Why no VR (after all it's a heavy beast) - for the price it should have been included

Made in China but damned expensive...it's beyond me that Nikon have forgotten the great value photographers place on 'Made In Japan' - like makers such as Canon, Fuji and many others

The potential to use existing xf lenses makes this development even more fascinating

A clever strategic move...the FF market is pretty full and I would argue not going anywhere anymore. Fuji have missed out the middleman and gone for medium format - given X developments to date and their long experience in the medium format film market. It really looks promising and worth waiting for

An FF version of the X Pro1 would be most welcome, but with fixed and variable length lenses.

sportyaccordy: I'm really shocked. Hopefully a Df-10 is coming with everything fixed. This would have been much better with a cheaper FX sensor and a split focus prism, along with better sorted controls and a smaller body. It's amazing that this has no film but is so much bigger than the F3 it's supposed to emulate. Oh well.

Don't understand that with so many demerit points it warrents a score of 81! And this is definitely not a D4 at half the price. In fact it's actually more expensive with far fewer features, capability and build.

Juraj Lacko: At high ISO this camera delivers for sure.

These images are very disappointing in terms of sharpness and colour. Not good at all

stevens37y: Nikon is desperately searching for a niche market: nostalgic people who are willing to pay more for less.

less is good but for $3000?

Nukunukoo: Nikon Rumors has rescinded all reported specifications, including pricing. The video above is in truth a new set of Nikon binoculars, great for the Scottish landscape. The images are so clear that it leaves a perfect picture in your mind...

cousin itt: Any chance of some f/22 shots of blue sky?

I too wonder why a full review is being carried out of this especially when others are still in the long-term 'preview' stage. The only interest to me and others is: is it fixed? Finally, will sample images be any different?

Stone Roses - I wouldn't lose sleep over not photographing them.I do not sell the images I take, rather, I use them for my own music website where free access is available to anyone who wants them including the artists (who often do partake). . As Barney B stated, I do what I do for the love of music (I'll sign anything to shoot a great act) and the quest to try and grab 'that moment' on stage. This means that I only photograph those acts that I believe are good and cross fingers for a photo pass (I also write reviews). Live music photography has become arguably the most difficult type of photography in a non-war scenario (lighting, environment, limitations, attitudes) but few acts/labels actually know or care. Finally, at most concerts (UK) I find 90% of photographers are freelance and not working directly with any music media - i.e. speculative. However, they usually get photo priority over me who does not sell and use images for my own website/fans...
