Well, I'm not buying either camera, but by what I've read online, people are psyched for the 1DXIII and PO'd about the D6.

I can only speak for myself: I was disappointed that the rumor that the D6 would have IBIS turned out to be incorrect.

Also, Canon has the EOS R5 coming out which sounds phenomenal. Where's Nikon's answer to that?

A Z9 or whatever you want to call it.

I wouldn't expect IBIS on a top end pro camera. It is not a panacea and and the shutter speeds of most action shots doesn't really accomplish much.

It extends the range of shutter speed for which the camera can handheld, therefore it has its place in a top end pro camera.

Nothing is: neither IBIS nor in-camera metering nor AF, but all 3 today should be in a pro dSLR.

and the shutter speeds of most action shots doesn't really accomplish much.

We don't always have the luxury of high shutter speeds. And while the D# are geared more towards action they remain very polyvalent tools that can be used for everything.

They look more than great. They are fantastic!

I have never said I can take a better picture with a new lens than another guy with an old lens. I literally wouldn't know how to take pictures as good as the ones you've shared in that link.

All I know is that if I take a picture with an AFD and then with a Z, the Z looks better to me. But a few years back I might not have noticed on a lower res screen etc.

Nikon really needs to knock one out of the park with their next Z. I sold my Z7 because the tracking just wasn't there. The next Z must have a Sony a9 like tracking system, dual UHS II slots and they'll be in the ballpark.

That would be too little, too late I'm afraid. You think Sony is standing still? lol

Thanks for your comments!
Actually what makes the difference to me is an almost 3D pop that i get from the combination of the specific camera (D700) and my AF-D lenses.

I Used to shoot with D750 and D800e.I know it is hard for someone to believe but i sold both when i realized that my D700 with my Ai-s and AF-D lenses are the perfect combination for my needs

Re: The trend continues

And yet at the high end folks will get both a high MP camera and something in the 20-24MP range.

At the level of the D6 and it's general functionality IBIS isn't worth the effort.

In a lot of cases the "need" for more focus points, more megapixels, more built-in settings and other functions require more and more processing and memory and higher bus speeds.

Great marketing though, the camera with EVERYTHING.

This statement is too general IMO.

Event or wedding photographers are also the target of the D# series, have little interest in high MP cameras, and many would love to have IBIS.

Just an example.

Unfortunately not everyone can understand and appreciate the beauty of D glasses with a larger sensor pixel.

All D lenses work well with 24mp sensors. Better lenses don’t make you a better photographer.
