In reply to:

keepreal: As I have been saying all along, lenses are two big, too heavy and too expensive. Only a proportion of camera users need wide aperture lenses. Unless you actually like EVF, the Nikon D750 is still the new D750, What a waste of brilliant technology this is.

In this review "Nikon's aging D750..." what nonsense.

We all should listen more two you.

I also think old comments (made on previously published parts of the review) should be separated from comments made for the final complete review.

Lot of envy loaded off here.

You must have experienced much pain in the last 2 decades.

barringtonpro1: Personally I like this, but most people can't tell the difference between cell phone quality chip and medium format quality chip, images. The rules of 1950's format still apply but, too few notice anymore. The "photo drawing true compression" from it's long focal length lenses and short distance must be beautiful.

The window of opportunity with this is maybe, 7 years, serving the uber rich. Wish I could be there.

"h2k - of the people I know, including myself, almost all photos are deleted, hardly any are saved. Most are not worth saving except family and friend photos. Not many know how to take a good photo, especially for most cell phone and tablet hotographers."

Mshot - i certainly agree that most photos deserve deletion, and i regret that my current cam doesn't have batch deletion, as had a previous model.

But i heard several snapshotters with lots of ugly pics tell me, "why delete, storage is cheap and you never know..." Anyway i'm all for deleting too, and i try hard to weed out as much as possible. I think 1 keeper per day - seen over 365 days - would be a nice rate.

I don't think so. I think they look at a photo for half a second and move to the next photo. I never heard that anybody deleted a photo.

Zdman: DPR the masters at click bait. 746 comments on an opinion piece and counting. Some new camera announcements don't even get that type of interest. Bravo.

YES! Anything that attracts discussion must be click-bait!

Dheorl: I never knew weather sealing could be aggressive. Does it simply beat the rain into submission?

I never knew weather sealing could be aggressive.

Just my thought.

Does it simply beat the rain into submission?
---
Though not this.

Nope, just shoos the rain away, while passive weather sealing just sits there and watches the rain bounce off it.

And that neither.

davids8560: Those who choose Nikon are just better people all around, and in every way - wiser, more talented, rich in character, and gifted with superior intelligence. When the social credit system is implemented Nikon shooters surely will get the highest scores and enjoy the most freedoms and prestige.

Poor David boy.

Better to wait for iPhone or Samsung / Sony.

Well, whatever you may mean. If you don't even try to be understandable, let's unsubscribe from here.

Obviously you can't imagine anybody *without* installing Facebook and their ilk on the phone. I can, though.

Does this sound like "Atomic Shotgun Inferno" intentionally?

Wishing them killer sales.

Doesn't the photo look a bit HDRed? Especially his dark face looks like it must have been dark red. Do they want to make some kind of point?

Interesting report. Would be nice to see additional comparison to in-camera JPGs in the final test.

It was obvious from the outset. Are you that worried about your readers that you have to underline it? Show some courage!

I also would have preferred the article without this disclaimer - and with an even drier, more tongue-in-cheek tone. Still good fun though, thanks.

Do you need to exhibit your parochial mindset here for all to see? Who's ever heard of that currency anyway.

This is presented as if there had never been a Gorillapod that can cling to things about as well.

But actually, there *had* been a Gorillapod around for a while.
