Oh.

I thought you were going to complain that DPReview's "hands-on" was patently cobbled together from Nikon text and image offerings without a hand ... on ... anything.

  • All of the images illustrating the article are our own (I shot them at the UK product launch yesterday).

  • All of the text accompanying the images is there to highlight what I considered to be interesting snippets about the system that aren't necessarily obvious from simply looking at the pictures, but only from actual hands-on with the cameras and lenses.

  • The introduction contains several quotes from an exclusive interview we conducted with one of Nikon's most senior R+D engineers.

So no, it's not simply cobbled together from Nikon's press materials at all.

Well that's the impression I get from the 2 pages of the preview.

It's not a formal preview (and doesn't claim to be), but instead a first impressions article about the system as a whole. As such, it's in the 'Articles' section of the site, not in 'Previews'. We'll prepare a proper preview in due course.
