bigdaddave: Well as long as Canons do it too it's not a fault. The Nikon bias here stinks.

Maybe because canon has the problem too?

bartolyni: Knowing Nikon's track record it will be tug-of-war before the repair takes place....
Bring on D760 soon to be replaced by D760s

Hi Bartolyni, nothing to do with freedom of speech, you just bore people with your animosity. Somewhere in Western europe, a village is missing their idiot. Go back to them please.

Jim Evidon: And this was the camera that DP Review did flip-flops over only a week or so ago. Nikon D750, "the Gold Standard" indeed!

At least the D600 had an excuse; sloppy assembly procedures. This one looks like a major design flaw. And Canons latest and greatest (?) suffers from the same bad designing.

Maybe if the big four camera companies slowed down and stopped trying to come out with new useless gimmicks every six months and concentrated on making quality cameras, they might avoid such embarrassments.

I gave up on Nikon and the other of the big four a couple of years ago. My money now goes to Fuji, Olympus and Leica; all camera companies that build honest to God real cameras and superior lenses rather than the newest in gimmick machines that will be obsolete with the next model 6 months from now.

Do you read the vitriolic drivel you read? Or are you just a sheep incapable of reading comprehension? This MINOR issue only happens at a very precise incident of light angle, and usually only when one is trying to make it happen. In two huge reviews, IR and DPR, did not It have it happen even once. But, have fun getting your jollies attacking Nikon, who has already said they would take care of the issue.

So the other images are only partly ruined? That makes sense.

In reply to:

locke_fc: Can't be.

A few posters here have been telling us repeatedly this was a non-issue, or something every other camera showed.

Pretty much a minor issue, not a major one, one has to try to get it to happen, and it has been shown in other cameras, see the IR report, and photography life.

lacikuss: Nikon is the Chrysler of photography... Awesome technology poor reliability. This is the opposite to what we are used to expect from a Japanese manufacturer.

Perhaps, DPR should include in its testing score a measure for equipment quality and equipment reliability.

Nikon QC issues are now well established. No other camera manufacturer has had so many camera recalls and equipment repair costs than this in the last 3 years.

I myself can testify on quality issues on two Nikon cameras and one lens.

Uhmm, Nikon has never had a camera "recall".

Peiasdf: Amazingly EVIL/mirrorless aren't any cheaper. EVIL/mirrorless doesn't have the complex mirrorbox, AF module, metering sensor, pentaprism, LED overlay, AF baffle, viewfinder curtain and big battery yet still charge about the same price.

And about half the camera.

Sad Joe: Sadly the brand new D750 appears to have the same quality control issues that forced the D600 out of the market. Given some of the very negative comments expressed you’d think that Nikon had set out to TRICK people into buying a naff camera – this is ridiculous- I feel sorry of the early users of the D750 who may or may not have this problem. I NEVER buy a new camera upon launch as 1: They often contain faults/ bugs 2: The price ALWAYS comes DOWN given a few months. Nikon need to man up and get this sorted FAST – the D600 did a lot of damage to Nikon’s reputation. Me – this Christmas I’m shooting with a 1977 Nikkormat FT2 (film of course) a Canon EOS-M (so much better than you would expect and the bargain of 2013/ 14) and a NEXUS table – whatever foalts ya boat people- its the final result that counts....

So if I point a D750 at just the right angle, with a bright light pointed at it, I might get a weird shadow/flare, that I might get with other cameras too. This flare is difficult to reproduce, and thats trying to get it. There are VERY few shots in the wild that show this, almost all are induced. Read the Photography Life and IR comments on it.

In reply to:

HowaboutRAW: There's a camera with no flare?

Which one?

LCF it has been shown on other cameras and not just Nikon.

Bottom line? others do it too, perhaps not as, but the shots are still ruined.

Still a gold camera.

Yes, they are more obvious, but they are all still ruined.

nerd2: Okay, I googled around and found this :P

http://www.slrclub.com/bbs/vx2.php?id=nikon_d1_forum&divpage=627&page=2&no=3352798

Exactly same thing (blocked flare) happens with 5Dmk2, 6D, D700 Leica M under some conditions I think the case is closed.

codeNsnap: Bummer...my Christmas self gift has to be put on hold now. Will wait for Nikon to confirm that flare issue is indeed fixed in newer bodies or confirm that the issue is specific only to certain serial numbers. It will probably be a long wait.

Carlos Loff: Nikon has become overpriced on its top cameras - If Nikon does´t care about that it will run down hill - The Market is Out There !!!

1/500 and 1/8000 was because the D70 had an electronic shutter.It was also prone to blooming.

In reply to:

Ron A 19: Seems like the D750 seems to have a sharper image at full resolution, but could this be partly because the Canons are using a lens that is 22 years older? The 85mm USM cannot outresolve the 85mm G (compare them on thedigitalpicture.com). If DPReview wants to compare these two cameras on a resolution basis, why don't they use the same lens on different bodies? A third party reference lens like the Sigma Art or Zeiss otus would be the perfect way to show limitations of a sensor rather than a cheapo circa '92 lens.

Nikon sharper:

In reply to:

Dan Vincent: "Up until recently, Canon and Nikon were the only games in town, with Sony shaking things up with its Alpha 7 mirrorless cameras in 2013. All three manufacturers have brought the price down on their full-frame cameras, with the hope of enticing photographers to move up from Four Thirds and APS-C models"

And what were the a900/850/99, chopped liver?

Obviously not as big of gamechangers as the a7 series, but there was a decent FF alpha contingent for many years before that.

No, they are not chopped liver, but were not particularly brisk sellers either. Sony seems to finally have gained some traction with their new A series bodies.
