Sure, if you wait long enough, there's bound to be some sort of technological breakthrough!

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1575 comments in total)

Wonder as to when we can expect an in-depth review of the D810. Afterall the preview was in July and it is now... October! There was a time that DPReview "shined" in this respect. Just an observation...

On Nikon D750 First-impressions review preview (1422 comments in total)

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)

Not so difficult to see that it concerns a Great White shark. Photos taken in South African Waters? Nice series!

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1575 comments in total)

The possibility of a prosumer DX camera being launched is preventing me from deciding to buy the D810. Just wish Nikon would at least inform us in respect of their DX-strategy!
We D300/s owners have been waiting now for such a long time...

A typical Nikon response... Nikon, for heavens sake please review your marketing & PR practises! Communication to your past and present loyal customer base is dismal to say the least!

On Nikon D610 preview (627 comments in total)

I don't think Nikon has done their existant D600 a favour by introducing the D610 under a cloud of technological secrecy. Coulden't have been a worse investment due to extreme devaluation of the D600. Also compounded by a reduction in retail price of the D610.
Nikon should have offered more transparency in respect of the oil spill fault and to rectify their reputation, should have offered D600 a free D610 replacement.
Glad I don't own the D600 as I would have been terribly frustrated...
