I'll wait until it's been out six months and see what the lucky first ones have to say about it.
But the sucker's specs make it look like it can do everything including bake and slice bread. It can shoot video and has a microphone jack for the same. I make the jump to a daily newspaper, I'll have to be able to shoot video anyway. Might as well be able to do it with one camera instead of being hampered with two different types of camera, like the poor guys at the Daily Herald in Wausau.
And it is set to cost, body only, at under $3,000!
Might have to start saving my pennies now!
Do they have it in pink?
I like it, but can't justify it.
And here,s me wondering what I can by for £150 ($300).
OOps thanks DW to much Abbot Ale, or maybe age related.
I will always spend less than £201 on a camera myself, that way I know if it is nicked I can just about afford another one. Anymore and I'd have no pennies in my piggy bank left at all
That's about all that's in mine right now, too.
We've about decided that we are NOT going to Rockfest next year to concentrate our funds on some pressing things in our lives and to gear up to open a photo service.
As much as I would like to own a Mark II, if the price falls enough on the Mark I, I'll gladly take a new one of those instead.
