They should partner with Hasselblad and design a wooden grip!
Without that they have not eaven the slightest chance to sell one unit.

jtan163: Carbon fibre body?
Wireless?
Hmm, well according to about 50% of the Nikon FX forum it must be an amateur model.
Pro cameras are made of magnesium alloy and wireless is just an affection for amateurs and soccer parents...
I'm just saying.

It has no articulated screen so it must be something PRO!

Johannes Zander: For the moment Canon wins the megapixel race.
But surly Nikon, Sony and maybe Pentax with a new FF camera have a very competitive answer.
Anyway, 36mpix of my D800 are plenty for my amateur needs.

On Olympus announces OM-D E-M1 firmware version 3.0 article (43 comments in total)

I am so happy that I bought the E-M1 last year!
It is a great camera.
I hope Olympus is continuing on this path.
I also hope for an Olympus body the size of the GM5 with IBIS.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 Review preview (434 comments in total)

That's the way to go for the Nikon 1 series!

Nikon build a V4 like that and I buy all the expensive CX lenses!

Else I keep my V1 until it brakes.

On 2014 Readers' Polls: The results are in! article (375 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marty4650: Lets be honest. Most of the people who voted in that poll never touched ANY of the cameras they voted for. Perhaps a few did, but most didn't.

And absolutely no one has tested them all. Not even Dpreview had done that, and they have a staff of fifteen people.

So this poll is pretty much a popularity contest. We just voted for the camera we thought was the "most significant of the year" based on what we knew about it from reading various reviews and looking at the spec sheets.

Once you understand that point, then all the claims that a camera wasn't available for sale long enough, or wasn't available in all markets, becomes meaningless.

... that's way these polls are totally meanignless for practical photography.

jtan163: The Nikon Australia site to check your D750 is:

http://www.nikon-asia.com/en_Asia/service/service_advisory.page?ID=templatedata/en_Asia/taggable_content/data/service_advisory_notices/d750_service_advisory&Category=service-and-support&Section=

I presume the same site will be used for other Asia/Pacific/Oceania countries as well, since it is the Nikon Asia site.

The NikonUSA site identified my D750 as eligible for the service, however the instructions for getting service are different for Australian and I presume other APac/Oceania users.
The instructions are "contact you local service center" via this link: http://www.nikon-asia.com/en_Asia/service/service_centers.page .

@DPRSTAFF any chance you might cater to non US/North American readers with these types of announcements?

@jtan
Yes I was too quick. Should wait until the editing period times out.
Have a nice day!

"The Nikon Australia site to check your D8750 is:"

D8750 is that the annouced model that combines all the issues like left AF problem, oil spots, flare, light leaks in one model?

I think I want to preorder!!!!! :)
