Barney, since I see you used the 16-55F2.8, how did that lens feel on the camera? does it hang over the bottom? E.g., on my e-m10 a few of the bigger lenses hang over the bottom edge of the camera.
First off Rishi, lovely image!!
Having digested the comments on this camera can I summarize by saying that Canon sensors are the slide film to Sony's color neg film?Never had a problem with either, just different mindset.
rfsIII: Phil Askey almost always managed to gift us with a cat photo in his long-ago reviews, now we have Mr. Spencer with a magnificent dog photo. I hope this is a feature we will see more of.
I agree with you but good luck with that!
Cane: Every time a Japanese camera executive is interviewed, it seems like you're pulling teeth to get even a glint of usable info out of them. Strained conversations is an understatement. Do they realize that's bad marketing?
In some ways they do make the best sensors, just not in every way. Sony may have have marginally better DR or ISO but they have dual pixel af. Best is a relative term depending on what is important to you.
cgarrard: Nikon 1 System Remarks: "We have two different categories: the D-line and the 1-series, and with these lineups, we believe we’ll meet all the needs of customers"
So if the 1 series sucks for you, just get a DSLR. Nevermind about us listening to consumer and making better products for the 1 series. ;)
I think they are gambling on 1" sensor tech improving dramatically and I hope they are right! (I also hope to win the lotto..)
Interesting how focussed they are on Canon as their competition, even Sony barely got their attention.I also agree that the 1 system allows very nicely sized lenses but for me the image quality is not yet acceptable.If 1" sensor tech improves the way m4/3 did it could be a serious competitor.
I enjoyed the images and the commentary. He is quite a traveller!
Can you turn the LCD inwards when using the EVF so it stays off?
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.
