McShan....if you want to get technical Chris posted first...so Theo is right. Plus...my pictures are much better than Chris's so Theo was right about that too (tongue in cheek...sort of).

On What is equivalence and why should I care? article (2071 comments in total)

At first I couldn't understand why so many are confused by what is really a fairly easy concept...
But then I remember that not everyone is old like me and came from the days of film where 35mm film was the 'standard'. I guess for a younger generation that never shot film...and can't afford a full frame digital...the way they 'see' through a 35mm lens on an APS-C (53mm) may seem perfectly normal to them....just a thought of an old man rambling here... (ok, I'm 42 but that's still kind of old).

Ya know Chris....this 'pointless exercise' produced more interesting photos than what you've got on your website...Boom! Ya...I went there.

JamesD28: Meanwhile, Canon are still....... nowhere to be seen.

@RealityCheck - I use iso 640 or less for 95% of my photos....so sucks for me that I shoot Canon and not Nikon....since I am missing out on increased dynamic range (bigtime) AND increased resolution. So, tell me again how I am 'miss-informed'.

Like I say..I'm a Canon guy but so many guys like you have your head in the sand it's not funny. Sony makes a much better sensor than Canon these days...spin it however you like but those are the facts.

That said....it's all very relative as the quality from my 'ancient' 5D2 is still amazing IMO.

nikon power: Don't let the price scare you.
Nikon's shutter durability is 200,000 cycles.
$3,299/200,000 = 1.6 cent per picture.
Other branded cameras' durability cycle may be the same or less but the EXIF from their photos won't show NIKON, the King of high end DSLR.

@nikonpower - thx for contributing the most ridiculous, stupid comment of the day.

Jake64: Here is a fact that I just made up but is true; 90 percent of the people that buy this camera or any of its variants are not professionals but instead people who still think more megapixels make you a better photographer.

What's your point?? 90% of photogs who buy DSLR's of any make/model are amateurs.

Just another Canon shooter: It would be interesting to see if the ISO 64 is a gimmick or it is actually an increase in the well capacity. If the latter, this would be something new in the FF world.

Well....that would be something if you're right!

larrytusaz: Why does anybody care about the video specifications of this high-grade stills camera? If I had $3000 to drop on this I'd do so for the amazing pictures it can take, not the Vimeo or YouTube clips it can record. It's an SLR, not a camcorder.

Larrytsuaz - I agree with you in part....I've no interest in video. That said....it would be stupid for Nikon to leave it out.

Hey Larry...were you one of the execs who ran Kodak??

K, I'm a troll because I own/owned Canon gear (a lot of it) and yet I feel I have the right to criticize the company as their sensors need improving? Seems logical. You, aside from baiting me into this pointless tirade have not come up with a single valid point...which is what unintelligent people usually do who are unable to win an argument. I'm out.

Serickmetz - I like how anyone who criticizes Canon HAS to be a troll. I've owned the Ellan II, EOS3, 20D, 5D, 1DSII, 7D, 5D2 and S90...don't believe me, check out my gallery.

Yes, Canon makes great cameras but their sensor tech is behind the times, to say otherwise is ridiculous.

Seriously?? I'm a Canon guy but they are WAYYYY behind in sensor tech at the moment. The 5D3 is a GREAT camera stuck with 2009 sensor tech. Canon better come up with something big in the next 6 months because many of us are tired of waiting.

JPR.lda: Message to Nikon!!!
Do you Nikon think your users are mentally retarded?
D4/D4s are only a little bit better then D3s
D810 is only a little bit better then D800
V3 is not an upgrade from V2

Is D810 your answer to D800 focus problems?, Like D610 was for dirty D600 sensor?

Where is???:
- Integrated WiFi
- standard interface across models? All my 3 Nikon camera have a different interface.
- a solution for focus problem on D800! (My D800 has been to Nikon tech support but the only lens that focus properly is 70-200 F2.8, all other lenses can only use center point).
- Wireless flash (just look at pocket wizards)
- Standard battery and charger?
- Real silent mode?

This list can go on and on, and you will not get my cash until you produce a camera that I need.

I own D3s and D800 and V2 and I am not upgrading, spending my money on a new camera that does not improve on previous cameras or solve my problems with existing models.
Pls note: after 45 years w Nikon, Sony looks very interesting.

If you don't like it don't buy it....

Predator...you're not allowed to worry about all three things, they're mutually exclusive. Good photographers only use iPhones, amateurs all suck, and pros only care about the bottom line.

In reply to:

Mssimo: ISO 64 should be a big deal when it comes to the numbers game (DXO-Mark) This camera might be able to hit 14.5 or 15 stops of DR. In the real world, it would be the same as the current cameras from ISO 100-6400 and about the same as canon from ISO 1600+ as far as DR.

I doubt the DR is improved at iso64...in all likelihood it is reduced. Take a 5D3 for example....iso50 is reduced DR from iso100. Just because they have enabled iso64 does not mean it is the native iso of the camera...

kk123: I won't buy D810. Stick to my D7100 until a D400 or D9300 with at least 8 fps comes.

full frame vs APS-C...they're not even in the same discussion.

Blah, blah, blah....yes, it's the photographer, not the camera...tell us something we don't know. Come up with a modicum of originality...really.

I get so tired of people who spout this kind of self-righteous junk...like it's something we don't already know. By the way...you're posting to a gearhead site...so of course people are here to discuss the gear. Duh.

Tom Caldwell: I guess at some stage Chinese made lenses must come of age. Just as much as the first post WWII Japanese output was not accepted but within a relatively short time had finished off the bulk of camera manufacturers in Europe.

Not sure when the US camera/lens industry died - was it Polaroid and Kodak?

But I am sure there are plenty of good optical engineers and talent in the USA it has just resiled from mass production of camera objects. Right now if it is not made in Germany or Japan it cannot possibly be any good.

Alec's right...Apple is the perfect example......most of their products are of exceptional fit and finish...and all made in China.

Suntan: Exactly what the world needs. Even more uninspiring pictures of poorly posed people, taken in flat light, with their ears and noses completely blurred.

-Suntan

Just because you lack the thought process and creativity to use a lens like this then it must be useless...right. If you think all this is good for is 'poorly posed people with ears and noses completely blurred'....well....maybe you should shoot more.

MikeF4Black: Who is really interested in ISO's higher than 6400? I'm not. The A7s appears to be no more than a hype.

Brownie....it's useless for me because of my catalog of 10's of thousands of images I can count one my fingers how many were shot at iso6400...and it's not because I have junk cameras. IMO it's a niche to be in the small group that actually needs that ability for high ISO.
Given the choice between high ISO ability (A7S) and resolution/dynamic range (A7R)...I would take the A7R any day of the week.
