'We're not convinced many users will spend so much money to gain a little reach over their existing kit lens, leading us to suspect there may be a body on its way that will match its enthusiast-friendly ambitions.' Talk about damned with faint praise!! There are also some underwhelmed comments on their forum. 'enthusiast-friendly ambitions.' The kiss of death!!
By the way I'm enthusiastic about photography, and its my hobby as well as my job. Most professionals I know would say the same. We do differ in one way however, we buy and use gear because it works for us and not because it makes us look good. And I've said it before and I'll say it again, the difference between some (not all) 'amateurs' and 'professionals' is that the professional is most interested in the images they take and some (not all) amateurs are more interested in how they create their images and what they used to do that. And it strikes me the Nikon 18-140mm doesn't look that sexy (what Nikon lens does?) but I'll bet it takes a great picture.
