RomanP: I don't get what the big deal is here, for the price:
- same body as 610 (except tilt screen)
- same toy-like 4way selector...really inferior to the 810's and 5D's.
- same sensor
- same 6fps. Wait, that's now 6.5fps.
- same buffer! Really, they couldn't double the RAM?

Is it worth an $800 difference between the two models? Yes, better autofocus system, but IQ will be very close, and you won't get more shots at an event than with a D610. It's like Nikon is crippling this model only to queue up a truly high speed 760s next year.

Just see the D750's buffer in glorious action here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1wXGdaNvko

RomanP:

Think of it this way, you have two laptops, with all the same keys and ports in the same place.

But one laptop body has more metal, so is a stiffer, then is a bit more able to withstand spills, has a faster CPU, more RAM, a faster system bus, and a better display screen--more bit depth, yet both share some general outlines.

jtan,

If the buffer clears faster with a fast card that then doesn't make the D610 as fast, the buffer in the D750 is indeed faster.

(Right I get you're saying buffer clearance is faster, to me that's all part of the buffering.)

In reply to:

Ashuaria Lee: Oh..forgot to mention the "Switch over to Raw and it becomes apparent that there isn't much difference in resolution in these sensors" part.

Did they ever SAW the RAW ISO6400 comparison?
The RAW 6400 of mini looks very similar to the SONY body before(Not the new ones). They are smudged and blurry...And the details are lost..

I know that NX-mini and RX-100 has the same sensor..but the RAW comparison results are QUITE different.

Cheng Bao:

Could be, but ChipWorks hasn't aimed their SEM at the sensor.

So get a Samsung NX-mini and an RX100III, take apart, and find a university lab willing to let you use an SEM to read the foundry marks on the sensors.

And the fact remains that Samsung is a serious sensor maker.

RomanP:

No, the D750 is much tougher too.

The raw buffer on the D750 is staggeringly good. So also unlike the D610's buffer.

The D750 is a good bit better high ISO body.

I suggest before going further that you handle both.

You keep getting major points wrong.

Why do you imagine that you're going to score points against people who have used both?

Do you just post to be shouted down?

David Kinston: I just dusted off my D80. (I have D300, D7000, D750).

All modern cameras are great.
Results are 1% camera - 99% you.
The D750 is a brilliant piece of equipment.

IMO anyone who cannot pick up a D80 and be 99% satisfied is not a photographer - just a pedantic nitpicker and whinger.

:P

Do you find occasion to shoot above ISO 800?

How does that work with the D80?

AbrasiveReducer:

But I don't think anyone doubts that Leica (the camera company) was in serious financial trouble in 2004, the point is that Leica is doing well today, 10 years later.

Do I really need to remind you how many people wrote off Apple Computer in 1996-1998?

Now a smallish market, but idiots also wrote off turntables in the mid 1980s. Ha, ha, there.

You do realize that Dell Computer has had to be "propped up" and may not endure?

I'm not celebrating the problems of Nikon or Fuji. Whereas you seem to be celebrating some past problems at Leica.

Josh,

You're right on the card slots. I think I've made that mistake before.

Really. I thought those were Apple stores.

But seriously you really don't know much about photography if you simply dismiss Leica as some boutique camera and lens maker.

SimonOL,

And Sony also has SLRs. Then try mounting an ASPS Nex lens on to the full framed A7, there will be crop problems.

So way to mislead and put claims into my point which weren't there.

And Sony is still far from concentrating on one single mount system and one single sensor size for interchangeable lenses, UNLIKE Fuji.

In reply to:

jkoch2: A fine FF camera. State-of-the art, too, for at least the next six months. Had Nikon engineered the D750 to shoot 4k video from a cropped area of the sensor, plust IBIS, it might have qualified for a 12-month reign, at least.

Po' folk with a stake in both stills and video can't upgrade very often. 4k is s superior tool, even for 1080p video, and anyone who tastes it is reluctant to consider the limits of 1080p for capture, any more than a still photographer would accept only 2mp resolution.

Perhaps Nikon will offer 4k first in its 1" V/J series, to test interest, before deploying it in the FF models, whose disciples include a stodgy cadre of "bah-humbug" videophobes.

Have you tried to edit 4K?

And for now I'm ignoring 4K in the H.265 format.

Also for a minute of recording in 4K it's can easily be a GB of card space, fine. But try uploading that over the interwebs.

I guess you have a point. (Anyhow I was only referring to the camera/lens company.)

Perhaps I should say the rumor is that Leica Camera is making good money for the amount of business they do.

Whereas Canon, Sony, Nikon, Olympus, Fuji, etc struggle.

Leaving Samsung. (And it's unlikely Samsung is making money on cameras/lenses.)

Fine, but Nikon is having a hard time making money, unlike Leica.

RomanP:

Tougher build, very likely more magnesium in addition to the carbon fiber.

Better high ISO noise control, by a good bit. The D750 is one of the few DSLRs where it's sort of possible to use the top ISO. That's ISO 51,000.

Two card slots.

Much, much, much better still photo AF in the D750. HOW MANY TIMES are you going to ignore this repeated point?

A much, much, much bigger plus faster buffer in the D750. HOW MANY TIMES are you going to ignore this repeated point?

Then everything I missed and jtan posted above.

And if you weren't being sarcastic, you'd be taken as retracting in good faith.

Suggestion: Handle the bodies if you can--that's with lenses and installed charged batteries. Lots of things weigh nearly the same.

Rishi Sanyal:

So in ViewNX I opened the D610 and D750 ISO 12,800 DPR studio raws (daylight) and the noise levels aren't even close. The D610's raw is much noisier, a point backed up by extraction ACR 8.7.

I'll go ahead and try CaptureOne V8 too, for now I'll skip DXO since they are a pain about running trialware.

RomanP:

First read Josh,

Then I'm still guessing you've handled neither.

Just the fact of two card slots in the D750 versus one in the D610 is a significant body difference.

I'll be really clear, even if the bodies were exactly the same, which they aren't: The D750 has much much faster and more accurate AF system than that in the D610.

In reply to:

nizar ghosn: how could you justify the better iso performance in the d610 in your comparison line on this page, despite the comparison chart shows that the d750 is better .. and why you have the handling of the d610 is better than the d750 in this page ??? is it ???

HFLM,

Go higher, I don't consider ISO 6400 particularly high for a full framed sensor in 2014.

It's real easy to see if you download the raws.

I think you have point that at ISO 6400 noise isn't a significant problem with the D610--it's that one full stop further is about the limit, whereas the D750 can go higher.

In reply to:

shutterbud: I have a soft spot for Leica, but I really hope the T is a one-off

shutter:

The X-Vario has much slower lens.

I think the point of comparison could be the new X with the 1.7 lens. (Which, yes is cheaper than the T.)

In reply to:

Ron A 19: Seems like the D750 seems to have a sharper image at full resolution, but could this be partly because the Canons are using a lens that is 22 years older? The 85mm USM cannot outresolve the 85mm G (compare them on thedigitalpicture.com). If DPReview wants to compare these two cameras on a resolution basis, why don't they use the same lens on different bodies? A third party reference lens like the Sigma Art or Zeiss otus would be the perfect way to show limitations of a sensor rather than a cheapo circa '92 lens.

sharper than what?

I'm guessing some Canon.

I did check Wikipedia, finding/downloading the original PDF took longer.

You can see Mr Physics below for a repeat of the 1/8000 of sec flash sync preposterousness.

You were free to check the point about 1/8000 sec sync speed in these comments and you clearly didn't.

You really do read all my comments then.
