TwoMetreBill: OK, it's cute and small. Does it come with a pill we can take to shrink our hands so we can operate it or is it just another piece of jewelry?

As far I can see it is not smaller than my A7RII without a grip. I have big hands and can use it without problems.

kingslayer: $9000? lol. If this thing was priced around $3500, it would sell very well.

You get what you pay for. You won't get a Porsche for the price of a Prius.

Hahaha, that was really a good one :)

As far as I like my A7RII, it is not Medium format

razadaz: I was using Photoshop long before digital cameras became a realistic option. It was part of a graphic set of applications, and much of its use was for graphics. This is still the case. Many photographers tend to think it was developed for photographic use because it has the word photo in it. Many of its current upgrade features are font handling abilities and features that will be of no use to your average photographer. As such it may lose a market share to photographers in the future but its main corporate market will remain untouched because there is no application that covers its scope of uses and abilities. I hate the way it has gone now and will use Affinity in the future, but also realise why it will continue to dominate the market.

Can you give your Affinity layers to an agency who work with Photoshop? And can they import the layers into Photoshop?

TheDman: Any time Adobe is in the news I come straight to the comments here to watch all the teeth gnashing over three subscription. Can't believe this is still going on years later.

True! But sometimes entertaining. Anytime when Adobe, Leica or Hasselblad is on the news board, they are coming out of their holes. :)

CameraLabTester: Marketing Lesson for Hasselblad:

Entice and tease the the public when you are well respected and well regarded.

When you have lost all credibility in announcing new products, you will only invite hecklers and scoffers...

Like what is happening now, in this forum.

Wow! So much hate in a few lines? Ever worked with a Hassy? I bet no. I did. If you feel so much hate about Hassy, why do you care anyway? Shoot your lil Fuji and be happy and let the pros decide what they want.

armandino: This New Standard gets a pretty lame score on DXO...

Only pixelpeepers, brickwallshooters and gearheads look at DXO. Professionals do not care about measurebating, they are generating money with their tools.

Thematic: Well over 50 Full Frame E-mount lenses available now. Impressive in such a short time how much support Sony is getting from various manufacturers as they grow their Alpha brand.

I don't use peaking on my A7R and A7RII, because it is often inaccurate, especially when shooting people. I use focus magnifier which works well. I use manual focus when I record video. For fast accurate AF, I use my DSLRs.

Alex Velasco: Many people seemed to have missed this:

ABOVE 1600 ISO, the NIKON D5 has the HIGHEST DYNAMIC RANGE of any Nikon tested by DXO (capitals used for clarity.) The Nikon D5 enjoys 0.5 to 1 stop EXTRA dynamic range at higher than 1600 ISO sensitivity than the D4, which was the previous best Nikon tested.

Is that clear?

I wouldn't take this DXO thingy too serious anyway.

Dylthedog: I'd be interested to know why the move from Canon in 2008. Today I could perfectly understand it, but back then the current state was about 180 in the other direction.

Honest question, idle curiosity only.

It was the Mark III who had this AF Problems. And yes some Press Agencies switched to Nikon, but I dunno how it is today.

TonyTguy: Not that I'm a canon user but they should review the canon 1dx ii along with the D5 for a high level comparison

AFAIK they work on it.

I did the same move in early 2008 from Canon to Nikon D3 (and later added a D3X to it) . For me the ISO capability of the D3 was unmatched this time and I liked the fact to bring back highlights so easily. My Canons couldn't do that. Second you forgot the big AF problem the 1D Mark III had. Today I work with a 1DX, but the D5 is very tempting.

SanPedro: You want a landscape camera with amazing DR and lotsa pixels buy a D810. If you're a pap or a sports photographer or a concert photographer or a photo journalist or even a wedding photographer, you will most likely love this camera. Who gives a monkeys if base ISO is not up to par with other cameras... this is all about the night isn't it? And speed. This is for the paps getting shots of celebs falling out of a bar at 2am, wasted, and nailing the shot, or the last gasp touchdown in a night game, or that iconic shot in the middle of a warzone. It's not for me, to be sure, but for those that need a camera to be bulletproof (perhaps literally) it will do any job asked of it I'm sure.

Sometimes a book "How do I improve my skills in photography" are a better and cheaper solution than a expensive 12 fps "portrait" camera. It won't give you that skills. If you have talent and passion, a simple D300 or 7D does the job. I do not understand this DR fetish. No I don't.

In reply to:

GabrielZ: I was disappointed when I first heard of the low base ISO dynamic range of this camera's new FF sensor, I thought it would have the highest DR of any current FF sensor available as Nikon's are usually very good in that department. Personally I'm much more excited by the D500 than the D5.

They are class leading where it matters. When you look at the pros from this review, anything whats on the left from the conclusion is, what buyers from a D5 need. DR is still good enough. My 1DX is good in pulling up shadows, but not very good in bringing back highlights. My D4 was they way around. Any Nikon I had was not very good in pulling up shadows (got noisy), but excellent in bringing back highlights. I expose different with my Nikons and different with my 1DX and even with my A7RII.
I wished my D4 or 1DX could be better on very high ISO, for shooting at concerts for example, where sometimes I have to go at 25600 to shoot with a higher shutterspeed. When the singer or guitarplayer jumps around the stage in dim light. The D5 can do it brilliantly and I think the 1DXII too.
