Nikon's LCDs. Towards the end for mirror mechanisms

    I see a day when electronic displays have replaced optical displays
    relying on mirror/reflex mechanisms. Shutter speed constraints are a
    thing of the past, shutter noise is gone, ultrafast f1.0 lenses are
    common and cameras are smaller, at least in depth. A kind of
    futuristic Leica M8 but with the ability and the system to support
    lenses of any f.l..

    The day is coming, but it is still far off.

    RichA needs to work out what the actual resolution of the
    D3/300 display is, then work out how many iterations of
    Moores Law are needed, then consider what the resolution of
    cameras will be by the time the monitors and associated
    electronics have caught up to today's sensors, and recalculate.
    Yes - I agree - it's a long way off.
    In the meantime, live view LCD is a terrific thing. I will
    buy a D300 (so long as it does not have big teething
    problems!) for the live view feature for use in macro
    shooting. For macro, the D3 offers no tangible advantage,
    and some disadvantages.

    Live view is great, but it does not compare to the OVF for many, if not
    most, tasks.

  5. I see a day when electronic displays have replaced optical
    That's what I've been looking for all along (I've described it as a
    block of metal with a lens mount on the front, an LCD on the back, a
    card slot in the side, a battery slot in the bottom, and a shutter
    release on the top). We can hope.

    Look at the trend in lens introductions, though; these days an f/2.8
    is unusually fast, real fast lenses seem to be a thing of the past.
