Pro: JPEGs offer typically good 'Canon color'

Canon JPEG Colors can't be called 'Good', it should be called 'Amazing'.

QuarryCat: So bad - Sigma failed again.
We all want the best Performance for half the price.
But all Nikon-Users will have to pay for the 14-24 mm monster or stay with the 16-35 mm VR -
all Canon-Users will dream from the heavy-fat 11-24 mm L or live with the very good 4/16-35 mm L IS
all others still wait for a real good ultra-wideangle or use single focal lenses.
The Tamron 15-30 mm doesn't deliver, not for Pentax, nor for Canon or Nikon.
And the new Sigma stays disappointing for to much money.
Next chance is Nikon, to built a real good, not so large 4.0/14-24 mm.

For sure, but Sigma hadn't been failed once since the first introduction of the Art line. It is the first time, plus it will be sold half the price of the Cankon with more than 9/10 as good. You wont go wrong getting this lens and no one can tell the difference without side by side pixel peeping.

Minor differences in image quality but huge differences in prices. The Sigma is the all round winner.

Aroart: I'm suprised Nikon would charge so much especially with Sigma, Tamron, Tokina have been stepping up lately and making high quality lenses ... I always thought that advancements in tech make things less expensive, apparently camera companies haven't been given the memo..

May be putting the price much higher than Sigma and Tamron's can differentiate that Nikon lenses are more superior when the majority people who don't look at in-depth comparison reviews. Smart act of Nikon since they don't innovate.

brycesteiner: How come Nikon, Canon get all the lens coverage but Olympus, Panasonic and Sony are pretty much excluded from the DXO comparison chart? There are a couple but nothing that you can truly compare with these other brands to find out which system has the best lenses.

Thanks Dpreview, it means you are going to review them? Thank you in advance.

Why do Sony cameras need to use optical inferior lenses from Nikon?

thubten: Why does an adapter cost as much as a lens?

Because they don't have enough competitors.

They keep making impressive lenses, I wonder if they continue to improve and one day surpass Nikon's lenes in terms of technology and everything, what would Nikon's response? They are increasing the prices but still below Nikon's. I feel Nikon would make their prices higher than Sigma's for the sake of saving face.

In reply to:

marike6: What a bunch of complainers, the D5500 is already an excellent entry level camera with superb IQ and video quality. If it's not broke, don't fix it. If you need a pro grade crop sensor camera, there are few better than the D500. But Nikon is not about to make a cheaper, better, smaller D7000 series camera. And the reason why the 5000 series bodies sell so well is because they are easy to use, small/lightweight and have GREAT IQ. And Nikon's system of lenses, flashes and accessories absolutely destroys everybody else's except for Canon. Panasonic or Sony APS-C lenses (save a few Pany short primes) and flashes just aren't cutting it. Neither company can build a telephoto lens to save their life. Panasonic brought Leica in to build their 100-400 and it's probably the most expensive subpar telephoto zooms ever made. Don't get me started on flash systems (you guys remember, lighting), where Nikon / Canon are head and shoulders above anyone else.

It is not much to ask for including live exposure preview that even an entry level Canon dslr has it for long time.

Wu Jiaqiu: with the camera market shrinking you either have to expect minimal upgrades on an already great camera, or huge price hikes for a lot of features.....this looks like the future of the camera business.....or at least to myself

That is a great option indeed, or people jump ship and let the company die?

LOL, it looks like they use exactly the same body as the D5500. For the reason of using the same molds to save cost in production?

There are some design modifications in the bodies from D5000 to D5500, but this D5600... wow new low.

In reply to:

Antonis30: Does it have live exposure preview on the screen?

No, because "not having live exposure preview" is an iconic must have feature in Nikon's cameras. Something people regard as a con that they proudly think is a pro along with the slowest live view focus system on the planet. Well done Nikon, please upgrade the D7200 with Snapbridge and further sink your company to hell.

At least improve the focus performance in Live View, do we need to wait for ten years to have it?
