Google don't give a sh*t about open source, they use it because it give a better reputation and in the end all they care about is gathering stats data and make money. It is not enough for them to spy on people's habits with android apps, web apps, gmail, gps tracking etc, now they wanna know what your looking at. I've get rid of (most) all google and search engine stuff on my rooted phone and computers. I also using outbound firewall. You wouldn't believe all apps that "phone home" giving away your privacy. It's sad to see the world embracing thoses things, really.

Nice PS job, and the "all manuals controls" is great.

But, the perfect camera for me is the one who has the (mostly) perfect sensor.

I'd like nikon focus more on this and being creative ! A mix of the D600's sensor for noise SNR and dynamic and a foveon like structure. This, I would buy without hesitation.

The old tamron 70-200 was 1:3,1 (f=200mm, MFD 0,95m), this one is 1:8 (at f=200mm: MFD 51.2") WTF ? What do we gain here tamron ? The USD was very needed, but changing theses specs + adding breathing will doesn't do any good. Add this to an expected bump in price and that's a deal killer. It better be an awesome optical performer...
And why no pentax version ? I own nikon gear, but forgetting pentax is just plain stupid IMHO.

marike6: The price for the 70-200 VC? I hope it's not in the $1500 range because of the VC, as in that case it would probably a better plan for Nikon shooters to look at a used 70-200 VR I. And for Canon shooters, either a non-IS 70-200 or the superb 70-200 f4 IS might be tough to pass up in that price bracket. But the original Tamron 70-200 2.8 is a very good lens optically. We'll see how the VC turns out.

agreed, my guess is that they will charge a lot more for VC USD.

solarider: Hi Lars,

Photokina must be huge to traverse. Thank you for doing it for us :-)

Can you get Tamron and Sigma to comment on what their plans are regarding making more lenses in Pentax K mount? It's a bit frustrating seeing their lenses go to other mounts, few for Pentax shooters.

thanks,

Nic

they dropped the K mount with all their recent lens

JakeB: About a year ago Tokina announced a similar lens which still hasn't been released.

Given the quality of Tokina's 12-24 f4 lens I'd be very interested.

Tamron, not so much.

the precedent tamron 70-200 2.8 is a very good lens, optically. They just added recent tech. By the way the tokina was a f4, but you'r right they also make very good products.

crappy program, doesn't worth a penny. I tried this latest version, can't even load a D7000 raw file, showing error "SubsampleScale1 Execution Error"

Save your money and use rawtherapee or LR

I still wonder why do people buy such cameras... iso 100 look like cr@p, like all other compact theses days. Go get an entry level DSLR or mirrorless 4/3 / aps-c
