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: @dpreviewCan you please clarify the meaning of "same OLED viewfinder display.". Does the D750 have the same size viewfinder as that of the D810?
Sorry for sounding dumb, but I really want to clarify this since I plan to buy it for my birthday on Sunday.
Same dimension and specification, but it only does not have the round shaped viewfinder?

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

codeNsnap: Any news of a fast 23mm from Pentax ? Would have considered K3 over Fujifilm XT-1 if there was a fast 35mm equivalent option for K3.
@DDWD10 Unforfortunaly the Sigma would be a bulky option for my use case :(..BTW can I ask you why you returned the XT-1 ?

codeNsnap: In contrast this is how Fujifilm reacted within about a week of the XT-1 flare reports -
I'm not sure if Nikon will learn anything out of this D600 debacle.
Sorry I didn't follow the orb issue closely. But I know that they replaced the sensors for those camera owners. In any case, at least in the last two years they seem to be very customer focused company with their firmware updates and product enhancements. It is possibly that have embraced their kaizen philosophy recently even more. At least it is change in the right direction for the customers.

Galbertson: Well, have reached my limit...or patiece..to continue my hopes of getting into x-t1. I truly was beginning to believe i could overcome non tactile rear tiny buttons. But this breaking news of light leaks has forced me to lose faith in fuji. Just gotta move on to sony a7, maybe a6000.
By the way, before you tell me of sony's own light leaks, at least theirs was in relatively common area around lens mount, fuji's from side of camera, flap. Whereelse in body is a failed part? Not willing to wait to find out.
They have acknowledged the problem and are proving free servicing now -http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=de&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Ffujifilm.jp%2Finformation%2Farticlead_0251.html

Damn. Wish it was the D400 or D710/D800S release instead.
mbrobich: Just PRE-ordered mine. Got a FREE grip included with the pre-order !!
Dang can't wait !!!!!
OK looks like that is a promotion only in Canada :(
Which retailer ??
codeNsnap: @Barney Is is possible to please clarify the use of the Focus Assist button? I wonder if it can be used as AF-ON (for focus tracking) in Continious Mode? AF-L seems too far to the right to be able to use for focus tracking.
OK, I think I get it. AF-L is simply to statically lock focus. And this could be used either in Manual Focus mode or Static Focus mode. I guess the way to track focus (present only AF-C mode) is to change the mode to AF-C and keep pressing the shutter release half way. Right?
If my understanding is right, then there is no AF-ON mode where the focusing is done by a back button and not the shutter release button.
Thanks for the clarification. But is there an option to do focus tracking at all then? With a toggle functionality, it sounds like it would just be "AF Hold" and no "AF-ON". That is a good point about the position not being a problem because of the size.
OK the Fuji guys clarified it on the video. Focus Assist zooms in on the focus point. And the AF-L and AE-L buttons can be customized. So I believe the AE-L button can be configured to act as AF-L and do focus tracking. It could be nice to have a confirmation on this before pre-ordering it.
