I get the impression that this lens was nothing to brag about, with it's biggest complaints; lack of VR, and it's Heavy weight. But the price hasn't yet dropped? Anyone here try it, and care to comment? Thanks. ... Joe
I think this camera is targeted for kids, just look at the color choices!
When you put the camera down on a flat surface, I think it will fall forward onto it's lens. Remember the Bogen/Manfrotto 6 sided chunk of metal, with their big heavy tripod screw and it's collar? Very strong, but not very convenient for a QR Plate. Still, there's always a selection of them selling on the used market. I'm a bit surprised at this company, they've designed some real nice gear… until now!
Are these not coming to the USA?
Ben O Connor: Interesting upgrade...
Its so "last season" compare to D750, more expensive than D7000/71000, and still has something inside of it called "mirror" !!! If its OVF sake, well Pentax has the best of all at that crop. Don't tell me its "burst rate sake", coz better burst at smilar sensor sized NEX cameras of Sony.
Hopefully final image from this camera is good, other than that, who would bother buying one!
It's got several improvements, like the Expeed 4 image processor, is one generation newer than the Expeed 3 in the D7100. What did all of you expect Nikon to Rebuild the whole camera? Why mess with an almost perfect camera, more than was necessary? They've kept the Price close, while Lowering the prices of the D7100 & D7000. So, it doesn't mean to upgrade from the D7100, but for those that were going to buy from this group, they now have a choice, and those that are interested in Video, will choose the D7200. The comments from those with the D90 & D300 cameras must have been a joke! You can still buy a D300S, it's $1696.95 at B&H So you can have that over the $1200 D7200 if that's what you all want!
Steveke: I've been absolutely thrilled with my Nikon D750. It takes awesome photos. I can't believe all this whining. So there's an anomaly with blinding back-lighting, and that will be fixed. gratis. Although I admit that I haven't been able to evoke that anomaly. Give it a rest and take some photos.
Shouldn't you be grateful that this issue hasn't affected you …yet, rather than saying that thousands of people are whining about their cameras? Maybe your photography hasn't put you in the same circumstances as others, but that is not to say that it will never happen to you. I have a feeling that these cameras will be recalled, and the issue will be wide scale, and if it is, you will surely want to have yours included as well, just to protect your investment for the future! Fate has a funny way of dealing with comments like yours!
Mike FL: Well done, and I like these photos' composition with the basic of the basic; Symmetrical and Rule of Thirds.
Hi Mike,I think it was like 3 of the 5 images on that top row, that had the exact same theme, stairways or not. I think Toni did a great job on this project, but it's too bad that lenses needed to be borrowed for it. That's the only part of this that bothered me, cause it's bound to be used in some promotional way (aside from this... Ad/Story). I continue to be amazed at the images that "Pro" Photographers are producing (and getting away with!) and I think that many times, it's the Amateurs that are producing the better images! Btw, Mike please don't take every comment to heart, especially on dpr! Happy New Year!
Mike,Did you actually spend your time looking for that image? That's what you wanted us to see?
The lemons landed so evenly, on every step. So coincidental, so …inspiring!
Beautiful work, the colors are amazing. Excellent images! … Joe
You've got some fantastic images here Detail Man. You have got quite an eye for beauty. The slide is excellent! … Joe
They have 6K in Japan, do they have better vision than us?
SirSeth: How long do you predict it will be before Canon, Nikon, and Pentax realize that mirrorless is worthy of their high end customers?
Imagine the cost of retooling for mirrorless cameras! … Joe
KerryBE: What a great event. Getting this organized on the heels of Photokina is really an accomplishment. I saw some segments and look forward to catching up with the others.
Great job DPR!
I echo KerryBE's comment, You did a great job there Barney! … Joe
tecnoworld: Are the interviews available for "non live" viewers? If so, where?
I've checked twice at creativelive, right after my prior reply, and just prior to this one (Saturday night & Sunday morning) and they were rebroadcasting both times, so it's worth checking out for anyone who is interested. Thanks for the input Jeff, we all appreciate your help! … Joe
Eleson: Interesting dpr-talk on user interface. Aren't we all very conservative in terms of the look and feel? - Due to conservative users. Some of the cameras that have tried to change the approach have been more or less slaughtered and dismissed as cameras for non-photographers. No photog's in their right minds would invent the Sony QX series!
It reminds me of when japanese motorcycles was introduced in europe. It was by many not looked upon as real bikes as they didn't leak oil, you didn't need to know that much about servicing a bike. But it turned out that the new riders was more interested in riding that servicing.
Many iPhone shooters want better pictures, but couldn't care less about f-stop, (t-stop), and totally strange shutter speed options, and something called ISO (the gain setting of an OP-amp ??? plz ...) . Oh, and sensor sizes.- Some actually think that a 1" sensor is 1" in atleast one direction!
Today, it's a lot like only F1 drivers and servicemen review cars...
princewolf, You summed it up quite well for a great many people out there. Answering Q's for a blog site, I found that the same posts continuously came in- they expected the best results, by just making their purchase! Many P&S cameras end up on the shelf, because they can get the same result with a cell phone camera. This is one of the shortfalls of Digital imaging, and sometimes I wish I was still Processing & Printing 100% because of them!
The re-runs are hit & miss at creativelive.com Despite their claim of 24/7 rebroadcasts, they are very often "off the air" entirely. But you should try several times anyhow, you may get lucky. Usually their rebroadcasts depend on sales. If the sales are too low, they plug it again. If you are watching one that goes off, just sign in again to continue. Here on dpr, they were supposed to have the separate clips available, but it would take a few days to prepare. You can PM Barney and I'm sure he can tell you exactly when they will be ready. I hope that helps you. … Joe
Samuel Dilworth: I think I watched most of this in the end.
Art Wolfe – there’s an unbridgeable cultural chasm between us, but I still got something from his interview.
Mark Weir – this guy has poise and gravitas and all the more so when he’s in the studio rather than on Skype. An immeasurable asset to Sony. The other reps all had interesting things to say too, especially when they weren’t selling their latest baubles.
Barney – good job, well judged. And I see you’ve worked on your personal style since last year. (Is it okay to say that?) Nice boots. Proof that geeks need not be slobs or grey.
Missed Richard’s lucid clarity.
Missed Simon’s withering big-picture critique of the state of the industry.
By the way, has Shawn gone? He seems to have been replaced by “DPReview Staff” on the site.
Barney put on a shirt today, but it looks like the same jacket!
Tanio: what happened to the Nikon D7200?
The D7000 & D7100 are still current production models. Why would they bring out a D7200 now? Do you realize that selling cameras is their business?
