Photo_AK: Still a BS camera ... it's supposed to have it all, but still it lacks high image quality and low weight ... As a Nikon D810 and Leica Q user I don't even know why I'm comenting this ... my bad.

I'm not talking about price, what's that got to do with what I said? If the camera gives me what I want, I buy it, no matter the price. I'm not saying OM-D E-M1 Mark II is (too) expensive ... or (too) cheap.

D810 gives me the best image quality in FX format at the lowest ISO possible. So I bought it.

The Q is the only small, lightweight, fast-focusing and reliable camera with FX sensor and a fast 28mm lens. So I bought it.

The Q is actually not overpriced, if you think a bit ... an FX camera with fast AF, high image quality and 10 fps would cost at least 2.500 € and a fast, high-quality 28/1.7 FX lens at least 1.500 € ... and ... wait for it ... I payed for the Q in euros the Monday after the Brexit and it cost me 3.300 € after converting to GBP. The British stupidity served me well.

I am impressed with Olympus' lenses, though ... if they'd fit and would cover APS-C sized sensors, I'd buy a D7200 or D500 to pair it with them in a heartbeat!

KKnipser: Remember the analyst prediction on Nikon's miserable future from 2013?

Christopher Chute, market intelligence firm IDC’s research director of worldwide digital imaging:

“Nikon recently said they have a five year plan to address this. And my view is, that five year plan should have come out five years ago,” Mr. Chute said.
“They’re not going to be around in five years.”

Two more years then.

Mhm, those are words from the same guy, that in the same text said Nokia became one of "... consumer photography’s new guard for the typical shooter and even the avid enthusiast."

Well, Nikon is still here, Nokia isn't ...

VRI had button controls on it, then came the VRII without button controls and Nikon told us, it doesn't need them because of the sophisticated AF, introduced with D3/D300. Now we have the VRIII version and even more sophisticated AF with the introduction of D5/D500 and again the button controls on the VRIII lens ...

Go figure ...

On article Modest Updates: Nikon D3400 Review (373 comments in total)
In reply to:

Suntan: Did I miss it? How is it getting so many more shots per charge than the D3300?

The number of shots is cited by CIPA. By their standards, a certain percentage of shots must be taken with also firing the built-in flash.
As the built-in flash on D3400 is almost 50% weaker, it uses less power and that fact alone makes it possible to take a lot more total shots with a single charge on D3400 than D3300 ...
Fact is, you'll probably get the same number of shots with both cameras without using the built-in flash.

This must be one of the most boring camera introductions ever ... take a D3300, take away it's sensor cleaning filter, mic port, half the built-in flash power and Wi-Fi antenna, put a D3400 sticker on it and off we go ...

In reply to:

tissunique: Made in China but damned expensive...it's beyond me that Nikon have forgotten the great value photographers place on 'Made In Japan' - like makers such as Canon, Fuji and many others

It could be made in Japan, no doubt ... but then it would probably cost 2.999,95, so ... it can be made in East Timor, for all I care ...

Photo_AK: Anybody seen any MTF charts from the new lenses ...?

It's bigger than 105/1.4E NIKKOR ... and I'm pretty much sure it's also gonna be quite heavier ...
