    But you will loose your existing lenses even with Nikon fullframe: crop mode just doesn't cut it.

    I have mix match of lenses :)
    Tammy 17-50 2.8 DX
    Nikon 35mm 1.8 - dx
    Nikon 50mm 1.8D -FX
    Nikon 55-200 -DX
    Nikon 300mm f4-FX
    Nikon 55mm 2.8 FX
    Tammy 90mm 2.8- works well on FX

    So basically If i go for FX I will need to buy a short zoom lens first :)

    My suggestions: Go for Nikon body. Trust me, you wouldn't like the performance of Nikon lenses on Sony with adapter. Wait for a while and you can probably go for something like D610/D750. I'm pretty sure that Nikon will drop the prices after their mirrorless release.

    Attended a wedding and for the first time witnessing photographers using mirrorless. It's a mix of Canon DSLRs and Sony MILC and they were using metabones adapters. That Canon lens and metabones adapter made A7S look even smaller.

    Wanted to look through EVF, since they were working I just took a small peek and gave them back.

    Same here attended a wedding over the weekend. Most of the equipment for stills and videos is now sony mirrorless cameras. Saw rode microphones, tons of remote flashlights and even some awesome emount sigma lenses (expensive ). Also used the nikon 80mm 1.4 for the first time, what a huge lens.

    Plus some very very cool drones from DJI and the DJI osmo for video stabilization. Very geeky weddings these days

    Yaah people spending up of 25L on wedding can certainly afford 1L for photographer.

    At my wedding we rejected the guy who was a reknown photographer but wanted 50k for video, drone, and had special album and special video and what not..too much attitude.
    we hired a simple 3 guy team who took 25k and had made a descent album. We liked it :)

    Odd news: Canon is rumoured to announce the 4000D which has an 18 MP sensor with a Digic4+ processor (which is really old, the new Digic 8 is expected to make its appearance on Monday). This appears to be a new low budget offering from Canon. There are a lot of jokes going around about how this is not what users meant when they asked Canon for a 4K DSLR :)
    The new M50 mirrorless which will launch on Monday is expected to have 4K though, along with an autofocus that targets pupils (of the eyes, I mean - not students). Also expected is the promisingly named speedlight 470EX AI Autobounce.

    I'm pretty sure it was expensive. They had tons of cool equipment. Even the strobes, flashes, stabilizers and all were geek worthy.

    Wow! I find even 50k for that is a nice pricing and 25k, that's excellent pricing. I haven't heard 25k pricing in the recent past for a wedding shoot. I guess in north there are more things to cover (more events spread across 2-3 days) in a wedding, right?
    :rofl: :rofl: Probably someone to make a joke about Canon coined that name 4000D. Still it's really funny :D :D

    Came across the rumoured spec/photo leak.
    - Plastic mount
    - I don't see any dioptre adjustment next to VF
    - Though spec says it has WIFI, I don't see its logo anywhere in the camera body

    What they're trying to do with new entry level cam? - My guess is they can price 1300D successor higher like they did with 100D/760D.

    There are several possibilities here.
    * These are extremely affordable DSLRs for emerging markets which aren't yet saturated with premium smartphones, where people would hesitate to invest that much in a phone but wouldn't mind investing in a DSLR
    * Preparing for a rapidly overtaking mirrorless future by amortising investments in the older tech over a large number of these entry level bodies (there are 3 such bodies expected)
    * Other applications where this older tech still has plenty of use, but still requires to be supported by DSLR sales
    * Anticipating a return to the DSLR as a status symbol now that smartphone sales are tapering off
    * Demand for a cheap, basic backup body from pros who offer low(er) margin services
    * A combination of the above

    It will still be priced around 1300D's price. I don't expect price to be any lower as the price trends is going north of quite sometime now. Just that now the successor or 1300D will be priced higher.
    Really??? Pros will be looking at this as a backup body? I don't think so.

    That's the case from the first iteration of RX100. May be they are not making/selling many, so cost per unit is high or their profit margin is higher or they are making up for the losing sales in other compact cameras. And there is no significant price cut like before. For the last few years prices of camera is going higher.
    Canon has announced two entry level DSLR, now 1300D successor will sell for 30k+ despite pretty much every thing is same except sensor.
    They have removed many things in 4000D to keep the cost low, not even have a dedicated on/off knob/switch.

    I read that for fixed lens cameras most of the cost goes to the lens (the RX100 had a wide sigma lens) since it has to serve for all conditions. Plus I'm sure that they are making good margins on these cams.
