On article Real-world test: Nikon D750 at the Museum of Flight (278 comments in total)

helltormentor: @ Barney

Did the internal reflection found on the D750 ever appear in your shots of back lit scenes?

To reproduce, just a grab an LED flashlight and mount the 50 or 85 1.8g on the camera. Then, put camera in live view pointing towards LED light and pan camera slowly up and down which should create a black horizontal band with flare from light source. I was not able to reproduce with the 24-120 F4 or 70-200 2.8 VR and will not be an issue for my style of shooting. Great camera otherwise !!!!

I'm passing on this one (No issues with my D800) and I'm curious to see what they'll announce in Photokina.

On article Nikon to offer D600 replacements if 'spots' continue (175 comments in total)

Nikon took care of my D600 issues with a full refund last summer - They should have done this in the 1st place.

hiro_pro: i understand the lens might be lighter but at that price and as an amateur who cant afford a ton of lens i think i need to look at the tamron or sigma 70-200 f/2.8 VR-OS-VC-IS, etc... I have the old sigma 70-200 f2.8 on my d7000 and that sucker is plenty sharp by the time you stop it down to f/4. i cant wait to see some test shots so we can compare the $1,300 70-200 offerings.

all-tell me i'm missing something beside weight. otherwise i cant believe this lens offers much.

I own the Siggy 70-200 2.8 OS DG HSM and use it on my D600..I have very sharp copy, anad quite honestly I dont think you are missing much with the F4 version.

Greg Gebhardt: $240 for a tripod collar!?!?!?

3rd party people will be selling for $50 and cleaning up!

I do want the lens, five stop VR mean the 70-200 2.8 will be staying at home!

This lens is not to replace the 70-200 f2.8 it is just a lighter tool to add to the collection and a long awaited one!

+1 they dont even include the collar..thats BS..I own the Siggy 70-200 2.8 OS DG HSM on D600 and couldnt be happier...Nkon wont get my money on this lens

techmine: Poor man's equivalent of legendary Nikkor 70-200 f2.8?

Yes - but the Siggy 70-200 2.8 OS DG HSM is also a very nice alternative.

WhaleShark: dpreview has done a disservice to readers by not clearly pointing out that the D600 is a total fail as a serious video tool - even though Nikon is trying to sell it as one.

Why?
1) Audio gain (& headphone level) cannot be adjusted while shooting (source: Nikon USA website)
2) Aperture (and hence exposure) cannot be adjusted while shooting (source: the preview above)
3) As if that wasn't enough, the Nikon website also says that the HDMI output 'may' not have the same pixel dimensions as those that you chose -- in other words, the 1080x1920 output will be what? All sorts of post-production stupidity might result from this.

I would have loved to have listened to the stream of expletives that must have been flowing from the lips of the poor suckers who had to shoot Nikon's doc-style promo videos with these. No wonder so many shots look wooden and set up.

What could have been a nice stills and video camera is actually just a nice stills camera with useless video buttons on it.

make a great point here!!!

In reply to:

Griffo59: This good news and bad news.

Good news is that it's a pretty good deal for a FF body.

Bad news is, there will be no more high-end DX bodies. No D400 :(

Why does everyone assume that they'll be no more DX bodies?

losackmd1: i own D300s i want the D 18-300
i am told i cant use this wide range lens on an FX camera
or can i
i sold one D300 because i used it extensively in INDIA
i want the upgrade to this camera.
WHY did they make a D18-300 lens if they are not making new DX cameras

Where did you hear they arent going to make anymore DX cameras? Im sure there's at least one or two DX cameras in Nikon lineup needing upgrading (D300 and D7000)

As far as entry DSLR yes, probably will sell like hotcakes.. But IMHO you can save $200 or so and buy a refurb D5100..I have the D5100 and it's very nice
