SystemAgnostic: If it has stepless aperture/iris control, then it does to the front of my list of cameras to get. However I doubt it.

previous models had "declicked" aperture options....I am sure this will have it too

mike kobal: A logical design for manufactures with existing lenses. Nikon take a look at this, add fully articulated screen, put a swivel Evf in the right place and I'll be all over it.

66GTO: Very unimpressive photos here are probably doing a poor representation of what this lens might be capable of.

real photographers rejoice, looking at these samples, there is still a place for us on this planet 🙌🙌🙌🙌

Since the 1 system has been briefly mentioned, curious if and when we'll see a v4 or v5

MiraShootsNikon: I bet Reuters is really trying to say, in a "Minnesota-nice" sorta way, that they've been getting a bunch of *TERRIBLY* over-cooked images baked from RAW.

You know: "Hey, why not just keep it to JPEGs and a small adjustment-or-two with the ol' Photoshop levels panel, okey?" is passive-aggressive code for "If we receive ONE more craptastic HDR-wannabe image with ACR-Lightroom Shadows slammed to 100 and Highlights yanked all the way down, our editors will have a collective coronary."

It might have more to do with trying to limit the temptation to alter content rather then excessive curve and level adjustments

bfrankpoto: I just had my editor at Reuters confirm this. As someone who shoots for Reuters, and every dealing with every single person I've interacted with has been incredibly professional, I fully accept their statement at face value. It will be faster to use JPG, and will make it more difficult to hide over-manipulated images. I've never shot JPG before, so I have some learning' to do.

When I used to shoot for Corbis years ago there was no time to shoot raw and process . We shot jpegs plus raw o just jpegs then uploaded the jpegs as soon as we could, I don't think this idea is totally new, what's new is the rule to outlaw raw

Now the future pro will be much better off with two iPhones, a wide angle attachment and an unlimited data plan

Pandimonium: yeah let's peep at pixels. It's not as sharp as the rx100 IV. There i said it. But then more range so no need to crop :p

this studio scene appears to be slightly soft to begin with, it looks softer at any ISO in any field I roll the magnifier over in raw....
