Zoc: A list of things removed from the D3300 (some of these were also gone from the D3400)
Microphone port
10-pin accessory terminal
IR receiver (for remote triggers)
ISO button
AF/M switch (from bundled lens)
VR On/Off switch (from bundled lens)

Added:
Bluetooth

A lot of that stuff was genuinely useful and got used by me (a complete newb). I think this camera would be a lot more difficult to use for new users than the D3300 or D3400. The omission of the IR ports is especially perplexing. That was very very useful, and only needed a very cheap accessory. Why drop that and keep something as useless as an HDMI port? I can't imagine very many people ever hook up their DSLR to a TV, especially when you need a special cable to do it.

Here is a picture of D3300 vs D3400 mount

@christiankoehler Compatibility with D lenses was lost with D3400.. the mount lacks the tab that senses the aperture ring to be in the closed position...

Can't meter with D lenses either..

bolador: Samsung S8 Aperture is f/1.7 so any comparison about lowligth performance improvement should be done between f/1.5 and f/1.7.. I dont think is a half stop..
The f/2.5 may give lesser vignetting or better sharpness..
And please.. diffraction limit is related to actual aperture. Not the 35mm equivalent that is only equivalent for DoF ..

Thats not true..you hit diffraction limit at about f/16 in fullframe, f/11in APS-C and f/4.5 in 1/2.33 sensor.. this round numbers.. but who cares ..🤦🏿‍♂️

FuhTeng: Neat feature. Now please, bring it to all your other cameras, at the very least those currently available from the Nikon.com website. Come on Nikon, don't be dense.

And please bring D9 AF-area to the D500 too.

D9 was replaced by D25.. does not work properly .. but... do you mean a tiny single point with its non selectable points around? They don't even match what you see in the focus screen...

walker2000: I think F1.5 is better than F2.4 except corners. This is due to diffraction. What do you think?

Nope.. just aberrations.. diffraction limit is reached when closing aperture...

MJ9: I'm planning to buy my first real camera. And I'm choosing between Canon M100 and Fuji X-A3.
I really like the retro design of the Fuji but based on reviews the autofocus is bad. Is the Canon M100 really that good over the Fuji X-A3?
or any recommendation?
Can't afford the Sony.

AF speed => DSLR

bolador: Does it have USB 3.0 host port? Or do I have to wait/waste battery for an hour to transfer a 64GB XQD card over USB 2.0?

The thing is useless for any other card but SD.. 💩💩💩

Here in Argentina as in several South American countries Nikon has only one official provider (the same in most countries) prices are as high as almost doubles grey (smuggled) market.. for one year of warranty you may buy two cameras instead.. you can find unofficial service easily.. is the reason why in some countries you find canon almost exclusively...
Put an eye in your resellers Nikon..

Really good tool..
A stand alone phone app that works without signal in the field looks like a good idea.
Perhaps shutter times below 1" should be expressed as fractions of a second nor as decimals.
