maxnimo: Why aren't they using SD cards? SD format seems to have the fastest and largest capacity memory cards at best prices, including rugged pro versions. What's the point of still using other formats like CF?

Much prefer the larger, more robust, more reliable and easier to handle Cf cards.

FantasticMrFox: This camera would be a nightmare to handle for anyone whose right eye doesn't work properly (like me). Put your left eye to the viewfinder and you won't be able to reach any of the controls on the right side of the body. You'd hardly be able to hold it comfortably and press the shutter.

How can a company which continue to pump out some of the best lenses on the planet take one of the best sensors there is and put it into an abomination like this?! It almost seems like they are desperately trying not to sell cameras.

Can they not get it right?!

Dougbm_2: Ok the 'Shades of Grey' reference is hard to resist no doubt… but in the interest of good taste you really should.

Hugo808. No.

Dougbm_2: How is this ultra wide?

Not really. Just wide. Compare with 10-20mm lens = 15mm wide or sigma 8-16mm = 12mm wide

marike6: Tokina builds what could likely be another of their legendary, pin sharp UWA zooms but with a faster max aperture and people complain. Pointless they say. Another reason I stopped caring about this site long ago.

Well it's not UWA just wide (FF equiv = 21-30mm)

Some of the nicest images in a DPR review yet.
Particularly the cloud over the mountain. Very nice tones and colours.

In reply to:

aftab: I see lots of never-going to buy-jealous kind are talking about how ugly this camera looks. I will agree that this camera is not the best looking Leica. But the prize for ugly looking cameras should go to Sony. Forget DSLR, Sony can at least look at Pentax, Panasonic, Olympus, Samsung and Fuji to to learn how to make a decent looking camera.

Hey you are right this camera does look ugly!

Johannes Zander: I have a D800, two V1 and a V2. Half a year ago I bought a E-M1 and I am very happy with it. Also I must say that E-M1 focusing and tracking is not as good as with the V2. But the choices of lenses for the m43 is much bigger than for Nikon 1 cameras.
The major andvantage is the firmware upgrading for the E-m1. It becomes a much better and more versatile camera with each firmware upgrade. And the Nikon 1 cameras, not. Nikon could make them much better with firmware upgrades.

It's the Fuji experience! : )

Dumb idea!

As the images show it still has the limitations of a small sensor no matter how good it is otherwise ie: large depth of field, Hi ISO noise.
