Chuck Yadmark: The number of cameras compatible with both lenses is limited. Even for compatible cameras, firmware update may be required*. Fully compatible models: D5500, D5300*, D3400, D3300*, D500 and later models

Compatible models with limited functions: D5, D810 series, Df, D750, D7200, D7100, D5200, Nikon 1 series with the FT1

Incompatible models: D4 series, D3 series, D2 series, D1 series, D800 series, D700, D610, D600, D300 series, D200, D100, D7000, D5100, D5000, D90, D80, D70 series, D3200, D3100, D3000, D60, D50, D40 series, film cameras

limited function means VR cannot be turned off, as there is no external manual switch, and VR must be turned off in menu. This menu option for whatever reason does not appear in the limited function models.

runbei99: The Nikon 1 Series were the cameras that everyone panned and frowned at until they actually used them. And then - wow, did Nikon squeeze some special juice out of that tiny sensor. My V1 pics (in good light) still look wonderful to me, even though I'm shooting with a Canon full-frame 6D these days. In low light, ugh, ISO 3200 that destroys skin. Not sorry I sold the V1, but in the right conditions it was spectacularly ... nice.

I waited patiently for a mirrorless Nikon after the 4/3's started coming out. When it was 800 dollars AND 1inch AND didn't use the Nikon iTTL flash it was a non-starter for me.

Having said that I have just recently bought a V1 for 200 bucks and I will agree that it is much better than I expected, but the dof limitation is still a problem for me

Also good news that I bet a lot of older heavier used ones will come on the market from folks buying these.

Chuck Yadmark: The Carry-On appears to be not quite as wide or tall as it could be. I don't understand that part.

The website lists internal dimensions at first glance. So the carry-on is indeed 22x14x9 inches.

gskolenda: They are way over priced! They need some stiff competition.

there is some competition from Nunuk and SK, but it doesn't seem to do that much. Having said that, I got the SK competitor for 80 dollars and it works very well.

Calvin Chann: It's overhead compartment friendly until they see the case and demand to weigh it, at which time you'll be politely requested to check it in.

That's why I do a little acting job to make it seem very light when I lift it up.

On article Nikon's New D5 and D500 Push the Boundaries of DSLR (719 comments in total)
In reply to:

arhmatic: I know most of you think this is nonsense, but if they would only try to push the boundaries of styling a little more, they would have my money. The "feel" of a DSRL is essentially the same since the D1. Style matters, regardless of industry or purpose.

Hundreds of people, thousands of posts for 7 years have been complaining about no D300 follow up. I have never seen a complaint about aesthetics until right now.

Chuck Yadmark: The division between those who just don't get it, which is a lot, and for those tha t this camera is the second coming, which is a lot., cracks me up.

Name one other Nikon camera that puts or will put 20mp on a DX sized crop at 10fps with top-of-the-line Autofocus, and with ISO 51000. Hint: None, not a D4s, not the 7200, not the D750, not the new D5.

If these features are esoteric to you, then the camera isn't for you.

I and others LIVE at the limit of the cameras specs every time we shoot our stuff, and for this it is priceless.

If they did this every 2 years you might have a point. But it's been 7, and maybe 9 if you don't count the 300s as a proper effort.

richard cohen: A couple of mixed signals so far...dpr says no to onboard flash, nikon site says yes. Dpr and nikon site say 1 xqd and 1 sd slot, other sites say 2 sd slots...Personally i hope for no xqd but yes on onboard flash...

I have a d810 and d750 now, and while I have never fully bought off on the 'extra reach' of a dx sensor since it really is only a narrower fov, at the same time the speed and agility and new af system of the d500 might make it a perfect wildlife camera..if the iq and low light performance are up to snuff. We'll see, but this is clearly a big deal release for nikon.

I have taped my pop up flashes shut since the beginning.

Craig NC: Really, $2000 for the body and its only APSC?

For those who need what the camera brings, it's a bargain. On paper, of course.

Soggoth: $2000 looks a bit steep for DX camera

To you, maybe, but then maybe it's not for you. This is me all the way and I would have paid a thousand more for a camera with these features, which I want/need every single one.

mpgxsvcd: Just tell me what the cost is. That is the main thing I want to know.

Well the 200-500 came in at an astonishingly low price, so I'm hopeful
