GarysInSoCal: Actually Canon fanboys have alot to look forward to. As retarded and assinine as this camera is, the 6DMark3 should be leaps and bounds above this ridiculous offering, placing it somewhere close to where it should have been 3 years earlier... :D

What direction? Maybe 4K... maybe 2 card slots... maybe a headphone jack... maybe a far better focusing system at least matching Nikons 51point... or something much closer to Nikons 153 point... maybe 30+ megapizels... maybe some acceptable dynamic range instead of almost NONE. Need I go on?... :P

Totally agree... MAC SUCKS... download a boatload of 'PC Compatible' editing software here: http://www.mediachance.com

Photobrush ROCKS for editing pics. 100% of my 500 image portfolio was edited with it here: http://www.modelmayhem.com/2623.

Photobrush has cost me $40 for 20 years of usage... not a penny more. MAC is hoping you'll morgage you house to finance those ridiculous Adobe suites... :P

GarysInSoCal: WELL OVER TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS! By the time you purchase this camera and the 2 lenses you need (and extremely limited lens options at that/only 3)... that's what you're lookin at... it's quite heavy and DOES NOT HAVE 4K!... WTH! NO THANKS... I'll wait for the 50 megapixel (and 4K) Nikon D820/850 (which will be a high dynamic range/low light monster) in August at 1/4 that price... ;)

I mentioned camera body ONLY... not lenses... of which Nikon has DOZENS that will work seemlessly with that future D820/D850 offering... ;)

When 'the consummation' pics are complete... they should post some 'storytelling images' to a 'pay per view' pornsite or 'live webcam site' (you know the ones I'm talkin bout Willis) and watch 1000s of dollars roll in every day. That would easily 'finance their entire wedding' in less than a week... :D

Opps... you're right... the battery contacts aren't in the battery compartment... they're on the hotshoe at the top of the camera... my booboo. The battery is removed and placed in the grip... EINSTEIN! I think those germs the poor doctor has are festering in his grey matter... :D

BUZZZZZ... Wrong Answer!... 3rd party grips will run an arm up thru the battery compartment and make connection on those contacts, while fastening at the tripod hole. They're accomplished this task on dozens of previous Nikon and Canon DSLRs in the past... ;)

On article Nikon D7500 vs Nikon D500: Which is better for you? (397 comments in total)
In reply to:

endofoto: Nikon D7200 has a better sensor than D500 in every aspect, I think Nikon is going backwards to create a stupid video camera to shoot 4k rather than a true camera. Nikon D5 sensor has a DR like 10 years old cameras. It does not make sense.

BUZZZZZZ... Wrong Answer! I have both cameras... and although the resolution is very slightly stronger on the D7200... the D500 produces cleaner, lower noise images at higher ISOs... ;)

Oh dont worry about having no battery grip YET... cause half a dozen after market discount battery grip providers will be coming to your rescue before the end of the year... ;)

On article 2017 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras $900-1200 (476 comments in total)

With its strong Nanocoat lens options, the NIkon D7200 is the CLEAR 'image quality winner' in this price point... with strong low light autofocus, the 'best in class' dynamic range, great buffer and one of the best low light sensors... few others in this category can come close... ;)

GarysInSoCal: WAKE UP NIKON... this is a TOTALLY STUPID offering... and it will NEVER sell at this ridiculous price point. LENSES LIKE THIS prove to me that Nikon has lost touch with reality and what the populous is REALLY looking for... no wonder they are losing their azs in the financials... too busy wasting millions in R&D on lame offerings like this. Truly sad really... cause I'm a 30+ year Nikon shooter. The reason people buy fast lenses is for 'subject isolation'... impossible to achieve with this lens at this focal length as it's depth of field is way too strong.

Me and millions of other photographers are still waiting for your DX offering of the 14-90 (F4) ED-VR Nanocoat. Now THERE is a lens you can ask $1200 for and people will buy it... myself definitely included... fantastically versatile zoom range and very sharp... ;)

rjp85... I'm waiting to see all your endless amount of examples... meanwhile... here's a fast lens 'telephoto example' from me... ;)

GarysInSoCal: These images are NOTHING that a short Nikon zoom at 1/3 of the price and 1/2 of the weight could have accomplished... sorry... NOT EVEN impressed... :P

With cameras that produce excellent results at 3200 ISO (D750/D700/Df/D500/D610)... who needs F1.4 anymore?... and my meds are called VITAMINS!... :D

WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER on this lens... it will be sharp... even wide-open at F5.6... it's a much better (and wider) offering than the much more expensive 12-24 (non VR)... and alot lighter in weight. May buy one depending upon the reviews... time will tell... ;)

Hey Nikon... your 16-80 ED-VR Nanocoat was a noble offering... BUT... it's not quite wide angle enough for real estate interiors... and not quite telephoto enough for headshots. At 90 millimeters (on the 14-90) it's telephoto enough for headshots at F4 with an out of focus background that will all crave. And how about a 50-150 ED-VR (F2.8) Nanocoat for around $1200USD... there's another great and fast telephoto zoom I'd pick up in a heartbeat... ;)
