gorgeous autumnal take !..
Rick DeBari: Yes, we at Nikon realize that our best-selling line is DX and that many serious photographers have been begging us for years to design and build a prosumer D400 to replace the popular D300s. It is foolish for you, our customers, to think you know what you want. What you really need are more low-end, consumer-build, plastic-bodied DX cameras. If you really do need a pro-body camera you should invest $3,000 for an FX body like the D810 or $6,000 for a D4s or the new D5. Not enough magnification with FX? Well then, you will just have to buy super-expensive FX glass like the new 500mm AF-S VR f/4 FL for only $10,200! If you are a serious wildlife or sports photographer and absolutely need a new D400 APS-C crop-sensor pro body Nikon doesn't really care about you. We suggest either the new Canon 7D Mark II or the Samsung NX1 as alternatives. :) lol Wake up Nikon!!!
Hi Rick DeBariSo, Nikon D7200 is not good enough an APSC cam for you then ? .. Sorry but what other specs an APSC body must have in order to please you ? Must it be just named "D400" ? Note that 'm not Nikon user ..
exquisite take !..
great vivid colours, .. fab compo and detail !.. like it
fab take indeed !
is this "inspired by Julia Roberts with sexy legs" ? .. :-))
what a long way still to go to be significantly competitive in the realm of AF .. :(
Just Ed: Seems to be limited to a particular segment of the production run which would indicate manufacturing rather than design problems.
Congrats to Nikon for recognizing the problem and being on top of the remedy.
Still like my Canon though.
@io_bgyou're probably right .. :)
did Nikon have any other choice than to recognise the problem ?..
ecube: I might just buy that D750 sooner than planned. What held me back was the lack of built-in GPS. Now that I have the di-GPS Eco Pro for my D800, no need to wait since it also mounts to the D750.
The D750 I my local dealer allowed me to test did not exhibit the talked-about flare. I hope the dealer still have it on Monday.
@ecube you are just annoying sentimental a Nikon owner/buyer, .. I visited your DP pf; .. honestly, does anyone need a 3000 € camera to get this ?
That's an example among others ..
CameraLabTester: Nikon is a good company with good products.
Hopefully, there won't be a time when they have to explain why they disappeared from the planet, entirely.
Marty4650: I think it's time to stop blaming Nikon for their bad behavior in the D600 fiasco, and start praising them for at least learning something from their past mistakes.
Nikon finally got it, and now they are doing things right.
Some companies never get it.
After seeing their fast response to the D750 problem, I have MORE faith in them, and not less.... I wouldn't hesitate to buy one of their products based on this.
@Marty4650, you must be quite a sentimental Nikon owner ;) :D
D600 : 87% & GAD750 : 90% & GA
.. and obviously, in the wake of Nikon's quality control incidents DP reviews' reliability is swinging .. :(
mpgxsvcd: Saying nothing about something is better than saying something about nothing. Just ask Canon.
the same could be said about your comment too :-))
turvyT: D750 looks wonderful until you compare it in lab test section with Pentax 645z. Then, image quality wise, D750 looks just like one more of the pack. I know that IQ only doesn't say much about usability, but the difference is impressive.
turvyT, does that mean you've got a 645Z and some of its lenses, and got some shooting experiences with it ? .. I didn't see any in your dp gallery
quality take !.. congrats
NJOceanView: The incredible D7000 is available for $489.00 at Amazon for those interested. I figure I can sell my 7D2 used (~4,000 actuations) for $1,467.00 and buy three D7000s. But now I see the D7000, too, only got a Silver Award just as the 7D2 did, and more surprisingly received a score of just 80%, even lower than my ever-so-imperfect 7D2. I'm so tied up in knots, I just don't know what to do.
"I just don't know what to do." ..
Just stop buying cameras, go out and take pictures; .. try to set your OWN opinion on your equipment :))
Love Photography 888: This camera makes the D750 look like the bargain of the year.
D750 is a FF, 7D is an APSC !
Joo Prates: I come back to my point about Canon:THE NUMBERS ARE COLD, BUT SHOW THE FACTS:
Let's go to DPR ratings. In interchangeable Lens Cameras, ordered by rating, in Gold Awards, we find in the 10 first best cameras:
- One Canon Camera (EOS-1D Mark IV- 89% / Feb 2010) ,
- Four Nikon cameras (D3S - 89% / Feb 2010; D610 - 87% / Mar 2014; D600 - 87% / Nov 2012; D7100 85% / Apr 2013)
The new Canon 70D - 83% / Oct 2013 in 13 position Gold Award
The new 7D MarkII - 84% / Dec 2014 Silver Award
So, after 5 years...it's the best Canon achieves with their 7D Mark II? the same sensor...low DR...no Wi-fi? are you joking with us?
For instance in lens...how is it possible that Sigma makes a 50 mm 1,4 Art lens, for 950USD (price droping), and the top Canon L 50mm 1,2 that sells for 1600USD is worse in all levels, compared to the Sigma?
I've been a canonist all my life, but I'm disappointed with Canon Cameras and lenses, and I'm considering making the big move - changing to Nikon.
and, after all, as a "life long" Canon user, what's your OWN experience with the brand then ? ..
amazing a compo !..
