None of the roller derby action images work for me. The backgrounds are too sharp. Need more depth of field separation.

abolit: love my 5DIII even better now.

The D750 is not a direct competitor to the 5DIII. That would be the D810.

Apparently it takes a class action suit to get Nikon to stand up and take notice.

Wouldn't it be great if they stopped playing the megapixel game and switched to a high quality 4 megapixel sensor? Imagine the dynamic range improvement possible with 4 times as much light striking each photosite.

Hey Nikon, the world does not evolve around Apple gadgets (or NYC for that matter). When are you and others going to wake up and realize that Android smartphones have double the market share as iPhone?

Headline should have read "Adobe heralds end of Photoshop as we know it"

No image stabilization, and no built-in flash? I don't understand. Why leave them out?

Holy cow! Are they serious? $1,700. That is 3 times what I paid for the extremely good Sigma 150mm f/2.8. I can't fathom why it would cost so much more. I don't think they'll get many takers at that price.

Is it really that hard to include a filter thread on the front of the lens? This is the biggest shortcoming, in my opinion.

On Checking iPhone exuberance article (13 comments in total)

Since when does eveyone have an iPhone? Last I checked, Android was outselling iPhone by a pretty large margin. There are 550,000 new Android devices being activated every day. (No, I don't work for Google)
