People that buy Apple products now what they are getting into. Simple as that. No different than people that buys Mercedes, BMW, Audi and other high end cars. They don't do the maintenance themselves. People that like to tinker buys item that they know they can play with.

It all comes down to corporate greed.

What's the difference in trading older cameras for a new one? Camera manufacturers gives incentive too (Oly, Pany, CaniKon, Sony). So are the rest of computer manufacturers like Dell, HP, car companies. etc. all of them does it. Are all those companies greedy too?

PaulSnowcat: Smartphones can't replace a normal camera... Yet, Xiaomi IS including some real innovations in their products. Bravo, Xiaomi! I used the first Mi MIX and it was a very nice phone with a fully ceramic body - something Apple has claimed to be impossible earlier that year...

iPhone has better security on their devices. The Apple vs FBI case in 2015/16 where Apple won't help the FBI to unlock someone's phone even with a court order.

WOW! They could re-mane the red one "Iron Man Limited Edition" and charge a few hundred $$$ more. Put a gold colored lens and maybe Tony Stark I mean Robert Downy Jr. will actually might get one.

Just my thought, maybe Tony Stark is funding these "Limited Edition Series".

GO PENTAX!!!

One_Oldman_4U: Oppo or OnePlus would have a better partnership as they make make better phones than Vivo, OnePlus 8 PRO and Oppo Find X2 are excellent smartphones.

@ D King - Yes I know, they all belong to a parent company, BBK Electronics and they also own RealMe. But why not pick the better company to do business/partner with? From what I observe when I used to travel to Asia, Oppo and OnePlus is more popular than Vivo.

kristof93: That pricing is ridiculously uncompetitive. This lens will produce similar results to the recent €1500-2000, ~600mm telephoto zooms, on a dead end mount capped at 20mp.

It takes special skill to use a lens like this. "Wildlife/Bird photographer wannabe's" use consumer grade equipment thinking they are pro's. This is not for the average consumer.

Similar comments when the Olympus 300/4.0 PRO came out.

Question:

If 2 people are out and about shooting, one with FF the other with m4/3, same FL lens (100-400) and both are using same type of light/spot meter. When both shooter measured the light of their subject, they both came up with same aperture and shutter, let say 1/2000 of a second at F5.6 on both meter. The m4/3 user set his camera according to what his meter read. Will the FF shooter set his camera to the setting from his meter read or is he going to multiply it by 2 and set at 1/4000 at F11 so they will be equivalent? M4/3 shooter set his tele at 150mm and FF shooter set his at 300mm. Will the result be nearly identical?

@ HowaboutRAW

I do understand that one can carry a good P&S dedicated camera + a iPhone or any smartphone of one's choosing. BUT, the majority of smartphone users now does not want to carry both that's why they are willing to pay a for a good smartphone with decent/good camera for their use and purpose. Only us (amateurs/enthusiasts/pros and semi pros) care about IQ, sharpness, etc. and carry our smartphone + our ILC's + high end P&S so we can record the moments. Smartphone users couldn't care less to some extent. They to take their selfies, their vacation memories, events, special moments and others and instantly shares them with family and friends on their social media. Instant self gratification for them and are happy.

Karroly: Typical smartphone IQ...
Yawn...

@ Karroly a
The purpose of these smartphone cameras is not to compete to regular cameras. Just like the old P&S that these replaced, to take photos of special occasions and interests and instantly share them to family and friends to social media. People that uses these don't print and they will only view it on the phones or tablets.

@ dan_darkroom
Yes this a photographic site. Are we going to compare m4/3 or APS-C or FF to Medium Format? We have to compare apples to apples and not apples to pineapples. Just like a car, you can't compare a Corolla to a Bently. They're both fine cars depending on the user/driver

Jefftan: i don't care what others said.
To o my eye, iphone extreme hdr and fake color look ugly.
pixel win on both more natural HDR look and color

The people that uses smartphone cameras (iPhone and others) view their photos on a smartphone screen or at most, a tablet. The main purpose of smartphone photography is to instantly share their memories to families and friends through social media. 99% of the 100s of millions of smartphone users don't print anyway.

I use my ILC camera serious photos and I also take a snapshot of same scene with my smartphone to instantly share to family and friends.

The Ricoh and Coolpix A or any other dedicated cameras are great but I cannot use them to call/text family and friends, share photos instantly, check emails, surf the web, etc. like I can with a smartphone with a good camera.

That will be a waste of a good beer! Granted it is a good beer, and if that's the case, it is alcohol abuse.

On article Nikon Coolpix P1000: what you need to know (600 comments in total)

I agree. Either they are threatened or they are just not artistic enough to see what this type of camera can do. Every cameras has its purpose. It has limitations whether it be the the sensor size, the size, weight, lens, etc. etc. etc. There will be people that will buy this camera because it suits their needs and they want it and not everyone has the same needs or wants.

People that has never use and shoot longer than 400mm FF don't know what their missing. This focal length and longer opens up a different type shooting experience.
