MY Latent Image: We finally get an update on these two great lenses. All that is missing is the D400! Come on Nikon!!!!

Sorry, I never find D300/s interesting, regardless of handling or performance.

I'm glad I don't need all these feature for shooting BIF, that save me a lot of money!

What's wrong with D7200? BTW even current price for D7200 is more than I'm willing to pay for a DX DSLR.

Scottelly: Is anyone else wondering why this sensor gets BSI? I mean aren't there 24 MP APS-C size sensors out there that are like WAY more densely packed with photo-sites? Why aren't THEY made in the BSI configuration?

He doesn't even know FZ1000 uses the same Sony BSI 1" CMOS!

DuxX: Fantastic camera but I can't shoot without OVF. Sorry Sony.

Hi Evildogfdoom, the point is why you need a dot sight to follow action? If EVF can replace OVF or better than OVF, you don't need to use separate dot sight in first place.

EVF might be the future, but honestly not for today, if EVF is that good why there is the need to use Dot Sight for continuous tracking?

maxnimo: Impressive edge to edge sharpness. Most impressive. And I don't get easily impressed.

You can compare a full size shot I posted 3 days ago using an out date D7100 + AF-S 300/4D handheld and judge for yourself.

sneakyracer: Canon does not seem to agree. They have yet to make a decent IL Mirrorless Camera

Yes, the gain in market share for mirrorless in Asia is mainly due to the fire sales of discountiued models, but you still hardly find anyone using Samsung MILCs because Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Olympus, Fujifilm all dump their MILCs in Asia at price similar to DCs.

rrccad: hmm Samsung NX1 - ranked 85th in compact system cameras and 2,941 in Camera & Photo according to amazon.com
ranked 86th in CSC's and 1488 in cameras according to amazon.de

on amazon.co.uk .. not even on the radar.

not even listed I don't think on amazon.jp

bcn rankings - Samsung? do they make cameras?

seriously .. who buys these things?

Not like their smartphones, Samsung cameras are not selling in Asia either except Korea.

Apollo18: Very interested to see if similar optical improvements are made in the new teleconverter that we saw with the latest TC20.

Sorry what I meant is the TC20EIII, I never find it works with D800E and any of the prime like 400/2.8, 500/4 or 600/4, there are quite a few discussion about this after Nikon moved from 12MP to 36MP.

In reply to:

photoholiko: Just curious, does anybody really use f2.8 on a 300? to me that's a big price to pay for one f stop.

I shoot wide open with my 85/1.4G, 200/2 VR, 300/2.8 VR, 400/2.8 VR, 600/4 VR, 70~200/2.8 VRII, 200~400/4 VR, except for DOF reason.

I would expect IQ similar to Canon 400/2.8 IS II + TCIII, Nikon 2x TCII isn't that great after all.

In reply to:

QuarryCat: Nikon - still 3 years behind Canon - but more expensive.
Nikon - always to late.

Before Canon launched their 400/2.8 IS II, how many years they were behind 400/2.8 VR that was introduced in 2007?

In reply to:

RichRMA: Wow! Only 40% increase in price over the last one. Nikon is slipping.

Yes, when there's enough supply, the actual retail price should be less than $10000, current price for Canon 400/2.8 IS II is $9500 only.

BTW the lens hood HK-38 is the same one for 800/5.6VR.

Direct link | Posted on May 14, 2014 at 07:13 UTC as 26th comment

Look like I've to sell my current 400/2.8 VR & 600/4 VR to fund for it! ;-)
Any idea of how the lens hood look like? It should be a one pice hood as found in 500/4 VR isn't it?

In reply to:

Kelvin L: Camera Raw 8.4 is also broken on my copy of Bridge CS6. No option to open in Camera Raw when right-clicking a thumbnail, and option is greyed out in File menu. Running Photoshop CS6 Extended on MacOS 10.9.2

Use Time Machine to revert back to CR 8.4RC and wait for Adobe to fix the bugs.

For those that keep their work computer of the internet.

ACR 8.4 for CS6 (Win)

I use Bridge CS6 at to install this upgrade, but afterward Camera Raw no longer works from Bridge!
