I have to say I really like the looks, the buttons are much more in line with the bigger bodies. I'll post more when more comes in!

Edit: My God these are massive, sorry. I'll resize them later unless a mod wants to do it for me! :D I have no time right now.

If this thing really comes out at $650 like Rockwell predicts it could be bad news for the Rebel T1i. Bad news.

Funny, Nikon uses a Phase One P25 back and PS 7 for their promo shots...

I will say I like the idea of screen as I used my S3's often but still not that often. Never the less, will provide some competition being one of the two big contenders. I think people forget about the other cameras that can do this though...

dslr's are looking more like digicams everyday.
Soon, it'll just have one 20X mega giga zoom lens that you can't even replace.
Hope it takes nice movies...

Hmm.. Looks like Canon once again gets smoked. Nikon the first to introduce the swivel screen. Not a big feature, but something new in the SLR arena and Canon misses the boat.

I'm sure that canon engineers are feverishly working up a swivel screen of their own and the upcomming 60D will have it.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

It's not new...just new to Nikon and Canon.

Sure, but they're the two biggest brands so it's new to most buyers. It will attract yet more first-time SLR users to the big boys.

Not really...the Olympus has been in stores for a LONG time and no doubt people have seen it.

Mmm I'm noticing nice little touches. Its scroll wheel is now tilted slightly downward just like the D3's, to be more natural for the thumb. None of the other bodies have had that except the D3, so it's nice to see it spreading.

The contour of the grip (at the top near the shutter button) is styled after the D300 and D700, which is quite lovely--more comfortable than the pointier grip of the D40.

Edit: aravena, I'm not really going to argue with you about this. Nobody is claiming that it's a brand new feature but this will most definitely cause Canon to include it on their next small body. In other words, it will become common, because of Nikon.

*sigh* It is common. There is no argument. You have nothing therefore you realize such and bow out of...nothing. It's been around, it's nothing new. Look what this site has become reducing everything to Canon and Nikon. If Fuji had video no one would mention it and then with a Canon or Nikon having it, someone would stroll along and say, "Now they'll all have it!" despite the fact that maybe two companies already do.

No it won't cause Canon to do anything. Your sig does you justice though in standing up for Nikon but sorry, it seems Olympus and Sony caused Nikon to do something. It's ok, suck it up. When Canon does it, alright, w/e but once again, nothing new.

I can see it now when Canon or Nikon adds in body IS. "Man oh man! Now every camera will need this to match up with Canon/Nikon! :D"

I think you two have new reached an understanding as to whether it is a new feature or not, right? Cool. Let's move on.

I notice the absence of a Print button, too.

I don't think I've ever used it. I certainly wouldn't miss it either.
