    For the bird photographer who doesn't want to mortgage the house or sell the children here's a camera that will capture birds at a distance and a nat's whiskers close up. Now you can get that close up of the king of the jungle without feeling his warm breath on your lens. An impressive 24-3000mm (equivalent) focal range, 16mp, ISO 100-6400, f/2.8-8 lens, an electronic viewfinder, a 3.2" vari-angle LCD screen, optical vibration stabilization, it will do 4k video, and it has wi-fi.

    The lens extends so much it will make most men blush and women giggle.

    That is some reach. I wonder what the image quality is like at 3000 mm?

    I saw that pop up this morning, and it sounds great. With a suggested retail of $1,000 US it will get some quick buyers.

    Some of these cameras with large zooms, still produce some great images, my wife has a Lumix TZ40 compact and even on full zoom it takes nice sharp images.

    That's a fair interesting camera, the 4K is interesting, also the RAW as well as cabled control it could be a good way to dip the toes in the water for stellar-photography.

    Maybe I'm reading some early reviews wrong but I'm seeing a massive delay from when you press the shutter release to when the photo is captured - 3.5 seconds according to one review. Anyone actually had their paws on an early camera and care to correct or enlighten me?

    G'day Jim

    I've just sqwizzed the initial reviews on DP Review.com and cannot see any refs to "3.5 seconds" tho they may be tucked away somewhere. It could be a ref to "switching on and then zooming out the entire 3000mm of lens" sort of thing ... in which case one might ask 'how long would a dSLR user take to lift their 3000mm lens onto a tripod and set up. [but I am guessing here]

    Overall I would expect that the camera / lens package would be 'quite okay for that sort of thing' otherwise Nikon would not put it to market. And [as a died-in-the-wool superzoom user] it certainly won't take long for those who have a need for very-very long lenses to start using one of these cameras

    Hope this helps
