Well done, Nikon! Let haters hate - most of them only wish they could put their hands on the D850.

Mike CH: It seems to me that DxO will soon be running out of numbers...

Not that they mean anything.

and yet here you are commenting and probably secretly desiring the D850.

O5iris: Neural networks and machine learning are extremely helpful and interesting in countless scientific applications but this is just lame... what's next, a camera-copter which flies to location and takes all the pictures for you without you leaving your seat? where is the fun and creativity in this? what about the subjective mind and interpretation of the photographer? this is idiotic to say the least.

All poor comparisons. None of those innovations stopped/stop you from being creative. Today the photographer still controls the creative process even if we're only talking about a lousy snapshot. This is one step in a completely different direction. This is artificial intelligence making all the decisions and taking the photo for you. Seriously, what do we want? do we want to be completely substituted by a machine? where could possibly be the gratification in that?
Don't get me wrong, I do admire what's inside this gadget, I've worked with machine learning myself and this is fascinating, yes, but purely from a scientific perspective.

Wow, I see a lot of envy and vitriol here. Sure the HDR is a bit over the top but still, these are great images. Kudos to the photographer, and I wish I'd have access to all these amazing places.

On article Nikon marks production of 75 millionth Nikkor lens (81 comments in total)

Well done, Nikon!
I've always been extremely happy with all my Nikon gear and would never even consider using any other brand. it would be totally pointless and counterproductive.

What a stupid error... If this is really only an UK thing then UK buyers are in a strong disadvantage comparing to other EU countries.
But to view this through another angle... why not buy EU, guys? It's a (+-) free market.

Taikonaut: ISO 1600 looks like D800 ISO 200.
There is less noise and no nasty colour fringing on the 22mp unlike the D800 samples.

You seriously need a pair of hubble-quality glasses.
