russbarnes: Incredible. There is absolutely nothing to write home about here. Colour is flat and dull, sharpness is questionable at best. It looks like output from a cheap crop sensor zoom that shouldn't cost you more than £150... There's nothing here at all worth talking about over the 18-55.
Well that's what we've been given to place the judgement on, so yes, let's.

DaveBowman: All that resolution and they still give you a crappy bit of rubber for an eyepiece shutter. Some things never change, like Canon not listening to feedback. Glad I moved away.
The weight of what Canon must feel about apparently innocuous features like that is staggering. They prove over and over that they think they know better than the people using their equipment. It's utterly appalling.
The truth about Canon's lenses and sensor performance will soon be revealed to the world, just as Nikon was laid bare when the D800 was released.
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...
Joed700: Nikon definitely has taking steps backward in terms of QC among other things. The last and most decent release of FX DSLRs were D700 and D3X in my opinion. The current D800s LCD screens have a greenish yellow tone, which makes one wonder why the D700 and D3xs were better even they are older models. Also, the jpegs on the D800s were not exactly perfect either in term of colors. If cutting back is their big motive, I wouldn't mind paying a little extra to get something at least as good as the D700 or D3x. Nikon, shame on you!
I think you'd better read your post again. YOU said the D800 LCD has a greenish yellow tone. There is NOTHING wrong with the quality of the LCD and when you have the FIRST clue about colour calibration, come back on here and apologise for your arrogance. Then read MY post again and you'll know I shot with the D700 for years, and side by side with the D800.
