Nick Brundle - Photography: Buy a Nikon D750 for almost the same price and you've got just about the best all round camera for the same money

Double the price...

Is the lens dirty?

Or.. is it supposed to look blurry, low contrast, and riddled with veiling flare?

I bought a Soviet era K-mount lens that was this bad but it was $20...

The reds here look better than what I saw with the M5 gallery i.e. they don't make my eyes bleed. I know the sensor is likely the same but the rendering looks tweaked for the better.

That's a nice camera and everything but just wait until Nikon comes out with the D820 with Snapbridge! Beat that Fuji!

The wireless transmitter must have been designed by the guy who's last project was an 80's technology car phone.

they should just make these lenses a constant f/5.6

On article Nikon D5600 review: making connectivity a snap? (342 comments in total)

Did they address the tendency for the 4800dx autofocus module to backfocus in artificial light? If not, then its a non-starter of a camera for me. I had observed this well documented phenomena in all camera models using that autofocus module. In the 7000 series it can be addressed with the AF fine tune but since they are unwilling to put this feature in the 5000 series bodies it becomes a fatal flaw.

I see that the special edition Nikon DL is there too in the exclusive invisible finish.

Retzius: So other than build quality and EVF it seems to be behind the competition in almost every parameter.

There are only 3 lenses. The least expensive, a variable aperture 24-90 is $5000.

So the minimum entry cost into the system is at least $12000; and that is to be behind the competition in all areas except build quality and EVF.

On article Fujifilm XF 23mm F2 R WR sample gallery (284 comments in total)

Looks like a very nice lens. My only issue is that it has a distinct "wide angle" feel. I don't think it would serve as a good 35mm "equivalent due to the way it renders like a wide angle lens (which it is). This is an issue I have with most cameras with a smaller sensor size. The lenses are often great but can't really serve as the "equivalents" they are advertised as.

Looks great. Did AF fine tune finally make its way to the rebel line?

I guess they had to get the cat out of the bag before CP+ show otherwise every question would be about the due date for the DL cameras. Im guessing they believe this will allow the show to focus on what they will release rather than what may never come.

Fuji is like the anti-Nikon; they actually seem to care about the customer's opinion and don't exude antagonistic paternalism.
