Illumina: Contrary to 'many' people here that crave for super small and super light cameras, i've always have lust for this type of camera..
Yes i do like to bring smaller camera for simple photo on vacation, but for professional use of course this type of camera is a dream..
'Many' people say that small mirrorless camera are capable of results like big camera, i don't decline it, right now apsc sensor is already very good
But big body have their own advantage.. If it doesn't fit you, why bash it all around saying stupid things? Like good perfume come in small bottle haha..
Or every other people use ISO 100 only.. Then why dont you just use film and shoot ISO 100?
Even iphone shoots more than ISO 100..

To small and to light makes for an unbalanced system when used with prime glass(300,400,500,600 and 800mm's). It also makes it difficult to hold. It seems that everybody on here are becoming whimpy old farts. DP Review is fast becoming less of a trusted site for good quality, honest info on cameras.

Unlimited, NOT a chance. The photographer gets a one time cut of $175, while 500px gets a cut every time their clients use your photo.

Neodp: Oh please. I'm working with an old Nikon DSLR only because of it's price per image quality. Not because of it's bigger size! I am WAITING on Nikon to make something better than the N1 series. One with no-jello video, and manual control.

Make a mirrorless D610 (and D7100) and stop cheaping-out on the sensor. We can tell! Make a smaller camera with all that, and....

Fast refresh side mount EVF-only rangfinder-like (smaller) system and lenses. Like the effort you did on the wrong N1 system.

APS-C improved, would work also; but you might as well go full frame. Sony did.

If you want smaller, buy a cell phone. I want D300 size so I can shoot the F@#$%NG camera with gloves on, it gets cold here in Canada, and mirrorless is still not up to par, period.

Zvonimir Tosic: I read lots of inflammatory responses, and rude comments about the four gentlemen in particular. I ask, why?

In the end, it your — user’s — own doing. You, a user, have a choice, but you seldom exercise your freedom to think and choose. Nikon is a respectable business still, and perhaps it will be better in the interest of their users if they focus on less products to please just everyone (which is obviously impossible), but more customer service and satisfaction in a certain segment.

However, even their current situation is not an excuse for incivility — you might have tried a different manufacturer in your imaging endeavours in the first place, one with less products to market, but offering more user satisfaction.

People are rude because many have a great deal of money invested in Nikon glass and do not want to go to FF. Right now Nikon is upgrading everything except their pro DX camera(D300/s). If Nikon isn't going to build a replacement for the D300/s, then they should put out a statement informing people that they have no interest in the pro DX market. I for one would like to know so I can decide if I should go elsewhere for my next system.

Great interview. At least he didn't try to push some low end BS DSLR cameras like Nikon and Canon. I just wish their lens IQ was on par with the big two. I think a lot of people are fed up with Nikon and Canon forcing their customers to buy cameras with minimum upgrades. Great job Sigma

NIKON, ENOUGH with the BULL S#$T entry level cameras, and release a D300/s replacement. If you can release a niche camera like the DF, you surely can release a much wanted camera like a pro DX (D400).

GPW: My question is, why the hell didn't Nikon release a pro DX (D400) instead of the DF? I think it would have made more sense.

NO it's NOT enough, and I knew I would get dumb ass remarks like yours. DX accounts for a great deal of Nikons profits NOT FF.

I applaud DPREVIEW for their honest review, and not catering to the people who might get upset because it's not what they wanted to hear, it is what it is.

It's a pretty camera though, LOL, LOL, LOL, Nikon makes pretty cameras. WTF have they been smoking over at Nikon these days? Used one for a few days and I think DPREVIEW was quite generous with it's score.

Bottom line is that 3rd party accessories are cheaper for a reason!!! Why take the chance?

GPW: >QuarterToDoom, Let me ask you and everyone on here a question. If you bought a camera and used 3rd party batteries and the batteries damaged the camera, who should be responsible(pay for) to have the camera fixed?

That would be fine, but those things you mentioned would mean more cost to the manufacturer of the camera. Software and quality control to ensure that the 3rd party accessories are up to par. I worked for the auto industry and seen what kind of costs are associated with 3rd party QA.

I agree with Nikon. 3rd party batteries might not be top quality and damage the camera. If I were Nikon I would include this in the warranty. Sorry folks
