Lots of peripheral CA - hope it can be greatly compensated in lens correction...

Love those frames of the silhouetted Camel Rock at Tesuque with the moon. Having a telephoto adapter available might have added even more... Nice job!

Lin Evans: I'm having difficulty recconsiling this statement: " Despite the relatively low resolution of this sensor in the D7200, it will still stick to your subject in a wide variety of scenarios better than any competitor's APS-C DSLR, and the dedicated phase-detect module means the camera is also good at actually focusing on that tracked subject, even in continuous shooting. The improved low-light performance (down to -3EV) means you can continue to focus, and track, subjects in very dim light." and this statement: "If you're specifically after a DSLR and you mainly want to shoot stills, then the D7200 is an obvious choice:" Why would a camera which has the best AF tracking available in an APS C dSLR be considered one which is an obvious choice if " you mainly want to shoot stills???" Perhaps I"m misunderstanding what you mean by "stills." To me stills are non action - I assume you mean this to be non-video?

I don't think he's referring to the image sensor but rather the RGB metering sensor...

I'd rather have a Chimp's hand - or even a dog's paw - LOL

Lin Evans: How are you converting your RAW files? My D7200 didn't come with a RAW converter like my D7000, D5300 and D7100 did???

I called Nikon's support and a very helpful lady gave me a link to Nikon's NX-i software. I installed it and it appears to work in concert with NX-D. Now when I open NX-D (latest version), it offers an option of opening the RAW file with NX-i and works to convert the RAW file. Problem solved.... Thanks all for the tips...

I loaded the latest NX-D version but it just says "cannot load" followed by the filename when I try to load the NEF...

Lin Evans: Does it or does it not have GPS? The text says yes but the specifications say "none"...

Nikon says "Yes" it indeed has GPS - from Nikon site: The P900 is also equipped with a variety of features that make photography more fun, including an electronic viewfinder with built-in eye sensor, GPS/GLONASS/QZSS support that enables recording of location data with images, and support for NFC, which easily enables Wi-Fi® connection to a smart device

mpgxsvcd: I would be willing to bet that no one is ever able to take a truly good picture with this camera at the 35mm equivalent of 2000mm.

My 8 inch F4.0 telescope gives me the 35mm equivalent of 1600mm. That perfectly fills a 16:9 aspect ratio with the moon. However, it has to be on a tracking mount in order to follow the moon’s motion at this focal length. Therefore, it is unrealistic to think that you are going to get great images or even videos of objects in space while hand holding this camera or if it is on a non-tracking tripod mount.

The lack of RAW is a good indication that these images are useless without massive in camera distortion correction. Even with the correction they are probably still close to useless. That is a tiny sensor with a ridiculous zoom range.

This camera would have been so much better if they just gave it a 25x zoom and a faster aperture instead.

Some of your assumptions are incorrect here. It is possible to use higher than 800mm hand-held and get quite decent pictures. I use 1200mm and get quite satisfactory image with my Canon SX50 HS. I also have digiscoped for many, many years - I'm the digiscoping moderator on Steve's digicams. I use all types of both professional and consumer digicams and image quality is very important to me. I think everyone should reserve their opinions until this camera has been reviewed.

Lin Evans: They probably couldn't catch Sony or even Nikon (with the 1 series) if they really tried. This camera is overpriced, has mediocre autofocus and too many competitors with substantial headstarts. If Canon wants to seriously play in this market they need to go back to their CAD systems and redesign something truly innovative and competitive IMHO..

No. My Nikon One has excellent autofocus and uses, with the adapter, nearly any Nikon lens - let's me capture wildlife images I can't do with my pro-level Canon and Nikon bodies. I don't see this m Canon equalling any of the above. So, no I'm not joking.

In reply to:

Anastigmat: Being a landscape camera, it should come with a built-in GPS, and that data can then be used to go back to the exact spot years later, even if one forgot where the photo was originally taken. A GPS unit would be less useful if one is shooting sports because the uniforms would inform you which team was playing and therefore where the photos were taken. It is a glaring omission that hopefully Canon can correct before launching the camera.

Cell phones are generally optimized for use on roads, in cities, etc. Most are pretty worthless where I photograph. There is no cell connect... The battery eating gps on my Nikon D5300 internal works just fine though but neither my Nokia 800 nor my iPhones gps is useable.

In reply to:

keither11: I would wait for the 5D Mk IV. These new cameras are too specific, they don't really need the "S" version. Why would you buy a 50mp camera and not choose the one that will be sharper, the "R" version, seems redundant. These cameras are for catalog(S) and architectural(R) work, basically. Those specific shooters use PHASE or Hasselblad for (true 16Bit) in their hi-res imagery.

Would have been nice if they added a body that did astrophotography with 50mp, that would have made sense, the "A" model... There better be a baseline 5D Mk IV with all of the bells and whistles (stills & video) down the road, or Canon is in hot water. Even with all that money and R&D, Canon is the one that is one step behind now and following it's competitors.

Why would anyone want a 50mp sensor for catalog work? Perhaps for high-end double truck ads, but certainly not for catalogs...
