DPR couldn't find a beach with a rock in the foreground or a waterfall near Seattle I guess. Boring urban!
Holy Moley! You lucky Aussies with your colorful birds!
adelbaum: Still waiting for a camera making better looking PHOTOS than the Fuji XT-1.(That includes my full frame Nikon.)
As a Nikon owner, I'm very grateful for that!
Doesn't matter much what Canon or Nikon do, one little camera is as about good as any other.
This seems like an uphill battle, but worth it to some, no doubt.
Dark and turgid, but sell pretty well, I have no doubt.
Really nice shot. I put on another layer just looking at it!
The blurry-edged street scene above would doubtless have come out better with the D810 and the 14-24. Not that the Pentax isn't a wonderful camera, but I really don't see five times the money in it.
Nice job, gentlemen. Everyone should have a camera this good!
Really nice shot. A D800 pic if I ever saw one :^)
Terrific shot. I'd clone out one or two hanging branches.
At least the DPR crew got out of the city for once and got some mountain shots!
The D3300 with kit lens kills this nice little camera at $350 less. Can't carry a one pound camera? Really?
DXO non, merci!
$799? Bwah hah hah!
It's good to be king :^)
Lassoni: The ergonomics are getting worse and worse with every new nikon body. Not only did it take 2 years for nikon to make "movie record" button customizable for ISO, but they also happened to move the meter mode selector to somewhere really really awkward. How are you supposed to hold those top left buttons, while simultaneously trying to spin the wheel with right hand finger. You could do this with a light lens, but even then it seems risky. You run into risk of damaging your mount, because there is no ergonomical way of doing this without losing the support of your lens, which in turn is big risk when you go into lenses that start weighting more (teles are obvious and heavy, but I struggled even with a 24-70).
This is really an inexcusable design choice. As if it's not bad enough when trying to switch between AF-S and AF-C whilst trying to support a lens... Why did they even had to put the movie button in there in the first place? D7000 had it right. Y fix something that isn't broken?
Cry us a river.
Mssimo: Im going to upgrade from the D800e but to be truthful, this is more of a way for nikon go get the price back to MSRP till the D900 comes out. Its a old trick, it works for cars and so also with cameras.
UMRP on the D800e is still $3300, as it has been from day one.
sandy b: I will get one just for birding, that makes it worth the price of the ticket alone. The V3 and CX70-300 cost over $2000, and is well worth it.
Look at the Nikon 1 forum at the BIF and other shots with the combo. Incredible. Hand held 810 mm equiv. with amazing AF. For low light I have my D600. For everything else I am getting a V3. I like how Nikon has reacted to the market and made the enthusiast model.
Now, either get the Sony sensor or tweak the Aptina, and it will be a do anything camera.
If anyone thinks the V rig will have the same image quality as a D7100/D800e with a big tele they will be disappointed.
Looks like a lot more folks think this is a good camera than some of the experts here.
