  • You comparing apple with bananas. Have you ever done a size and weight comparison between your listed museum equipment and the V2/V3 and the size weight difference between a V2 and a V3. If you do ...
  • I think the brightness of the image in the EVF is boosted when at some level of darkness. Just point the camera in to a dark corner of a room and watch the image bigness being turned up by the ...
  • This is exactely why I never buy a V3. I like the grip and EVF integrated in a solid package with easy battery and external flash handling! All this add on stuff makes the system failure prone.
  • Based on the two German user reports I took the risk and updated my V2 to 1.2 and FT1 to 1.2. I can confirm that the Tamron 70-300 VC works with this set of firmware. Both single and continues ...
  • This review (or should I say V3 trashing)  is simply too short on words and facts. I do not know why the size suddenly becomes an issue. As long the ergo metrics is right the small size fits the ...
  • I am still on version 1.0 because I do not want to brake it with my Tamron 70-300 VC. It would be nice if someone who upgraded to 1.2 and owns a Tamron lens could report if 1.2 is again ...
  • The only problem you have with all the upgrade scenarios you describe is that Nikon will bundel all the optional devices in the old USA. I guess you end up with lots of duplicates just to get to a ...
  • I disagree with your comment. If a manufacture spends a entire page in the reference manual warning you about the sensibility of a device than I have to assume there is a valid reason behind this ...
  • Go to the post "V3 reference manual available for download" and follow the link "hear".
  • Just downloaded the V3 manual. In this manual Nikon insists that the optional view finder is to be removed from the camera before stored in the bag! Also you are not allowed to touch the contacts, ...
  • Replied in My deer V2
    Thanks. It is nice to see for once something other than birds or BIF's. Looking at the posts one might think birds are the only animals in this world.
  • I sure hoped to get lower noise and better overall IQ. Apparently this sensor is just following marketing wishes: more pixels! So "upgrading" from a V2 gets me a bunch of new pixels, extra noise, ...
  • What's the point of a J4? It's just a V3 without the optional view finder and grip! All Nikon has to do is re-package the current offering. Any thing else does no longer compete with the new ...
  • The Samsung NX Mini with a 20.9M 1" sensor will hit the store in April about the same time the V3 will be available. The major difference is the price: just over 500.- versus just under $1200.- ...
  • I read the article which frankly wasn't all that enlighten. Every one on the Web site can read the camera spec, the pricing, and the packaging for the distribution channel. Unfortunately Nikon has ...
  • You only have 550 characters to express your wish list! So be carful in setting priorities. In my case a kit containing body and EVF is priority one. Next is IQ and noise. I expect a substantial ...
  • Using the word stupid in this context is way overboard. If the EVF accessory has a mechanical lock, and an electrical lock to stay on, I am all happy about the design. The only complaint I have is ...
