Misa: Very nice, I would buy if I could but I can not neither need to hate Leica because of my financial limitations I love those folks products.

Leica do make their own product. Why don't Panasonic design their own lenses instead of using Leica? Most Panny cam has Leica branded lenses. Leica in agreement with Panny that they can sell selected some Panny cam with Leica's specifications and requirements. The Leica branded Panny cams are better. Just do a search. They are MUCH MUCH better than the Hasselblad branded Sony.

rgs_45: Samsung reminds me of Radio Shack some years ago. They make excellent products but people try to stay away from them and go for the brand names.

I still have a couple of pairs of Radio Shack speakers I bought 20 some years ago. They still sounds good today, even better than brand names. Majority of people are still loyally branded no matter what whether they admit it or not.

I love their smartphones and lcd tv's though :)

I don't know what brand system you use,but would you actually switch your current system with this with all the promising specs? Would you actually buy into the system knowing the specs are better than your current brand?

Yes they do. I actually had a chance to play with the NX20 a year or so ago and it is a very good camera. But when everything came down to getting one, I went with the Oly EM-5 as I used to own the analog OM-10. Maybe in a few years from now, Samsung will get a foothold in the ILC market, I will take a look at Samsung again. I also think that their ILC pricing is way too high to compete with the likes of Canikon, Olympus, Panasonic that has a established followers. Sigma tried it with their SD1 ILC a few year back with a price so high, even higher that some of the Canikon high end ILC and got nowhere even though it is better than some of the high end Canikons. With this priced at $2500.00 + lens, loyally branded people will stay with their repsective brand.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Review preview (651 comments in total)

Is the FZ-1000 already available? I have been reading and following updates on this camera since I'm interested in getting one.

How can this be a review if, as far as I know, the camera is not available yet? Did the reviewer got a production model?

I have to admit, it's a very nice review. I hope they will do an update once the production model is available. I will be waiting for the "end user reviews and experiences" before I get one.

On Chinese government orders Nikon to stop selling D600 article (228 comments in total)
In reply to:

One_Oldman_4U: Where's the D600 made?

I think this model is made in China. The Nikon factory in Thailand is still trying to recoup from the disaster it suffered a while back.

Would this be a great example of irony? China banning a product made by their very own people in their very own land if the D600 is actually made in China? That will be too funny.

A company that try to save $$$ to maximize their profit by going cheap deserve it IMHO. I will pay a little extra for a quality product. BUT there are not a whole lot of them anymore.

mas54: So, if you want to buy this camera that is 3x the cost of a D800E, you get no cash rebate? What a great deal.

645 is a medium format camera and has a much bigger sensor that ff camera.
Medium Format - 48 mm × 36 mm
Full Frame - 36 x 24mm
