Josh Leavitt: I'd like to see Nikon make an APS-C version of the Df using the D5600's specifications. That's a camera I would buy.

Agree

My main gripe is the unreliable SnapBridge, which needs to be more robust. Nikon should perhaps give the users the ability to develop apps, by making it open source instead. This may make SnapBridge apps more useful than this shy example of a great development.

GPS comes from the "always-on low energy Bluetooth mobile connection" .. as well as time and date. So why drain the battery and increase the price and size and weight for that!

Regardless of the Nikon line-up for the future .. This camera is a small gem, and doesn't deserve this mediocre review that sounds like somebody wrote, while on the train, on the way back home, on a Friday afternoon, before the deadline to submission. I know many people who prefer the D5xxx line to more expensive cameras or Mirrorless cameras. I personally used the SONY A6000, and the IQ compared to even this Nikon, especially low-light, is not there. I still use the D810 as my main camera, but I don't shy from using the reliable D5600, with its connectivity to the web on the go.

HEWCanon: Sorry to differ 110% with Richard. I think size, fully articulated screen, connectivity and full function touch screen is what makes this camera great. It is my second camera to Nikon D810, so I know what I am saying. IQ not as good as D810 of course, but anybody would be stupid to expect otherwise, but still very good. Buttons and dials not as good as D810, but again who would question that. Am I able to use in an easy, portable creative way, I definitely do. Can't use if you use your left eye, but that is almost all DSLR's and cameras with a right hand grip and left sited view finder. If Nikon is reorganising, I would do away with all other cameras and keep this one, next D500, next D810, finally D5 and that's what we all really need from Nikon!! Great camera for size and price. Well done Nikon.

I had the D750 for just a few months and switched to D810 and never looked back .. no comparison between the two .. D810 built and behaves like a tank and is more of a professional body and costs only a bit more with the right rebates and trade-ins .. I would say the D810 is the gear of the year instead ..
