Laguna Beach wants to be an exclusive white rich person colony which bad artists can sell their wares...in reality, it is the largest tract housing development in the world.

new boyz: Now the D5 looks soft in comparison.

Maybe the lens or focusing?

As someone who has given Rishi a hard time in the past, I want to commend him for his forthcoming admission (I am not a FF e mount shooter). Too much is made of the scene with many variables present, distance being one of the them. Let us acknowledge all variables and embrace differences of camera and lenses.

RCicala: Being scientific isn't about having the right answer. It's about trying to get the right answer and being transparent in your methodology so that others can constructively critique your methods and make them better. And then the hard part - going 'we made a mistake, we're fixing it'.

The easy thing is not show methods, not accept criticism, and scream "I'm right" louder than anyone else. It's easy. But it's bad science.

My compliments and admiration for doing the hard thing. I've had to do it several times.

Thank god that the earth is flat

Snapper2013: Will these new findings change the final score of the a9?

No...it is policy of DP to match the 1dxII and d5

BobT3218: It would be perfect to be able to forget about stills. Just take videos and if required, select a frame and print it. This is full convergence. However, will it happen in a small DSLR format at a consumer prise, in my lifetime? I don't think so but it will happen. My first camera was manual everything. The monochrome only film was wound on by a screw. I now have a camera that has technology that was inconceivable even to the foremost futurists of the day.

If you are 90, maybe so, but everything is doubling with each generation...5 years 8k will be available to the masses.

Forecasting the new plastic malleable lens which probably will up show it phones pretty soon.

Xentinus: I like him really. He is one of the smartest reviewer. Beside DRP staff, there is also Gordon Laing, who has really good reviews. I know most of you will disagree, but Ken Rockwell has great points as well.

I am sure Tony loves to be put in the same boat as KR.

endofoto: DXO published a9 lab results. It has a modest DR score of 13.3, much lower than crop sensor D7200 which has DR 14.6. Sony produces best sensors for Nikon, why did Sony back up? I think it is for video and/or speed.

I believe the 99II ticks all the boxes, speed and good DR.

maxnimo: If this is a promotional video it's quite possible that some of the scenes were made by skillfully applied computer generated animation. Unless you know, you just don't really know.

Every time you go into your digital program and change something (it isn't film), will you expect everyone to tear their hair out?

Don't English buildings have sprinkler systems or was this neglected due to it being housing for the poor?

1,000 mile shorter range than the 787-9, yet more people can be shoe horned in efficiently.

Maybe the last complete plane fly over in Seattle...Boeing is slowly moving production to non union states and countries. The management fled to Chicago so they wouldn't have to see their neighbors laid off. Cool video, I wouldn't want to be a passenger with those lift offs.

skookum8: Elementare's comment below really raises the question of "what if" had Nikon not bungled the V1 and its successors (for a variety of reasons that have been discussed extensively on the forums). What if Nikon had doubled down on mirrorless at that point and didn't limit itself to just the 1 inch sensor and didn't see it as self-cannibalizing to its existing product lines, etc? It would have been great for Nikon to be now working on its nth iteration of mirrorless, rather than where it is today.

Neither would work because of Nikon's mechanical aperture controls. Only the limited amount of lenses which are e would be adaptable for easy af. They could accept that limitation and go with E mount (it is open unlike Fuji X).

jennajenna: Why does Sony feel the need to copy Canon's use of the color white (almost same shade actually) for zoom lenses?

Dear Bad Science, we are not talking colors, both black and white are not colors.

Unfortunately Nikon doesn't seem to be in a position financially to bring another platform out and are concentrating on their core business. They produce very good still reflex cameras.

White lenses reflect heat but black releases heat more efficiently...I would call it a draw or just marketing.
