Did anyone read the part about "details are sketchy" before throwing the baby out with the bath water?

:)

Chill Negativos! Wait until the full disclosure before you burn down the Village.

If the optics and IQ are as good as I expect, this will be the "next" lens in everyones kit. I can hardly wait to see what type of image this Tamron delivers for $1200.

Photowyzard: Beautiful camera. I like almost everything about it. I am one of those guys who was around when Film was in its hay-day. Love the look, especially the Black body…it calls to me. I agree with many that the price point is too high, but they are not marketing this camera to me, so I am not going to go slit my wrists over it.

I have been using a D800 for over a year now and have gotten very comfortable with the massive mp output…16mp seems a bit weak to me for the money. However, compatibility with 50 years of fantastic glass is a real bonus. I am a huge fan of the old lenses and one of my current favourites is the Nikon 400mm f3.5. No video…who cares. I use a camera for photography, not video.

Will I buy this… no. Would I like to own it…yes, but not at 16mp and not at the price. Beautiful design, well done, Nikon….because you CAN!

:)) A sign…. well … lots of things call to me.

Nikon 200mm-400mm, Nikon 500mm, Nikon 600mm, Nikon 800mm, Nikon D4, they are all calling ……

You have no idea how much the Jaguar F type calls to me, over and over and over again….

So many callings, so little money to answer the calls ...

Another good reason to avoid Adobe's Cloud system. I have dealt with Abobe on a professional level for for decades….can't stand them.

It constantly boggles my mind why ANYONE would buy into this ridiculous Scheme of Adobe's to empty your wallet. Stop sending them money!

I have CS5 and CS6 and that is it for me. Not another penny to these morons. If you stop sending them your money and just wait, how long do you think before they go back to selling software again?

On Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? article (1514 comments in total)
In reply to:

bobbarber: Hey guys! Help me out!

I'm trying to decide between the E-M5 and the D800.

With the D800, I get two stops of ISO that I don't need, extra resolution that I don't need, the equipment is heavier, and I get to pay $2,000 extra for the privilege of carting around all that weight.

What's the downside to the D800? Is everybody choosing a camera other than the D800 just a crank?

Yaaaaa, I must be clueless.

Let's see, the D800 has:
• 2.5 x better resolution
• 30% better IQ
• faster AF
• lower noise at hi ISO
• longer battery life
• better res screen
• more storage slots
• more focus points
• built in flash
• more dynamic range
• better colour depth
• bigger viewfinder
• less shutter lag
• amazing HDR video capability
• continuous video focus
• a sensor that is 4x bigger.

Yup. I am voting for the Olympus cuz its smaller and cheaper and has a flip out screen.

Surely?

What do you DEFINE as "Camera of the Year" ? Just because it takes a picture doesn't make it relevant.

I would define it a little broader & include; ground shaking, industry changing technology that not only meets my needs, but shook the foundations of the photography industry in 2012. The camera was almost impossible to source for the better part of 2012, the camera that set sales records in most Local Camera Stores and generated the most hupe.... Uh, that would be the D800. Every other camera that came out in 2012 pales by comparison. That would be, in my books, CotY.

As nice a camera as the Olympus EM5 may be, I never even heard of it until I saw this silly poll.

If you were to consider Canon, Fuji and Pentax, I would turn an ear. Do any of those compare to the D800.... Nope. To throw Olympus into this group and somehow try to justify the silly poll results as meaningful?

Pleeeze! It doesn't even come close and to even include it is a joke.

You only don't need the resolution until you shoot that one killer image that brings you to your knees, then you will wish you had it.

Once you have the tools of perfection at your fingertips, it is really hard to let them go. I have never owned a better camera than the Nikon D800.

This poll, just like "Camera of the Year" from some rags you buy on news stands, means nothing. With publications like Popular Photography, the title should have been, "Not the Best Camera, just the most money spent here on Advertising".

I am sure, the numbers in this poll are padded and/or, people are not voting on what actually is the best camera because they haven't got a clue. How do you vote one camera against the other if you have never taken the same picture side by side with them and compared!?

You can't, and the poll means nothing.
