Am I the only one not finding any metering mode button on its body?

I like them, although they look mostly a collector's item. By the way, as a side note, aren't they like the 4 Gundam Seed Destiny mobile suits, similar but different? It's only me having this kind of impression? Especially for the tech and large pentaprism.

EXkurogane: Here's a reminder to all the haters of the D6 (or any dslr for the matter)

The professionals are making money with a tool you deem outdated and overpriced. Meanwhile your photos are not superior to what these pros take despite owning a camera you think is superior. And, instead of trying to improve yourselves, some of you spend your time masturbatiing over a spec sheet on dpreview.

A camera is just a tool. There's no need to be so obsessed.

Chapeau !

Ixoye: Buying this dinosaur must be considered a very poor financial decision today.

Within 10 yrs someone may have spent more money on 10 different iPhones, go figure which is the wrong decision.

Dodi73: Burst mode ?
It looks like the equivalent of CL in Nikon
Rather, besides locking, that camera looks everything but silent.

I am sure there's the SILENT mode, yet also for a "normal" mode it seems a bit loud

ZurichPhoto: D5 owner here ... and someone who has it in their business plan and budget to buy 1 or 2 D6s this year. Nikon, it's time to get these in the hands of some photographers for unbiased reviews. Fair or not, there is a consensus that these cameras are underwhelming. You need to counteract the specs with some performance testing, or own that apart from an improved AF system that this is just a half-hearted, "we need to put something out" camera. I can stick with my D5s for awhile -- or buy the D6. Help me make that decision. Not the time to be shy.

Exactly.. this silence is deafening and counterproductive

rbach44: Can’t wait to see the comments calling on the death of the pro SLR. Can’t wait to see how many mirrorless cameras will NOT be in use at the next Olympics.

These cameras are for real pros, not the spec sheet warrior/blogger types. I’m sure it’ll sell wonderfully.

Let's hope there WILL be the next Tokyo Olympics (!)

XeroJay: Truly a Nikon F6 for the current era. By that, I mean a last of its kind, made for the last of a narrow, stubborn audience, who insist on clutching their relics and scowling at the newer greater advances that are here. There's not much flagship about this flagship series anymore. Enjoy your swansong.

I wish your camera still works like my F6 does 13 yrs after I got it.

In reply to:

Raziel Orlando: It's a D5s but Nikon named it D6 for marketing. It seems that is the Nikon DSLR swang song, just like the F6 back in the day.

Well actually I still have the F6 since 2007 (and works great!)
.
The problem is we have two distinct issues here:
1) Is D6 as powerful as it could have possibly been? No. 1DX Mk III is definitely better from the ground, at least specs-wise
.
2) Is D6 good enough for its intended audience and probably the best Nikon camera we have ever had? Yes it is.
.
It's like seeing the glass half empty or half full. I confess the first comment I had about it was "Meh"; however from D4s it could be a worthy upgrade for the AF alone. And probably keeping it until I'm alive, I guess. I'm not interested in super duper mirrorless cameras. A D6 has (almost) all I could desire from a pro camera, let alone MP ( I wished about 30 but what can you do ? )
.
Bottom line: Will I get it? Yes I will, unless something really bad comes out in the reviews. My D4s is near 400k and AF is the only compartment I feel I need an upgrade.

Ok so when we'll see all this bunch of improvements actually on a smartphone?
Will it be with the OP8, 8T, 8TPRO or OP9 ? This is both exciting but also quite an achievement needing A WHOLE LOT of work. Good to know they are working on it, next is to know when it will be available to the public.

Hey Mike. It isn't fair comparing USA to CHINA or NK. They have always been the bad guys, right? Wasn't USA the Land of Freedom ? Sorry but here really someone over there is losing their mind... Beware!

Dodi73: I wonder if with all these new lens possibilities, a 21-90 or 21-135 will ever come to life

Focal lengths between 21 and 135 mm are the originary Leica lens setup for documenting the world - I'm not discussing 21 vs 20, just giving a generic suggestion (especially, on a side note, for those cameras with smaller sensors that offer 24 to 600,1000,2000 or more mm as if everyone would be a potential voyeur to spy on a woman tanning at the other side of the city) that a good working range on an adequate sensor would be a 20/21-135 (if not, outstretching it, a 18/180 but I think it should be a one of a kind lens with a sensor at its bottom, rather than a camera + lens setup)

Brava Tamron ! In my case, the 35-150 sounds promising.

mmm... tools for selecting and rearranging/copying/pasting data through yet I don't see anything new to work on skin (primarily) which should be the key topic for this software which always leaves everything to photoshop. Heck, even Aperture has a basic "skin smoothing" or "retouch" function, why Capture One can't add one ? It's ok working on colors, masks etc but also something else would be nice. Now, gotta wait to see what these plugins will be able to add..
Actually, despite all the bells and whistles, for being a release 12 (and NOT an 11.4) I'm quite disappointed.
