  • I wait 6 months minimum. First I don't want to be a beta tester, second there'll be new fw to improve things most likely, third prices will ease and/or supply will improve after demand drops. Nikon...

  • 15 stops of DR and 0 stops of QC. Thanks Nikon for getting the priorities sorted.

  • Crazy generous score. The photo IQ is simply second rate at any thing other than viewing it on the phone itself. I'm sure it's a relative score and only compared to other phones but the score is...

  • I can't believe we cater to those people.

  • Not sure how it's $200 more than a5000. It's a simple evolution with a few added features. Price is crazy close to a6000, which due to in-built EVF alone, remains far better choice. It's not even...

  • It's still amazing to see how Carbon fiber is still treated like some super exotic material that needs to be priced accordingly. I have a firend who works with Carbon fiber that says it only costs...

  • Alas, when I was at Jökulsárlón last year, it was raining and the wrong time of year for the northern lights. Definitely would love to go back in March or September and pray for good weather....

  • Then look at the LG G3, 5.5" screen and otherwise very similar specs.

  • I hope you like being disappointed. You will not see 4K video in a Canon consumer DSLR for a long time. Canon says only 10% of people by DSLR for video features. They want you to buy a Cinema...

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    Yes indeed, quite noticeably so, compared to 5D III which is sharp corner to corner. I was wondering if they should try another lens or copy.

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    D810 and D4s are clearly using more NR in jpg and at the same time using more sharpening, than the D800E and D4. D810 only looks to have improved chroma noise. If you shoot RAW you will be hard...

  • Nor do they care about you telling people they don't care about you telling people they don't care.

    Maybe you need to adjust your reality distortion field and check the DSLR sales vs mirrorless...

  • So you want slow kit lenses that dominate other manufacturers lin-ups. IMO if you buy into a system like the Fuji, it's not as a backup for a FF DSLR it's as a long term replacement. Fuji is...

  • That's nice, but they could care even less about you leaving as do the rest of us.

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    The A7R sensor must be different as the D810 sensor has native ISO 64 and larger well capacity, it might only be a small difference, but they could not have done that on the A7R sensor. Also DxO...

    Sorry Daviddgf that you are flipping burgers for a career, but no need to take it out on others. I'm sure you'd love to do research, if you knew what it meant.

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    Only D800 owners with more money than sense would rush out to upgrade. If you seriously think the small differences will improve your photography you need a new hobby.

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    The only improvement I can see (and I'm talking only RAW) is that at high ISO the D810 has less chroma noise, otherwise they are so close as to not matter, at any ISO. Clearly Sony won't be getting...

  • The point which was obvious has nothing to do with the price of the cameras. It's just showing that these all-in-one superzoom lenses still are a long way behind even entry level lenses on IL...

  • The FZ1000 lens is soft on the LHS of the test scene and the RX10 on the RHS of the test scene making comparisons hard except in the very middle. Both lenses are mediocre in image quality. Compare...
