JEROME NOLAS: Aptina=Nikon1, hardly a good deal....try harder Aptina, we need sensors with GREAT dynamic range!!!

I suspect you don't own a Nikon 1. I have a V1 and despite several limitations (most dictated by physics) I find it a very enjoyable camera to shoot.

If I need lots of pixels and/or dynamic range, I'll use a Nikon D800. But when size and weight matter more, the V1 really delivers. Frankly, I expected it get a lot of shelf time, but now carry it almost everywhere. It fills a need.

Neodp: Oh BS. What we need is a D40/60/3200 sized body, with a built-in motor, and all that the D600 includes. Now that would be something, and all at less weight!

See, the competition is smaller cameras, and with this new quality. They are not there yet, but getting close. A D600, and yet at a reasonable, D40 size, would not need to be much smaller; for practical purposes.

If you then preferred bigger, well you got that. If you wanted smaller, you go that too. What you do not yet have, is a native F-Mount; at D3100 size, with a focus motor, built-in. As challenging as that is to design, it can certainly be done! This would send ripples throughout the camera industry, and rule the stater market. AKA, everyone would want one. This could be customer affordable; which is very good, especially in this economy, due to scale, mass market, and higher overall profits.

I'm sure Nikon would love to hear how they can add the addition of an in-body AF motor AND a FX sensor AND FX screen/pentamirror in a D3200 body that is already packed tight. Magic?

yslee1: Bags need to stop opening from the front, and instead open from the back. I don't fancy having mud from the ground to end up on my back.

This is the killer feature I'm waiting for. I need to tote a lot of gear, but I need to work out of it like a trunk.

This looks like a nice solution for small multi-user teams using a mixture of Adobe and other apps. I and others have been asking Adobe for something like this, and I'm sure they have been working on it.

For you guys who don't get it, this product lets the photographer(s) import their RAW images, and multiple people can post-process without overwriting each other's work. The layout team (InDesign) can search and utilize those files. It also support Version Control - you don't lose the previous version because the layout artist decided to crop the image to fit his layout.

This is pretty cool stuff. I hope it lights a fire under Adobe. The price is very reasonable for what it is. And it works with Microsoft Office, PDF, etc. So you can store ALL you digital assets, not just photos. This is a pretty big deal for all the small ad agencies.

Too bad about no Mac support.

korayus: On NikonUSA site D4 has USB 3.0 connection:

Thunderbolt? Why do you want a connector that only a few computers use? USB 3 is much more useful, works with all existing modern computers, and will get faster as you get a computer with a USB 3 port. That ethernet port will be very useful.

harold1968: sorry, 16mp on a professional camera does not cut it
Canon and Nikon are like supertankers. They have heard photographers demanding better quality higher ISO for years so now have both delivered low pixel cameras for their flagships.
Many of us most shoot at base, or just above, ISO and want maximum detail.
Are we now being pushed to medium format ?
I hope Canon and Nikon have high pixel flagships up their sleeves.

> "sorry, 16mp on a professional camera does not cut it"

It most certainly does for event/news/sports photography. This is not a studio/landscape camera. If you needed one, you should have purchased a D3X or 5DMkII.
