bocajrs: Shipping mine out today
I remember you from the D600 fiasco, are you still happy with the Nikon brand?
Seems like a vendor issue then. I guess us nikon users will have to learn how to read Morse code now.
Interesting epl7 $599. G7 $599 both with selfie screens. The outline of this one reminds me of the Pentax k01.
If you are going to include the X100T, you should also include the Coolpix A and the Ricoh GR, IMO!
Falk from Hamburg: Oh, wow!My interest in the a7 series just keeps increasing. But I do have to wonder :by the time I buy this, they probably announce the next best thing just a week later.
Invest in lenses, wait for best prices on bodies is my motto.
Timing? I assume inventory levels in the west got low enough to make the announcement but there go the resale prices!
Richard,what does this mean (from pg 4 of review)
One of the new dials on the LX100 is for changing the shutter speed. Once you hit the 'end' on the dial, you can keep going higher or lower using the dials.
I think this was the planned replacement for the D600 but do to cirmcumstances beyond their control the D610 had to be rushed out leaving Nikon with an upgraded camera and having to grab a new name for it.
If I had to guess I'd say this was originally intended to be the 610 but they had to rush out a shutter fix for the 600 and it would have been too annoying to replace the 610 so soon so they made up a new name.
I am sure we will never really know..
Not to be pedantic ;-)but I believe that Jony Ive is Senior "Vice" President of design.http://www.apple.com/pr/bios/
And just for the record the K01 was a great camera!
Cheezr: page 11 does not allow me to select the v3 for the comparison.
yup. works now, thanks.
page 11 does not allow me to select the v3 for the comparison.
richard cohen: Nikon does not seem to want to learn anything on pricing. The v1, while a really good first effort, was vastly overpriced so they ended up dumping them. The v2 is also vastly overpriced but I think they decided not to make many of them so you just don't see many people using them. I fear the same will be the result here....people will buy cheaper alternatives (which will be everything else) and these will languish. Nikon better not make many of these because they won't sell many at anywhere near this price.
Also, with the evf and grip it looks a lot like the v2...and it looks like if you attach the evf you can't use an external flash.
The em10grip is $60 not $150
Rob Bernhard: [[Americans also seem to prefer bigger cameras. Sales for the Rebel SL1 have not been as great as we expected in America, for example. We've received some complaints about it being too small. But in Japan and Asia we don't see any complaints about that. So we have to be mindful of the differences between regions.]]
It's a shame the SL1 is not selling well, but I suspect it's more about price than size. Certainly there are those that truly need a larger camera, and there are those who measure their virility by the size of their camera, but a lot of people do want a smaller camera with good performance. The SL1 checks a lot of boxes. But it does so at $750 in the big box stores (with lens). Canon has been offering incentive/discounts but I think it's too little too late.
I saw it at CostCo and it is a beautiful little slr but it only comes with a big honking zoom lens (kinda ruins the appeal of small).Don't know why they didn't kit it with the 40mm.
locke_fc: And it only took them a year and a half to establish that
@Spectro: and not with free shipping, about $45 for me.
Nuno Souto: Nup, sorry, Nikon. 17 months to finally admit there is an issue and even then it's a service advisory rather than a recall?I'm sooo glad I gave up on this company and went m4/3 all the way two years ago!Sick and tired of the disaster Nikon has turned into, at my expense and others who have used their products for decades...
falconeyes: Am I missing something?
Nikon acknowledges the issue but shows no signs of sincere apopolgy?
Because "the presence of dust particles cannot be completely avoided"?
Can anybody beat them in arrogance?
In comparison, we can only now appreciate how Pentax apologized in an almost identical situation:-> http://support.pentaximaging.com/node/1214
I have voted with my dollars and am loving my new e-m10. Thank you Nikon for your distain.
Amazing the power of a lawsuit!
even free shipping, nice but i guess only US customers had the problem?
AbrasiveReducer: Just out of curiosity, the battery says "Cell made in China, further processed in Japan". I understand wanting to get "Japan" in there but I wonder what sort of processing they do and why it's necessary.
Pricing determined in Japan ;-)
Yxa: Let's see which of the functions the D800 will get of the D4s newrecalibrated AF algorithms, Group AF mode, RAW SIZE S and the "ability to customize the color of the LCD monitor to better match studio monitors or personal preference"
In my many years I have never seen Nikon update functionality in FW. Did the D600 get the new white balance algorithms? But then again they are careening wildly downhill so you never know where they will bounce next.
