On Nikon D610 Review preview (339 comments in total)
In reply to:

FrankS009: Speaking of late reviews, what about the Panasonic G6? It was introduced a year ago, and has not had a full review yet. Perhaps DPR is waiting for its replacement.

The G6 weights half of the D610, has an articulated screen, and its lenses are half the size and weight too. There is a purpose for every camera, but the difference between full frame and micro-4/3rds IQ is getting small enough that for practical purposes most people don't need to spend the extra money or lug the extra weight. The revolution has truly taken place.

F.

I got me a D3200 in addition to the D610 ... a much better option than buying into a new system.

Lucas_: IMHO it's outrageous to give a Gold Award and an 87% note to this camera and Silver with 80% to the fantastically innovative Sony A7 ( not to mention the A7R, which is clearly at another level and got Gold / 82%! ). It's about time DPR realizes that their reviews "conclusions" have actually become a joke! I can appreciate the level of camera features/controls details and specs they cover ( which IMO is the good value of the review ), but I've learned to just don't care at all about their final conclusions ( sometimes hilarious ) and rating!

I have the D610 now, and had the A7 before it.

I found the ergonomics flawed on the A7, and that it was almost impossible to use the rear rotary dial with gloves.

Great IQ, flawed ergonomics = deserved 80%

select: I have this camera and I love it!
It produces such high quality images... for sure it's the best camera in this segment, but Nikon should advertise a lot more.
This camera destroy the Canon 650D/700D

The T5i lags pretty noticeably behind the D5300 in terms of dynamic range ... at any ISO.

Marc Rogoff: This is not only a D600 problem but apparently the D800 has the same issue. In fact my D3X has terrible dust issues - very frustrating that Olympus seems to have solved the dust issue yet Nikon with all their R&D money cant sort this out...

That Olympus have solved the dust issue is news to me, care to elaborate?

JDThomas: I just saw the pricing for this lens. $1300?!? Not for a Tamron, no way. Drive this baby off the lot and it depreciates by 40%. I'll keep the Nikon thanks. VC is nice to have, but it's not a necessity especially with the way Nikons perform in low-light these days.

The Nikon 24-70 is a killer lens, with a better build and IQ, and you always know that you can resell your Nikon lens without losing too much.

There's a benefit for photo journalists that might be asked to shoot video as well - in that case the VC is a huge plus.

Swedish mag. Foto just awared it a "highly reccomended"-tag.

On Tamron releases image-stabilized 24-70mm F2.8 zoom article (190 comments in total)

Absolutic: I got really excited about it at first when I noticed the ad, thinking, wow, Nikon 24-70 is $1700 and it is a monster in terms of weight. I used one during a wedding and my arm was ready to give up at one point. So I see this, and thinking to myself, a light little Tamron 24-70 F/2.8 for $600 probably, where do I sign up. Yes the ring AF will be slower of course, but who cares for half the price? Then I look at the picture and see 82mm filter, and all my excitement is starting to vanish. Then I look at the specs for weight and see close to 900 grams.... Not so excited now

The 28-75 is at least sharp wide open - none of the three 17-50mm I have had have been anywhere near as sharp.

Yes, the 28-75mm has corner issues wide open, at the wide end. But concider these two samples at 28mm, and 75mm - both wide open. I for one could easily live with soft corners at the wide end as long as the center is sharp.
