Nikon improves the ability to delete Pictures - very meaningful.

Photo Pete: Too small in the frame. The photographer should have used their feet and got closer. Sheesh.... basic photographic technique.

No, when you get closer, you change the perspective!

They schould have taken a telephoto lense.

Triplet Perar: Folks seem to forget the history of photography. 35mm photography used film from *35mm movie cameras* to create a visual art and expression distinguished from movies. It is called the still picture, NOT the moving picture. Now Sony wants to undo the history, and throw us back into pure movie cameras business, because that was their intent all along, to turn the photography market into video market, a strategy of which they bragged about.
Those 20 fps in A9 is "just 4 fps short" of movie mode — now, does Sony think users are that stupid not to see what they do by deliberate design? They cut off at 20, just to have some guts to call this a 'photography camera', and not what it REALLY is. But prudence calls to call spade a spade, and this camera IS a movie camera, pretending to be a 'photography camera'.

Same post as three hours ago and still makes no sense.

barrym1966: A whole Sony interview even including wedding photography and no mention of the A99ii?

The interview focuses on the future, not the past.

Should you upgrade from the D7200 to the D7500 (especially at that price point)?

The only reason for such a strange decision could be to save Nikon from a soon insolvency.

Matsu: DPR did very poorly to simply pick-up and repeat this press release without any analysis. At best it's distorted to the point of meaninglessness, reflecting two months of off-peak period numbers within a narrow market and geographic segment. Crafty work by the PR company, but not something that should be reprinted without at least some editorial comment explaining the numbers.

"..., but not something that should be reprinted without at least some editorial comment explaining the numbers."

What´s so hard to understand these numbers?

Wow Nikon, these great announcements will save your ass for sure.

Great detail. But:
1. I cannot affort it.
2. Honestly speaking, I don´t need it for my purposes.

PhotoKhan: Ok...

I click in this review link and the very first image I see - a simple shot of an apple chosen by Allison to illustrate the first page - has a color rendition, tone mapping range, micro contrast management and appropriate sharpness acuity that make the apple look like it is popping in 3D from my monitor.

If people can't see what Canon cameras bring to the table (...regardless of weaker or stronger feature sets than the competition...) in terms of sheer overall image quality, I really can't help them.

A red apple on the top of green/yellow apples is "popping in 3D" because of the "sheer image quality" of Canon !?!

What a nonsense.

The size is great for the pocket.


1. Slow lens
2. No 4k
3. No EVF

So neither one thing nor another.

On article Lensrentals tears down the Nikon 105mm F1.4 (157 comments in total)
In reply to:

noflashplease: Just how much cost cutting is acceptable in a $2,200 lens? For this price, I'd expect a ring ultrasonic motor, not a geared micromotor. The rest of the build looks cheap and old fashioned as well. This is what I'd expect from bargain bin 3rd party lens of yesteryear, not a Nikkor at this price level.

Richard Butler: "Ring-type AF tends to perform poorly for the constant changes in direction that CDAF (as used in video and live view on most Nikon bodies) requires."

But CDAF is in any case nearlly unusable on Nikon bodies, therefore no reason to use a micro motor on this lense.
