steelhead3: I'll wait for the Bergen model

Same as the Oslo model - with extra weather sealing.

Lars V: Is this double the Norway price, or double the U.S. price?

It's not only VAT. There is a "registration fee" of approx 150% on top of the VAT of 25%.

But close to double - correct.

samfan: Yes, it's nice. But if I want a small decent pocketable cam when I don't want to lug around this beast?

Or I just don't want to spend thousands, or lug around such beast in the first place, well Nikon has what?

Oh yea. Squat.

A nice upgrade for existing FX users for sure, at least for those that aren't tired with Nikon's constant QA problems. Also a nice new toy for those that always need the newest and greatest. Anyone else should think twice before investing in a Nikon system. They've burned their users way too many times already.

"They've burned their users way too many times already."

That "Sam" in samfan wouldn't be short for Samsung by chance? I guess Samsung only burned their users once.

Nikon does have lighter cameras already and are openly disclosing development of mirrorless cameras. Nikon for one have stayed loyal to their users by sticking to the F-mount.

Georgeee: Can they put the logo "Think Tank" under the lid? Look conspicuous

The retrospective series have no visible logos.

SnapHappy32: Wait a minute.

The photo of the basketball player was in another article regarding flash photography. There was a speedlight behind his right leg. Another picture of him was taken from the front... about a week ago.. But I can't seem to find it now...

Can anyone confirm?

On another note. Now is the time to pickup a used d810. Im seeing them for much less than 2.000 EUR. Less than a d750.

That would have been a better way of stating it, yes.

The timeline. That samples taken with the camera were available at least a week ago - if I could find the photo I would be able check the EXIF data.

Simple isn't it? Guess not...

Giao Nguyen: D850 is a copy of Sony A99II

Says the Troll-clone.

The Nikon does have a lens mount which doesn't seem to have been abandoned, first of all.

And the a99II is an amazing camera. Even if the D850 is only slightly better with regards to IQ, light-gathering and AF that's no mean feat.

kevin_r: Rumors had it that this cam would be lighter than the D810 but the specs indicate it actually weighs MORE!!!!
980g versus 1015g with battery. Go figure. Maybe it's the battery's fault.

Oh Lord. Sean - I was being sarcastic.

Instead of eg. calling out the OP for being an annoying troll ..

Yup. My thoughts excactly.

Those 35 grams negate ALL other improvements.
What a letdown.

No. 7 wins it for me. Hands down.

In reply to:

Akpinxit: I struggle to understand what is so good in such blurry F2.8 images ?

When chasing a toddler indoors 2.8 zooms allow for faster SS while framing becomes easier. It's that simple. Yup. First kid - I'm shooting 100's of frames daily and using my 2.8 Nikon @ 2.8 every second of it.

I second that Brendon - some photogs are inherently insecure and have to resort to name-calling .. Lets hope they become less judgemental when they grow up.

HDPro Brasil: I have o get a Volvo and sell my Sigma and Canon cameras. This is so obvious, the camera is always with you, genious!

Indoor portraits are a bit of a hassle..

DPPMetro: It is obvious that any company in imaging looking to have a future would develop a large-sensor mirrorless and stick with it. So Nikon is worried about their survival and doing something about it, so they MUST develop mirrorless or die. All roadmaps lead to mirrorless sometime in the future.

For instance, Pentax has not even in inkling of mirrorless in the future and because of that, you can ascertain what you need to about the future.

Very exciting news and I bet Nikon is going give us what we all want- on sensor focus that works, along with low crop 4k, and insane high-ISO performance, plus access to great lenses.

Wait a minute..

Pentax launched a mirrorless years ago. The K-01..
On paper it was a smart product utilising the existing lenses.

Roland Karlsson: The guessing goes on :) I still would put any money on a 1 inch camera that is adapted for the smartphone generation somehow.

Motivation: they are talking about a camera for the smartphone generation. It is very unlikely that the will create a new mount for this narrow customer base.

😎

I think Roland has a point. Read it again - carefully.

"Smart phone generation" and "fun" along with the quote on medium to high end DSLRS does not sound all that reassuring with regards to a large format ML camera.. It could be a "Pro" 1-incher..

To me it sounds like the ML is directed at a younger crowd. Most likely touchscreen and app based - something like the new Leica.

Gesture: Photography-the pretentious art.

Personally I find Uelsmanns work to be boring and based on variations of a formula.

Stating any art as universally "artful" is imho pretentious.

There are simpler minds - mine included - who consider eg a portrait of a lost relative infinitely more powerful than anything any professional photographer could ever capture.

Photography CAN be art. But it is so much more. And most of it is available to all of us. Learn the arts if you are so inclined - I'm happy just being able to document the life of my loved ones every single day.

I find myself drawn to the Fiat 500 shot. Beautiful interplay between light and shadow.

VadymA: Steve Job's dream was to "make a dent in the Universe" and he certainly did. With his vision for iPhone and iPad he completely changed the way we browse Internet, find directions, learn, read, and yes take pictures. Almost ten years since he's gone and there was nothing as revolutionary in consumer electeoncics as those two Apple devices. Not even from Apple themselves. I am sure without his vision for an iPhone, we would still be punching buttons on BlackBerries...

You're missing the point.

Ipods were the most popular portable media players around and the iPhone added a phone and further functionality to that. I didn't state anywhere that they invented new tech - they just managed to collect so many features in a very easy to use package.

It was ahead of everyone when it was introduced. The LG was introduced after the iPhone. Windows phones as a serious competitor went the way of the Dodo a year later. Your grasp of the timeline is the only BS here...
