Silly, overpriced photography gear. Can you mount a Lecia to it? If so, it might sell.

On Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article (514 comments in total)

Where's the d810 review? That camera has been out for a year now, and here we're getting hands-on previews for just-announced, not-even-released cameras.

Outrageous...

Well, there you go...proof that Hasselblad haven't cornered the market on stupid.

On Lensbaby introduces Velvet 56mm f/1.6 article (166 comments in total)

Silly LensBaby. If they'd have charged $1700 for it, all of the Nikon kids would've raved about its "rendering" and proclaimed it the best lens ever!

In reply to:

Paul B Jones: Why is it that this Nikon camera got a Silver Award but the similar recent offerings from Canon only got ... a Silver Award too.

Rats. I thought I had the basis for a most excellent conspiracy theory there.

When in doubt, bitch about the lack of a corresponding Pentax review, like so:

"So why is it that this camera has been out for 23 minutes and already there's a review, but we're still waiting for the Pentax k-rg300 review 3.5 years after it was released?!?"

EDIT: I posted this before I saw SmilerGrogan's comments, below. w00t!

One of the better April 1 articles I stumbled across. Excellent tone throughout really helped to sell it. Nicely done.

Now if only there were a Pac-Man button so I could chase little blue ghosts across the DPR forums...

Gesture: Nikon doesn't have to sell the most cameras in the world, just be profitable with what it does best.

Morpho Hunter: This is a fantastic camera - well done Nikon! However, I can't help thinking that many potential purchasers of it are going to wait until after Olympus's EM-5 replacement, an allegedly 40MP wonder camera, is tested.

The most active sub-forum! Well, shiver-me-timbers!

Olympus still makes cameras? I thought they went belly-up years ago...

In reply to:

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.

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!

In reply to:

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...

In reply to:

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?

In reply to:

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.

This may well be the justification we've been waiting for to invade and annex our northern neighbors. :mwahaha:

In reply to:

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...
