Photo_AK: A bit of a stretch, calling closing of a single webshop Nikon Store "shutting down all sales operations in Brazil," don't ya think ...?!
It's like calling smashing a fly murdering an animal. This is not fair and honest reporting, DPR. Not even close.

Yeah, skorpionet, I do realize they're not wrong per se, they're just unnecessaraly over-dramatising; "Nikon will shut down their webstore in Brazil at the end of 2017" wouldn't be such a catchy headline, I guess ...

"... months and months of planning ..."

I don't get it ... what is there to plan, except chosing the location? I mean ... the guy was there with obviously two (24-70 and 70-200) zoom lenses and just pointed his cam to the Sun ... what exactly was he planning for all those months ...???

Mateus1: If I wanted a digital camera for landcape (I still use film 6x9) I think I would take D850 with Zeiss Milvus glass: 21/2.8, 35/2, 59/1.4 and 100/2 over MF Fuji or Hassy.

I would sure like a 59/1.4 Milvus ... but I guess that's why I bought the 58/1.4 NIKKOR ;)

OK. Look at the images, the lens diagrams. Imagine the front filter thread is 72 or 77 mm and now try to imagine the lens' length. These two lenses are HUGE!
Me says these are only patents that will never come to fruition. Maybe some other lens designs in the future will be based on some of the solutions presented in these patents, but that's all.

dirkluchtman: So a faster live view implementation with touch sensitive AF like Canon DPAF is not on the wish list? I thought this is the one thing Nikon needs to improve on.

Yeah, right. To me, this sounds like you've got a pre-prod sample of D850 at DPReview and are basically listing specs you like most and in the end, you'll be able to say "It all came true for us" ... ;)

In reply to:

shirazigs: You said "More pixels (but not too many more)" and "36MP is fine, and more pixels = bigger file sizes, and more work for the camera's processor"

I have a question. Do you think 4K = bigger file sizes, and more work for the camera's processor?
To me, I want to see 75MP or higher. Canon has a 50MP camera and has been working on 120MP. The Resolution is my main factor to buy a D850.

Nikon WILL NOT use a known/allready used sensor for their most important camera! The D850 will not come with Sony's 42 mpix sensor.

tinternaut: Does this get to be where, over the next year or two, we see Nikon increasingly hamstrung by its dependence on Sony while Canon's sensor tech* improves?

* Notwithstanding the 6D II idiocy.

Nikon doesn't just go and buy Sony's sensors, you raelly don't get that, do you?! Sony manufactures some of the sensors for Nikon, so sensors are Nikon specified and designed. What happens is Nikon basically rents Sony's production lines.

weixing: To get 8k, just need to be a bit more MP (at least ~39.4MP) than current d810, but wonder how much Nikon will put on it?? Will it more than 50MP??

"limited to Sony's existing sensor lineup."

That's a good one ... now why would that be?

Photo_AK: Please, DPR, try contacting Nikon about compatibility of this new NIKKOR with their D-SLR cameras, because it's very unclear!

On the US website the disclaimer says:

"Fully compatible models: D7500, D5600, D5500, D5300*, D3400, D3300*, D500 and later models

Compatible models with limited functions: D5, D810 series, Df, D750, D7200, D7100, D5200, Nikon 1 series with the FT1

Incompatible models: D4 series, D3 series, D2 series, D1 series, D800 series, D700, D610, D600, D300 series, D200, D100, D7000, D5100, D5000, D90, D80, D70 series, D3200, D3100, D3000, D60, D50, D40 series, film cameras"

Nowhere do they state, what are those "limited functions" on some of the cameras and why the others are incompatible?

Because usually what limits AF-P lenses is the lack of physical AF and VR controls/switches (menu controls only), but this lens has both?

It's all written in the 2 posts above yours, you are able to read ... yes?

So all I need to do as a Nikon D810 user to be able to use this lens is set the standby timer to "No Limit" and that's it. An acceptable compromise ...

I've got a response from Nikon, so 100% valid:

"1) All functions can be used without limitations or the need for FW update´╝Ü
D500, D7500, D5600, D3400

2) All functions can be used when FW is updated to the latest version:
D5, D750, D610, D600, D5500, D5300, D3300

3) The following cameras can be used with some limitations regardless of firmware update: D4, D4S, D3, D3X, D3S, D810, D810A, D800, D800E, Df, D700, D300, D300S, D7200, D7100, D7000, D5200

Note [about the limitations]: If the standby timer is allowed to expire, the focus position will change when the timer is restarted. Refocus before shooting. Longer standby times are recommended in situations in which you may not release the shutter immediately after focusing.

4) The following cameras are not compatible:
D2 series, D1 series, D200, D100, D90, D80, D70 series, D60, D50,
D40 series, D5100, D5000, D3200, D3100, D3000, and film SLR cameras"

Don't get me wrong, but ... I really, really do not see how KR can be a reliable source for such info. He's anything but that.

I think this lens is actually compatible with all the cameras that support E-type lenses - so from D3100, D5000, D90, D3 on ... and the AF-P/stepping motor in not a limitation. Or ...?

We really do need this info ...!
