FRA7: I'm the only one to be disappointed with the new fold out LCD screen?

It's certainly a more practical LCD, but it makes the equipment more fragile!

What do you think of this monitor?

That fold out LCD first hit the market on the D750. I can personally attest that this set-up is as tough as nails! I don't abuse my equipment, but I don't baby it either and it's never been a problem. The 'convenience' vs. 'risk' factor makes it a very useful and well conceived addition.

athman: Many people seem to have missed the part where it says "Both options will stay".
I can't understand why people 'hate' so much. BOTH will stay, so just chose which you like and get on with life...

I don't get the connection... how do you confuse feedback with 'hate' - they asked for feedback they've got it! Take a pill and relax dude - if you're that uptight you've got no business having a camera in your hand in the first place! - You do realize that your attitude's more important than megapixels right?
It will always reflect in your work. If yours is junk, it's probably not a camera's fault.

Graphically speaking the black background is easier on the eyes. Always appreciated that about this site. The white background looks like everyone else's junk... another snowstorm to squint my way through. For the purposes of this survey; I believe giving people the option is always the best way to roll!

pixperfect: Fact, the D750 is not a replacement of the D700 but only an upgrade of the D610. The front monocoque is carbon fiber reinforced PLASTIC, so be careful! I don't think that front monocoque will last very long, especially when using heavy zoom. Small prime lenses are recommended. Nikon just saved tons of money!

Your comments about 'plastics' are sadly misinformed. When you re-entered the atmosphere, the realization that plastics have taken over manufacturing process must have been tough to take.
When I think of plastics and carbon fiber composites, I think in terms of Glock and Smith& Wesson. If plastics can handle the recoil from a .45 auto, anything a camera can throw at them is a vacation. BTW B.M.W. uses plastic composites for the EXHAUST manifolds on their MINI' 1000+ degrees...think it's tough enough to hold a sensor and a lens?
