Chris Dodkin: Despite all of the protests from the Nikon faithful - history will show that this was one of the last gasps for cameras with 'flappy mirror things' inside.

The game is almost up - the writing is on the wall.

One last hurrah for the FF DSLR and it's outdated technology. The Spruce Goose of DSLRs.

The path to the future is clear - not everyone wants to admit it yet - but the smart money in the room has already sold their DSLR lens collections, before their value crashes. You know who you are Lloyd Chambers!

By all means rage against the inevitable future - I'll pop back in a few years and link you to this post as a reminder that you were told it was coming.

For now - enjoy your new Nikon, and that legacy flappy mirror thingy...

Interesting to see what happens. Time will tell. Regardless that is one hell of a specked camera. Great job Nikon.

@Chris, I just did a little reading on the Fuji Nikon rumor. I saw nothing concrete on the subject. Can you send me a link too the article? Also it looks as if the camera division is doing ok? It's another group of the company that is in trouble! It's putting a strain on the company as a whole.

The 850 is a very imressive camera on paper. I hope it gives them some room to breathe. I personally think it will!

I 100% agree. IMHO what is going on here is a very good business decision on Nikon's part. This and there next DSLR will give them outstanding sale's and time to develop their next line of cameras. I will be very curious to see where this goes in 8 years. It may be the first step to a new Nikon?

coreyweb: Canon just keeps getting further and further behind. Can't help but think they're sitting on something though........they really need to get moving though if they're gonna do something.

I have heard that statement for years. I wouldn't hold my breath. Personally I have lost all confidence in Canon.

Morons that look into their Crystal ball and predict the market. Haha

As far as the Nokia phone. It's a joke, anyone thinking it's going to help Nokia is sadly mistaken.

Yeppers dead in the water. I picked up a few hundred shares at 6. I agree on 2019. That is why I bought the shares strickly for grins.
Traders will start investing in it when and if they have some positive news.
They are a woofer. Lol

I may be wrong. But I thought most of money was from rich Microsoft people ? I own a few shares of Nokia. It's dead in the water. I followed them briefly. They are a long shot, sticky for the high speed 5k in the years to come.

garyknrd: I am traveling solo in Colombia. I have a Nikon with me and I have never taken it out of the bag. Next to go are my big and crazy bulky supertel photo lenses. For me Canon and Nikon are dead.

No drama at all. I am enjoying myself.
Back to the topic. These smartphones as handy as they are. Will never replace a cheap ILC IMO.
I do think mirror less will replace DSLR,s?

You are right. Anyone reading this don't come here. It's a death trap.

But if you are traveling to any country you do not know. Be careful. You can get killed or hurt.

I am in the better part of the city. I walked around in Catago last night until about 10 P.PM. Bogota and Cali are pretty rough in the bad parts of town . No problems in better areas. My home is in San Antonio Texas. In the hood it's just as dangerous.
Cabs are are cheap. I use an app to call to be safe.

Honestly after I ditched Bogota and Cali. It's very nice. The reserves are extremely safe.

My advice is to get out of the city and enjoy Colombia. The rebels are not the problem they use to be.

I am moving to 4/3 for the next few years. Colombia has got to be the nicest country I have visited in a long time. Hands down better than Asia. I am planning on buying a vehicle here and start birding January next year. The comment about dangerous! About the same or safer than the USA. And absolutely gorgeous.

garyknrd: I am in Cali, Colombia. Just checking it out. No one here has a computer. Everything is done on a phone.. I would like to have one over here. There is a huge market for these IMO.

I am trying this on a xiaomi mi 5. For the price this is a hidden gym.
