Can we get to article 77?

I think Ilford FP4 or Fomapan 200 will do fine and are competitively priced.

Nice to think about some of the golden oldies: Verichrome Pan, Plus-X, Agfapan, Efke, ORWO.

Jefftan: unless one really like Canon or the EOS M lens system

the 3.5 years old A6000 (or better comparison is A5100 as both no EVF) is still a much better camera in almost all aspect

This is a fact and no argument needed

Whether APS-C E-mount (yes I know 3 years no new lens and is frustrated like everyone eles) lens system is really worse than EOS M can be debated
Maybe Canon 15-45mm kit is better than E 16-50mm too (just maybe, 16-50mm is ok if one get a good copy)

Sony is #1 in mirrorless company for a reason

My guess is that this new sensor makes a big difference as opposed to the "legacy" 18 MP sensor, which in my experience had poor dynamic range.

See many a vlogger on YouTube using those Sony cameras.

Gesture: Do any other EOS-M cameras have this sensor. Thanks.

Thanks. Canon should have acquired Samsung APS-C division. This is what Samsung did, put the latest sensor even in the low-end camera, plus low-end camera had same/excellent interface and lots of good compact primes.

I see the EOS-M100 has the same switch as the Powershot compact cameras.

aftab: Canon should release few more pancake lenses in addition 22mm/2.
Canon came late in mirrorless game, but they are now #2 in Japanese market behind Olympus, Sony is now #3. Who would have thought Canon would overtake Sony in their home turf?

Samsung did and didn't succeed. Wonderful lens lineup to fit the platform.

Very nice. For $450. I thought that OVF and Mirror Box cost so much to produce.

I can even understand this. Beautiful camera. But include 2 batteries at least.

Is that really the limit of the focus system. It doesn't go any further out from the center of the image sensor?

Kaso: There are too many filler "articles" these days. Speculative fillers are never fulfilling!

Every article allows for many purchasing links. Gear in this Story. About 10 for this one. That is the strategy. There must be science behind this obsession.

About 11 so far.

Dibyendu Majumdar: As a long time Nikon user and observer I feel Nikon's current problems are more due to the collapse of its market share in the stepper business. The digital camera market is shrinking anyway. And Nikon's decided to give up the race for market share in this sector and instead focus on profitability - hence the cancellation of DL series, and hence a high value product such as D850.

Yes. Stay with high value products backed by outstanding warranty service and professional support. That DX and FX lens lineup is really Nikon's ace in the hole. Rekindle that reputation for QUALITY. And get rid of all the low-value, not that great selling, service-intensive compact consumer camera business. If Nikon had done that, the DL could have been something special and perhaps competed well against the Sony RX100 line.

James Bligh: I don't understand what the article is for. To defend Nikon? Why? Does he have to or wish to?

I wonder whether the purpose of this article is educational or promotional. In either case the jury will not be persuaded not to mention convinced I dare to say.

I really doubt the article does deserve a space in dpreview editorial board.

But throwback Thursday on D700 was more about D850. The numbers may not be the same, Nikon is like Toyota or Honda-solid, reliable, traditional quality=VALUE.

Gesture: $30 accessory for $150. OK.

No. What I am looking at in that photo, even $50 is way more than enough. In fact, for what that camera costs, Nikon should just include it as a bonus and appreciation. The goodwill would vastly exceed any profit on that plastic and may even help sell the macro lenses.

dash2k8: This is a spectacular camera to be sure, but I honestly can't tell the difference between these images and those from other FF cameras without meticulous pixel-peeping. I guess once you get past a certain point, all great cameras will turn out great technical images and the rest is personal taste. Having said all that, I still plan on getting this body, my comment was merely pertaining to the sample images. Could have swapped in 5D4/D750/1DX2/a9 samples and I wouldn't be able to tell.

Hard to quantify or maybe even describe. But what it comes down to is that certain OEMs understand between better how to process the raw sensor data into the files we work with. I don't work with many DLRs (APS-C sensors), but across many compact cameras and micro 4/3rds, I have always found that Olympus "gets it." The plasticity of the images is simply better for me.
