Great story.

Esquilo: First of all, all telephoto lenses with focal lengths over 55 mm will always be FX lenses (the 85 mm macro being the notable exception). There is simply no benefit to make DX lenses for longer focal lengths. When going shorter than about 60 mm there is some size and weight to be gained fror small aperture lenses like the 55-200 and 55-300, but the biggest gain (for Nikon that is) with those lenses are that they are not professional and are made to sub-professional standards. For large aperture lenses the gains are smaller. That's why we'll probably never se any other fast prime for DX than the 35 mm f/1,8 (which is "almost" a FX lens anyway). The reason the FX variant of the 35 mm f/1,8 is more expensive compared to the other lenses in the f/1,8 series is simply that it can not be sold to DX-users which is the majority of Nikon users.

Nikon has a 55-200 and a 55-300 all DX.

On Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal article (809 comments in total)
In reply to:

rallyfan: The best part of the advertorial was the bit about "Even DPReview would benefit from this type of camera." Well, yes, if it sells via the site I suppose DPReview will benefit. Congrats.

Other than that though... Meh... Calling this some sort of revolution is unfounded, and the primary reason the author has to list for whom this device is intended is that it is ostensibly unclear for whom this device in intended...

Will Jackie Treehorn buy 20-30 cameras for his company? I doubt it. Skin tones are poor, and low light performance is unremarkable.

We've shot Canon since the first EOS 6x0 series. The following decade we got the Kodak/Canon hybrids. Then actual Canon DSLRs, and so on, and I'm sure many here have similar backgrounds. If Canon thought this device would be exciting, they've lost the plot.

Amazon may stock it after some time...or is this not to be sold in the US like the EOS M3 ?

In reply to:

bluevellet: If I were buying my first DSLR, this is probably the model I'd go for. Unspectacular (for review sites), but fully functional, feature-packed and reasonably priced.

If and only if they used a pentaprism view finder of the D7x00 series....

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2359 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mssimo: I think this will be a very successful camera. Sony/Nikon/Pentax/Fuji/Olympus/Panasonic photographers have been spoiled with crazy dynamic range but canon shooters know how to optimise the exposure to get the best image possible with 6 year old sensor technology. The big issue with this camera is the price in six months. Nikon and Sony will have 50MP+ super sensors out this year. Those cameras will retail for much less than $3700 US. Canon has great lenses and great body (other than sendor) quality but its time they give in and let someone else create the sensors. The best way I can put this is: Canon is a beautiful, long haired, tan, big eyes, long legged, charming girl with brittish austin powers teeth.

canon shooters know how to optimise the exposure to get the best image possible with 6 year old sensor technology. LOL. Great sarcasm...

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 (1277 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 (594 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 (281 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 (467 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. :)
