Oh wow, so glad I stumbled across this...no way can I troll here. Thanks DPR, for making this reference available. +2!

Karl Summers: This camera wasn't ready to be released prior to Christmas, yet Nikon did it anyway before the camera was thoroughly tested for defects. Now there is a major recall and Nikon is taking a huge hit for it. The company has poor leadership. I remember a poster stating the Canon 5D Mark III had the same issue, yet I don't remember a major recall for that camera.

I don't need the constant headaches that Nikon inspires. Canon may not have the latest greatest sensor tech, but at least I can rely on my camera.

And one more thing, this is what you get for buying the first incarnation of a new product line...suckers.

Wow, talk about a load of nonsense. The 5D Mark III AF is incredibly accurate and consistent. And about that micro focus, you can adjust it at both ends of the zoom spectrum...at the same time. Try again there buddy.

Sigh...

steelhead3: Nikon is learning a lesson and should be commended for looking after its customers. DP may re-think its rating as another Nikon camera goes in for a major recall (without the Chinese government getting involved). Sony is having a major problem with its 60 flash and is acting like Nikon with the 600 problems. With the prices these companies charge, they should bend over backwards to keep us happy.

Because Nikon acknowledged the problem, it warrants a revision to 104% Platinum award. Happy?

I actually liked my D610, but the snickers and snide comments I received from passers-by were just too much. Now, all I get are compliments, no one dares insult my Canon.

Karl Summers: This seems like an insanely simple question, but why not dual CF card slots? Why not at least ONE CF card slot?

Ah ok, I thought "CFast" and CF Cards were synonymous. Thanks for the info.

Ok, maybe I'm out of the loop as far as flash memory tech is concerned, but from the answers here I can conclude:
1. CF is a dead format
2. CF is being supplanted...but by what?

If the debate between XQD and CF isn't settled, then what, exactly, is leapfrogging these two?

SD???

Ok, fair enough, so why not at least one XQD slot?

olypan: I think this may be a record advertising post. Brought back to the top again and again.

I guess Nikon pays well.

Yes. I thought the 24 hour repeat coverage of the Canon 7DII was impressive too.

Nikon and Canon reviews are click-bait gold. No two brands bring out more trolls. Pure. Common. Sense.

This review keeps getting bumped to the top of the "news" list. Maybe the moderators are hoping for 1,000 posts of hate & envy?

Tilted Plane: A pretty careful avoidance of Nikon (or Sony) comparisons, overall. Too bad. Head-to-head comparisons are really (!) helpful. Does this hold up next to a D750? Or even the D610? Or the similarly priced A7II? If so, when, where, under what shooting conditions?

Thanks for the prompt reply, Rishi, I knew you couldn't answer my question.

Then tell us, Rishi, in your grand wisdom, which AF systems have been proven better than this one(at a similar price point)? Don't just say "incorrect" and run away...

Joe Ogiba: Maybe the 7D Mark III will have 15fps and 4K like the Samsung NX1 by 2020.

RAW: No need for a 300mm...I shoot people. Canon is the best for that, IMO.
