Sigma and Nikon for a product of 2014. Together. After all, both are needed for a photo-taking pleasure.
Photoman: Would a Mirrorless Nikon fix this?
It should. no AF sensor at the bottom of the camera, no "sharp edges" that need to be properly covered, no refracting / semi translucent mirror. I think AF is done "on a sensor".
dedication and focus... outstanding.
Very nice. The sharpest set of samples I have seen in a long long time.
Karl Summers: This camera wasn't ready to be released prior to Christmas, yet Nikon did it anyway before the camera was thoroughly tested for defects. Now there is a major recall and Nikon is taking a huge hit for it. The company has poor leadership. I remember a poster stating the Canon 5D Mark III had the same issue, yet I don't remember a major recall for that camera.
I don't need the constant headaches that Nikon inspires. Canon may not have the latest greatest sensor tech, but at least I can rely on my camera.
And one more thing, this is what you get for buying the first incarnation of a new product line...suckers.
Completely disagree with you. canon used to purposefully cripple camera performance in firmware. Their focus system is incapable of achieving consistently accurate focus with anything but a single lens. Even the micro-adjust can not fix the focusing issues with zoom lenses. To achieve accurate focus at both ends with canon zooms, the body has to go to their service department for an adjustment in software.
Nice move from Nikon. Definitely the correct approach after 600/610 debacle. Well done.
So, Canon is more skilfully in deceiving you to believe their cameras are fault free, and you are thanking them for that???
Jwala: People are just going crazy, crazy and crazy hunting bright light sources and trying to be reproduce weird flares and thereby deriving pleasure in blaming Nikon :-)Some are complaining that their images were ruined!!! This is not a film-SLR, it is DLSR!!! Images can be instantly reviewed on 3.2" LCD!!!Wait while Nikon fixes the issues.Until then shoot good pictures. Don't go mad about reproducing the issue. We do not shoot such shots in our normal photography.Some others are taking this as an opportunity to troll DSLRs and brag mirrorless. Gosh, is this what we really are??????
It is a tricky flare to see if you are taking sequenced series of photos during sport action, wedding or a celebration in general. Also, it does not show in standard pre-view.
The troubling fact is that a fine photographic apparatus should not have this kind of issue where certain number of AF sensors are assembled / aligned correctly in their bottom chamber, and the other fair few are not. This should not happen with semi-pro FF body.
Otherwise, an outstanding FF achievement from Nikon. I am sure they'll come up-front this time and do something about it.
Digital Mike0697: Has anyone notice there is a problem with lens flare on D750? Nikon Rumors, is stating there is a problem. I want to know before I buy the camera.
It seems like a genuine manufacturing tolerance issue, which if proved correct, will be devastating for Nikon
Boky: Out of the whole group, comparing like-for-like cameras of a similar cost, the D7100 strikes the best blend of fairly admirable results. Dynamic range looks good, details look good, dynamic range allocation to shadows and highlights also look appropriate...
I know - however, the highlight control, and the shadows' level of detail look best with D7100, albeit in raw mode - which is what I checked, what I use and what interests me. The difference is, however, minute and would mean nothing for a day-to-day shooting, compared to other cameras. I would in fact choose Nikon for entirely different reason - focusing accuracy and repeatability, and a similar lens selection compared with Canon.

Zeisschen: who cares about DSLR? Are they still selling them?
they do. to people who invested in lenses.
all really good; #13 magical!
jonrobertp: Best pocket camera hands down. Period. The biased pundits are out to lunch. Amateurs pretending to know irrelevant stuff. None of the critics know how to make images of quality that sell in the marketplace but think they know ? Gimme a break. Get some coffee.
excellent capture, well done!
