    i know what you mean, 14.2 is a bit much for me especially because most things don't even look that good 100%. unless it's like f4 of a 50mm lens.
    are you selling your d7000 in favor of a nex?

    Hopefully this somewhat fits in this thread, I'm pretty new to this sort of thing.
    Anyways, you know what really sickens me? This stuff.

    Why would she even use a DSLR? Sometimes it really makes me upset how people like her start using expensive cameras and use it only to take selfies. And people comment on these things and say "omg ur a great photographer" or what not.
    Rant over. :c

    Gotta edit this post, I don't think I'm done yet.
    First off I probably can't explain this right but oh well. Anyways, I hate how a large portion of DSLR purchases are made by these girls- which in a way, makes photography look much more casual and "easy to master", almost. It's just ridiculous. I've got a lot more to say but by now you probably understand-ish. Okay now my rant is over

    I started to think I would just get a 5N as a bro for my D7000, which quite a few people have done and some have even replaced the D7000 with a 5N. Lots of people called it stupid, and others couldn't blame them because they find the 5N so handy. I could sell my D7000 and the gear I have with it, despite not being heavily invested in Nikon gear would net me a grand or so to spend on a new system. Problem is not a stellar lineup of lenses, and I want to do lots of studio work this year so I kinda need a hotshoe = NEX7. I'll wait and see, because I can afford to get a 5N now. What do you think?

    well the d7000 is a great camera. if you are looking for more studio stuff the nex won't perform as well. the nex7 flash can't wirelessly trigger other flashes, and the hotshoe is the minolta proprietary type.

    O SHIT! Funny you should say that, watching DigitalRev earlier Kai reviewing a Sony camera mentioned the minolta proprietary hotshoe and how that's dumb! Surely a minolta type hotshoe IR trigger, but that's just awkward. The gear we use at uni just uses the standard ISO hot shoe.

    For what you use, do you reckon you'll stay with a NEX or save up for a more traditional DSLR body?

    they have an adapter for the normal hotshoe but it's like $30 and kind of bulky.
    i'm never going to own a dslr camera, i went nex and i never plan on going back, just going to eventually try and get the nex 7 or whatever comes down the road. hoping they eventually make one that has sensor shift image stabalization and a full frame sensor, that's pretty much the only thing i want out of them they don't have.

    "The video section will record pixel-for-pixel Full-HD 1080p resolution with selections for 30p and 24p frame rates in this iteration, and 720p at up to 60p for slow-motion work. The camera now includes support for the H.264 B frame compression scheme."

    Lots of videographers just sighed not getting 1080p with 50p/60p!

    Sold off my 24-70L for a 35L. I pretty much have my dream team of primes assembled now -35|50|85-

    Cueball style snapshot of my brother to start things off. Not quite used to such a wide perspective, but I'm really excited about it.



    Oh, and I went ahead and sent my port into CalArts, won't hear back until around March. Anxiety.

    Like you said, 2.8 just wasn't enough and it was physically too large. I never used it, and when I did it was always at 35 or 70. The 35L is like a beer can, and you can't deny 1.4.

    I hated selling it, as dumb as that sounds. I get emotionally attached to my stuff and have trouble letting go, especially lenses and cameras. I had a hard time selling my 500D, but that was just to my best mate. I'm pretty sure the guy that got my 24-70 is of the 'that' persuasion. I get sick just thinking about it, but at least it will get some use. There's a little ring on my desk where it used to stand, it's really depressing to look at.

    First world problems.

    Anyone have dreams relating to cameras? I had a weird as fuck dream last night where I was somehow able to afford a Leica M9 of all things! I kept thinking holy shit while staring at it out of the box but it didn't have a lens. Didn't matter to me seemingly! I picked it up and looked around, got to the back of the camera body and it didn't have a screen but, these cheap compartments that you would find in a toy for say batteries and the like. I dug a load of plastic pieces out of the compartments to find nothing inside the camera at all, it was an empty shell. Turned it around to look at the front and it wasn't a Leica at all! THEN I WOKE UP! WHAT DOES IT MEAN FP

    I need to stop drinking so much squash before bed!

    600mm f/4 is for showing off to the ladys.

    Remember what my flatmate says, you can't be a good wildlife photographer until you get a full frame camera and a 600mm f/4.

    I have a lot of photo's that I like but don't post because there are relatives of mine in the picture.
    Some of them are candid, others are pretty well thought-out where I seize the moment.

    Anyone else have this?

    the shallowest dof i've gotten is on my security camera lens on my nex. because it doesn't fully cover the sensor, the middle and the edges are on complete different levels of focus. it's weird

    Ergonomics and video yeah, Nikon played it safe in a way by improving but not so much innovating except for illuminating buttons? Catering to what pro shooters wanted. Canon still has more frame rate options and I was expecting to see 1080p60 as at first I'd reckon the sensor could handle it, but if its not there its probably for a good reason.

    The Verge wrote up a positive sounding hands on preview. Basically touch the D4 and you'll hate your current shooter and a lot else as well I'd say!

    EDIT:

    God damn how lucky! Testing the beast, the images seem impressive but fullsize and video samples please.

    Nikon Rumors posted:
    The camera’s large buffer memory allows shooting up to approx. 100 frames 2 in RAW and up to 200 frames 3 in JPEG (when using SONY XQD Memory Card H series QD-H32 with 32 GB capacity)
