Well done dpreview crew. My only quibble was the lack of nudity.
The Canon 50L f/1.2 is similar to the 58/1.4 in terms of being designed for bokeh rendering. I wonder how the two compare in sharpness.
Well I certainly wish them success. I actually have a soft spot for Casio - I've been to one of their design centers in Japan while working on software for a product they were using.
I can appreciate Casio's past innovations and successes but unfortunately that doesn't mean much in assuring future success, esp in today's fast-paced industry. Here's a list of other companies...
In other news, Casio will soon announce their entry into the home video market with the introduction of a HiFi VHS machine.
This should breathe more life into these discontinued camera models.
The best way to do retro right is to just buy the old camera you're longing to re-experience. Much cheaper and more authentic.
The DF is a bargain...if you went into a coma right after the D3x was announced and just woke up tonight.
Contrast the entrepreneurial spirit Mr. Maki exemplifies vs what Nikon is about to demonstrate with their forthcoming release of the safe and overpriced DF camera. Hats off to Sony.
I wonder what's in his hands again? Oil splatter? :)
Sorry but in 6x7 format terms the lens is only a 48-240mm f/8 so naturally it's garbage.
He borrowed from me :)
Nikon is trying to invoke the spirit of the inflation era of the 1970's.
The Canikon alternative is overpriced bodies *and* lenses vs just overpriced lenses.
I don't suppose the buyer will be taking this thing to Disney World to snap photos of his family at the base of Splash Mountain.
Nikon introduces the Ford Pinto 2.0, now with fewer oil explosions.
I wonder how/whether they're able to control the precision of vibration so that it's limited to the frequencies near nyquist, like how a well-designed traditional AA filter is expected to work.
Mace for when someone tries to steal your expensive camera.
