On Nikon D750 Review preview (1118 comments in total)
In reply to:

Wubslin: Awesome.

Outdated and inadequate technology, crammed into an unattractive form-factor, with an impenetrable user interface, producing substandard results.

It's almost as if Nikon *want* to fail.

Which camera are you referring to ? The Sigma Quattro ?

In reply to:

James Bligh: I cannot find a word about internal reflection and shutter shock issues of D750 in this review. Please point me to it if I missed it. When dpreview never even mentions (not to say evaluate) the issues, you can no longer say dpreview review is a comprehensive review which I think is a shame. Once renowned for its objective reviews and a comprehensive source of information about camera gears I am afraid dpreview has fallen into the realm of mediocrity many review sites share. The present generation of dpreview staffs may have wasted their talent and ruined the reputation of dpreview. Phil Askey will lament over it seeing the prestige he has built up tainted.

All the Canon fanboys and trolls will be out in full force today....Whiners against progress...

"The main competitor to the D750 is Canon's EOS 6D"..... the main competitor to the D750 is the D610 ....

DP Review, why is the 7D Mark II review out already while the XT1 , D810 and the D750 reviews are still taking time ? Is it because the 7D is easier to test ?

In reply to:

Peter Bendheim: For the Sony fanboys this review must be like being in a starved lion pack dropped in the middle of a herd of buck - free lunch, a real banquet, something to get those claws into.

Meanwhile the Canon fan boys are still hungry, grabbing at what ever scraps of meat the mothership offers to them. If only they crossed over and saw the banding free light in the shadows....

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1170 comments in total)

Is the 7D Mark II really selling all that well... Let's take the US Amazon DLSR rankings as a reference ...I see 3 full frame cameras, the D810, 5D Mark 3 and the D750 ahead of it. Currently :

i) D810 -- #12
ii) 5D Mark 3 -- # 13
iii) D750 -- #16
iv) 7D II -- #17

I don't think we will see a D400 in response to this. The D750 is Nikon's response to the 7D Mark 2.

On High-end full frame roundup (2014) article (539 comments in total)
In reply to:

refusenik: Hmmm, DPR are being inconsistent here - they don't like that the Sony A7/r/S doesn't have a built-in flash but don't seem bothered that the Canon 6D and 5D don't have built-in flash either.

Folks who buy full frame cameras are not your average soccer mom type dslr buyers, and yes they do care a lot about base iso dynamic range. I do not understand why Canon users are such a defensive and insecure lot....

Tap0: I am not sure why they chose 'Kashmir' as a name for a bag designed for women.

So would the backpack be over or under the burqa that she would be wearing if she was not too far away from Pakistan ?

On Real-world test: Nikon D750 at the Museum of Flight article (274 comments in total)
In reply to:

James Bligh: They say it real-world test and they do not cover its weakness such as internal reflection issue. Not even mentioning it I wonder this is a test or an entertainment. What a shame!

I read countless posts by you bashing Nikon. You must be a retired person to have that kind of time to think up new ways to bash Nikon, but you actually behave like a kid. If you scroll down you will see the following comment from Rishi Sanyal regarding the issue : "Thanks for the tip; we'll try it. But I've shot thousands of real-world images with the camera and not seen it. And I've shot straight into the sun, quite a bit"-- so please check and then post .

On Enthusiast interchangeable lens camera 2013 roundup article (468 comments in total)

The Nikon D610, D750 and the Canon 6D should have been included here as they are cameras being targeted at and bought by a large number of enthusiasts. Heck, the Canon 7D Mark II costs more than a Nikon D610 and is not much cheaper than a Canon 6D and a Nikon D750. The biggest differentiator between different classes of cameras is PRICE.

On Nikon D750 real-world samples gallery posted article (348 comments in total)
In reply to:

ThomasSwitzerland: I cannot help. Those samples do not communicate anything what the D750 should be.

They could be taken with almost any camera, even 1” sensor or smaller, by any snap shooter.

I trust <dpreview> as a prime source. But on some of their sample galleries they communicate only one thing: Nonsense. Or said in a diplomatic way: Much room left for optimization.

DP Review should have an unlike button; it helps for comments like the one above. These samples are way more interesting than what is usually presented here as samples. Why don't u show us few images of what the D750 should be ?

Tap0: Is Canon celebrating April Fool's day early ?

Looks like 7 more hours to go for 9 am EST. Its already 9 am on the 7th where I live, so the countdown clock shows zero. Poorly executed and tested campaign, but you could always argue that I am not the intended recipient for this ad campaign since I don't live in the EST time zone. :)

Since you are one of the biggest Canon dealers in India, hope your information is credible....

In reply to:

sneakyracer: Seems to me this Camera is aimed squarely at the Canon 5D3. Nikon is a Canon killer. Bam Bam! Bunch of companies introducing exiting products and Canon...quiet. Either they have the most tight lipped employees, severe NDA's / Embargos and CIA like security measures or they have NOTHING to show.

@ $1000 less than the 5D Mark 3.

Segaman: Gee, all this commotion for aperture setting in live view and a frame second.
Oh yeah, a flipping screen.....that will sell.
I think they just shot themselves in the foot with this new camera, who really need´s it when the D610 is $400 cheaper ?

Did you read the spec list ? What about the increase in focus capabilities and video specs ?

In reply to:

Photo Pete: Can't wait for the Otus 600mm f4.0. I've heard the price will be really competitive!

The Otus 600mm f4.0 will require 2 people to handle. One to look through the viewfinder, and the other to turn the focus ring, a bit like a focus puller. Oh yes, 2 people will be required to carry that monster around. Release date is Photokina 2016.
