Michael Uschold: It is great to see an offering for photographers who care more about low light capabilities than making billboard-sized prints. I'd like to take it a step further, and have an offering for still photographers that leaves out all the fancyy video features. That might make the camera much more affordable, and a better fit for that [albeit possibly shrinking] market.

It is a bit ironic that they dramatically reduce pixels for stills, but still have the most possible for video. I wonder how much real value there is for 4K video, beyond marketing. Hardly anybody has 4k screens.

Agree. I bought the Nikon Df (used, of course) for just those reasons. Light, compact, maybe not as compact at the Alphas, but it is wonderful in low light and a just right sized file.

I just can't get behind the EVF just yet. The flicker is still annoying and tiring.

Curious what rev firmware is on the Nokia? Recent updates have improved the quite a bit, especially wrt detail.

jtan163: Despite owning and liking my D7000 and Nikon generally, I can't bring myself to like the 1 series.

I bought an OMD EM-5 instead. Although since I only bought it this week, I fully expect to regret doing so when the Photokina Olymus announcements occur.

It isn't an SLR replacement. It is a small camera that allows for easy snaps or fully obsessed manual shooting. It has great video capabilities and very impressive dynamic range for underexposing and lifting shadows in RAW files. This is a mild update to allow for a reboot of pricing. Still worth worth the asking if you use one.

Rob Rossington: I'm very impressed but I must ask..... Where's the metering mode switch? And where have the AE-L/AF-L Buttons gone?

Glad I am not the only one disappointed. I imagine they are now function button choices. Not liking that at all.

Focus point switch, as well...
