tkbslc: XQD? There's only one company making them now. Seems like a gamble.

Nikon will have already bought the sensors before making the camera, so that doesn't matter. I can still use an old Nikon D300s today even though the sensors are out of production for probably 8 years. But if I suddenly can't find a memory card for it, the camera is a paper weight.

At least there is a second SD card slot, so I guess you have a bail out plan if XQD goes away.

JT26: Holy hell that is a huge lens!

It's smaller than Sony's 90mm macro.

Sezano: The finest is Too Big!

compared to what? It's shorter than Sony's 90mm FF macro lens, and about the same weight and diameter.

Carerra: why are these not made for ff cameras like Nikon etc, i would love a lens of this quality, I dont get it? the user base is huge?

Because manual focus is a PITA through a modern Autofocus SLR viewfinder?

You'd think that kind of claim would be accompanied with some sort of sample photography to back it up.

It used to be that you just had to worry about keeping up with the Joneses on your own street. Now you have to keep up with the Joneses (and Kardashians) on a global scale in order to feel successful.

This isn't an M series. Not even close.

From the thumbnail, I though the main image for the story was a very dramatically lit tampon.

EskeRahn: Hmm, on this

...and the changed buying behavior of professional photographers, who are now only willing to invest in new equipment if the investment guarantees additional income.”

When EVER has professional buyers not limited their buys to what they expect to be profitable???

It almost reads like, "Unfortunately, we can no longer con people into buying stuff they don't need"

MMACory: What if I were to have an inferior camera, but somehow take superior pictures with it?

The problem with marketing that, is that you'll convince people to buy a $400 used original 5D instead. (Which honestly could be fun to see what you could still do with it - probably a lot)

A stop more DR than full-frame!

In reply to:

M W B G: Dynamic range. The only reason its such a big deal these days is because sites like this brainwashed everybody into thinking they need so and so stops of it to make a decent photo. Too many unrealistic photos our there as it is. A little dynamic range is ok in my opinion but you don't need 39 stops of it. Shoot at the right time of day. Sheesh.

If we all "shot at the right time of day", then all lenses could be f8 and all cameras could have a max ISO of 400 and max shutter speeds of 1/400 could be adequate. And we wouldn't need a sensor larger than, say 2/3".

That's really weird given that this seems to be a new sensor and all the newer Canon sensors have had pretty good DR figures. 5D4, IDX II, 80D were all a huge step in the right direction. Now this one looks just like the older sensors based on 5D Mark II era tech.

In reply to:

Impulses: Ouch, DR is even lower than some M4/3 sensors according to his data (at lower ISO anyway)...

Base ISO DR is on par with 2-3 year old 1" sensors from Sony.

You will still be using your 7 dongles after the PC's get the update shortly.
