Lightcapture: Darn, $3200 down the drain like this, purely just for my sick viewing pleasure?!

@Japeso,
When you think this could work, after they handled the open camera with bare hands, just read anything about ESD. (Short for Electro Static Discharge) As an electronic engineer, I think the camera will work again, after reassembling, but not for long. When modern electronics is not handled with ESD protection, it can be defect, beyond repair, within a few months. Nobody will link the defect to the bad handling during repairs.
Never open modern electronic gear, without ESD protection, to make sure you don't add any extra damage.

We can analyse the anatomy of future cameras to death. We can write what we want, but that won't change what camera manufactures can sell. If in the near future something really revolutionary will happen, don't expect this to come from a established camera manufacturer. They try all kinds of stuff, in small steps, to see where the market is going to. Not as long as they are still selling enough, to survive and can make enough money to develop new cameras and lenses, they go on the way they do for years to come.
The phone market was not changed by Nokia, Motorola or Sony Ericsson but by a firm who had never made a phone before. I still remember every one saying in 2007 an some years to follow " it is no phone and it will be gone soon". How wrong were they?
And what camera we like or buy has less to do what others tell, and more with what we expect from it.
For a short while I have thought of buying a mirrorless, but only for a very short time. Perhaps the next time I buy a camera?

I see, some could have done it better, but they don't show their results. This photo is great, and to my knowledge a first in this proportions. Great job, nice result. Creative mind and a tough job.

It must be a h..k of a camera, but no matter what focal length, out of reach for me.

Could have been staged, could be photoshop, or just a lucky shot. For me it does not matter, I like it very much.
Coming on the end of the whole series, I like most shots, independent what camera was used. This lens end on my wish list.

Stanny1: Wow, just think how bad a little 4:3 sensor is!

The size if a APS-C sensor is about 40 % of the full frame. The size of a Four thirds is only 26 % compaired to the full frame.
To get a 3 times 2 picture you only use 23 % compaired to the FF.
15 % less Then a APS-C looks not much, but absolute between the APS-C and the Four Thirds camera, you again loose about 40% light.

HarrieD7000: The Transcend cards transfer RAW on my cam, for more than a year now. It is not done with a monster speed, but it works. The jpg files are transfered with more than a gigabyte a second to my iPad. 4 and iPhone.

You are right. I made a mistake it should be 1 mega byte a second. Sorry for that error. And respect you saw it. I think it is to late to change the error now.

Great sharpness, good separation from the back ground. Bokeh could be better, but for a 24 mm it is great.
I hope all camera manufactures will be triggered to improve their lenses for a reasonable price, now the bigger sensors are demanding ever sharper glass.

In reply to:

Frank C.: dumbed down piece of photographic equipment for 2k$+... I don't think so! 1/8000 and 1/250 x-sync was around decades ago, srry today it's fuel injectors, not webers! LOL

My camera has 1/8000 but between the 30K shots I took last years I could not find one I took at that speed. And with my SB-900 I can use my flash up to 1/8000 of a second, but who needs that?

If you don't like a Nikon, please don't show it this way.

Great, even with 20 mm just a little depth of field. This is what I like from a FF camera. This is why I more and more start liking the D750.

I do use he V700 for 5 years now, and I'm pleased about the result. I know I should not expect more than 2000 dpi when scanning negatives, but with SilverFast 8.1 Ai pro, I get very good results. Everyone is pleased when I show what can be made from an old picture or an old negative.
The 800 and 850, do have the same scaner, only the fluorescent light is replaced with LEDs, giving it a faster startup and perhaps a longer life?
For scanning negatives I should have bought a Nikon coolscan, when they were new, because now they cost twice as much. That would have been an investment.

I think it so a good camera, and will last for many years, but as an amateur I can't afford $ 2300 for a APS C camera. I'll use that money to buy a decent FF camera, on wich I can use my lenses. I can't make better pictures with another camera, but I think in detail my pictures will win from this camera.

Now it looks they can copy Apples marketing style, I hope they at least can bring something in Apple quality.
