THKPIC: I'm impressed. This is the Sony A900II. Pentax, seriously- how the heck are you going to make any money off of this. You're practically giving it away. Just.....amazing.

The truth is they are not giving it away, the truth is Canon and Nikon and Sony have been stealing from our pocket BIG TIME !!!

Carlos Loff: What the hell happened to the D200/D300 outer frontal/lateral AF switch with AF-C / AF-S options ??? Now it is just AM/AF ??? MY GOOD - CRIME CRIME CRIMEEEEEE

I know, I know, now we press it and dial on the small screen, but I loved the way the manual option switch worked because I could change it with just one finger in the dark

Oki doki, I t is a manual way of switch AF modes, was very used to it on D200 night shots where I deed not even need to see that switch, it was already a natural reflex, focus, switch of and shoot, bus someone reminded me here the AF button now replaces it - So YES, the only thing missing in this camera is to be for sale in Europe - HURRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

Where in this world did you read I focus manually ? Did you read the part where I say AF-C or AF-S ? Those are Autofocus modes, not manual modes my friend - Would you please read my post and than notice what Im talking about ?

Sammy Yousef: Too little too late, and leaving out the built in flash is a huge mistake. The pros won't care as much but enthusiasts who don't exclusively shoot sports won't be as tempted to upgrade. I know it's a deal breaker for me. I love the popup flash for casual shots and i like being able to use it as a commander without lugging extra gear.

Do hope the auto AF fine tune trickles down to non pro bodies.

Sammy, keep the D90 for light use situations (it was the last time Nikon lost their heads in relation to generosity in specs-cost, the D90), sell all the rest and buy the D500 - You seam to have more than 2 cameras for social and sports, you have 4 cameras, lol

When shooting an event I can have 2 different situations, subjects moving fast with preference to AF-C or more static situations when I want to play with short DOF and not having the focused motif on the centre of the final image - Events offer these situations on and off and the manual switch makes it all faster without the need to take the eyes off the optical viewer

Leica is definitely as excellent brand but why do these cameras that are 3 times better than others cost 4 or 5 times more than others ?

When you get down to it and touch it and check everything is not 4 or 5 times better than others, it also brakes, it also tear and wear

bmoag: I'm sure there is a market for this camera but it escapes me and that may be why the long interval since the 300s. Are there many (any?) working pros that rely on APS sensor cameras? This camera will not yield optimal image or video quality compared to other solutions offered by Nikon, and others, at comparable price points apart from 4k in an APS body. I guess there is a well heeled presumably amateur niche for what seems to me a jack of no trades with a few tech gee whiz factors--someone somewhere must consider bluetooth transfer a must-have.
Ergo I would not consider buying one but if someone were to gift me a D500 . . .

If I want to make videos I can always buy a Video-Camrea

daddyo: I'm done with DSLR's myself, but this looks like a really nice camera. I can easily see this being very popular for wedding/event photography. It's not as big as a cinder block and has a very nice feature set.

I shoot professionally and For wedding I would definitely prefer the D750, thank god I will not go for wedds but for Hawks and Flamingos instead

fabozzi: What a revolution :-)

Still looks like a 10 y old d200. Still the same old-fashioned mirror. Still the same bulk, size and weight. And who the hell needs a 200p buffer ? Come on.

Where are the innovations, Sony, Olympus or Panasonic coming up with ?
I am sure the next "(Semi ?-) PRO-NIKON" will look the same, will have a 1000p buffer and 500 cross-type AF- dots.
Dinos without the ability to adapt.
(Owned Nikon DSLRs from 2004-2012, nice cams those days) Area gone.

Best regards and a nice weekend.

Buy a Sony, I want this NIKON just as it is - LOVE IT - LOVE IT LOVET - Just as it is - Bulky, heavy, robust, practical, functional, performer - It would be a great disappointment to see a matches box like Sony for Me, but that is just Me, lol

Soggoth: Looks like the best Nikon's body design to date: pro buttons layout from 700/800/810 + tilt screen.

I wish Nikon made the same body for D750

Someone who values this camera enough to pay it it is a someone that does not use builtin flash. For 15$ you have a radio trigger for external flash and for 100$ you have a Younguo 568 with all desired specs and excelente reviews
