phoenix15: Sony Sensor ?
If yes it would be interesting to see that the sensor DXO mark could probably jump to much higher ranks beyond all other XXD and XXXD models....
giliath: Seems like an awesome uwa. But please! I need native iso100 for landscape photography!
Manufacturer cannot provide features doesn't mean people don't want them. I think giliath's concern is reasonable.
thx1138: Here is a hypothetical interview with Nikon:
Q: I see this camera uses a 16MP sensor, from the D4, so this must be a flagship sensor too.A: No actually the sensors of the D610 and D800 are much better according to DxOQ: Ah but this low res must allow this camera to shoot very fast, 10fps or better.A: No, actually it shoots at 5.5fps slower than our D610Q: Hmm, but it must have class leading shutter speed, 1/16000A: No, actually it same as our entry level cameras at 1/4000Q: Ummm, err, oh yeah, well it must have the flagship AF system rightA: No, actually it has same AF as D5300 and D610, middle of the roadQ: Ah, but it must have old school battery life and run forever out in the wildsA: No, actually it has a very small battery with below average number of shotsQ: Well it must be very cheap then, cheaper than D610?A: No, actually it is much dearer.Q: Ok, then what is the point of this camera?A: To get old farts to part with a lot of money to relive old time memories.
That's a good one
Man, I'd rather buy Canon 6D + 24-70 f2.8 II + EX 580 II + something else may still be cheaper than this ...
