you can see all the info you need and you've got twin dials to change stuff. A single button well placed for changing ISO is all that's left. So they have a tiny top LCD and jumongous dials for the sake of redundancy. And no video... cause this is a camera for "real" artsies! C'mon! Even the oldest fart just might want to take a video of his grand grandchildren demolishing his gear or something. Oh well.
AND you cannot realy focus the old brigth fixed lenses!!!
get less, pay more!
dannyboy5400: Let me fix the Nikon Press ReleaseToday Nikon is proud to present a tool for fools who have more money than sense and a vain ego to match.
and people laughed at Hasselblad! :D
Shamael: 2750$ for the body, for a camera that has nothing to realy offer else than the look. Nikon will never learn. So, good luck with that.
don't worry, the fanboys are already making a line for it!
EVEN ignoring no f ring!!!
yep: pay more for less!!!
wombat661: "as they get older, get married and have babies I expect they will probably want to buy a better camera."
If you want to cater to the new parents crowd, then that better camera would not be a mirrorless. Babies moves very fast you need all the help you can get to get those candid shots. SLR with good focus tracking is very helpful here.New parents thinks their babies will sit still for them to adjust the camera. The optimal window to get the right shot with the right expression is about half a second.Told my in law to get a camera with fast focus. They looked at me like I was nuts. They though babies are so small they do not ever move. A month latter, they told me how frustrated they were with slow focus. Went out and got a SLR.
so, itdoes it better! :)
Plastek: "what will happen if customers start to lose interest" - yea. What if Hype for mirrorless fades out? Sony would be really screwed. But not even nearly as much as Olympus.
same sensor in basically same camera... when will we see the reviews of so many cameras we are waiting for months???
$3,000 for body only for a camera that does less then the others?!? o_O
Mirrorless Crusader: Great photo but you should have flipped it horizontally. The human eye moves naturally from left to right, which is the opposite direction this photo is leading us.
Not The human eye: The eye of those who read from left to rigth!!! And rules are made to be broken!!!Nice photo!
rtogog: This lens is excellent for sure! It is "small" but not pancake style. It will be good additional lens for building a system for Lumix G series, but not for Lumix DMC-GM1. She needs dedicated smaller lens to make it more proportional against its tiny & sexy body. Still salute for Panasonic to keep update their lenses lines.
were do u see the price?
ZhanMInG12: Hooray for all the screwed D600 owners!
Remember when Leica M240s were smashing to the ground because of loose strap lugs? Every camera that got damaged earned a free trip to Solmes, a full CLA and updated warranty. In most countries people received replacement cameras to use during the wait period. Learn something Nikon?
Really nice from Fuji!!! :D
chuirox: The real story here is that little paragraph about access to source code. They got the Acrobat source code, and if you think Acrobat was a dangerous vector before, wait a month or two. PDFs are going to be so toxic that no company in their right mind will be running Acrobat. If ever there was a time for FoxIt, Nuance, or some other PDF software, it's now.
