I agree with all those 5 reasons. However for me the most important drawback of the MacOS is the Finder and its limitations. I mean this is one "file explorer" from the stone age of computing (sorry Mac fans!). For instance I want to see directory tree and thumbnails just like Windows Explorer. Why can't I do that in Mac ?? Either Thumbnails or Tree (Albeit not a good one), You cant have both at the same time. Not to mention all the other various customizations Win Explorer allows me to do. To be fair to Mac I like that it is much more stable than Windows and there are other advantages as well but not enough to make me switch to Mac.

mxx: I guess other manufacturers should be careful now, because Apple will probably sue them if their products should also suffer from black screens and overheating.

They tried to Copy Samsung but they failed. It did not catch fire...

ovlov: Apple products don't have issues. It's definitely user error.

Of course you get a black screen. You are holding it WRONG !

techjedi: With great respect, the photographer helped the assassin glamourize the murder and this photo will serve as a recruiting tool for terrorist groups. How exactly does this serve as an encouragement for pro photography? It is a great picture, but I am fairly sure the civilized world would have been no less off without it.

I personally do not think this photo glamorize anything....It is just reflecting the reality of the world we live in. Are we supposed to put our pink glasses and pretend nothing bad is happening in the world ? What about all the War Correspondents who risk their lives to bring you the atrocities of war ? Is that not Photojournalism? Are they glamorizing war or just bringing you the ugly faces of humanity for the benefit of Peace? Why does this picture bother anyone considering we have all seen much more atrocious pictures of the pain and suffering of the people in Syria, Afghanistan, or the genocide and famine in Africa ? This is the ugly face of human nature...You have a choice to either accept it as it is or stick your head in the sand and pretend it's not happening.

On article Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path (1624 comments in total)

".... frustrated by how little reach their 70-200mm now offers"

I don't quite understand the "frustration of not reaching as much in FF format". APS-C simply crops a FF image. If you use 200mm on a FF and you want the effect of 300mm on a APS-C just CROP your image and voila ! you got a APS-C camera in your hand.

5200 fw LINK IS WRONG. It points to 5100 update ! Nikon file extracts as 5100.bin ...

In reply to:

Danica: Is the D5200 link correct? The download says f-D5100-V101W.exe

I think they got it mixed up. The link points to 5100 update NOT 5200 ! When the file extracts, it's for 5100...

Target customer must be an 8 year old. I certainly can't read those dials w/o magnifying glasses. The style is befitting an 8 year old too so congratulations to Leica for creating the most expensive (perhaps) and most useless camera.
PS: At least it's for a good cause.

SanPa: Nikon US does not recognize an issue as of last week. I have to wonder if there is veracity in an EU D600 post citing the mirror box, not the shutter, as the source of oil droplets per Nikon Service.

The issue sure smacks of the numerical processor flaw denied by Intel for weeks and weeks. While the issue per postings seems self-limiting with enough clicks and wet cleanings, Nikon corporate should really campaign to recall oily cameras post-paid. At the very least, the image of corporate responsibility should be important, and the offending marketing manager should be allotted a corner office with a window, per Japanese tradition.

May be off topic but Intel did not deny the processor bug, they merely stated that the "average" user will not encounter this problem over the lifetime of the product. Later they realized their blunder and rectified it by recalling all procs. ( I know this because I used to work for them when this happened) :)

Snapsort recommends D600 ($2k) over Canon 1Dx($6.8k) (see: http://snapsort.com/compare/Canon-1D-X-vs-Nikon-D600)
I guess for $4.8k I can live with this little problem which most likely will disappear after the initial "break-in" period. I will do a wet clean after about 3000 clicks and see how it goes after that.

I just found this website that claims dust may be due to the scratch on the Shutter Curtain. If this is the case it's a very serious problem.
http://www.petapixel.com/2012/11/22/theory-nikon-d600-sensor-spots-caused-by-scratched-shutter-curtain/

After inspecting my picture of white background shot at F22, I found lots of dust spots, only visible when magnified on the left side of picture consistent with the others and the video. Still hoping an official response from Nikon.

compay: I guess Dpreview has to change the GOLD award into......euhhh....
Wit all the complaints about dust already before the review....they shouldn't have given a gold award at all. All these pixel peeping tests etcetera and then give a gold award while knowing the problem of dust/oil spots.

it's like america having the triple A staus and the greatest debt off all countries.....??????

i guess it's a power...money thing!

This is a quality control issue, not design. I am sure it will be solved in manufacturing process. So the Camera still merits whatever rating it's given to.
