Nikon had to cancel their DL line, because they were busy holding meetings, trying to decide what shade of gray to use on these cameras. :-)

Nikon can't even throw a decent Anniversary Party. (sigh)

A "gunmetal gray" finish and a little logo don't strike me as being sufficiently celebratory for 100 years in business.

Judging by results, Nikon's Chief of Strategy position is currently vacant. :-)

That reminds me of the BBC comedy "Keeping Up Appearances". A snooty women wanted here last name to be pronounced Bouquet, but the actual spelling of the name was Bucket.

justmeMN: Apparently, Nikon won't be hiring Thom Hogan as Chief of Strategy any time soon. :-)

(Thom isn't alone. If memory serves, Nikon execs declined to be interviewed by DPR at CP+.)

@mandophoto: Nikon DL never shipped, Nikon KeyMission is a sales flop, Nikon 1 is dormant-to-dead with no mirrorless replacement in sight, Nikon lost DSLR market share in Japan, and maybe in other regions. To be "upbeat and positive" would be to deny reality.

LFPCPH: I'm sorry Fuji - But I cannot allow myself to be seen with a camera in those colours.

It's available in "Smokey White", which doesn't strike me as being objectionable.

For street photography, Flamingo Pink is totally unintimidating to prospective photo subjects. :-)

In reply to:

CaPi: Did u guys use the optional viewfinder. What did you think? :)

At the suggested retail price, the M6 plus optional EVF costs more than the M5 with built-in EVF.

(On the Canon USA web site the optional EVF goes for $249.99.)

So, they have a money-losing camera division, with a small market share, in a shrinking camera market. That doesn't sound like a recipe for a successful turnaround.

I used to scuba dive, though a hole cut in thick lake ice, at night, in the middle of a Minnesota winter. That's way more radical than cold-weather surfing in Maine. :-)

Hmm. FAA drone rules say "Must keep the aircraft in sight (visual line-of-sight)". You can't do that when you are sitting at home behind your computer.

Gawd, that white wolf is beautiful. With his front paws crossed, he is clearly in "totally relaxed mode". I suppose the zoo has a cruel "no hugging the wolves" policy. :-)

Simon Fung: Poor image quality, comparing with the Pantex KP gallery, Canon you should be shame, show your sincerity

@avicenanw: The Pentax brand name is still around, but that brand name is now on its third owner.

In reply to:

john Clinch: It is in brief a silly article on DPReview. It would make sense in many places but not here. DPReview have consistently pedaled the message that more is better in every area including resolution. Print size has never ever been mentioned, unlike Imaging Resource which always comments on this. I have always felt that print size wasn't mentioned because resolution passed a point that it is so good that is irrelevant

But suddenly at this point 50MP is enough. Why 50MP not 24Mp or 200Mp it just feels arbitrary. Also we are extrapolating from first generation products. The current state of Medium format sensors lags behind the current 35mm sensors. But what of the future. There seems no place for medium format sensors to move forward.

There are some people who really need bill board size prints and its hard to imagine that, in the long run, medium format won't be the way to do it

Finally take a picture with a street light in it, its not low dynamic range is it

"But what of the future."

Canon's has announced that they are developing a 120MP DSLR.
