Retzius: Is this the same company that got sued for blatantly copying the Nikon 1 series? It seems they have now blatantly copied Sony's QX?

Does JK actually do anything other than copying designs?

Yes Sakar was the company I was thinking of! TBH, this cell phone camera add on does look VERY much like the Sony QX...

Doesn't say much for JK Imaging

In the next few years, when Nikon finally rights itself, this camera will go down as the camera that represents everything that was once wrong with Nikon.

I still see nothing from Nikon that makes me want to replace my D200…

Note to Nikon, you better make something that is worth me upgrading my D200. Otherwise, once this old girl breaks, I am gonna be forced to change brands.

BTW, if you make a D400 I WILL BUY IT!

Never mind, I now finally realize you are too daft to actually make it :(

Interesting results. It seems that omission of the OLPF really adds nothing tangible and is more of a "marketing" distinction than a true one.

On Nikon to build $6.3m DSLR factory in Laos to lower costs news story (75 comments in total)

I guess they will build anywhere the labor is cheap, the government is corrupt, and the people are repressed enough that they can make a profit. Globalism at its finest.

Me thinks that this is made for the Chinese market (largest and fastest growing market). Small camera for tiny little female Chinese hands.

On Nikon posts sample images and video from Coolpix A news story (50 comments in total)

So lets get this straight. Nikon has not come out with a DX prime wide angle lens for their Dslr line but comes out with one in a half baked over priced compact camera that doesnt compare at all to the competition? I could get the Canon Eos M 18mpx INTERCHANGABLE lens compact camera for less money or the Fuji 100xs for the same money with way more features.

I am sure it will be nice but the price is just ludicrous. The pre-order price at Adorama is full MSRP of $2700. I doubt they will move many at that price point.

I am willing to bet that this lens formulation (18.5mm f2.8) for DX format makes an appearance as the long awaited DX wide angle prime lens for their DX SLR line.

I just realized that on the new D7100 if you use the 1.3x crop mode this will be effectively a 800mm lens and still have autofocus. Amazing.

But still, $2700 is alot of cheddar.

The viewfinder accessory costs more than a 50mm f1.4g lens????? I want whatever they are smoking.

Thanks Nikon. Some DX primes would be nice though...

For film and television production the prices of these lenses are a non-issue. My wife does motion graphic design for film and television and these production companies spend money like it falls from the sky...

On Just Posted: Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Review news story (60 comments in total)

99% of the people who buy this lens won't read a review about it, or even check to see if one exists. Instead, how about we review the types of lenses that enthusiasts use, you know, the people who actually read lens reviews.
