I think there's a design fault in the D5.

In reply to:

Alex Velasco: Many people seemed to have missed this:

ABOVE 1600 ISO, the NIKON D5 has the HIGHEST DYNAMIC RANGE of any Nikon tested by DXO (capitals used for clarity.) The Nikon D5 enjoys 0.5 to 1 stop EXTRA dynamic range at higher than 1600 ISO sensitivity than the D4, which was the previous best Nikon tested.

Is that clear?

Clear is:

The D5 has 2 EV less dynamic range in low ISOs, which are the most important ISOs for quality photography.

If you want speed get a D500. If you want overall quality, get a D750 (or A7 II).

In either case, you'll save thousands!

Peter62: Dynamic range is a joke!

Look here:

http://www.photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR.htm#Nikon%20D5,Nikon%20D750

2 EV (!) less DR compared to the D750 is nothing short of a disaster!

Quality photography is made at low ISO! And here, the D5 is 2 EV (!) worse than the D750. From ISO 1200 and up the D5 is better.

But shouldn't a flagship camera be good at every ISO, especially (!) at low ISO?

So, it is a joke (and a disaster)!

The D5 may be fast, but in terms of dynamic range it seems to be a desaster!

What is AF-speed and build quality good for, when image quality lacks?

At half the price the D500 would be of great value...

Let's face it: No one shoots RAW, especially no sports photographer (for whom the D500 is made for)!

And why should we, when Fuji's JPG-engine is so perfect!?

Why is that?

In reply to:

Peter62: The D500 has no chance against the Fuji X-E2 !

Just try the following, it's the best way to evaluate sensors:

Use DPREVIEWs phantastic Image Comparison Tool.
Switch to LOW LIGHT.
Set ISO 12800 (i.e.).
Compare Fuji X-E2 and Nikon D500.
Buy the Fuji. Forget the overpriced D500.

Sure, the D500 is likely to be better in shooting sports than the X-E2. But here in Germany the D500 costs 4 times more than the X-E2/E2s.

And the image quality of the Fuji is better than the Nikon. You can see here for yourself.

So, I think it will be hard for Nikon to sell the D500 in reasonable amounts.

In reply to:

Michael Ma: It could be they are going full frame and only full frame. Sony pretty much ditched all their cropped sensor mirrorless and is having amazing success with the full frame A7 series. They probably want to compete with Sony, not Canon or Nikon.

For all we know, Samsung may see the NX1 as mission accomplished and as the green light they've been looking for to go full frame. They were awarded the camera of the year in many categories.

And then you discontinue your camera of the year???

Link | Posted on Nov 30, 2015 at 00:07 UTC

Last year on Photokina in Cologne the NX1 was presented with huge effort - and now it's discontinued??

Come on, Samsung, that's ridiculous!

Once again, Canon fails.

Sad.

In reply to:

prossi: maybe the highest rez image but still with extremely poor DR.

Sure, Canon falls short with their DR, but come on - this picture/subject didin't need any DR!

So, this time it's not fair to say that.

Link | Posted on Jun 3, 2015 at 12:23 UTC

I appreciate this fantastic work!

But maybe it was the wrong subject - there's nothing interesting to zoom in!

And it's a little bit unsharp, too.

But I am fascinated by the technical efforts, so thanks!

I can't see any real improvement over the 6 years old 18MP sensor.

Buy a Nikon D3200 with 18-55 VR lens for 299 Euros brandnew - and you'll save 500 Euros and get better images!

Hope Canon recovers before it's too late...

In reply to:

Pat Cullinan Jr: Can anyone offer some observations and/or comparisons about image quality at ISO 6400 and above?

Comparisons with the Nikon D5500 will be much appreciated.

Hmmm... I haven't yet vetted all 4 pages of commentary -- maybe this has already been treated. Still, summary and pithy remarks will be welcome.

You can use the IMAGE COMPARISON TOOL right here on DPR.

In reply to:

Peter62: Just used the image comparison tool. Set to ISO 12800 I compared the

Fuji X-E2
Nikon D7200
Canon EOS 760D
Canon EOS 750D

Even with it's "smaller" 16 MP-sensor, the X-E2 has a higher resolution than ALL(!) APS-C Nikons and ALL APS-C Canons!

Just look at the small coloured concentric circles.

I wasn't talking about noise, but resolution. At ISO 100 every Point&Shoot has the same resolution as an APS-C camera.

So you have to go to higher ISOs to see a difference.

BTW, that shows why more and more people rely on their smartphones when shooting holiday pictures. You can't see any difference to an DSLR in bright sunlight...
