On article Nikon fills in the blanks on professional grade D5 DSLR (554 comments in total)
In reply to:

RStyga: What's 3.28m ISO? Could we have a photo taken at this setting, and how low the light must be and the shutter speed fast enough to allow photos to be taken at such sensitivity? Is this a marketing BS or a typo?

@ Arkienkeli
You're off-topic, anally retentive and your behaviour is perhaps borderline troll-like. I've got a few scientific degrees but I'm not feeling arrogant enough to prevent myself from being casual in everyday communication. However, for your information, SI is not the ultimate standard across all scientific disciplines and scientific communication. 'Million' can be very well expressed with a lower 'm' and it is acceptable (e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Million), especially if it's not used in a certain type of strict scientific context or a research paper. So take a chill pill and stick to the topic...

RStyga: I hope the next model (D510) will address the apparent issue of small body and weight of D500; we need at least a 40% larger body and 1Kg weight to be ergonomic enough for pros and pro amateurs otherwise why bother with this "small" and "compact" camera?

Nikon fridges...

Good video. Great reminder that MP is not an important factor in digital photography once a minimum MP threshold is reached; 16MP is plenty.

You Leica fanatics are entertaining. Everyone who opposes digital Leica's clumsiness and lack of know how is summarily dismissed as "stupid Leica bashing". TCS TV is one of the most comprehensive and reliable reviewers of photographic gear on Youtube, not that you know or admit...

Your link is very poor as an argument - your Leica blinkers made you miss the part that I actually saw the camera up close and the Canon bodies in the store... (not to mention that SL's sensor is half the resolution of the 5DSR).

iAPX: Sad, as Samsung have done a great job to deliver incredible price/performance camera, as the NX 500 that was exciting.

NX1 was a due failure, with a tag price near the Nikon D610 (for example) while not having it's dynamic range, true real-world resolution (with good lenses), and noiseless high ISO (or at least beautiful noise at 6400 ISO in BW).

What I wonder is how purchasers of Samsung camera will fell, especially if they shut down lenses, without probably any new lens to put in their camera, and the lack of confidence in the brand & company???

I experienced that with the Pentax K10D, and it's lack of lenses, then I decided to resell it for a few bucks, and go back to Nikon, definitely. Pentax lost my trust, and my wallet too.

@abort
Your summary dismissal of the NX lens line is subjective and ignorant. For example, Photozone reports on the 20-50mm: "Optically it is among the best standard zoom lenses in the mirrorless system class that we've seen so far." The 30/2 is superb, the 20mm is very good as well as the 16mm especially stopped down. The 45mm is really good, indeed, as well as the 12-24 (which is as well build as any lens in this class). How many examples of lens design do you know that offer pancake size and F2 at standard focal length as the 30/2 at all?

Pentax lack lenses? Are you serious??

I don't like NX1 (subjective) but I admit that it's a very powerful camera. Also, NX500 is an excellent and compact DSLM, minus EVF, with perhaps the best APS-C sensor on the market. Samsung's camera division should try to stay afloat and ride the retail storm out; they have really good photo products and deserve to keep making them. Personally, I support them by owing a few.

Tons o Glass 0 Class: What would you rather shoot, Barney: this or the Leica Q?

@Barney Britton
Do you think that popping/retracting the viewfinder will cause it to mechanically/electronically (contacts) fail prematurely? I'm very concerned about this design...

RStyga: The replacement of the brass top with aluminum reducing by 100g the overall weight is an improvement. It only took them a century (in digital camera years) to come up with that but, anyway, it's a good thing. However, crippling the camera and call it a feature (or back to pure form or whatever the Book of Stupids dictates) is something very few manufacturers have dared to do but no surprise coming from Leica. I would think that removing the fiddly, complex and archaic RF mechanism would reduce the cost much more than removing LV/video but, hey, Leica's market... er, I mean engineers, know better. Try to knock a bit hard on a surface with this 'high-quality' body and see how accurate your focusing will become. Oh, well.... and the price is Leica, i.e., still for victims of the red dot. Overall, another great product form Leica. Maybe they need to reach bankruptcy without Panasonic around to wake up from their lethargic and monolithic sleep.

Isn't that an irony.. Leca cameras ARE missing the point in general.

There is a reason "crap" exist on modern cameras. They do help photographers capture the moment. If you are used to shoot certain subjects using very basic controls that's fine, even commendable at times, but not necessarily efficient or recommended. Leica does not offer superior reliability or built quality in the digital camera market, and cameras are no longer light-tight boxes, full stop. So, what's left to be potentially offered by Leica? Lens base, image quality, ergonomics, and a competitive price. I'd agree they have the first and, occasionally, the second points covered but fail dismally on the third and fourth points.
