jm67: Ugh. Yes, I'm the only guy on the planet who's not a fan of facebook.

Count me in mate.

"images are sharper and appear more three dimensional" ? (D4)
Never laughed harder in my life! Truly worthy to be published a day earlier (on April Fool's)

I hoped to finally have Focus+Release priority in AF-S mode on my D3s... no such luck... :-(

Looks mighty tasty... it will go well with my 85mm f/1.4 Sigma (another cracking lens)

Mark Kneen: Still yet to work out why anyone one really needs an iPad other than to say ooohhh look at me with the latest kit. I mean, really, 64 GB of storage for £550.... you're 'aving a laugh surely?? Get yourself a half decent laptop with 10x storage and faster for the same money plus it will actually DO things rather than just show stuff.

I sold many weddings by simply showing our portfolio on an iPad. It has proven to be one of our best selling tools ever. I believe the same can be done with any of the half decent and big enough tablets out there, we just happen to have an iPad (first generation). Any laptop pales in comparison as a sales tool.

ZeevK: I really do not understand the need foe new release to add support for new camera. This can be easily accomplish through external files like .dll or similar. It's only a new swet of parameters to be used by existing algorithm - not dedicated algorithm for each brand or model...

They addressed some of the speed issues as well...

Kassra: enough already with that same old body shape... this is NOT the most beautiful or the most functional or the most practical body shape a camera could ever have. perhaps the folks at the design department need some imagination?!

Hope they never change the shape too drastically... It's like the 911 of cameras... (unfortunately only in terms of design and not on "performance")

If Leica would have pulled out a similar package at the same price, everyone would say "Wow! What a bargain"...

Photozopia: I'm in for one .... BUT ..... first I gotta email Apple to make a B&W only Cinema display. Couldn't possibly process the M-M output on a full colour one! Keeping It Real Leica!

(Sarcasm alert - in case you were wondering!)

Hey, such a display would be awesome to watch timeless old flicks on... stuff like City Lights, The Maltese Falcon and Casablanca...and so on...

motobloat: At last, a camera for hipsters living off of their parents' money! Pretty easy to afford with a $10,000 a month stipend from dad, and soooo retro! Does it do instagram filters too?

Seriously though, besides hipsters and the insanely wealthy, I can't see much of a target market for this specialty device...

Well Leica is German and all Germans own now a second property. It's called Greece.

Before all of you jump at my throat, I've seen these EXACT words on subway ad billboards all over London...

What I didn't quite get maybe they should clarify that:

Does D800's sensor's have greatest pixel count of any non medium format DSLR currently on the market ?

[sarcasm off]

In reply to:

Poss: Will anyone inform Sony and Nikon of the need for BETTER pixels ? Not MORE ?

Downsampling will NOT get you around high pixel density sensor diffraction.
At some point people will understand this physical limitation, even though my hopes are pretty low this will happen anytime soon.

On First Impressions: Using the Nikon D4 article (185 comments in total)
In reply to:

srados: Why is that on these forums there is a LOT of people that complain and nit-pick about features like "how they will not buy camera because button does not exist". It reminds me about commercial when guy is sitting in formula 1 and obviously does not have money to purchase it, he was asking a sales person "does it comes in blue"??? It seems to me photographers are bunch of cry-babies that did forgot the fact that not so long ago we were shooting FILM and that was a challenge...especially changing roll in the middle of the shoot.No button to press...not to mention 5-10% of failed pictures for wedding for example.For the record I will continue to use my trusty Canon 20D...I like the new Nikon line!!!Especially 4D.If I could afford it to make money with it, I would buy it, no I am not asking does it come in blue... :-)

Somehow I never loved my old 20D...
Try a used but not abused old 5D... you'll see what I mean... :-)

GordonAtWork: Isn't photography about the end result ? It's great having the newest, fastest, most hunky-doryest model around but I think most are being swept along with all the hype. Good that Nikon, Canon etc are pushing the technological barriers but the images are what count.
No good having a great camera but not having the talent to use it properly.

The end result depends on (in order from the subject to the photographer) the light on the subject, the lens you're putting on, the camera you have and the little grey cells between one's ears.
None of those is more or less important in the process than the other.

Can I get good results (and a good laugh) using Instagram at a wedding? Sure I can. Will I use an iphone to shoot the entire wedding ? Ummm... no.

In reply to:

Yanko Kitanov: The images are crap as usually - instead of advertising any cam DPReview samples are anti-marketing for these cameras. I use many brands. All are quite under-performing on DPR samples. Besides the pure IQ these samples also useless in terms of sensor testing - mostly mid ISO, mostly open, mostly soft, mostly poorly exposed.....a darn shame really. "Reviewers".......:)))))

Sometimes conclusions of camera reviews here are just as perplexing...

On First Impressions: Using the Fujifilm X-Pro1 article (228 comments in total)

Played a bit with one of these last weekend at my local Henry's. After becoming accustomed lugging a fully decked D3s all day long, the little Fuji seems like it should be able to float in midair...

AF seemed quite OK and loved to have an aperture ring to fiddle with.

Nice camera, the first in years I'm really getting excited about.
