Come on its pretty marketing bait and you all did bite... Now Yashica is just a name now, the talk of a "big comeback" is a joke and Dpreview surely knows but this site is about click bait now... Just go to Cameralabs instead..

Could have been the most important product in a long long time BUT there is one critical lacking feature, image stabilization.... They should have made it 10 percent bigger and included that. Without its not really relevant. Why bother if it needs to go on a bulky stabilizer anyhow

Wow just wow. It's amazing how big the cultural differences still are on this small planet.... ANY communication bureau in Europe suggestion this would have been flat out fired and considered immensely incompetent

LEGACYMOMENTSPHOTOGRAPHY: LOL i still use a 2004 canon 20D for weddings and guess what it still does great.

That seems somewhat unprofesional

DonParrot: Just another way of isolating your subject. And I dislike it just as mutch as the isolation created by fast lenses. Sports take place in a cetrain environment. And that's what the pictures should show.

That pictures are a precise representations of "reality" is a incredibly misunderstanding and very often produces a boring result

They are amateurs...and the market will get rid of Nikon and canon soon enough. They have missed the mirrorless train so hard it's a joke. Look at the dslr line the cams are basically the same as 6 years ago it's a joke. Now if they would have focused on the 18-50, given it great 4k AND mic input AND stabilizer they would have made a home run. But those amateurs just can't see the forrest for the trees

noflashplease: It looks fascinating and I might even buy one if it was a Lomography or MINT product. However, this is coming from a part of Eastern Europe without any obvious production infrastructure for this type of project. I'm also a bit concerned about the bellows material and I question just how the film extraction mechanism will work?

The prototype looks a little too slick and the best sample images don't look like the results you'd expect from an amateur meniscus lens. A little too good, if you ask me. Color me suspicious.

Wow a bit of prejudicsm regarding the "eastern block". You know what people actually live full lives there and beat the US to space..

iainlea: They announce a new camera but without pricing! no way to budget for it so will wait for another companies product that can at least get the marketing right...

Call out to Nikon - fire and rebuild your QA and Marketing departments.

Ohh and please include the design and engineer team as well :0). I recommend only keeping the lady in charge of the food truck, I wont blame her for Nikons total lack of innovation. Nikon are trying to become the new Kodak, in that they seem terrific.

jagge: I can for the life of me dont understand why Nikon still exists ?? I did start out with a Nikon D50, still have it great camera back then. I since moved to M43. Its not ideal i do miss ceartain aspects of APS\C But I would ceartainly never ever go back to Nikon, Sony would be the way or maybe even Fuji. WHy ?? Because they innovate. Look at the new XT from Fuji, fantastic inspiring tool. Same tor the 6xxx line of Sony, constant evolution. But Nikon consumer segment.... its a joke. One model can hardly be recognized from the other. This is still basically the D50 housing. They basically change sensors that's it. Yeah I know I put it a bit on the spot, but look at the competition and its so obvious how absolutely still Nikon is standing. I cant for the life of me understand how they can still sell those, kudos to the marketing department. Some years ago I would advice buying Nikon. When i help friends and family now its Sony, Olympus or Panasonic for sure. For a enthusiast Fuji for sure... Nikon is somewhat a joke.

Well you should get updated. First your argument makes zero sense. You talk about "professionals... you realize this is a Nikon D5xxx we are talking about right ?? Nothing professional about it. Now you are not updated on lenses either Panasonic / Olympus surely can match the Nikon lense world, many of their optics are at least on par some surely surpassing their Nikon equivalents. You are not updated. Now stating something about EVF from the beginning of EVF seems a bit defensive as well. I have used 5D, and several Nikon APSC, i prefer BY FAR the viewfinder of my Oly EM5 mark II. Very very soon they will be better than optical ones in every aspect. Lag, forget it, get updated. Versatile... come on man you are soo not updated, my EM5 mark II offers everything a Nikon will do, educate yourself. But your post surely gives an answer to the question about why Nikon still exists, lucky for them you are not the only photographer who is not updated on the current state of technology.

ohhh and I did not even know about the Pentax K-70... Value for money that surely seems to be the K-70 over the D5600. Just look at the comparisson at the review it seems to be a step above and at lower price. Pentax gives you 95 % magnification a big deal, 2 control wheels, WEATHERPROOFING actually that is a bomb at that price range. The D5600 offers.. well precisely the same as that series of cams for the last 8 years plus a new sensor.. To me that is very uninspiring.

Hey Guys. I get your points but I cant say I agree fully. Now reliability for sure is important i get that. BUT it is not true to assume innovation is the opposite of innovation, kind af a false premise. Then there is the value for money issue.. is that really so. Panasonic and M43 offers incredible value for money and much more innovation for sure. I know some of those are dirt cheap and I do realize that they use great sensors no doubt, still they are so uninspiring and they do hold the photographer back on many accounts.

Anyhow I think Nikon just lives off peoples habits, and a old trusted brand name. One of these days the modern world will catch up to them i think, and they they will drop like a rock. One example. They have now put forward a couple of interesting compact shooters in the DL line. They could have been great for video BUT no mic input. They had a golden opportunity to do something competitive that panasonic and sony would NOT do since they would compete with their own higher end products. Nikon are horrible at video so they would compete with nothing except competitors but they just dont get it. I would advice that as a new slogan for Nikon.'' We just dont get it ''.

Anyhow one thing I think Nikon still is king at that is Flash photography. That reliability is what I truly miss at Nikon. The rest, nahhhhh.

JSmitty: watching this makes me realize, more than ever, that Image Quality and equipment mean practically nothing.

pictures are about emotion and memory.

Your posts seem to contradict themselves quite a lot. You read all his books, and back the statement that he was highly perfectionistic regarding gear, but still claims it has no relevance....

The logic is a bit lost

barrym1966: APsc camera's are for non professionals and non professionals don't want to manual focus. Samyang fail

Your statement makes me smile. No one want to manually focus, the idea that manual focus is a hallmark of professionals is a bit of a joke

In reply to:

Richard Franiec: For not much more $$ the Canon 100-400MkII on 7DMkII looks like a steal at respective focal lengths (in the APS-C format) if one is concerned with image quality based on this gallery. Most likely the Canon lens would do better with 2X extender on FF in exact FL equivalence.

Not sure if the M4/3 efforts trying to compete with larger formats for reach is the best way to spend money, smaller primes and zooms, sure, but this?.
Even with relatively compact size, I have difficult time trying to imagine this lens on GM1/GM5 as far as shooting experience is concerned.

This lens seems like a competition with better mega-zoom compacts and cameras like Nikon1 than with APS-C or FF formats.

Right so you really honestly think that gm1 users are the target with this one?? Try and think it through

On article What's missing? Ming Thein on the state of mirrorless (744 comments in total)

Just as a reminder here is Dpreview concluding remarks on the mirrorless Samsung NX1:

Not only does the NX1 feature the largest BSI sensor we've ever seen, but it also offers the highest pixel count of any APS-C body. The combination results in excellent image quality and - just as important - the NX1 also incorporates one of the most extensive and effective on-sensor phase detection systems we've seen. All this, along with the magnesium alloy body and top-plate LCD info display, means that the NX1 can compete with the best APS-C models on the market.
