RStyga: That serves them right, they needed that bit of humility, arrogant dinosaurs... I'm happy to hear, now, all those Leica fanatics telling me how superior Leica cameras are in terms of build quality, once more...
Very elegant response. You've certainly shown those "arrogant" Leica users what true humility is. Not to mention maturity. And compassion.
PhotoKhan: "We recommend: Nikon D750"
I am a Canon user and I endorse this recommendation.
I am a Nikon d750 user and I second your endorsement...
mcrazza85: Seriously, it's been two months since this first impressions writeup and there is still NO review of the D750. And what about the D810? Why, DPR? What gives?
With all the money we pay for our DPReview access, I agree: outrageous!
Sand Pond: As an update to my cursory review of the D750, I must say that the extremely pathetic battery charger supplied with the camera continues to present problems. My complaint, and the complaints of others, therefore bear repeating. I have found the D750 to be a fabulous camera, with absolutely stunning video, and have no purchase regrets there. HOWEVER, the "toy", "cordless", "single" battery charger is very nearly reason enough not to buy the camera. Especially so, considering there is no viable replacement (the Watson Duo being a total loss as well). Although the D750 claims to be shipped with a "corded" MH-25A Nikon Charger, there is no cord (only a wall outlet adapter)! Nikon saved a penny at the expense of making millions of D750 buyers very unhappy when they first attempt to charge up the battery for their otherwise wonderful and exquisite D750.
Interesting. I own the d750, and the d600 (which shares the same charger) for two years before that, and I never had a single problem with the battery charger. "Extremely pathetic?" "Nearly reason enough not to buy the camera?" Really?!? I mean, I slipped the battery in and stuck the charger into a wall socket and, presto! a couple of hours later...a charged battery.
Let me guess: you were a Drama major in college...
D200_4me: Looks like there's finally a D700 replacement. But I've moved on already. Who knows...if they had gave us a D700 replacement awhile ago, I might not have been so inclined to go looking elsewhere.
And you moved away from DSLRs why? Did your D700 suddenly stop working? Did it stop taking great pictures?
h2k: After reading most of this report, my initial hobbyist's thoughts:
- Why do they build a vertically hinging monitor? Side-hinging obviously gives you many more different viewing angles (even beyond selfies and portrait orientation). Nikon did side-hinging monitors before even on DSLRs, but i note a general trend towards vertically articulated screens industry-wide
- How fast is the live view? (Perhaps not ok to comment on, considering the pre-production status of the camera under review)
- Does the report state somewhere if the camera has touch screen? I think it should be expressively noted if or if not a touch screen is there. If, say, there is no touchscreen, it should be expressively noted too
- Why do you say FX and DX? That sounds like adopting Nikon PR speech. Full-frame and APS-C are much more generally used terms without smelling of brand affiliation
Why FX and DX? Well, it is a Nikon we're talking about here, so I think it's ok if they "smell of brand affiliation."
DX is more precise, and refers specifically to the form factor of Nikon's APS-C implementation.
If you click on the link to the listing, there's a sidebar that says "Offset the cost of this item by trading in used equipment."
This may well be the justification we've been waiting for to invade and annex our northern neighbors. :mwahaha:
lensberg: The 5D Mark III is an all-round class act... definitely superior to the D800 / 800E / 810 in low light...
As for DXO... well I suppose the average Nikon fan needs their egos propped up from a "scientific" point of view... thus its existence...
Its amazing how many pro's use Canon... despite DXO's claims of Nikon's vast sensor tech prowess... at most major international sporting events white lenses still reign supreme... with perhaps with a thin speckling of black glass here and there... :)
You sound somewhat desperate...
Wait...under way in Brazil right now? Is the U.S. in it? Crap! Does anyone know if it's televised or anything?!?
b craw: Now, if we could just get some LDS to buy Canon.
Latter Day Saint?
vscd: DXO should finally unbound old Cameras from the "Elite" Edition. I don't understand why I have to pay 299$ for my 9 years old Canon 5D. :-(
They should do away with the elite edition, period. As far as I could tell, it adds no functionality; it's simply a way to charge a subset of users more for the exact same product. I was very close to purchasing the product last year, until I realized that, as a D600 user, I would have to pay almost double simply because of the camera I used, and with no expectation of increased performance or additional features. Yeah, I don't think so...
Nice to see Canon competing with Nikon in the overpriced semi-pro 16-35 market...
driftnomore: is my k-5 better than the k-3?
Yes, it's 2 better...
paulski66: Well, on the plus side, at least we won't have to read any more posts from all the Pentax fanboys complaining "Where's the K-3 review?" every time DPReview posts a review of any other camera.
Would that I could avoid them, D1NO. Every review DPR publishes is met with the same chorus of bitching and whining from the Pentaxians, though hopefully this will give us all a temporary respite.
And btw, where the hell is the D4 review?!? The D4 was released over 2 years ago! The K-3 is less than 6 months old, and already we get a full review of it, while we patiently wait and wait for the D4 review and...nothing.
Well, on the plus side, at least we won't have to read any more posts from all the Pentax fanboys complaining "Where's the K-3 review?" every time DPReview posts a review of any other camera.
Heie2: So it's *exactly* the same, but with a couple extremely minor differences. Essentially the EXACT same.
Well so is the Pentax K-50/K-500 from the Pentax K-30 for the most part except a new body and the entry (K-500) and mid-entry/consumer (K-50) differentiation to the product line.
The point being, the review would be extremely easy and quick, just like the D610 must have been. But, there's one thing that is most curious...
D610 Annoucement: October 8th, 2013D610 Review Complete: March 12th, 2014 (124 days)
K-50/K-500 Announcement: June 12th, 2013K-50/K-500 Review Complete: 273 days and counting...
DPR: Fair and Balanced.
My dad shot a Pentax in Vietnam, and used it while I was growing up. His is the last Pentax I've seen in the wild. Not only do I not know anyone who shoots Pentax, I live withing driving distance of two great camera stores, neither of which stocks Pentax.
Pentax has a great legacy, but I would be shocked if they're still making cameras in 10 years...hell, in 5 years. Maybe fans of the brand will get lucky and Sony or someone will buy them up and release a Pentax-branded throwback camera every few years.
But complaining because DPReview reviews Nikons and Canons faster than they review the latest Pentax offering is absurd.
I've had my d600 for over a year now and cleaned the sensor exactly once. Absolutely brilliant camera; I don't regret my decision to purchase it one iota.
Yes, I understand the some people have had issues, and Nikon should have addressed these in a more forthright manner. But I also think the whole thing has been somewhat overblown, and that there are many, many more happy d600 owners than unhappy ones...though as always the unhappy owners are the most vocal.
Thank you, God!
Gary Martin: Sigma has been bringing it.
What does Sigm have to do with this Samyang lens?
