Kabe Luna: Hmmm... Don't see anything in the samples that represents a significant advantage over monochrome images created from color captures. So, I'll stick with my Bayer cameras.

On this type of sensor, there is little to no need to sharpen. Did you ever look at a raw image with no sharpening?

Best camera of 2016 * **

Small text:
* Of all models released in 2016 **At the time of publication, Jan 6 2016.

....Small time into the future, Sony A6100 and Sony A9 series come out. D500, and D5 become "and here are the runner up's"

Nikon has become the Ms. Colombia of cameras.

Ghislain Leduc: Pushed the boundaries? Really ? 3minutes recording in 4k that is pushing the boundaries?

Sorry but all the other stuff, it should have been up there 2-3 years ago... I really don't call these bodies special in anyway...

Bluetooth? So what...
20mp instead of 24mp ? Duh...
860g, where is the next technology in here?
What about also making those body more energy saving?
There are a few good things yes but absolutely nothing that pushed the boundaries...

Maybe only the ISO but we have still to see how much better image quality is at the top end.

Mssimo: I think the number 4 is thought to be unlucky in Japan if I remember correctly. Maybe that is why the skipped D400 name. No idea why they kept D4 and others.

From HBR: Product names. It’s common for companies to release products in a numbered series. However, many companies remove the number 4 or the number 13 due to their bad luck connotations in the East and West, respectively. Japanese camera maker Fuji skips the series 4 and jumps directly from series 3 to series 5 for this reason. Likewise, Canon introduced its Powershot G15, skipping both G13 and G14.

I'll wait for the digital version of the Kodak 8mm in a few years.

BlutengelNoUta: Wish there were some samples of song birds, or even city doves, at common birding distances. While one is able to see lovely detail in these shot the birds are too big and take up too much space in the frame.

Lets put big foot and chupacabra on the list while we are at it.

halfwaythere: The biggest question that remains unanswered: will Thom Hogan be able to forgive Nikon?

Maybe that is buried deep within the specs.

tecnoworld: Nx1 with a mirror and lower fps ;-) one year later.

P.s.: of course it'll score higher in dpr review.

$500 more than NX1

Mssimo: Show of hands: Nikon D500 or the rumored Sony A6100 ((see sonyalpharumors))

36mp BSI sensor,
silent electronic shutter mode,
IBIS (5 axis stabilization?)
4K recording
Touchscreen
Fast EVF larger than Optical VF on D810?
Wifi and other features
Price around $1000 to $1300 (my own guess)

<-- D810 owner. As far as "system goes" Being able to use Nikon, canon, sigma, Leica M, and so on.... that is the dream system. Add metabones turbo adapters and it gets silly.
@whyamihere
1: Why are you here? Also, no rush since Nikon is not on the streets yet.
2: Nikon has not released a compelling APS-C lens ever..and its been around for (13+ years?)
3: E-Mount lenses are high in price but Batis lenses are awesome. Nikon does have some awesome new FF tele lenses such as the 300 f4 and 200-500mm.
4: The D500 would be a great alternative to a Teleconverter. I dont know a TC that up's the frame rate to 10fps...kind of neat when you think about it that way.

Yeah...it not like someone will make something called a NX1 for $1000 less. Be realistic.

Mssimo: PRO $2000 DX camera....where are the PRO DX lenses?

...70-200? Its like asking full frame users to just use Medium Format lenses. It works...yes but its a waste of money and very heavy. Sigma 50-150mm is a good example of what Nikon needs to do if it expects to sell top of the line DX cameras.

They should include free with this lens: Long hair, acoustic guitar, campfire, egg yolks (for dreads dude), patchouli oil, slurred speech, peace, love, lots of drugs for lots of "free love".

Seems like the RAW overlay is on camera JPG vs ACR. Use filenames to see what is in camera or ACR for now.

The kick in the nuts here is the price. Its a good camera, but at almost $4k with no 4k (video).....its over before the start.
