Mateus1: "X-E3 looks like a solid X-E2 replacement"
Sorry, I do not see it, it's rather a weak replacement after X-E2 anouncement in 2013 - almost 5 years ago! We are almost in 2018 and you still get from Fuji fixed LCD (Lol!), same smalish EVF with x0.62 magnification, same small and narrow eyepiece - a true "point-and-shot" style that does not protect your eye from back/side lighting, you got ditched 5 fn buttons incliding D-pad that are important for fast and direct access to features, you got ditched nice bounced pop-up flash (who will mounting every time this tiny external flash? it's useless), and you got touched LCD as base navigation that will slow shooting. and your nose will always be changing the settings. Joystick is a very nice feature but without D-Pad's buttons it does not help that much. It's clear Fuji changed target group with X-E3 and had not listened to X-E1/2 users voice who wanted different improvements. Same was with X30 that killed nice X-20 line. X-E3 kills X-E line.

Raist3D the X-T20 doesn't have a larger viewfinder...its the same 0.62x magnification as the X-E3. Also I don't like the built-in flash on my X-E2. It seems incredibly fragile and not up to the build quality of other parts of the camera (with the exception of the rear control dial which is awful too...loose and plasticky) I've hardly ever used it.

GabrielZ: Ugh! It doesn't have a larger screen! The X-E3s screen is 3" like the previous X-E2/X-E2S. Its also not smaller than the X-T20 either. That camera is taller due to the EVF/flash hump, but the X-E3 is wider and a little deeper.

Fair enough.

On article Rock Solid: Canon 1D X Mark II Review (453 comments in total)

This flagship Pro camera has a 61 point AF module, 41 of which are cross-type. The (now quite ancient) 7D Mark II has a 65 point AF module, all of which are cross-type! Why didn't canon use an improved version of that module (enlarged, faster or what ever...) for the EOS-1D X Mark II instead? I wonder if that means the 7D Mark III (rumored to be released next year) will retain an improved version of its predecessors AF module, or ditch it for this one?

Out of the 20 questions nobody asked about LV-AF. If somebody did, it was probably removed from the the transcript. Because Nikon doesn't have a positive answer to that, due to it likely being the same as their other DSLRs...terrible!

In reply to:

GabrielZ: So all those rumors about a significantly improved SnapBridge were likely bogus too...Nikon want you to purchase the ridiculously expensive (for what it is) and messy WT-7A instead and no improvements with Automated AF Fine Tune either. Its still a brick too, no lighter than its predecessor, despite rumors to the contrary...disappointment mounting, sorry. DSLRs really are becoming dinosaurs.

XXTwnz because from what I've read here so far, the D850s WiFi implementation (and all other Nikon cameras too I gather) is restricted in what it can do and is only available via the subpar (I used an expletive, but you're not allowed to write those here on DPReview) SnapBridge app anyway.

DongaMogudu: One Camera to rule them all.

Except when it comes to LV-AF and video that is, a smartphone does both better! But as a stills camera it looks like its going to be class leading. I was seriously considering purchasing this camera if it could do both stills and video well, as I need both. But it seems to be same old Nikon when it comes to the latter. So I can't justify the purchase price of this camera, just for stills. As I would be using my own money...I'm not rich!

Martin Datzinger: Many of my personal boxes ticked, congratulations! However, no on-sensor PDAF is a dealbreaker for me. I don't care about video AF, but if LV AF stays as useless as it is on my D810 (and before that the D600 and D7000), I won't upgrade. The nice tilting screen makes this omission only harder to tolerate, as it is an incentive to shoot at other perspectives than eye-level. Undoubtedly a great camera, just not an upgrade option for me.

A deal-breaker for me too. That was actually the single feature I was hoping the D850 would get more than anything else (I commented here enough about it! Lol) Even with this otherwise excellent new camera, its going to be same-old Nikon when it comes to LV-AF and video...the worst in the industry! :-(

DingieM: How long until Nikon recalls this one? D600, D610, D750...

The D850 is part of Nikon's pro-line of cameras. So recalls unlikely I'd say.

Pixel binning, noticeable rolling shutter, no proper log gamma options, focus peaking and EIS only at 1080p and no on-sensor PDAF...another disappointing video performance by a Nikon DSLR compared to the competition. But as a stills camera it'll probably be class leading. Still I was hoping Nikon would finally really up their game when it came to video.

But is LV-AF any good now? No on-sensor PDAF so probably not. It would of been nice if it was capable of 10bit HDR video too. Other than those things, a solid spec overall.

"leading photographic equipment company" providing components? Probably Sony or Panasonic.

Interesting artistic designs...they look like weird little creatures or Aliens. And take quite atmospheric photos too...nice!

It doesn't offer anything that stands out from the crowd. Still its nice to see Nokia back.

One of the most disappointing new camera releases in years! Canon's arrogance just beggars belief!

What ever happens, I'm glad the Kaufmann family will remain the majority shareholder and in control of Leica Camera.

"Canon has issued a statement letting hopeful shoppers know that demand for the EOS 6D Mark ll kit with the Canon EF 24-70mm F4L IS USM lens has exceeded expectations"...why? Such a disappointing camera!

I really like the flowing organic shape of the viewfinder housing! This is Nikon's most attractive looking camera in a while. Hope the specification is as good as its looks.

Michiel953: Amazing how often the 58/1.4G is used for show purposes. Wonder why.

But this is one amazingly attractive camera. All that high res ff tech crammed into a D500 sized pro body? Amazing. Wonder what it weighs. 900 grs?

Yes, its a lovely looking thing!
