_P: If by any chance Sigma marketing is sweeping through forums in order to gather hints for product demands then I'd suggest next Prime Art lent to be 135mm/2 or maybe even /2.8

Any supporters? :)

@kribee2: I don't see how Nikon's 135 f/2 DC is a bad lens. Moreover, there's possibly a 135 f/1.8 coming soon from Nikon.

peevee1: Nikon 58/1.4 just lost all its market.

Wasn't one of the goals of the 58 f/1.4 to perform well with light sources in the frame wide open (which it does, seemingly)? I have yet to see the Sigma in that scenario.

meanwhile: 9 pictures and not one of someone actually *gripping* the camera?

Came here to say that. This is, from what I read, the most questionable thing about this camera, and looks like we have to wait for an actual review.

Gaëtan Lehmann: In “for larger less such as the XF 55-200mm”, “less” should probably “lens”.

I would be interesting to have a comparison of the focusing speed of various cameras. I remember to have been impressed by the focusing speed of the olympus two years ago, and not so impressed by many others. I wonder how fuji AF compares to olympus AF.

Do Fuji still have misconceptions about AF?
I mean I used an older model a while ago and it had a very strange behaviour - switching to Continuous AF made the camera begin tracking focus when 'idle' and then locked it when the shutter is half-pressed - is it just me, or this is counter-intuitive? This was an old-ish, compact bridge-type model, but I've read it's the same with more recent ones.

Dual core Core i5 at 1.3 GHz and just 4 GiB of RAM (for the standard configuration) sound to me a bit shabby for serious photo processing.

HeyItsJoel: How about that. A Mac vs. Windows debate in a Photography forum.

I bet somewhere in a Computer forum, they're debating Nikon vs. Canon.

Glad you didn't word it 'Mac vs. PC'.

JEROME NOLAS: Samsung makes very good cameras (I have some) but this one is almost as ugly as Nikon V2 camera...

It's a matter of taste, really.

Jogger: What's the point of RAW on a 13+ mp sensor the size of a pinhead? Garbage in, garbage out.

The possibility to process files from your DSLR on the go, possibly - e.g. using a Wi-Fi SD card.

Even if this follows the Lunar and becomes real, just imagine what of a killer Nikon/Canon system this much money can buy for you.

In reply to:

kirbysdl: So just to be clear, the size of the lens is dictated purely by ergos right? The front element of the lens looks like it's halfway down the length of the lens. The optical formula would probably be achievable in half the size, but they wanted a beefy MF ring and useful distance scale window.

(Don't take this as a flame. I'm just interested in design considerations and trade-offs).

I guess it also affects weight and balance (at least to some extent).

Thanatham Piriyakarnjanakul: Sadly it's not 77mm filter thread!!

If you can cash out $1700 on the lens, then $5 for a step up ring wouldn't be exactly budget-breaking.

If I had this much money, I would gladly buy this one, being sure that it wouldn't be out of date 10 or 15 years later.

driftnomore: waited for a D400 patiently and desperately. K3 is the way to go.

D400 will come up eventually, I'm sure.

Lost me on 'It doesn’t transfer RAW'. I guess I'll be sticking to 'regular' SD cards.

@Abhijith Kannankavil - crop mode uses a limited area of the sensor, but does not increase the resolution artificially. Opposed to that, digital zoom usually uses the whole sensor, crops a part of the image and usually outputs the same resolution as the input image's resolution, which takes away quality.

On Just Posted: Nikon D7100 in-depth review article (397 comments in total)

I'm kind of sorry that I didn't wait for D7100 when I bought a D7000 four months ago, but then again, the differences are not huge. Also, I tend to disagree with the hint that there will be D7000 owners wanting to get the D7100 - for me, it makes no sense to 'upgrade' to the same class and only one generation newer body. Again, for me, the more logical step up is an FX body with the appropriate lenses.

It has the weight of 3 or 4 prime lenses, but I suspect it may have the price of more than that number of primes.
