RichRMA: Kowa lenses look ridiculous. Like cheap accessory wide angle attachments attached to normal lenses.
and unfortunately, NOT small at all!!! o_O
Now the only reasons left to get them will be price and or image quality!!!
UAU!!!!! Now i have even one more way to let getty make money and/or publicity from my images while i get ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!! X)
WAIT!I was totally unfair: I can make 50% out of some 20% which gives at best some woping 10% of what getty says they make...IF THEY DON'T GIVE MY PHOTO FOR FREE FOR ANYONE IN ALL INTERNET!!! YIpiiii!!!!-_-
Zvonimir Tosic: Some photographers that were involved in the CP+ 2014 presentation suggested the new 645D will sport 3fps and ISO 256,000 (aim was 4fps and ISO 400K). Possibly video too. But I agree with posters below, the new lens selection for the 645D is not as comprehensive. But not many new lenses are needed.
as posted above, pentax actually has MORE lenses AVAILABLE NEW then hasselblad!
Hi, were can one see your work then?
bluevellet: The 300mm is bulky and kinda slow for a prime.
But that 7-14 f2.8 zoom is sweet. Finally an alternative to the slower panny 7-14.
tHERE IS ALSO A F2.0 LENS!!!
peevee1: Wow, it is even worse than SL1/100D, which was worse than more than 4 y/o T2i and easily won The Worst DSLR of 2013!
Great, the year just started but we already know the winner of The Worst DSLR of 2014!
HASSY WAS THE FIRST!!!
peevee1: "Designed with a focus on sophisticated optical performance and abundant expressive power"
But will it focus on the subject, or Nikon and Canon will break compatibility again with the next firmware?
READ MORE BEFORE WRITTING UNINFORMED BAD SENSE. PLEASE!
Have a GREAT year!!!
Way to go Sigma!!! Just COMPLETELY BLOW canikon out of the water and people's buys!!!
THANKS Sigma for constinuously IMPROVING your service to your costumers!!!
well, it certainly it's good to have an alternative! But the TWO MAIN REASONS to go mirrorless are less size&weight AND MORE OPTICAL QUALITY, obviously, all them fail miserably in those two parameters!!!
DVT80111: F4F4F4what's the excitement?
@DVT....man, learn a thing or two before writing here! merry christmas to you and get a better mod and attitude! :)
yabokkie: this lens has to be awesome, as good as EF-M11-22 for that's one of the reasons we need mirrorless mount.
@ abortabort: hy, i im a canon user, and got the 10-22 a few months ago, for the first time in my life i wanted to exchange it: the corners at 10mm were really bad with the 70D!!! only at 10mm but that is the focal for wich i bought it!!! (i had the 15-85 IS before!). I went to the shop and was lucky enough that a friend there helped me tested against another sample just arrived from japan(tripod and all, naturally!) there was a very tiny diference... and mine was better actually! I supose that the tests in Photozone.de etc were in lesser demanding sensors! :(
WOAH!!!! WHAT A LENS!!! XDNO ONE makes anything like this!!! And if their other lenses are any prove, it should be very sharp also!!! Amazing work Fuji!!! :D
THANKS SIGMA!!! mr lazzy canon needs some serious competition, especially now that they stopped this lens production in favour of the 24-70f4 wich is so much worst for general shooting!!!Once again: THANK YOU SIGMA!!! :DAt least some brands are still being inovative and giving Photographers not only what they need but even what they dream of XD
Alec: On the one hand, we want Nikon to keep making innovative cameras and lenses, and it needs to be profitable in order to do so. On the other hand, I believe the hypothetical $40 lens cap does not prompt innovation - on the contrary it causes complacency.
What is in our best interest? What is in Nikon's and other makers' best interest? What does the future hold? I have not enough characters left to express that here, but I just did on my O2 blog - see http://karasevstudio.com/o2/2013/155
THE IDEA STANDS lensbeginner!!!But don't let us stop u!!!GO AND BUY SUCH IMPORTANT AND CHEAP LEENS HOOD!!!Actually, if it make u fell better, BUY TWO!!! ;D
paddleleps: Nikon forgets that a customer doesn't really care about whether a repair is in warranty or out of warranty repair. If you make some or all of your income from photography you just want your camera repaired PROMPTLY. In my 30 year experience as a pro, during which I have been primarily (but not exclusively) a nikon I have yet to experience a prompt repair from Nikon. I am not bashing just being honest. The main reason I sought out independent repair was the service I got directly from Nikon was exceedingly poor. Whether you are talking about the 70', 80's 90's or in the 21st century. Bottom line is Nikon just has little respect for their customers. All you have to do is read the post from the fellow who could not get the a nikon service manager on the phone. But could easily do so with canon. KUDOS! to canon. They get it. Their reward will be more customers and a larger market share.
tkbslc, with all due respect: Writte less and Read more and before! Dpreview is actually a VERY GOOD place for it!!! :D
micahmedia: Nikon has survived for far to long on quality alone. It's quite astonishing really. It's time for the parent company to step in and fix the repair and customer support issues.
First: the repair process needs an overhaul. If Nikon is to stop supplying independent shops with parts, they need to be able to handle all repairs themselves. Right now they don't do that in a timely or reliable manner. This has nothing to do with any natural disasters. I've been dealing with the same crap from them for the past 12 years, and the problems last year only magnified the existing inefficiencies. I still never receive a note when a repair is shipped.
Second: fix customer service! Customer service is the first line of defense before cameras go to the repair shop. Customer service is full of bad information and is also set up to treat the customer like a retarded toddler. Customer service exists to identify problems and address them, NOT to insult and píss off customers indiscriminately.
man, did u ever saw ANY movie made after the 60s??? o_O
or... do you know about that old box/new square called TELEVISION???
firemachine69: Some of you folks saying "it's your choice to buy Nikon" holds absolutely ZERO water.
That's like buying your Ford pickup, and after you've been going to your local garage for oil changes, Ford decides only its dealerships are capable of changing the oil, and is now voiding the warranty because you used your independent.
Even in Canada, this falls under the "negative billing" portion of the Consumer Protection Act. Totally illegal. I can't see how the much more restrictive USA would permit this type of stuff...
Class action lawsuit, indeed.
Sure josh 152! ever heard about windows internet explorer???
Case desmissed!!! ;)
(Read more, writte less!)
f311: I don't get the uproar.
Seriously, how can Nikon making the decision to take full control and responsibility of its repair network be a bad thing? If my camera needs a repair I would be pleased to know it's being handled by factory authorized trained professionals.
To that end, exactly what spare parts do so many cry babies here need to buy? Hint take care of your expensive stuff and parts won't break off. Really what parts besides port covers could the average user replace anyway.
And to all the whiners, relax, there will always be some independent guy out there who will be happy to take your money to install questionable ebay sourced junk parts from broken bodies. I'm sure he will also ignore all static discharge protection rules during your repair too.
Good luck with that one.
I'll send my Nikon to Nikon.
Ralph, thanks for being someone who actually knows what he/she is saying, and ABOVE ALL for giving us all TRUE AND VITAL INFORMATION!!!
(some pople forgot that dpreview is about information and NOT "my team is better then urs"!!!
THANK YOU once again!!! :)
shadowless: After 20 years of Nikon, and yes I waited for nikon to come up with the D200 when they where totally not competitive before. Now that Nikon no longer choose to be loyal to the old timer, I don't see the point of why I should continue to support Nikon. I will advice everyone who ask me about camera choice to get Canon from now on.
maybe you want to think that over: i use canon since 98, and they are EVEN worst in this matter! :L
Part1)WAY TO GO nikon!!I supose u didn't liked when analists predicted ur extinction in 5years! IT'S NOT SOON ENOUGH 4YOU!!! Just keep bashing your costumers and making their experience with ur products WORSE!!!That's the way! In my country usually nikon repairs,EVEN during garanty were AND MANY TIMES STILL ARE A JOKE!!! THIS very week a photographer was complaining about it,and had to get repairs from a private "mecanic" where i also go! I was there because my Friend's D80 BRAND SPANKING NEW WITH JUST 200 PHOTOS MADE AND KEEPT WITH SILICA IN PROPER BAG(he is a fully graduated Equipment Designer!) JUST DIED!
