    is nikon all done ?

    • For Photokina announcements – yes, otherwise – no 🙂

        The new Sony A99 II and the Olympus E-M1 Mk2 just raised the bar much higher for any Nikon mirrorless.

        Looking at the specs of the E-M1 Mk 2, I wonder what many Nikon aficionados will do if this was instead for a new Nikon F-mount FX? I have not seen any rear photo of the E-M1 Mk2 to see whether it has an AF joystick but if it does not, this is the only critique I can make of it.

        Even with many months to an announcement still, an FX version of the E-M1 Mk 2 may simply be a bridge too far for Nikon. But I would be happy to be proven wrong again if that happens.

          if nikon tries to do another tiny sensor mirrroless they will have a hard time.
          if they don´t go aps-c they can stop trying right now….

    and the new Sony Alpha looks very impressive.

    • Tolot

      and will you buy it… no… same as 96% who say it looks impressive.

  • Are people still buying MFT? I thought Kai said it was dead.

    • Zos Xavius

      So kai is now the authority on what is dead or not? Good to know.

      • Tolot

        the only authority is ken.. not kai.

    by the way…. i was at photokina today and kudos to the canon booth people… when i was there they got hammered with questions why the 5D MK4 look so intentional crippled when it comes to video.

    i don´t want to work at that booth to be honest….

    • Tolot

      if canon has any love for it´s customers they should at least add canon log and give us the choice for a codec that doesn´t eat up memory like mad.
      im pretty sure they could do that with a firmware update.
      don´t know if canon could do much for clean HDMI out via a firmware update.

      but looking at other offerings videographer will run away from canon…. the only company worse these days when it comes to video seems to be nikon.

      even fuji user will get good 4k now….

      not that the 4k quality is bad.. but the file size is a joke for longer recordings.
      and log profiles should be standard today.

      personally i don´t care about 4k.. but canon doesn´t look good here compared to other brands at photokina!
