In reply to:

Frank C.: Canon should just buy from Sony and offer the best sensor possible to its loyal customers, silly trying to protect their profit margin like that! By overly protecting it they'll end up losing it! Look out!

@fmian: Perhaps the answer lies within your question.

photonius: The Nifty Fifty is already the 50mm f1.8 lens.

It should be the Hefty Fifty or something like that.

It's more like, "Ain't Thrifty Fifty."

Landscape photographers want articulated screens! I like taking photos in unorthodox angles and not putting one on this camera is a grave mistake.

I'm not as nimble as I once were and crouching down to the ground to take a photo is no longer an option. So right now, the only viable option for me is the Nikon D750.

nekrosoft13: D810 is still much better, and yes I'm a Canon shooter, at this point I'm ashamed to admit that but unfortunately i'm stuck with Canon Lenses.

Back up your claim

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II First Impressions Review preview (1293 comments in total)

From a pricepoint, I don't get the purpose of this camera.

For $200 more, you can get the E-M1. And if you don't want to pay that much, get the much cheaper E-M10 for [relatively] similar results.

I like the fact I can check my email on this camera. I can't do the same with the others.

Priaptor: Hey when Domino's admitted their pizza sucked and changed directions, sales sored. One of the great PR strategies that few understand. Nikon obviously learned from the Domino's pizza strategy, although, I still can't say I am a "Domino's pizza fan"

Pizza Hut over Domino's anyday.

Marty4650: If Nikon knows they have a problem with the D750, then they would be crazy to keep selling them.

They are right to pull them off the shelves, inspect and repair them, before returning them to the retail market. Why keep selling cameras that could create unsatisfied and irate customers. Take them back and fix them!

The "sudden disappearance" sounds like a good business decision to me.

Nikon kept selling the D600 and they knew there was a problem with it.

When there's no foreground to work with, your background better be nothing short of spectacular!

Great photos. Maybe it's just me, but I don't get the redundancy in the focal lengths in his equipment. He has an 80-400 and a 200-400? A 17-35 when there's already a 14-24 + 24-70?

On Nikon D750 First-impressions review preview (1422 comments in total)
In reply to:

Gabbymonster: FINALLY got my D750 to replace my D90 !

Waited for quite awhile for Nikon to come out with a full frame with wireless and able to have the remote control trigger as well (absent on the D800) and 51 point focus system.
Its taken Nikon a pretty very incredibly long time to reach this point !

My qualms with the D750 are :

1) the wifi feature, and securing it is even tougher than what I anticipated after reading the posts from before (I am a admin on my office network!!).

a) The andriod app is grossly rudimentary and flawed and unstable.

b) Photoes uploaded are from SD slot 1 only (hint RAW) and uploaded to your
phone's built in memory only (hint RAW). Good luck trying to upload more than 20 raw photoes and crash your build in storage memory.

c) And try emailing out any of the raw from the phone (size exceeded).

d) You are unable to wifi to a notebook where space is not a constraint and you have a full screen to work on the picts !

---> PART 2 in next post

I love how you give the D750 a glowing praise then slam it down in the same post.

Wubslin: Articulated LCD panel on a 'serious' camera body?

Someone stick a fork in Nikon, they're done.

I welcome the articulated LCD. Very handy for street/travel photography when you want to capture images in unorthodox angles.

Just because it's useless to you, doesn't mean it's useless.

Just like Madonna, it's not the skill but the marketing that brings in the money. It is, after all, a business.

The power of suggestion is the biggest scam in history. If you play it well, it pays you well.

Well-played, Peter Lik...

In reply to:

keeponkeepingon: Why isn't the ricoh GR in this roundup?

It seems like a really poor choice to leave a dpreview GOLD award winning high end pocket camera out of the "High End Pocketable" roundup.

Even if you plan on putting it in a "Big sensor Roundup" (or whatever) it still belongs here also as folks looking for a pocketable camera won't necessarily go looking for it among huge clunkers such as the LX100 in your big sensor roundup.

Sarcasm. Look it up.

At that price, it's gonna give Olympus EM-1 a run for its money.

On Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview (441 comments in total)
In reply to:

HeyItsJoel: Hmmm. Thanks to that comparison chart, I think I'll go with the G1X II. Compared to the G7X, it has a larger sensor, further reach, lower ISO and a hotshoe.

@Richard Butler - Thanks for your input. It does help with my consideration between the two cameras. The hotshoe, however, remains a selling point for me.
