  • Total nonsense. So don't buy new --- there are any number of excellent quality models that can be had at very reasonable cost (less than $1000) once they're 1-3 years old. If you're looking for a...

  • It's only expensive for a gear head who thinks he needs multiple systems from compact to APS-c to FF, and yeah ... There are a whole lot of enthusiast photogs that do own multiple systems.

    But...

  • Never could understand what the rationale is in shooting wide with large apertures.

  • I agree, but DX-specific lenses tend to be cheaper and use 100% of the glass rather than just the center on FX.

  • You might like the tokina 16-28 ... I certainly do.

  • LMAO...they're ALL "usable" at ISOs over 6400. I said quality, and professionals agree. I also didn't say that the nikon and fuji were the same thing. I said they're equally great for what they...

  • Let's not forget the used market because it's not exactly extinct here --- D600, D700, D3, D3S, D4, D800, and D800E means there are a total of 12 different variants of full frame.

  • Except that the d750 is another Frankenstein approach to camera regurgitation in the same way the DF is....cobbling parts together from already-existing models isn't exactly making anything new,...

  • Perfectly stated.

  • Nail in the head there Dimit. Yep.

  • Oh please ... Spare us the fanboy nikon rant. Read Thom Hogans report on the d750. ... It's not the big deal you think it is. I shoot a d600 with all the best glass as well as a fuji xe-1 with...

  • This is true -- they have released a dozen models that are all similar.

  • @ Hombrito

    Total horsehockey. The IS on the RX1 is very, very good. The IS on this M3 is even better.

    Try getting the same IS from a DSLR compared to the RX1 -- you wont.

  • I was thinking the same -- the operative word being "the" most famous.....

  • This lens is now $1099 US as of today. Tripod collar is still optional and extra cost.

    Build quality is superior to Sigma and Tamron and certainly the same or better than canon and nikon...

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    @ jack white:

    Sounds like another blanket statement that shouldn't be made. The draw for enthusiast and competent videographers to 4k today has more to do with the quality of the HD down-sampled...

  • @ oselimg:
    Perfectly stated.

  • I think anyone who likes the model should be entitled to say so. May not be your cup if tea but to tell someone else what they should buy instead is a bit arrogant.
