jjz2: I'm tired of hearing the whole... this is entry level basic!!! But for 200 dollars more!!!
Many skilled photographers are perfectly fine with a super light DSLR. We don't want to spend 200 dollars more, we don't want the bigger camera, we don't need more features! For the same price you could get a used 5d mark ii and 50mm lens! Many of us have a more advanced camera, or several of them. Who cares. People like and want this camera. I went with a diff camera line for a little bit thinking the SL line would never be continued, but now that the SL2 is out I'm back in the game.

We don't want.....
Maybe, but we want better dynamic, better viewfinder, in'camera raw conversion, less expensive price....

Philnw2: Canon says they are going to build some mirrorless cameras, but here we go again, the same old tired flapping mirror design that is so noisy and requires the post chimping to see how the image was exposed. Mirrorless shows you how the image is going to be exposed BEFORE you take the picture. Great for beginners, instead of these inscrutable flappers.

Correction : Canon has tried to make mirorrless cameras and they have half succeeded with the m5....

I thought it was Panasonic that makes components for Leica ?

BokehFanatic: If they make it very basic but professional, cheap but sturdy and the same for the lenses, I see sufficient sales! Maybe me included. :)

Zenit has never produced professional cameras.....

Sangster: What separates Nikon from the herd for me, as a Canadian consumer, is the warranty. Nikon backs up their bodies with a 2 year warranty and 5 years for their lenses. Everybody else is 1 year. So if Nikon does indeed launch FF mirrorless priced along the lines Sony's A7 series that extra peace of mind would be worth something for me.

This is one of the things I do not understand. why is there discrimination between countries re warranty on bodies and lenses. Nikon should give the same international warranty that applies to ALL countries.

Mark
ThE law is the law. I wanted to say that ALL electronic devices benefit a two year warranty which is obligatory. So nikon, Canon, fuji, etc give the customer 2 year warranty. There are very few companies who would give more. Tamron Is one of those. For the rest, if you want a 3 year or .... year warranty, you have to pay for that. My reaction is based on the fact that obviously in USA you have only one year warranty or maybe this depends on manufacturers ?

AKH: Why not make a mirrorless FX and APS-C camera and continue with Nikon 1. There are advantages to each format and one doesn't have to exclude the other formats.

Shademastzr, you mean Nikon has nomore those resources.... which is to my opinion the real reason why they abandoned their high end compact DL cameras....

elementare: The fact that there is no professional that uses Olympus, Sony or Fuji is partially true in the sense that the 90% of professionals all over the world use Canon or Nikon for historical, sub cultural and marketing reasons.

Olympus has 1 pro camera. Em1 mk2. With lower ISO quality than professional equipments. So automatically excluded by stubborn professionals. Fuji has 1 pro camera, xt2. And a beautiful but boutique Leica oriented x-pro. Sony has a wonderful alpha A line that never took off over Canikon. Now has Sony alpha E. But the very first professional camera has come out this year. And with just Nikon D850 you can, photographically speaking for a pro, do the 95% of what you can do with a7m2, A7rm2, a7sm2 and A9 all togheter. And there are anyway D5, d750 and d500. But there is also the fact that you can serenely produce professional work with Fuji, Olympus and Sony. It's just a matter of the photographer. And he never questioned this in what stated.

Sony is more pro active and has more cash for'r&d, that is why they will stay at position 2 after Canon. They have a better understanding of the photo market.
Nikon is ok but I guess they will have to find a joint venture sooner or later to survive.

zakaria: The dslrs market is already divided among canon nikon and pentax.
aps/c mirrorless between fuji.sony.canon.
Four thirds between panasonic and olympus.
There is only one player on ff mirrorless cameras. it is sony.there is a big chance for nikon on this market.
Aps/c and four thirds are threatened by the smartphones which are developed day by day.and may be we will see smartphones with many lenses and big sensor.

Pentax, are you kidding ? In max 5 years time, pentax will disappear...

pdelux: "Olympus, Sony and Fujifilm can only cover a small part of that. So far there is no professional using their products."

Out of touch Nikon? ... just like their all male campaign.
Panasonic GH5 is used by professionals for video production.
And many sony, fuji and olympus pros out there if you look. If they werent hurting nikon, there would be no need for nikon to release an FF mirorless pro camera. sounds like they are getting nervous.

Sony sells now more cameras than Nikon, that is why they are nervous.

In reply to:

Michael1000: I agree. Nikon's mirrorless has to be full frame. That's where the market is heading, and that's where the money is.

I am,not that sure.
Many people having switched to Fuji or Sony have come back to Nikon because they could not get accustomed to the electronic viewfinder.
Why are people buying mirrorrless, well I guess the main reason is that it is smaller, so apsc makes sense otherwise you will have huge lenses. If Nikon goes into mirorrless, Canon will follow or maybe have it before Nikon which will mean that Nikon will loose more market shares even before having a FF mirrorrless body....

In Europe, we have 2 year warranty, that is the law.
Re this announcement, there is one thing I do not understand the manager says : "if nikon goes mirrorrless...." and some weeks ago, other people from,nikon said they were preparing a pro mirorrless. Why then say "if" ??
Anyway, they are too late. Many people have sold their Nikon equipment to buy either Fuji or Sony. Hope they are not going to have the same fate as Kodak....

In reply to:

cruz031: What the...!!? For WOMEN only? Shame on you Yashica for not including single male photographer in your teaser. We (MEN) are not capable to operate the camera,right?? I'll take my money elsewhere,thank you!

Women are the future of humanity.
Take a minute and think about the fact if someone known in the USA would have been a woman instead of a man ruling your destiny.....
And well, this is of no interest to speculate on the fact that in this small film there are no men, who cares ? This is only a small little insignificant film

In reply to:

tombell1: Not sure. For me I await happily with my XT1 until Fuji produce IBIS. Meanwhile I hope to buy lenses!

Wise decision, I'll do the same because the xt series although bigger is weather sealed and has two SD slots . The non ibis is what led people choosing Sony over fuji maybe but anyway this xe3 is overpriced unfortunately. When the xt3 will hit the market, we will find xt2 at decent prices....

The first model has turned me,off the followers.... I could never get a single shot with decent colors (jpeg) even with other tunings. The colors looked dull , desaturated. The lens is ok but in black and white. Never found the famous zeiss color rendering...

User6974702360: wat is het gemak tussen de D500 enD850 personlyk teveel electronica in
byde camera.s dus de prys is de boosdoener

Mvg J.A. Kooman

The Dutchman says there is too,much electronic in those bodies, so this is why they are expensive.... he is probably going to buy an old zenit camera...
i guess he drives an old DAF car with no brake assistance, no gps, no other assistance, etc , funny or tragic, I don't know....

DanielFjall: Canon is better than Nikon anyway

Danielfjall, you should read more carefully dpr tests. The Eos m5 review shows 9 positive opinions against 12 negative ones. This is one of the worst test results ever seen here..... not saying what retailers think : do not buy Eos M bodies. Poor battery life, low dynamic, poor results in low light, no decent lenses apart the 22 mm, shall I go further ?
Your opinion I am,afraid is extremely subjective.
There is also no reason why we should become nervous about a possible new Mirrorrless system presented by Nikon. Wait and see. The problem,for Nikon is that many people have already made up their'opinion and invested into other Mirrorrless systems...

Holger Drallmeyer: I know it's a budget lens and it's not bad at all but these sample pictures want me puke. Couldn't someone shoot something a bit more inspiring and motivating?

At 840 usd, Is it still a budget lens ?
i prefer to lose on the wide side but have a 100 % dedicate lens. Considering the pzrticularity of the Sony mount, I doubt other lenses can give results....
Someone experienced ultra wide angle lenses on Sony a7xx ?

Ellbogen: So many significant drawbacks, such as auto focus speed, unreliable face detection, video outdated and yet getting a gold award ???

Skanter, of course the Sony has a big big big drawback : the lenses.
And this Sony drawback is fuji 's strength
So you really believe there is more than one decent lens for the apsc Sony line ?
Unfortunately not.

Gesture: Doesn't anyone make a 4/3rds or APS-C camera that handles more like a smart phone?

Ben herrman, the Canon M series offer reach here in the reviews the first place for bodies having as much cons as for..... poor dynamic, sluggish operation, no lens range, etc. Better have a smartphone actually.
