jmmgarza: Talk about a niche market lens.

By the way, why don't many of you nerdy posters show your mug. I guess... you only like to be on one side of the camera. Too bad. Show your face!

@Josh152 HDSLR video shooters prefer MF lenses. No serious videographer uses AF when shooting. It's not photographers "clinging" to their MF lenses, it's professional indie videographers using cameras like 5D Mk II or 7D who will buy such a lens. The Zeiss ZE and ZF lenses are 1/3 the price of Ziess CP Cine lenses and are dedicated EF and F mount so they don't require adapters. No. Zeiss sells these lenses by the boatload and it's not just still photographers who are their market.

peterwr: A quick question I've never managed to get an answer to: does anyone here know, officially how come Zeiss don't make these manual lenses for Sony cameras? It would seem logical, given their tie-up.

@Fletch50mm It's really too bad that Sony has discontinued the A900. Such a nice body. Either they are out of the FF game, or some new FF model in the works.

Niche? Yes, because only a select few light fast wide angle lenses (Note sarcasm). It's not a niche market if they are extremely popular lenses, which the Zeiss are. Not everybody want a lousy zoom.

It's hard to have an avatar when you don't have a cool goatee. :)

JohnMatrix: OK, I'll say it: How much??

For that price it would have to be significantly better than the 24/L II.

Don't know about this one, but many of the Zeiss ZE and ZF lenses are better (sharper, bokeh, well-dampened MF ring) than the Canon and Nikon equivalents. Video shooters love them as the have really smooth MF rings, and nice bokeh, and are bitingly sharp. And they are much cheaper than the great Zeiss CP Cine lenses.

On article Canon USA announces Pixma Pro-1 12-ink A3+ printer (21 comments in total)

I had a feeling Canon would introduce a new professional printer as they are heavily discounting and offering rebates on the Pro9000. When I bought a 5D Mk II a few days ago, I got an offer of a really substantial rebate for the Pro9000. This new one looks much smaller, and significantly better.

peatantics: Don't know if anyone has thought about this yet, but, who is going to see the work done with such a camera? What's next, every one with a fly in part of the same media network called wi-five-r or why fly? That is the first part now for the second part of that question where all those connected users are so busy shooting basically the same stuff, skiing, windsurfing, surfing, biking, o.k. the people and the scenery change but to the remote viewer it all looks the same, so the novelty value is in, the greater the risk, the greater the number of youtube hits. I think someone is go-an-ta die, filming their own death with one of those things strapped to his or her head and soon, if it has not already happened, also think about poor mom or dad or friends and family at the funeral seeing the victim in their final life moment's entry into their journal of discoveries. I see only tears at the extremities of risky business activity. What about YOU?

Who is gonna see the work done with a GoPro? You obviously haven't seen the many serious videos on Vimeo, some of them by professional videographers, using this little camera. If you need a POV shot, or attached to a car for a chase, or the oodles of applications in skateboard, snowboard, skiing films. I like how when people aren't familiar with something, they knock it.

The design looks like an old iPod Nano but with a bigger screen. Being influenced by Apple is one thing, copying it another. Zeiss lens, that pretty cool. To bad it's a phone, but I guess the line between the 2 devices continues to be blurred.

dougster1979: Sony nex 5n better iq, better sensor, better iso...

I have the feeling it is largely NEX-5N owners who are knocking the A-77/NEX-7's sensor. My feeling in most situations I'd rather have the extra resolution (and better feeling body) than perhaps a 1/3 of a stop better high ISO performance. At low ISO's the A77/NEX-7 images look extraordinary.

dgc4rter: I can't see, for the life of me, why anyone would want to buy this in favour over a D3100 which is cheaper, accepts any current Nikon lenses and isn't that much larger and heavier. It's also got a 14 MP APS-C sized sensor. It sits better in the hand and has an optical viewfinder as well as a tilt screen.

There's a few technological advances with the AF and video but nothing truly deal breaking. And are "soccer mums" going to be bothered about switching lenses. They may as well get the D3100 so their hubby's collection of Nikon glass will fit on it.

Sorry Nikon. I love their DSLRs, having both the D700 and D7K and I know I'm not the intended market, but this 1 series will not be a market leader by a long chalk. It might find its way into the heart of Nikon die-hards and the "more money than sense and style" Porsche Cayenne owners but unless they could have brought out a Sony NEX-7 beater, they should stick to what they're good at.

How about 1080/60i for slow-motion video? If your a HDSLR shooter, this would make a good b-camera due to the variety of frame rates over the D3100.

Mloscalzo91: I mean, I don’t know how to feel about this. Are the productions and release date of these cameras really such a big deal that we have to lose sleep over it?

I could be completely clueless here and not thinking about this from a smarter point of view and if that is the case, someone please explain why this is a big deal when the flood is clearly going to do more damage than that to the camera industry.

@fad Maybe you shouldn't be on a camera review website then. Why not BBC or Reuters? You're so concerned with the flood victims you decided to stop by DPR?

This is a digital camera website. Nobody is minimizing the impact of the flood on the people of the region, just trying to inform customers.

A Bull: To me the real question is its Dynamic Range figures. 18mp may be a bit low but I used to have the old Canon 2.74mp & myself & all the worlds other pros where doing full double page spreads.

This camera is head & shoulders above any other full frame 35mm sensor in DR & cleanness of the image.

Because canon RAW format is the best this means that you can increase the MP in PS with very low loss in quality. Plus can recover badly exposed images far better.

With is the merge of the 1 range. Canon SLR will soon all be FF 35mm

Canon are planning a whole new product line & mount call the G-mount this will allow for sensors up to sizes a fraction bigger than the Leica S2.

With all new lenses.

This is due to the fact that even the mark 3 lenses can not with a 35mm mount resolve res over approx 44mp.

With a 1.5X mount & bigger glass & sensors canon will be able to push easily up to 80Mp to start.

So this will be the studio - medium format camera.

Dynamic Range & Clean Image? The Nikon D3X is still the king of DR and the D3s of low noise. The will not change any time soon, until perhaps the D4.

How about denial?

Graystar: DPReviews image viewing system is soooooo tedious! Can't you make something that doesn't require so many clicks?

In any case...alright, so the V1 images look like they came from a P&S. No surprise there.

Whenever you have to support older browsers like IE 6, it's hard.

You don't need to buy this lens. This lens with the power zoom is mainly for video. The normal kit zoom is much less $$$, albiet not as good for video. Honestly, many videographers shoot with with primes w/ fast apertures.

Which P&S is that? I'll buy it. And don't say the XZ-1, because it's not the case.

Some of them look really good. The profile image of the girl for example. The homeless guy, the statue of the astronaut. Impressive. Good work. Thanks.

Camp Freddy: Crumby image quality.

"not aimed at enthusiasts" say Nikon

Who pays this kind of money and ISN*T an enthusiast??

No DOF control? I have DOF control with my XZ-1 because it has a fast lens. But turn my XZ-1 up past ISO 400 and the noise is horrible. Try to shoot anything that moves with the XZ-1. If you're lucky 1 out of 10 will be sort of sharp. That's why people will spend $$$ for this camera. And for the cost-conscious, there is the J1.

bryanbrun: If the Nikon V1 had a F2.0 kit lens that allowed for DOF control, then it might have a chance.

The Nikon kit lens is 10-30mm at 3.5 max aperture on a tiny little sensor. This is weak, weak, weak.

Who wants to spend $900 dollars on a camera and end up with a grand total of 20mm field of view control with an aperture of 3.5 which allows for no DOF control?

No one. There is no market for the Nikon V1.

Nikon needs to release a real kit lens, without it the camera can't even compete with XZ-1, LX5, so just forgot about competing with the artistic control that the m4/3 and NEX allow.

It's funny how that "tiny little sensor" is not only competing, but except for the G3, exceeding the performance of your m43 camera.
