On Nikon offers AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm F2.8-4E ED VR article (174 comments in total)
In reply to:

pacnwhobbyist: Thom Hogan mentioned on his website that Nikon sent out a survey to existing registered Nikon users about what sort of DSLRs they would like to see in the future. He said that was usually an indicator that Nikon is about to have a major release. Maybe that in combination with this lens announcement in an indicator that the D400 is around the corner?

Me thinks Nikon will introduce the successor to the D300s together with D5 (or whatever will the next gen camera be called ...) and both new camneras will sport a new AF module. Like it happened with D3/D300 combo ...

Hugo808: No lens hood? Shame on you Nikon, you don't want to be cutting cheap corners like that and expecting us to be happy about paying £40 for an optional one. Not when the lens is this pricey anyway!

This is actually the first Nikkor to sport a new, redesigned petal-shaped hood ...

Elaka Farmor: 60fps in 1080p is a welcome feature……well done Canon!

1080/30p is all you get ...

Photo_AK: Optics with their image quality matter the most. I've got the 14-24 Nikkor and use it on D810 and if the Tamron would be better in terms of image quality, I'd sell the Nikon lens and buy the Tamron. But they're basically the same, so ... I'm staying with my Nikkor.

You know, I'd probably get less for my used Nikkor than I'd need to pay for a new Tammy ... so not really a viable option.

In reply to:

TristanW: like to know the F8 MTF. so far, sony F2 ZA has a slightly better wide-open MTF.

for this 24 prime, i would like to go for FE verion, maybe will have a better edge/corner IQ.

Yeah, and how much better is this Siggy at f/2 than the Sony is at f/2 ...?

DPR, you should learn something from political elections - winning by one vote is still winning.
So, which one received more votes; D750 or Alpha a7 II?

"t(w)o close to call" for who?

What exactly do you mean by that ...? Olympus already has a lens, FX/FF-equivalent to 300/4 - the Zuiko 150/2, which also costs $2.000 ... A 300/4 lens on m4/3 would act similar to a 600/8 lens on FX/FF ...

On Phase One announces Capture One Pro 8 article (68 comments in total)

"... a single-user subscription is available for 10,00 USD / 8,00 EUR per month for a 12 month plan."

See Adobe? How come Phase One gets it right with their new Capture One Pro 8, and you don't at 9,99 USD / 12,29 EUR for your yearly CC Photography plan?

On Nikon 1 V3 First Impressions Review preview (647 comments in total)
In reply to:

sandy b: I will get one just for birding, that makes it worth the price of the ticket alone. The V3 and CX70-300 cost over $2000, and is well worth it.

Look at the Nikon 1 forum at the BIF and other shots with the combo. Incredible. Hand held 810 mm equiv. with amazing AF. For low light I have my D600. For everything else I am getting a V3. I like how Nikon has reacted to the market and made the enthusiast model.

Now, either get the Sony sensor or tweak the Aptina, and it will be a do anything camera.

Capanikon - to reach 800 mm, you don't need $20.000:

D7100 + Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD = $2.100
(900 mm equiv.)

D7100 + Nikkor 500/4 = $9.500
(750 mm equiv.)

D7100 + Nikkor 400/2.8G + 1.4X TC = $10.600
(850 mm equiv.)

D610 + Nikkor 600/4G + 1.4X TC = $12.000
(850 mm equiv.)

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1604 comments in total)
In reply to:

codeNsnap: Can someone please clarify the fps in FX mode with battery pack?

Thanks.

The body itself manages 5 fps in FX mode and 6 fps in DX/1.2X crop mode.

When MB-D12 is attached, the D810 still shoots at the same 5 fps in FX mode, but speeds up shooting in DX crop mode to 7 fps.

In 1.2X crop mode and with MB-D12 speed stays at 6 fps, so only DX mode gains from adding the grip.

In reply to:

HeyItsJoel: I'll never understand why Nikon insist on starting their kit lenses at 18mm when the ideal length to start is @ 16mm (~24mm fov).

You forgot the 18-135 ;)

On Ricoh announces 'HD' update to Pentax DA Limited primes article (192 comments in total)
In reply to:

JEROME NOLAS: Who buys 40-43mm lens anyway? What is it good for? Will they ever make 24mm/f2 lens? Or 17-70 f2.8-4.0? Is it so hard? Sigma can do it! What are they doing all day long? Otherwise not bad system.
PS. Maybe Ricoh will come up with a better(zoom) model soon....

43 mm is the REAL normal focal length for leica format, it equals the diagonal of the 24 X 36 imaging area. True, Ricoh does not YET sell or produce a full frame DSLR, but that can change. So yes, 43 mm does make sense, a lot of it.

On Nikkor 18-140mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR hints at mid-range DSLR article (190 comments in total)
In reply to:

tkbslc: I don't know why, but it amuses me that Nikon felt the need to make their 18-140, when everyone else (esp. Canon) is doing 18-135. You just know that was a marketing decision.

Actually the Canon version, once you take the crop factor into account, still reaches just a bit further; 135 mm X 1.6 ends up at 216 mm while 140 mm X 1.53 gets us the equivalent of 214 mm.

Now that's genius ;)

A question pops up ... If they can change the mount on, say, my 24-70/2.8 Sigma lens from Canon's EF to Nikon F mount and keep the focusing, does that mean they can change the mount on the Canon's L version of the same lens to the Nikon F mount?

If it can be done on Sigma lenses, can it be done on Nikkors and Canons?
What about flange distance?

Finally? Really? Not that Nikon ditched "standard form factor" back in the late nineties ...:
