Nokia declared war on DSLRs with its Lumia smartphones several years ago, stating that smartphones would replace DSLRs. A couple of years ago, Nokia's ad campaign showed off some amazing footage that looked like we might all eat our words when the Lumia 920 was launched. Then, we discovered…

Completely agreed!

If I wanted 41 megapixels, I'd want it in nothing smaller than a full-frame 35mm sensor.

I have a Fuji X10 for convenience, and cell phone for even more convenience. But neither compare to the quality of my "grown-up camera".

Once Canon , Nikon, and others start implementing better WiFi options for instant sharing, etc. we'll see the pendulum swing back the other way.

Shyt! Time to dump the old D800 and get a Lumia.

Yeah, right :-)

As main camera? No way! As sidekick, maybe.

Nokia is playing on the stupidity of the public.

Mathematically, the size of that sensor, which is larger than most cell phone sensors, would not benefit by any more than about 10 mp. 41 is not noticeable.

Second, Nokia, now a Microsoft company has to deal with the fact the camera has the windows 8 interface, which even Microsoft is panicking to replace more than a year earlier than planned. Windows 8.x is a disaster.

As someone else said, if I was going to shell out the thousands of dollars to go on an expensive vacation, I would be a fool to use a cel phone camera to record my trip.

I carry a Fuji X-M1 with a couple of lenses in my Man Bag. It is with me about 75% of the time I am out of the house. I shoot what matters and gets paid for with a D800 and a bag full of primes. Yep, my iPhone records the rest. Mostly, stuff that needs to be emailed right away, or when I can pull out the Fuji.

Nokia have, in my opinion taken a step back in credibility.

Nokia....Say something that they've done well.
I'm not surprised, this clarifies just what many Nokia users said long time.
It is a company that can not think about what people want or how things should work.
Buy a Nokia and you get a big problem, so it would stand.
I have for many years been forced to use their junk phones on the job, and how any idiot can buy these is a mystery .... or probably bribed by sellers.
All their phones lack the logical thinking, and fortunately, people have now begun to understand what Nokia is not yet understand.
As we say at work.
Are you supposed to complicate something so, do a "Nokia"
We were improving, but it became a "Nokia", just to start over.

What's up all, here every one is sharing these kinds of familiarity, thus it's
fastidious to read this web site, and I used to go to see this webpage daily.
