codeNsnap: Love the option of having 35mm and 50mm digital zoom option. Thinking of getting this with a Voigtlander 35mm Viewfinder for a super compact 35mm setup. Does anyone know if the back LCD can be turned off when using a hot-shoe optical viewfinder?

Thanks for pointing out the RAW limitation. The only limitation I know earlier was not being able to use manual mode in the 35mm crop setting. Not good. That's a deal-breaker for me.

On article Nikon D810 firmware C 1.10 now available (62 comments in total)

Amazing how people whine when Nikon like any honest software provider provides a fix to address bugs. If only these people were made to write code they would realize that software bugs are a natural part of software development cycle. Even companies with best programming talent like Google, Apple and Microsoft update their products with bug fixes regularly. As long as the product does not have design flaws that cannot be addressed in software, I don't see what the fuss is about when a bug fix is released.

Dear Nikon,

Have a very small feature request for the D750 – a setting to prevent the LCD display from turning on when the ISO button is pressed. The ISO value is always visible in the top LED screen and the viewfinder display. Always turning on the LCD display when ISO button is pressed is unnecessary and distracting for some of us users; so it would be nice to have an option to turn this behavior off. Given the positive direction in which Nikon's customer service response is recently going, I really hope this simple option will be a part of this/next firmware upgrade.

Thanks.

codeNsnap: Just purchased the app. I love the 35mm and 50mm crop options. Changing the shutter speed seems buggy in that it can be hard to put it back to Auto. The auto focus seems a bit off compared to that of iOS Camera app. Wonder why f/stop can be changed - iOS limitation ?

For some reason I was under the impression that it could be controlled through software..thanks for the information.

straylightrun: It's obvious that Tamron were originally going to release 35/1.8, 45/1.8 and 85/1.8, all with VC. But then at the last minute they sold the 85/1.8 to Zeiss for a nice price so Zeiss could 'create' the BATIS 85/1.8 in emount and charge an extra premium for it. It's a real shame that means we missed out on a sensibly priced Tamron 85/1.8 VC though.

We still have the Tamon 90mm f/2.8 VC for marcos and portraits. I own one and its been stellar.

Super ! Thanks Tamron. Finally a compact 35mm with VR/VC for us Nikon shooters. Will be my second Tamron prime after my 90mm VC Macro which has been stellar for macros and portraits.

codeNsnap: Thanks for the proactive response Nikon.

@RichRMA,belle100 You are probably non-engineers who have no clue about the kind of complex hardware and software behind modern DSLRS. Because if you did, you will realize that there million ways in which these systems can fail and you would have _probably_ agreed that as long as the vendor acknowledges and fixes the problem in a timely manner it should be OK.

Its funny how some people are unhappy if Nikon acknowledges (and fixes) a problem and also if Nikon does not acknowledge a problem.

I too have the movie record button configured for ISO.

Thanks Nikon ! I'm glad I did not jump ship to Fujifilm.

Thanks Nikon ! If you can clarify that the newer bodies are not affected, people like me who have held off their decision to purchase the D750 because of the issue can go ahead and purchase it...I had nearly jumped to Fujifilm and I'm glad I waited :)

codeNsnap: Bummer...my Christmas self gift has to be put on hold now. Will wait for Nikon to confirm that flare issue is indeed fixed in newer bodies or confirm that the issue is specific only to certain serial numbers. It will probably be a long wait.

@sandy b - the link is taking me to the main PL article. Can you please clarify which comment you are referring to ?

codeNsnap: Can someone please clarify the fps in FX mode with battery pack?

Thanks.

OK..so only the DX mode benefits from the battery pack..did a quick search on D800 and its FX fps also did not benefit from the battery pack...
