On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1055 comments in total)
In reply to:

3systermuser: read DXO mark on this one, you will see the IQ is the same or extremely similar to that of the D800E.
and considering the price difference between the D810 and the D800E, there is no point getting it if you do not need a touch better AF, a bit better LV,etc over the D800E.
I think this is what D800E should have been, but it is now already dated even at this point, Nikon should focus its very limited R and D money onto FX mirrorless.
for me , the Sony A7R wins over all this extremely old dated D-SLR.

I've been shooting 1000 photos over three days on just one battery, and I never turned my camera off.

Who's dated now?

Yep. Weaker AA filter

Neither camera looks really good in that specific use case.

Is it me or is the white balance looking much better?

InTheMist: Review coming soon? /wink

My local shop canceled on me and therefore my preorder wasn't in time for the first shipment. Switzerland is sold out!

Df? Amazing, nostalgic, every-day, fun camera. They could have thought about the controls a bit more and the smallish focusing system irritates me at that price.

My Df is just fun, while my D800 is for special occasions and work, but I still don't trust the focus and wish I had gone with the "E" originally. I also do sports from time to time, so the 6 FPS (my personal sweet spot for the sports that I shoot) is my reason for upgrading.

Still waiting though on D810 availability here. Sold out!

As I'm reading books full of images by Saul Leiter, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Vivian Maier and the likes, I wonder if my images will be rediscovered in 100 years and be more popular then.

What is it about old images that fascinates?

Fantastic collection.

hrt: What would Nikon be offering two years from now ?

@Lucas_ That don't suck batteries and aren't dog slow, can track focus on moving targets and can be used with all my existing glass? Then, I'm in!

On A look at the Lomography Petzval 85mm F2.2 lens article (156 comments in total)

I quite enjoyed the contrasting reviews. Refreshing!

For me, it's intellectual interest, because I relate more with Mr. Westlake's evaluation. I enjoyed Ms. Patton's hands-on a lot, though.

Gosman: I love this article and seems to come out of my own mouth. Indeed I'm the one on the Nikon forum that pinned the name "Guinea Pigs" upon the early adaptors of the D800. I urged everyone to wait. What I didn't know was that it would take Nikon 2 years to upgrade and make the must needed changes. It is a huge lesson to all of us about product life cycles. This is why I decided to stay with Pentax and the K-3 which is now at the height of the crop sensor life cycle. I decided to stay away from full frame for awhile and see where the product cycle takes it along with the mirror less cameras. And yes, I am a Kodachrome baby and it is the first thing I thought of when I saw the ISO (we called it ASA) was 64!

Pentax spam.

I agree too.

Edit: Frankly, I wonder if it's paid advertising by Pentax. "Pentax" should be filtered as spam. It's embarrassing how every thread eventually has 20% of the posts talking about Pentax, and how Pentax is better and how Pentax does it right, and Pentax, Pentax, PENTAX!

Talk to their marketing department. If the cameras are that good, they should be the market leader.

Please stop crapping our threads.

digiart: Four articles in just two days about a camera that is a small improvement on a previous model! No wonder CANIKON own the DSLR market ;)

I'd actually like two more:
- Hands-on
- Scene tests

Pretty interesting info here, and commentary as it Thom's style.

It's so rare that one has an innovative idea.

I like it!

In reply to:

Richard Murdey: I don't feel concept of "early adopter" even holds true with dSLRs. Every new model is always better than the old one. Your only choice, given how the price drops over time, is when to buy it, and the only gamble/risk is whether you are going to be getting a camera that will be replaced with a new model in four years (D700), two years (D800), or just one (D600).

Not only the D600. Also D800 (and reportedly D4) left focus issue, SB-900 overheating, extensive back-focus issues reported (and confirmed by me) on D7000 and D800.

On Apple to cease development of Aperture article (423 comments in total)
In reply to:

greencurry: I'm concerned that Apple's infatuation with the aery faery "Cloud" (cue divine trumpets and chorus of angels) will result in this new app being unable to organize large libraries of photos on my own drives. Will it be able to handle hundreds of GBs and tens of thousands of photos? If so, and with the same editing abilities available, perhaps in the form of Aperture-like "bricks" that the advanced user adds on and the recreational user never sees, I'll be good. If not Lightroom 6 will probably be showing up about when the last Aperture update starts getting really stale.

Come over to Lightroom.

That said, I would be outraged if my daily workflow software was canceled. I feel your pain.
