vscd: I don't understand why Nikon doesn't use the number 5400 for it. The 5xxx is not unlimited with numbers and I think the series will go on for some more years ;)

Guess that's why there wa never a Nikon F4 or D4 or F90....oh...wait a second....

armandino: Nikon never really built a direct competitor to the Canon 7D series, and this is no change. I am surprised Preview has this so wrong. To be honest the 7D has no direct competitors. It is a dedicated sport camera. D7xxx is more inline with the other brands competitors. Canon 70D is more like the Canon competitor that really needs to step up IQ in order to compete.

I consider a couple stops more DR below 800 to be more than marginal. Just check dpr tests even on the D7100...it isn't marginal.

@mac - If AF sped and fps are the main measure...then the 7D2 is pretty good. If image quality is the main measure, then the D7200 blows it away. I think you are splitting hairs very fine here by making your whole judgement based upon one pro you seem enamoured with. I attend MLS soccer games on a regular basis with seats close to groups of photographers. I have yet to see a 7D2...or Nikon aps-c camera....lots of D3 and D4 and 1D4 and 1Dx. I even see some Nikon F5 shooters.

ashokvashisht: Small upgrade. But what is the banding issue in the D7100/D5200 ? I was planning a D7100 after the D7200 launch.

Dr Jon, he isn't being pro nikon....he is simply saying the for most situations, the sensor in the Nikon is better than the Canon...which is a measurable fact that some Canon users go out of their way to deny and excuse.

I don't worry about it as it is far,far better than any Canon sensor

The a6000, with great AF, fps, and a superior sensor is a pretty decent camera.

LOL! This guy would make a very successful used car salesman!

And I provided a link showing the Fuji beats the Pentax. Your point being?

@mescalamba - I guess by that logic, we can assume that you have no test comparisons either to show us that you done yourself! Or does the picure proof only flow one way...LOL

Can't be a victim when I have actually compared the cameras side by side. And whatnraw convertor does DPR use again? Oh...ya...that's right. But keep trying...it's always fun whatching people like yourself try and try again.

@mescalamba, the Fuji tests higher on color as well. But thanks for your opinion vs reality.

Well Audio, looking at the resolution comparison between the XT1 and K5iis at the Imaging Resource, it is pretty evident that the Fuji resolves more line pairs and does so with less moire. So yes, XTrans does better than Bayer.

JDThomas: Even Fuji can admit the AF isn't on par with the SLR. Something it's Fuji-fans refuse to do.

I don't think I've ever seen Fuji users on the forums here claim the AF is as gold as current DSLRs.

Poweruser: Another demonstration of how little "bokeh" is going on in a 2.8 midrange zoom on APS-C. Which is why most people should be happier with either a slower, cheaper, lighter standard zoom or a set of fast primes.

This could have been a winner if as fast as Sigmas 18-35.

Tlin....I suggest you look at definitions in every dictionary,physical and online. I don't really care what some resident has to say. Every dictionary says he's he's wrong. Oh, and I too am friends with a number of Japanese resident photographers who agree with me as well. But if you want to prove the world flat, feel free to give me a link to the flat earth society.

Wrong Mike. Bokeh is the Japanese term for the quality of the blur...not the amount.

Bokeh

nounPHOTOGRAPHY
the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens.

Before you go correcting people, make sure you know what you are talking about.

The term "no bokeh" makes no sense. I presume you mean the out of focus areas are not as out of focus as you like.

How "little bokeh." You dont have an amount of bokeh...bokeh describes the quality of the out of focus areas.

Seems Canon is only interested in one attribute of sensor tech...possibly to the detriment of other important factors.
