Who is the next waiting on the line? Hasselblad?

Fully agree

Koray: What did you expect when people have been pushing for six figure ISO capabilities?

K.

Nothing to do with ISO - It is still better to set 100 ISO and have a powerful flash than having a dimmer one and rase the ISO - The guys who value and paid for a good flash 30 years ago are still valuing and paying for them nowadays

Chris Glaudel Paris: on http://www.leefilters.com/index.php/camera/polariser#polariser-landscape , the before/after example is a fake. there is also a gradient filter added to the setting because the top of the tower is darker... what a pity to fool us....

Shoot water surfaces on a cloudy day and tell me it makes no difference having a Polariser, you will be surprised

Not bad at all for DR, although I suspect the dark object might have some dim diffuse reflection and was not exactly that dark but for a 0.00 metering is not bad at all

i did this on a workshop but we used 99% water and a few drops of food colorant - It does not have such a opaque result but it works well against a blue sky or a bit more blurred background - http://www.meetup.com/clicsboa/photos/all_photos/?photoAlbumId=1312727

Nikon also should re-launch the SB-800 one of the best flashes I have ever used, specially when it comes to TTL behaviour

Affordable FFs are a good idea and its natural they lack some stuff, but the problem is that Nikon is making affordable FFs that lack some stuff and YET ARE NOT affordable

DarkLoxodromy: On the sheet seems a little bit superior to D7100.
On which model should point a new buyer (photographically speaking not video).
I had always pointed on Nikon D7100 because 7D was outdated.
Now what do you suggest?

Mike, my writing was not accurate, what I meant to say is just the simple fact of being weather sealed makes it already superior, imagine all the rest on the specs, that is what I meant, cheers

Only the weather sealed makes this camera superior to 7100 but not only and Im a Nikon, a sad disappointed Nikonian - WAY TO GO CANON

A Reflex is a Reflex, not an iPhone, if people like touch screens and point and shoot there are many compacts for that or a Go Pro - Now into the new thing - CONGRATULATIONS CANON for reaching the many ones that have been waiting for this - Im Nikon but Nikon has been so blind to requests that I SERIOUSLY consider changing to this fine sensor and focus features, as long the price is not exagerated

ThomasSwitzerland: Evolution

Nikon shows a fantastic product to jump into FF. Nevertheless, with advanced post processing, the difference between FF and DX narrows. We speak on very small advances now and here. But it is great for progress in taking better pictures.

Better pictures as long you don't need to go above 1/4000, although spending a bunch of dollars on a 2014 camera

In reply to:

Chris2J: I want to upgrade from my D300 (keeping the D300 if possible, of course) to 24Mp FF, slightly better high ISO capability and built-in WiFi. As soon as I have the money, I see no reason not to get the D750.

It is amazing to see how many people on these blogs are just never satisfied with Nikon - as if they always get their requirements met by all other providers. And know much better than Nikon. I think this camera will fly off the shelves.

I normally give it a year before I buy. I have progressed from 3MP (Fuji S602) to 6Mp (D70) to 12MP (D300), so the D750 as a next step (to 24Mp) makes sense :-).

Its not a bad camera, but to expensive for its specs, just that, but if you like to spend that much Im sure you won't be badly served - I Love Nikon, Im Nikon but Im very very very disappointed with its prices

In reply to:

HiRez: This looks like the true upgrade for my D700 that I've been waiting the better part of a decade for. Unfortunately, in the meantime I've fallen for Fuji's high-quality but much more compact (and less expensive) X system. I've been considering selling off all my Nikon gear and going all-in on Fuji X. But this camera will make that decision harder, since I already have some good Nikon lenses. Large, 100% optical VF is hard to beat and still can't get the FF DOF with APS-C.

Going from 1/8000 shutter to a 1/4000 shutter and going from 1/250 Sync to 1/200 Sync is not an upgrade, neither on earth neither on another Galaxy

In reply to:

HiRez: People complaining about the lack of 1/8000th sec shutter, fair enough I guess, but I just scanned my D700 photos in Lightroom. Over 15K photos and not a single one of them was shot at 1/8000th. The 1/200 flash sync (vs. 1/250 for D700) is maybe a bigger problem, although I tend to not use flash unless I have to.

Please understand how Nikon is insulting you and notice the difference from what you said - The problem is not the 1/4000 limit, the problem is having that issue on this price tag, got it ??? Several Symptoms of a limited camera but still an expensive camera - And this are all specs that don't cost much to add and have been around for ages, not talking about revolutionary new expensive specs that should naturally miss on an affordable FF - Cheers
