Johannes Zander: The only thing I like about this camera is that it uses AA batteries.

Why can't other camera makers build their cameras around standart sized batteries?

^we do have rechargeable AA batteries you know.

Do you mean we can still post from VSCO 00 or any preset that is equivalent of VSCO 01?

Morpho Hunter: Did Sony just do the impossible?

Nope, true the camera is small .. but the lenses (compared to the mft system) are huge (albeit Zeiss fantastic). However I just wonder how this camera will fair (sales wise) when the rumoured Olympus E-M1 replacement, with it's HAND-HELD 40mp sensor shift system is released. More importantly, just how many people out there can afford (or are willing) to pay for those Zeiss lenses .. I mean .. just how often does one blow up a print to the size of a barn door?!!

2 words... Zeiss Batis

Nabilon: I considered upgrading from a D90, though now I'm confused. The top display has less information than the d90 (no white balance), the menu is not customizable anymore, ...
I thought the d7200 was positioned higher than the d90 as its bigger and more expensive!?

Ahhh... the D90, one of the best cameras Nikon has ever made.

Hugo808: I had a go on a Pentax in a shop and it had really noisy autofocus. That was the end of it for me, but are all their lenses missing the ultrasonics of the competition?

@jpino79

Obviously you don't get the idea of the Pentax Limiteds. But instead of making an excuse of "choosing the best lens for the job no matter if it is big and heavy", please do name one DSLR lens that is at the level of the DA15 Limited that has that corner to corner sharpness for a wide lens.

The Limited IQ is not a marketing standpoint, I guess you'll never know until you've shot with one.

Then again comparing the 85mm f1.8G to a Limited lens? We are no longer talking about IQ here or price to performance ratio, you just don't understand the Pentax Limiteds

@jpino79

Is there a wide lens out there for a DSLR that is insanely small and not soft at the corners? Can you name one that is sharp corner to corner at 15mm at F4?

How about the DA50 f1.8 and the DA35 f2.4? Those are good inexpensive prime lens. I've shot with the DA50 f1.8 and I own a DA34 f2.4, they are sharp and has excellent IQ but is no way near my DA40 and DA70 Limiteds.

In reply to:

dodgebaena: I too am not a Pentax shooter but I know friends who swear by Pentax, and have heard glowing testimonials. What I don't understand is why more manufacturers don't incorporate an articulating/tilting/swiveling LCD. After I used one with the Canon 60D (I'm now a Sony a99/a7II/RX10 shooter), I can't see myself shooting without one.

@jpino79

Watch this first then comeback to us.

"But it's the wrong move from Pentax to put their camera bodies with screwdrive lenses at the stores."

Try and use a Pentax Limited lens first then come back to us.

retro76: So just curious dpreview, which camera is the best JPEG maker: Fuji or Olympus ? (or other). I'm lazy and I am tired of processing raw...,

JPG OOC? Fuji, the answer is always Fuji and I'm a Pentax shooter.

In reply to:

lacikuss: Maybe this new d7200 is almost at the 70d level?

I think that the AF tracking speed and accuracy of the D7200 will be much better than the D4S, 1DX and 7DII let alone the 70D but of course the burst will be slower basing on what the D750 can do.

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikon-d750/7

"The D750 inherits a version of the 51-point Multi-CAM 3500FX AF system that we've seen used in the D800 and D810 but its 'II' version is actually more sensitive - rated down to -3 EV on all of those points. The D750 thereby offers superior AF reliability in poor light compared to the D810 and D4S, which is quite something (and which might prompt more than a few D800 owners to 'upgrade' to the D750)."

The D810/D4S: Nikon Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection

In reply to:

Vinnie D: I understand that some might not like the modest incremental updates over the D7100. And this camera may not have every feature one could want, tilt screen, gps, 4K, etc...

But what would you say to those, like me, that are upgrading from a much older camera(D90) and have a nice selection of Nikon DX lenses?

To me it seems like a spectacular upgrade.

That new AF system uses in this camera that betters the D810 and D4S is more than a reason enough to upgrade from the D90.

What is it with all the negativity on this camera? It has the same AF of the D750 which is rated to be better than the D810 and D4S and finally a deeper buffer.

Aside from a bit slower burst rate, just give this thing a magnesium body and you can call this a D400

70D better at AF? This thing carries the AF system of the D750 which is rated to be better even than the D810 and D4S.

Nice video real world review of Sony A6000. It never did feel like a product advertisement since they are reviewing guess what? A Sony camera!

It is also refreshing that a professional who knows what to do with it reviewed the camera and came back with excellent results in contrast to the keyboard warrior posts who probably don't know half the capabilities of their own system. There I said it! :p

Anyway, I hate the horrid EVF of the A6000.

ThatCamFan: Sadly it's noise is still going to be far higher than in Canon & Nikon + Sony, wish it weren't so but they always are more behind than even Canon and that's saying something.

K10D and K20D sensors were from Samsung

In reply to:

Meuh: Is this the same AF as in the k5ii with f2.8 center point and the ability to focus in low light?

Could be and I hope so because of this statement:

3. High-precision autofocus system with SAFOX X module: The K-S2 features the state-of-the-art SAFOX X AF sensor module, which assures responsive, high-precision autofocus operation. With its 11 sensors including nine cross-type sensors in the middle, this AF system assures pinpoint focus on a subject at a minimum brightness level of as low as –3 EV.

Put a FF sensor on the K3 and call it the D700 :)
