Why? Because most of DPR commentators find it objectionable. A golden rule for purchasing quality equipment: if the diehard gearheads hanging around the DPR object and rant, then it is a nugget for >real< photographers and men with real moustaches.

Yes, if they attach moustaches.

LessMirrored19: Nikon has underestimated Sony's capabilities.
The two battery types have similar Watt Hour capacity. But the Sony electronics has twice the performance per watt.

When your competitor is twice as power efficient as you are, you are in some serious trouble. This goes for any industry.
Twice the performance/watt is very significant.

This will not be easy to fix for Nikon. They have clearly underestimated the Mirrorless game, and they stepped up with inferior technology

That sort of power consumption is deliberate, and is required, because there is a lot within the software and within those cameras that Nikon needs to test, put under stress, and analyse further before optimising it. The battery works harder and that is necessary.

I cannot remember that any pro photographer with a pro SLR ever had two rolls of film loaded in the same camera at the same time.
But I am glad to see that many amateurs around here did exactly that.

vFunct: Thankfully, Nikon didn't use the slow Eye-AF that Sony uses and instead uses their own better AF systems.

Sony really needs to get rid of their Eye AF if they want photographers to use their cameras.

Nikon dropped the eye-AFis and is working on the implementation of the cat-face AF system, because cats portraits are what most of the mirrorless cameras are used for.

Zvonimir Tosic: The most overpriced merchandise around is not the Z7, but the snow of comments and demands posted by the noobs who are all faking to be hard-core professionals.

I am glad you are paying attention.

KISAP: I have to applause what Nikon has done, both cameras are quite good, but with only one XQD card slot, no eye-af, battery only 300+ shots per charge (Sony 700+ shots), not enough to draw converted Sony users to Nikon but will keep Nikon users using Nikon, may be this is what Nikon wants.

What about this: Nikon wants to start somewhere. Better to start off a brand new system with a decent advanced amateur camera and a few average lenses than prematurely and stupidly persuade pros to buy into the unknown, and not yet sufficiently tested out new system.
I call that responsible behaviour, which proves Nikon is a brand that understands professional market and its demands.

simmybear31: One card slot = not for pro's earning their living. Too much of a risk on a wedding/event/anything shoot - sorry Nikon that is a total fail!

Let me guess: you are a noob who fantasises to be Indiana Jones of digital photography.

Thanks Nikon you saved my money!

Why your money? Professionals buy equipment with other people's money.

In reply to:

DiffractionLtd: They probably had their reasons, but no IBIS is ridiculous in this day.

No IBIS because the sensor is way bigger than the lens image circle; no need to keep it inside the image circle. The second reason is that IBIS depletes the battery faster.

On article Leica M10-P sample gallery (80 comments in total)

With M9 and M10, Leica tries to emulate Kodachrome film as much as possible. For younger viewers of the DPR, who heard of, but never saw developed film nor the positive, or do not know what Kodachrome is, images they see in the gallery may look like a "weird colour rendition", which "the (insert any name here) camera company beats easily".

On article Sony takes five at the 2018-19 EISA awards (303 comments in total)
In reply to:

Azathothh: Sony in a head title again. DPR doing it's thing...

It may look like the conspiracy, when the article does NOT focus on EISA awards as an event, to educate readers about the wide array of awards, but only takes out of it certain things / manufacturers.
Any taking out of wider context, and putting in the headline, is bias.

Nikon took some awards too. They are not worthy of mentioning? Only Sony, Sony, Sony, Sony, Sony?

Posting the results in Zimbabwean dollars would be really impressive then. Wheelbarrows of money, inflated and trustworthy as the company itself.

Zvonimir Tosic: This is why Sony, an electronics giant, depreciates their cameras like crazy, treats them as gizmos and releases new models every few months. Model after model after model, with rapid depreciation, so that they can claim "incredible sales of _new_ FF cameras".
Wow, Sony, what a "plan" to steal the deal. Then, in conjunction with celebrity YouTube channels, follows the drumbeating into forced sales of _new models_.
In this industry, Sony a synonym for exaggeration and swindle. But it is good to have such a brazen, obstinate company in the midst of others – it shows how those others can be quite different and respectable.

I am not ranting *against* Sony. On the contrary! I wish that they *continue* and show, with new and purposeless FF camera models released *every week* if they please, what a despicable model of "scoring success" they have chosen. More they do it, more they show their true feathers, and what they really think of their own cameras released as such.
And more the Youtube celebrities love what Sony does, and sing odes about it, more we know about the true character of those personages.

Osa25: But then will they no longer test beta firmware?

You are testing it each time you buy a new Sony's camera, because of the forced sales model they employ.
