LR is one of the best, if not the best, photography related sites, thanks to MR mainly.

On article Benchmark performance: Nikon D810 in-depth review (255 comments in total)

Now that we have DPReview review, Nikon can release D820 (or D900?).

Tongki, then let me rephrase what you said to me above:
From what you were saying about "Canon speedlite E-TTL very stupid, always under expose and always tend to use full power" that define you know nothing about flash :)

ozturert: Perfect lens for dentists and reproduction work. Even a walk-around lens maybe instead of 22mm (which is also excellent).

Yake, yes exactly. In fact some dentists use simple mirror systems, some use complex ones. With a, say, 100mm macro lens, it's even slightly more difficult.

Tongki, I know how to use flash don't worry about me :) I just use E-TTL which is good for me 95% of the time. I use manual settings only in multiple flash settings. When I have on-camera flash, I can do most settings from camera anyway.
It's a choice.
Be open to new developments. It's a good thing.

Your calculation is true for 1:1 magnification. With 24MP sensor and flash and a sharp lens, you barely need to focus down to 1:1.
It's good enough for me. Better and lighter than DSLR + ring flash set up.
By the way how many teeth photos have you taken? Some dental institutes even offer Olympus TG3/4/5 because it has macro flash capacity!

Do you always need 1:1.2 production? Will you print a 2-meter poster from your patient's rotten teeth? 9cm is the MFD, how big are your patients' mouths?

Yes Metz's screens are OK. But I want Android-like menus. I'm also aware that this would require more battery power but you don't setup the flash all day :)

princecody: @Barney Raw isn't available for Apple update yet? Also still no Raw update for Pen-F? Why is Apple taking so long? I guess I'm gonna have to pay the $79 LR upgrade to get these Raw updates unless you know an email address for Apple Raw coding team? I called Apple Care & they were useless 😕

DPReview! How can you not talk to Apple!!! How inconsiderate of you!!!

If I need a tripod for pixel shift, I do HDR anyway and it gives me nearly unlimited DR. But then with K1 you don't need post process (albeit more limited DR than HDR) which is a plus.
And plus you get more details in K1's approach.

ozturert: So should we be happy with the fact that they kept selling overpriced equipment (that's how you make profit if number of sales is low) and made big profit out of our pockets?

Let me make it even simpler: I don't care about mechanics in economics, rules of the game etc...
I'm just bothered by paying extra extra. When I hear "Apple has ultra-rocket-high profits", it means they are selling their products expensive, reaaallly expensive. And I pay for it (well, not anymore).
Again: I don't care about market, rivals, opportunity etc..

K1's normal mode is softer than D810 at ISO100. Why is that?

I think I cannot make it simpler: Assume you sell 10 eggs and make 5 cents profit. Next day you sell 5 eggs, still make 5 cents. How is it possible?
I'm not talking about free markets, market conditions etc.. Less products sold, more profit -> Overpriced equipment.
Why are you trying to rationalize this?

Who talked about fairness? I don't care about markets etc..
What I say is simple: They charge way above their costs. Like Apple does. And it seems strange to me that people cheer up when they see corporations make big profits :)
Well OK Sony's profit is nowhere near Apple, but still...

graybalanced, an object is overpriced if you sell it way above its cost. The fact that Sony makes big profit from decreased sales shows clearly that its products (some, not all like A6000) are overpriced.
Same with Canikon actually, Sony is not alone.
There is another BIG HUGE example: IPhone.
