tongki: on 1st page saying,
"The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is the company's latest flagship camera."

Oh, come on, dpreview !
You hire a bunch of kindergarten kids to wrote things like this ?!?
This is like talking a bunch of nonsense to people on the crowd,
and saying that we are a bunch of fool who doesn't know that 1DX is flagship camera !

The price already represent this camera position

You can ask anyone who don't know about cameras and they will tell the same story

tongki: Maybe information is not correct,
But Sony acquire Zeiss and Minolta, right ?
Zeiss lenses and Minolta with G series lenses
So, the new G master is adopted from Minolta technology ?

Oh, a good idea for Sony new lenses

G Master for the new lenses
And new accessory for carrying the new lenses

a G STRING !

JacquesBalthazar: These sure look sweet, in design as well as specifications! They do beg for a larger flagship FE body, designed to balance with such lenses, with better ergonomics than the A7II line (I just hate the haptics of those cameras anyway).

These G lenses would make Minolta proud... :-)

It is also interesting to note that, in the FE world, the Zeiss brand suddenly becomes a "mid-range" option from a price perspective. Shows a lot of confidence from Sony !

If I were starting from scratch, I'd seriously consider FE now....

Sony are focussing on their lens divisions because they acquire Zeiss and Minolta

But photography is not just a matter of great lenses,
It includes everything, body design, menu, response and LIGHTING

I don't see Sony serious on lighting matters

When Sony acquired Quantum flash, I might consider Sony line up, when I see Sony already improved on AF performance

In reply to:

Robert Holloway: As an ex Canon user I worry for them. I am sure this camera is an evolution and will be well received by pro sports shooters. I cannot imagine anyone outside that group being excited about this as a new piece of kit.

I have no idea if it will pull Nikon shooters into the canon fold, I doubt it, when the cost of changing is considered.

I'd love to hear why someone would leave the Canon 5D path and jump into this, versus wait for the 5D4. I doubt it.

I shot Canon for 37 years and this feels like a dinosaur for the enthusiast market.

No joy in this post, just a feeling of... really?
Rob

I agree with you,
The only thing that makes me want to get a 1D is,
Awesome JPEG out of camera and WFT

So,
If they make the new 1D mark V with dual SD slots and APS-H sensors

I am gonna get it !

tkbslc: I've tried several LED lights in my hotshoe for video, but all that happens is that all the subjects in the video cower and shield their eyes due to the brightness.

That's why professionals always bring assistants,
They do the work carrying the lights

Don't you ???

In reply to:

vesa1tahti: What is actually better compared with D7200 ? IQ ? No pop up flash. Lower pixel count. Only speed and 4K. No thanks, I'll keep my D7200.

The article itself doesn't urge you to buy and get the new D500 or D5

So, I don't think anyone in here, asking whether you want to sell your D7200 and get the new D500 or D5 or not

Who cares ?!?

In reply to:

rekky: The D500 is a great camera for sports and wildlife shooters. For landscape/people shooters, the hope is that some of the new features will trickle down to the D7200 successor. For my purposes, I don't want to make the sacrifice of a lower MPix count in order to boost the shutter rate. Although I rarely use it, it's nice to have a fill-in flash available when you're not packing your external flash. But, the main feature that I'd like to see on the D7200 successor is the tilt-able LCD screen; it would eliminate some contortions that I am forced to make when shooting low to the ground.

If it wasn't for the cost of selling DX lenses and then buying the equivalent FX lenses, I would upgrade to a D750 based on it's current pricing.

You talked a lot about Mpix,
May I know how BIG you print your pictures all this time ?

Or do they just stored in a hard drive and showed on a nice retina displays ?

If you are Mpix maniac, why don't you go medium format, large format with bigger sensors, why discuss all the nonsense about BIGGER Mpix in a DSLR while you have far better option with bigger sensors ?

In reply to:

gbvalli: Wonderful camera, but for me the winner is still the D750; full format in a lighter and smaller body, at nearly the same price . Ok the D500 for who need absolutely 10 fps.

Do D750 able to mount new Nikon wireless flash system ?
This different also means nothing to you ?

Well, I live with the best flash I can get in the world,
For you with lots of experience knlw exactly the flash brand that I am using, Nikon new flash wireless system, I had to admit is brilliant compare to Canon, even though I don't know cooling system inside SB5000 means, that statement already kills 600EX-RT, plus you get free hotshoe slots when you mount this system on D500 and D5

Think again if D750 can do all that

Aroart: I live in NY and go to B&H about once a month and have played with just about every camera. If any one has ever shot with a d4, d1x, 7dm2 they truly appreciate just how responsive and crisp accurate focus speed of a Bad ass dslr... Welcome D500 to the list of BAD ASS dslr.. we will meet soon...

That's what I am talking about !

Those who scream FF every time "bad-ass"
Camera like this released,
You're right, they never use and feel how this "bad-ass" performed

Say it again, every people has different needs

tom1234567: why not buy Nikon FF D750 Camera and 24-85mm VR Lens £1749 for the lot
were as the D500 is £1720 body only
would one not be better with the FF?
all at srsmicrosystems.com

what do others think
Tom G

Upgrade your brain and stop thinking that FF is everything !

FF compare to aps-c is only very small differences
And people had different needs

I am pretty sure that people like you never use top of the line DSLR like D1 or 1D series with crop sensor

I've been using aps-h and realize that FF is not the problem, the quality of the camera itself (meaning:camera class) is what makes the different

"The camera is also equipped with three communication ports that may be used for streaming content out during recording"

Isn't it obvious ?
All you have to do is plug in an Atomos Shogun or similar device and forget the Super 8 cartridge thing

Such a waste

In reply to:

heavymeister: Why an external wireless transmitter? Why can't it be built into the D5?
I would like to see 24MP with 16 frames/sec with continous AF and 100 cross AF-points. The price-tag should be under 4500 €.

I can barely see that you are an AMATEUR
You never use a Pro body, 1D or D pro series of Nikon

I will tell you this,
WFT from Canon is much superior and great connectivity against built in wifi

Built in wifi has a very limited range,
When it lost connection you have to re-connect it again
Compare to professional body with external wifi,
It has better wifi range and will auto reconnect when disconnect

I've been using it on 1D mark IV for several years and stupid built in wifi on 6D and 70D, those built in wifi on 6D and 70D is a junk ! Totally useless !

Nikonparrothead: About time dpreview had a news item on this... I'm hoping this is a fruitful relationship. I hope this isn't a death knell for Pocketwizard but their TTL trigger system is as flaky (at least my set is) as the standard triggers are bulletproof. There are still plenty of lighting manufacturers who incorporate PWs in their lights but as far as big strobes go, only Elinchrom and Buff products have units designed to work with the TTL system.

Time will tell.

You got it right, DPJoe2,
Sony flash system is a rubbish
