Flat Earther: Let me be the first one to declare that if you're not shooting with D850, you're shooting with the wrong camera.

Camera gear is only part of the equation.... and the part that probably matters the least when capturing great photos.

Spectro: I do both, natural light when hanging out with friends since i am not carrying extra equipmment. For event or photoshoot got to have some fill light. Natural light is harder since you have to have more elements to all be right. The sun angle, direction, how much shade, the brightness of the background, etc. Ittl on speedlight is so smart it makes shooting easier with soeedlight, kind of lazy, but that is a thing.
Just hanging out with no flash.

Most d750 prime lens so zoom, and the sb700

I love natural-light photography. You have some great images.

GarysInSoCal: Whatta HUGE freakin waste of time AND money. Why charge 1000s of dollars for 3 lenses that offer an option that can easily be corrected in post in a matter of a few minutes. Yeah just keep wastin millions of dollars on redundant R&D Canon... that's what we've grown to expect from you. You should be worryin ALOT MORE about an answer to the D850 instead of fiddle F'ing around with 3 silly lenses that nobody's gonna buy.

Maybe you should actually spend some time researching tilt-shift before commenting on this lens. It's used for a lot more than simple perspective correction.

Then you don't understand what tilt actually does.

Shift may be able to be replicated in post... but tilt cannot.

vFunct: Nikon's entire line, from high-end to low-end cameras, to all the new lenses, to flashes is so, so good.

Just perfect.

The only next steps are improving on video. I demand full-frame 240fps for video! Slow-motion video is such an important art effect for cinematographers that work in fashion and music videos, as well as on other art-house films. And we absolutely need RAW video - not any s-log crap. But all that has to wait until the new CFexpress flash format arrives, since the 500MB/s speed limit of XQD is nowhere near enough. (24MB raw files at 120fps = 2.88GB/s)

I could also use an external monitor that also does full touch-to-focus. The lenses could also all be upgraded with stepper motors for zoom. Those drives should also be externally controllable.

And we need full bandwidth external recording of raw image files, using Thunderbolt or some other tech. A real professional multi-camera setup for event photographers should be connected to a single edit workstation.

True.... we rarely shoot in 240fps... 60 or 120 is typical.

Dester Wallaboo: Nikon's DR is nothing short of awesome. I think they have their tech dialed-in much better than Sony at this point. Sony is doing some ground-breaking work, but they still have issues that makes me a bit leery.

Like with every camera... I wait and see before I purchase. Nikon has had less issues, overall, than Sony.

If I didn't need to shoot RAW video with regularity our 5D3's... I'd probably jump ship.

quietrich: This is gonna beat, hammer, thump, pound, trounce and thrash Canon! It’s gonna bludgeon, cudgel, bash, batter and bulldoze them! It’s gonna murder them, massacre, slaughter, slay and crush them! It’s gonna it’s gonna…..(Breath, just breath, you’ll be fine).

Yeah but Sony will bring out the A7RSXZiii which will be a gazillion megapixels and have turbo-super-auto focus, with the quickest and smartest 3rd curtain electronic gizmos ever. My dad is stronger than your dad!

But it’s sooo heavy, I’ll need to get a special trolley-thing to move it, and a crane to lift it into place. Have to buy a truck, and adjust my health insurance. Why can’t they take that 3-tonne mirror out and make a camera that is perfect for my little hands? Why, why can’t they just validate my choices!

Always fun when a new camera is announced in DPR ;)

Loved this response. :D

And we all appreciate your passive-aggressive nature.

Interesting. Once out of RAW I work in 16bpc ProPhotoRGB. I've always converted to sRGB for 500px, but I guess I'll start leaving them as ProPhotoRGB.

Let me break it down for you... you said "That's not what most people see here. Sony seems the clear winner as far as colour rendition is concerned, and I agree to it. I see you own only Canon gear, that makes sense."

Which you were obviously implying that I only liked Canon simply because I own the gear. Which is a) a nice passive-aggressive troll attempt and b) flawed... which I pointed out in my response. I actually own much more gear than Canon. I've owned Sony, RED, and Panasonic gear. And I still do. What I pointed out is that I agree with the original post that Canon's color science is top-notch. You made the asshat response... I was responding to you asshattery.

And I saw your 'portfolio'... apparently your gear isn't getting you there.
