    That probably bruised some egos at Nikon :)

    I'm still a Nikon guy! :D Though I sold my beloved Nikon D3S with the A7 II (now gripped) taking it's place. I'm using all adapted glass with the Techart Pro adapter and Commlite Nikon AF adapter and the A7 II has found it's niche as both a Nikon backup rig (to my D750) and as an AF rig for my manual lenses. While I'm tempted to pick up some Sony native glass, I much prefer using the MF glass for the different rendering and my Nikon AF glass when I need the corner to corner sharpness. I'm not sure if I'll be getting another DSLR when I upgrade next (won't be for awhile), but so far I find this setup to be an evolution of my shooting. BTW - I still keep an Olympus E-M5 II rig for travel and street.

    On some related camera news, I read somewhere Ricoh is planning to cut its camera division. Could be the end of Pentax! :-o

    Ricoh says not:

    With regard to the article about RICOH today | Global | Ricoh

    The source of the article you read, Nikkei Asian Review, is the same one that bungled the piece about Nikon's reorganization due to a poor translation of a Nikon earnings report a week or two earlier.

    Oh that's good then, can't imagine the loss of Pentax.
