  • entoman: don’t take life so seriously. The poster rz350 is poking fun at the dpreview staff who associate too much importance to some feature or another - while missing the big picture: the...

  • Nice work. Also doesn't hurt that the model is good looking.
  • It is just OK - not great. I did a tripod side-by-side between my 24-70 f/2.8E VR, 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 VR, 24-120mm f/4 VR, Fujifilm 18-55mm f/2.8-4. The Nikon lenses on a D810 and Fujifilm on ...
  • Nice set of comparisons! First time I am seeing them side by side. True. That will be interesting - however Nikon still may not be in a mood to have a non-proprietary mount and let others have lens ...
  • That's the big question - why are the Nikon 1 lenses so big if they are only capable of projecting a smaller image circle? Example: 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6: 2.3 x 1.7" / 57.5 x 42 mm; 4.1 oz. ...
  • Replied in Good decision
    Most likely the best overall camera right now. At the very least you can say the D850 is as almost good as it can ever get with a DSLR.
  • Most of them should work looking at the relative sizes of the micro four thirds lenses and the mount size vs the CX lenses and mount size. However - they will need to check the UWA 6.7-13mm as you ...
  • Yes - exactly. Yes - with the option I suggested its possible they can even discount it to lower like $350 with the 10-30 lens and $450 with 10-30 & 30-110.
  • All are really good cameras with a few flaws: https://www.sansmirror.com/newsviews/is-one-really-better.html
  • What commitment is there in this approach? Making a CX mount camera body or two with a bigger size sensor than 1"? Their 1" competitors had smaller camera bodies in the form of Sony RX100 variants. ...
  • It definitely looks bigger than the micro four thirds - so it should definitely support 2x. Fujifilm X is 44mm diameter while Nikon 1 is 40mm - with a similar flange distance - so perhaps larger ...
  • I guess this may have been discussed (if not here at least in meeting rooms in Nikon HQ) - but here it is - some armchair product marketing. So here is the deal for Nikon - they have the following ...
  • Can you guys discuss offline?
  • I concur - I made almost the same point below (I had not seen your reply before posting & probably could have skipped my reply to Stacey). Yes - again almost the same point.
  • That's a very narrow definition. No one really expects their lenses to appreciate in value. However just like cars and other durable consumer items, people tend to favor the ones that they can use ...
  • Spot on! I put a lot of weight on Thom's common sense opinions as well as his reviews based on actual use. He used to be great source of knowledge when he used to frequent these forums (fora) in ...
  • True. I can see the value of a Z7 with select Z lenses (e.g. 14-30 f/4 + 24-70 f/4) along with continuing to use for many years other F-mount lenses via adaptor (e.g. 70-300 AF-P or a 70-200 f/4 ...
  • Created discussion thread Thom's article: Lens anxiety
    Nothing new that common sense folks don't know - but a good read nonetheless: https://dslrbodies.com/newsviews/nikon-2018-news/november-2018-nikon-news/lens-anxiety.html Some highlights straight ...
  • Yes - I don’t know why folks think camera companies should concede all the entry level market to smartphones and just go prosumer. In fact for Nikon (or Canon), the entry level is likely more ...
  • However strongly Nikon may want to make customers change to Z, if the customers are not ready to adopt then we can see DSLRs being the main Nikon cameras for much longer than any one of us here ...
