On Nikon D750 First-impressions review preview (951 comments in total)
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 ?

On Zeiss introduces 'no distortion' Otus 1.4/85mm article (336 comments in total)
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.

Majority of the series is devoid of any color, just like the British weather !

Serickmetz: Haha, good one! Makes sense, this is probably "something big" to a third world country.

@Serickmetz....DpReview should also have a thumbs down button for ignorant comments like these

On Readers' showcase: Landscape photography article (107 comments in total)

Still for the majority of the gearheads on this forum including me , the most important question here is the camera and the lens which was used to take the image :)....

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2300 comments in total)
In reply to:

Fazal Majid: For the naysayers: you are not the target market. The people who buy this are those who want true Leica lens quality or brand image (not a rebadged Panasonic), but find the M rangefinder system too difficult to use. It will sell like pancakes, although arguably the X Vario is a better choice for that audience.

Sell like hotcakes , not pancakes is the correct term..

Shunda77: Wow, so many armchair experts commenting here, but so little intelligence....

If you do not like Nikon, you are free to move to another brand. I am perplexed with some of the comments here , it appears that people have voted Nikon to power, and Nikon is not fulfilling their promises. Nikon is just another seller of cameras, if you don't like their offerings, buy another brand.

In reply to:

sixtiesphotographer: My thoughts are that the earthquake/nuclear disaster, followed by the SE Asia tsunamis, really disrupted Nikon's DX plans.

Although I have no DX equipment, I believe Nikon will come out with a D400 and more DX lenses this year. If you don't see them by Photokina, then there won't be much, if anything, for high-end DX offerings.

Also, I'm sure Nikon thinks the D800 is the D700's successor. To me, it's not: I'd take the existing D700, make it take two SD cards and bump the sensor to 18-20MP, otherwise keep it as is.

Dear Shemale, I am trying to comprehend this sentence : "For most people today a camera should be light and an object not anyone sees right away, for others the camera is the object that makes people see them, and still many put an importance to this show off mania. " I believe that YOU do not need a mirror-less cam, you need a pair of Google glasses !

In reply to:

whyamihere: I'm sure I don't speak for the average American consumer, but having owned m4/3 cameras & lenses before trading it all in for a DSLR, I can say there's more to it than 'the camera looks the part'. With the exception of m4/3, few mirrorless systems have a lens catalog on par with most DSLR cameras. This is to be expected with the age of most mirrorless systems, but it does give one pause before investing. The main advantage I saw in mirrorless was compactness, but that gets thrown out the instant most zoom or telephoto lenses come into play, or in the case of some of the particularly large, bulky camera models that have been released lately. There's also the value proposition. For example, I see more value & versatility in a 50mm f/1.4 or f/1.8 lens for a full-frame or an APS-C DSLR than most available mirrorless equivalents. I also don't see value in most mirrorless cameras with similar asking prices of DSLR's that don't deliver at least the same image quality. There, a logical answer.

Use them manually with adapters and manually focus as fast.... I do not understand why the defenders of mirror-less suggest that we buy a $1500 mirror-less cam and use manual focusing on it...Do they practice what they preach ???
