joe6pack: Does it mean that I can apply Oly color to pictures taken with my Sony?
No it wont even appear as an option for your camera.
way to P*ss off your customers!
Lets make several hundred dollars of lenses Manual Focus only...some people may make a living off some of these lenses and batteries, a warning would have been the least they could've done.
Nikon might be becoming the New Adobe...
Apollo18: I've not looked at the design patent owned by Nikon, but comparing the two cameras they do look very similar to me. To the extent that the design patent covers the Nikon 1 then, this seems fair enough to me. Sakar seem to agree, given how far they backed down.
Just because they backed down doesnt mean that they are wrong, just means they dont have as much money as nikon, large corporations can keep small companies in court for years to the point where the little guys go bankrupt. Doesnt matter whos right or wrong anymore.
pdelux: canon have ridden the wave of their reputation for a long time. but how will it last when they keep releasing lack luster products.....
For Every "good" product canon releases (lets say 5D3) there are about 5 "lack luster" pieces of crap such as 2 EOS-Ms made to protect their "good" products. Hey maybe thats good business (i dont know anything about business)
We all remember when KODAK was king and how quickly they fell.
SRT3lkt: This camera will receive "least positive comment of the year" award.
The nikon DF got 2000+ comments a large majority negative... so its got a long way to go there
Mike tn: The EOS-M is $299 at B&H right now. What point and shoot or CSC for $299 will outdo it in image quality?
IQ is only the tip of the ice berg, if you cant focus, what good is the best IQ. If you only have 3 native lenses and the rest large DSLR lenses, will you leave your kit at home with the DSLR? what good is the best IQ if you aren't compelled to use it.

67gtonr: The M is Considerably larger than the GM1 in only one aspect and that is sensor size, and this M2 is even smaller than the M!
How about adding some lenses to your few mm http://j.mp/1bgxvQr
whtchocla7e: First we make a product that nobody wants and then wonder why it doesn't sell. Just one of life's many mysteries!
Then you make Version 2 which looks the same and has incrememental upgrade like better AF which it should've had from the start.
munro harrap: To be asked to pay out £1949 for this machime when you can buy a brand new Nikon Full-frame D800 and a good secondhand 28-105mm lens for the same money today says you are pushing poor product on purpose. I do not believe you actually ever bought one any more than Ken Rockwell buys all his.
I have an Oly 8080 with a similarly excellent Olympus zoom lens that delivers as much detail as is in your woodland scene, which is flat-no dynamic range to speak of, and I can guarantee that a Sony R1 would trash the IQ of this micro 4/3rds machine and all such, it just would and the lens-on this showing-is better.
£2000 is a lot of deception-amounting to fraud, sir, shame on you!
Where is the DISLIKE Button when you need it...
Olympus on a roll. Love it or hate it, one must applaud the sheer audacity to put a sensor half the size of 35mm in a Pro body and compete against cameras twice the weight/size (some of them). They delivered the IQ, the body and the finally the promise of m4/3 is fulfilled. It took 5 years but they got there. Bravo.
wireless: I guess you guys won't be happy until you get it for free. Education, health care, food, college, housing, only when it's for free. Plenty of other products out there. Can't afford $120/yr - you should let your camera make jpg's and edit for you. I guess a $100 a month for cell phone or cable TV is okay but $10 for LR and PS is outrageous.
Education and Healthcare is free in most developed countries...
davids8560: I would like to see more weatherproofed MILC's. I mean, "high quality, take everywhere cameras" they say - that is, unless it's cold or it's rainy!
I'm pretty sure Olympus has a couple of weatherproofed MILC's, but I think none of the lenses are. And Nikon has one. Correct me if I'm wrong!
Isn't environmental sealing a fairly easy feature to add to a camera? All those little rugged compact cameras on the market right now might be tough, but every last one of them lacks the photographic power of a camera like this little camera.
I think environmental sealing would appeal to a lot of people. A tough little camera that's a real photographic tool, not a point-and-shoot.

rogerhyam: The Df camera is just pastiche.
Let's face it even the retro future is mirrorless with knobs on.
Fujifilm have got it right. The Sony Alpha 7 looks interesting.
All those old Nikkors are a dead weight for Nikon.
Mirrors in cameras are a remnant of the analogue age... we are digital now..
zGeniez: Great camera! But please please please Nikon add the following features to make it an absolute buy:1. Focus Peak Highlight for pinpoint manual focusing2. Full HD Movie Shooting3. A small built in TTL fill flash 4. A flip out screen for self potraits/videos5. A completly silent shutter
It will take them another 3 years for that..
Craig from Nevada: Retro is soooo 2012
Ripping people off is always controversial...
pca7070: An ugly overpriced "retro" camera.
He obviously knows about ugly cameras then... so he does have some weight in this discussion!
NCB: Bottom line is:a) this is Nikon's smallest and lightest FF DLSRb) functionally it's a totally modern DSLR, whatever the looksc) it has an outstanding, proven sensord) it offers the traditional controls which will appeal to a number of photographers
It will sell.
Many CSC users will hate it because it strikes at everything they've bought into. The brighter CSC user will realise that it's simply a different sort of product, but an equally valid one.
b) functionally it's a totally modern DSLR, whatever the looksReally? Modern cameras have video, focus peaking, some have IBIS, I wouldnt say totally modern.. its using a 2 year old sensor (good though it may be)
ecube: Not that I like everything about this camera. That said, I feel safer having this camera around my neck because the "classic look" gives the impression of a cheap old-style film camera not worth stealing.
One slight problem, which of my current DSLR shall I give up for this Df body? The D800, D600, D5100?
You think Thieves dont know what a LEICA camera is old or new?
