Der Steppenwolf: There are a lot featured photographers here that have ONE thing in common. Could you guess what it is ?A tip, it's got NOTHING to do with photography at all.DPR has changed. A lot. To the worse.
Just like I said, there is one thing in common for 95% of all featured photographers on these articles on DPR. I DID NOT write that this is "not photography" or any such nonsence. Some of you may need to learn to read once again. Thing I am referring to has nothing to do with photography but WHO they are. There is the clue, rest you have to figure out for yourself.

Trubbtele: A7R II are to small for my hands. And use mirrorless Sony in nature is not right element for that camera either. Who cares about the size, I use digital Hasselblad in the forrest for years, so for me DSLRs are quite small,from my point of view :-)
@enenzoUntil mirrorless has an AF that can actually track and battery time worth mentioning people that shoot anything that moves are forced to use DSLR.In future that might change, but remember we are living and using cameras in the present.
shleed: People bickering about brands: It really doesn't matter, especially that eventually they will be replaced by mirrorless once battery life and AF have improved.
"especially that eventually they will be replaced by mirrorless once battery life and AF have improved."And until that happens I will stay with my trusty DSLR since I shoot things that move.
JohnHoppy: Pushing the boundaries of DSLR? - DSLR maybe, but photography has been travelling since 2009, CaNikon are on the CaNikon bus while photographers worldwide are getting on the mirrorless bus to see boundaries pushed. Nikon says, "WE ARE the future!" Does anyone believe that?
@surleziKiddo, try using EVF to shoot action, animals or anything else in dark environments.If you are shooting landscapes or people not moving in the middle of the day, fine and good for you. But please do not assume that everybody else is too.EVF in examples above are junk and that is proven by the fact that NOBODY is using them in those conditions. Not to mention the fact that anything that has an EVF has abysmal AF tracking that is akin to DSLR AF in 1980s ;)
nafik: I’m going to wait until all the quality control problems are solved. Too many people have been burned with having to send brand new products back to Nikon for fixes of things that should have been caught before shipping. Nikon is not known for admitting and quickly resolving QC problems.
Development is stopped already, hence the launch.
There is a LOT of noise in that tulip picture (look at the flowers petals even at ISO 100. Thisis why you need DR.
JakeB: I would never buy such an ugly looking camera.
Most people actually USE their camera. The look THROUGH it instead at it. But I guess you are the person that byus uncomfortable shoes becouse they look good. Kinda like a twelve year old girl don't you think ?
skookum8: I'm a bit baffled why the photos were shot at 1/2000 (given the lenses used). Anyone care to enlighten me on the factors driving that choice? Thanks.
Freezing action and having sharp images given how high resolution sensor A7IIr has.
cheetah43: How the hell can one take action photos with all those AF machinations to think and fiddle about? And, where is the action? The photos are all frozen at 1/2000.
Google "action photography".I guess a newbie like you would shoot at 1/60 or lower. That would give nice and sharp pics would it not ?How about you take a long brake from DPRW and use the time to actually learn what sport photo is about. That would help a lot as to not look like a fool when commenting on things you literary have no clue about.
Jokica: Is there anyone else who would like to see 1.4/50 instead of 2.0/35? Just curious.
Short flange or not, amount of glas must be much higher in faster lens.Not to mention that AF must move that glas and even now it is not a speed demon exactly.
Did you stop to think how BIG that lens would be and how would it balance on already small body ?Take a look at difference in size and heft between 35 f/1.4 and 2.0 35mm lenses.There is your answer.
Mikael Risedal: it seems that many believes that the sensor is unique and that Nikon would not be able to use the same sensor in their cameras, or wait a year etc etcNikon may well use the same sensor or order one from Sony with their own specifications in terms of for example resolution,it is a question of cost and what Nikon can get out from the BSI sensor in comparison with Sony FSI Exmor. Sony manufactures sensors to those who are prepared to pay for them.
And just like you said, Sony does make these sensors which also means that Sony decides IF they want to sell them to Nikon, you, me or anybody else. That is called "freedom of choice" and nobody can make or force Sony sell them to Nikon if they decide not to. If I was running their camera division I would not sell this sensor to big companies that are MINE competition or I would charge them extra money to force them to raise prices on their cameras. That is called sound strategy.
Karroly: As many eyes as a fly but not able to shoot 3D pictures ?No buy...
Nobody cares about 3D pictures. The fact that you even mention that 3D crap tells me you probably own one of those failed 3D TV sets as well dont you :D
fastlass: 5 Girls is off the chart.
Has anyone seen an original print? How large was it?
Why ?It's a really at best a mediocre picture. And I really mean "at best" !
Dirk Nuary: The more misery you've captured, the bigger chance to get the prize. Why?
Because humans LOVE misery. Was that so hard to fathom given radio, newspapers, TV, Internet and every other god damn media that has been around last 100 years ?Let me guess, you have never taken a class in psychology nor media right ?
RichyjV: "which contradicts the popular belief that higher resolution displays consume more battery power"
No, it agrees with that *belief*(fact) entirely, and mitigates by only using it a high resolution in certain circumstances. So it is using more power(obviously) but isn't doing it that often.
4k where it matters, on video and images only? You can't see it anywhere so what is the point? I have a 4k large TV and I have to put my face to a silly close distance on it to make out individual pixels.
And what do you use 4K TVs for you not so ignorant person ?What do you watch on 4K Tv's ? Those 14 shows available today ? Over and over again ?And please do learn how to debate properly, reading your comments is an orgie in sillyness.
Der Steppenwolf: 4K on that size is useless.Great product for morons that think more is always better.Way to many of those are born every day though :(
@gskolendaI zoom on maps and photos on my 1080 screen on daily basis and have done for 3 years now. No issues here. Maybe you should look up and see an eye doctor if you are experiencing any.And what the hell is a "snorom", are you spelling "morons" backwards?Admit it now, you are a 12 year old kid. You better be since your "points" and "arguments" are on that level. So if you are by any case a grownup and are stooping down to this level my only suggestion is get some professional help.
Billy Chiu: You posted video footage of the soccer game with the RX10 II, did you take video footage with the Nikon D5500 for comparison?
D5500 is tested here, it also has exact same AF as D7000 also tested here on DPR.Why do you want same AF system tested 3 times ?
CaMeRa QuEsT: Nikon, how about a firmware fix for both the deep shadow banding and the green cast issues? These are the only 2 cameras you have ever made that have deep shadow banding, a flaw you have been able to avoid on the D7200 which you have stated is using the exact same sensor as the D7100.
Frank, good point there.I have a rule, NEVER buy a camera when it comes out. I always wait at least 3 months. 90% of people out there are trained consumers and they just N E E D to have latest gear. Then, when it's time to pay the price of early adoption in form of bugs or not wanted behavior they whine on forums. It's just sad.
