Dr Ram: Waiting, waiting and waiting announced, disappointed and again one more time. What it means to be a nature and wildlife photographers and hold D7100? Nikon just added another between 7000 & 300s. There are quality additions in terms of 24mp, ISO, AF sensitivity, 51 focus points, expeed 3 processor and removal of low pass filter (?). But the bigger disappointment is frame speed, extremely low buffer, no CF card slot and no tenpin slot for remote trigger. It does not make sense for sports and wildlife because of 24mp coupled with good ISO range producing big RAW files with mediocre buffer having to content with slow SD cards. How to cope with action shooting when the buffer is full and you miss most of the action? Shoot 6 images in one second, the camera buffers and you wait for 30-40 seconds for the file transfer. Just see that you miss 30x6=180 images (approximate) of intense action and then experience the frustration. I think Nikon is playing with customers.Still waiting for D400!
No, I do not think so, I think it has to be manufactured from the beginning, but not sure.
Ignace: Some background: I'm a proud owner of an old OM system. Bought my first digital (Olympus E-30) last year. Great camera. Ridiculously horrific ownwer's manual--pure garbage.
New to digital, I needed something that a human being could actually understand. Based on the garbage manual, I swore that I would never buy another Olympus camera.
Then, doing research on the Nikon D7000, I noticed the new Olympus EM-5. Based on the exhaustive DPREVIEW, the quality of the pictures is better than any APS-C camera available for comparison! (If I'm correct, the otherwise excellent review should have made this point clearly!)
So, I am seriously considering the EM-5. Before I hit my head against the wall again, however, I wonder if you, more experienced EM-5 users, could help me with some info:
--Is the Owner's Manual actually comprehensible, or another piece of garbage?
--Can anyone confirm that the Leica lenses used by the Lumix cameras are also "AOK" for the EM-5?
Thank you so much!
Sorry, it is Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 I have ordered (I was torn betw. those 2 lenses)
Ignace: I have Nikon D7000 (amongst others) and I do not think M5 is as good for a pixel-peeping high detailed landscape shot, printet out huge, as I often do (D7000 is also iso 100), and the D7000 is better for sports, but the D7000 is not pocketable, and the Olynpus M5 is = I ordered it with the Sigma 30mm, and now I can have a camera with me all the time in my pocket and that counts a lot for me
