win39: Nikon could jump on this by bringing out a D300 successor that is mirrorless, half the size, with a new mount and an adaptor for the old mount. Then convert all the rest of the DX cameras to mirrorless and start bringing out a complete line up of lenses to the new mount. They have already shown that they know how to build a mirrorless that focuses better than the best efforts of the competition with the N1. But they won't, because they compete with Canon and they have not done it.

Mirrorless will never be a true D300 successor.
Even if your dream camera become a reality, there will still be people screaming for a true D300 successor.

I wish that Nikon will learn something from the 7D Mark II episode, like producing something similar.

taktak91: Judging from the review, it's a very capable camera.
Too bad it's not sold everywhere like other brands.
I won't purchase a $2000+ camera if I can't see it in person first.

>T3, jkoch2

Like I said earlier, you definitely don't live near where I live. Where I live, camera stores still thrive (maybe not as much as before, but they show no signs of closing down any time soon). Also, where I live, you can't just buy something and then return it to get a full refund just because you don't like it. That's why one have to see it in person before making a purchase.

T3, I don't know where you live, but it's definitely not close to where I live. Where I live, you don't need online reviews. You just go to the nearest camera shop, grab a D4 or a EOS-1 or practically anything currently in production (with the exception of SAMSUNG) , test it, feel it, and make a judgement for yourself. Nothing beats reality. Especially when you're buying the real thing.

That's what I don't understand; people spending their hard-earned cash based on online reviews done by who-the-heck-is-he?s. Seeing something on screen and in person is totally different. It definitely spared me from a lot of regrettable purchases. According to this review, this camera is so great that I should just shut up and go buy it, but I'll probably think otherwise after I see it in person.

On Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal article (809 comments in total)

It's Canon's first real attempt at a `convergence camera`. Judging from the specs, it's far from perfect, and it may not even be an original concept, but we may look back at this camera one day and say `It all began from here`. For better or for worse.

taktak91: Another spectacular product from Nikon that is incapable of replacing my D300, nor my K-5 II, which I ended up purchasing.
Is Nikon suggesting that I should eventually replace my K-5 II with K-3?
That's fine by me, but I don't know how Nikon can profit from it.

>I think it's more a mental barrier

Assuming that FF and primes answers to all and every photographer's needs is sort of a mental barrier too.
I'm sure FF and primes are nice and all, but fails to meet my particular needs.

I'd rather buy K-3 than go FF.
Keep my load light and save money.

I will.
Along with my D100 and D200.
They're all fine cameras.

On Canon to move camera production back to Japan article (108 comments in total)
In reply to:

extraone: the problem I see is not the QC but the work ethics.

out of all the asian countries, japan is the only country that has a very hard work ethic.

they live to work. all the rest work to live.

Don't worry. Canon products will be manufactured in factories located in Japan, manned by Vietnamese workers residing in Japan, who assembles components produced in China or Vietnam.
Canon is one of the leading companies that redefined "MADE IN JAPAN" for all of you.

On Hands-on with Nikon's new D5500 article (288 comments in total)
In reply to:

Peiasdf: An exciting downgrade. Pretty soon all DSLR will be a downgrade from EVIL/mirrorless.

I actually want Canon and Nikon (and to some extend Pentax) to fail ASAP. Their continuous pumping out of low-end DSLRs that's not an upgrade of the previous model is taking money away from EVIL/mirrorless companies that could use the money to innovate even faster. Canon and Nikon are playing the role of Kodak, trying to prevent the rise of digital/EVIL/mirrorless.

If Canon and Nikon stopped their oligopoly on DSLRs, it will be SONY, PANA, and maybe SAMSUNG doing oligopoly on mirrorless.
And it would be far worse than Canikon's oligopoly. At least for now, we can choose between DSLRs and mirrorless.

If that's true, I'll have to shop elsewhere.

>The Pentax K3 is sort of like the D300S

Well, I got myself a K-5II recently.
As of now, I'm eyeing the K-3.
But I'm still holding out for a D300s replacement.

Those who require EVF and interchangeable lens buy GX7, and those who don't buy LX100.
Simple, isn't it?

I just watched a Japanese actress purchase a 900000 yen ($9000) LEICA M on TV.
Now I know who buys them.
