kirkyphoto: SRP in America is $2000 for body only but pre orders in UK at £1729. Bit of a disconnect there??

Has nothing to do with warranties. Nikon warranty service here in Canada is just as bad as it is in other countries, and a D810 is selling for only $300 dollars more than the D500 here in Ontario right now.

Made my own. Went to Bass Pro Shop, got a pair of warm gloves and cut the fingers that I use to operate the camera controls. I had a beer while I sewed the edges where I cut, and there you have it.

GPW: I see nothing in the sample images that I can't do with my Nikon D7200 and a Nikon 70-200, and for a fraction of the price.

My comment was that I can get images as good as the images that I viewed on this site that was taken with the Sony a7R ll with my Nikon D7200 and my Nikon 70-200 lens. You should get educated in believing that a FF camera is the "be all end all" format for photography. I have see a lot of crappy photos taken with FF cameras. A camera is just a tool to help a photographer to achieve/express a moment in time. If you think that you can only get great photo by only using a FF camera, then you sir really don't understand photography. Your still an IDIOT

With so many adjustments to get to the final result, it's actually Adobe's photo that the photographer made, NOT photographed. Shows lack of true photography skills IMO.

On article Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review (1318 comments in total)

As I said before, to bad Canon didn't use a Sony/Toshiba sensor in this camera. IMO the D7100 has better IQ then the 7DMKll. With that said, if I didn't have so much Nikon glass, I would have jumped ship to this camera in a heart beat as I only shoot wildlife photos.

Mirrorless may outsell DSLR's for soccer moms but not for serious photographers

On article Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path (1593 comments in total)

My upgrade path is from a D7100 DX to a pro DX, not to a FF camera. Why do I have to settle for less FPS, smaller buffer, build quality, and autofocus because I want to shoot with a DX camera? Is my money not the same as a FF shooters money? Am I not as important a customer as a FF shooter? At this point in time Nikon is saying NO you are NOT because you shoot a DX camera.

BarnET: How on earth did the 100d win best entry level.

Compared to to the k50 it has

No weather sealing
Worse sensor
No ibis
Smaller viewfinder
Worse ergonomics with less direct control.
Slower burst speed
For more money. $650 vs $550

Compared to the Sony
Worse sensor
Smaller viewfinder
Slower burst
No tilty screen
And again more expensive

Compared to Nikon d3300
Larger with kit-lens
Significantly worse sensor
Worse video no 60fps 1080p

Dpreview crew again you give credit to an camera that recycled old parts (sensor, processor, AF system are 4-5 years old or older) and gave it recommend. This is no buying advice.

This is misleading for getting revenue.

Who the hell in their right mind would buy a camera based on DPR? You would have to be insane!

"As mentioned above I have a great deal of money invested in Nikon glass and I want to stay with the DX format". This is a quote from my original post, take a look for yourself.

What is your point? I already stated I want to stay with the DX format. Why the hell would I pay $2500+ tax(Canadian) for a FF camera and use it in DX mode?

Was referring to the DF not D750. K3 doesn't work with the $10.000 worth of Nikon glass I have. There's a backward thinking mentality that DX users have to accept just an "ok" buffer, fps, af and build. WHY can't I as a Nikon DX customer have the "BEST" af, fps, buffer, and build in a DX camera? As mentioned above I have a great deal of money invested in Nikon glass and I want to stay with the DX format. I know Nikon didn't force me to invest in their product, but I did because they had an excellent DX line. Right now I feel that Nikon is saying to me "Sorry about your luck buddy, we got your money now F@#K off" or go FF. Not a good way to keep customers.
