Photo Pete: Not surprised dSLR focus accuracy is so hit and miss. How on earth can a precision optical instrument be designed so poorly that the AF module is able to be installed in a visibly different location on each model.
That's not bad quality control, it's bad design.
But no one has ever missed focus with a Canon DSLR. Fact.
Digitall: Flare gives the image a retro style, very popular these days, hence the Nikon have included this type of effect in his latest model, for free.
You should buy a Canon 1DX, it set the benchmark for this standard ;)
FRANCISQUAN: I see prices have crashed right down for the DPR Gold award D750 which is now showing massive depreciation. Just wonder how much the repaired ones will sell for never mind the second hand models!!!
I'll just wait for the next model before thinking about a purchase!
Nikon D750 DSLR Camera (Body Only)£1,159.00 only with bank transfer payment (BACS), all inclusive.
You forgot to mention the price crash on the latest flagship crop sensor crap from Canon - yes the 7DMKII can be had from Panamoz for only £1111.50, a massive £500 discount from launch only a few weeks ago. Oh wait, you didn't understand the concept of grey import?
russbarnes: Also, can't believe they've released this before further lenses...
I don't want to use a body like this with an adapter where metering is guesswork and results are questionable. Where are Sony's lenses to properly support this line, or is their strategy really that this was always going to be a body for everyone else's lenses? If so, it's not working for me.

AA Filter or no?
I find it best to try and stay away from photographers' rage on here these days. My thoughts on the winning image are on my website here instead:
(unknown member): meh...
Ah there it is. He's incapable of any other comment when it comes to Nikon. Still so sour that Canon are incapable of producing anything remotely close to the quality of a body like this...
Smeggypants: he sounds a bit drunk.
Translation: "My hollow insignificant existence is so full of negativity that I am incapable of making a positive comment about anything, so instead I choose to vomit hate over anything I neither have the skill or talent to compete with, ever."
Brenizer is world class. If anyone on here fails to spot that they wouldn't know a decent portrait if it bit them on their ass.
JT986: Anyone know if it is weather sealed?
Unfortunately it isn't.
Anyone that can't see the political motivation of China towards Japan is blind. The problem with the D600 is real but this announcement has nothing to do with Nikon, they just provided the bait. This story is about China trying to damage Japanese commerce, pure and simple. The government owns TV in China and everyone in the West has reported this like lemmings. All that has happened here is that DPReview have perpetuated China's hate towards their Japanese neighbours. Congratulations.
Behold. This is 21st Century Canon all over so get used to it.
SteveSFO: I've been on the Zeiss Otus waiting list now for almost 2 months. Considering how good the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art has been with me, if Sigma gets this lens out on the market within a couple of weeks and if it lives up to all the claims Sigma is making - Carl Zeiss, you blew it!
Sigma.... put out some photos taken with this lens ASAP !!
£3k for a DSLR lens is pushing the envelope of acceptability in my book. I don't think Zeiss expect to sell many. If the Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art lens is even 90% of the Otus at a price that most are expecting it should be on everyone's list.
Gravitino: I wasn't expecting to buy a new 50, especially after getting the CV Nokton f/1.1 for my Leica M3. However, the 35mm f/1.4 Art lens from Sigma is among the best pieces of glass I've ever used. If this 50 performs similarly, my "nifty fifty" Canon is going to be retired. I can't wait to see some sample photos!
Couldn't agree more. Sigma are starting to hand out lessons to Canon, Nikon and Zeiss. The Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art lens is incredible on my D800E, in my view better than anything else I've used...
russbarnes: Who knows how many firmware updates it will take to get this release right....Buy in a year for a functional device?
Turns out I'm not the only one who doesn't peddle the same line as DPR here...The Fuji myth - I rest my case:
Fuji have a habit of releasing half cut cameras. I have no desire to endure months of frustration and be a guinea pig for products which have perpetually been rushed to market in an unfinished or unsatisfactory state that has plagued their other releases. Anyone who can't see that with Fuji is utterly blind! Using words like "refining behaviour" does not mean adding features. They have very much had to fix bugs, whether you think your use of phrases reflects that or not.
Who knows how many firmware updates it will take to get this release right....Buy in a year for a functional device?
russbarnes: Massive, massive yawn. Fuji have already become as predictable in this market as Canon has with its DSLRs. Every single release near identical to the last, the sensor is the same to three years ago, it's like Fuji are playing a fruit machine trying to find the right combination of a body that actually sells. The fact is that until they enter the full frame market, no one will take them seriously, if they put this body around something like the A7R sensor then it would sell, but failing to produce any lenses that could be used on full frame suggests this is years away. By then, Sony will have stolen the march on them.
I'm at a loss as to who believes this is a winning strategy from Fuji because their sales are so bad they don't even register in some countries. If they want to prise away customers from the DSLR market, it's not going to happen with £1000 crop sensor cameras and £1000 crop sensor lenses....
Good luck with that game of spot the difference Jeff. You should have saved some money and ordered an X-fillintheblank and then report how you could detect any difference whatsoever in the final image ;)
