D1N0: The GH4 has one quarter the sensor size. It is obvious who wins.

It is obvious. It is also obvious who is on the defence.

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1531 comments in total)
In reply to:

AllOtherNamesTaken: All that and not a word about autofocus, perhaps the D810's most significant improvement? Did I miss something?

You'll have to wait on the "performance" chapter of the review. Dpreview tends to discuss AF there.

you missed the fact that the review is not finished yet. It is still a preview.

The Moiré issue depends on pixel size in relation to pattern size and focal length plus distance. Hence you can work around it when it becomes an issue.

D1N0: Great but it is easier to buy a Pentax 645z $8500 with the same sensor. With a $50 adapter you can even use your Hassie lenses on it.

Leaf shutters only matter to people who want to make ugly frozen photo's in broad daylight. It's über kitsch.

On Ricoh announces Pentax K-3 Prestige Edition article (165 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marty4650: Ricoh clearly lacks the vision needed to cash in on commemorative editions.

They bundle a $1,000 camera with a $215 battery grip, and two Pentax batteries worth another $100, and then give the whole package a stunning finish. Then they sell this gorgeous $1,315 bundle for only $1,399!

That's right. A lousy $84 more than an off the shelf regular version.

Hassleblad would have given it an exotic wood grip, named it "The Constellation Edition" and sold it for $9,000.

Leica would have sold this for $20,000, or roughly a $10,000 premium over their usual price, and had a waiting list for it.

But Ricoh only tacks on 84 bucks!

(Seriously, this is a great deal. If I was in the market for a K3, I'd order one of these special editions immediately.)

It is smart marketing. Customers don't feel ripped of and you get free advertising because the news starved internet sites will all write about it. Costs a lot less than advertising and has more impact.

Galbertson: Had D810 in hand at camera shop. The Nikon rep was there stating only new lenses will resove best the 36mp sensor, whereas i had read my pro AI lenses would still resolve just fine

Has anyone done crital comparison tests? Some blogs say great, some say poor. Cannot afford to buy camera to find out have to shell out thousands more for lenses.

Nonsense it depends on the lens, not on the era. Modern coatings may give more microcontrast, but you can ad that in post (and thus keep control over it)

In reply to:

D1N0: For the price you could get a Nikon D5200 bundled with a Tamron 18-270 Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD The Nikon's body is even more compact than this one.

Because the package is about as big. The lens is larger but the body smaller. 18-270 is 27-405 equivalent and you can get some more lenses which you will be able to take with you when you upgrade your camera or when it breaks down out of warranty. A bridge will become a worthless piece of junk once it breaks down.
