Sakura Sakura: Nikon got their fingers burned with reactionary criticism of their Nikon 1. They are in for a spanking from some quarters if they go with a new mount or stick with the F mount. No doubt Canon will be in the same boat, though I'm not sure how their M series will fare if/when they go full frame mirrorless.

Clearly the world wasn't ready for 1" sensor back then, like many I read the criticism & moved on. Recently looking for a small compact camera, I took a gamble & bought a V1 for peanuts. having reviewed the images I was pleasantly surprised how good they are, I'm now a regular & satisfied user of the Nikon 1 system

I bought Olympus OM 28, 50 & 135mm for my Sony A7 for less than the cost of this Meike lens!

Sheeba, should it be renamed 'Vanity Unfair?'

This is never really going to be a cost effective practical solution for converting old film SLRs to digital. Ergonomics & quality issues will be problematical & then there's the reliability of these ageing cameras. The real question - Is there a market for a basic DSLR without all the bells & whistles that emulates a film SLR? How many folks would buy into that I wonder?

On reflection I may go for a Kickstarter funding just to supply the hole!

Hideous! What next, the Lego & Fisher Price edition? Or how about the sweaty Jock locker room edition, Trump's bound to grab one!

On article Enthusiast mirrorless camera roundup (2014) (316 comments in total)

I was looking over some recent images taken with my prehistoric Olympus EPL1. I doubt very much if you would notice much of a difference between an ELP1 print & that of most modern mirrorless.

I suspect in a year or two's time this Nikon 1 Series business model won't be much aclaimed either

Seems to me Nikon are misjudging & overpricing the Nikon 1 system. I just don't get it, the 4/3 system just as compact, cheaper & probably better image quality. In case you think I have a downer on Nikon I have a Nikon DSLR & love it.

Yet another camera without a viewfinder, when will these manufacturers take on board that LCD screens are useless in bright sunlight?

tkbslc: Everyone keeps whining about f5.6 vs f6.3. That's not even quite a third of a stop. It would mean the difference between shooting ISO 800 and ISO 966. You'd likely need a microscope to spot the DOF differences.

@T3 It's remarkable that you seem to infer & find so much amusement from the single self evident statement that a slower lens may not be so quick to focus.

Not about DOF, expect more focus hunting at lower light levels
