Perfect gear for San Pornando Valley me say. Can't wait.
HBowman: 300 UsD ??
My bad, it is the TC ;)
300 UsD ??
Before all, a lot of Nikon users wanted a RUGGED BODY with a more modest sensor than the D800. This camera looks good and I'm sure it will be a success in his niche.
Calling him D750 is an heresy, a blasphemy. This thing is nowhere near what was and is the D700.
The D700 was/is a generalist rugged semi pro FX DSLR providing a BALANCE between File size, AF and functionality. It is a tank and his sensor is... well... pretty good by today standards.
Now Nikon camera are rather extreme.
If you want the build quality of D700 you should go D800 but then, some very good old lenses might suffer (you should buy very good lenses to do justice to the 36 MP).
The DF might have been a good camera if 1/8000 and D4 video and a normal front wheel.
D600 and now this ... are amateur cameras aimed at amateurs (no offence).
We just wanted a balanced, actual, D700. Nothing more, nothing less.
Nukunukoo: Why no AF-ON? Just because you decided it's an "Enthusiast" camera does not mean Pros don't use it. And 1/4000??? WTF???
Ye ... Me think I will continue with my D700 and just buying some more good glass for him. 15k shoot, it is a young boy.
lacikuss: Is this a Sony sensor?
No it is a French Sensor.

Hell yea !! Independence for Scotland !!
haa!!! ELITE PRO !!! wow not for me then !
Nice and original :) I want more !
ebrandon: What a fantastic test. This is precisely the information someone choosing between the A7r and the A7s would want.I applaud not just your careful methodology getting these revealing images, but also the work and analysis that went into your conclusions.Thanks DPreview!
Brown - nose spotted !!
The Squire: Wow. Usable 25600! And another stop up for web use. Amazing.
I think I'd but the A7s if it had a few mainstream Sony lenses to keep the price down. With 12MP I don't think I need £800+ Zeiss glass. An FE version of Sony's 50mm would be fine, thanks, at <£300.
You are wrong. A lot of D700 users trowed it before puting awesome glass on it. When you plug an awesome glass on the D700, the camera deliver outstanding pictures, like you have a new camera in your hands.
3dreal: Pity i have still only winxp. maybe powerful pcs are also needed. see sigma software.
I have an extremely powerful PC (High end Quadro, SSD, CPU and memory). SPP does not improve with power. Still shitty.
Ho yea ?? Lol
gsum: Why post a link to this foul-mouthed ranter? - big mistake DPR.
gsum ... We all know you are Masaya Maeda !! You so lame at defending your reputation !!
Jules Design: ok so I shoot product photography with a D800 and 105 mm prime tethered, in-studio, I meter the light, gray card. Will this baby outperform my current camera???
Foveon works great for me :p
Trollshavethebestcandy: I can see a third party horizontal grip attaching to the tripod mount with an additional tripod mount L bracket center to lens barrel. This cam seriously needs a wifi option for remote capture and a cable release socket.
This camera use USB cable trigger.
Baxter Bad: All this confusion about the ergonomics. Maybe Sigma polled its customers and learned that 95% of DPs are being used for landscapes and studio portraits, so they decided to make the next versions highly specialized for tripod work.
We get a wide body that lets you change the battery without taking the camera off the tripod. A "reversed" grip with all the controls on the back (including focus) and offset for easy access - we never have to reach for the focus ring. Optical finder only - perfect for landscapes, removable for the studio.
Well, that's my guess about the design rationale. Or maybe all the employees were playing too much Flappy Bird.
Actually, I you used at least one DP Merrill, it is possible to change battery without un-mounting the tripod plate.
