Send your Nikon D750 to me, and I will inspect it. The inspection might take a few years. :-)

In reply to:

Rachotilko: The death of this market segment is several years overdue.

Frankly, does anybody buy these things anymore ?

Sales are down, but Canon forecast that they would sell 9.5 million compact cameras in 2014.

On Nikon D5500 adds touchscreen and flat picture profile article (213 comments in total)
In reply to:

jkokich: $900 for an entry level body?

On the Nikon USA web site, they list the D5500 under "Entry-Level DSLRs"

On the other hand, you have to be pretty "enthusiastic" to pay $1,000 (with kit lens) for a camera. :-)

How *dare* millions of people continue to buy DSLRs, defying the Mirrorless Jihad. :-)

The biggest benefit of new camera models is that they drive down the price of last year's model. :-)

By spring, Pentax may have another new owner. :-)

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1896 comments in total)

Good for Nikon! More than two-thirds or Nikon's revenue comes from cameras, so they can't afford to screw up.

Historically, Olympus' most "innovative" division has been Accounting. :-)

I read it on the internet, so it must be true. :-)

Isn't everything designed for women required to be pink? :-)

(In the USA, they even sell handguns with pink grips.)

In reply to:

justmeMN: Perhaps DPR didn't include the Sony A6000, because they have inside information about a A7000 coming soon.

BTW, I think the A6000 got an award for Worst Kit Lens. :-)

Never mind. I see that the a6000 is included in the "Mid-range Mirrorless Roundup". If you use an a6000, you cant officially be an Enthusiast. :-)

Unlike mirrorless cameras, whey you buy a DSLR, you aren't joining a religious cult. :-)

On Panasonic DMC-CM1 to go on sale in UK article (161 comments in total)

Another possibility:

Demand was poor in France and Germany, so they decided to dump the leftovers in the UK.

Ulfric M Douglas: Surely "close to i's chest" is the term ... who wrote this?

Do a Google/Bing News search of "close to the vest", and you will see that it is also widely used.

Since I don't live in Japan, I don't get excited about cameras that are only available there. :-)

In reply to:

bgbs: This camera is going to drive yet another nail in the Canon's coffin.

Thom Hogan's Interchangeable Lens Camera market share figures, September 2014.

•Canon — 38 to 40%
•Nikon — 33 to 35%
•Sony — 12 to 14%

Talk of "Canon's coffin" is silly.
