At this casual level, no, it's not going to really matter. The cheap Nikon zooms that are sold to casual shooters all have the piezoelectric motor (trademarked as Silent Wave Motor by Nikon and sold...

Why does it have to be "full-frame"? Honestly this is just amazing techlust based on paper specs. Unless routine enlargements to 16x24 or larger is needed, the premium on full-frame isn't worth it....

Nah, it's mostly for the viewfinder. High ISO is a bonus, but I'm loathe to give up the FOV crop.

It does, just that the overpacked sensors tend to kill the detail first. Take a sample shot of a folded optics lens and compare it to something like a GR Digital. You'll notice differing levels of...

The i780 has replaced the i600 for quite a few months now, and it is one of the cheapest WM Pro phones out here (slightly less than US$500 unlocked).

I'm a little dismayed at the move to WM Pro (I...
