The Coolpix A is critically sharp with excellent details comparing to other cameras including the D800E - to my eyes - the images are true raw rather then cooked raw.

While I'm not a big fan of FB and have not even open a account - but with a user base of over one billion - it's just of time this company will get traction (making $$$) - would anyone be ready for this run?

Manfred Bachmann: Testshots with a Kit zoom?? Why not put an 50/1,4 or any other good lens on it? For me this shots shows nothing, because this lens is simply outresolved!
manfred

This actually make sense since this is the lens packaged with this body - for the buyer this kit - they would want to see these samples - but I do agreed that a better lens would be nice for folks with better lenses - perhaps DPR would do in the future?

just curious - why would DPR provide firmware notice for the D4/users and yet - the camera has not been review?

I downloaded this jpg - processed with Aperture in auto enhance mode with auto sharpen - it's not bad at all and looks very acceptable - like to see the raw file and have this shot @ F8.

coming from this sensor - this is not bad at all - it actually look decent and I'm surprised @ ISO 800 - the noise level is very acceptable.

mpgxsvcd: What is the deal with taking pictures of pictures?

Perhaps ISO and the Shutter speed?

Good job Nikon - this lens looks like a winner and the price point appear to be reasonable - just hope their manufacturing can keep up with demands.

In reply to:

Octane: I don't understand the obsession with who manufactures the sensor. Looking at the DxO tests Nikon has 6 cameras in the top 10 list. Canon, who makes their own sensor, has one in 10th place. And that one camera is their most expensive one, while the D600 is the most affordable full frame camera today.
Nikon is smart, they pick the best from different suppliers and put it together as an amazing camera. That's what made the difference for them in the past 6 years where people thought they were hopelessly behind to now being the top quality SLR producer.

Agreed with Octane:

Who cares who makes the sensor as long as it works ...!

My Apple iMac's CPU is from Intel and the graphic chip is from ATI Radeon - why does it perform better then my Windows 7 with the same Intel/ATI setup? - it's all about 'how' it is implemented and in this case - Nikon's implementation made it possible scoring 94 on DxOMark.

The best endorsement any company can ask of their products?

A star athlete giving his own personal endorsement without being "pay to do so".

On Nikon addresses 1 V1 and 1 J1 flaws with firmware v1.2 article (41 comments in total)

"It was these cameras' tendency to use extremely slow shutter speeds that made us conclude they could be disappointing for beginners, despite the very promising underlying engineering."

then a updated review would be the right thing to do based on the above since this is now addressed.

What I don't like?
people like you how joined June 25., 2012 questioning people on this open forum which they are expressing their opinions instead of justify them you.

Commented on Just Posted: Nikon D3200 in-depth Review news story

@markie6,
question,
Is there an inaccuracy with the review?
Is your only problem with the comparison with other cameras?
Also,
if you don't like the reviews written here you could always choose not...

Also:
I find interesting that you just join this forum and are questioning people on this forum about their contributions - really?

jnk: What - another negative spin by DPR on an otherwise ground breaking entry level camera from Nikon with one of the HIGHEST IQ DX sensor on the market - and everyone here is surprised?

Hint - check out their previous review of Nikon.

"then the Nikon V1 would be their top choice." meaning DPR is not pro-mirrowless :-)

"Odd how some people obtain pleasure by kicking over their neighbors' huts."

Do you mean like how this unbalance review kicked the heck out of Nikon's hut?
