    The D750 is a great camera and would be a compelling option if you are entering DSLR photography or if you already have compatible Nikkor lenses. But at FF and a body-only street price of $2300 for...

    With regards to section 13 of this review on 'real world' DR, Simon Joinson of DPR says that the lens has no effect on DR. The 7Dii was paired with an EF 50mm f/1.4 and the D7000 was paired with...

    @Rob - agree, touch screen enabled focus & shutter release can be very useful, especially in macro photography or with video work. But I have not been able to use it effectively in fast paced...

    Fully agree. WiFi is 'nice to have' only. Need remote shooting in a pro environment? Use EOS Utilities with a USB3.0 cable to PC setup. The EOS App does not transfer jpg files at full resolution to...

    @Joe - okay, now repeat your silly post using exactly the same approach for the D7100....
    How does the D7100 at 85%, and it's list of cons, get to a Gold award then?
    Get real buddy.

    In section 13 of this review - to what degree does the differences in lenses used affect the results? The 7Dii was paired with an EF 50mm f/1.4 and the D7000 was paired with Nikkor 18-35mm...

    Gingerbaker hit the nail on the head. Fully agree

    Fully agree with Richard - horses for courses. As a system, the 7Dii will be a top performer.

    Fully agree.

    Your perceptions on sensors are flawed - go see Tony Northrup's video on Youtube about this sensor, where he points out why this sensor is on par with Sony and where he corrects the flawed analysis...

    Fully agree - compare their sentiments here to the DPReview video on Youtube... where they loved it. It's like they could not get themselves to admit that this is a wonderful APS-C camera. 84% with...

    So far, the xxD line has consistently shown these advantages over the Rebel range (also known as the xxxD range):
    - bigger build with better handling and weather sealing
