Reilly Diefenbach: In another ten years, Canon might catch up to the D7200.

Ken Phillips, I'm not sure what your point is. Mentioning that this is indeed Canon's FIRST attempt at making something that others already have is something special? The fact that Nikon/Sony does have experience and mature technology should be the reason to buy a Nikon/Sony over a Canon.

Chris Yates: Every question must seem an exercise in futility.

I think that's how they got their position. Can you imagine how the job interview went?

Meanwhile, back at Olympus headquarters...

CEO: Hey, we need to sell more cameras.

Marketing: I agree.

CEO: What can we do to make buyers believe they have access to something exclusive, only it's the same damn product?

Marketing: Hmmm... I got it! Let's put a leather jacket on it and maybe they'll think they really have something great!

CEO: I'm not talking about your wife.

Thsoft: No 4K. Very Disappointed

There's a word for having a fantastic feature on any electronic device that you don't need: USELESS.

In the rare occasion that I do use video, the one on my iPhone will suffice.

Not me. I have no need for 4k video.

HeyItsJoel: Color sucks.

nicolaiecostel: Fuji seems to set the bar to which I compare all others for color and skin tone.

In reply to:

(unknown member): I love this kind of thing. As a little kid, my favorite thing was to go on one of the many "factory tours" that were offered by companies at the time, and see how things were made. My father - actually everyone in his family - worked in different roles for a major auto company and I got to see how prototypes were built, how engine blocks were created, glass making, final assembly.

Notable how many visual inspections there are. Some things are still much better detected by human eyes and brains than by any form of automation. That "something just doesn't look right" often is a problem that from the machine vision perspective is all within spec, or isn't detected by the types of tests done.

Hardly any company does real factory tours any more, the kind where you had to put on hardhats or hair nets, safety glasses, and worry about getting your shoes oily.

Amazon's warehouses have the same occupational hazards. :)

utomo99: New Cameras need to be Faster.
and also can capture better images on low light.
Most still need this improvement

Utomo99: define faster? Faster than f'1.4? f1.2? These lenses are fast enough. If you want faster, it's there. You just have to pay for it, but it's there.

endofoto: I dont understand the price of D500 which is higher than D750. Nikon D7200 is more than enough for wildlife, why one would pay 2000 bucks for crop sensor camera.

Valid point though.

aviationphotographer: Bigger question will be raised 4 and 8 years later. When D6/D7 comes out, will we have D500 successors? If so, how it will be called? (Hint: D600 and D700 already exist ;-)

D501's: Levi's jeans edition.

HeyItsJoel: Amazon is working for the NSA. Don't do it.

Seriously though, how hard is it to keep your stuff in an external hard drive and lock it up somewhere?

As far as I'm concerned, the NSA can have all my sexting and all the dirty talk I've had with my girlfriend all they want...

BUT YOU WILL NOT STEAL MY PHOTOS, DAMMIT!!! That's just wrong.
