| p.7 #17 · Nikon D610 officially announced |
Nice to hear an improved camera is out, but I do feel bad for people with unresolved D600 issues.
As for slagging off Nikon in general, they do deserve it, but what they did pales in comparison to what others such as Hasselblad and Leica (M8 anyone?) have done in the past, especially Hasselblad (locking their own customers from new lenses with firmware to force $3K body upgrades, selling a $6K zoom which falls apart, calling cameras full frame when they are clearly not, etc) . Canon have had their fair share of issues too. My Leaf digital back dealer tried to defend the fact that there were so many issues with this $30K back saying that they are still ironing out the bugs and what can you expect with this new design. New? They keep telling us they've been making these backs for 20 years. And haven't they heard of consumer protection laws, lemon laws, merchantable quality, etc?
And so it goes. Dirt on a sensor for such a cheap camera is not the worst problem out there.
And complaining about the modest upgrade? You should see the pathetic incremental model line up from Mamiya.
