beemerman2k: Great article and very important perspective. Photographers often say, "it's not the tool, it's the photographer", then we turn around and mortgage our future on the latest and the greatest. I see perfectly fine D600's, D610's, 5D Mk II's, and other amazing hardware being sold off as scrap because a later, allegedly greater, tool is on the market. If a D750 or a D810 offers a critical property, then fine. Otherwise, it's a waste of money and time.
I think that for 99% of all pictures taken, a D600--let alone a D610!--is more than up to the job.
Nice; but I like 4 wheels, don't ask why :)
Correct . But.... if you like shooting video or macro, a D750's tiltable screen is extremely useful. You don't know how much until you get one and start using it... I know, get a D5300 if you like video and articulated screens, but now you can have your cake and eat it too.. just sayin.And I have a beemer too (had several :) ).
Smeggypants: One of the world's most extreme acts of terrorism. We should never forget so that such a repulsive act never happens again!!!
Terrorism ? They were at war with the US ?
That is not God, that is a lightning strike.
Timothy Stark: This camera isn't about photos. It is a "lifestyle" product. I'll bet few readers, even fewer commentors on DPR own any recent Bang & Olafson gear. I believe B&O was once leading edge. Now its a (very) upmarket Bose.
If you have corporate currency such as Nikon's history, you'd better cash in; or your competitor will. If the CEO doesn't the board will fire his butt out the door. Nikon has the currency. BMW has the currency. You cant buy a true low end BMW in North America. BMW's management doesn't give a hoot for the guys who drove 2002's back in the day. Now a performance BMW has 500+ H.P. to move its almost 2400 kg bulk.
This Nikon fits the same niche as small wall-mounted speakers; most BMWs and iPhones. I won't buy any of this stuff, but a lot of people do.
I take pictures with a 5D w/ Contax lenses, drive a 1989 944 s2 (supercharged and intercooled), and listen to vinyl with a tube pre-amp & old Castle speakers. I'm not a lifestyle guy, but that market is big and growing.
Hehe, you are just plain old , nothing wrong with that :)
