At least make it weather-proof. This lens is really cheap if Otus is your reference point. But then Otus is extremely-insanely expensive, so wrong reference point.
Mirrorless bodies are progressively looking like DSLRs. Then, why do we have mirrorless cameras at all? Do 2 dials and sharper corners make the large mirrorless cameras very different from DSLRs?
A D610 with corners?
Nikon must callback all D600s and give back D610, and maybe charge 100-200$ for exchange. Terrible, really bad move by Nikon.
For 1500$ you could get D600 or 6D when there is sales. "Small-light body and lenses" do not count always. 1400$ is way too much. Heck, you have D7100 for 1150$!And I have an EM-5 as my 4th m4/3 body :)
Q series is even a worse joke than K-01. Go buy a real toy to play instead, and continue to take pictures with your phone.Not much smaller than E-PM2 or a Nex with 16-50mm, but with a tiny tiny sensor.
Any compact/bridge camera with 14 and more MP belongs to garbage. They don't take photograph they take waterpaint pictures.
Sony, listen to me: 18 and 20MP sensors are rubbish! They create the worst images I've seen. Blown highlights, noise even at base ISO, terrible per pixel details... Please stop cheating the users with these useless sensors and continue to develop 12MP sensors.
Very good but overpriced
Excellent. Now you know which lenses will mostly get the highest "Perceptual MPix" scores (hint: Nikon). Just a guess :)
coudet: Typical - 80% of the pictures show human suffering.
80% of the pictures people suffering, and 10% of them shows one of the responsibles :)
Shamael: this page layout is weird. Press grey review on top, you come to main page, press red review, and you are on a review listing, press Sony and you get Sony cameras. So, on the end you have to press "Click here to read ...."
That is now a few years that I am bored by this "turn around 7 corners" to reach what I want. Why could there not be this "Click here....." on the main page. When you click there, you end on the comments page, the one we are on here. Then you have to press another button to continue. What is that good for.Not all people on this globe have 1 gb second flat rate Internet. I live in the jungle and here I need 5 minutes to open DPR.
Agreed %200. You go to a page to read the review, but it seems that you need to click again to reach the actual review. Is this to increase number of hits? I cannot think of a logical reason behind this.
BBC should also reveal fake war photos and news from Irak, Syria and Afghanistan. These kinds of photos are used for leverage, unfortunately.
I think the score must be lower until Nikon finds a real solution for dust issue, then it can be increased. Dust after a couple of shots is a real showstopper for an otherwise excellent camera.
zodiacfml: I guess the sensor dirt/spots problem is due to Nikon's decision to rush the product, months ahead of the competition where design, testing, and manufacturing all have been accelerated outside their usual specs.
Richard, have you seen "I guess"?
1) I think it'd be better to put smaller objects (like furry objects) to as middle as possible because lense's performance will affect the corner objects greatly.2) What are those photos on the right-top for?3) It'd be perfect to create some shadow areas to see dynamic range and behavior of the camera in shadows under good light.
teddyilagan: I'm a long time fan of DPR, but recently it starts to irritates me. This post should show us the sample pictures of D600, what annoys me is that it took 5-6 steps before I can actually see the sample pictures.
Correct. I click a link and then I need to find the right link again and click again? It's like newspapers' web sites which try to make you click as many as possible to increase the site's number of hits.
puneetvikramsingh: ISO performance is one stop better than my Nikon D5100....
And you can decide this by looking at the pictures only?
marike6: As a saxophone teacher, when my students ask me to recommend a sax for them to purchase, I'll always suggest the best saxophone they can afford. But never do I suggest a synthesizer sax or a clarinet, even though technically they all play musical notes.
To push an ILC in a DSLR review is not only a random, from left field recommendation, the basis for which it is made - that most DSLR beginners compose with LiveView - is a faulty assumption. Unless you have your DSLR on a rig for video, LiveView is a secondary feature on a DSLR.
But the reviewer seems to be inserting his own personal preferences into a supposedly objective review. Sure slower LiveView performance have been criticized in previous DSLR reviews, but I don't ever remember a conclusion discounting a DSLR (one that Nikon obviously worked very hard on) for not having the same LiveView performance as an ILC.
Some readers actually share the writer's ideas, so it's useful to note that downside in the reviews.
It's not only the liveview performance, but weird liveview behavior is showkiller for me. I have a D700 and I'm sometimes cursing Nikon when I need LV for macro shots. It's purely terrible compared to Canon or Sony. They say D800 is better than d700 but still worse than 5DMarkII which is considered old now.If you are not using LV you should ignore DPR's comment, still it was useful to me.
