I agree with you.
For me the photo camera is only a tool for making photo images. And the focus is on the images, not on the tool.

Biowizard: Along with using ancient Videocon tubes to measure sensor sizes, and applying crop factors to all sensors smaller than 135, but never for sensors bigger, one more thing perplexes me about the world of photography: "GREY Imports"?!!

We live in a global economy; I can by my laptop from the USA, my wine from France, my show posters from Italy. It's up to me. So why do CAMERA manufacturers, almost uniquely, try to punish those who buy a camera in one country, for use in another? What is GREY about me picking up a new camera body while on vacation in Japan and bringing it back to the UK? Why should my warranty cease to apply?

It's high time the concepts of "GREY" imports and a "GREY" market were banned.

Amen to that!

Zoran K: "Nikon do Brasil Ltda. will end the sale of cameras, lenses and photographic accessories in the Brazilian market, currently marketed exclusively through its e-commerce arm, the Nikon Store."

Read - they will sell cameras, but not through Nikon Store.

"The company's other business segments, including customer service and technical assistance, will continue to operate normally."

Read - they are staying in Brazil servicing their (gray market) products.

samfan, Nikon don't service gray market products when there is a Nikon Store in the country. Brazil will be different story. It would be irresponsible and foolish if they will decide other way. Nikon products are Nikon products regardless of the market. If they want to sell their cameras, they will have to service them. Simple as that.

Little bit too late...

I would like to see DIGITAL modular camera.

jl_smith: Nikon's going to lose a LOT of money...like, a Brazillion dollars.

No.

Nikon will still sell cameras through the gray market and will charge extra for servicing them.

BostonBoy: This morning I spend several hours on the V1.6x Trial SW. Like many others I’m looking at an Adobe replacement. Offering LR as CC only going forward has put me over the edge. After DxO, Capture One, and specialized solutions (such as Phocus) I’m looking for several things as a non-professional user: a) moderate rich functionality for ALL my RAW files, b) contained cost, and c) a solid go-forward path (not necessarily with a Digital Asset Mgmt Solution as I have a clearly structured WF and file system archive.

I just developed X-Trans and Bayer files from 3 modern cameras (D850, XT-2, X1D) with very pleasing result. Could this really be my new “grand unified solution”?!

I will keep testing. Judgement is still out, but it certainly piqued my interest.

@SirSeth - try Iridient Developer. Excellent results with Raw and JPEG's.

I have Afinity 1.3.5 and I am not enchanted with it... not even close to Photoshop. Maybe the updated version is better.

It is true that... "In recent years [...] due to the rise of smartphones, the compact digital camera market has been shrinking rapidly, leading to a significant decrease in operating rate at NIC and creating a difficult business environment."

Also it is other way of saying "We can not compete with Sony in the compact digital camera market".

"Sets new record for overall smartphone camera quality" ?

Disappointing photos with underwhelming result from the "the best DSLR on the market today".

Zoran K: Some more noise then D750, but better resolution.

In my experience, the difference in sharpness between D750 and D810 / D850 can be resolved with one click in Focus Magic.

I am a little bit disappointed at the level of noise from the sky and clouds (image 27) at only 160ASA. And that is JPEG with NR ON. I expect that the noise is even higher on a RAW file without NR.

Zoran K: What?

Stick with your D750 if:
You don't shoot in low light

Is this serious recommendation or maybe it is a typo?

Barney, your conclusion is based on assumptions. Compare for yourself:
