  • Don't understand why folk should dump their ILC N1 kits because a fixed lens camera has been cancelled - for someone who likes the 1" sensor, and with a migration possibility to Nikon fixed lens ...
  • As it must have been embarrassing to cancel the DLs, I think if Nikon had wanted to ditch Nikon 1 as well near term they would have come up with some flannel about "moving out of the 1" sensor ...
  • Most of us would agree that Nikon 1 pricing was off (at least until the J5), and that's something that Nikon mitigated with the intended DL offerings and could easily transfer that hard lesson to ...
  • Apart from this forum I've only followed Nikon DX Pro, Nikon FX and Nikon SLR Lens forums. In all of these forums, posts continually saying Nikon's offerings are in terminal decline, Canon's are ...
  • Perhaps "gloating" was an ill-chosen word; anyway, although Nikon have made some mess-ups recently, I'm personally not ready yet to write the whole of this 100 year old company off! After all, the ...
  • Even though Nikon may have had to take a hit due to technical issues (or whatever), if they have noted the popularity of more reasonable prices (and larger aperture zooms), some good will have ...
  • For sure, Sony's fans are gloating (see earlier in this thread) - although I do wonder about the motives for choosing to do it here in this Nikon forum! It may not be bad news for Nikon 1 (the ...
  • Replied in This is dumb.
    Think you may have missed that I was not "dissing" Richard Murdey (or cheering his departure), but commenting on his " (soon to be) discontinued N1" remark (and his inappropriate - and now ...
  • Unless you've been living in a cave for the last year, you won't need to guess why contributors of attacking posts/tweets are emboldened (and so more prevalent) on social media (including DPR ...
  • Replied in This is dumb.
    <snip> True that's not a final bow or a fade out (either would be more gracious) - it's called a parting shot expressed explicitly for the purpose of re-stirring up some controversy to leave behind ...
  • Agree - although I've sometimes cropped the output format of shots from the 6.7-13 for aesthetic reasons, I haven't felt forced to (as with some F-mount WA shots) due to excessive corner blur!
  • I suppose “rathole full of snakes”, “snobs” and “so narcissistic” at least shows more variety of insult to forum members than your very own (throwing in an insult to the forum moderator for good ...
  • I got both of these attachments in a used bundle; I attached the (excellent) V3 EVF and have never removed it, whereas I tried the V3 grip but then removed it when I needed to charge the battery ...
  • Far be it for me to dispute the AF judgements of the likes of Thomas Stirr - but if you can acquire a V3 at a decent price, you'd find it does have some plusses vs the V2 (I have both). For ...
  • The beauty of an interchangeable lens camera is that you can put on a zoom for landscape, or one of a range of fast primes for indoor low light; it's going to get old real fast to have to keep ...
  • Actually you don't need a zoom lens for indoor use unless that's the only type of lens you understand, and you are rather static regarding moving your feet - you can choose between the already ...
  • Although you hid it cunningly, we’ve already got 4 locked threads of DL speculation! Having the 6.7-13 (but for obvious reasons no DL18-50 to compare it with), I’d say just use f/5.6 - usually ...
  • Replied in Seriously
    Have to say I'm surprised to see 'newbee-bullying' being embraced.
  • I'd call it a flounce - because for one, it's an ineffective parting shot against the very clearly stated subject of the forum, and for two, I've seen him flounce out of other forums before!
  • Seems like from your follow-ups to your OP that you are 'fishing' for someone to tell you that the size of the (bargain price) PD Zoom won't make much difference to the portability, thus giving ...
