Maybe Nikon should use the remaining R&D budget to produce fewer but more exciting products.
quezra: In the buying guide article about high end cameras, people were complaining about the D4S omission... but yet none of these people seem to be voting for it here...
The idea is that people can vote for the camera they have. :-)
AngularJS: WTF? Where is the Otus 85? I've spend $4300 for an nonexistent lens! :)
It says enthusiast lenses.
Another old Minolta/Sony lens re-released with the exact same optical formula, a new badge and a higher price. If anything, this is proof of Sony squeezing the last drop of profit from Alpha shooters without making any significant investment.
Jane79: Does the DPReview editorial team have any information about not yet announced Canon products? (under NDA obviously)

Jane79: Lars, could you post the tag that has to be used in the new "homepage personalization" section of the account settings to not get any Connect related news on the homepage? "phone-news" and "connect" do not work. A list of all working tags would be even better! Thank you so very much!
I did. A week ago. No reply from DPR.

Jonathan F/2: Nice ad (masquerading as an article) to help bolster Amazon pre-orders.
There's a huge bright section below the article with Amazon preorder links for both the camera and the filmmaker kit. But DPR is part of Amazon, that's no secret, so the links are OK in my opinion.
Very nice portrait!
Everybody had to accept the much lower battery capacity of the D4 because of some Japanese regulation and now it's suddenly possible to make a battery of the same size for a camera of the same size with much larger capacity? Did Japan change the regulations once again? Can the new EN-EL18a be used in the D4?
I used to watch your videos with Lilian and the ones about your mum and how you came about to wear a fro, one of those made me cry. Your videos about photography are nice too, so is the sniffing test. However, I've stopped visiting your site because it takes very long to load, there's way too much stuff on it. Simple, quick and clean, sometimes less is more. It works for Google! :-)
DPReview should really refrain from posting rumours and speculations to generate website traffic. You already know everything and probably have the camera in your hands; pretending to speculate is silly, to put it lightly.
bossa: The night shot on the official samples page doesn't show point sources for the street lights. They are all triangles and sheared. There's also lots of blue fringing around lots of the lights (purple fringing).
Looking at the portraits the lens doesn't seem as contrasty or sharp at f/2 as one would like. My DA*55 seems better.
I'll take a look at one when they are available though as I love my 35/1.4 G despite what people say about it.
Yes, the lights in the corners in the night shot are not so good, and that's at f/2.0.
Paul Petersen: But will it out resolve the much cheaper Sigma 35 F1.4? I know they are different focal lengths but just saying.
No, the lenscore guys/gals test lenses on a super hirez cam (200MP iirc), and unlike dxo, they don't test lenses provided by manufacturers.
22 lenses currently outresolve the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM in the lenscore database, including a number of Zeiss lenses. I think it's safe to assume that this lens will outresolve not just the Sigma 35mm but most other lenses as well.
Hamburg Speicherstadt, probably one of the most photographed places in Germany. Beautiful picture!
Why is the 100D not in the Gold Award section of GearShop?
It would be cool if the pics were real.
