Yeah, Nikon still wants you to buy their SLR cameras.

Interesting. I wonder how much this thing is going to weigh, how big is it going to be, and what will the maximum aperture be at the 2000mm equivalent focal length.

Whoa...it weighs more than some full frame DSLRs.

Yes, but those SLR weights probably don't include a lens. Since it has a 1/2.3" sensor, there is no optical aps-c SLR equivalent lens to compare. If there was, that lens would be pretty massive.

For me, I would be happy with a D7100 and a Tamron 16-300mm lens.

I was looking at it as a replacement for my Canon 20D, now that I have finally sold my 100mm-400mm lens.

I'm waiting to see what the reviews will say and for discounting to kick in.

It seems that there are a number of super zoom cameras from Panasonic and, of course, Canon that might make it easier for me to keep a camera with me.

Based on the birding pictures that I've seen here using the Canon all-in-one zooms, I think that one of these cameras might be my answer.

Does the weight include the tripod you'll need to have any hope to steady a 2000mm telephoto?

I believe it comes with a goat or alpaca that you can prop the camera on for extra steadiness. Allegedly they built in 5 stops of optical stabilizing power into this.

I wonder how the image quality will compare with the Canon SX50 (now that the SX60 has apparently failed to measure up to its predecessor—from the reviews I've seen). I've been considering a superzoom for some time, and maybe this will be the one. . .

Holy cow. That's all that camera is...a lens. The body is next to nothing (looking at the pics on dpreview).

I am waiting for the 400X version, 10 mm to 4000 mm

at this pace, it should be available in about 3-4 years.

I'm gonna pre-order one w/ the alpaca option... I hear they're cheaper to feed than goats, plus they make for better sweaters, but the cheese isn't as good.

I can see how this might work at high shutter speeds, but what about at very low shutter speeds when the light is awful? Could you take a shot handheld for a half a second?

I wonder how feasible is it to actually capture sharp images at such a long focal length without some type of sturdy support. Certainly an outdoor only camera.

The other end of the zoom is a fast (f2.8) wide-angle 24mm, which will be fine for indoors.

At long zoom a tripod or monopod would definitely help, but Image Stabilization and a fast shutter speed can compensate for a certain amount of jiggle. Look how well Hal does with his SX50.

I'm skeptical that a 2000mm equivalent in a $600 camera will look like anything but total doodoo. I suppose it could happen but I'd be very surprised.
