Sure, if you wait long enough, there's bound to be some sort of technological breakthrough!

On article Benchmark Performance: Nikon D810 review (2004 comments in total)

Wonder as to when we can expect an in-depth review of the D810. Afterall the preview was in July and it is now... October! There was a time that DPReview "shined" in this respect. Just an observation...

Good initiative, Nikon!

Not so difficult to see that it concerns a Great White shark. Photos taken in South African Waters? Nice series!

On article Benchmark Performance: Nikon D810 review (2004 comments in total)

The possibility of a prosumer DX camera being launched is preventing me from deciding to buy the D810. Just wish Nikon would at least inform us in respect of their DX-strategy!
We D300/s owners have been waiting now for such a long time...

A typical Nikon response... Nikon, for heavens sake please review your marketing & PR practises! Communication to your past and present loyal customer base is dismal to say the least!

Both products long overdue...

Nice of you to launch the D610 BUT I'm still awaiting the D400 prosumer DX!

How could the interviewer not ask about the D400 DX that so many of us are waiting for? Lack of interest in respresenting this website's Nikon client base? Am certainly not amused DPReview!

With so many folks eagerly awaiting the D300 / D300s DX upgrade, I am very surprised that the interviewer made no mention of the D400.
