docfink: The Olympus certainly is an impressive camera, but I doubt the D500 would have been that much bigger or heavier...either are great travel companions, imho.

Having grown up carrying a Hasselblad 500C/M and various Nikon film cameras with me wherever I went, I might define "travel camera" differently. I'm a fan of the quality file though, so if that means a pic will be better from a slightly larger camera, it's okay with me. YMMV!

Well, mine has served me well for my kids' sports and since it gets so little use, I'll just keep it. No need for me to upgrade.

photomedium: Great camera in absolute terms but I handled at the store and it's way too hefty for me for an APSC and in my mind it has created the expectation for the D810/D750 successor.
I understand the price policies but If I have to carry the weight of an D810 and pay the money of a D750 I want full frame.

I have the D810 also, and compared to that camera with the 24-70G, the D500 and 16-80 combo feel about a pound lighter. It's much easier to carry and feels great in the hand. The D810 stays, though.

rwol1970: If they would just fit all this in a more compact product....

I'm actually surprised at how much lighter it is than my D810. Yes, the files are nicer with the D810, but for 99% of what we do as serious amateurs, the D500's speed and lighter weight is nice. I won't give up the D810 anytime soon, but I've had fun with the new camera. I'm very impressed with the viewfinder image. It's much brighter than the old D200 and nearly as sweet as the FF Nikons.

Change the title of the article. It implies LR negatively reviewed the lens. "Physically takes apart the lens" is more appropriate.

Nice, but I'd like to know when I can get my 150-600 Tamron for Nikon I've been waiting for...

docfink: I gotta finally shout this out to all the whiney, geeky, pixel-peeping ninnies out there who love to tout one brand over another and make these photo forums the MOST ANNOYING AND UNINFORMATIVE areas for discourse on the net:

The D800 is sweet. The 5D3 will kick ass too. Your lenses will work beautifully on the D800 and the focus will be sharp--even when wide open. Geeks and pixel peepers will be annoyed by certain things, but clients and family will think you're the second coming of Ansel Adams. Got that?

Again, as someone who has several other hobbies for which I frequent Internet Forums, these photo forums ARE AN EMBARRASSMENT and a turnoff to those who actually want to learn. It's hard to filter out the useful with all the whiney crap posted in between. Police yourselves, please.

Let's get a moderator here to delete annoying comments that have nothing to do with the original post or go off topic.

Seriously--consider what I'm saying before you cry and post junk.

Really? How about "the D800 is sweet". Like I said, "pixel-peeping ninnies". ..

...great early review of rhe D800. Looking forward to it showing me how average I am!
