I'm hoping this is just a test bed for all the new technology that will roll out in the D400!
a guy can hope right?
I see dust particles on that box. Sloppy QC.
I would think a $7000 camera would have its own unboxing utility
If you could break open the D4s and find a D400 inside than I might be interested ;)
Or, you can just wait 6 months and it will be on firesale for $399.99
I bet the D620 comes out next year with wi-fi, gps, expeed4, and a dirty sensor.
Then they can release the D630 6 months later.
Retzius: For those who are confused as to why this lens is relevant, compared to the Nikon equivalent it is smaller, lighter, and much cheaper, with equal to better optical performance.
It is not targeted at your average Dpreview brick wall shooter who examines his sensor for dust particles. It is targeted at a first time Dslr shooter with an intro level body who doesn't want to change lenses that often.
And they sell alot of these
The newer lens has their "updated" contemporary look (which believe it or not is a selling factor) and it also is compatible with the Sigma USB dock so you can ensure compatibility as the firmware on your camera changes.
As far as comparisons to RX10, Stylus 1, etc. you guys need to keep in mind the intended buyer of this lens. They would have no idea what you are talking about. The purchaser is likely a new camera buyer and wants to look like a "photographer" so they get an affordable Dslr.

Where is the "Endangered Species" edition with ivory tusk handles, bengal tiger skin grips, condor wing lens shutter, and lens elements made from giant bluefin tuna eyeballs?
I expect more Hasselblad! There is no price premium at all for my financial status!
Where is the limited run "Year of the Monkey" edition with diamond crusted carbon fiber accents, depleted uranium body, and matching panda fur case that will also hold your Lunar?
Does it come in red and grey?
I'm not sure how these are offensive "cookie cutter" images of Russia...
I have been to Russia and much of it looks very much like this. You see modernization sprinkled in with obvious relics (both physical, mental, and behavioral) of its Communist past.
If this offends than some really need to get a thicker skin. Americans are criticized and ridiculed all the time. After a while, you realize the attention is rather flattering ;)
The title of this story says "Fujfilm" and not "FujiFilm"
Retzius: Does anyone at Sigma smile?
It looks about as fun working there as in a forced labor camp.
Here is the impression that the video gives.
1. serious; no joy is to be found here2. populated by middle aged men with stoic frowns3. isolated 4. located in a land of punishing wind, snow, and freezing rain5. dimly lit6. quiet; no words are spoken
It looks to me like someone at Sigma management has a case of "warrior-monk" syndrome
Does anyone at Sigma smile?
Never mind Nikon...
I give up.
The camera and lens look very "Contax" to me.
I like it...
This could be the Contax RXIII.
What the Nikon 1 should have been...
Jurka: This camera has flash HSS sync mode or not, like 3000?
If I have the camera nestled into my palm with the backwards facing grip, then how the heck do I reach my thumb down into my palm to press the focus button?
