SUNY Purchase Aperture: You guys are missing the point. This is the first full frame DSLR to give resolution once only possible on a 25,000 dollar medium format camera. Not even a D800 or D810 is this high. So what it has lower iso? So what it has fewer video specs? That isnt what its made for. Its for photographers who need pure quality and resolution. Its not for videomaking, not for selfies, not for sports. Its PURE photography.

Yes, I agree with that totally - luckily DR is very good on the D810 - hopefully it will be great on the new Canon cameras too (?)

I have the Nikon D810 and having lots of MPs is very handy on many occasions. 50MP will be great for those who want it. If you don't want it then don't buy it - simples.

amachaBrett: You have to just love the haters.
The anti megapixel police.
The its got no features police.
The why have features if it's a specialist camera police.
The anti video police.
The it ain't got Sony quality video police.
The DR is too limited police.
The files are too large police.
The why crop to lower file size police.
We are so lucky to have these self appointed police to save us from the evil Canon.

Spot on !

mpgxsvcd: Nikon could be sitting on top of the industry right now if they had just embraced mirrorless ILCs. And no the 1-series was not them embracing mirrorless. That was Nikon making fun of mirrorless at their own expense.

Nikon’s only hope is to swallow their pride and make a full frame mirrorless camera. Use the fabulous Sony sensor and give it all of the excellent photography controls of their DF camera. The main thing is that they have to come up with a unique and excellent Electronic Viewfinder. They need something to set their camera apart from all of the others.

Right now there really aren’t that many small cameras with a tremendous view finder. Some People still want that and they are willing to pay for it. Nikon you need to wake up and take their money.

Absolutely agree, DaveE1. Can't imagine me ever switching. Lugging my camera and lenses about is part of the pleasure !
