Old Ed: I've been looking for the filter size, but no luck so far. Possibly a 77? Also, it will be interesting to learn if it focuses in the "Nikon" direction or not. BTW, I still have a Tokina f4-5.6 70-200 zoom that I bought back in the 70's. It still looks and works like new. I cannot say the same for my (then top-of-the-line) Nikkor f4.5 80-200; it is now unusable because of zoom creep. And the Nikkor cost about 3,000 USD, in today's dollars. So I'm a BIG Tokina fan. I just wish they had a more extensive line, and I'm sad to see them phasing out of primes.
i bed its gonna be a 67mm size, same as the canon's 70-200 f4. I like tokina too, they usually make some good quality lens, well made!
I'm not interested in such toys.
DoreamonNikon: I had D3s and wait for this for a long time. When it is out, there is not much improvement and it is very expensive. Only 16.2 MP compare to previous 12.1 MP. what is the selling point of this D4 compare now only its video is good. What a disappointment from Nikon. Worse is that we still need to buy accessories for wireless transfer for such a top range and expensive camera. Is it time to jump ship to canon...
I switched side to Canon for the 5DMKII, and got disappointed. The focusing is terrible, and noisy, my friend's D700 totally trashed my 5DMKII on 100% crop's nosies.Personally I believe that more pixel a camera has, if the pixel cannot be process properly by manufacturer's technology , it means "more nosies".I was very happy with my D300s, although 12mp, and now I am sad with my 21mp 5DMKII.When I have enough money I would get a D4 for sure (and you can see 1DX actually drop down to 16mp as well)
shaocaholica: Why do they call it a lens 'cpu'? Its not computing anything. Its just a rom. Maybe on some models it reports back a focal for a zoom but thats hardly worth calling it a 'cpu'.
Here is my question, does the "cpu" calculate whether if the points are well in focus or not and tell the camera?
customers need the cheaper price!
I don't feel it is like a Carl Zeiss, might be camera's problems
I cannot imagine that the monks are using cellphones, :)
