In reply to:

Knoxis: Good photos? Sure. They're good. Except for that one shot at Yosemite where there was a star trail in the middle of a bright, blue-skied day. You don't see stars at such a bright time of the day. Or at least I've never seen that happen. It just feels unnatural. Maybe Taylor added the stars in during post processing, as part of his "artistic license", but it really feels fake to me.

Also, all art, including photography, is subjective. I suggest those playing off the negative comments as "insecurity" to keep that to themselves, because there's no way one person's photographs can please everybody. To you it may look like the work of a prodigy, but to me they look just good. There's no reason why I should feel threatened by someone else's work, since it is only my work that can prove how good I am.

Knoxis you should master the basics of photography before trashing this young photographer.

davidit: Always be nteresting to hear the "who has the best editing platform" argument. Should be the who can make my photos look better argument. Seriously how would you guys even have made a living in the film days with your heavy reliance on post editing? If you cannot use one of your photos straight out of your camera without running it through software then you should give up. The only editing i do is cropping.
You should all take a step back and learn how to take good photos rather than waste your time arguing about editing.

:) Just saying.

Frederik Paul: Big dissapointment! Won't be No. 1 APS-C for five years as the 7D did, more or less. AF improvements are okay, but the rest? Why no touch LCD when having Dual Pixel AF? Will the sensor finally be much better than the previous generation, giving less noise when pulling the shadows in RAW? And what did Canon think when they developed the AF selection modes? Why still three zones _vertically_ on both sides and a new mode with only three zones, not five like before? Not to mention that this should be 2 vertical zones on both sides, one center and two up/below, making it seven, but not nine or three! This is nonsense design!
This way, Canon (and perhaps Nikon, too) will not hold on their own against the EVILs, even though DSLR are still better in many ways.

:)))) This was really funny. Thumbs up for your sarcasm.

TheBaldEagle: I wish/hope that the new high ends Nikon Cameras (like D810) have at least 4K video output (even in APS-C crop size) for other recorders in order to compete well with Sony Alpha 7S and others 4K capable cameras because 4K is the future (next several years) for high end video!

I wish the D810 replacement ( D900 ) has NO VIDEO. I never shot video and never will.
The point is: the world is not revolving around one's needs. In this moment all the gear in the world is superb ( Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc. ) stop complaining and pick a system AND USE IT.

Just a Photographer: According to Nikons' current naming convention.
The D800 was flawed, why else call it D810?

Everything off late that has the x10 naming with Nikon had hardware problems.

Too bad that current D800 owners will now know there will be no firmware updates to their beloved camera anymore and that they have a EOL product after only two years.

You do understand that all new products have flaws. Early adopters often have to pay a price and encounter all sorts of issues. Yes some models had this problem, but as a percentage I don't think this was such a big deal.

Alejandro del Pielago: Some posts are so filled with bitterness... about everything, but not everything applicable in this case.

Get all the information, then judge.

So many people don`t use the available information, but just a black liver to judge.

It's just sad. People judge so easily, yet they don't know all the facts. They didn't bother looking at the whole series of photos. They didn't try to process all the information and don't know what was wrong in the photo description. This thread is a ridicule to photography and photojournalists. An absurd rant driven by ignorance and lack of knowledge.

RoccoGalatioto: Nikon should be ashamed of themselves for even considering a plastic mount.
