On Nikon announces SB-500 Speedlight for stills and video article (26 comments in total)

Dumb question, but can I use the SB 500 as a slave (either with the pop-up as a master or some other external flash)?

Isoruku: Scene modes?? Really? Scene modes?

OK, I was being perhaps a bit too snooty/sarcastic. Couldn't help it. I think part of the problem is marketing. Who is this camera for? Nikon can't seem to build an affordable (less than $2K), simple, rugged pro camera - either DX or FX. It's possible that I might buy a D750, but I wish Nikon had offered something that was in a new, distinctive niche.

Mihut Ovidiu: The Canon EOS 7D Mark II will be available in November body-only for $1,799.

Nikon D7100 24.1 MP DX-Format CMOS Digital SLR (Body Only) - $1,096.95

Perhaps the significant price difference make room for the Nikon D9300 ....

Only game in town? Almost, although Pentax K3 seems to fit the criteria. Not sure I like the noise or the color rendition, but it's a very robust and capable camera.

Hauer: Dear Nikon,

Can you please advise your loyal customer base what your strategy is in terms of the DX-format???

As far as I'm concerned an official statement is very long overdue!

My conclusion thus far is that Nikon's communication is poor and that very little notice is taken from its customers.

Yours sincerely,
Herman Auer (D50 & D300 user)

Dear Hauer, I agree completely.A statement from Nikon re DX pro bodies (and no JDThomas, the D7100 is not an "answer") would be most welcome.

Isoruku: 910 grams??! Might as well get a D750.

OK Dr_Jon, good points. I just wish it weighed a lot less. And had a better sensor. I've been waiting for a 7D or D300s successor for a long time and was hoping for something a bit more daring.

So Saul, I assume you will never read DP Review again, is that right?

Dear Jeff Keller: the word you want at the end of "body and design" section is "simple" - not "simplistic."

jake werner: I can't take cameras without viewfinders seriously.... even Nikon. Just not practical on bright days. When are the manufactures going to learn.

I agree with Jake. While the P7700 seems on paper like a great camera, the lack of a VF really deters me from considering it. Nikon sees that consumers love live view and then deletes VF's from an otherwise very useful pocket camera.
