If the IQ is as good - or better - than my ZS3, then I'll buy it.

We live in a time of tattoos, body piercings, shaved heads, and multi-color hair.
Gee, this doesn't seem so dorky after all.

maxnimo: On a more serious note, Nikon and Canon just announced they are closing their camera business permanently. Competition from smartphones killed their profits. So sad.

Not true!
I just read on the net that Canon is introducing a camera with replaceable sensors.
Want to shoot sports? Plug in the 1.6x sensor.
Want to shoot landscapes? Plug in the FF sensor.

I'm sure Canon will make millions!

Fascinating article, thanks for sharing.
Btw, did you ask them what new lenses are in the works?

I've always thought that air to air shooting was the ultimate in aviation photography. Richard does a great job of it.

Marty4650: The keyword here is "magazine" and not "photography."

ALL magazines are in deep trouble today. Literally hundreds have disappeared and were replaced by websites.

And please notice the cover price. In 1937 it was 25 cents, today most special interest magazines cost $6.95 or more, which even after accounting for inflation is a lot more. And they are competing against websites that are essentially free.

And not only magazines. Newspapers, too.
I work for a large company that in the past 2 years hired 60 or more people. Most are in their 20s or 30s. Not once in the past couple of years have I seen any of them read a newspaper or magazine - zero. Hard to believe but true.

Attractive image but the plane needs some prop blur.

A sharp & well detailed photo. Fills the frame well.

Beautiful plane and background. Having prop blur would have made a more natural looking image.

I'd sure like to get my hands on the prototypes.

tkbslc: There sure seem to be some radial leaps of logic made below to equate Nikon screwing up a product line to the death of the DSLR and all compact cameras.

Maybe Nikon and Canon will have to merge. Merge or die.

My feelings exactly. Man, I really wanted this camera.

Aroart: That is awesome looking. Looks like something a Stormtrooper would shoot with...

I think it looks pretty cool also. The color, finish, and controls reminds me of something the Apollo moon astronauts used.

Same camera as the S7 ?
That's ok, I'll wait for the S9.

What, can't Sony build lenses?

Pretty cool looking camera. Would like to have one just to display.

BigBen08: Then fix the battery and bring back the Note 7.

I also came close to buying the Note 7. The Note 5 is still available but it's a bit expensive.
I ended up buying the LG Stylo 2 Plus. Has a stylus for note taking, 5.7 inch screen, 2900mAh replaceable battery, micro SD card up to 200GB, finger print reader, and NFC. Sells for $240.

Drawbacks (well, for some)...a 1280x720 display - pixel density 258 ppi.
Not the brightest screen, and the laser AF feature has been removed. Also the gpu isn't cutting edge. But game playing has decent frame rates. Gets above average reviews on the net.
