ozturert: Nikon should have ordered a lot of black dots by now. They will need them for D760, D820, D620, D900, D5...

So you claim that Nikon withdrew ALL D750 stock from retailers for a "minor" problem...

In reply to:

Simple man: How many people here have actually made a camera? Even a simple pinhole camera?

I doubt very seriously that many people have done so. (Yes I have).

How many have completely built a digital camera?

Comparitivly fewer than have built pinholes for sure.( I haven't).

It's just unreal to see constant complaint about everything on this website. Why don't all you people with better ideas get together and build a camera, tripod, backpack, processor, printer......

Nikon is fixing the issue. DPReview made a comment about it. You people complaining about DPreview and its staff. What the hell? It's their house. If you came to my house talking smack..... I'd boot your ass.

You never make a movie, but can criticize one, right?

In reply to:

ChrisH37: I can't help but feel that this has been triggered by a 'patient zero' who just happened to end up in the exact scenario to trigger this in a real world photo. Then the internet happens, it goes on a forum and spreads like crazy...people start experimenting to recreate it and then it snowballs from there.

As the article quite clearly shows the Canon is probably even 'worse', but it never came to light (probably because working pros are mainly using the 1DX who don't spend hours on forums etc).

If that was a big problem for 1Dx, Canon would definitely issue a service press release. Nothing in photography world stays hidden in our age.
Remember 5DMarkIII's light leak issue? It spread like a rocket in forums and Canon released a service message immediately.
All brands may have such QA issues. The important thing is to respect customers, not as Nikon didn't do with D600 but did with D750.

In reply to:

ozturert: This is really fantastic. Dpreview (Rishi) and HowaboutRAW have been trying to defend D750 when Nikon withdrew all D750s from retailers silently and issued a statement saying that they will repair affected cameras.
I think you really need to meet Nikon executives and explain that their efforts are futile and they waste their money and time (which is money again).
I'm also surprised (not joking, serioulsy) that 1Dx users have been unaware of this issue. Or have they been aware and not talking about this for years? Or is it really not the case for 1Dx and bigger issue for D750? This really needs to be investigated. Why has this issue been reported widely for ONLY d750 and not for d800, d810, 1Dx etc..? What can the reason be?
And I cannot understand the logic behind saying "why we think that D750 owners can rest easy" when Nikon offered free fix? Personally I'd not buy a second hand D750 if it's not fixed by Nikon.

Pallke, I have a D800 and V2, and a Canon EOSM. I'm mainly a Nikon user. Still, what I use is irrelevant.

This phrase is misleading: "Even then, you'll be able to avoid it by slightly shifting the angle of your camera."
You cannot do this because you cannot see the effect through viewfinder, and the shot is missed.
The structure of this text is misleading. The title says "no problem at all", the text says "well, it may be a problem but Nikon will fix it". First you give a strong message with big title, then you try to explain in small text.
Same thing you did with 5DMarkIII's AF system comment. First you said "5DMarkIII's AF system is behind its times", then you tried to explain it but the message is already given.

Oh I know I know 1Dx has the same problem...
D760 is a serious joke which Nikon has already made before with D610, remember?

In reply to:

ozturert: Well, Sony needs to remove all AA filters ASAP. These samples are way too soft. Even the ones with Zeiss 55mm. Actually they need to switch to something like Faveon to remove that "smoggy-smudgy" look. I'm saying this to all, Canon-Nikon-Sony-Pentax etc..

Irfanview, browser and XNView. I look at my photos using the same software and they seem much sharper. Not everyone has Photoshop.

DCPhotography, you are trying to "teach" me something but cannot see the full-size JPEGs?

DCPhotography I've looked at full sizes, not downsized versions. If I had RAWs (could not see them) I'd download and see for myself.
"Image displayable on a computer monitor" is how I'll view my pictures, so it matters a lot. Not everyone has 1000$ IPS monitors.
I agree though that the problem may be the JPEG engine or picture style used.
You need to see some Faveon examples to understand what I mean. Even in JPEG, Faveon has incredible clarity at ISO100 (though I'd prefer my D800).

I'm waiting for response of the people who claimed that this was not a big issue in D750 review comments. EVEN Nikon accepted the problem and will repair it free of charge :)
Fanboyism is bad...

In reply to:

ozturert: The only thing that is stopping me to buy one is lack of AF microadjustment. Pentax includes this function in their beginner level cameras.

Otherwise, D5xxx series are really good now with D7000's AF system, articulated screen, 24MP AAless sensor, WiFi etc..

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1828 comments in total)

This is the first topic I've seen in a while that DPR writers are so active, and unsurprisingly the tension elevates from time to time.
Barney and Jeff have been much better to cool off hot comments, I think :)
By the way, search for "contre-jour technique" in Google and see "images". I wonder if D750 would have big trouble in these scenarios.
It's fantastic to see that EVEN Nikon accepts and says that they'll investigate the issue, while some still claim that it's not a biggie at all. Fanaticism goes a long way...

JackM: 5D3's AF is behind the times? LOL. I guess the 1DX's is too then.

It's perfectly OK to point deficiencies, it's just unfair to say "5DMarkIII's AF is behind its times". I don't know how else I can say this more clearly.

Lehik: Whether the flare problem is a real or not, Nikon USA seems to have addressed it:
https://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/19336

Very good move from Nikon. They need to be faster, but still I appreciate what they do. I hope they won't release a D760 instead of fixing the sold D750s.
By the way, HowaboutRAW should write an email to Nikon saying "hey, other cameras have the same problem too! Don't bother!" :)

Plastek: Frozen hell! Nikon got Sony-style tiltable LCD!

Shame that it's only like the one in lower-end cameras, with no swiveling to the sides, but still: progress is progress.

Well done Nikon.

Olympus and Panasonic bodies like E-3, E-5, E-M1, E-M5, GH3 and GH4 all have tiltable screens. Sony's A77 and A99 also... You can actually use E-3 as a hammer, it's that strong :) I don't see the point not to make the screens tiltable in Pro bodies. Canikon has been too traditional about these sort of technologies.
Rishi, I'm still waiting for your list. You'd write down which DSLRs have better AF than 5DMarkIII, so that we can understand the basis of your sentence "5DMarkIII's AF system is behind its times" :)
