On Nikon D810 Preview preview (971 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 (634 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...

How could the interviewer not ask about the D400 DX that so many of us are waiting for? Lack of interest in respresenting this website's Nikon client base? Am certainly not amused DPReview!

With so many folks eagerly awaiting the D300 / D300s DX upgrade, I am very surprised that the interviewer made no mention of the D400.

In reply to:

VivaLasVegas: Holy smokes.....a built-in wifi+GPS tagging that is accessible via cellphones. Damn this is sooo futuristic! D600 can tooo, but it'll COST you $$$$ and it's stuffing is hanging out of its body like x-mas lights......just ugly.

6D=Apple look
D600=Android look

Admit it, the Nikon D600 has better specs!
