That's a pretty screaming D850 recommendation coming from that Canon girl... shame every store on Planet Earth is SOLD OUT on the D850... :P

nikon flash in the pan ;-)

No intelligent camera shopper will purchase 3-5 thousand dollars in camera gear from Amazon. Porch theives are making a killing off of Amazon house deliveries.

Congrats Nikon on taking over the world of Full-Frame... NOW... come out with some new (fast) G-Series prime lenses (all F1.8's in the very usable range from 70-150mm) that make purchasing a D700/D3/D600/D610/D750/D810/D850 a good investment.

GarysInSoCal: NIKON... wake the fug up!... FIRE your research and development team for making a $12,000 lens that less than 1% of your camera owners will purchase... and make thousands of reasonably priced lenses that both Nikon camera users (and Sony camera users with adapters) will purchase. Want to alienate your camera buyers and turn your dwindeling fan base to other camera manufacturers?... keep doing what your doing and continue to lose your financial aszes.

Actually... I'm missing ALL those lenses... cause they haven't been made yet... NIKON... but THEY SHOULD BE. I'd buy at least 3 of them the minute they came out... :D

OK... I'll play your game... how about all these in (cost friendly) fast focus G-Series prime lenses... a 70mm F1.4... a 105mm F1.8... a 135mm F1.8... a 150mm F2.0... and a new 180mm F2.0 or F2.8. Nothing less than 70mm as the zooms have those wide angle ranges covered... ;)

Current and very happy owner of the Nikon 200-500 ED-VR. I wouldn't even buy this lens at half the current asking price. Nikon... WAKE UP!... what your lens buyers want is new lower-cost and lighter weight, short telephoto G series primes... like a 105 F1.8... or 120 F1.8... or a 150 F2.8... or a 70 F1.4. Make these lenses and beat the after-market crappies to the punch... ;)

BOYCOTT APPLE... a 50% battery discount is STILL a 200% profit for Apple... buy a freakin clue you Apple lemmings. Nothing like trying to paint themselves as 'the good guy' when they're still screwin you over.

oldphotog2: Yesterday, 4 Dec '17, attended my granddaughter's school Xmas program and had to use my old D-200 & 28-200 lens because my N-1 system 30-110 fell apart in my camera bag. I must admit it was nice to pull out the dslr & feel the quality of build, the heft & not swaying a little as using the N-1 V-3. I like the V-3 & lenses 6.5-13 & 70-300, the weight is great, but dislike the small censor & its depth of field. When carrying my bag with the dslr stuff I couldn't believe the weight, just picking it up was a mistake for my back! I was leaning towards upgrading to a D500 but the expense is out of pocket. Thinking of the D7500 but it took away the AIS lens tab (eliminates two of my old lenses). I've used Nikon for over 40 yrs, switching is hard, yet Sony does entice, just too expensive to make the switch. The D850 would be wonderful, but FX is budget wise is out & too heavy. Shame a larger mirrorless isn't developed by Nikon, but then here comes another batch of lenses!

Better yet... grab a D810... and laugh at the rest... :D

@TeilaDay... Sorry sweetheart... it's a physical impossibility for you to draw ANY conclusions on the D10... it doesn't exist yet. Nikon's most pro-level digital camera is currently the D5. If you can beam yourself several years into the future and return with those statistics, I think we'd all be interested in seeing them... :D

You're RIGHT... the camera is NOT relevant... in fact it's NEVER been relevant. It's been too easy for years to buy a D800E/D810/D850 and come extremely close to this camera's sensor performance... while only spending 1/3 of the Pentax's price. SMART shoppers by cameras that give them the most bang for their buck... and that's probably the lion's share of photographers on this site.

In reply to:

straylightrun: Not a real upgrade. As an r series resolution body, they should have increased the resolution. Thats the entire point of the r line. This is more like an "a7r II mII" model. Sony's incremental upgrades are getting too ridiculous.

@RandyPD You make a supportive reference to DXOMark... then you say you really don't care about them. Do you make it a habit of just running around and kicking yourself in the azs all the time?... LOL!
