I will never buy another Apple product because of this. And I really like my MacBook pro. As soon as this one dies it is back to Windows.

Interesting times for sure.
With phones taking over the main photo market.
Enthusiasts are fueling the market.
IMHO, they are not stupid enough to buy into the rediculious advertising hype and the lac luster upgrades. I think most photo enthusiasts are smart enough to know what they want and are just holding off on buying. Waiting until the company deliver!

Good or bad, We will see. But, Broadcom is the Borg of the chip world. Qualcomm will be assemilated..

garyknrd: Just a Nokia name on the phone. A very small percentage of the profits I would guess. Nokia is betting on 5k hardware and beyond I think. They are sinking allot of money into it. Hopefully it will pay off for them.

Though I post some facts.
Nokia stock is dropping like a rock. Revenue is down, And the forecast is dismal.
Anyone holding this junk stock should sell now and lick there wounds.

garyknrd: As soon as 4/3 makes a good 400 F/4 i am in. Hopefully in the next year or two we will see a serious wildlife lens hit.

thx1138, 400mm F/5.6 no IS. and with a 1.4 T.C = F/8... = a big no for me.
100-400mm F/5.6, excellent zoom. Good IS, 560mm F/8 = no thanks.
I will wait.
IMO, micro 4/3 will mature enough in the next few years to take me into the next phase of my photography. Fingers crossed.

Also, I would like to know what you consider a "real camera"?

I have yet to see a bag designed for travel photographers. Not one. Does anyone know of a company that makes a good backpack that doesn't have such an obvious look. I make my own bags now. But it is a pain.

I googled it. Lovely photos, but DPR's definition of adventure travel is about 180 degrees of my definition.

@ sports shooter.
For birding you need AF. And light weight. I personally could care less about the sensor. DR, Higher ISO would be nice. But not a deal breaker.
7D, 7D II, Tough camera's to shoot with, after trying Nikon.
1DXII, Good AF. Crummy birding camera. Too heavy, and not enough pixels.
I'll wait until the 7DIII hits. If decent AF. It will be a winner for me.

Who said I hated Canon? I will sell my old 7d for $2000. I only shoot bird's, and Canon does not have a decent birding camera. Right now it's a bit of a joke IMO.

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.
