Why was a news article written about this? That site is gimmick, and does not offer real camera image comparisons. It might as well be a Hot or Not for photographers.

The Windows 8 tablets are expected to begin being released in just a couple of weeks. You couldn't have waited a couple of weeks, or gotten your hands on a preview tablet, for a more robust review? But nice to see the "iPad" messaging plastered into the reviews of all devices. No Apple fanboi there.

And why does a "Photographer's Tablet Workflow" review describe in detail the subpar cameras on the tablets? Other than the Instogram and Hipstomatic "photographers", do you honestly think the tablet camera plays a vital role in a photographer's editing workflow?

And where is dpreview's Nikon D4 camera review? I'm starting to think that dpreview these days is more about selling gear to the Instogram crowd, and less about pertinent gear information for the serious hobbyist or professional.

Bruce Bracken: Your Forum navigation dropdown options are now very complicated for Nikon topics.

You are going to confuse a lot of people who may not know the difference between DX and FX, or may not know specifically which models are DX and FX, by removing the specific camera models and lumping everything into DX and FX umbrella forums.

And what does Pro vs Consumer mean? Many people aren't going to know which DX forums to search or post in because they won't know which category their camera fits into.

And did you really just combine ALL of the FX cameras into one forum? Threads are going to get lost in that mass!

Why do you break out DX into Pro and Consumer, but you don't do that for FX?

If I have an FX camera, but I have a question about its DX functionality, do I post in the FX forum, or the DX forum? And which DX forum, Pro or Consumer?

Sorry, I've always liked dpreview.com, but you just made the forum navigation experience much worse for a whole lot of people.

Gotcha - thanks for the reply. I think for some people, visually, it is easier to quickly spot the camera model that they are familiar with and jump into their forum, than trying to figure outt he "kind" of camera they have, and where they should look.

Thanks again for the comment.
