I am not remembering ever seeing a Nikon questionnaire for D300 users. I don't get Nikon claim catering and listening to user needs. The only thing they seemed to have "listened" is that for years now D300 users were waiting for a replacement and in the end they gave up. And what made Nikon make the D500 most probably was the market monopoly of 7D Mk II and the related large number of D300 users switching to 7D Mk II.

If they somehow listened to users (cause i don't get how they are doing it) i doubt that D500 would have been flashless and with two different kind of card slots or 20MP instead of 24 (even if that would mean 8fps instead of 10)

IF they indeed ..."learn", i hope they will SOON learn also from CNX-D .... Its a disgrace and total client humiliation

On article Nikon releases Capture NX-D 1.0.3 and View NX 2.10.2 (45 comments in total)

I need to add my rant against this piece of sh*** software. If i realized how bad it is i would had never went the D7200 way. This crime of shooting NX2 in the head and together many users like me who were counting on it and instead give this piece of cr*** that is impossible to do professional work with , i dont know, sounds like "f** off our dear Nikon client we just couldn't care less about what you do with our cameras."

I wonder if anyone in there in the Nikon mess has tried to use professionally this counter-productive software before literally shove it to our faces. To have to work on hundreds of wedding images ASAP and wait for the damn thing for eternity to refresh a setting changed, on a perfectly powerful PC???

Really Nikon ? Are you f*** serious?

And its SO easy: just issue firmwares that make the new nefs CNX2 compatible. Period.

In reply to:

mmr: I'm considering moving away from my sigma dp2q to either a fuji xt-1 or a 7200; is it possible to add any of the sigmas (even the Merrill) to this tool?

On a similar note, how do I choose which lens is on the body?

the DX bodies are shot with the 50 1.4, the FX bodies are shot with the 85 1.4

Hugo808: Is it just me or is the D7200 clearly superior to the D750?

It is just you. Check again, but RAW, not JPG, especially @ at least 400 ISO

D7200 raw looks exactly 100% the same as D7100 to me

Sigma UK says on their site that 150-600 C Nikon mount will be available in May. Now what is more likely? March or May?

justmeMN: In addition, on their D7100, didn't Nikon have problems with oil splattering on their sensors? Strange...

My D7100 though has the exact D600 issue

On article DPReview Top Picks: Stand-out third party lenses (85 comments in total)

I hope this version of the 120-300 is issues-free. I got the previous version after much praising and encouragement from the webs, little i knew, i should had researched more on the failure rates since theres no testing - renting option where i live. Now i know but its too late that version has high issues statistics no surprise you can find it half the price of the "S" version. If you get a working sample great, if not .... i am on a sex ride with Sgma of three countries since April ... the lens just hasn't been able to be worth to get with me on the field once yet.

rallyfan: Except this "protest issue" isn't relevant.

Newspapers aren't going to start printing issues without photographs.

They're going to start printing issues without photographs from "photographers" and "photojournalists."

The argument whether "anybody can take that picture!" is moot. We will soon enough see whether anybody (a) can and (b) will "take that picture."

The answers will invariably be "yes" and "yes" to those questions.

Bye!

as for designers, true designers are the ones who are profiting right now and they are sought after. It is a time that clearing up in the market occurs , competition is real and solutions to the challenges deriving from the financial situation can be given only from people truly qualified

as everybody elses, the payments of every professional might and is become a subject of flexible adaptation, a photojournalist should be called to work for more clients or reduce somehow his prices etc but that would be all

i dont think also, on a different level, that is a functional attitude to act in an introvert / phobic way, "don"t get that, don't get this, don't need that, etc sustaining a self absorbing black hole in the market chains (less demand, less research, less production, less innovation, less jobs etc) that will lead to a total collapse eventually

in today's declining markets the only businesses surviving and will be the ones standing are the ones investing in professionalism, specialization, expertise. Neither wedding photography, nor photojournalism, or whatever kind of photography can be replaced by smartphones for at least various technical reasons alone. A snapshot is good and worth of doing the job under certain circumstances while in countless others more theres no way it can deliver. Are you going to stick your neck for example to get a picture from a hazardous situation only to find out that your ....smartphone cannot reach the event 100 meters away that no amount of tiny megapixels can save the day or you have no clue how to deal with light and come back with a burned or soak in dark out of of focus mud of a useless image ? The list goes on

as much as everyone is a graphic designer since they can install illustrator in their laptop. Or web developer because wixx exists. not happening. washington sun directors are plainly ignorant cowbillies and they will simply fall in the brainless pit they dug

On article Tamron to develop 150-600mm F5-6.3 ultra-telephoto zoom (193 comments in total)
In reply to:

Prognathous: Going by Tamron's recent pricing logic (see their new 70-200/2.8), the likely price for this lens is going to be $3000. Why 3 times the price of the current 200-500? Because of the the added stabilization and range.

if i am asked to pay 3000 for a lens of a similar class to sigma 150-500 (~900?) then i rather save it for a used Brand glass
