My eyes glisten – brain snaps into alert mode – eyes scan the specification and checks that it really does say that it has a ‘DX’ sensor. Thinks, with such a large sensor and Nikon technology, it will undoubtably make great images.
I check the rest of the specifications and see that it has a 28mm fixed f2.8 lens. That’s a bit limiting, but I can work within that limitation.
It’s small – the length is just a bit wider than the width of my hand. And it weighs 300g (11ounces)
I wonder how much it costs?
$1100 in the US £1,000 in the UK
No way, and ouch again.
