Retzius: Nice video! Unfortunately, it really underscores Nikon's poor attitude towards DX users. If you are going to use all pro level FX glass and pro lighting (like in the video) you aren't going to buy a semi-pro DX camera... It is rather awkward that you need pricey pro FX glass to showcase your flagship DX product. If Nikon had made a smaller, less expensive, f2.8 trinity for DX I could see the point of a video like this, but the way things stand it seems like failed vision on Nikon's part.

With all due respect, the target market of the D7200 is not as a back up camera for the D810... Will Nikon defenders ever realize that Nikon made a poor decision not supporting semi-pro DX? Probably not.

On article Heavy lifting: Leica S (Type 007) sample gallery (197 comments in total)

a bunch of pictures of a fountain and a bowl of apples don't really show what this camera is capable of...

I think this camera is ridiculously priced except for very high end portrait photographers who book celebrity sittings. these types of images do not show why they would use this camera instead of a competing medium format brand.

thanks all at dpreview but I'm just keeping it real

I applaud the technological advancements but this is really more of a matter of taking poorly composed photos in harsh mid-day light.

Retzius: on another note... Nikon going to very large front elements and 'E' models with electronic aperture motors is an obvious attempt to do everything they can to innovate without changing the F mount.

they would be better off creating a new mount like Canon did with a larger throat and more contacts. it would give them more versatility as they migrated to the inevitable mirrorless models

Actually, they did the worst thing possible. They just created incompatibility WITHIN their existing mount.

So now the purchase price is called a "pledge"?

Instead of a customer you are a "backer"?

Now THATS good marketing.

Makes sense

Nikon and Canon are serious about mirrorless?

Really? Show me their serious mirrorless cameras

Market share decrease is never a move in the right direction...

Nikon is corporation that exists to make a profit. They are a publicly traded company with share holders that demand quarterly dividend. Sorry to rain on your parade, but as idealistic as your post about making "tools" might sound to you, its gibberish.

In the digital age, you attract people via innovation or by making things easier.. easier for them to take a picture or easier for them to share their photos. Unless Nikon wants to dwindle down to become a small company like Leica that caters to a very small group of loyal buyers or rich collectors, they same old way they are producing and marketing cameras will not work. The numbers show it is failing. They won't make a profit, they won't attract investors, they will lose money, they will downsize, and the rest will be history.
