The RP Users Guide (page 207) says that the RP will do 4.0 shots per second when set to Servo AF and High Speed Continuous. The review says it only does 2.5. Which is right?

marc petzold: To all Price Point Moaners - into Germany, this Situation is as the following:
Nikon Z6 Body today (could change anytime) 1426 EUR
Nikon Z5 Body today 1247 EUR

Well, it's just not a full 200 EUR less, but you Guys get the Point. Into Comparsion, Canon EOS R(I)P Body: 1299 EUR, and 3 others, which are lower Price Point (starting from 997 EUR, but very limited Stock, and only ONE (1) into Stock for this Price.

Seriously, for 1K, the old A7 II wins hands-down vs. the RP, anytime. IBIS, and better DR, and image Quality. It was originally a 1700 bucks DSLM, whileas the RP was designed as a beginners FF DSLR from the Pike up.

Back 2 Topic - the Z5 does have very good IQ, excellent build Quality, the same Weathersealing, to the Standards of Z6/Z7 according to Nikon, and a great EVF, also IBIS. Nikon needs to release more cheap normal, and S-Series Lenses. 3rd Party Support is currently lacking - Nikon should open the Z-Mount Specs.

Good Light.

In the US the Z5 is $1396 and the RP is $999. B&H body-only prices. The Z5 sounds like it is a little bit better overall, but it also costs 40% more. The price may come down in the future, but that is the difference now.

Alastair Norcross: The Pro-100 has 8 cartridges. This says the Pro-200 " features a new eight-color dye ink system, an increase in two cartridges from the PRO-100". So, does that mean that it actually has 10 cartridges but 8 colors?

The spec sheet shows the exact same number of cartridges containing the same colors, at least by name: Y,C,PC,M,PM,GY,LGY,BK

tm8: About time they cited him. He's been acting like the rules don't apply to him because he's a published photographer, flying illegally for years. His sense of entitlement always bothered me.

@Biggs23 I agree. I am from Vermont and could carry almost everywhere if I wanted to. I was really pointing out the differences in the way people treat the 1st and 2nd Amendments.

Does that blanket "Do anything you want as long as you are going after a story" allow him to carry an AR-15 around the streets of NY while looking for a story? Arresting him for that would then be violating two Constitutional amendments, wouldn't it?

PhotoKhan: It didn't take me more than to check 6 of the "most popular" comments on this section to find the first one about LR sluggishness and how Capture One is the remedy for such affliction.

I run LR on a Win10-64, i7-6700K, 32GB RAM, GTX-1060/6MB and it runs like butter.

A few days ago, I downloaded and installed Capture One 11 just to see what all the fuss was about and, to my surprise, immediately noticed very slow performance, the software routinely taking 2 or 3 seconds to update the image after a simple adjustment was dialed in.

Something really fishy is going on...

My Shift-F takes under a half-second going either way. Not significant to me. In Develop, switching from image to image is also very quick UNLESS I have done major rework on it involving hundreds of spot removals. Then it might take a second or two.

I have a Win10 i7-3770 that I bought in 2012. My "F-test" is **almost** instantaneous going to full-screen, and absolutely instantaneous coming back. Like Photokhan, I rarely do that as I have a multi-monitor setup. I have lots of complaints about Lightroom, but performance has never been one of them, except for spot-healing. Photoshop does that so much better anyway that I only use the spot tool for small, simple operations. I use ~30MB raws from a 24MP camera, so not the worst case scenario.

Cool. I got 9 out ten right! Of course, if retouching is done right, I don't think most people can tell from a web image. I was a little disappointed that they didn't show me the one I missed so I could figure out where I went wrong.

Eric Calabros: Not sure if its an alarming sign that I need to buy a new phone with calibrated display, or something is really wrong with reds in these images.

The reds look fine on my calibrated monitor and the LR histogram shows no signs of blowing out the reds on either of the red flower pics. I checked both the raws and the jpgs. Nothing even close.
