senn_b: As bird photographer I don't really need a FF camera, though 1Dx II as its predecessor sounds a technical prowess. I've got 7D and not exited at all by an upgrade with 7D II. But I'd very welcome 1D Mk IV successor.

hey! .. cool @Thematic; .. just take time to read the thread properly; .. I've just expressed my preference for a Canon APS-H pro cam; .. may I ? .. AGAIN "I'd very welcome 1D Mk IV successor." .. And I don't care wether or not that's bizarre for you ..

mezastel: Why don't they up the megapixel count? 20MP good enough for everyone?

this is a technical trade-off between fps and image resolution, .. anyway, IMHO it's more than enough

Marty4650: Despite all the mystery there are three things we can safely predict:

1. It will be an outstanding camera. Pentax just doesn't make junk.
2. It will be perfect for Pentax K mount users who want full frame.
3. It will be very competitively priced.

However, one thing it will not do is take market share away from Canon, Nikon or Sony full frame cameras. Nikon and Canon are too firmly entrenched in the full frame market, and Sony is virtually unique having a downsized MILC product.

OK Marty4650 but your list lacks a fourth point : .. what "will be" its real AF performances. So far, Pentax is quite deceiving in this realm; ..

In reply to:

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 DeBari
So, 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 ..

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_bg
you're probably right .. :)

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 ..

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

Direct link | Posted on Jan 15, 2015 at 21:43 UTC

D600 : 87% & GA
D750 : 90% & GA

.. and obviously, in the wake of Nikon's quality control incidents DP reviews' reliability is swinging .. :(
