On article Setting new standards: Nikon D5 Review (504 comments in total)

While I am not giving up my Sony anytime soon and knowing I can never own a camera so big anymore one thing I can say is I sure love the output from Nikon more than any other.

OK guys it is all a joke. Sony paid off Leica to release this camera so that all of you who thought the A7rII was expensive would now look at as a bargain!

I must admit, I DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS CAMERA

I am pretty amazed at the Apple fans (and I happen to be one, but am not married to Apple) berate Windows and their new products. Granted, Microsoft has had a questionable past, however, those of you old enough to remember, even with Jobs, Apple also had a questionable past.

Microsoft IS getting their act together. Their newest products are sold out. Quite frankly, if it were not for the entrenched ecosystem of their apps on iOS, they would be facing more competition from Microsoft than they currently are. Microsoft is waking up, have indeed released some fantastic products over the last month and the cross platform capabilities of Windows 10 IS BETTER than iOS and El Capitan. Windows 10 still has some work to do before I can truly embrace it in a "tablet" format BUT it is very close.

While I am not calling for the demise of Apple or its entrenched user base, Microsoft is making great headway

Just a Photographer: This seems like a very sexy device and leave the iPad Pro far behind in specifications, performance and possibilities.

The one point Dark Goob makes that is legitimate is that as a "tablet" there are compromises Windows 10 makes to access menus, etc. This is definitely true and Microsoft needs to work with its software developers (which by the way, they are already doing, especially with Adobe which is the most important for those of us on this site) to make the "touch" experience in Tablet mode a better experience. The tablet mode in Windows 10 also needs some refinement. Having said that and while I still prefer the iPad as a tablet, once these small tweaks are made, Windows has real winners here.

I am using the Surface 3 because of it's LTE capabilities and do find it not as polished as a tablet BUT it runs real programs, not apps. Apps are fine when they do the "enough" but they usually don't do enough.

Windows 10 will be the best OS Windows has ever released and after their next big update (coming soon) may be the best OS for all things, from tablet to laptops, except for Apple fans.

BelePhotography: How about a report on the Surface Book? 3000x2000 resolution , 2 full USB ports, SD card reader and 2 times faster than an equivalent MacBook. The Pro is cool, but the big news for Photographers is the Surface Book in my opinion.

The Surface Book looks awesome.

ZoranHR: They should first make windows 10 work properly.
I dont know for the rest of you,but my windows 10 pro is a nightmare experience.
These hardware improvements are really secondary.

Not sure what you are talking about OR if you have even used Windows 10. I am an Apple guy with but one exception, one desktop and Windows 10 is the best OS I have ever used. Windows FINALLY got it right. Unlike Cook who recognizes iOS will never merge with OsX because of differences, Microsoft has done what Cook can't.

Priaptor: You want a "tablet" to do real work, wait till Oct 6th and get the new Surface Pro 4, which is what the iPad Pro should have been.

If only Microsoft understood sooner how much more advanced their hardware was than Apples, we wouldn't have had to wait so long for the ultimate combination of Windows 10 and a Surface Pro 4 that perform real computer tasks, rather than apps

Agree. I don't see the Surface dying anytime soon. In typical Microsoft fashion, they were clueless as to what they created. First it was the RT disaster, then Windows 8.1 disaster which led many (including myself) to disregard the Surface. Now with Windows 10, I am using Surface 3 with LTE, love it and look forward to the new crop of Surface Pro 4.

While I know the iPad Pro will do well, from my perch, I think Cook not wanting to merge iOS and MacOS is a big mistake for those of us looking for crossplatform compatibility, despite the current ecosystem of apps. One could run both, although, it hasn't been so successful on the Windows platform, BUT, lets hope Surface Pro 4 + Windows 10 changes that.

I REALLY like Windows 10 and think Microsoft actually got it right with Windows 10 and their Surface products.

Surface Pro 3 is fine, depending upon the processor and what you are running. "Rumor" has it that the screen will be better on the 4, be able to run longer due to the processor, have better graphics support using Intel's new graphic chip and come in configurations with more memory (as high as 16 gigs) and rumors have it that you may be able to get it with a 1TB drive.

All in a lighter, more svelte package.

Rumor also has it in a 14" variant.

We will see on the 6th

On article Opinion: Did Sony just do the impossible? (1076 comments in total)

Yeah there are some issues I would like to see answered. However, this camera and the almost released Batis 25 and 85 WILL be my go to. Now I just need a long range prime and all is good.

On article Alpha dog: Hands-on with Sony a7R II (1118 comments in total)

I doubt it is a coincidence that the release date of what appears to be such an awesome camera is similar to the release of what appears to be amazing Batis lenses from Zeiss specifically for Sony mirrorless cameras.

On paper at least, this could be an awesome combination.

Hey when Domino's admitted their pizza sucked and changed directions, sales sored. One of the great PR strategies that few understand. Nikon obviously learned from the Domino's pizza strategy, although, I still can't say I am a "Domino's pizza fan"
