On DPReview in Cologne: We're at Photokina! article (13 comments in total)

Seems to have turned out to be a non event and meaningless as new releases are announced or leaked beforehand

Just curious why you would buy a D610 now that the D750 has come along?

No worries about that tilting screen mechanism failing

DP review have been flipping it non stop for the last 36 hours and it still looks as good as new.

On Fast and full-frame: Nikon announces 24MP Nikon D750 article (406 comments in total)

At last something to make me go FX and hopefully a camera that will give the Canon 5D a run for its money.

Nikon Full Frame cameras up until now have been a bit like Goldilocks and the Three bears

NikonD810 Too much
Nikon D610 not enough
nikon D750 just right

Let this be a lesson to all DP readers should we ever decide to venture away from our monitors and take some pictures. Be careful out there and just in case I have started a thread on what is the best type of footwear in terms of grip. These slippers I am wearing are just not up to it.

whilst I am on the subject what is the best camera that will fit into a pyjama pocket?

In reply to:

mosc: Can someone explain the alure of a 80-400 4.5 to 5.6? You can get a 70-200 f2.8 and a 2x teleconverter for that. Covers 70-200 at 2.8 and 201-400 at f5.6. Just seems very expensive.

Johannes Zander: Did you know this one:

Did you hear about the lawyer on vacation whose sailboat capsized in dangerous, shark-infested waters?

He surprised his traveling companions by volunteering to swim to the far-off shore for help. As he swam, his companions were startled by the appearance of two dorsal fins -- great white sharks, heading straight toward the lawyer.

To their surprise, the sharks allowed the lawyer to take hold of their fins, and escorted him safely to shore.

When the lawyer returned with help, his companions asked him how he had managed such an incredible feat. The lawyer answered, "Professional courtesy."

Could also replace Lawyer with Real Estate Agents
