Just Ed: Seems to be limited to a particular segment of the production run which would indicate manufacturing rather than design problems.

Congrats to Nikon for recognizing the problem and being on top of the remedy.

Still like my Canon though.

Yes, they could keep denying it like they initially did with the D600 oil issue.

In reply to:

AKH: About the same IQ as A7. Nice.

Not a significant difference in the DXO measurements, they're probably in the margin of error.

Very creative. Gotta try that some day!

In reply to:

klimbkat: Wow - really underwhelming, particularly since Kauai is so photogenic. Why bother showing such mediocre snapshots?

They're not supposed to be photography masterpieces. They're just samples meaning to show you what IQ the sensor is capable of.

In reply to:

mypic: I guess DPREVIEW missed that little flaw.

Let me clarify that for you: only a few of the cameras have the issue. It's not as widespread as the D600 oil issue.

In reply to:

io_bg: Having read some of the comments I still can't get it why is everyone so obsessed with the DOF capabilities of fullframe cameras and always equalize it with other formats' DOF capabilities.

I've a DX camera. I also like to have a shallow DOF from time to time but I think it's so overrated. The point of photography shouldn't be having the shallowest and creamiest shallow DOF!

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1838 comments in total)

Seems like a great camera. Now that they have a wide FX line-up, I hope they'll concentrate on DX cameras and lenses in 2015. They could start with a D7200 with the same body and specs as the D750 (save for the full frame sensor) and, hopefully, some new lenses. I'd love to see the f/1.8 DX set complete as well as some f/2.8 and f/4 zooms.
Hopefully at least half of my wishes come true :)

In reply to:

KonstantinosK: Nice review. I went to the cons list at the end and searched for a "mediocre dynamic range, compared even to older competitors, can lead to noisy images" comment, but no...

There you go, shooting sports won't help you understand what the lack of DR in low ISO is.

In reply to:

Jonathan F/2: I don't get what people are complaining about. There's still a huge market for APS-C DSLR shooters. A D7200 with the D750 body would be a killer DX camera if Nikon chose to release it.

They will most certainly release a D7200 soon though it's still unknown whether there'll be a D300 successor.

In reply to:

Digital Suicide: Why don't they release a new A7 model within every half-year? Like they do with their Xperia Z-smartphones...

Because this way they maximize profits and that's what every company wants to achieve.

In reply to:

bgbs: According to these statements Nikon is definitely not in the leading position, they are in the reactionary position. To Nikon it is about studying the market, and competition, and then reacting based on the findings. Apple does not think like that, they create new demands, opportunities and desires, that is what innovation is all about. But when you react to the demands, not only are you too late to the game, but you're not innovating either, you're only upgrading.

I must admit, Nikon has made innovations in a few areas, for example, the Dynamic Range. Nobody talked about DR until Nikon pushed DR limits above expectations, and that caused ripples in the market, causing every Canon user demanding for more DR.

"Apple does not think like that, they create new demands, opportunities and desires, that is what innovation is all about."
Yeah, that's why the iPhone 6's display is almost as big as my Galaxy SIII's which is 2 generations old now.

In reply to:

W Steffey: Could use a little help from Nikon users. Does this lens qualify as a kit lens?

I bought it as a kit with my D90 so I guess it does.

In reply to:

RuthC: Congratulations, io_bg, on coming second in this weekly challenge. This is a very impressive picture of a storm over the city. You have not only captured the lightning strikes, but also the intensity and power of the storm. The dark clouds appear in various shades of blue/grey/purple, the heavy rain is pelting down, and yet there is a hint of a stunning sunset waiting to be enjoyed once this storm has passed. Great capture! Ruth :-)

Thanks a lot!
