Steve in GA: The high quality of these photos make me wonder:

If Nikon APS-C has gotten this good, why would I ever want to ditch my current Nikon APS-C gear and move to full-frame?

Because Nikon FF is 2.5 times as good?

HowaboutRAW: It would be nice if there were some 20k-30k ISO shots for direct comparison to the likes of the Fuji XPro2--albeit the Fuji doesn't allow for 1/3 ISO stops above 12,800.

Fuji inflates ISO number so Fuji ISO 12,800 is really ISO 8000.

bwoodahl: After shooting with my D500 for five days, I can say that Nikon hit this one "out-of-the-ballpark". There's some magic in that 21 mp crop sensor that reminds me of film, but I'm not sure what it is. (Did I say crop sensor?)

SONY?

Peiasdf: Huge body, huge lens, tiny sensor. I know where Olympus got their designer for E-M1

I would say maybe you are right but then Canon came out with G7 X that's smaller, bigger sensor and wider with equally fast lens.

E-M1 have the same problem. A7R II is the same size so Olympus could either make it smaller or fit more in.

Artpt: Who had the creative liberty to introduce the video presenter with a back to front twirl....and background music.....

Excellent video with camera information...thanks to all.

I find that just idiotic. I feel DPreview is hardcore review and no need to do things like that. DigitalRev would do something like that and maybe TheCameraStoreTV on special occasion but DP is more professional.

Retro1976: Well good new for Canon. I just sold my Fuji gear. Been round the block Olympus, Sony, Fuji and now I'm returning back to a DSLR. Why you ask ? I miss the nice grip, the intuitive menu system, the fast accurate focusing, the ever growing array of killer third party lenses and the week long battery life. Trust me I love mirrorless and will miss many aspects of the bodies I have used, but no one yet to had figured out how to make small without compromise.

As a Fuji user for the last 3.5 years, yes, Fuji has a way of turning people off mirrorless. I moved to Panasonic to get away from the idiotic design and UI

In reply to:

djwuk: Just got my D7200 last week. Given that the camera is wifi capable, is it possible to download the update via wifi, would be a sensible way to do it, rather than saving files to memory cards

There is a reason iOS, Android, Window OS, Blackberry didn't come out of Japan. Japanese cannot code sh!t.

So I went to Espen Rasmussen (The Curse of Coal. 1st Place, Daily Life)'s website looking for back story for that photo and guess what? He is featuring migrants and Ebola on the front page. I got a feeling most of these photojournalists know what type of photos sell and get awards so they put misery out front.

Aaron801: Frankly all of the criticism of the "suffering and misery" shots here is pretty depressing. It seems to me that a competition like this is in a sense about telling stories about the world around us. Since the world is unfortunately full of suffering and misery a collection like this is going to reflect that. With these documentary categories being all about documenting the world around us, do folks thing that this is all going to be pretty? I think that perhaps there a re a lot of folks who are really clueless about how much of the world lives. Those of us on a site like this are mostly a very privileged few and we need to realize that much of the rest of the wold is living in much more dire circumstances...

@Aaron801
Do you see happiness in any of these photos beside Eagle Hunters? The Eagle Hunters are smiling because they are doing something they love and trained hard for. We are uplifted seeing someone succeed and doing what they love because we want to be the same... doing hard work will bring us happiness.

Any info on the gears used? D4 and some fast lens?

I still don't think I have ever heard of Prince's music since I didn't even know he existed until 5 years ago. Still, I heard a lot about his influences on pop music.

ybizzle: Exactly the reason why I have the new LG G5. Wide angle lens built in without the need for bulky add ons.

That camera is 8mp and fisheye-ish

Footage please. I want to see how impressive it is. Super excited "enhance" may be real.

Not gonna believe Huawei on this. It also said Nexus 6P is all aluminum which turn out to mean aluminum cover on plastic.

Hopefully camera won't be expensive for a few years like hard drive was after the flood in Thailand years ago.
