Can I have mine in pink, cause the CEO of Olympus said he would wear pink if they went down the full frame path ;)
///M: confirmation the Canon 50/1.4 is junk, even when adjusted its blah. I had one, sold it as it was reliably unsharp, would never recommend it to anyone.
Also the USM tends to fail on this lens.
***Warning *** Sony scam in Australia. Ignore all adverts, twits, reddit, websites as there is a rouge element in Sony Australia.
antares103: For what reason would the camera be released only in Australia? This is a serious question.
You mean Sony bigwigs kissing ass.
1 Big Failure!
Blackraven: Lordy lord! There are a lot of trolls out today! The camera looks great and is extremely-well speced.....new sensor, fast focusing, touch-screen, wifi, articulating LCD, EVF, new lenses......... WOWThose of us who are keeping up with technology will know that the IQ/sensor size ratio is improving with each generation. The V1 had pretty good IQ that is good enough for most "consumers". It certainly could print 16x24" size prints without any problem. This new sensor will certainly be an improvement on the V2's.The styling is many many notches above the V2. If the materials and surface finishes matches the high-level of styling then we're talking about a premium product.There's a good lens choice from regular speed to fast lenses that are small and good to excellent optical-quality.The price is a little high for me now but i hope this will come down over time. I'm keeping my eye on this one for sure.
The dodo was a great bird to, but look what happened to it.
I love Nikon, but as I said before...1 Big Mistake. Maybe it will join these ranks below.
peevee1: Lots of expensive manual work which should be eliminated both for cost and quality.
Some things can't be done by robots. Same in Leica's factory.
wudyi: I'm going to get this. I have a friend who took one of these to Africa and came back with spectacular shots of African kids playing in a muddy river.
Really, your friend has one?! It just got announced. Are Canon that desperate to promote their sub-par camera by getting a troll to promote it.
I thought and it should be called HIV, cause this is one camera disease you DON"T want to catch...Oh Hasselblad you have done it again ;p
srados: Again another camera that is not CanNik brand and all I can read about, great sensor, color etc but FUNCTIONALITY, the basic mechanic yet again is a failure.How long it would take them (Fuji,Sony,Olyimpus,Panasonic) to come up with product that will not fail within first year? I am not saying that 2 major players did not have horrible cameras on the market but in a much less percentage that all others...I am still waiting for decent compact camera.
@srados Haven't you ever heard never go full retard?! I own this camera and the X100 before and IT is a great camera. Pick it up and take photos. Easy to use, yes a bit soft at f2, but still a great camera. The way you insulted people as you didn't back up your rant with facts, leads me to believe your balls haven't dropped yet. Peace out bro!
qwertyasdf: The best part of this story is that even DPR is trolling Hassy.Victor didn't deserve this, but the current management deserved every bit of this, I hope they personally go bankrupt.
Of course they won't. You should know that they always have a backup plan (money in the bank and golden hand shake) and "It wasn't my fault, blame X". Money men always make money and screw over the employees.
nicolas guilbert: DPR can you please make an article on what camera Paris Hilton and other celebrities use. I need some advice and i'm confused on what to buy next.
Ony the rich and stupid buy these mutton dressed as lamb Hasselblad camera's (that's what my Rep said) as we are to smart to buy a rebadged Sony. Nothing wrong with the Sony, but slapping a bit of wood and metal (that looks like plastic) is NOT a new camera Hasselbald. Lazy Hasselbald, lazy.
Victor Hasselblad would turn over in his grave. Hasselblad have no imagination, no original designs (or designers just out of college) and no clear path to take them in the future. They are no different from a "West Coast Customs" business, were they build nothing, but tart it up and charge stupid prices. One day (maybe 5-10 years) dpreview will run an article after Hasselbald go bankrupt and "Where Did They Go Wrong?"
I have been to Leica's factory in 2007 and this reminds me of their factory (almost dropped the original Leica ur when there!).
zorgon: I find that my sigma 35mm on my canon 5diii front focuses quite badly when using 61 point AF mode yet focuses perfectly when using single point AF. Maybe I'll see if this update fixes things.
Um, I don't mean to be rude, but it is like giving 61 monkeys the steering wheel and hoping that they drive you to your destination The camera can't read your mind...yet)...it will end in disaster! Single point, with maybe the nearest surrounding points will always be best.
techmine: Alas some hope of cheaper omd5's on ebay :-)
When I saw the "C" word, I thought someone was being rude. Not the best choice Leica marketing.
DotCom Editor: I think this is a brilliant idea and I recommend it to all Nikon owners.
It is better to drown a Canon and claim insurance instead of waiting for the shutter to die.
Just buy a cheap DSLR and a cheap Sigma lens and who cares if it goes in the drink!
