BigBen08: I want a Nikon smartphone.

Imagine and old Nokia phone, duct tape, and a Nikon camera.

Take a low quality lens and smear some extra grease on the front element. There you go, poor man's Thambar!

AI is the new buzzword, so it must be good.

The reason is not the rise of smartphones, but the fact that these cameras couldn't add any extra value on top of what you get from your smartphone. On the contrary, smartphone vendors keep improving their camera apps, whereas the likes of Nikon thought they can get away with selling the same non-innovate stuff for years.

DanielFjall: But how can a camera get more than a perfect score?

This isn't a percentage. A score of 100 doesn't mean it is perfect.

Waterengineer: So Sony will miss the 2018 olympics with this lens. Well done, Sony.

You mean both of them?

JackM: A question I've always had about this series... why bother with the central fake prism hump? All it does is smear nose grease on the LCD. Why not put the EVF off in the corner, flush with the rest of the body, like on the a6500? Or pop-up, like the RX100?

Why not clean your nose before using the camera?

M W B G: Consume, consume, consume. Slight improvements, I need it. Consume

So +1 stop low light sensitivity, pixel shift, 2x fps, 2x AF speed, EV-3 instead of EV-2, better EVF, 2.2x battery capacity, 2x SD slots, and much more are slight improvements for you?

Paul B Jones: Welcome news. Interested to know if a 600 f/4 is in the works.

Why not use a 1.4 teleconverter?

Tons o Glass 0 Class: You know what sounds more ridiculous than a 200/1.8L? An EF PE 300/1.8.

Check the Zeiss 1700/4 to get an idea how large such a lens would be. In fact, it would even be about 30% larger.

In reply to:

(unknown member): I think I prefer the Cannon camera with the built-in prism. I find it easier taking a photo with an optical viewfinder.

Apparently EVFs have come a long way. People no longer can tell any difference to OVFs.

In what ways does it fall short of what the competition has to offer?

Scottelly: Travel to a small island far from the mainland. That's the best way to avoid light pollution. If you travel by boat at night on a clear night, you can see the Milkyway really well. It can be really beautiful. You'll need to wait until you get on land to shoot photos though, or the stars will make weird trails in your photos.

Even better, go on a mountain.

Patrick50: It's curious to see that the D800e has a better score in sport than the D850 (2979 vs 2660). How they explain that ?

Who do you expect to explain this? Nikon or dxo?

Link | Posted on Oct 10, 2017 at 23:09 UTC

I don't think the dimension of this comes anywhere close to the original 'one more thing' announcement by Steve Jobs. Did Google really use that phrase at all for this camera?

Rooru S: Sponsored content and review sites don't match very well...At least ethically.

I mean, if you're going to talk nicely about one product because they're paying you money. How do you justify later or before to talk objectively about the same product or to mention it on comparison articles?

I read the Sponsored Content FAQ and it doesn't convince me. Good thing they're labeling Sponsored content now so I can begin skipping them from now on.

Yes we Europeans are more resistant. Only aliens and their allies from America would deny that!

Mike CH: Sponsored content? On a review site?

Really?

The content here is offered free of charge, so don't complain that the site somehow has to make money.
