Nuno Souto: When will the "dslr-only" folks wake up and understand the days of lugging around 15 pounds of equipment to take one photo or make a little video are over and done?

And no, you are NOT a "pro" because you use the same gear as some internet blogger!

Grow up, go outside and smell the flowers, it's really worth it.
Mirrorless is here to stay and is the future.

What really does matter is balance, not the weight.

FWIW, my DSLR kits weigh 10-12 lbs and each fits in one bag. My mirrorless kit takes up 2 5x5 Expedit units.

Suave: You know, when I decided to use my stash of old Nikkors more actively I simply got me a Nikon body. It took me a few weeks to find a great deal, but in the end I picked up a like new D7000 for under $200.

D5300 is an entirely different animal - lack of Ai tab and screw drive make it better suited for non-Ai Nikkors or G lenses.

mrb375: Have a shootout with Olympus 50mm 1.4, Takumar 1.4 and Carl Zeiss Jena 35mm 2.4 and lets see what you get.

Which of the four Olympuses and which of the four Takumars?

Kaso: Bill Cunningham used 24/2.8D on D5000 -- manually focusing.

Huge DOF of a 24mm lens paired with decent AF-assist make focusing such a lens much easier than you think.

PanchoVilla: This lens is junk. The Nikon 50mm 1.8 G is superior in every way.

I heard that G lens kills it when paired wuth F2.

The Name is Bond: The bokeh isn't nice at all, except in those situations that mask the nastiness, as above. It's one of many compelling reasons to spend the extra and get the G lenses, as they perform the modern miracle of sharpness wide-open with neutral or better bokeh, which used to be impossible.

I observe that old-style heptagonal bokeh on regular basis in professional video. For example, "The Killing" had quite a bit of it.

Sure. My D7000 is used only with manual focus lenses. Ai-d Nikkor-O 35/2 is my absolute favorite.

Suave: The best part about these Olympics is that it does not interfere with any regular season and I don't have to worry about any local teams' stars being overused or hurt.

Yes! I also care a great deal about reading comprehension of all the people in this world.

Suave: I skipped disk-based cameras, it was an obvious dead end, and bought an F707, and later replaced it with F717. I absolutely adored those cameras. If Sony had kept that line going I would probably own one to this day.

X-ray vision was just a bunch of BS spread around by iWitlessNews. What did freak people out is crosshatch red laser pattern it used for low light focusing.

In reply to:

doady: This article is disturbing but hilarious at the same time. It reads like something from The Onion, like a satire of corporate overreach or something. Not only taking and selling thousands of public domain images without the photographer's permission and without giving either credit or compensation to her, but also threatening her and trying make her pay for posting her own public domain images on her own website. Very weird but unfortunately this the new normal. Public domain has increasingly become the corporate domain. This is something the people of the USA should keep in mind if they are thinking of voting for that corporate puppet Hillary Clinton in the upcoming presidential election.

If you think that Mr. Trump will be less in favor of the next copyright extension you are very naive.

This list does not appear to be DxO-compliant.

A little taste of their own medicine.

DVT80111: Is this a Nikon's response to Sony?

That's because once you do you can't afford to jump back.

I am not in a market for a lens like that, I mean a portrait lens this expensive, but I applaud Nikon for making one.

Triplet Perar: Wake me up when some company delivers a set of lenses all at f/4: 24/4, 35/4, 50/4, 75/4, 105/4, all bijou and petite, optically brilliant, distortion free, excellent 3D rendering, and razor sharp. That will be the day when digital photography may celebrate real accomplishment and we clap that someone started using brains and delivered fully on digital promise.

Sweet dreams, Snow White.

Suave: Can you get a decent case for it?

I don't get what are you trying to say, and I doubt you do either.
