FlyinDoc: In-built memory . What a simple idea that the other manufacturers should have embraced ages ago. With a fast SSD, buffer clearing problems go away. No more losing cards/failed cards, 1 card slot, 2 card slots, SD, XQD all gone away. Poof!

I hope the other manufacturers implement this into mainstream cameras soon.

And what happens when the in-built memory fails? You are out a very expensive camera. With external removable memory, all you need is a new memory card.

Remember, pledging for kickstarter campaigns will not guarantee you anything.

"1MP X-Trans CMOS 4 Sensor with primary color filter"

1MP?

On article The Nikon Z system: What we think, where it should go (956 comments in total)

I am not liking the memory card door. It also acts as the thumb rest. I have a feeling that I would break the door, holding the camera too tight. When holding the camera, the natural thing is to push on the thumb rest, the same way the door opens. It puts a lot of stress on the locking pins. But I am sure Nikon has thought about it and made the door robust.

evogt500: Is anyone lese a bit disappointed that the Noct F0.95 lens is manual focus only. With the F-mount, Nikon had a reason, the throat diameter was too small to add the large rear element+electronic contacts. I understand that using auto focus to get sharp images at F0.95 is difficult for a camera, but isn't this 2018?

Thanks for replying, but I think people who are really interested in the lens, wont care for the price increase because its already high.

Its interesting they weren't afraid to label it "Made in China" right on the front. Before, it was always hidden on the bottom or on the mount.

Any person willing to back a kickstarter, should consider it a donation.

panther fan: They need to stop with that tiny 0.62X viewfinder they put in everything.

Sony puts 0.7X in every model of their A6000 series. Panasonic puts 0.7X in their cheap G series and GX series cameras.
And mid range models like the G85 or E-M5 II have 0.74X

Fujis next X-t20 like camera needs to have a bigger EVF. Nobody builds EVFs this small anymore:
https://www.neocamera.com/article/evf_sizes?sort=magnification

I believe the actual size of the display is the same. Its the magnification that's different. Fujifilm probably used less magnification because of the smaller overall body size and its cheaper. Keep in mind Fujifilm has one of the best and biggest magnification EVF in the XT-1/XT-2 at 0.77x. which is almost as the big as the Sony A7RIII.

AbrasiveReducer: I thought SLR shutters, with those mirrors going up and down didn't last long and that's why we need mirrorless cameras to deal with this epidemic of shutter failures.

all ILC mirrorless cameras have shutters too. And probably have to work twice as hard as DLSRs since they need to be open for liveview.

I'm not a Leica fan and will never buy one, but the lens has great contrast wide open. Very nice images.

Canon also uses green for their DO optics lenses.
