techmine: I have no GAS any more - Gear Acquisition Syndrome :-)
Me too. I'm overstuffed with kit. Plus, I'm fat.
Smartypants: I've been planning on buying the Nikon 14-24 for awhile but have waited for two reasons, first the filter issue (I have a big investment in 49,55,72,67,77 filters) and have been avoiding lenses that require me buying a Lee system.The other is that the fabulous Nikon is getting just a little old.It's been my experience that todays sensors and digital in general can show the faults even in the finest lenses and every lens supplier is rushing to design new optics for what I see as the coming 50MP+ world.I'm eager to purchase a zoom in this range and can't wait to see the rumored sigma (I own both the 35 and 50 Art lenses) before I open my wallet.
Yes, 50MP is on the move. I reckon.
Karl Summers: Nice to see the 5DIII still in the top ten, even after a couple years on the market.
Let's avoid low forms of language.
barri: I like many of the camera tests on dpreview. But these real-world samples look quite non-appealing and random. Was this camera given here to a person that does not know about photography?
Actually, some of these compositions are very handsome, like DSC01925, DSC01450, DSC02357, and DSC02020.
GRUBERND: i have to object to the testing methodology of using in-camera imagestabilization to test the capability of an lens. because any detail can or can not be affected by the IBIS and no one will ever know. you tested a lens-camera-combination.
of course IBIS doesnt affect flares and overall look, but looking at the full size images is worthless especially since the use or not use or amount of ibis in each image is not mentioned.
You are making the case for tripod shooting -- which I advocate -- for the purpose of assessing IQ. But that rules out real-world shooting.
No viewfinder? So near, yet so far.
(Warning. This is a vinegary post.)
It's hard to pronounce on IQ without a more systematic roster of images. Even though the gallery is real-world, one could take images that assist more positively in assessing IQ.
There. That wasn't so bad. Does one agree?
dash2k8: Outsell? I actually believe it. Mirrorless will be more appealing to the masses. Ma's and pa's looking for simple family photos will prefer the smaller, lighter and more portable options. And honestly, mirrorless is closing the performance gap to make it good enough for most consumers. Pros will never outnumber amateurs so I don't see why people don't think mirrorless will outsell DSLRs. I also don't understand why ppl are upset at this eventuality.
I understand that mirrorless cameras (potentially) offer two advantages over DSLRs -- (1) lenses, no longer needing to be retrofocus designs, can be better or cheaper, and (2) mirror slap cannot add to image degradation. You might also add a third advantage -- no noisy mirrors.
irm: What is wrong with Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, after all it is a holiday to celebrate the birth of Christ, not just have a holiday.
And? So? Nu?
Richt2000: Why can't American websites dare say "happy Christmas"?When its Holi people say happy Holi, when its Eid, people say Eid Mubarak, so we can't people say Happy Christmas?
Keep atheism out of DPReview. Booze news is OK though.
Murilo Gomes NT: It's just unbelievable that some people can complain even about a happy holidays post.
Anyway, happy holidays everyone! And guys, like someone have already said, it would be nice seeing some more lens reviews, if possible.
Want to know why civilization is going down to collapse and defeat? It's the iniquity and discord.
This will become much clearer in five or ten years.
Have a happy 12 nights of Christmas.
sandy b: Good articles here:
Bottom line? others do it too, perhaps not as, but the shots are still ruined.
Still a gold camera.
Thanks for the feedback.
A very happy 12 nights to you.
The bands of darkness that occur with the D750 is a serious enough problem to require a response from Nikon. Are photographers supposed to accept technological regression?
lera ion: Awarded posthumously!
Maybe he meant "prehumously."
James Bligh: I cannot find a word about internal reflection and shutter shock issues of D750 in this review. Please point me to it if I missed it. When dpreview never even mentions (not to say evaluate) the issues, you can no longer say dpreview review is a comprehensive review which I think is a shame. Once renowned for its objective reviews and a comprehensive source of information about camera gears I am afraid dpreview has fallen into the realm of mediocrity many review sites share. The present generation of dpreview staffs may have wasted their talent and ruined the reputation of dpreview. Phil Askey will lament over it seeing the prestige he has built up tainted.
@ helltormentorArgh, that flashing you're getting when shooting contre jour is awful. That is good reason to be annoyed.
Can you mitigate the effect with lens hoods?
davids8560: I would like to own this camera, and also some very nice lenses to go with it, too.
Yep, me too.
Wish it had more pixels, though.
TrollFree: is this going to be any good for landscapes and seascapes?
Fanboys? Hey, guy, I'm just passing the time of day. Angling for laughs, you know?
Tilted Plane: A pretty careful avoidance of Nikon (or Sony) comparisons, overall. Too bad. Head-to-head comparisons are really (!) helpful. Does this hold up next to a D750? Or even the D610? Or the similarly priced A7II? If so, when, where, under what shooting conditions?
How many enthusiasts care much for high frame rates? 10%? 40%? Does anyone have a feel for this?
