The only accessory needed is a USB cord which comes with the camera. It would be a huge plus to not have to use such a primitive device. ;)
I personally would be more than happy to pay an extra fifty bucks for an integrated WIFI.

Integrated WiFi/Bluetooth, as well as an Android app for remotely controlling the camera.

Bye-bye to remote trigger releases, etc.

Exactly .... So where is it in these new cameras? This not rocket science, nor does it cost much to implement.

I have the wired setup with dslr controller, and it's a joy to use. Make it totally wireless, and it's the cats meow. These companies are not on the ball.

Again, it's not about what it costs for them to implement it. Then they wouldn't be able to sell you things like wireless transmitters, etc. They don't want to cannibalize a revenue stream by implementing a feature that isn't going to be a dealbreaker for most people.

Nice, and yes, they are amazing. Got a D700 myself so I can relate.

What caused the blue/green streaks from the lights?

Looks like a bad front element cleaning job left some really tiny scratches, or something similar going on with the lens. Those are halos around the lights.

From what I understand the tokina has trouble with flaring, I guess that's a good example of it.

I would if I was you. I'm a fan of Tokina UWA lenses, but that is too much to put with imo. Every time you view your images with that lens and under those conditions it could turn something you might have really enjoyed into something that might make you cringe if you are like me.

after some research, alot fo research, this lens has SOOOOO MUCh flare... so i'm returning it and picking up the Nikon 16-35mm f/4, i lose a couple of stops, but the Nikon is rated as one of the sharpest lenses out there.

i really enjoyed the Tokina for the whole 2 days that i've owned it... :-)
