On article Nikon D7500 vs Nikon D500: Which is better for you? (387 comments in total)
In reply to:

digiart: Many say D7200 is a better option. Well, maybe. But D7200 still costs 1250 €, body only!

It's NOT an add... just a place where I have been getting great deals on cameras, lenses and studio gear for many years. If you are ever on Southern California... I'd recommend checking it out... ;)

No way... I saw several at the camera swapmeet with very low miles for $700 to $900... ;) www.bargaincamerashows.com

On article Pentax KP Review (646 comments in total)

RIDICULOUS battery life... come onnnnn Pentax! I'd have to buy THREE of your overpriced batteries to get me thru 1 day of shooting... not to mention having to change batteries at what I'm sure will be very inconvenient times. And your 27 point AF system SUCKS ... far behind the competition's better AF systems... and this camera is freakin HEAVY! Back to the drawing board... :P

Thought about MF... but after looking at the comparison images... I'm sorry... but my D810 at 1/3 of the price with 4 great lenses is close enough. CAN NOT justify that wild expense... ;)

OMG... I saw her TOTALLY UNRECOGNIZABLE image. This ignorant bimbo of a plaintiff has NO legal grounds for a lawsuit WHATSOEVER and ZERO legs to stand on. This case is gonna get tossed out of court faster than a turd curculating down a toilet. I'm quite sure her only motive for jumping on this '5 minutes of fame' bandwagon is to suckup whatever kind of sick publicity she can attain. Chipotle should counter-sue her for all legal expenses and defamation of character... ;)

I would agree. Full frame Nikon and Canon cameras, with quality glass attached, will probably render the best possible images a bride could possibly hope for. I've been shooting weddings for 30 years with Nikon cameras and lenses... never had a single complaint... ;)

Waaaaaaay too many CONS in the review for me to even consider this tinker toy. A half-way decent 'first offering'... but they SERIOUSLY need to go back to the drawing board and fix a few dozen of the F-ups... ;)

In reply to:

GarysInSoCal: SAD... four of the things I find MAJORLY important in my next DSLR camera purchase are 4 of the things this camera FAILED so miserably at... ELEVEN focus points (ridiculous when the competition has anywhere from 39 to 153)... battery life (400 shots/more ridiculous)... NO touchscreen (a option that I would have found majorly convenient to have)... and weight (substancially heavier than the competition... LOVE the price thou. SO PENTAX... back to the drawing board... come out with a K-80 that fixes all the problems listed above... at ALMOST the same cost... and bring your lens prices down somewhere close to Earth PLEASE!

Studio comparison scenes?... yeah right... that's an accurate comparison... LOL! Thank God there's reputable websites like DXOMark who base their sensor evaluations on 'real world testing figures' instead of what some near-sighted bug says who really can't see the light... LOL

The information provided on that 'bought and paid for by Pentax' forum you listed is NOT an unbiased accounting of the K70's TRUE sensor performance. In fact, there is no actual k70 sensor performance figures listed there AT ALL. Do you actually have a comparison between the 2 cameras I mentioned? That's the comparison you should have listed... ;)

LightBug... buzzzzz... wrong answer. The basic platform of that 24MP sensor is indeed constructed by Sony... BUT... the advanced processor and algorythm configurations programmed into the Nikon sensor results in superior sensor performance to Pentax's offering. Check DXOMark.com for the decidedly different results between both these camera sensors. (see D7200 VS K3Mark2/same sensor as K70)

OH... and please improve on your sensor's low noise/high ISO performance with better dynamic range... cause Nikon and Sony are whoopin your tail there also.

Yep... definitely what the web needs... 'RAISR super-resolution 2x'... an amazing utility that makes crappy cell phone photographers with zero editing skills look great... :D

GarysInSoCal: Fake bokeh?... fake EVERYTHING! Nothing about that images looks real. At that short of a depth of field... something on the girl (like hand holding towel) would have also been at least slightly out of focus... :)

F5.6 would NOT render that shallow depth of field appearance... would have to be something much closer to F2.8

Very noisey and extremely limited lens selection... sorry Fuji... NOT satisfied here.

CERTAIN DEATH to any decent (or even great) DSLR is 'very limited lens selection'. Sorry Fuji... hello Nikon D500!

In reply to:

thx1138: Hook line and sinker, the Sony price extortion continues unabated. Expect the A7RIII to be close to $4K and the A9 $5K.

True... I own both the D500 and D7200... two completely different animals... like them both... BUT... you'll have to pry my D810 from my cold dead hands... resolution and dynamic range is class leading... LOVE THAT CAM!... ;)

Three HUGE reasons why this camera WILL NOT sell. Batteries only last for 300+ shots... better buy at least 2 more extra $70 batteries if you plan on doin a half-day shoot... the only other lens available for this camera is $3,500... and at Sony's rate of new camera introduction... it will be outdated within a few months after you buy it... Jesus Sony... that's freakin RIDICULOUS!
