beavertown: Wow, upgrading the battery means a camera upgrade?

Can Nikon upgrade a lens hood, cap etc and name it a new lens next time?

Nikon finally trumps Canon in terms of insulting their own customers.

A replacement model normally an upgrade and an update, that is the point to release a new model and do business, otherwise the company is behind the game.

D3xxx users also upgrade to newer D3xxx models. If you already own, for instance a D3000, Nikon also wants you to buy the newer D3xxx models as well as D5xxx models.

Each product line has its unique features to its targeted audience, so every products line have its upgrade model, same for the D1 to now the D5.

I believe calling a new model D3400 that replaces the old model called D3300 normally expected as an upgraded camera. Sad this is the best what Nikon can do.

I hope they didn't eliminate the mic jack since this camera is an upgrade.

Wait, 70-300 plastic mount or metal?

My 55-300 is metal.

I Own It, I Want It, I had It and can you add another button I HATE IT?

This Nikon 70-300mm along with the Canon's 55-250 probably the ugliest telephoto lenses ever designed.

For sure the M series doesn't have a bad lens although the lens line up is very narrow.

The 22mm prime + any M body make it the most unbeatable value in the APS-C Mirrorless sector as a walk around camera. With this the M will always survive and plays an important role.

I used to think Canon is the only camera manufacturer who knows how to COOK Jpeg until I bought my Fuji camera.

Fuji Jpeg is unmatched and the best. May be it is to do with their expertise in film producing history?

1/3.1" smartphone sensor not even 1.8 aperture? Seriously??? Why making quiet underwater environment noisy?

Shouldn't insult the kids by buying this crap for them.

In reply to:

Nikonandmore: I have the feeling, just about all lenses now are "Leica" and MF price range. Sony, Zeiss, Canon, Nikon.. amazing! I don't understand how these manufactures survive to sell enough of these or how people manage to have money to feed this price frenzy. It will only take cell phone sensors, lenses and technology to get a bit better FOR ONE to buy DSLRs anymore. This market is dead and at these prices, sinking faster and faster. Costs 10 grand (or more) these days to buy a pro/enthusiast grade body and 2 or 3 lenses. Sorry, but this and it's pricing momentum is all becoming absurd. And mind you, these new lenses are all mass produced in 3rd world countries and with more and more dubious quality control. Long gone are the "Made in Japan" days with solid products made with extremely qualified manual labor, excellent quality control AND real long-term post sales support! Indeed Leicas start looking really affordable..

Well said. Had to give you a LIKE :)

Michael Keeney: Thanks for the review. I agree with the gold award and am an owner of both a D500 and D750.

I find it quite astonishing and am left in disbelief that the review kept hitting on the D500's image quality as "the best in it's class" but not drastically improved over the D7200. I could not disagree more. I've never owned the D7200 but have rented it and still possess RAW files from having shot with it. I must say that the D500 is leaps and bounds improved over the D7200 in high ISO performance. In fact, it's VERY close to the D750. It's color saturation is the best I've ever seen out of any DSLR, and I've owned plenty through the years.

@Saurat You are such an axxhole of your grandmother.

Hi, I am in a dilemma of choosing from D750 and D500. One thing bothers me is I want to know which of these two cameras produces more pleasing JPG colors straight out of the camera in your opinion? Thanks a lot. :)

It is about the photographer, not the camera. These photos say it all.

Joed700: Canon, just buy sensors from Sony...

@ John C Tharp
Seem to be true. By the way, how do Nikon and Canon prevent their Jpg recipes being stolen by Sony since Sony produces some of their sensors?

Or the Jpg engine is inside the camera, so the sensor alone isn't enough for Sony to know the Jpg recipe?

Sorry for my English.

@Yake
Just curious, doesn't Sony produced Canon sensors have Canon colors like some of their 1" Powershots?

Also Sony produced Nikon sensors seem to have Nikon colors, am I wrong?
