On article Hands-on with the Nikon Nikkor Z 70-200mm F2.8 S (631 comments in total)

Why didn't they develop external zoom like Canon RF version?
They have tried their best to design smaller cameras and then now make bigger lenses.

In reply to:

Golan Ziv: i love my Z7, the best camera i ever had, but want another smaller camera for every day. i think ill go for the Z50

Me too. I'm having Z6 and all 4 native Z lenses so I want to add Z50 into my set. Z50 kit plus Z 35mm 1.8S in my bag would be great for travel. Nikon needs to make a small 23mm f2 APS-C (like Fuji does) if they want to sell this camera well.

I would rather have no LCD on the back and pay less $ than having this stupid design. Fuji, why didn't you let users hide/unhide the LCD by themselves (through a Fn button), without having to flip it down?
Usually when I see a new generation of a camera introduced, there were a lot of old ones listed for sale. It's not in this case. Not many people selling their used XPro-2. That tells you something!

Am I the only one who likes CMOS, "old" generation sensors (like in this X-A7) better than new X-trans ones found in XT3, XT30?..

In reply to:

mrfabio: For me a camera without in-body stabilisation in 2019 doesn't deserve a Gold review so disagree with this review independently by all the other strengths.. I was hoping to have it in this new release and ready to switch from Olympus E-m5 ii to Fuji...pity.

If IS is very important to you, don't buy any Fujifilm cameras (H1 is an exception). I also have Nikon Z system otherwise I would not preorder this XT30.

In reply to:

CanonSharpShooter: DPR really needs to focus on the core parts of photography like color science! Canon would be for sure on top of that list!

Only guys who don't shoot RAWs (and probably don't know how to cook their own favorite meals) complain/care about color (or color science, what ever) of a certain camera.

Vladyslav Kosulin: Those buying Leica hardly care about price.

And they don't know for the same price they paid, they could buy a much better camera (better AF, better RAW files, better dynamic range...).

PanchoVilla: Love the X-E2 and the X-E2S! Better than any of those puny sensor M43 cameras. I don't even know why anyone bothers to shoot with that small sensor anyways! Fuji X-Trans is even better than FF!

X-Trans is better than FF? I don't think so.. That's X-trans on XE2S is out-dated.

This hole shows the tendency of Leica quality in current and next couple years!

topstuff: Got to love the hypocrite haters on DPR.

If the people knocking Leica all wear Lorus or Casio copy watches, drive Hyundai's, only wear Walmart clothes, only eat non-branded food and genuinely have no desire for "aspirational brands" then they would have a point.

But I bet the average, 50 plus, white north American male on DPR is not like that. I bet the average guy here likes a premium brand car, likes a well cut suit, and well made clothes, enjoys a branded TV and home appliances. If these same people do not apply the same code to photo gear, that is their prerogative. But to knock Leica and the people who do value Leica gear, is hypocritical IMO.

I'm wondering why people like hand-made cameras while with modern technology, robots can do almost all things. When I handle a camera, I don;t care it was made by hands or by machines if it makes good pictures at a reasonable price. I agree that Leica was a legend, but nowadays Fuji can replace them, as for digital photography.

In reply to:

spidercrown: While I agree that this is a piece of beautiful camera. But after watching the promo and preview video, there are still improvement required in their process and design for this camera.
First, with today's automation technology, hand polishing is just no longer required. The robot can make at least if not better polishing than human. Ask Apple.
Second, with such expensive camera, I would expect the touch screen to be at least as smooth as the IOS devices. Again ask Apple how to do it. Such laggy response will sure frustrate me.

I agree with you. They made us pay for a high price tag unnecessary !

Because they hold Fujifilm cameras and lenses which make the same IQ for much less costs. APS-C with a slow zoom? There are so many choices there. Fujifilm colors are not inferior to those of Leica, at least.

Rick_Hunter: So far we've had:
18-55
18-55 with vr
18-55 collapsible edition
18-70
16-85
18-105
18-135
18-140
18-200 first edition
18-200 second edition
18-300 first edition

And now nikon gives us the new 18-300! Wow! Lighter! Slower! How can we have lived until today without yet another slow 18-whatever zoom?

Keep releasing slow 18-xxx zooms is the reason DX users complain Nikon does not care them.

In reply to:

KakoW: Sigma 35 f/1.4 was $699 in december. I hope that Nikon is good, because for $100 more you get one of the sharpest FF lens out there.

How do you know "for $100 more you get one of the sharpest FF lens out there" if you haven't tried the new Nikon 35mm 1.8 yet????
How's about this: for $100 less, you get lighter weight, smaller size and less headache because of bad quality control ???

If this has face detection, I think I will get it as a second, compact camera.

In reply to:

revio: DPR says: "The D3300 continues to be one of the smallest and lightest digital SLRs on the market"

How can a NEW camera "continue to be one of the smallest..."???

Since it´s not been existing until now, it can´t of course...

The D3300 seems, anyway, to be a nice and capable camera, and notably smaller than its predecessor was.

Also, are they sure that D3300 is smaller than Canon SL1 ???

Link | Posted on Jan 8, 2014 at 01:09 UTC

I expect it will be as good as 28mm 1.8G and 85mm 1.8G.
Lovely trinity 1.8G ( 35, 50, 85) for less cost of a 35mm 1.4G!!

I bet this is a Chinese company, Am I right? They do nothing, just want to steal patterns from others.
