Wasn't SUMMARON the name of the evil white wizard in LoTR?

When they make a special edition covered in the red rubber from ping pong paddles them I'm all in!

Its somewhat ironic that the link on the top of the main page for the D3400 review shows someone holding the D3300...

Not eve the DPR staff can tell them apart ;)

Nikon also removed the rear infrared receiver from the D3300 when they made the D3400...

Another "improvement" that I didn't see in the review.

That is a very nice sample gallery. Many thanks to the photographer.

PerL: Most people doesn't get it. It is the easy sharing with a phone that is the point of the "upgrade". It is probably a "must feature" today and Nikon knows it.

The problem is that it is implemented very poorly...

The "app" is limited in function, works slowly, and feels very under-developed. In addition, not putting a touch screen on a camera that is supposed to appeal to people looking for something to pair with their touch screen enabled phone is downright dumb, or cheap, or both.

The D3400 is the laziest product update in recent memory.

The Panasonic Leica 25 1.4 is a heck of a lens.

The images look like but they look very processed to me.

Retzius: Oh yeah. Well the new Nikon D3400 with its 11 point autofocus system (1 of them is even cross-type!) is already shipping!

Beat that Sony!

Not only is Nikon's 11 pt AF unbeatable, the removal of the mic jack and sensor has given the D3400 an ultra-slick exterior and weight has been reduced by an amazing .1 grams.

Sony just can roll with this innovation...

Sorry Sony try again!

Interesting results. IMHO, the Sigma had much better bokeh and the subject had a more 3D appearance.

Not sure why the Nikon primes shows less background blur at the same aperture settings. It almost appears "over-corrected" in some aspects of the lens design as if there is so much emphasis on resolution it has reduced the lens "character".

To be fair you could just re-post the D3300 gallery. Its basically the same camera...

All kidding aside, this is a very curious announcement. I just don't think the market for these cameras is very large. What percentage of the population are extreme athletes or adventure junkies with a desire to film their exploits in 4k HD? Maybe .1% of the population?

More than likely, that .1% already has action camera from GoPro... What percentage of that .1% of the population is also ready to replace the action cameras they have and buy a Nikon KeyMission?

Thats a awful small percentage of the population....

Retzius: is "handmade in sweden" a good thing? I can't think of anything else that is supposed to be good because it is "handmade in sweden"...

I think "hand assembled" might have been more correct. The parts for the camera (and most of the other things everyone mentioned) were not actually made in Sweden, just final assembly (jam and fisk aside). Does that count?
