Hey DPR I really want to know why you have put "record setting" in the title of this article. What record has it set? The company themselves seem to make no reference to records so why have you added it?

technotic: So is it a record?

I think they are claiming it is the first lens with a 17 blade aperture not that it had the most blades?

the real thing aesthetically all could learn from is how to see.,. how to slow down and see a painting a poem a photo or music .. a moment

No, yes (for points) and no :-).

In the Raw: Imagine this...a wide print, maybe 24" by 10" high. It's a white empty room, with a small round table in the middle, on it is a half empty wine bottle with a red rose in it. Now put John Lennon on the extreme right, with his nose almost touching the edge of the frame, looking out with a pensive expression. Or an excited one.

Would that be a bad composition?

John Lennon was one of the most successful song writers of all time so I think you are in a very small minority.

I hope you can take something away from mine.

My advice to you is:
* Slow down.
* Cultivate a posting pattern that is less annoying.
* Use capital letters to signal the start of a sentence.
* Use periods to end a sentence and not an occasional "...".

This will really help people read and digest the points you are trying to make.

ParappaTheSnappa: Dp review has been posting a lot of videos like this, and I've noticed everyone in the comment sections is a douche.

A bunch of amateur photo dongs who think their snarkey comments and know-it-all posts will get them...what? Praise and Likes by the other amateur photo dongs? What kind of a loser picks apart an innocuous list video to build themselves up? I bet I know what kind of loser. The kind that nobody likes in real life. The kind of loser that no one else will listen to because we all can't stand them.

Go head, be king of the dweebs. Im pretty sure this guy has made more money doing what he loves than you ever did.

@quietrich can you translate "dongs"?

Fuji and Yashica could be the new Canon and Nikon?

I expect to see as many articles about this as the Sony A9 ok Rishi 😉? I expect Yashica have developed their own sensor fab plant while they were away.

sh10453: It's unfortunate that Kyocera had acquired and quickly destroyed these two iconic names.
I hope that Contax and Yashica will rise from the dead, although they would be completely different firms, except for the names.

A cigarette in an ad in this day and age??? That is not very smart.

Okaaaaay....getting back to the Yashica story....

Dan DeLion: Hopefully, DPR will not take 2 years to review the 850. Remember the 810!

Yes, in 2 years Nikon may not even be in business. It may end up on Throwback Thursday at some point though.

On article Should you upgrade to a Nikon D850? (663 comments in total)
In reply to:

Joed700: Should I upgrade? This is a rather difficult question, because having the D810, D750, D600 and 6D made me realize that there is a catch to everything. I find myself always shooting with a 20ish MP body, and I rarely take out my D810 because more MP slows down my work flow. On top of that, unless I use VR lenses/tripod, I ended up with less keepers, especially shooting longer focal length lenses at wide aperture. Indoors shooting is out of the question for me; I wouldn't push the ISO on the D810 beyond ISO 1600. That's just from the technical aspect of my own debate, and the reliability issues on Nikon bodies certainly is a minus for me; I had the D600 and still own the D750..

With 45 MP on the D850, the mentioned issues will only get more challenging for sure. If I'm a videographer, this is a no-brainer...you get the best of both worlds.

I would need to see the high ISO performance results from either DXO Mark or equivalent, and that's is going to be a major deciding factor.

Seems like a "no" then.

What if I have a Hasselblad Lunar? Is the D850 a good upgrade? I've been waiting for the Lunar II for ages. Not sure if when it will come out.
