iAPX: Waow!

Classically with 3 fixed lens, 35mm (probably the most used), 135mm and 50mm.
And choosing a body that is as discreet as possible when shooting.

Clear and simple choices, and a lesson from an old-school photographer that take pictures of the most powerful persons of the world in many different contexts.
Also, its photos are clear and simple, informative.

a presidential photographer has also access to 'premium locations', 'distance' and 'prepared environment'
if you are mr bee from arizona (like all of us) we might need to consider a long zoom (don't wanna say a long fast prime) because Barak is gonna be maybe far away, and in case it accidently happens to be very close 1-2 primes or whatever you got in the bag.

it's like Safari, Tom never been safariing brings all his arsenal, what if, what if, if if if, if, what if the Tiger is 500mt away at the closest point, what if i end up in a face to face, what if half the way (and it's not wrong questions, Tom doesn't know whats gonna happen), while Jerry lives in the tiger backyard and the territory is fenced, yes he needs 1 or 2 things and he knows what to do and where to go, he also got a spy hole right under the tiger's pillow

Timur Born: I wonder why so many f/1.8 come out first? To offer a bunch of inexpensive lenses for the new system/mount?

When starting a new ecosystem you might wanna provide the basics = camera and working lenses
Start with a5-6k package very few ppl will join, for more expensive glass there will be plenty of time ( first jump into our cart )

Sonyshine: Do people still use Flickr?

I am surprised after years of Yahoo mis-management that it is still going. I left it years ago.

I'm not surprised smartphones dominate. That is how the vast majority of people take and share their photographs.

i believe it's because the majority of people from teenagers to old chaps in casual events or everyday life, are just 'snap shooters'
while people willing to carry around a dslr+lens(es)+etc are a minority, professionals and enthusiasts.
However it should not be advertised that the most used 'camera' is an iphone(or whatever smartphone) because it's so good, no, it's not, it's just good for 'that' people in these circumstances.

On article Nikon reportedly eliminating 1000 jobs in Japan (509 comments in total)
In reply to:

jhinkey: As a long time Nikon user I've seen them be terribly non-creative and non-adaptive.
My recent $$ have all gone to Sony and the A7 series. If Nikon had made a full frame mirrorless, even still the size of the D8XXX series I would have bought that.
But they seem to be a slow lumbering dinosaur unfortunately.

Adapt or die, and they don't seem to be adapting too well . . .

so i would do :

Nikon 1 J Serie (basic-entry)
D7xxx (better than the above, not of the below))
N1 V Serie (pro-reach in smaller package, expensive)
D5xx (state of the art DX)

then 2 or 3 FF, and that's it

D750 (if really they want a FF entry level, im not sure)
D8xx (a super machine not costing as much as the D5)

D5

* and dont make 1000 N1 lenses, just a set (4-5-6), the rest will just have to buy FF lenses with adaptor (* new revised one, with all focus points and no limitations)

anyone else can use a smartphone

@Sonyshine, i agree, but think-see how great potential it had (Nikon 1)
if they kept developing the V3(4,5,6) and they put an adapter FT-1 with more than a central focus spot, masses would pick up THIS SETUP instead than DX+long tele, for the reach matter = it would cut their revenues on many Dslrs

they limited and apparently assassinated it because it's one or the other (of course if money is no issue one buys a D5 and a D810 with a 800 5.6e, but in most of cases, money is an issue)

imho, they should wipe out most of the DX line (i'd keep the D7xxx serie, D500)
not sure about the entry level FF, and go ALL IN on the N1 models

Fuji decided to skip the FF, so to have significant distance inbetween formats (Fuji Crop to MediumFormat, skipping FF)

Nikon is doing everything (coolpix, dl's, n1, videocrap, dx, fx, watermelons and bananas)

JeanPierre Martel: Dinosaurs have let room to smaller mammals. So IBM, Kodak and Polaroid are not the big hardware companies they used to be.

Reflex cameras are doomed, replaced by mobile phones and ILCs. The top managers at Nikon didn’t foresee this evolution. So their company will disappear. That’s the tough rule of evolution.

Leica produces less than Nikon i suppose, still is strong and alive
aka, you don't need to produce these new video cams (crap), point and shoot, DL's and the entry level dslrs, still, STILL, you can build D7xxx, D500, FF, and top notch lenses, and still survive nicely, because a good part of nikonites (or canonites) needs and wants MUCH MORE than a smartphone from now to 20 years (tech)

FD: My 995 euros are waiting since feb this year for a 24-500DL
It would be my first Nikon as a Canon shooter since 1979 ;-)

imagine if it has a technical problem (of any kind as nikon history shows) and you will be fighting with it for another 6-12 months

scott_mcleod: I'm sure I'll get reamed for this, but I'm also pretty sure I'm not the only one who wants to know: where are they made? I looked at the images of the lens mounts but I couldn't see any engravings (I guess they were out of the shot)

might it be that xx% is made in China, the final assembly in Japan

Photomonkey: Congratulations to Nikon for two solid lenses.
The 70-200 is a solid update and the 19PC-E adds a much needed lens to the range.

The carping about price is expected but, IMO, short sighted.

Apart from the issues of exchange rates and competition, both these lenses are industrial strength lenses designed to give decades of reliable service in difficult conditions while enjoying parts and repair support for decades.

That is what one is paying for when purchasing a professional lens.

seems a spot for a company rather than your own opinion from the consumers side (because you are a consumer, unless you tell me you work for nikon or associates)

In reply to:

shooter45: My 70-200 f/4 is sharper and has a much better VR than the current f/2.8.
This is too pricey and I really hope that Sigma give us the newest version in this range and I
will buy that one right away. I am also waiting for the new Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 which I believe, will
be cheaper and better than the Nikon.

at some point in life i might have bought this lens
if im not because of the price, my 2-3K € will not go into nikon's pockets (either terrific price change, sigma new sport 70-200 or some other hobbies)
fine for them fine for me

ZJ24: Just another perspective on price: If you're a professional shooter (I am 80% amateur) you could make the price of this lens back on one job or in a few weeks, with it contributing significantly to your income from sport, event and studio shooting for years to come.
In that way a $400 basic consumer zoom is far more expensive. I have a hairdresser friend who has $2500 scissors - her hand-made precision tool of choice every hour of every working day that has enabled award-winning work, meaning higher profile ... more income ... etc.

basicly you are saying 'producers, increase endlessly because with 1-5-24-46 salaries we can repay it anyways'
i don't think there is a performance difference (well i am guessing, but i hope who disagrees finds out if the performance is worth 800$(or about) on an already expensive lens) and dont take defences of nikon because THEY(producers) find every possible and impossible reasons to raise up the prices for the happiness of the Boss-Owners and Shareholders (and there is no performance increase in here -possibly in their brand new cars-, but rather to fund for their expensive lives )

Eric Hensel: I've always enjoyed the Forums here, for the unprecedented brilliance of the engineering experts in every thread; and now, what a bonus to find so many bona-fide marketing experts, simultaneously. Carry on -I need to get back to "The Art of the Deal"...

we cannot talk as experts but we can as owners of our wallets

LukeDuciel: What happens to Nikon? Is it because their sales drops so quick that they have to squeeze every loyal user dry? The price is ridiculous.

just dont buy, enjoy the v II or a sigma or tammy
Nikon will be doorbelling at everysingle door with a 600$ discount in few months to a couple of years

In reply to:

ugotvijay: $800 over 5 to 8 years is not going to be a big deal (we change 3 iPhones in the same time!!). I would have happily paid this price if the lens weighed under 1 kg. For a mere 90 grams difference and with optical quality already quite good in ver. II, I don't see much value in getting the ver. III

The only way Nikon is going to make money now is from higher sales of the older versions!

nikon is going to make money on this lens even discounted heavily, while they are not going to make a lot of money on the videocameras and copters they launched - just see the 80-400, -400$ forever
