On article Throwback Thursday: the Nikon D700 (113 comments in total)
In reply to:

camerosity: Actually a 92% viewfinder. This is the biggest negative for an otherwise amazing camera. One that I still own to this day, though haven't used in nearly a year (Thanksgiving 2016 was the last shoot I did with my D700).

The entire D700 frame is 4256 x 2832 pixels. The viewable area is approximately 4027 x 2670 pixels based on my somewhat rough observation. Therefore, as far as area goes, what is in the viewfinder is actually about 89.2% of the entire frame, and at least on my D700, it is not centered, a bit more is left out on top and on the left side of the frame

lacroix75: With many cameras that I've bought and sold, this is the only camera that I wish I still have...

Still have mine. Seems silly to sell it for only around $700.00 at this point.

dansclic: Many say this body is the last Nikon to have so accurate colors....

Have you tried the Df? It produces outstanding color, better than any other Nikon body I've used yet.

snapa: Some people simply have more money than sense. If you have nothing better to do with $400k then to spend it on an almost useless camera, you have more money than you deserve to have. Will the person who bought it actually use the camera, or just put it on a shelf to admire it? Either way, what a complete waste of money.

There is this thing called appreciation. This is an investment, nothing more. 10 years from now it will be worth considerably more now that the world knows about it.

On article Nikon offers free battery exchange for D500 owners (104 comments in total)

It would be nice if they would offer recalls on all EN-EL15 batteries that qualify, not just for D500 owners. I have quite a few that are like this but I'm just a D810 owner.

In reply to:

2eyesee: How about a poll? Which camera would you like to see DPR review first?

And another: How many hours sleep are DPR staff allowed each night until all three cameras are reviewed?

Definitely a built in EVF would push me to buying the DL 18-50 right away. But again, like the failed V3, the viewfinder being an add on, very fragile item, make me pause. The V1 was the genesis of what could have been a brilliant line of cameras. But they chickened out and made the V2, which was boring, and the V3, which was simply bizarre (Micro SD cards? wtf?!). Sorry Nikon, your marketing department is still rather confused. You can't make a premium compact with a superb N lens, and leave the viewfinder off. Pros don't shoot with the camera held out in front of them. Even the tiny Rollei 35 has a viewfinder on it, for chrissakes!

On article Nikon's New D5 and D500 Push the Boundaries of DSLR (719 comments in total)

Glad to see Nikon release both of these cameras. The D500 looks very exciting and may bring some FX shooters back to DX, as the D500 seems to eclipse the D750 in many areas for just $150 more.

Good artists copy, great artists steal. This has always and will always be true...

well they certainly are setting their sights on Panasonic as this one is a dead ringer for one.

On article Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review (1328 comments in total)

Canon bias on dpreview? Never, right? Even though the D750 was announced before the 7D Mark II, the Canon gets a review posted before the Nikon...

I'd love to get one of these, they are super sexy. But looks like this is for Japanese consumers only, no English option... Price is reasonable too, kit with lens is $~2750.00

On article Olympus OM-D E-M5 rumored to be out of production (210 comments in total)
In reply to:

String: Outdated, obsolete, discontinued, whatever it is I will say that the E-M5 is the only digital camera that I don't think I'll ever sell. It's just too damn good looking and handling; a true modern classic. Its the one that made photography fun again (for me). I will eventually replace it (E-M1 successor?) but the E-M5 will always be mine.

I cant say that about any other digital camera I've owned.

I feel the same way about the Nikon Df too. It's a cut above any other digital SLR I've ever owned.

camerosity: The photo of the North Fork Falls is not in Bellevue, it's actually in Newcastle...

yeah you probably drove up from I-90 through Lakemont (in Bellevue). The North Fork Falls are in Newcastle City Limits and part of the old mining town area. And you're right, I don't know why Newcastle doesn't post a sign to tell drivers they are entering Newcastle. Anyway, it's a great trail!

You forgot the Nikon Coolpix A. Typical dpreview

This is awesome. As a Photoshop CS6 user, their Camera Raw plugin just gets better and better. Used to be that Nikon Capture NX2 did a better job with Nikon's closed source .NEF files. But recently I compared CS6 Camera Raw to NX2 and I preferred Camera Raw overall. Nice that they decided to throw a bone to all of us CS6 users for the Nikon D810 too. Though I currently have the D800 I may buy a D810 in a couple of years.

I can't wait until the Museum of Flight raises the necessary funds to build a building over all the planes in the airpark. Apparently they are planning a roof first, then walls later. The original (and very first) Boeing 727-100 is going to be a part of the Airliner Gallery. Too bad the first Boeing jet, the 367-80, was donated to the Smithsonian. I saw it in person in 1994 at Boeing Field, fresh from the paint shop, and have slides of it. At that Flight Fest, we could walk right up to the 367-80 and touch it, walk under it (not easy) and see it from all angles. It was wonderful. The Stratoliner (Clipper Flying Cloud) was there too, unrestored. Amazing.
