  • It's not a big deal, as long as you know in your own mind how it will affect your pictures, but just so you'll know: you have the idea of what's "true" backwards. Focal length is a property of the ...
  • Yeah, that was my first thought, too—mismatch between budget and expectation. Obviously, I don't know the details and don't at all want to seem like I'm casting aspersions on the OP. Nobody is ...
  • Or maybe, just maybe, it's about multiple things. Small is one of the things that mirrorless can be about, but not the only thing. Same for "advancement of technology". In the case of the Z system ...
  • Replied in seconded
    Agreed. The GX85 is a fantastic all-around camera, being sold at ridiculously low prices right now. I used one for about 3 months and was highly impressed with it. Obviously, Panasonic got stuck ...
  • Retailers can certainly set a policy to never open a box, and sell it at a discount if they ever do. But a specific retailer's policy is not a universal rule. There are quite a few other camera ...
  • Replied in what "new" means
    This may be your definition of brand new, but it's certainly not the definition according to U.S. commercial law, or the commercial laws of most other countries. It's also not my definition of ...
  • Listen, guys, I know whereof I speak — 30 years in and around the camera business, including a decade competing directly against the supposedly clueless Canon. One lackluster camera is just not a...

  • It's been clear from the beginning that Canon brought the EOS R to market with a shorter-than-ideal development cycle.

    I'm sure Canon is 100% aware of this, but made a business decision that it...

  • I doubt I missed anything — you and I just have different definitions of seamless. As I said, systems like "connect from your phone, find your image, download, process ..." work perfectly well for ...
  • You seem to be mixing up your terms, and in any case, they are incorrect. Apple has much higher profit margins than any camera company, including Nikon. Apple's operating profit margin is around ...
  • No camera company has developed a good solution to the instant connectivity hurdle, for the non-enthusiast customer that you're describing. Part of my work life brings me into extended contact ...
  • Lance, NR is misquoting DPreview. You can read the original right here on the front page. Nikon's statement referred to full frame market share and probably to combined DSLR and mirrorless (that ...
  • Thanks, it looks like they go to some length to eliminate some of the obvious variables. That's definitely good. That said, I just noticed that the comparison you linked to was shot on the ...
  • Does The Digital Picture describe its methodology anywhere? At the very least, I'd want to know whether I'm looking at JPEGs shot at the camera's default settings for sharpening and correction (not ...
  • I've done a lot of searching along similar lines—sounds like you and I have quite similar goals/preferences. Given all your parameters, a Sony a6500 is probably your only real option. If you're ...
  • For better or worse, the major camera brands, definitely including Nikon, don't give a lot of weight to the pricing of third-party lenses. They believe that their brands can command a certain ...
  • I took a look at your website, and your salmon pictures are wonderful, Tom. Both beautiful and interesting from a biological/scientific point of view. Great stuff! My mother grew up in Anacortes, ...
  • Haven't thought about the RS in quite a awhile. What a weird and wonderful beast that was. For reasons too boring to explain, I had possession of one for a couple of years, even though I don't ...
  • Replied in no specifics yet
    Nikon has given no specifics on delivery date, and I've heard nothing from some friends in high places. I think it's several months away at the very least. That said, I think it will be a fairly ...
  • I agree with you and Clayton1985 that the chances are very high the 14-30 S-Line lens will be excellent (and I also agree that it better be, given Nikon's claims about the Z mount). With that said, ...
