qwertyasdf: I never understand why the top LCD screen is a good thing. I have used many many different models, and prefer looking at the settings in the rear LCD, isn't that a more convenient location???
The top LCD is a holdover from film camera days and it signified a higher end camera. I personally think its a waste and is a less convenient way of working. However, the "target market" may think its more "fancy" and shell out another 100 bucks. I think that is the main goal here... never forget the marketers are the ones driving business theses days.
I will wait for the "Endangered Species" edition with rhino hide leather covering, crystallized panda tears LCD covering, and a manatee skin case with Luis Vuitton embossed logos.
The 20k price tag might seem high, but whenever I take pictures of my cat, a homeless person, on trash on the street and them post it on the Leica forum I am guaranteed to have fellow Leicaphiles declare that I have 'captured the moment' in shades of black and white that are simply not possible on any other platform.
Gloat all you want Sony fanboys! Nikon finally got a touchscreen and wifi. How you like them apples!
Maybe Leica could repackage this in a hand polished body and sell it for 10k
Does it have a Sony sensor and a Sony EVF?
Retzius: If sony made an entry model A7 at $999 and a set of cheap primes at $199 each they would take over
That is what has prevented me from getting into the system as well. They seem to think that if they stick a blue Zeiss sticker on every lens they can charge 4-5x the competitive market value.
If they put out a set of Sony branded basic affordable entry primes (28 2.8, 50 2.0, 135 2.8) in the $199 range they would entice a much large group of shooters to grow the system.
You are right! A7 is at that price point. Now, if they only made some "cheap" entry level primes. There really is no reason they can't make a "nifty fifty" at the $199 price point.

The D400 is coming this year... a unicorn told me so
OMG Live View and a 900k LCD :O
Maybe Hasselblad can put some wood trim on it, sell it for 20k, and call it the Ridicula
couldn't I just add the effect in LR using a lens I already have?
At this rate, the D5600 will be announced for Christmas and they will change the texture of the grip, put the GPS back in but remove the Wifi, and add a control for aperture in live view...
Then, next year, on the D5700, they will change the texture and grip again, take out the GPS and put the Wifi back in, stick in the AF system from the now "old" D7100, and change a font...
and on it goes
Ive lost count of how many different 1 series cameras Nikon has pumped out in the last couple years....
Its not good when there are so many models the consumer doesn't even know what the difference is unless they do research on their own time to spend their own money to buy a companies product.
Looks decent, but how many more of these minor upgrade models can they keep pumping out?
DPreview honestly could just post the D5300 or D5400 review with an addendum saying its a bit better.
We are on the J5 already????
Must be cheap to pump out these upgrades.
Lytro is struggling because its a solution in search of a problem.
the audience for this is huge! huge i tell you!
Well, couldn't i just push the buttons on my own camera, toggle the switches on my own camera, and explore the menus on my own camera?
Why would I pay to do that on a "virtual" one when I could do that on the one I already own?
