    I’d prefer the black version but I question the need this satisfies other than nostalgia for former film photographers. The camera doesn’t seem to be that small at least compared to my Fuji XE-1, and if it can’t compete on size, it doesn’t have as many features as a D800 either.

    I love it! I would buy one if it was in my price range. I really like what it offers.

  • Not bothered about the styling bit. A camera is a tool for taking photographs. Whenever did a carpenter obsess about the ‘styling’ of his chisels? So long as it is efficient and easy to use, who gves a damn about what it looks like.

    But the compaptibility with the old Nikon lenses – now that really is something worth having. I have a ton of old Nikon lenses which are excellent but virtually unuseable with my current D3. That facility alone make this new body interesting.

    (P.S. I wonder what all this fancy styling, knobs and dials stuff, does for how waterproof/dustproof the body is?)

  • Mike Riemer says:

    I like the looks of it, and appreciate the nostalgia of it, but in the end it is a less capable tool than many of their other offerings. And some of those offerings cost less. If money was no object, sure I would buy it. But money is an object for me, so I would have to make a more rational, less emotional purchase. It is cool though.

    I am a semi professional adventure photographer from Alaska. I spend almost all my time shooting in an alpine environment where lightness equals actually carrying your camera and getting the shot. I love the D700. I sold it though when the D800 was rumoured to be released, and then bought the d700 again when I realised the d800 was a studio camera! I longed for the D4 sensor in a small fast body. Now here it is! If it was just another continuation of the d700/800 style I would buy it without hesitation, yet it is a beautiful camera that reminds me of my old F4, my favorite camera ever to use for wildlife and adventure. Those that say the manual knobs would slow you down, they obviously wouldnt do any better with any camera you put in their hands. This camera is an adventure photographers dream body. I’ll give you one guess to as to what Galen Rowell would think of it! Wish he was here to use it.

    As to it “not having many features”.. what the hell, a camera is aperture, shutter speed and a medium to record the image, wether that be velvia or a digital sensor. Learn to use those things and you will take great photos.

    If they’re going to come out with a retro camera, it should at least be film. There’s a (growing) market for that right now.

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
