Rumor presented under News. Hmm. Do we need a new title for this section of dpreview -- Things We Hear?

xoio: Nice tweaks, but I look at my FZ1000 and still feel satisfied. :)

And that's a good thing. Goes to the value of your camera for the long haul.

barrym1966: Sorry Nikon but Bluetooth is not WiFi whichever way you try to spin it

Doesn't 'Have' imply normal use?

Deliberate and fraudulent, not "misleading."

PoohBill: Since many of us own the 75-300, can you compare the physicality?

Twice as long, three times the weight. Hmm. It doesn't look that much larger - big-handed model?

In reply to:

lambert4: The offset mount to shift weight to a lower area is nice. I use the capture pro and like it but with a larger lens it does tilt anddig into my chest. I havealso used it as a QR on my monopod and its convenient. Could be a nice set up.

I wonder if you could do the same thing with the capture pro, using a strip of leather and a snap. Wrap the strip over your belt, stap in closed with a two inch tongue hanging down, then hang the capture pro on the tongue.

Beat Traveller: Jony Ive has been ruining everything I appreciate about Apple's skeuomorphic design with his pastel colours. Marc Newson will fit right in there.

Thank you! I'd been asking Why? since the announcement.

Now I understand.

It does seem Aperture has been abandoned.

From the perspective of an admitted "lazy" and "total amateur" photographer the pairing values make sense. Saves me from ploughing through the minutiae (yup, "lazy") offered by the "pros" (yup again, "total amateur") just looking for good matches with my next buy.

Please do. Thank you for asking.
