Potemkin_Photo: Rip Samsung. Canikon will soon join you in the abyss because they refused to do what you did.

I...wait....if "canikon" did what Samsung did...wouldn't they too be in the abyss right now?

I AM SO CONFUUUUUUUSED

But I think you are more confused than me.

Dear DPreview, will you please write an article titled "Intelligence Degraded: Why People Expect a $3000 Camera to Perform at the Same Level as a $6000 Camera".

Thanks, much appreciated.

Dante Birchen: Great. Who needs 12fps if you are only going to keep the first shot. of course many amateurs press the button way before the action happens and keep their finger down for the next thirty seconds. This guy has nothing bad to say about the D850. In advertising this is called Testimonial. let's wait for The angry photographers review and see if he will trade in his x-t2 for it. ;)

The angry "photographer"?

Why would I waste time with a camera review from someone who is obviously not a photographer?

Maybe instead, try renting one yourself, try using it in your chosen applications and decide for yourself if it's a tool you can use? Remember thinking for yourself? Have you ever tried it? If not, you should!

photogeek: This will be to DSLRs what F100 was to SLRs: the last and best of its kind.

No, it really won't, and no it really wasn't. The F6 was the last and best of its kind.

How will photographers distinguish their work if you encourage them all to add the same tool to their kit?

I guess the irony is lost on the author of this article.

Anyway, drone footage with a stock music soundtrack is already banal.

ChickenBalls: snob
n.
1. One who despises, ignores, or is patronizing to those he or she considers inferior.

2. One who is convinced of his or her superiority in matters of taste or intellect.

seems snobbery is a very common disease here

@daddy0

No, it really won't. And the fact that you believe it will proves that you are a gullible tool.

Sorry, but it's time to start punishing stupidity, and I have to start somewhere so it might as well be you.

I have this cool app that does black and white quite well. It's actually made by Nikon.

It's called "FM3a".

QuarryCat: it is good for long legs, but as not as good for small faces.
no good idea to go as close to a face - you could use your smartphone instead...
both are worse for head shots.

it is a perfect lens for the early and the evening hours, for dark scenses - but not for these kind of pictures!

It's not absurd at all. Getting in close to a face is great, but doing so with a wide angle can distort features if you aren't careful. Look at the portraits that StevenE linked to. Sure they are in close, but notice how they either directly face the person, or are at a right angle profile.

The lens is a tool, and if you are going for a certain look then by all means use it. You just have to be aware of its behavior in certain shooting situations, that's all.

Maybe next time they should put a 4x5, film, a minilab, and an Epson V750 flatbed scanner on the rover.

Seriously, if this Cameron fellow wants 3d movies, he can build his own rover and send it to Mars. What is stopping him?

Yes, because if you can't see it, then it must not exist at all!

Or, you know, you could just shoot some film.
