arhmatic: I know most of you think this is nonsense, but if they would only try to push the boundaries of styling a little more, they would have my money. The "feel" of a DSRL is essentially the same since the D1. Style matters, regardless of industry or purpose.
OK all, thanks again, style is irrelevant, this is a badass DSLR as is, let's call it a day! Cheers!
Allright... nevermind!Apologies to all pros here.
Let's close the thread.I will continue enjoying my F2.
I know... thanks!

arhmatic: Dear Nikon, Let's look back at styling... F2 titan vs D100 vs D500.
D500 comes 14 years after the D100. How much smaller are the electronics now vs 2002? Look at your laptop, phone, etc. Don't tell me you cannot fit the D500 into an F2 (with mirror, full frame) body... NOT talking retro, I am only referring to the bulk of the thing. Portability. At least show you are trying...
I know I will be shut down in no time. Banned, why not. But just think for a second... Thanks!
Styling is embedded into all products and evolve with them. Phones, laptops, cars. Look how much they evolve from year to year, both internally and externally. However, two items are exempt from this. DSLR Cameras and military gear. Remember that guy who wanted to put his entire music collection into his pocket? Well, he is dead now...

arhmatic: Not advocating for retro, but anyone can tell why the content of this camera cannot fit into a Nikon F2 sized body?
I know it's digital, but no sarcasm... serious question. Thanks!
@TacticDesigns true with Minolta, but comparing the D100 vs D500, over a period of 14 years, I am not impressed. The styling and bulk of the camera is worse IMO...
If I may, an honest (not sarcasm please) question of industrial design --- the GPS module (not that I necessarily need one) GP-1, is an external dongle. With mobile devices, it's dot sized and incorporated. Any reasons for that, other than $ greed and/or lack of interest in innovation?
Thanks all. Yes, there is a list of parts that need to go in, but there is also a similar lists for smartphones... Look at how fat phones were a decade ago. DSLR never slimmed down. And I know, you need bulk to be able to hold, but F2 served the same function... - around your neck, not in a bulky backpack.Thanks again, very helpful.
Thanks! What about it terms of height and width?

KrisAK: My Canon AE-1 35mm SLR has a massive optical viewfinder...the biggest I've ever used. And yet, dimensionally, it's only a few millimeters wider than an A7 series camera, and actually a bit thinner. With a 28mm FD lens, it's remarkably portable.
At what point in digital camera history did FF DSLRs feel the need to bloat into their current form?
Why can't there be a digital AE-1?
Hard to believe that toy can't fit a DSLR into a body the size of the AE1. If not the top of the line pro DSRL, what about the smallest canon?
Either way, canon and nikon are both dead to me.
Hard to understand how and why Amazon and other retailers feature cameras with such irrelevant headlines.
Example"Pentax 645Z 51MP SLR Camera with 3-Inch LCD- Body (Black)"
So it's got 51mp and it's a SRL. Amazing! But 3-inch and black? is this worthy of a headline? I mean, I am in the market for a $6000 camera and you try to get my attention with the size of the LCD - which is really standard everywhere.
arhmatic: In unrelated "news" - I predict that we will eventually get the D6 in the coming years...
The D6 will be even faster, better, sharper, etc than the D5. Take my word for it.

...and hopefully, with larger batteries. hope to also see the race for slim devices dead. Apple, please...
The entire idea of "camera bags" is dead to me. this is really a thief magnet and nothing else. Just get any bag you want ant fit it with padding per your needs.
All these viewers need an 1:1 button.
I disagree. You are undemining the impact of the photo with some random titles.
"Arc de Triomph"? WHY? You are in Greenland, stay in Greenland. If you like Paris that much, go there. I see no point in having eyes on Greenland, while my mind is set to Paris.
arhmatic: I expect a lens at least as great as the older 35mm 1.4 which I own.But I need to say - odd design. Is there a reason for this lens to use 43mm thread, as opposed to 52, like the old one? OVF view is not a strong enough reason, with EVF so prevalent.
Long conversation here, but just to state my preferences - even if the optical design only requires 43mm, I would have put a 52mm... just for the sake of consistency and easiness...
Much appreciated, Fujifilm!
