anomalous: The most important information that I need when making a monitor purchase is the manufacturer's defective pixel policy. Do they continue to claim that defective pixels do not mean the monitor itself is defective? Then they deserve zero money.

Oh, and I need the dimensions in metric. Only small parts of the world still use imperial units.

Although I agree that the imperial system feels backwards, I'm still feeling that some measures are more intuitive that way, e.g. display size measured in inches (and in fact that's the only imperial unit I saw here).

halfwaythere: Is it just me or this camera looks like a blueprint for an upcoming D650.

My guess is they are keeping the D500 body for a future D760.

No way they are making a D500-like body for the D760 if they want to keep it noob-friendly.

disasterpiece: Same idiotic mode dial... Okay, why change it if it was fine on the D7000 and D600?

No, I mean that but Nikon for some reason refuses to admit that some people may use U1/U2 in conjunction with A and M - at least I did so on the D7000 and liked the fact that I could jump from M to U2 sometimes without taking my eye down from the viewfinder, but now they decided to put an idiotic "Effects" mode right between them. Fine, market the camera for beginners as well (I understand that), but next time try to put the "Effects" somewhere else on the dial. One more thing - for four years of using the D7000, I've NEVER had the dial change accidentally on me - so making it lockable without the option to permanently unlock it (like I think Olympus and Fuji did) is a dumb move.

CallumG: I'm not entirely sure what the target market for this camera is? An enthusiast that wants some bling?! It comes (kit) with a 18-140 which ain't exactly a professional lens. I'd expect a 16-80.

The 16-80 isn't exactly professional either with the variable aperture.

Alex Efimoff: Can I use this CF card with my Canon EOS 20D?

I hope you're joking. In case you're not, CFast and CF are not cross compatible.

So... you're giving $300 to another company for what Apple basically took away from you? Go on, keep praising Apple...

tom1234567: £2000 For a camera with a sensor ! quarter size of FF

its beyond ridiculous you can buy a FF cheaper.
I find it hard to believe anyone would buy this CR-PPY SENSOR CAMERA
are Olympus in Dream Land Or what

You can buy the new Fuji X-T2 AND THE 18-55 LENS FOR £1649 AAND have £350 change from your two grand.
sorry for ranting but I just don't no how Olympus came up with such a RIP OFF PRICE

Tom G

We're way past the point of asking whether or not the camera has a full frame sensor, but we're also past the point where we can expect a serious camera if it has a full frame sensor. Yes, you can buy a D750 for that price, but what if for example you want to actually take advantage of the crop factor and speed? Slap on a 300 or 400 mm on any 4/3 body and you have a wonderful combo for birds and sports in daylight. I'm not a 4/3 fan, but I'd take this any day over a low/mid end FF.

disasterpiece: Seriously, Apple, how hard would've been to keep the F row and place the display thingy above it? I'm not buying this stuff anyway, I'm just baffled.

@jaykumarr I'm a programmer and I use the F row pretty often.

disasterpiece: Save for the display, this looks similar to an iMac - overpriced, compromised hardware.

@nicolaiecostel If he didn't buy the GPU from HP, it's totally expected that it may not fit - branded cases are often very tight. With a little research, you can build yourself a PC from scratch and it will be comparable to a branded one for less money. Of course if you're not comfortable with that, you're practically paying for someone else to do that for you.

@nicolaiecostel Mobile hardware in a desktop computer. Even if they did put a desktop CPU in it (confirmation of which I could not find), it will throttle at continuous full load. Moreover $4200 can buy you much more - probably a six core i7 and the equivalent desktop class GPU. I'd only agree that the display is kind of special.

JJ Rodin: How in the world is this thing cooled !!!!? I assume piping and the case itself is the heat sink, but will it be used to keep coffee warm too ? ;)

Lots of $$, would buy one fabulous desktop that would beat this if the correct GPU chosen & lovely large display.

But impressive nonetheless !!!

I bet it throttles at 50% load or more.

Desktop PC, but with ifs.

there are plenty FF cameras that are better more affordable than this 99

Let's not forget that the D810 is two and a half years old.

I'm curious about the raw buffer depth. It'd be kind of useless if it shoots 15 images and halts.

How does this compare to the Nikon 200-500 f/5.6? At which point in the focal length does the aperture drop to 6.3?

Thoughts: I am a little uncomfortable that they didn't think it was a liberated Japan.

A beautiful piece of work though. Much prettier than any today's Nikon DSLR.

'Pretty' is always a matter of taste. I won't care how ugly you consider the D5 if you hand me one.
