My own hicoR arrived yesterday. Then they announced the new FF less than 12 hours later.


YOU'RE ALL VERY WELCOME.

They actually waited for you to buy it before announcing FF. Had you bought a K3 a year ago, we would have the FF by now.

I wonder how many colors that new FF will come in and how many people will complain if it is in different colors other than black or silver. Of course I don't expect any other colors than just the basics, but who knows with the evil hociR!

FF will come in
As long as it is not yellow! - very hard to see.
The critical moment would be passed before one found his/her camera!

I can't wait for the inevitable "why I won't buy a FF thread"!

Exactly. Or rather, what are the FFisters going to complain about now?

Other than "it's too expensive", of course.

And "it's not 645 MP".

"Too small."

"Too big!"

...

Still have to wait.
Not enough colours
Button layout not as good as the K(fill in your own...)
It's dearer/nearly as dear as Canon (fill in your own) and Nikon (fill in your own)
Too little too late.
etc etc etc

All true. But we forgot the most obvious: "It's not mirror-less!"

I thought it was kind of funny that so many people were praising it for having crop mode.

AsI said one of the announcement threads; nobody has any specs on it, but I'm sure Ogl will be along soon to tell us what's wrong with it. (No doubt the Sonytrolls will chime in too.)

Why? It's a huge advantage compared to systems that don't have it. You can essentially upgrade from an APS-C body to FF without having to replace all your APS-C lenses. You can acquire FF replacements over time.



This is invaluable for us hobbyists, who can't justify buying a whole new system at once.

Oh, the irony!

I've yet to see pp software that doesn't have a crop tool.
