NR just posted some photos of the 18-300 and the 2nd photo is very interesting since it is showing the lens extended and upright, with no lens creep. boom!

RoccoGalatioto: Nikon should be ashamed of themselves for even considering a plastic mount.
Ridiculous.

i can see the photo alright, but i have read somewhere where they said it is metal, and the photo is not very conclusive, i think all the old 24-85 were all metal, hence hard to believe this is plastic, in any case we shall see...

Why does the world "need" another lens in that range ?

2 words: price and price

Halfdan Faber: Well, I decided to take the trouble and line up the ratings in an image editor, to attempt to extract the detailed figures. Below are my findings. I have used a uniformly weighted ranking of Poor=0 to Excellent=14. As others have noted, the D800 did indeed score slightly higher. DPR has responded to previous poster by stating that the scales have different starting points. If this is true then their ranking figures are deceptive. On the merit of the actual numbers, I would say that the rankings are not credible and the overall equal ranking appears to be a fabricated result.

Jonathan F/2: Dpreview scores are definitely tainted. The D800 and 5Dm3 get the same score? So despite having 36mp and being $500 USD cheaper, you guys feel the 5D mark III is equal to the D800? The cons for the D800 are more like niggles, while the cons for the 5Dm3 are issues of concern. And even stated on the 5Dm3 review itself "Scoring is relative only to the other cameras in the same category." Yeah right.

it is not easy making a tech reviews, i know i have blogged about it and wrote on some forums as well, however the right thing to do is always be honest...

why many here are crying foul, is the fact that when you add up all the features and plus factors, it seems as though that the D800 wins it! the fact that the reviewers did not justify why then the same score between the 5DMK3 and D800, is BS! if you are biased, just have the balls to admit it, or else just write why it ended that way... just my 0.2

and yea, i am not writing which cam is best, i can't do that, since i have not reviewed both cams, i do have an opinion about it, but that is besides the point... i am writing on the basis of the reviews, all i am saying is have the balls, just don't BS us!
