This is an easy one. Nikon cannot refuse warrenty within the EU.

If you buy a camera from an EU store. No matter where on the globe the store has purchased their stock, as long as the stock is supplied by Nikon (And not stolen of the back of some truck). They have to honor the warrenty within the EU. Nikons own internal rules, does not change the law.

If the Z7II autofocus is on par with the D850, I'm getting one.

On article Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II coming October 14 (930 comments in total)

For me this is Nikons chance to show that they are able to keep up with the competition. I am expecting auto-focus performance on atleast D850 levels and i would not complain about a functional addition of Eye and Animal AF.

Alex P Scorsch: I have a Canon 5D Mark II that I have used for years without ANY issues. I bought a Sony RX1 years later and it started falling apart relatively quickly. The manual focus doesn't work, a knob popped off and now it only works about 30% of the time. I feel that the Canon is a real pro tool which I can always count on and the Sony which I paid $2,500 for (plus over $300 for the viewfinder) has totally let me down. Evidently the Sony A7 series that I'm thinking of investing in is going to become quickly undependable as a pro tool.

Ohh i did buy Focal and spent many hours on it. It may not be time consuming if everything works as it should, but when it does not, its a different story. You cannot adjust more than +/- 20 points on a Nikon camera, and most of my lenses was in the range of 17-30 points misfocused.

I had a Nikon D850. It was built like a tank and it looked like a tank too. While i loved the look and feel of my camera. There was always something wrong with my focus. It turned out, after spending a lot of time and money on testing equipment. That all of my lenses required massive focus adjustments. So i spent even more time and effort adjusting them, only to fail at some of it.

Eventually i sent all of my gear, all of it to my local Nikon service facility and they adjusted everything to work with the camera. That was fine, but expensive. A further issue was i had to have every single new lens adjusted to that specific camera house. It took great images once adjusted, but it was a massive pain in my ass.

I eventually sold all of my Nikon equipment and bought a Sony A9II. It is not built like a tank, but its pretty solid and with this camera, i have never had any focus issues. Right out of the box i regularly shoot my 135mm lens full open, and get critical focus every time.

On article Nikon interview: "We’re at a transitional stage" (496 comments in total)

The recipe to success for Nikon is "simple".

1. Announce a new 30-40mp ff mirrorless body with two SD-card slots, a stacked Cmos sensor without an AA filter, and with blackout free shooting.

2. Release the 70-200 2.8S

2. Announce the launch date for the new 200-600 S mount lens.

Win.

Nikon glass is proven the best, everyone will buy Nikon again.

In reply to:

Tony Northrup: I'm going way out on a limb, but maybe they're spending extra time tweaking the firmware of the Z cameras to perform well with the 70-200. It's their first telephoto S/Z lens and on-sensor PDAF becomes increasingly more challenging the longer the focal length. We found the Z cameras, even with the latest firmware updates, struggled with our latest-gen F-mount 70-200. Nikon knows they really need the AF to work perfect from day 1.

I think the new Z lenses are super performers. It´s a shame with the delay. But its even more a shame that the camera bodies are so uninteresting. They really need to push out a new ML body capable of shooting action.

Just got shipping notification so I’m rather happy right now.
I’m just not sure if I feel right taking advantage of this mistake. 🤔

To be fair, he was gonna get beheaded no matter what.

On article DPReview TV: Sony a7R IV sneak peek (121 comments in total)

Nice video, i love that you guys talked straight to us users no bs as always. Love the "new" CamerastoreTV crew. You guys really add some spark to all of this. love it.

Secondly, i think this is a very nice camera, but i dont like how sony claims one thing. But then you always have to read the small print to actually get the full story. I.E. "The camera got this awesome new thingamajig , but it only works if you disable this or loose out on that other part"

Nikon reply to this i bet, is gonna be a slammer :)
