Roland Karlsson: Hmmm .. a DPReview mug maybe?

It would be pretty cool to have a DPR mug, hat, camera strap, etc.

dmartin92: That’s fine with me. No problem. If Nikon were going out of business, this would be awful news, but it is far, far from being that. Great, they will focus on serious cameras. For a few of their better compacts, they will continue to sell them. Fine.

Not fine and not so great.
Sales of less expensive cameras help fuel R&D for their "serious" cameras.

Sounds exciting.
I wonder how it would work with air show photography.

Their s.w. is for Macs only?

Very expensive. On the 13" model, going from 512GB to 1TB will cost another $500 (all other specs being the same).

On the 15" model, the same increase in storage will cost $400.

No thanks, I'll pass.

Attractive images.
I shoot Canon, but I'd sure like to try this lens with the A9 for aviation photography.
Waiting till it's available for rent.

In reply to:

reid thaler: I'm more than happy with my D810. My only regret is that I don't shoot with it 8 hours a day, it's such a refined camera.

Is anyone else lamenting that there is no pop up flash? I use it all the time for outdoors to fill in shadows. Oops, I'm not supposed to do that since its a "professional" camera, and I'm supposed to drag around an external flash.

Well said.

Sounds great, but the nerd in me wants to know if the note-taking features have been enhanced.

Saurat: Sherman has been one of the most important photographic artists of the past 30 years. The fact that so many people here are so dismissive, or, worse, are utterly ignorant of her work confirms my suspicions of DPR commenters - a bunch of ignorant philistine gear-sniffers who know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

sh10453, very well said.

I can't pose male friends. They are all bald, fat, old and dumpy looking.

BigBen08: Besides super large prints (or billboards) what can this $50K camera do that my 6D or 1DMKIV can't?

Sports, action photography.
Hmmm...I don't see pro shooters giving up their C&N gear and moving to m43.

This is great, as Burbank is only about 7 miles from me.
I'll have to see if they can tune my 300 f2.8 IS II.
