amblepath: The difference between 4/3 and apsc seems way over exaggerated in this article. Between both of them and full frame yes. Is there a difference, yes a small one but the article makes it sound like if light levels drop 4/3 becomes so much inferior when in reality it is only a very little bit inferior.

I agree that the the lens support for APS-C is lacking, from Nikon, anyway. Though there are lots of FX choices.
But Fuji offers decent (but expensive) lenses for APS-C and IQ results are not far off FF in many cases.

Same between APS-C and FF, at least for my purposes.

Always like Fuji bodies, but the lenses are too expensive.

I like my D7200 and feel no need to go FF. But as suggested above, Nikon hasn't done enough with DX lenses. No one makes an APS-C UWA prime for example. I want a 10mm 2.8. (yes, Samyang, but with bulk and no AF or filter.)

Sony showed Nikon how to approach FF mirrorless; now I wish Nikon would use the A6000 series for DX inspiration, i.e., SMALLER, lighter APS-C. But they are too conservative.

As a minimalist traveler, I'm thinking of converting to the A6400. (Nice compact Samyang 12mm f2.)

ugh, the prices. As someone who doesn't make a living from photography, it's getting more and more difficult to justify high quality equipment.

I'd be all over this for non-flash interior shots, if I owned a FF body that is.

Nice view. Moscow, Zaryadye Park. Though a little sunlight on the piano player would have been even better.

LiangMing: So this lens has f2.8 at 17mm, and f4 at 35 mm? Is there major use for f2.8 at 17 mm? What if Tamron releases a cheaper version, the 17-35 f4, for $400?

I will sell my current Canon 16-35 f2.8 II immediately.

Non-flash interior shots, my friend.

Does the A6300 have face or eye detect AF function? Video fails to mention this.

Crypt Keeper: Obscene price for APSC quality.

Yeah, Fuji lenses are too much $$, and this keeps me from switching to Fuji, but your comment implying that APS C quality is way off FF, is just not true.

If you print beyond 20x24, maybe so. Otherwise APS-C is fine. Get real.

I wish Nikon would use DX for a very compact mirrorless system.
As a minimalist traveler, I'm discouraged by the continuing push to FF. APS-C is adequate.
Sure, I'm attracted to Fuji, but the lenses are v expensive.

Sardonic G: Why?

Yes, why? Without "warp-drive" space projects are a waste of resources unless orbiting weapons are the goal, which is a barbaric pursuit.

The cost for too little practical gain is unreasonable. If you must explore dead rocky satellites, form a cooperative international public-private agency. But man is not evolved enough for this much cooperation.

So much skepticism below. Russians are the most skeptical people I've ever met, but after most of a century of deceptive governments, It's understandable.

Internet manipulation is now successfully turning Americans into skeptics.
Russia and others dilute the influence of the internet through endless fraudulent posts. Ironically, the skeptics below are simply choosing to believe one version over another. Thus, the manipulators have succeeded.

Congrats to Phil.
I think this site is a model of simplicity and use considering all the information here. It is better, more user friendly, than any other major site. It's a pleasure to use.
(I like the black background.)

How many employees does DPR have now and why did it move to Seattle?

Nikon should.... Nikon always "should" do something.

But really, Nikon should use DX to create a super compact mirrorless system.
You know, (Samsung size not Sigma size) 50-150 2.8 equivalent to a FF 70-200, etc. And a DX UWA prime, 10mm 2.8.
As a minimalist traveler, I'm discouraged by the push to FF.
(Yes Fuji, but their lenses are v expensive.)

Always attracted to Fuji cameras; always put off by the price of the lenses.
BTW, Nikon, APS-C is viable (but smaller/lighter).
