Charrick: How this revolutionary camera can get an 80% to the D600's 87%, I have no idea. Somehow, I think that oil splashes show up on RAW files, too. Sure, maybe it was reviewed before that debacle, but then why not change the score? OK, let's instead compare the A7 to the D610. The D610 has more buttons and JPEG might be better. But the A7 is the smallest full-frame digital camera in the world, and is (along with the A7r) the only true full-frame digital "mirrorless" camera. Shouldn't that count for something? It's like if someone invents a hoverboard that only gets 1 kilometer or 1 mile per charge...so you give a much higher score to a regular skateboard. It doesn't make sense to me.
The oil on sensor problem was overblown.I think Leica would like to show you their full-frame mirrorless camera line. The line has a complete set of lenses, by the way.Canikon have refined their lenses, ergonomics and image processing for decades. You think Sony can catch up in a few years?
RetLaEnvEmp: Several things noted in this picture. People/animals shot by a rifle bullet usually just drop down/collapse into a heap or jump up/stiffen then collapse with a fatal shot. A rifle bullet, with enough velocity, causes a reverse in blood flow in the body - hence the bleeding from the nose and mouth and broke blood vessel on bare skin often found when the body trunk is shot. Also a machine gun likely would have struck the body of the soldier with more than one bullet thus pushing the body backwards.
Possible explanations (if photo real) - Soldier shot multiple times by machine gun (at least twice) evidenced by body moving backwards and being airborne; the body stiffen/jumped up evidenced by rifle being flung by soldier; the Soldier was killed evidenced by dark color of face, broken blood vessel in skin, compared to color of ears which would not have the immediate blood rupturing flow from the fatal machine gun wounds.
I'm not sure why you think the body is airborne. It appears to me from the way that his knees are bent and both feet are on the ground that he's falling backwards awkwardly; it's almost like he's sitting down.
Deliverator: Saw this on my Nikon service page, dated Feb 22. It basically says to try to clean it with a blower, and if that doesn't work, send it in for repai. Why all the griping?---To users of the D600 digital SLR cameraAnswer ID 18186| Published 02/21/2013 12:25 P | Updated 02/22/2013 08:41 AM Some D600 users have reported the appearance of random spots on their images......It has come to our attention that... they may be reflected noticeably in images and removal may be difficult using normal measures....
As a first step, please follow the guidance from the D600 User's Manual (pages 301-305) related to the Clean Image Sensor function and manual cleaning using a blower bulb.
If these measures do not remove all dust particles and you are still experiencing problems, then please consult your nearest Nikon service center...
See the following for instructions on requesting service by a Nikon service center....
It's pretty clear that not all of the D600s suffer from the problem. It's also pretty clear that Nikon now replaces the mirror box on those sent in with the problem. So, again, why all the whining?
Mescalamba: You got some virtual positive points from me. This type of talk about D600 and D610 was exactly what I thought about when I wrote that bit under D610 first impressions.
I would call Pentax K-3 simply Pentax K-, cause its simply presented as such.
Im also quite curious about that 1/160 issue. I know this from first hand, but I have camera which is ages old (not new), but with IBIS too.My problematic speed is 1/25 everything under is fine, everything over too. My guess is that it might be related either to shutter shock, or some sync frequency rate (IBIS probably vibrates at certain frequency, that frequency might be somehow related to this, just idea).
Overall, I like this summary, keep it going. :)

I have used DxO Optics Pro since version 6, and I like it a lot. To those who have used both: is there anything in ViewPoint that is not already in Optics Pro? A short look at the website seems to indicate there might be...
nigpd: A couple of technical questions on Dean Rutz's view on downloading images and ethernet connnectivity1. He says he uses Photo Mechanic to ingest the images and a plugin to go straight to Photoshop. What do you think that plugin could be?2. Regarding ethernet connectivity, he says big problems with Ethernet connectivity from the camera is that if you set your IP address for the camera you take your device out of the IP for Internet access. What does he mean by this?
You are right, amanita. I don't think he has thought of your solution of using a portable router. Hopefully he has read your post. ;-)
Tommygun45: Is the omission of the filter over the sensor similar to what Fuji does with the XP1 and XE1 or are we talking about a different filter here? I though their filter was an AA filter. Are there a multitude of filters in front of sensors?
No. Fuji does something entirely different. Fuji uses a completely different RGB pattern on their X-Trans sensor filters than the traditional Bayer filters used by Nikon, Canon, Sony, etc. Fuji claims the layout of their filters obviates the need for an anti-alias filter.See:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayer_filterhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayer_filter#Fujifilm_.22X-Trans.22_filter
If Nikon produces it as an unlocked cell phone in the next product cycle, they will have created the ultimate travel zoom. They won't be able to keep them on the shelves.
