Marty4650: You really have to wonder why an $8,000 camera requires bug fixes so soon after introduction. Was this camera hastily rushed to market, and not thoroughly tested prior to introduction?

I can understand getting new features via firmware, but any new camera that costs this much should be bug free.

Even the $200M F-22 fighter has bugs.

pca7070: My Nikon D750 + Nikkor 35mm F1.8 produces much sharper images. But it's much bulkier I know.

I have m43 and 35mm systems (and also Sigma X3 cameras). Looking at 100% view of the samples seems not much better than my Sony RX100III.

Please try it out and tell us the result, as I have a Ducati too.

Kostasm: Raw image quality is superb, another dimension to smartphone camera quality. Bravo Apple!

Compare it with ancient Nokia 808...

Rubbish comparing to Nokia 808.

Konstantin Mineev: DxOMark's Scores:
Iphone7 = 86
Iphone6s plus = 84
Iphone6, 6s = 82
Iphone5s = 76
Iphone4s, 5 = 72
Iphone4 = 50

Only two points better than its predecessor, and slightly worse than competitors, but tone of words like "awesome, great, best"

iPhone 7S will score 88, believe me.

OK, more electronic garbage is coming into the landfill.

mmrezaie: "It's worth noting though that mirror and shutter-induced shock can introduce some softness at longer focal lengths and slower shutter speeds when pairing the D750 with Nikon's 'VR' lenses."

What does this mean? Is there a review or study of this phenomenon somewhere?

Using "quiet mode" somewhat improves the blurred image problem.

The studio shots are shaking like hell.... not a fair comparison.

M43 lenses all have huge distortion, I bet this is no exception.

jonby: It seems odd that, with an obvious gap in the market for a mirrorless/rangefinder-style MF camera, and with Leica's extensive experience in this field, their MF cameras should be SLRs. The CMOS sensor surely has now opened the door technically for the development of mirrorless/rangefinder MF and I would have thought that Leica would be well placed to be first ones there. If they made one, I doubt they would need to be dropping their prices to compete like this.

I like my Mamiya 7 and would like to have a digital range finder like it.

jonikon: Yes, there are some excellent Zeiss lenses still being made, but unfortunately Zeiss dirtied it's brand years ago when they signed a contract with Sony allowing them to brand any lens Sony chose as a Zeiss Tessar lens. The Zeiss quality assurance of Sony/Zeiss lenses is a joke and is all just marketing. Some Sony /Zeiss branded lenses such as the Carl-Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm f/4 ZA OSS are junk on the inside. Photozone only gives it one an one half stars out of a possible five, optically. Unfortunately many Sony users are being duped into paying premium prices for the the blue label Zeiss on the outside, but only getting questionable Sony optical and mechanical quality on the inside.

FE 24-70 F4 is another example. Optical quality is terrible.

I'd rather shoot B&W film.

I found that optical or sensor stabilisation works best at very low shutter speed.
