nicolaiecostel: The lens doesn't even change and the body is minimal, how can there be a light leak ?!

Get your facts straight, the D750 does not leak light. There is a small bevel on some early cameras that only in some conditions of flare blocks a bit of the reflection and the flare appears on most of the image, but not all.

It's been long fixed.

DFPanno: Let's not be unfair.

Early 5D3s had a light leak too.

If you want a camera that doesn't suffer such introductory problems buy a Nikon.

The K3 Pentax had many issues since it's launch, search online. Many other Pentax cameras have had issues. Bad focusing under red light, low temperature functioning problems, flash breaking up, locking up issues, battery, mirror issues, buttons falling, etc.

All manufacturers had problems, Nikon too had many problems as well, Canon had some but not so glaring.

First the price chop, now this. Next they'll probably pay you to have one.

marike6: Good eye and superb IQ for a well done gallery. The "Provia" sim is near and dear to my heart, beautifully subtle colors without cartoonish over-saturation.

I like saturated shots, when I process my shots I often use Nik plugin and I apply the Superia simulation over my original file. I rarely apply the Velvia filter because it's to much over the top.

I never actually shot Velvia film because by the time I got into film photography, circa 2007, there were no places left in my town to develop E6 positives.

I find them undersaturated, far from cartoonish oversaturation.

I find them rather modest, with dull color.

jaykumarr: Places matter. MP s don't.

Well, when you have to display a wall sized print at Photokina, like some pros do, MP's quite matter.

If you need to produce shots printed at high DPI, MP's matter.
True, it's a niche product, but some people will really benefit from it.

Yeah, 15 fps without focus, who needs that ?! My iPad probably shoots faster than my nikon but there's not comparison otherwise. Ergonomics means having a great viewfinder, a good grip on the camera, dedicated buttons for the main functions, good battery life, and mirorless cameras are mostly poor at that. The A7 does look like it's nice to hold but having an electronic viewfinder and poor battery life would not make it my first choice. And it's all downhill from there, how pleasurable is it to hold a fuji for an extended amount of time ? How nice is it to use such an EVF in a low light scenario. The guys from DPR jokingly tried to walk looking thru a EVF in a dark parking lot and they got dizzy from the lag. I might be overly picky because I rely on my cameras for work but I feel that people that dismiss DSLR's never even picked one or don't have any interest in serious photography. I, on the other hand, did try some mirrorless cameras from Samsung, Oly and Nikon and were terrible.

Scottelly: Really? ANOTHER article about the new Nikons? How many articles do you people plan to write about these two new cameras DPreview? Yeah, I get it . . . it's big news. Still, I've seen more than three articles on here in the past week! I don't like the whole overload of articles about these two cameras, when there are cameras about which you haven't posted ANYTHING. Two articles I could take. But three in a week or two? REALLY?

Chill, this is an epic moment for us nikonians. Take a look at how many sony articles there are.

Remember the times when photography enthusiasts raved about large viewfinders, dedicated buttons, grip comfort, good AF, great ISO and DR, fast framerate, great metering, fast lenses and people did not mind carrying the weight and paying the price ?

Now everyone raves about cameras with LCD's for viewfinders, with abysmal battery life that can't focus properly on a moving subject and call DSLR's outdated.

Heck, a guy even said he prefers his S6 samsung to the Nikon D5.

I am stunned to read comments around here and to think this is the direction in which the camera market and photography trends are going.

In reply to:

tecnoworld: The title is very misleading. Perhaps the boundaries of APSC DSLR produced by Nikon, bot not general boudaries.

Samsung has a better APSC camera out for more than one year and Sony has a lot of interesting offerings as well.

D500 is as most a bit better than Canon 7D-mkII. But just a little bit.

Seriously, the discontinued NX1 that can't focus properly in daylight ? You have got to be kidding.

Mate, what are you on about ? DSLR's run rings around mirorless cameras in performance and ergonomics, mirorless cameras need to "innovate" with various gizmos just to seem like they are an alternative for DSLR's to the tech oriented enthusiasts.

Olympus sure like to brag, don't they. I think their E5 had the fastest AF in world at some point. Whatever happened to that ?!

In reply to:

Pandimonium: I think the dslr can be pushed a little farther yet. These haven't got IBIS which Pentax and Oly use for all kind of interesting stuff. A Hybrid VF (if it can be done) would be marvelous. A zooming mount (why not) to make every lens into a macro lens and make the mount more adaptable to different lenses (nobody will to that, they want to sell their own stuff).

IBIS is inferior for use with certain lenses and subjects. IS has been and is the best way, hence Nikon and Canon are still using it. Just because it's different doesn't meen it;s better.

In reply to:

bernardf12: Guys I am sorry but your headline is misleading. The DSLR boundary was drawn by Sony with EVF (See what you will get), IBIS and video AF-C and these cameras do not have that. You may want to add 'action photography' to the headline to make it a true statement.

Lol

tsebis: I would say NX1 i still better than this ..

Better, but it didn;t manage to get precise focus with a fast lens even in good light. Yeah ..

So good they dropped it alltogether.

EthanP99: Introducing a new mirrorless camera:

Apsc
10fps
153 af points
4k video *crop mode only

All for just $2000

If this were a mirrorless camera, we would be very disappointed.

Any mirorless is a dissapointment compared to a DSLR.
