Thanks for reminding me. The AF on the 5DMk2 is a complete embarrassment on an otherwise fine FF dSLR. They neutered what could have been a great all purpose camera into a great landscape camera.
For some reason, the 5D has not really captured my interest. I guess for now, don't really need 21.1 MP. I've got my eye on the 7D. Now, I just need some extra money...
No doubt that Nikon's Coolpix should be equally an embarrassment to the company that also created such wonders as the D3S, 85mm f/1.4G, 14-24mm f/2.8G, and 200-400mm f/4G.
Yeah. I never quite understood why Nikon never made a pro/semi-pro level sub-DSLR. All of Nikon's offerings look and feel like cheap consumer kitsch. I had a Nikon Coolpix 950 many years ago, and it was a pretty sweet little machine. It was quick, had a bright, fast lens, good flash, and the swanky swiveling body. I thought they were gonna further develop that and make it better, but they abandoned it.
FWIW, my pocket-able/underwater-housing camera is an S95.
I now have a Canon PowerShot G10, which replaced my G6 after the tilt/swivel screen broke. I'm also looking at the G12. Apart from being agonizingly slow, the G10 is pretty nice, but a sports/candid shooter, it ain't.
says Nikon will be the first to deploy the Thunderbolt port on their dSLRs...
If I recall, the Thunderbolt chip is quite large, so I guess Intel will have to squish it down to make it fit inside the new DSLR bodies?
