It is about the photographer, not the camera. These photos say it all.
saeba77: image the same quality sensor and similar AF in a mirrorless body as the A6xxx.Damn if only Nikon making that not cannibalize his own market:(
@ Zerixos What about electronic shutter? Just wonder.
Joed700: Canon, just buy sensors from Sony...
@ John C TharpSeem to be true. By the way, how do Nikon and Canon prevent their Jpg recipes being stolen by Sony since Sony produces some of their sensors?
Or the Jpg engine is inside the camera, so the sensor alone isn't enough for Sony to know the Jpg recipe?
Sorry for my English.
@YakeJust curious, doesn't Sony produced Canon sensors have Canon colors like some of their 1" Powershots?
Also Sony produced Nikon sensors seem to have Nikon colors, am I wrong?
GaryJP: This is optimistic.
I'm using both Canon and Sony these days. I still prefer the colour of Canon. Too many Sony users are producing horrible fudgy looking low contrast pictures that look like they are shot on expired film. I can often spot a Sony image also by the predilection for green tinged faces and horrible over-modulation of blues, particularly from LED light sources (which DPReview never seems to want to own up to). And it is an aesthetic I try hard not to let creep into my work.
If the new 5D has better dynamic range and usable 4K, my A7RII and A7SII will be for sale. I get tired of struggling with the colours.
Canon does produce one of the best colors in Jpg.
No way! That would kill Nikon to death. We want competition.
The only thing that Nikon left to have over the Canon is the sensor.
Where is "3rd party batteries will not work" note?
Like the D500?
beavertown: Dear Sigma,
We need wide angle, light weight prime lenses for EF-S and DX line-ups. Such as 20mm, 24mm etc.
Sigma is the best!
Exactly. Even if they release those APS-C lenses with new generation of Contemporary line it will be a dream come true.
$339 or $500???
DP reviews cameras frequently through out the year.
This Lumix must be very lucky and special to be one of those.
luxor2: Nikon 1 lens reliability seems to be much lower than their DSLR lenses.both my 10-30mm zooms have had repair under a service advisory, my 10-100 PD zoom has failed with only light use, and with a $495 repair estimate,
At least I can change to another lens if I have a failure, these fixed lens versions will be a highly expensive to repair if Nikon 1 lens mechanical design is not improved. I have many dx and full frame Nikon lenses with few problens so I have nothing against standard Nikon lenses
Well not only N1 lenses, but the bodies and their compact cameras are not reliable, probably last one to two years with some sorts of failure.
They were once known for producing high quality products. My coolpix that I bought in 2001 with robustly usage at work is still working like a charm.
None of those cameras worth $400, let's face it.
Tharaphita: Great news. As Nikon FX user i was searching for good pocketable camera, debating between Nikon J5 and Sony RX100III/IV and Pana LX100, Fuiji X100S.
But ill go for DL24-85 =)
RX100 has Zeiss lens.
When will Nikon develop better JPG output that is on par with Olympus, Canon and Fuji?
Nikon JPG has awful colors that refrain people from buying their cameras that don't have raw format.
No built-in EVF, similar price, no competition there.
Debankur Mukherjee: It would be great to see an APS-C body in the above form factor in future.....
Absolutely, but they have just totally killed the 1 system, don't hold your breath for them to kill the DX.
Why no Nikon??
No one would buy it at those price tags.
Nikon you have done it again and again.
Your company is bleeding.
Please make a light version of 150-600mm for APS-C cameras and it will outsell the FF version.
