Nicolas Alexander Otto: Thanks a bunch. Also for posting images with different lenses, although I think it's impossible to post images with all of them at least a variety is covered. Since I wondered how many of the older 2012er lenses are actually using the 45MPx this is really interesting. I just grabbed some of the landscape images for viewing.

I feel like Nikon will have to update some of their older lenses such as the 24-85, 24-120 and 16-35 at least.

Yep, that lens even though it is so old now still delivers. It would only need better coating against flare I think. Other than that I think Nikon could up the ante a little bit with a new revamped f2.4 with better edge sharpness or so. But in general there is not much to be desired and no on has been able to replicate that lens so far. And their other lenses need to be attended to first anyway.

Hm, now this video wasn't very informative to say the least. ;-)

Stitzer23: What good is NASA if they're just gonna stay terrestrial? Fly to the sun for your corona pics!

I doubt that would work, somehow :P

Basically this is automated focal length blending? I knew it was just a matter of time until someone came up with this. I see some photographers jumping on it to make mountains bigger and get absolutely unrealistic. :/

Very cool to be in such good company. Amazing deep sky photography!

Nuno Saldanha: It will cost like what? $2800? Like the D810? Or it will be something insane like the D810A?

Well if they don't want more people to hop onto the A7RII it has to be below $3000 I would reckon. Because there is already a used market for it.

I am not sure about that, because Nikon has Sony on their tail and can't afford to lose more people to the Alpha7s

On article Ten things we're hoping for from the Nikon D850 (479 comments in total)

I actually wrote a list some time ago in an elaborate mail to Nikon for the D810 replacement. But it boiled down to essentially this.

1. Fully articulated screen
2. Better ISO Performance
3. In camera stabilization
4. Live View Boost (for low light situations)
5. Live Time (seeing the histogramm during long exposures)
6. WiFi that works fine
7. Increased dynamic range
8. Focus Peaking
9. 2500€ Price Tag (I just added that knowing it'll be smart so they can get back the Sony crowd but most likely unrealistic)

WhaleShark: FOCUS PEAKING in live view. PUH-LEEZE!

Why this hasn't been in all Nikon bodies for years is beyond me. It would instantly triple the cameras' useability for video.

Yeah, I wonder why that isn't a thing other than with Mirrorless and Pentax cameras. It's so handy.

Nicolas Alexander Otto: I would add some software features like "live view boost", "focus peaking" or "live-time" (long exposure previews) and maybe in camera stabilization. But 40MPxs, 15EV dynamic range, a articulated screen, workable high ISO akin to the A7S would be terrific.

Yep, indeed. Or Pentax, oh wait. :D

Damn, if had a good replacement for my 14-24 f/2.8 in terms of UWA I would simply get this lens and a good UWA for general purpose like a 16-35 II if Nikon ever gets to it. But maybe Sigma or Tamron will bring out a good general purpose UWA. you never know.

I must say though I love the fact that the Sigma 14mm has little to no vignetting!

For me as a landscaper this is great. September is travel season for me which is why I missed that last two photokinas and will miss the next one do to being busy giving workshops, hopefully I'll make it to the one in May.

Good thing that Canon at least has the upper hand in first party lenses over most other manufactures, otherwise they'd be dead in the water in the eyes of professionals pretty soon and less competition is always a bad thing for consumers.
