Adam Woodworth is so good. Such an inspirational photographer he is.

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1100 comments in total)
In reply to:

Thermidor: I'm seriously considering the D610 and Sony A7 which is much more in my price range, but I'm curious to know how much better the D750 is if you ignore the tilting LCD screen and wi-fi (which are nice to have, but not a must-have). The biggest draw for me is the one stop higher ISO performance, but is there anything else that stands out? I'm quite inclined to the D610 because it has a silent shutter option, which helps a lot with the stage shooting I normally do. I don't need to track very complicated subjects, and more often than not, I'll focus and recompose from the central AF point, so I don't need a highly sophisticated AF system, just good metering and high ISO performance.

If you shoot RAW the D610 is a no brainer purchase over the D750. Take the $800 savings and put it towards a nice lens.

Stitzer23: This d750 makes the d610 look good!

The D610 is $800 cheaper. That's why it looks good.

blink667: Curious about the coming competition between the D750 and Sony A7II which has in-body stabilization and is $1000 cheaper with a 28-70mm.

Huh? The A7II with the 28-70mm is $300 less than the D750. http://bhpho.to/12oXZmf

I use the Olympus EM-1. Which is a great micro 4/3rds camera. But I'm actually thinking about getting this. I did sell my D700. The reason I miss FF is because it really reminds of shooting with 35mm film. I guess it may be an age thing.

Donnie G: Olympus makes great lenses. It's too bad that these lenses are being made for a dying system. Micro 4/3 will be laid to rest alongside 4/3 because both Olympus and Panasonic together can't generate enough sales volume to keep the standard alive, and 3rd party lens makers are swallowing up the few chances at profit that are left. R.I.P. M4/3.

You mean the lagging FF DSLR dinosaur is dying.

maxnimo: Okay, I'm trying hard to not burst into laughter, but what would a serious photographer use a 7-14mm lens for?

The only thing I can think of is a sneaky, dishonest realtor who wants to make a small room appear huge.

Ummm. A landscape photograph????

lka968: Don't you get more if you buy the D7000 for a fraction of the price?

Or even the upcoming D5300?

The release of the Nikon DF just gave mirrorless cameras a huge boost....

It's an insane price. I love Nikon and I was really looking forward to this. But $2746??? Really??? For this??? Mirrorless is really starting to look much more attractive now. See ya' Nikon.

Digital Suicide: It's a shame. Nikon almost nailed it.
Nikon was very close to everyone's dreamed the perfect camera...

Where did you have the chance to actually see and test the camera?

I get a kick out of everyone on this forum who is already such an expert and knows so much about this camera. Yet it isn't even officially released yet...
