Is this a joke?Ya can't just make stuff up "Marco".
Amazing!! a modern manufacturer OF ANYTHING does something for good old fashioned good will toward their customers and pride in their name.Absolutely refreshing and absolutely fantastic.
Good laaaawwd!! that's expensive!
lensberg: DXO might serve as the holly grail for the average Nikon fan... but their "supposed tests" hardly serve as any meaningful purpose in determining which camera / brand is the best from an overall performance point of view...
DXO's only real purpose seems to be that of a proxy for Nikon's marketing department... to give the average joe something "scientific" to go by... Plus they should add a camera quality score... something where Nikon's D600 / 800 would score abysmally... oil spots and dust galore...
Best method of determining which camera is best suited for you is to read a broad spectrum of reviews across the web to formulate your own nonbiased opinions... Or just walk into any camera store and get a first hand account for which body suits your best...
Ok, lets forget about the Nikon full frame models for a second and focus only on the APS-C line up. Actually, let's forget about even THE CURRENT Nikon APS-C line up and compare the previous models against the current Canon lineup. What do we find? even the lowly D5100 completely outclasses the entire Canon APS-C lineup for image quality, and these "tests" are not done only by DXO, they have been overwhelmingly confirmed by every outfit that has tested image quality. Saying dynamic range is not important is like saying DSLR's are not important compared to compacts for image quality. The differences are real, they have practical applications, and they are significant points to consider when choosing a system to invest in. Throw into that mix the excellent Nikon lenses and the hight spec focusing systems (even on entry bodies) and you have a compelling reason for people to go with a Nikon APS-C camera. Defend Canon to the hilt, who cares, but it doesn't change the situation.
Shunda77: Wow! that's an expensive video camera. It's a real shame the stills performance is now MORE than a generation behind.
It just gets worse!!

peevee1: The new 18-140 is 105g heavier than the old 18-135. Is VR so heavy?
No, but better optics are.
You gotta wonder about peoples knee jerk reactions with this sort of thing. Ask yourselves something, if the D400 comes out, what do you think its video capability/targeting will be? How do you think Nikon would make a high end DX body actually pay? Think about it for 5 seconds before you rubbish this lens. It's already better than the 18-105, so what's the damned problem?
Mikhail Tal: $600 for this piece of junk? That's like twice as much as the Canon version.
Wow, perhaps some people need to realize that their personal requirements/bias doesn't actually change the realities of versatility or correct market targeting.
Photography is about compromises, you choose your gear and you makes your choice.
These articles are always written like some revolution is afoot, well sorry, the laws of physics don't change.
What does change is technology and that simply means more choice in choosing your compromise, which is great.
When I want to do Pizza videos, I will buy this camera. *best* *kitchen utensil* *eva*
I wonder if it's the Sony sensor?
Fuji are really doing it, this camera is awesome. Great to see them ironing out their issues and refining their products.
That salmon shirt is just fabulous!!
Shunda77: Because pictures of girls menstruating are just so progressive?
"the future of art is depravity"
The future is bleak.
You guys are amazing mind readers. Ever thought that maybe your narrow perspective/interpretation is what I actually find offensive?It seems to me that the people that most often talk of liberty understand it the least.
Shunda77: All hail blood stained menstrual teenage train riding knickers!! those that refuse to see the beauty in dysfunction shall be burned at the stake!!Their burned corpses shall make magnificent photographic subject matter!!
I'm actually thinking more about the people commenting here than the subject matter. Society is an interesting beast and this fascinates me much more to be honest. The endless obsession with 'shock value' art says much about the society we live in, it is done so much that ironically it has become quite cliche.
I see the photographer in this instance as legitimate and completely innocent, the viewers fawning all over it not so much.It isn't the photographer of the photo's that offend me, it is the narrow minded cliche crap that causes people to gush like geysers.
I just wish there was some pics of human excrement as well, it just doesn't seem like a complete set without some poo too!.
All hail blood stained menstrual teenage train riding knickers!! those that refuse to see the beauty in dysfunction shall be burned at the stake!!Their burned corpses shall make magnificent photographic subject matter!!
I now need to add "statue breaker" to the list.What a wretched individual I am.All hail blood stained menstrual teenage train riding knickers!! those that refuse to see the beauty in dysfunction shall be burned at the stake!!Their burned corpses shall make magnificent photographic subject matter!!
I love these ideological rants, "he hates women", "he hates the homeless" "he thinks the female body is evil".
Yes, it's all true. Because I fail to appreciate the beauty of the bloodstained knickers of a menstruating homeless teenager that rides on trains, I am the Antichrist.
