I had the A750. Loved that camera.

Can you not tell from all the smiley faces after the comment(s)?

Negative287: This right here tells me that Nikon is going with an APS body for their mirrorless offerings... Looks like they're going to deliver APS lenses that eliminate the BS DOF arguments that we always hear.

The title of the article literally says "Full Frame mirrorless".

In reply to:

justmeMN: I think Nikon should release an APS-C mirrorless camera first. That sensor size is where the huge sales volume is.

I hope not.
I have zero interest in aps-c in 2017. And as VSCD said, Fuji pretty much owns that market.

Kazzaz: If the new Mirroless from Nikon can use the FX mount lenses it would be a very good move from Nikon.

I'm sure there will be adapter(s), either from Nikon themselves or a 3rd party(like metabones).

Damn good looking camera, and great price.
For those who like a lot of MP's, this should be a big hit.

Good job Nikon 👍

PhotoKaz: So many comments about Sony coming out with better bodies. Who cares. Pros (or enthusiasts) don't switch brands because another company came out a better model. Sony has crap service and support, plus gaping holes in their lens lineup. They can release an a7R3 with a 100mp sensor and I wouldn't switch, and I know plenty of pros who would not switch either.

"At least you have a full lens lineup with Nikon".
That's true, for now. But in many cases, Sony lenses downright smoke Nikon. 50mm & 85mm would be just 2 examples(albeit huge ones).
There's also the stabilization factor.
And the fact you can adapt any canon/Nikon/etc lens....
Add to that, you don't have to fine tune/adjust the lenses on Sony bodies...

And all of a sudden your argument doesn't hold much water my friend.

When Sony brings out their next round of cameras (A7III, A7rIII, etc), I think you'll be surprised at how many people switch....

panchorancho: 4 hipsters shoot the same boring hipster model with thick framed glasses my old man in the 80s used to wear, while filming in that saturated/desaturated look every hipster on Instagram uses. They even bust out the over used LED lights. I'm surprised they also didn't bust out the prism for some rainbow effects and an image projector with a generic artsy fartsy image overlayed on the model. After that, I'm sure they went to a run down part of town to open an overpriced cafe and thrift shop!

You should contact Jessica, let her know how bad they are and challenge those 'hipsters'.
Show us all how it's really done...

On article Canon EOS 6D Mark II Review (1129 comments in total)

@DPReview Any chance of a Canon interview regarding this camera? Or maybe ask for an official response at least?

Given the overwhelming disappointment with this once highly anticipated camera, it's only fair that Canon get a chance to explain & defend the decisions that went into it(or at least try to).
And I think we'd all like to hear what they have to say & their reasoning.

dansclic: F16 with a 2 500 usd lens and such "soft" 4K images, did I miss something ?

You did. It has to shoot through a specially made enclosure.

Joed700: Wow, Sony has come a long way. Back then the Nikon F3 was the choice for NASA to deploy into space and now it's Sony. Great job!

@mmcfine his post stands. They still chose a Sony camera over a Nikon camera.

KoolKool: i found the video seriously lack of sharpness, from center to corner

i have seen plenty of videos like that but much more sharper

lol........

You must of missed the part where the camera is housed in a special tempature controlled radiated enclosure. Which the lens has to shoot through.
Odds are it isn't made of aspherical glass...

KyleSlamchez: What is the point of this "article?"

Using the official news feed to take a cheap shot at a competing website is not only bad form, it also provides no meaningful content to readers.

@walker2000 Only people who didn't actually read the whole article(or any of it), or who don't know what the word 'Satire' means. Or who just want a reason to b**ch & complain.

'Satire' is literally the first word of the title.

...DPR comment section never ceases to amaze

cdembrey: "Unless you have a photographic memory (excuse the pun) ..."

Eidetic memory (/aɪˈdɛtɪk/; sometimes called photographic memory), is a real thing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eidetic_memor

Only on FStoppers wound the writer consider it a pun. Double Meh!!

Lols. You do realize the word 'pun' doesn't have anything to do with whether or not something is real, right?
I don't think you do 😄. He used it perfectly, in perfect context.

The 'fail' & 'meh' award of the day goes to you my friend...

Link | Posted on Jul 24, 2017 at 16:48 UTC

So from reading... this will either be a fixed lens camera, or if it has a curved sensor then exsisting F mount lenses won't work due to sensor curvature.
Does that seem about accurate?

AustinMN: Underwater...controlled by phone...

Seems there's a disconnect here.

AustinMN- my thoughts exactly!
When I'm diving, the last thing I want to do is pull out my phone to turn my light on. Talk about making things more complicated than they should be.

Here's a novel idea: how about an on/off button on the side of it?

Nikoncanonfan: Even a broken Leica has more style, purpose, desirability and magic to it than a working Sony.. ..

"No I'm serious. Once you own a M series you lose all regards for your other equipment. It's like comparing dog excrement with cream"

Funny, having shot with both, I'd take a Sony. The M is nicer, with better design & asthetics, but we're talking electronic tools here, not jewelry.
And one of those tools is severely limiting. I'll give ya a hint:
It's the one where 50% of your photos are slightly out of focus, the one that's a nightmare to use with lenses longer than 50mm, all but impossible to shoot moving subjects with, and the one you have to send in every year and pay to have it's rangefinder recalibrated.

But we're not talking about M cameras here, this thread is about the TL2. And it's about as beautiful & magical as a Casio alarm clock.
