Dante Birchen: Nikon is just closing it's web store. You can buy Nikon camera's in regular camera stores in Brazil. They are just closing their direct sales channel, probably because it can't compete with dealer sales. The demise of Nikon is grossly exaggerated. The e-commerce channel was not the exclusive seller of Nikon camera's in brazil. First store I found in Rio: https://www.paixaocameras.com.br/45-profissionais-nikon

Welcome to the big banana republic of South America. As far as I know, there is an official dealer in Brasil, Udenio. Wich is as well the original dealer here in Argentina. To buy a camera here means you pay about 100% over it's NY price. But hey, they are nice guys, so they offer you to buy their stuff cash, so they don't pay taxes and you dont get the bill. you get a one year warraty (verbal). BTW, Canon does the same, saw it at a big event two weeks ago. Ecommerce is no good for tax avoidance..

Jozef M: That this lens doesn't work with certain cameras is a very bad start ... so will it work with future cameras??? To me, it seems this product isn't finished.

You're right. Perhaps Panasonic can solve it via software. I'm just tring to figure out why only those cameras won't work.

EPL5, EPL6, EM5, EPM2, IIRC, are the only 16mpx cameras without Focus Peaking, wich I think is a must if you want to focus anything at F0.95..

In reply to:

SteB: There are some choices I'd agree with, and some which are just odd, because they never seemed to have the impact implied. Rather that was the marketing buzz, but the actual camera did not have that impact.

Take the Kodak EasyShare V570. The implication was that other cameras couldn't fit a wide zoom range into a small body. But then the Panasonic TZ3 was realeased just after 2006 ended in January 2007 with a 28-300mm zoom in a relatively small body. It was revoluationary in that it spawned a whole new class of popular camera, the travel zoom. So omitting that, in favour of things like the Kodak is an oversight. Kodak are no more (but a name), whereas travel zooms have gone from strength to strength.

Perhaps, but Kodak's V570 has a 23mm wide angle lens, and that is unique IMHO,and IIRC, until today there's no other camera gone that wide. It was for many years the camera every real estate agent had to have on his/her pocket.
