    That’s reassuring – I wonder if the D600 won the good design award in 2012?

    Good Design Award 2013 sounds like the Dorkwell Challenge: www dot ken rock well dot com/sony/a7.htm

    It’s been 5+ weeks now that it hasn’t been in stock also on Adorama. It’s kind of annoying already having a pre-order and not having the slightest idea when the new shipment will come it. I congratulate Sigma for producing such a high demand item. Just kind of wish they had opened that other facility to keep up with the worldwide demand of their products. Might purchase the Sigma USB dock just to see how it works and what I can do to fiddle with it.

    On another note, aren’t Rembrandt paintings now dubbed, “School of Rembrandt/Van Rijn” because of the inconsistencies that not all paintings were his, but of his students that he decided to sign himself?

    Why is Nikon NOT announcing a lens similar to the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8, news? There are a lot of 3rd party lenses that Nikon isn’t announcing equivalents for. I always get aggravated at people who complain about what you decide to post but this really IS pointless. I know it’s in vogue to bash Nikon but I always thought you were above the fray.

      Oops. Sorry. You meant the Sigma lens with the Nikon mount. Not, well… you know what I thought. I’ll just go hide in the closet for a while…

    • I really don’t know, it seems that Nikon has completely abandon the DX line.

      • patto01

        I edited my original post and the reply since I’m unable to delete them. I’m really embarrassed by the conclusion I jumped to. Sorry again.
        As for Nikon abandoning the DX line, even when I shot DX, I didn’t care. Except for wide angle, which is covered well enough by Nikon and 3rd party manufacturers, you can always use FX lenses.

        The only thing I can think of is the serious DX lenses are all going to be mirrorless DX lenses. I.e the Nikon 2 line.

        And on one of these threads, Kevin ___ speculated mirrorless DX mount will be the same as CX mount. Something I never thought of but would be GREAT! I.e. you could buy your Nikon 2 lenses and they would also work natively with all the AF points etc. on the Nikon 1 line!
