NikonD2X: No surprise! In Gemany you say: "He that will not hear must feel". The world is NOT waiting for a D3400 and a D5600! Germany is not waiting for a (in the beginning) 2300 Euro D500... I am waiting for a Nikon EOS M5-counterpart! Not those insane 1" Nikon toys! Yes Nikon, celebrate your 100. birthday in 2017 and close 2018... If you proceed offering unwanted and overpriced equipment. My last brandnew Nikon (D800) is from 2012...

@PPierre: 42 MP is not a big increase but 46 or 50 is the same liga like Sony or Canon, but I think, Sony doesn't agree with selling the 46 MP sensor to Nikon because of the competition....

I'm also waiting for a new D810plus or lets say D900 Body...forget the D3000 so and so...why create a 1.4/105 or the 19 mm TS or the 2.8/70-200 Mark II without having a 42 or 46 MP camera????

For me it looks 1:1 like a Leica plagiate-how shabby!

At last the backpack all gear fits in: with the MP-1 there is enough space to store a 5DSR with batterypack plus L-Plate, an additional 1DSXII also with L-Plate, the very big and heavy EF 11-24, all the EF shift lenses, 24-70, 70-200, and a Sigma 120-300!

I think this is a fake: who would pay for this bs 6,5 M$, there are much more better pics from the Anteloupe... PL is a weasel....

On article 1939: England in Color (part 2) (177 comments in total)

Very nice article, for me, it is very interesting to see before and after cityscape images. And i'm sorry for Edgar the cat: I hope this battlefield between England an Germany is closed forever!

It is a really good job showing "Old-England" before the war: I was there 10 years before and it looks like it is yesterday-great Job and work, I'm happy to watch part II....Peter from Germany!!!

On article Battle of the titans: Top ball heads tested (287 comments in total)

My Benro B3 was destroyed after a fall with the tripod during a photoshooting in The valley of Fire/USA and so I had to decide which Ball-head should be bought, Benro again, Really Right Stuff or the Novoflex CB 5.
My choose was the Novoflex CB 5 and I didn't regret a second: there are 2 different "knobs" for moving the ball and changing the friction for the ball. Both you can find with closed eyes or with the eyes on the rangefinder. If you fix the ball there will be no moving even with a 2.8/300 mm. For me it is the best bullhead price-vallue!

What a mental deficiency!

During the analog era of Hasselblad I used (and still using) the other "flagships" 205 TCC and 205 FCC with nearly all FE lenses. These cameras had been built with pure sturdy metal and with very fine lenses from Zeiss/Oberkochen.
Today the company build cameras with plastic and no more Zeiss lenses, but the same incredible high price like of that analog time. Therefore i'm full of disappointment of the brand Hasselblad and their policy of merchandising: because I live nearly the Zeiss factory, Zeiss is not allowed to produce and sell the older FE-lenses, which wouldn't damaged the Hasselblad.
I believe the next 10 years you will see disappearing the Hasselblad Digital cameras: they are not better than a Pentax 450 D , the sensors from Phase One are more ready for use with different camera models and so on.
Hasselblad had oversleeped a lot!
