Reilly Diefenbach: Another home run for Nikon. It's good to be king.

King of traditional dslr's
They have the best dslr options at nearly all price points for the last couple of years.

AM4L: What's the DR for this sensor?

13-14 stops. Similar as the d7200.

davev8: i have just come from a thread that say mirrorless now have better AF than a DSLR.................in your dreams

Actually they do in some ways vs the same price bracket dslrs.

Mirrorless are more accurate (safe for the autocorrecting D500)

Can focus across the entire scene and detect faces/eyes.
Another feature exclusive to the highest end Dslr's.

That said the d500 is in a class of it's own.
Combining the cleverness with a advanced metering aensor with a phase detect system with no equal.

The Silver Nemesis: DPR in its splendor. When it was released:

- 7D II WAS the best APS-C camera (DSLR) on the market - got a Silver Award
- D500 IS the best APS-C camera (DSLR) on the market - got a Gold Award.

Q.E.D.: I was easily right, again, in predicting this. This is why I am not trusting you since then.

his point was that the 7d mk2 was dissapointing in mamy aspects as well as impressive in others.

It lacked

Wifi/bluetooth
Tilt screen
Touchscreen
Solid video
Dynamic range
Iso performance

Over various competing models at launch.

The D500 doesn't fall behind any apsc body in any category. Except useability in video over some mirrorless models.

No conspiracy Canon just didn't go all out with the 7d mk2.

Shifter: Wouldn't it be great if sensor sizes became consistent amongst the camera makers once and for all? I say it would be.

The first airline to the US had no wings and took several days.

First PC's didn't use silicon but vacuum tubes.

The point is a digital sensor being 864mm2 costs a LOT of money.

A apsc sensor being 370mm for most brands is a lot more manageable on the production side.

Then all the electronica and autofocus internal lens motors and optical stabilisation made the whole system larger.

So people that didn't want a bigger heavier system started preferring smaller formats.

Panasonic was first to respond with the G1

no, fullframe is still too big and too expensive for many.
Apsc is still not good enough for some demanding users.

M43 has a solid lead in easing the load over Apsc while still maintaining very good files.

It's best to just have options that serve more persobal needs.

I do think ILC below m43 makes no sense. But then the Nikon 1 is done for anyway.

Petar Veliki: dpreview is mixed with scoring system. Cameras went on and their system is not good anymore. Many different options. Would be good to end with percentage scoreline, just bronze, silver, gold. Platinum perhaps.

My Panasonic GM-1 is more comfortable to use, touchscreen etc. And lenses... you cant put Sony here.

Your gm-1 is not relevant in this round up as it's far cheaper(and a bit lesa capable)

In reply to:

badbob42mk1: both cameras are great, whilst on here, some will say they are unusable compared to some sony or panasonic, and out in the real world, pros and people who make a living will be doing so with these

People/pro's who make a living shooting sports and action are better off with these no doubt.

People/pro's making a living of fashion portaiture landscapes or even weddings are better with the D810 or even a7r2

People/pro's Shooting low budget video productions are better off with a Panasonic g7/gh4 or Sony a6300/a7s(2).

Just because these camera's are the most expensive doesn't mean they are the best tool for every job.

They are the best for the people covering the olympics though.

Bob1975: Doesn't the D7200 use a Sony sensor. If it does is the camera really a Nikon? The only thing nikon about it is the body when the heart of the camera is made by a different company.

In terms of core parts Cars seem to be the one of the few exception

rhlpetrus: Is it true that its VF looks larger than that of D810?

Mike with Apsc dslr's your OVF has to match the sensor size. Otherwise it would have a wider field of view then what you capture.

So with a Dslr it has everything to do with the physical size of the sensor.

With mirrorless on the other hand it's just a seperate small LCD with a loupe. So it has nothing to do there.

That said Marketing still does some clever accounting.
Gx8 has a 1.56x viewfinder according to them.

In the end it's just a 0.78x equiv. which is still larger the a fullframe Dslr but not by that much.

no, The magnification is higher but the frame is 1.5x smaller.

So in the end it's actually smaller.
0.67x equiv. Which is still the best Apsc OVF to date btw.

In reply to:

Thermidor: Just curious, how's the Nikon D7200 for live view shooting? I own a D750, and previously coming from a Canon 70D, my Nikon's live view is almost terrible in comparison. You get a huge battery drain penalty for using the Canon's live view, but the dual pixel AF is admittedly very fast and accurate. In low light, it's roughly comparable with an Olympus or Panasonic Micro 4/3rds CDAF system.

Worse,

The D750 can change aperture during live view. The D7200 can't. Both are slow

In reply to:

andarioa: Other than "Dual IS" and truly articulating screen, I cannot understand, for the life of me, how DPReview considers the GX8 "as good as" the a6300 in the "Best for video" category. A problem I share with the overwhelming majority of the videographers out there, I suspect.

Well there is more to it.
It has better and more native glass options.
much less rolling shutter
And a gorgeous tilting EVF.
Last but not least a good touch screen

Yes the video out of the A6300 is cleaner and with SLOG having much more dynamic range. I can see their conclusion. It's all about how much you weigh each point.

ventur: cute lens, but who was the guy at Canon that woke up one day, looked at the 4 kit zooms and the solo prime they have and tought: what we really need is a slow macro prime with a built in flaslight!

i sai it again, cute lens, but was it a priority?

Paul,

Yes actually 2 out of 3 competing systems have small affordable macro's lenses.
After all Samsung NX and Nikon 1 are dead.
Sony E, M43 and Fuji X remain.

Both Sony and Panasonic make a 30mm F2.8
However these 2 systems also have longer focal length macro lenses available today.

tkbslc: f6.6? I guess it's good for outdoors in the afternoon.

The S7 may be the best at the moment but a Z3 compact has similar specs and is very affordable.
This can be said for all last generation flagships.

Shooting 600mm at F6.6 with a sensor i would not wanna use above 200-400 = useless.

There is no way to handhold it in front of you and get decent results. There is no EVF to get a more stable shooting position. There is not enough light and the sensor is known to be garbage at higher ISO's. Actually it's worse then the 12mp sensors we had a few years ago. With better digic 5 processors btw.

Unless you shoot a subject in full sun on the brightest day. It's just a useless number on the box.

Like the one i mentioned which got a gold award recently.

Jorginho: So G7 and GX8 hang for shuttershock. Because otherwise they were just stellar in their class. Silver. Both have workarounds, but alas....

Nikon has shuttershock too with workarounds. Yet it gets cold. While I understand we cannot just compare one cam over another it is clear shuttershock has caused the Panny's to get silver. Wonder how Nikon gets away with this...

to be honest rishi no camera in the G7 Gx8 class have those capabilities.

apples to oranges comparison.

One should have higher expectations from a 3 grand. camera vs a 700-1200 buck. camera.

Thr G7 shoots near flawless 4k which means for starting vifeographers it isn't gold it's platinum.

I gave not 1 not 2 but three exampkes directly prooving my point.

But hey i am clueless right. That's why i know why how my smarphone beats a crappy Canon P&S in low light.

Just simple physics it simply gathers more then 3 times the photons.

Incredible how clueless you people are.

Sony Z3 F2.0
Samsung galaxy S7 F1.7
LG G5 F1.7

Canon SX620HS F3.2
Difference about 1 stop.
Which is significant.

ozturert: Perfect lens for dentists and reproduction work. Even a walk-around lens maybe instead of 22mm (which is also excellent).

that 9 cm is from the sensor

The lens is 46mm the flange is 18mm.
That means 64mm from the front element to the sensor which would leave 26 mm

Then the lens seems to extend when focussing judging by the image.
Which means at least anoth 10mm gone.

So the working distance is approx 1 cm.
Which means if you want to check someone's backtooth i wish you the best of luck.
