SGal23: Strange, but lens are not impressive. Blurry edges, not so sharp as i would expect from Nikon. So do we rally need 2K lens which perform like cheap plactics? Somehow disapointed with it. I would be wrong as it depends on photog's hands ;)

Sean65: I see the photographic community have been hit quite hard by the 5 Star review culture. Are people unable to make their own decisions these day and rely completely on journalists to tell them what to buy?

No, they rely on silly X vs Y vs Z vs "imaginary new release" threads in forums. ;)

WGVanDyck: Please understand; I am a huge fan of DPR. DPR is my first stop for news and I have very high regard for their staff. But, two years between the introduction of a camera (2014) and the publication of its review? The first sentence of the review says it was two years between the D800 and the introduction of the D810, so it strikes me that the D810 review may be out just in time for the release of a new D820.

D810 successor is a good year away from release, going by Nikon's (roughly) 3 year DSLR body product cycle. Besides, there are other sources for reviews, if DPR isn't timely enough for you. More things to be concerned about in this world than how DPR schedules its reviews.

I don't know what's more entertaining on DPR: the product comments or the Fuji X Forum

martystcross: Hi All, I shot concert photography and some of the venues have poor lighting. I shoot on a canon 7D and the images suffer past iso1600. Lightroom helps a bit but not much. Native iso for d810 is 6400. Does anyone know if I will have the same issues if I switch to the d810? I like the features on the d810 but if the camera can't handle low light, i may have to look elsewhere. Can anyone comment?

If you want superior performance in poor light go with a D750

Phathom: I think it's pretty unfair to compare the D810 to newer cameras at this point. This overall conclusion should reflect what the camera was like in comparison to the rest of it's competitors a few years ago. At that point it was revolutionary and outstanding. Everyone else was playing catch up. Just because it took nearly two years for your review that shouldn't influence the overall results.

Give it gold, and people still complain. So DPR.

Jorginho: So G7 and GX8 hang for shuttershock. Because otherwise they were just stellar in their class. Silver. Both have workarounds, but alas....

Nikon has shuttershock too with workarounds. Yet it gets cold. While I understand we cannot just compare one cam over another it is clear shuttershock has caused the Panny's to get silver. Wonder how Nikon gets away with this...

Maybe because the D810 is a superior camera to those Pannys? Fanboi.

PNad: whats up with all these mirrorless posts? Oh yeah such ancient tech, a dslr lololoolol

Im sure you will see plenty of pro photographers shooting the upcoming olympics with mirrorless.

And don't forget battery power, and how mirrorless simply cannot compete against DSLRs. It's pathetic.

Daniel Bliss: This is a nice feature, but I hope Nikon doesn't slip up with another critical determinant of AF performance -- mirror alignment. There was evidence at least from my point of view of this problem creeping in all through the 2000s, and it affected both my D7000 bodies and judging by forum posts, tens of thousands if not even six figures overall. The most depressing manifestation of this was my D200 clearly backfocusing under incandescent compared to normal focusing under sunlight, while a Fuji S5 Pro (for newbies, this was camera with Fuji imaging sensor and processing but Nikon D200 kit for everything else) I rented was spot-on perfect.

ooooh but but but... filters degrade image quality.... ooh ooh baaaaad filters ;)

davev8: wonder if sigma will do a 75-150 F2 FF lens...if it had no focus breathing it will be a better portrait lens than the nikon 70-200 f2.8

Oh brother. How misinformed.

ThorstenMUC: Strange, they only release this for e-Mount... should not be that much extra effort, to also implement it for Fujifilm X-mount.

Is Fujifilm claiming so much money for the X-Mount license?

well, this DPR, the "chicken little" of photo gear forums. What did you expect? ;)

But if only you know what you're talking about...

John McCormack: I assume the Nik collection of tools will not run as a standalone application, right?

They can also run on Aperture as well

TwoMetreBill: As Hassy lenses are made by Fuji, at least some of them, a few bucks can be saved by picking up the same quality in the X-mount.

haha this is funny

In reply to:

raztec: Pardon my ignorance, but what can these cameras and lens combination do that a Nikon D810 with a pro lens can't for 1/4 the price?

I don't know of any leaf shuttered lenses that can fit a D810.
These cameras are not for your average DPR cat-or-landscape shooting enthusiast, more like long established commercial pros or six-figure wedding photographers.

Tower: Made in West Germany is Carl Zeiss, made in Japan is Fuji. Are those new product better then the Pentax even? No, I don't think so! Its way cost too much. I am H owner for 30 years. I STILL like old lens rather new one, particular the deadly skin tone. More budget new digital back can help company make money not funny colour Fuji!

"West Germany" LOL

Dude, Cold War ended 25 years ago

Meady: I'm trying to decide between the D610 and the Canon 6d as my first full frame camera specifically for low light gig photography. Any recommendations please?

I don't care what kind of camera you have, F22 will expose any dust or oil or whatever is on the sensor.
