"a system which the company has positioned as one of its more affordable offerings"
Nikon's answer will be a D7100 with wifi, GPS, and bigger buffer, and a few minor tweaks. I've given up on a "true" D400. Nikon's heart isn't in it, they think FF is the answer.
They could re-release these as the M9 Schotty-Sensor edition complete with a certificate hand signed by the technician who certified the sensor as defective and a Hermes hand bag with a few loose threads.
All joking aside... someone would buy them and talk about how the Schotty sensor lends a uniquely "organic" look to the images that captures not only the "decisive moment" but the uniquely "imperfect nature of humanity"
I bet the old guy that hand polishes each Leica T body for 12 hours can buff those marks right out of that sensor glass.
Maybe they can make a 45 minute video of that too.
This week Sony releases the A7II with 5 axis IBIS and Nikon answers with...
wait for it...
The gold edition Df
Pretty much sums up the state of things in Nikon land atm
Ironic that Nikon releases this the same day that the Japanese economy sinks once again into recession...
Maybe there is a lesson here
ISO 1600 looks very very good!
Looks like a nice little camera. It seems strange though that Canon seems to struggle when its comes to contrast detection AF. The autofocus speeds of their cameras using CDAF always seem to be a bit slower than the competition. The speed of the EOS M was atrocious.
What happens now to my pre-order for the Endangered Species Edition Lunar with shark fin grips, mastodon tusk buttons, and LCD coated in crystalized Panda tears?
The image quality does not impress.
Nice looking piece of kit though ;)
The whole 'Fro' shtick gets old pretty quick.
6 minutes is trying, 6 hours would be worse than water boarding.
D-list internet celebrities are the new thing in photography
Welcome to the 21st century Calumet ;)
Brikk claims to donate a proportion of its profits to 'populations around the world which are suffering'
Retzius: Sigma makes a 17-70 2.8-4 Macro HSM in Pentax mount for $499...
They should have just updated the 17-70 f4 with WR and HD coating

I think its kind of funny that the press release says it has "11 seals" and "allows photographers to remain confident in its abilities under demanding outdoor conditions including rain and snow."
But then they say "With smooth, quiet autofocus operation driven by a built-in DC motor, you’re sure to enjoy serene shooting."
So which is it? Am I shooting in a hurricane or enjoying serene shooting?
Its pretty big for a rather slow 16-85 zoom lens, uses 72mm filters, and weighs 488g. Its also darn pricey considering it relies on in-body SR and doesn't have a built in VR mechanism.
The Nikon equivalent (which has been out for years btw...), weighs the same, uses 67mm filters, has its own built in VR, and costs less.
Retzius: Looks pretty good!
BTW, the Pentax K-3 looks amazing.
I don't shoot Pentax... I just think it looks the most "natural". They left in some fine grained noise so as to not reduce edge detail. The Canon files looked a bit "cooked", but still really nice.
Looks pretty good!
