On Nikon unveils 24.1MP D5200 DSLR with optional Wi-Fi article (392 comments in total)

Nikon just wants to make extra bucks selling the lame WiFi module as an option. I hate the way it attaches. It should have been built in already!

Mike99999: It seems that this D5200 might have a new 24mp (Sony) sensor, different from the D3200.

If this is true, this might be the first appearance of the APS-C sized Sony sensor with the same tech as the OM-D sensor. If this is true, the performance of this camera is going to be off the charts.

DxOMark....LOL

Why is the 24-70/4 IS much more expensive than 24-105/4 IS? The new zoom better be as good as the best primes! But then it's still f/4...

I expected more 'bite' from a $2800 fixed lens camera. Seems like strong NR here, if not AA filter. The lens has excellent CA performance.

Samsung... they know how to make a gadget with a pile of features... but that's it, just gadget. My Galaxy Note with its yellowish display and bad ergonomics is a proof to that...LOL

On Nikon D600 Hands-on Preview preview (713 comments in total)

If compared to 5D2, D600 looks softer - BUT D600 has excellent high ISO!

Phileas Fogg: Those here who troll to bash Leica have likely never shot a Leica camera. Many probably do not know how to shoot photography other than "P" for perfect mode anyways. They likely will never be able to afford one as they fail to grasp the value of what decades of Leica quality and manufacturing have brought.

The bashers only see what Leica does not give you as compared to the more typical and often gimmick loaded DSLR's or other digital cameras. The absence of some of these things and gimmicks is what makes a Leica endearing to true photographic shooters.

These bashers have likely never shot a true rangefinder let alone a Leica be it a 35mm film body or a digital. They are folks that would not understand the value of prestige and what superlative manufacturing quality brings.

No I do not own a Leica never have shot one but if I had the disposable cash at hand to buy a Leica M series I would and both a film body as well as the digital one here.

LOL no need for that...

Even worse, the bashers never got to see the results or what the M9 and leica lenses can do. Sure high iso is not as good as CMOS, but at base iso, nothing is even close.

JEROME NOLAS: I don't have Leica and probably never have one, but still don't understand all that complaints...there are million things on this planet that are million times more expensive...if you complain it's not for you, if you have money to spend I am sure you love it!

Well said.

It's basically an M9, but funnily enough, just put on a 'cheap' 28 Elmarit, and no DSLR system in the market could even match the image quality at low ISO. Sure the price is still too high but it has a good sensor.

Finally! Let's see how soon it will be available! Though hopefully the CCD look can be retained with this new sensor...

FTW: I ow a D40, D200, Fuji S5 and a NEX-7, among other dusty things in my shelves and, if I compare, there is really nothing to be exited about. So, in exception of a lot of noise and a waste of money this D600, sames as Alpha 99 will not make your day, as I can find out by myself. I downed other samples form other sites, including Nikon, there was nothing that made my wallet jump out of my pocket. I am not religious, i compare what is comparable.

FTW means even if he wanted to invest, those D600 samples did not impress him. You should take a reading class before commenting...

Hahaha JPG does not equal flat images! you just made yourself sound *bleep*

Hopefully the QC is not Sigma's hit and miss style. I would like to know if the multi-coating does the job taming those 23 elements esp against bright light sources.

IQ must be good, but at $2800 it will also serve very well as a neck hanger...sort of cheaper version of M9
