Roman Korcek: What does DP stand for, please? I assume it's not "Digital Photographer" and a quick Google search was... not helpful.

Thank you all! :-)

Roman Korcek: Just like in the terrible Nikon interview of 2014 ( http://www.dpreview.com/articles/7726365599/photokina-2014-nikon-interview-large-sensor-mirrorless-could-be-a-solution ), Nikon is still carefully studying market demand before they do anything at all. For everything. For years.

"We will continue to watch the needs of our customers and market trends"
"We are willing to cater to the needs of customers by developing what is required by the market. We’re observing market trends very carefully"
"Yes we have plans for more lenses, if necessary after analyzing the needs of the market."

It took them quite a lot of years of careful market analysis to find out customers would really really like a new D300S.

I am not saying Nikon did not bring out any new models at all, I just don't really think any of those models (before the D500) would be considered a D300S replacement.

Suntan: So these spectabular lenses need vignette correction? That's kind of a letdown.

@Satyaa
"Not for G Master lenses, he explains. ‘Light doesn’t separate nicely into red, green and blue' (the color channels that most cameras capture, and which can be adjusted, relative to one another, to correct lateral CA). It’s a continuum with each wavelength being displaced slightly differently. ‘To get the really high contrast we wanted in G Master, we had to suppress it in the lens.’"

In reply to:

GaryJP: Whenever I see someone superficially badmouthing another photographer's works here I almost always immediately go to check their gallery.

95% of the time they have uploaded nothing.

And no links to their work either.

What we are saying is that no matter who says, "Canon rulezz, Nikon suxx", his claim is nonsense, no matter if he has any images to show or not, no matter how gorgeous his images might be.

The same way, if someone points out that eg. another crop might benefit the composition, that claim may be true regardless of the images in his gallery.

Does everyone really disagree with this assessment? Do so many people really regard the messenger more than the message?

ETA:
To me it seems many people are defending the position that if someone says something negative, he must be wrong, unless he is a good photographer, then he might be right, even if the message is exactly the same.

I wonder, how come so many people misunderstand the point?

@GaryJP
Yes, it said exactly what I repeated later, that people badmouthing other people often have no images of their own to show. As I said, while that might be true, it does not have any impact on the badmouthing itself. Perhaps instead of pasting quotes not relevant to the topic you could voice your opinion on that.

@GaryJP
After your comments and claims you recommend this book to me? You said you wanted to see examples of where a commenter is coming from and after I gave you one you changed the subject? I see a discussion with you is not possible, so only to summarize, I claim that a commenter's images have absolutely no bearing on his comments being true or not (unless he talks about his own images, of course), you claim the opposite. We shall let it rest at that, then.

EDIT: Perhaps you are just saying that badmouthing commenters usually have no images in their galleries, which, as @crashpc pointed out earlier might be true but it does not make their comments any more or less true, thus is of no relevance to the comments itselves.

@GaryJP
So "Canon sucks, Nikon rulezz" is a respectable comment as long as the commenter's galleries are full of marvelous images?

@crashpc
While I do not really understand what you are trying to say it seems you assume my comment was directed to you although it was directed to GaryJP? Perhaps I should have made that more clear.

How dare you comment other people's criticisms unless you offer a better one?

Roman Korcek: As much as I try I don't see "the hiker wearing a fluorescent yellow jacket" on #10. Would someone please be so kind and paint an arrow or something onto the image for me? Thank you.

They do, but you're right, there is no way one can see that at this resolution.
