On article Nikon D850 vs Sony a7R III: Which is best? (1093 comments in total)

Very obviously, NIKON camera specs are not decided by best value-for-money proposal based on NIKON technical competence. They seem to be more decided my marketing professionals, maximising NIKON revenues, rather than Customer benefits.
SONY does not have that heavy a market bear to hug, and so is being more realistic in exploring technology available, but clearly lags on the portfolio diversity.
Wish NIKON & SONY agree to commonise/standardise some aspects:
1) Lens Mounts
2) Batteries
3) Flashes/Lighting Systems
This may suddenly open up a new era of popularising photography

Sony has a HUGE menu, a bit too comprehensive for comfort. Not met any photog who NEEDS this much multi-customisation.
NIKON still feels very user-friendly, easy to customise, and manage.
But the VIDEO functionality of SONY beats the hell out of NIKON.
Clearly, for those who shoot more video, SONY stands out, while those who are out for stills, NIKON is not beaten.
As yet.....

The download neverworked, despite dozens of efforts. Maybe sheer overload on the site........

Thanks for crisp and clear information. And for maintaining a tinge of well-intended humor.

On article Why make a small-sensor mirrorless camera? (271 comments in total)

I fear time is approaching when we would see the slow demise of the Dino that Nikon is becoming. Over priced Camera systems & Lenses, being sold more on hype and brand value than actual performance and Value-for-Money justification. No real innovation has come out of Nikon portfolio over the last decade, and most of the new product introductions have been me-too offerings at a higher price points.
This new format will not offer the potential for performance and IQ on par with the products from Sony/Samsung/Panasonic/Olympus, primarily because of the smaller sensor size chosen by Nikon. We all know that Nikon does not manufacture its own sensors, and depends on other fabs for the developments in sensor technology. I fail to see what ground-breaking innovations can Nikon offer with a smaller sensor to wean away enthusiasts from Sony et al;
More pros now use Canon than Nikon, and soon serious enthusiasts may start getting attracted away from Nikon.
