beavertown: Hi Dpreview, how could you not include the DL?

It would have made the review much more exciting if Nikon had released the DL line up as they were the original creator of the 1 inch sensor, sadly they were also the victim of their own creation.

Are those circular buttons towards the front of the lens a copy of Nikon 70-200 FL?

On article Sigma announces 14mm T2 and 135mm T2 Cine Prime lenses (32 comments in total)

Only hard working firms would do well in business, obviously Sigma isn't one of the tardy ones who have done badly for the past few years.

Okay Canon I will pay but can you guarantee us it won't switch off support for 3rd party batteries?

Bashing something with dignity like Sony is actually the best way to encourage them to improve and become better and better, so keep laughing at Sony you lots.

....wait, hasn't Nikon been bashed for a decade and where is the improvement?

Triplet Perar: Folks seem to forget the history of photography. 35mm photography used film from *35mm movie cameras* to create a visual art and expression distinguished from movies. It is called the still picture, NOT the moving picture. Now Sony wants to undo the history, and throw us back into pure movie cameras business, because that was their intent all along, to turn the photography market into video market, a strategy of which they bragged about.
Those 20 fps in A9 is "just 4 fps short" of movie mode — now, does Sony think users are that stupid not to see what they do by deliberate design? They cut off at 20, just to have some guts to call this a 'photography camera', and not what it REALLY is. But prudence calls to call spade a spade, and this camera IS a movie camera, pretending to be a 'photography camera'.

What if those 20 movie pictures have top notch image quality with accurate focus and what's wrong with no matter how you call it?

KonstantinosK: Sony keeps on turning the camera world upside down. Amazing.

Sony, Sigma, Fuji should have got a game changing award for that reason.

In two years' time or so, when Sigma announce a new lens... it will be first available for Canon and Sony mounts, then Nikon and Fuji.

On article Nikon announces midrange D7500 DSLR (396 comments in total)

Does this camera have a built in autofocus motor? It is a benchmark of the D7xxx series that shouldn't be taken away.

Face Detection through the Viewfinder or through Live View?

While the upcoming Sigma and Canon are for the future.

@HFLM May I ask if the 3rd party lenses you have used so far are Sigma Art and Tamron New SP series?

From Jared Polin's recent review of:
"Tamron 70-200 f2.8 G2 Real World Review vs Nikon 70-200 f2.8E: Is the Tamron Better for $1500 Less?"
doesn't show the significance at all.

thx1138: Didn't Canon get the memo, this market is dead and buried. Smartphones have sensors this size now and sure while they don't have optical zoom yet, the IQ has improved dramatically, just look at S7 and Pixel.

Canon should focus on 2/3" and 1" sensors for its compacts and frankly I don't want or need 1000mm equivalent in a tiny camera of this class where the AF sucks anyway. Make it a 1" sensor with a 18-200 f/1.8 FF equivalent, and sign me up now.

Smartphones can do optical zoom as long as people are brainwashed by the phone manufacturing giants who put two separated cameras to it and tell users it can zoom, can do bokeh like DSLR and so on...

True, but it is Canon, just like Apple, they can make things a few years behind the market and still sell very well. Plus smartphone can't do superzoom as effective as the compact cameras

The only way to save Nikon is to get them to visit Dpreview forums, job done and problem solved... what about starting with updating the FT1 to give us back all the focus points?

The Nikon founders are turning in their graves now. Well done for the 100th anniversary.
