Kiwisnap: Amazing achievement. I read that it landed about 600km from the Rover - I thought that was a shame, as it would have been really clever to have had them meet up and photograph each other!

Eric youve always been annoying, blocked you already on NR..

zkz5: Why does autofocus reduce the maximum possible brightness of a lens mount? For example, why could manual focus F-mount lenses be made to f/1.2, but autocus only f/1.4?

Franz, I dont understand.. how would stopping down a lens relieve the lens mount of any load?..

MoodyRuby: really? you're suggesting a poor rebel for 600$?????
the D5500, D3500 are a lot better than this box of nothing. how can anyone suggest a rebel at any price?... even the D5300 is better than the overpriced 77D..

ok guys im sorry but the new rebel does have DPAF. still not worth it, lame camera for photos, and to be honest a pretty lame camera for video as well. all it has is good video AF..

No people.. rebel cameras DO NOT have DPAF... even the EOS R doesnt have as good DPAF as the 80D. rebel cameras are really bad for video.

Oleg Ivanovskiy: Looks like a usual slums to me.
And of course these were photographers, who painted all the walls, broke the windows and puked on the sidewalks.

Lol I was wondering about that

BobT3218: Who would have thought Canons had so much plastic ;)

lol, actually canon cameras are built like tanks, even the D850 is covered in plastic

MoodyRuby: I didnt know 1000 of anything means critically endangered.. In my country there are only 300 mountain gazelles and no one cares, so maybe those gazelles are extremely endangered as well?

You're right, that's exactly what im planning to do :).

Thank you. I work in a nature reserve and even the workers believe cows are "good for nature" because their feces "fertilize" the soil.. it is. but they eat all the grass with all the very important flowers, insects.. they just demolish the balance of the ecosystem here. its such a heartache to watch, especially since only very few people actually said anything about this..

+Antonsrkn

that information isnt accurate. it doesnt matter that there are 2500 left when they are locked in in fenced cattle areas. this is the situation in my country which hunting is prohibited in, so imagine the situation in other "middle eastern" countries, which hunting is allowed in.. those gazelles are slaughtered. in my country at least they can live, but they have nothing to eat because of FENCES are everywhere, and in the fenced areas of course cows herd and eat all the grass to the ground. Officially the government says nothing about this, they claim the gazelles numbers are going down due to higher number of predators, but the gov kills wolves (only 100 in the country) because they hunt cattle.. lol..

djohnfot: Wonderful articles like this are one of the main reason why DPREVIEW is such a valuable resource. It's not terribly in depth but it does encourage me to look elsewhere to fill in the details.

It's good to see that the authorities are attempting to protect these precious apes. I hope their anti-poaching practices are successful, for it is this loathsome activity that is the gorillas greatest danger.

LOL.

if no one got it, ill explain. i was a bit cynical. yes i live in a corrupt country where there are only a few rare mountain gazelles left and yes no one cares, the government lets 20,000 cows in the golan heights alone to roam free for meat purposes, they destroy the land, break trees, kill new trees so forests cant regrow, and EAT ALL THE GRASS so gazelles have nothing left. Its amazing to me that NO ONE speaks about this in my country or in the world, no one cares. Cows should not be allowed in nature or at least in forests, they destroy everything they touch. cows belong in their natural habitat, which isnt israel.

MoodyRuby: Im going to wait until nikon refines this line. They pretty much promised a mirrorless D850, and its not even close.

Like i mentioned before, TOP OF THE LINE AUTOFOCUS. this is the most important thing for me.

Also why isnt it reasonable to expect blackout free 45mp sensor? if the a9 can do it at 20 fps why cant a MILC with 45mp do it at 9?
And also, i said its a possibility :). it will probably happen as technology advances.

YES. I DO. VERY MUCH!. Doesnt that sound pretty amazing? a Mirrorless camera with DSLR body. why do i want that?

1. EVF
2. Possibility for blackout-less silent shutter
3. Possibly better video AF?
4. Would be physically thinner and also lighter than 1kg (D850+grip = 1.5kg which is very heavy for me to Hold firmly for 5-8 hours)
5. IBIS (Probably will never happen in a Nikon DSLR.)

It means pretty much what it says, lol.
TRUE 9 fps, top of the line AF, Perfect ergonomics and build (the D850 is still small for my hands, and they arent that big)

And i would expect less viewfinder lag from a "mirrorless D850" as they called it. the D850 is amazing for wildlife/sports. the Z7 has an amazing sensor, but doesn't come close to the D850 (in terms of performance, sensors are identical from what ive seen online)

David Hull: Is there a reason that the EOS R is not offered as a comparison selection? I thought that DPR had measurement data on the R.

I assume because it has the same sensor as the 5d mark iv
