turvyT: D750 looks wonderful until you compare it in lab test section with Pentax 645z. Then, image quality wise, D750 looks just like one more of the pack. I know that IQ only doesn't say much about usability, but the difference is impressive.
@turvyT Who said that D750's image quality is better than MF? But honestly, it's really close to my eyes and I wouldn't say it's in a another league! It's like comparing D810 to RX100! Anyway, enjoy your 645z. I am sure it's a great camera!
I went to the lab and compared the 2 cameras for ISO 100 and 800. Actually, for the money you pay and portability, I think the D750 wins hands down!
I am not sure if it's accurate to say "beginner participants" because they never won a DPreview challenge! Not everyone submits here!
Rick_Hunter: This is a gearheads gathering place. You can put out any, really, any camera you want, but if it doesn't have at least a GAZILLION megapixels, and UMPTEENTH stops of DR, and a FEMTOsecond top shutter speed, etc, people here will always complain because they can't possibly take proper images of their cat, or of their lensalign ruler. Infact, how could they live with such an inferior camera? Bottom line, most gearheads here wil ALWAYS see only the empty part of the glass, even when the glass is >90% full.Just give up already...
@Argent22 Totally agree!@Rick_Hunter. What kind of a camera do you use?
mpgxsvcd: Canon still thinks they use better sensors.
You do know that Nikon, Sony, Fuji, Panasonic and Olympus are all Japanese!!
jonrobertp: Dpr continues to slide downhill with its ratings. Credibility? Keep looking.
@jonrobertp That's just rude!
Thank you, DPR staff. I've been really liking your new work lately.
TN Args: Hideous!
This is the first camera to touch 90% at DPreview, ever! I think!
"Mushy 8-way controller on rear"! Not compared to the Fuji X-T1 :-)
Wesley Byrne: I was kind of bummed about the max 1/4000 shutter speed, until I looked at my lightroom catalog and found that I have only taken 62 photos at speeds greater than 1/4000 in the last year. The flash sync limit of 1/200s is slower than I am used to, but I am sure that is okay too.
If my past is any indication, I will end up purchasing a D750 sometime in 2017 if I buy it at all. I think I'd be happier with a D810, for more than just those 62 photos/yr with ss above 1/4000.
2017? Wow? People are sure different!
nblaney: Is there some reason that the brand on all the totally obviously identifiable items in this are covered with gaff tape? I SORT of get it with street photography but what's the motivation here?
You mean "Apple"? ;-)
snapa: Is that the best you can do is to put out a 15 minute video on the XT-1? How many people are interested in THAT camera? There must be some other interesting cameras that could be chronicled that more people are interested in :/
That camera is old news and the percentage of people who own it and/or are interested in it is minuscule. Please try to keep up with more current cameras that people are actually interested in, thank you.
With that logic, DPR will only review Canon or Nikon!
nerd2: XT-1 is nice and all but I think it's still seriously overpriced. Should be similar to a6000 ($700-800 range at most) considering it only has 16MP APS sensor and lacks IBIS.
How much would you pay for Sony A7S? It has 12mp!
Another great review! I have the X-T1 and it's good to see it in fashion shoot like this.
Fox Fisher: it's 2014 and they still make cameras without wi-fi. unbelievable. Canon loves to sit on it's ancient system and count its money. I think they lost their pace to Panasonic, Sony, Fuji, Olympus. These are the companies that are making some exciting products in the last 2 years. On the otherhand Canon & Nikon is all about same stuff a bit polished approach.
And what do you think of D750 or D5300? They have WiFi!
cjep1: 10 of 12 uses Sony sensors. Impressive!
12 out of 12 use plastic. How impressive for "plastic makers"!!!
photogeek: How times have changed. Sony completely dominates the list.
@photo geek How exactly? The top 2 are Nikon's Unless you just count number of cameras.I think Canon is selling more D5DMIII than all Sony cameras combined!
halfwaythere: Its pretty sad that even dpr has succumbed to the " low ISO dynamic range matters above all" theory.
I think most enthusiast FF users are using these bodies for their low light, high ISO, superiority. I don't get how is the A7 recommended above the 6D since the latter has access to the most comprehensive system while the former is, basically, a cheap mirrorless camera that happens to have a FF sensor.
@ttran88 Would would some people think that there is a conspiracy against Sony's mirrorsless? Do you think DPR/Amazon cares if people people buy Sony, Nikon or Canon as long they buy through them? Unless there is a better profit margin for them, of course!
Zeisschen: Too much happened in the last 12 months at Sony, not even DPreview can catch up with testing all their latest cameras properly...
Next years round up its Sony alone in all categories if the competition keeps sleeping ;)
@Zeisschen Did you miss the 2 best cameras on the list?
