PaulSnowcat: Here is the chance to get 50-100 for everyone who was complaining about the price. It is THE LENS, truly, a masterpiece!

I have to agree with this. Damn it's amazing for portraits.

minh0204: Peak Design is like a video production company that happens to flip cheap bags and gears from China and Vietnam for profit at this point.

If truly the CEO of Peak Design, posting in a dpreview comment section is ballsy af.

Came for the comments and was not disappointed. One of these days all you blowhards will actually leave Adobe products behind like you say you will, but I don't think that day will be today.

Why does EVERYTHING have to be a "game changer" these days? Anything labeled as such almost never is, not even close. This is one of those.

pauliezmm: "To try and match depth of field, Manny shot the A9 photos at F2.8, and the A6500 photos were taken wide open at F1.8." Tommorrow, we'll be driving Ferrari at the same speed as the school bus to see if they can finish the track in the same time.

When you're nit-picking over one stop for depth of field, you're just pandering yourself at that point. Most of your customers will never be able to tell a difference.

Reilly Diefenbach: Jesus Christ what a bunch of whiners. You don't like the subscription, don't subscribe. Simple.

This is basically how this conversation went:

Reilly: If you don't like it, don't buy it.
Dennis: Sounds like something a shareholder would say.
Me: How does that pertain to what he said?
Dennis: I'm entitled to my opinion.

Huh?

@Dennis - "It's rare that "record profits" is good for consumers. Maybe you're a shareholder ?"

LOL....geez, the man gives age-old advice of "if you don't like it, don't buy" and you post three paragraphs and eventually come to this conclusion? Please. I swear the photography online community consists the most whiny and entitled assholes on the internet.

fishy wishy: Think of how much those drones go for and how widespread they're selling... and they only put up $30k to report vulnerability in this billion dollar industry. It's an insult to worldwide intelligence. These are not children who save up cereal tokens to pay for DJI drones you know.

More likely somebody who spots a vulnerability will go for blackmailing DJI for $20m or so instead.

Yeah, because blackmailing DJI would go well... :S

NickyB66: High class, more money....companies 'celebrating' anniversaries, more like 'celebrating' ways to get more money out of people.

They are for-profit businesses, it's the only reason they exist.... /facepalm

Fujica: A nice camera, but at least half year too late.
But if you like mirrors this is it.

You really think 6 months is the make-or-break timeline for this product? Hah!

Daft Punk: This is beast of a camera.

The IQ will no doubt be exceptional. DR from a BSI sensor will make Canon 5DSR owners weep.

The only thing Canon has is Dual Pixel AF and great lenses.

These are very strong assets, but if it is IQ you crave this Nikon is clearly top dog.

Me? Mirrorless is too big a draw for me now. I love my little Olympus EM5 II rig and its persuaded me to go toward Sony for FF IQ. So I am going Sony next.

A DSLR feels like old tech to me now. I don't want to give up a good EVF.

Probably the nicest way anybody has inevitably brought mirrorless into a DSLR discussion.

pfzt: man, the amount of bitter HDR-dog-in-park-flower-macro photographers in this comment section is much too high ;)

Where are your portraits, so that we can see if you can do better?

Oh, great comeback Snapper..... :/

Charles2: Here is an article by a warehouse employee. He describes their successful drive to form a trade union - but now B&H says they will close the unionized warehouse rather than negotiate a contract:

Honestly, if I owned a company, I wouldn't want my employees to form a union either.

MariusM: I'm not promoting B&H or Adorama, but before jumping ship to Adorama (which many here are saying they are going to do), they do not appear to be squeaky clean, either.

Amazon also treats their warehouse employees pretty hard.

Anywhere you go is going to have issues. It's the American way. Pick your poison.

Well then my friend, I've invented the perfect game for you. It's called the...Jump.....To Conclusions Mat! You see, you have this mat, with different conclusions written on it that you could jump to.

Jacques Cornell: Peak Designs gets a whole lot of free press these days. Makes me wonder if it's really free.

How about a review of OpTechUSA products? For decades, they've been making a complete system of modular components that can be configured for almost any purpose, letting you easily swap a camera from, say, a wrist strap to a shoulder strap to a dual sling harness. The stuff is versatile, reliable and affordable.

A lot of the expensive "new" strap products from boutique makers are essentially just repackaging OpTech's concepts at a higher price.

Peak Design articles get clicks. Clicks pay the bills. Don't be so cynical.

"Bezel-less"....ummm, I see a bezel. Might be very thin, but it's still there.

On article Ten things we're hoping for from the Nikon D850 (482 comments in total)
In reply to:

photog4u: By releasing this impressive marketing short announcing the D850 development, Nikon has committed yet another camera tech faux pas. They should have given their mirrorless development a similar marketing video. That the D850 got Hercules Rising and the mirrorless announcement got a half-ass press release, tells me that they still don't get it ... probably an early indication that the Nikon mirrorless system is going to be disappointing compared to the might Sony Alpha series.

@photog4u - You're everything that's wrong with the online photography community. Your passion lies in guessing, comparison, and brand loyalty, not taking photographs. You should reassess why you're even on a photography site.

@sapple - Nikon released an official statement that they were working on a mirrorless system: https://www.dpreview.com/news/9148147105/official-statement-nikon-currently-developing-new-mirrorless-cameras
