That is one aspect of the D500 that is disappointing. While I did my research, and knew that Snapbridge and D500 connectivity wouldn't be available until after the Summer, for iOS, the apple logo is all over the D500 box and in the manual. I also understand that The Snapbridge App isn't much better than the WMAU app that is available for the D750 and other models. It is primitive at best.
Even if we allow for changes in technology, I do not understand how the Sony with an 82 score from DPR was rated best, while the Nikon D610 with a 87 score wasn't even rated in the top 3. Actually I do understand. The top three are mirrorless. I am guessing that DPR (amazon) sees more potential in selling that type of camera, as opposed to the "old and tired" DSLR.
Congratulations to all the winners! Just one little niggle about the article: headline reads "Canon sweeps DSLR categories" But the D5500 (Nikon), won the consumer DSLR catagory. So, while Canon did very well this year, you can't call it a sweep.
Rich Rosen: From its looks, it totally contradicts "smaller is better." It has very similar lines to the PENTAX 67. The pictures in this article, don't give us an idea of size compared to other full frame cameras or even current Pentax DSLR's.
Ok. I'll defer to those who know Pentax, better than I do.

Ordered the V3 in early June. I had questions about it, but liked the compactness and the US Nikon offer of including the lens adapter in the package. But then Nikon announced two things: the D810, and admitting that the V3 was delayed in production. I canceled the V3 order, and ordered the D810, which I will get tomorrow.
Philip Peynerdjiev: Canon MKIII is perfect for JPEG's shooting, in RAW Nikon is king.
The camera is very capable of handling sports. I use it for high school football. Its burst rate is more than adequate for this sport. My use of jpegs or raw is dependent on the situation.
Why is this article even on DPR? It must be the green the site is getting to promote this stuff.
