Nikon coolpix A

​The Nikon Coolpix A - Only just coming through the dealer network (April 2013) - A DX (APS-C) Sensor in a tiny metal nikon body, with lots of manual controls,  and a fixed 28mm lens.... could this be the Ricoh GRD witha big sensor that so many have been waiting for?

Sadly, No.  It's not.​

It's good. It's closer.  

But there are some ergonomic flaws that sadly make the camera hard to use and some optical issues that are unacceptable in a £1000+ Camera. Certainly in the post Sigma Merrill era.​

​Maybe a firmware update will sort the focus - but I'm not sure any software can sort the close focus and chromatic aberration in the Raw files. See the forthcoming review....
