Tell me in which trash can you have dumped your d850. But then... did you ever hold it in your hands?

Nikon subsidizes US customers and overcharge all the others. One more reason for me not to switch from my old Nikon DSLR.

Many of the essential elements are missing from the survey. IBIS - for me an essential element. Then sensor which is easy to clean and resilient to dust. I've chosen "sports-ready af system" as one of the answers. Frankly I don't care about "sport readiness". What I need is close to 100-percent accurate, reliable and fast AF system.

tom1234567: way way OVERPRICED Sony item same as Nikon d850,

these phones are priced out the average users reach,

would they not sell more if the prices were lower??????????

So is Maserati: way overpriced. I am quite certain that eye-ties would sell more of their posh cars if the prices were lower.

ashokvashisht: I am an amateur in the field of Landscape photography. As I struggle to improve my shots with my D5200/Nikkor 18-140mm combo and plan my future lens purchase for Landscape photo I am still not clear why a landscape photographer needs a fast lens at all. Wouldn't we be shooting somewhere in the region of f8 - f12 (about) in Landscape photography because we would be needing a large depth of field ? In this context I had chosen the Nikkor 18-35 f 3.5-4.5 FX as my landscape lens. Advice will be welcome and I plan to add a D750 (used) body in future hence my FX lens purchase.

It's not exactly related to Nikkor e28mm. Yet: consider nikkor 20 1.8. It is a superb lens which would give you similar angle of view as nikkor 28mm on full frame. Or Sigma 18-35mm 1.8. Even if you use only f8-12 range, these lenses are opticaly better than standard DX zooms.

400mm looks promising.

On article DPReview Asks: What was your first camera? (764 comments in total)

Russian Smena in 1970, followed by father's old Praktica IV next year. Since 1990 I've been using Nikons starting with the fabulous F4. I switched to digital with D200 in early 2006.

They forget to mention the winner for the Professional Camera with the highest ISO category. And Prosumer DSLR with the most innovative tilting screen category.

Someone forgot to told Nikon that sensors smaller than CX are dead...

Great photos. I wonder if we're going to see more monkey photographers in the near future. The Mr. Slater's case may set an important precedent.

On article Nikon Df combines classic design with modern technology (314 comments in total)

Beautiful design - but otherwise not a single technical improvement. Nevertheless, I'd buy the camera immediately - if it would cost around 1500 euros. 3000 - no way!

Sigma 35 seems to be a great lens. Yet I'll wait for Nikkor 35 2.0 (or 1.8) VR...
