Debankur Mukherjee: I would prefer to assemble a desktop of almost same specification at half the price.......

As I said, you're not in Apple's target then. Apple is all about closed ecosystem, simplicity and streamlined UI.

If you need custom builds, yeah sure stay in PC world, nobody's gonna stop you from that, Apple either.. Different strokes for different folks and all that.

Thanks to the good resale value of Apple products, instead of upgrading individual components you just resale this iMac Pro for 3k in 3 years, shell out another 2k for whatever specs it’ll have by then and you’re good to go.

Anyway, if you like upgrading your hardware yourself, you’re already out of Apple’s target for this product.

nerd2: -IMac Pro RX Vega 56 clockspeed: 1.25Ghz (22% downclocked from RX vega 56 cards)
-IMac Pro RX Vega 64 clockspeed: 1.35Ghz (13% downclocked from RX vega 64 cards)

Based on current benchmark results, it seems that the baseline version (downclocked vega 56) will be roughly on par with GTX 1070, and optional vega 64 will be roughly on par with GTX 1070 Ti.

And with $5K, one can build 16-core threadripper system with twin 1080 Ti - which will be roughly 3 times more powerful than top-of-the-line iMac Pro.

Yeah and uh, you’ll have no screen, no ram, no drives, no nothing so that’s a pretty crap comparison.

Call me when you do.... Including the 5K panel you won’t be able to. In fact one of the YouTube reviewer tried to make one equivalent Lenovo workstation and arrived to 5.100$.

tonybelding: I have room on my desk for a pair of 24-inch monitors or one 32-inch behemoth. Which option would most of you take, I wonder?

One big and good quality monitor is better than two smaller and of lesser picture quality, imo.

Dual-screens setup aren’t THAT great honestly, unless you’re a video-games streamer, or do music/video production on a daily basis. Even for photo processing I’d pick one big screen over two small ones everyday.

Boissez: 48 Gbps! That's like one whole DVD worth of data transfered every second. Amazing.

One Blu-Ray, DVD’s are not even 10GB.

Exact same situation as me, I’d love to enjoy the D850 but my D810 is already way beyond my level so I guess it’s smarter to invest in better lenses instead of getting a totally overkill camera.

Kudos to Nikon for not putting out a half-hearted design. They really gave it their all with the D850 and it shows brilliantly.

LessMirrored19: AF in video is the biggest advantage in mirrorless over DSLRs ... At least for me ..

That’s because they use both AF types at the same time (phase detection and contrast) with the Dual-Pixel AF.

elee1967: Of course. Who need that thing, when - according to DPR forums - one can simply see 3D effect from a DSLR photo.

You can but only if the lens has less than 5 elements and was made before 1998 ;)

PropaPH: over one thousand comments and it's only been up for two hours.... is that a record?

It's because the comments are back from when they published the very first page of this "First Impression Review". They've been adding pages several times and the comments end up being a whole lot in the end.

Bambi24: Can it shoot 4k?

@Bambi : Maybe people would leave you alone of you showed some of your work instead of spouting whining non-sense on every news. Can’t even be funny when you try either :/

melgross: Sounds like what the new iPhone 8 does for $699, which includes the entire phone and everything else that goes with it that this, for $500, doesn’t have.

Does this also shoot HDR 10 and in the 4K color DCI-P3 standard as the iPhone does?

@mandm

Get you facts straight before trolling attempts, the iPhone 8 can stay up to 30mn at 1m under water, meaning it gets the IP67 certification.

SmilerGrogan: I miss those resolution number charts that compared lines per picture height. It was really useful. Does anyone know why that was discontinued?

I guess because they show the lens performance as much as the sensor's one, and you can't compare different lenses or adapt them easily on all mount. Not to mention the crop factors too between different sensors.

Bambi24: How do you do exposure compensation without a single dial on this thing?

Where is the mode dial?

Do you have to use live view for everything? That could be pretty bad if the sunlight is blasting on the screen and you can't see a thing.

Remembering your D850 comments I was under the impression that you absolutely loved live-view :D

heavymeister: Look at the detail of the blackheads on the model's nose. Nice.

"blur filters" OK thanks Bambi to proving that you know nothing about serious photography. Keep commenting about the D850 LV AF please, at least you're entertaining in that, but don't try serious stuff you might harm yourself.

And I find it very funny that the only feature you crave for in a camera as expensive as this one is the freaking live-view autofocus speed. Stay with your "Rebel" toys or with your smartphone even since you don't want to share your awesome eye with the world but prefer to share your pitiful and insightless comments all over.

"I didn't say anything about the pictures it takes".... hmmmm what about your first comment into this very thread for instance ? You're a depressive contributor to this website, pulling down a perfect camera just because you can't buy it and you chose the Canon wreck train over it. You should try photography you know, you can make 1k a day, when you're talented that is, something I doubt you know apart from the trolling realm.

As said everywhere else people don't spend 3.300 dollars on a camera only to shoot video in AF like teens on smartphone. This is a tool of precision and anyone serious working in the video industry will be better off using manual focus for smooth and silent focus gradations. And then you have power-focus tools that have nothing to do with the LV either.

dmiley: Does anyone besides me think that six news items on the Nikon D850 plus a Nikon D700 retrospective in the last 17 hours is excessive?

Was the same for the a9 so not a problem.
