On Nikon Df real-world samples gallery article (224 comments in total)

Everyone's now an expert, especially if they own a mirrorless Sony :)) As someone was pointing out, Nikon could have made it from solid gold and sold it for half this price and people would still complain. That low-resolution outdated D4 sensor and that heavy, cold gold camera body would have been no match for the A7r LMAO.

On Canon Korea teases new camera, EOS M2 or SL1/100D? article (259 comments in total)

Dear camera makers, we don't want a new camera. We want the current one to work and when the newer model arrives, we want it to be different, better.

I feel like we are being served the same warmed up soup every six month now ..

If at first you don't succeed, give up and do it all over again. Shame on Nikon for doing so ..

maxola67: So, if it's optically better than my 16-50 the latter would be sold.
I'm rather annoyed by the vignette produced when using pop-up flash(some pics went to the trash because of that).

Pop up flash stinks, why do you need a DSLR with an expensive 2.8 zoom if you use pop-up flash ?

I don't want to sound like a troll, but a 20-40 focal ratio combined with a 2.8-4 aperture would have made sense in 1984.

I bought a Nokia N9 some year and a half ago, probably the top offering at some point. The display is sh*t, when it gets cold outside, like 5-10 degrees Celsius, the display show a lot of lines, and when it goes below 0, the lines at the bottom merge and it becomes unreadable for like, 1 cm on the height of the screen. Really bumed up about it and there's nothing I can do, unless I wait for winter and take it to the shop while it's still cold. Lucky I have a lifetime warranty. Other then that, sometimes the battery charge drops significantly, from 100 to 0 in hours, even if I don't activate the internet connection and I just speak for like, 30 minutes. Nokia QC is nowhere what it used to be ..

I have had unpleaseant issues with a previous premium Nokia, the E55, I think I will never buy another Nokia.

nicolaiecostel: I don't think I've ever seen so many trolls and nay-sayers gathered in one place.
Even when Nikon fulfills the age-old wishes of the majority, it's still not good enough.

For 10 years I hear people wanting a digital FM, a retro dSLR with a retro 35 mm sensor. Now you got it and the design stinks. Cause it's old and retro ..

For years I hear people wanting a low MP high sensitivity sensor in an affordable model, just like the D700 was. Not that 16 Mp is low, but now you got it, and it's too low on resolution (Looool !). I print 35x70 cm high quality photo albums from my puny D700.

And it's really affordable (1/2 price compared to a D4, but same sensor so same IQ, and that's just to start), and it's plenty fast (5.5 FPS, decisive moments are shot and were shot with manual Leica's .. how many FPS ?), and it's damn sexy, and I could go on all day.

For me, this is a dream come true and the only thing I hate is the sh*t AF taken from the D7000. The rest of you don't deserve this camera.

Well, I was probably just being subjective and missing the fact that times have changed. A few years ago I was constantly hearing people demanding this.

@solidgecko: If Pentax comes up with a retro FF, it will be welcomed. But if it comes up with a crop retro, it will be lukewarm because olympus, panasonic and fuji allready have establised crop retro models and it's not an easy task bettering them.

DamenS: I love Nikon - but they are still one of the most stupid companies in existence ... how could they screw the pooch this badly ?

You are either trolling or missing the point altogether. They did this "pooch" very much rightly, and this cannot cost as much as the D610 for obvious reasons .. sensor, body build, optical viewfinder ...

Jeez ..

beavertown: When Sony and Olympus get more than 1000 msgs, it is only because they release innovative products.

Nikon only gets more than 1000 msgs because they screw up everytime.

What Nikon need to do is to listen.

Bye

What you need to do is post a fair post, not troll Nikon, who offers what both Sony and Olympus do not. Bye

I don't get it, why are all the sites reporting on this, this is just a commercial ..

The guy could have said anything, he is being paid !

This only proves that you can do hollyday pictures that look good, with your camera phone.

In reply to:

CarlPH: New Lens Release articles should have this warning:

Brace yourselves, the DOF equivalency posts are coming!

In terms of light gathering capability, this will behave like a f/1.2 ..
In terms of angle of view, this will behave like an 85
In terms of equivalent depth of field, this will behave like a 85 2.x

DOF is one thing and it varies with sensor size here, aperture is another.

MikeFairbanks: Better late than never. This lens has been out a long time, guys.

I think DP Review is losing focus. Perhaps.

They review by the sales chart. The 1Dx and D4, or this 40 mm, do not generate as much traffic as, say, the review of the HTC One, or the new rebel thingie from canon.

In reply to:

white shadow: Once in a while, Canon would produce some exceptional and affordable lenses, the 40mm f/2.8 being one of the latest.

The others are:
1) 70-200mm f/4.0L IS
2) 135mm f/4.0L IS
3) 50mm f/1.8

and the not so cheap but excellent 70-200mm f/2.8L IS MkII.

A very convenient lens to have on a full frame camera, not so bad even on an APS-C DSLR.

However, for me, I still prefer my Zeiss 35mm f/2.0 on my 5DMkII as it balance better, have better micro-contrast, more neutral colours and have an infinity stop. Obviously, the Zeiss is in a different league and price range but if quality is your main priority this is it. Good to have choices.

For those on a budget, the Canon 40mm f/2.8 is hard to beat.

How is the 50 1.8 exceptional ? I bought one for a friend and below f/2.8 it was soft and missed focus. And I have seen plenty other shots from it on the internet, showing the same pattern.

So, a D40 style body, at 900 dollars with a kit lens. You must be smoking some really strong stuff to fall for this one.

In reply to:

rusticus: again a camera that no one really needs

nikon - please build a digital F3 with a FF sensor, no frills for 1000 Euro

The FF sensor alone would cost 1000. The limited production run and the special requests for it would probably take it closer to 10.000 than 1000.

Go buy an Olympus OMD EMD EM DM5, or a Fuji XPro 1.
