more of a sheep in a wolf's disguise
NowHearThis: NEX-5T and 16-70 OSS $1550, sounds like a fantastic combo!
chinese girls want pink version....
tt321: What's the point of DPR news items when not coupled with previews? By the time something makes to this news section, it would have had a long life in various leak/rumour environments and become stale.
what do you need the previews for? so many variety of NEX5s are out there and they don't vary much to assure a preview for each of them. i don't DPR's page to be flooded with NEX3s and NEX5s...
mmmmmm.....very soon it will be $359 with free sony sd card and a bag...maybe plus a tripod too.
this is NEW to him.....so be nice
this is photojournalism, period!
i wanna re-paint my 5D3
CameraLabTester: There must be a lucrative market for these cameras because Pentax just keep on churning them out with such gusto!
Well, whatever works for them and their profitability...
that market is called - JAPAN
tkbslc: This seems like a killer deal. You get the public the pay your production costs, and then you get them to pay for the product. I need to find a business idea to take advantage of this. If you played it right, it could be 100% profits.
is this lens even patented? if not....i think i will see it on ebay auction very soon (if lomo can sell this). Item location, Shenzhen, China or Hong Kong, China....LOL!!! costs me $50 + free shipping and maybe a lens bag and lens cap says Canon/Nikon depends on the mount.
I highly doubt it they will make a good profit out of this deal otherwise investment bankers already jumped in. If they could make about 10% profit they should be laughing....
Timmbits: Casio: still packing features into a camera with a sensor too small.
sales are plummeting... and they still don't get it!
their market concentration is in asia...tryx is selling over $1000 USD there. yes shiettty camera but it sells very very very well. they are counting cash while you think they are flunking...
maybe you guys should check out the price for TRYX series...
mosc: Shake it! Shake it. shake it, shake it. Shake it like a...
how about buy a canon cp900?
GPW: The market is swamped with to many DSLR in a manufactures lineup. Nikon for example has the D3100,D5100, D7000,D7100, in DX lineup. If Nikon had ONE enthusiast DX and ONE pro DX that satisfied the two classes, that would save a crap load of money right there. The technology is there to make ONE excellent enthusiast camera to satisfy everyone from the beginner(auto settings) to the advanced user(manual settings), eliminating the unnecessary saturation of the market. Same goes for pro DX.
different lines are targeting different markets that is people with different budgets.....
if Canon, Sony, Pentax/Ricoh, Olympus, Leica, Panasonic, Casio are alllllll dead then your business model might work but too bad you are wrong. sorry to say that but YOU ARE WRONG!
if Sigma is smart enough, they should do conversion to Sigma SA mount for FREE!
