Interesting camera but $1100?
$300 less, gets you a Sigma Merrill which is on par with many FF cameras.

You don't have to wait 15 secs to shoot another image, you just have to wait 15 secs to see the image you shot

Nonsense. I can take shot after shot without any hiccups. Have you ever tried a Merrill?

True. Up to ISO 200 beats a FF camera, anything above that looks great in B&W. Writing speed? I don't care. You should see the pictures on a 30" screen. Simply unreal.

In addition to that it has i-TTL compatible hotshoe so I can use my SU-800 and SB-900s if I need to.

As far as DP2M yes its base ISO is pretty amazing.

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. His self aggrandizing hipster facade makes me want to pull all the fire alarms, run down the street, and yell at the top of my lungs that the apocalypse is coming.

I'm not convinced. There's a lot of processing going on with those Sigma files. Lots of clarity-type contrast enhancements which accentuate the perception of sharpness, especially with certain types of edges. But what they've found definitely has an appealing look to many wanting a slide film kind of look SOOC.

As for this new Nikon camera... where's the built-in EVF for $1100?

What's this now? I'm not keeping up with the compacts. Didn't Nikon just introduce the CX (small sensor) series in V1? And now they make a similar camera with DX sensor? Ugh, their strategy is confusing. I hope (for their sake) the additional viewfinder is optical (not electronic).

The Nikon 1 system has interchangeable lenses. This is a DX sensor Ricoh GR-style camera. I do wish it had an optional EVF with tilt, or a tilt-screen.

Come on! He has some visual style, and he is out there doing stuff. What do you bring to this table? Posting caustic comments from the anonymity of your non-name handle? Please post a 2-minute video of yourself out there making photos so that we can judge if you are more lame than him.

Not sure if it will offer much advantage over an RX100. At 28mm equivalent, RX100 has a 1.5 stop faster lens which should offset the sensor difference in most cases. Plus RX100 also has image stabilization, a zoom lens and nifty built-in "bounce" flash.

I don't think Nikon get what people want here. Or are perhaps scared of what people want.

Isn't that what we all look for, film quality in a convenient, light package?
