I don't own one, but I will criticise it like I do!

*goes back to sweating over brick wall photos, and complaining I need to MFA my lenses to +1000 just to get them right*

Don Diafragma: Also named the 'One'D'Kamosaurus X II'.

Strong and powerful, fat and heavy and very jurassic due to its mirror.

And not exactly for 99% of photographers. Mirrorless isn't developed enough for the fields of work this will be used for.

vesa1tahti: No pop up flash. No thanks, I'll keep my D7200.

Have you used the pop up flash often? Be honest.

On my last camera, I think I used it... twice in the 4 years I owned it.

Pop up flash is for noobs.

shleed: People bickering about brands: It really doesn't matter, especially that eventually they will be replaced by mirrorless once battery life and AF have improved.

Same here. People who evangelise mirrorless cameras at this point are being a bit deluded. DSLRs still have a few years left since they still have advantages.

Zeisschen: I really thought Nikon would come up with some innovation this year and then? Another iteration of the same SLR concept from 1861... *yawn*

SLRs were not even out in 1861. Add nearly 100 years.

J A C S: The lens that does nothing.

Front element is actually quite tough. I know this from trying to smash my broken 18-55mm years ago - even a hammer could barely scratch it without some significant force, and it took a lot of effort just to crack it!

The only benefit of filters in terms of protection is ensuring weather sealing, if it provides it.

Keep churning that post purchase rationalisation.

Or his jarring music on his website. Music on a photography portfolio site is always considered a massive turn off, and is considered one of the main "photography sins" like uploading every single frame from a burst, bad HDR etc.

Photokhan/Emfor, it's quite a pretentious notion to claim a lens has "soul". Next you'll be claiming it is an organic extension of your chaotic creative impulses, right?

Mirrorless. That is all.

ybizzle: These add on cameras never made sense to me. If I'm going to carry another device with my phone, why not just take a high quality compact in my pocket? Oh wait I do, my Coolpix A! And it costs less with better IQ and larger sensor! I guess if fiddling around with gadgets like these is your thing, then be my guest!

That's one hell of a case of PPR.

For the price of it, you could have a much better camera.

In reply to:

shleed: Kudos to Sony actually fixing it. Sony fanboys can actually brag about DR now.

Doesn't change the fact that mirrorless is still in its infancy. When it is better developed, I'll probably go with Fujifilm.

I'm not going to avoid a Fuji camera because some knob on the internet told me so.

Kawika Nui: "decline in ILC sales volume"
As opposed to:
"Olympus mFT sales markedly up with E-M1."
So it's not the market segment, it's the products they put into it.
If Canon would commit to making good mirrorless cameras at a realistic price, with good burst and video capabilities (or even one of these good and the other just OK), they could be a bigger player in the ILC segment.

Aren't their SLT designs kinda inbetween?

Let the photos do the talking. Oh wait, you don't seem to have any.
