dg90: Pentax released the K-3?! I cannot believe this!
Whatever! I hope a review of Colin McClunkys Nikon DF-leather strap will be released soon. I guess as usually 10 pages long, right?
Yeah, and the Df viewfinder hump cover review must be due any moment.
My camera purchases are not based on this sites reviews. If it were I would have lost 4 months of shooting with my very- very nice K3. Bummer that the 'Flu card' does not transfer DNG's, no shares in jpgs, no 'Flu card' for me.
'Little need to use Raw most of the time'. ?? What do You know about my needs? Or are You talking to Yourself?
JohnEwing: Glad I bought mine on the Rockwell Principle - get a refurb. New shutter, pristine sensor, no problems. Great camera. Who needs a 610?
Concerning my *next* camera, I'd be very happy if people started buying just-out kit right now, so that I can buy another refurb next year or the one after, with all the problems ironed out.
Seriously, though (well, I wasn't exactly joking) I'm glad to see this move. It speaks of a will to better customer relations, and is vaguely reminiscent of Fuji's updating the X100 firmware after the camera had been discontinued, the difference being that Fuji's gesture had goodwill behind it and Nikon's has more than a touch of contrition, albeit unacknowledged.
'Rockwell?' Oh dear !
AbrasiveReducer: Love 'em or hate 'em, you have to admit they address things right away before major damage is done. Someone there is right on top of things. Maybe this will set an example and GM will admit the Corvair really is a dangerous car.
Did You say'Right away before major damage was done?' And 'someone is on top of things?' At Nikon nobody is on top of anything right now!
Too late! All my Nikon gear lies on the bottom of my fish pond as part of the underwater landscape. Goldfish googling themselves in the D600 mirror.

Gazeomon: Another predictable review of another boring middle of the road camera. What about the more exciting gear like Pentax K3 and their 'limited' lenses? 'Imaging Resource' is now my favourite review site.
MikeF4Black, You don't need me to elaborate. There are numerous credible reviews and YouTube clips out there. DPREVIEW has it's own 'review culture' which shows that interesting products do not necessarily get prominent review exposure on this site. It's the 'bread and butter' stuff from the big volume players which come first.
select: I have this camera and I love it! It produces such high quality images... for sure it's the best camera in this segment, but Nikon should advertise a lot more.This camera destroy the Canon 650D/700D
Nikon destroys the Canon's. Does that make You feel better?Long live photography.

Not one shot with tree foliage. I would have liked to see that.I am sorry. It's winter in the northern hemisphere. I am living in Australia and it's all lush here. Apologies.
Yoaaaaaawwwnn zzzzzzz, another Nikon plastic entry toy! just like the other one we had a little while ago. Chrrrr r r r
Ontario Gone: Mirrorless apsc have an innate advantage over full body apsc cameras: they can use speed boosters and get, essentially, very near FF image quality. More light equals a lower iso used per given scene which equals higher DR, less noise, and better colors. However, some people don't like the ergonomics of mirrorless. I personally think a mirrorless version of the K3 would be the perfect camera. Better than any FF on the market today. Keep the big grip, remove the mirror box, add sony's EVF, perfection.
Please define 'perfect camera'
Edmond Leung: No other choice. The best photographic machine in the world now!Must buy it.Price is reasonable and affordable. Below $3,000. Make sense.
You already held it? They already designed cameras like that a long time ago. I wouldn't touch that thing with a barge pole.
vFunct: Only talented people can use this camera.
Untalented people have to use Sony or Canon or Olympus.
Also, it is a mark of amateurs to use cute baby mirror less cameras.
Aww how cute - a newb photographer with a mirror less camera!
Maybe one day the mirror less camera photographer will grow up and use a Reflex system like the big boys do.
Yay! We're rooting for you, cute little mirror less camera kiddos!
You are really talented to make an idiot of Yourself.
Dinosaur poser cam. A cocktail of the part bins of different existing Nikons in that short lived trendy retro skin. Where is the 'Hasselblads' wood carver? No exotic wood trimmings? Anybody still waiting for the mystical D400?
Looks like some russian cold war KGB cam from the 50s. This kit is for the sentimentalist with money to burn. I still have the F2 somewhere lying around and don't want to find it.
Edmond Leung: We all like this camera.... just ignore those minority who don't like it.... Those minority were all bullshitting.
Nikon, our most concern is when can we expect to buy this new camera. Can we buy it before this X'mas?
Hope we all can get it ASAP!
Do You always buy Your gear by rumours, teasers and marketing froth? What do You actually know about the camera You want to buy ASAP?
nofumble: Nikon just want to send you a message, wait don't sell your Nikon gears and buy the Sony A7 just yet.
