richard cohen: I'm no expert, but I have been very happy with my many high end isp monitors from Dell over the years..including my current 30 inch.

I've used Dell in the past as well as LG, Eizo and now BenQ. BenQ is really a good option if you do not want to pay the top but still gives you a screen with very good colour accuracy and screen uniformity

Looks a wonderful screen on paper, what is the refresh rate?

I've more than 250.000 RAW files (NEF's) since the beginning of using the D100. They're online, backup media (double) and the last 5 years on NAS. Every 5 years I make a 'mother' copy.

An other story is video, I think video is thrown away much more than photographic images.

andidas: I bought this. Using it since version 5.
Because it doesn’t require a subscription.
Image quality (denoising and RAW lens correction) is superior to Adobe.
There are some minor quirks in the operation and sidecar policy.
The user forum is very responsive and feedback taken on by developers.
This is a stunning software that produces fantastic results.

Lens correction, is it superior? By what is it superior? Love to see a comparison.
Last time I tried DxO it's noise handling was very good. The problem I experienced was that batch processing was utter slow in comparison with Lightroom.

rtemm: Can it produce HDR HEIF output? Without that, my iPhone would still produce nicer, more vivid images than a dedicated camera.

Exactly the iphone (and most other new phones) is fine for instagram/facebook and all other social media needs.

The Silver Nemesis: Rather minor* mechanical glitch, should be easily solved in service.

* = minor if you realize it’s there BEFORE some important photo project…

You have the chance to hand it in right now BEFORE your important photo project, Nikon offers free repair and in/return, also for cameras which are out of warranty. Till so far there aren't any stories of camera's suffering from it. It's not that it mass affected cameras, so indeed it's probable minor in relation to the cameras which are effected.

I have one of the 'affected' models. I've till so far no problems what so ever nor have 2 colleagues of me (one bought in The Netherlands and one bought in Germany) all recently purchased (beginning/end nov/dec)

As a bicycle Dutchy this seems a lot of fun (to capture) and after that drink the pain away with a 'few' beers.

Considering that a picture also tells a thousand words it becomes a pretty long article ;-)

Anyone notices clear differences with AF performance in relation to low contrast subjects/backgrounds?

In reply to:

David Mantripp: Seems all publishers of such software are pushing features that target mass production of commercial photography. Capture One is piling on features for the archetypal wedding pro shooting 10'000 shots/day, Adobe going towards full automation of people shots and fake imagery, with their traditional "bolt it on anywhere" approach to UI extension. The minor players are also largely jumping on the gimmicks train. Sadly, the only exception (so far). DxO, offers noticeably subpar fundamental tools (and a UI "essentiellement contraire aux autres" in true French style) which is a pity given the excellent optic corrections.

I'm probably in a very small minority, but I'd love to see an option on the market which focusses on providing absolute best of class fundamental still photo editing (in all senses of the term) tools, with an equally best of class UI.

This gimmickry just leaves me first overwhelmed, and then completely disinterested...

DxO is utterly slow and not really aimed at as you say photography production.
The only reason to go might be their noise reduction but also here it can produce 'artificial' results.

DxO is better said aimed at a different type of photographer, not really comparable.

You can make your RAW editing as pure (relative) as you want....or not. No one is forcing you to use their so called AI techniques.

Still no movie 'editing' in Adobe Lightroom Classic....?

brownie314: That dynamic range is sick. Makes me wonder if soon it won't make any sense for an amateur to even be interested in dedicated photo equipment

The image quality is excellent but there is more to dedicated camera equipment than image quality alone. Ease of use, specific need (long lenses or wide lenses) Within 3-5 years no support snymore for your phone (with this excellent camera) let alone the non removable battery. Your dedicated camera equipment will be much more years usable.
