On article Setting new standards: Nikon D5 Review (419 comments in total)
In reply to:

GabrielZ: I was disappointed when I first heard of the low base ISO dynamic range of this camera's new FF sensor, I thought it would have the highest DR of any current FF sensor available as Nikon's are usually very good in that department. Personally I'm much more excited by the D500 than the D5.

@Lea5 - Yes I know, but this is a new flagship model with a clean sheet sensor design by Nikon, the DR should of been class leading like it is on the D500.

Michael Oersigh: Nice review, but it seems to me that the D500 is a better allrounder at almost the same level of the D5, with the exception of build quality and better battery build. As for IQ, the D5 easily beats the D500 in action sistuations, but I rather go with D500 than the 810 or 750 or 7200, because it's half a dozen of one or the other and none of them are perfect and the D500 has added abilities that overcome it's one IQ flaw.

I'd like Nikon to release a new 'D900' prosumer FF with all the added capabilities of the excellent D500...that would be my perfect DSLR!

ZC Lee: Please, Apple engineer. Buy ZF3 Deluxe, learn how to design Antenna.

Just what I was thinking! Asus can make antenna lines completely disappear on a full metal jacket smartphone but Apple can't? And while the mess of those antenna bands on the iPhone 6 series are going to be considerably reduced on the upcoming iPhone 7, from the leaks that I've seen, there still going to be visible on the top and bottom rear edges of the new design...yet another example of the once smartphone leader Apple falling behind the technological curve.

Wow...didn't realise SanDisk was worth so much.

Peter62: The D500 has no chance against the Fuji X-E2 !

Just try the following, it's the best way to evaluate sensors:

Use DPREVIEWs phantastic Image Comparison Tool.
Switch to LOW LIGHT.
Set ISO 12800 (i.e.).
Compare Fuji X-E2 and Nikon D500.
Buy the Fuji. Forget the overpriced D500.

I have an X-E2 and like it. But my enthusiasm for the camera and brand has been dampened recently. I bought mine about a year and a half ago, so its still quite new. But a couple of days ago while doing some night photography I noticed a burnt sensor pixel that stands out like a sore thumb! it wasn't there before. And I'm a bit peeved by that! It indicates bad quality control, which I wasn't expecting from Fujifilm. My previous Canon EOS-20D DSLR I used for nearly a decade before switching to the X-E2 (needed something lighter and more compact) never had such issues and even today is still in perfect working order. When I'm able to upgrade again, because of the sensor issue (and poorer quality control of their newer lenses apparently) I might go back to DSLRs despite the increased weight and size, from one of the two big brand names. After reading the review here, Nikon and its D500 is now the front runner!

The guy in the video looks like a serial killer or is that hipster art posing? LOL! Seriously though despite the video being recorded from a 1.5X crop of a cropped 1.5x APS-C sensor, the quality looks pretty decent to me. And light years ahead of previous DSLR efforts.

91%! I think that's the highest score DPReview has ever given to a camera.

GabrielZ: Apple's also going B&W with an upgraded Music interface too, I believe. Its going to be introduced at the WWDC next month.

It doesn't really. Its just that I read about the Apple thing very shortly before reading this. So made a tenuous connection...end of story.

B&W as in black and white /monochrome...not the speaker manufacture!

What I've read about the K1 is very promising. But putting that aside for a moment...this is just the best looking FF-DSLR out there!

alcaher: Im gointo to buy the d500 but i also want so badly the K-1, Forget about those digital medium format big boxes.

This two cameras are going to be the best two dslrs of 2016.

I've been mirrorless for a couple of years now and don't regret it. But if I had enough disposable income (I don't!) I'd seriously be considering a K1 and D500. I've been really impressed by what I've seen and read about them so far...the DSLR seems to be making a serious comeback with these two!

Impressive! And with pixel shift enabled quite stunning! Good on Pentax.

Aren't smartphone camera reviews supposed to be on the Connect sister site? Has it been incorporated into DPReview?

In reply to:

AksCT: Leica today proudly announced the first accessory for M-D (Typ 262) camera; an external display that can be connected to the camera via special add-on, to be installed only by Leica factory. Display will have VGA resolution and will ship in 2017.
Press release states that "With inclusion of ubiquitous LCD screen, photographers 'must' surpass the principles of photography and beyond. Display will have a novel built-in mechanism that prevents chimping. It also does not allow photographer to retake the picture of the same scene after the previous picture is displayed on the external monitor".
When asked who was responsible for the design of M-D (Typ 262), Leica's new Head of Bizarre Innovation (HBI) responded that "former Head of Backward Innovation (HBI) is no longer with the company and is pursuing his personal interest in pinhole photography."

It is also rumored that in future Leica may increase resolution of external display to XVGA and later on embed it in camera by 2025.

Nice one! Lol

marmotto: Leica are wonderful cameras, their manufacture is the best like a lot of german products, and optical quality is great (not the best, but great).
I know this... in the seventies (16 years old) i looked at them through the windows of the shops (sigh).
This is the plus side.
I don't like that their target is an arian (possibly :-) ), male, middle age, rich (very rich) and narcissistic and exhibitionist man that make the same photo of mine but with a lot of bucks or euros.
We can exclude Cartier Bresson and similia because at that time pro cameras were all the same price (Speed Graphic, Contax, Leica, Rolleiflex, Rectaflex, Janua etcetera).

I love photos and always look at the best photographer but the japanese cameras in my books have a ratio of one to ten with Leica (from sixties then on), Nikon and Canon in primis.

Arian male? What century are you living in? Just say 'white guy' if you must. We're not in the bloody third reich anymore! And as FujLiver said the far-eastern Asian market for such cameras is larger than the 'white guy' one.

In reply to:

love_them_all: Would have been perfect for me if it has wifi and a EVF port. That way if I can access the menu via the EVF, or proof exposure on a phone or tablet, if needed.

BTW would this camera be as thin as the film M's? I used to hate the digital M because they are too thick :)

The WiFi idea is a very good one. Its discrete, off camera and doesn't effect the 'concept' of this camera. The EVF port though..not so much.

The thickness of this camera without the screen is a good point too. I hope its thinner as well, but I somehow doubt it. I also agree with you in that the excessive thickness of the latest digital M's is really off-putting.

FujLiver: I had a look at one of these in real life. What a beauty. there is something strangely appealing about a camera with no buttons on the back. Just concentrate on the photograph, aperture, shutter speed and focus. Like its supposed to be. no menus. Just raw output, etc.
The build is stunning. Like jewellery. I can see real pride of ownership.
BTW this is different from the 262, it has a brass top, not an aluminium one. Makes it heavier but nicer ...

I like this camera too. If I had that much disposable income lying around I might even purchase one for all the reasons you just said. But its digital and not providing a means to see your digital images on your digital camera just seems rather odd to me.

In reply to:

princewolf: Every product has its own positives and negatives and I don't think we should make the whole company responsible for one bad product, which this clearly is. If this camera was priced lower than the standard M262, because the loss of an LCD DOES warrant a fall in price, it could be a winner. But pricing it MORE than the camera that DOES have an LCD? Come on. As another poster noted, why not limit the frame no to 24, and while you are at it, make the raw files inaccessible for one day(development time) to give the feel of retro? I am beginning to believe that Leica has started snatching marketing boys/girls from Lomography. Their motto: Sell less for more! Ok customers are sheep and all, but even then...Oh, and I will not bother reading your negative comments, but if you have a lot of free time who am I to judge?

@FujLiver - That makes more sense.
