On article Nikon D500 real-world sample gallery updated (67 comments in total)

"Richard Butler is there with Nikon."

is this DPR's way of telling us Nikon paid in part or whole for the content published here? just wondering ... and if so, was it an arm's length relationship or did DPR imbibe in any of the hospitalities Nikon offered ?

don't get me wrong, so far i love my D500, but given the advertising Nikon has done on this site, i believe it's important to qualify DPR's relationship between the content it publishes and any paid compensation it gets in return. JMO.

i'm not sure about this effect, but Tim Orton makes the best donuts.

BradJudy: I like seeing the original Kodak Brownie in the list, but I'm not sure why DPReview chose to highlight an image of a Kodak model that was released 50+ years later.

convenience, or perhaps they just didn't know?

a Brownie is a Brownie is a Brownie — unless it also has some magical properties.

"will be delayed due to the serious issues with the integrated circuit for image processing built into the three new premium compact cameras,"

announcing new products before their ASIC's are fully debugged ... oops!!!

that sure doesn't look like a D500. what other DSLRs are SnapBridge compatible?

nunatak: Analysis: "The gentlemen we spoke to didn't quite say it, but let's be honest - the D500 is a camera for DPReview readers. All those who complained for years that the D300S didn't have a proper replacement can take pleasure in the fact that it was your complaints that lead directly to the creation of the D500"

indeed, let's be honest. DPreview had far less to do with this, i think, than Thom's persistent and nagging criticism. to be fair, when Thom engaged daily at DPreview, he got the crowd going. if he had his own forum, Nikon would have read his readers complaints there. simply said, w/o Thom stirring the pot as hard as he did ... i suspect the chances of realizing a D500 were far, far less. JMO.

the sheer scale also attracts plenty of opposing or irreconcilable differences. this often cancels public opinions out.

Q: Can we expect to see much further development of lenses for the 1-series, or is your focus on DL?

A: We will continue to watch the needs of our customers and market trends to decide what new products will be appropriate - we cannot reveal future plans yet.

Translation: Nikon's being cautious and reactive to Cx rather than aggressive and pro-active. much will depend on sales.

"Yes we have plans for more (Dx) lenses, if necessary after analyzing the needs of the market. "

sounds like Nikon's being cautious and reactive to Dx rather than aggressive and pro-active. much will depend on sales.

in the past, DPreview was rightfully criticized for their dewey eyed school girl approach to questions tossed out at Nikon execs. this year, it seems, DPreview did press them as far as they were willing to go on legitimate questions concerning Cx, Dx, and now DL.

an improvement is an improvement and my hat is tipped to DPreview for that. :)
