twichma: Note that the price for the D810a is listed as $3799.95 on Nikon USA's website.

And on Amazon... not sure why it wasn't in the release but I'll add it. Thanks!

In reply to:

brownie314: Did Samsung not provide a sample to Dpreview in time for them to write a first impressions review?

I believe we'll be getting one in late Feb/early March.

nekudza: What is the difference between 50-230 I and II? Just this 'II' mark? o_O

We can't figure that out either.

Tonkotsu Ramen: You should add that they reduced the minimum focusing distance by 15 cm (from 30cm to 15cm) on the wide end, and 5cm (from 40cm to 35cm) on the long end, for the 16-50

Good find- we had no specs or a list of changes and totally missed this!

In reply to:

Preamp: Did they really put 17 elements in only three groups?

What Barney meant to say was 17 elements in 12 groups. It's fixed now.

In reply to:

arhmatic: The weight, size are not posted... Am I missing anything?

Or maybe this is omitted, for a reason?

We didn't have that data at launch but it's in there now.

sdh: What's the small dark rectangle thing above the viewfinder in picture #'s 6 & 11? Proximity sensor to automatically turn off the LCD when you put the camera to your eye?

yup

In reply to:

Treeshade: Page 13:

...the VR image stabilization system should be "god"...

I guess using the D5500 was a religious experience for Barney. Regardless I fixed the typo.

In reply to:

JeanPierre Thibaudeau: DPR, does the new 55-200mm provide 3 or 4 stops advantage? Both numbers are mentioned here and there on the preview for this lens. I doubt it can provide a 4 stops advantage, as listed in the above grille.

Three stops. I'll look at the other page to see what's there.

In reply to:

Steen Bay: "This F3.4-6.5, 50X optical zoom is equivalent to a whopping 24-1000mm". Even better/worse. It's actually equivalent to a "whopping" 24-1200mm (like SX50).

Whoops, thanks. It was late when I wrote all this.

Previously I said that the appearance of bias was counter to the precepts of professional journalism. I stated it strongly and I should have been more specific about that applying only to the APPEARANCE of bias (the devil is in the details, on my end and on your end, pro reviewers). So, we have: one Canon guy, guys who used to shoot Canon, and most are Sony and Nikon currently.

Thank you for reminding me to take the Canon 16-35 off of my wishlist! I'm pretty happy with the 17-40.

Uh oh, the Nikon guys are back to take my keyboard away.

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.

@SmilerGrogan:

You should see Barney's collection of golden tuppences!

In reply to:

surlezi: To the authors: you write on the first page of the article:
"and the same OLED viewfinder display (as the D810)"
You must be meaning the same optical viewfinder ??

Well, it is the same OVF that has the OLED panel at the bottom for displaying shooting info, so both are true.

In reply to:

Jim Kaye: The description of the one-direction AF sensors as "horizontally sensitive" is a bit misleading. With the camera in landscape mode (as in the video posted in the review showing low-light focusing), a peripheral sensor fails to focus on a vertical line. Isn't this because it is actually "vertically sensitive" (meaning that it detects contrast along a vertical line)? Since a vertical white line on a black background doesn't present much contrast in this direction, the sensor doesn't see it. There is lots of horizontal contrast, though (black on the left of the vertical line, then the white line itself, then black again to the right of the line). By "horizontally sensitive" I imagine the reviewer means that the sensor "sees" horizontal (but not vertical) lines. But the sensor itself must be oriented vertically with the camera in this orientation, so I would call it "vertically sensitive." Or am I missing something?

Grabbing popcorn for when Rishi responds to that comment...

In reply to:

Tharaphita: I think it is worth to note that about SD cards clearing buffer UHS-II class card works actually at 45MB/s speed at UHS-I cameras like D750. UHS-I class at 95MB/s would better to test.

We tried several different UHS-I cards as well and found no difference in performance or buffer clearing times.
