Zerg2905: Get used with it. My brand new 50K EUR car "lost" its DSG (hi tech automatic gearbox) after just...409 Km!!! The representative office service was unable to determine the issue, so they asked the factory, and the factory sent a new DSG in a box. I was informed afterwards that an entire batch of those DSGs had various issues, and that many cars were "recalled". One important point: this DSG stuff can be considered mature tech by now. But, if you have technology, you will always have issues. Minor or major.

@Zerg2905...The brand you (don't) mention is one of the most overrated brands. It's almost as if the entire motoring media is in conspiracy to pamper few brands. Don't buy anything less than 5 series from that brand. One can be forgiven for having a "soft spot" for a certain camera brand. But with cars we depend on them to safely takes us from A-B. Yet, time after time media favoured brands fail to satisfy their owners. There are many manufactured myths about car makers both to their unfair advantage or to disadvantage some.

oselimg: As long as there are Brand/Gear slaves and cynical endorsing by websites some manufacturers won't give a penny for quality checks. Instead they will bring out anything to get their current financial shortcomings subsidized by the consumer then will pay it back interest free. That's called free market ethics.

@Daniel...I admire your analogy and logic. If you want to save even more money spend 1K on a more troublesome brand new model, incouraging manufacturers to design ever cheaper models etc. The benefits are huge. Apart from that, lately, it seems design/QC issues have been bothering Nikon more than their major competitors.

DPR is part of a commerce giant. It used to be fairly impartial a source of information for photographic gear.

One more issue for you. If you were aware of the DSG issues would you have paid 50K Euro for a car. Next one: If we didn't have cynical brand endorsing/favouritism by the "reviews" in the "Free media" some brands wouldn't have been able to enjoy the current "success".

Debankur Mukherjee: These design flaws have become a standard for Nikon Cameras, but at least it is nice of them that they are addressing the issue quiet fast........and not denying like they did with the P7000 and D600 bodies........

On Samyang launches 135mm f/2.0 lens for stills and video article (150 comments in total)
In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: The point of this lens is that it is supposed to be a high quality lens without a high quality price. There is no way of knowing if it really is a high quality lens yet. However, its price does look attractive. For movie shooters manual control is all they need.

Was the Canon best one until this one has become available?

oselimg: Dpreview should have learned their lesson by now not to endorse Nikon or any other brand. it's not good for the competition and of course really bothersome for the consumers who buy a product costing near 2K only to find out that the manufacturer didn't bother checking the quality.

I admire your analogy and logic.

@Rishi Sanyal... I never expected Dpreview openly accepting favouritism=endorsment did I? But I can read the small print, subtext etc. Ah one springs to mind "Unwrapping" campaign which was almost sexy. Does any of you guys in the office keep the wrapping papers?

@HowaboutRaw... Howabout D600 oil problem which took Nikon almost a year to "acknowledge" despite countless users reporting it. If you read my comment one more time you'll notice the remark "Nikon or any other brand". Since you brought up the subject Pentax, you fail to notice the "time lag" in reviewing a camera from this brand. Obviously you have soft spot for a certain brand.

One of the most prestigious failings in photography. "The famous red dot" phenomenon :-))

Difference between the results of 7D mkII and D7100 in raw mode is so small I think that when it comes to chosing which camera to have it would be down to each photographers priorities/needs. D 7100 might have slight edge on lower ISO in DR department by comparison but Canon seems to have better colour rendering and contrast IMHO. Lastly, total comparison interms of sensor performance is utterly senseless.

On Real-world test: Nikon D750 at the Museum of Flight article (281 comments in total)
In reply to:

jennyrae: the D750 made the 7D MK2 laughable.and I'm not even fond of Nikon but am a Canon user. now that tells a lot of what Canon failed to provide. unless this D750 camera would turn up just like the defective D600, the 7D MK2 is extinct.

also, no troll by the name of Karl is allowed to reply to my comment unless he starts behaving like a grown up.

If your comment is of a grown-up person we don't need childish trolls.

Hasselblad goes in to denial stage. This is the proof that they are in depression.

It seems from the comments that Canon've managed to gather the "mirrorless" crowd in one place. Now there is one more thing left to do...
