Mariano Pacifico: Leica is a luxury brand. Meaning, it is to be bought to be showed off not to be used for its IQ.

>How about Huawei and Zenit?

As hernansote stated, minimum association to technology.

tvstaff: Is Canon innovating in any way with regard to this technology?

Samsung shut down their camera business because they innovated.

I'll be interested in Samsung only when they re-start their camera business.

Zenit was never regarded a luxury brand during the film days.
Unless priced dirt cheap, it's bound to fail, no matter how well they're built.

It recommended me
"NIKON D810
with
Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM II Lens For Nikon
or
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G Lens"

None of which I have little care of owning, including D810.

Sony's first attempt at a real camera, and also one of the last.

tbcass: ""Whether the lack of live view has any real relevance in a camera at this level remains to be seen; we doubt it."

Amazing that after all these years the value of live view is still debated.

Live view is still debated for DSLRs.

Yes, it's debated, even in 2017.

On article Fujifilm X-E3 First Impressions Review (309 comments in total)
In reply to:

LakeSuperior1: Please, those of you complaining about the X-Trans sensor or the lack of a tilt screen just stop! The X-Trans sensor is who Fuji is. It's a big part of what has helped them grow. Don't like it? Don't buy a Fuji. And as for the tilt screen, they have stated in the past if you want a tilt screen then the X-T line is what you want. If a tilt screen and no X-Trans sensor are what you want in a small form camera, then there is a company called Sony that makes just what you are looking for.

>"stop complaining" is to suggest that companies should not be interested in the feedback of their customers. As long as complaints have reasonable rationale I say keep it coming.

Perhaps lack of tilt screen is a result of feedback from customers?
There probably were a lot of customers that said 'don't bother with tilt screens for E-series', and Fuji listened.

micsmics: Rear screen - Fixed ) 2017! )

If a flip-up screen is an absolute necessity, look for another model in Fuji's line-up with a flip-up screen.
Not everyone's keen on flip-up screens. I personally think it's a nuisance.

Soon, we will have robots going to vacation spots for you so you don't even have to leave your homes.

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

fmaxwell: Should you upgrade? If you're a successful professional photographer who writes off your gear on your taxes, and the D850 addresses things that hold you back with your current camera, probably.

If you're a hobbyist with a reasonably modern, well-regarded DSLR, probably not.

If you're someone who consciously positions your arms so that people can see your Patek Philippe wristwatch, then you might think this a good investment as a fashion accessory.

>But the vast majority of hobbyist photographers won't improve their photos by replacing perfectly good, modern DSLRs with Nikon D850s -- regardless of their income.

Vast majority of professional photographers won't improve their photos by replacing perfectly good, modern DSLRs with Nikon D850s either.

Fact that replacing won't improve photos shouldn't bar photographers, hobbyist or professionals, from purchasing latest gears.

Melinium: I can't wait for the mirrorless from Nikon, hoping that it don't follow the DL way. A dedicated lens line-up, with an adapter for the F mount lens. The sensor can be a FF or APS-C or both version.

If a FF or APS-C mirrorless ever comes out of Nikon, it probably won't be using F-mount. One would have to invest in a whole new set of lenses anyhow.

In reply to:

samfan: Yes, it's nice. But if I want a small decent pocketable cam when I don't want to lug around this beast?

Or I just don't want to spend thousands, or lug around such beast in the first place, well Nikon has what?

Oh yea. Squat.

A nice upgrade for existing FX users for sure, at least for those that aren't tired with Nikon's constant QA problems. Also a nice new toy for those that always need the newest and greatest. Anyone else should think twice before investing in a Nikon system. They've burned their users way too many times already.

If you want a pocketable camera, you shouldn't even be reading this article. Or maybe even this site.

Sonyshine: The D850 is Nikon’s big old petrol guzzling limo compared to Sony’s sleek Tesla. It is the last fling of the bulky old tech dslr industry.

Nikon should be moving forward with exciting new camera technology. Not more iterations of an old dinosaur.

Yes it will be a great camera but it goes to prove that Nikon’s days are numbered if they cannot develop new, innovative and fresh cameras.

In the era of smartphones, DSLRs and mirrorless are both dinosaurs, just different kind.
But I'll still prefer fossilized DSLR than a smartphone to take pictures.

There are plenty of mirrorless already from other manufacturers.
Why wait so long for Nikon's mirrorless? No guarantee that Nikon will deliver.

Betico: Nikon still can't design a decent battery door. Not even on a $3000 camera. I think it is about time the Chinese rescue this ailing company and put on it some new energy and "savoir faire" in it, just as they did with Volvo. Otherwise Nikon will not survive the in the coming two or three years years.
BTW a $3000 camera will never save Nikon.
Another possibility for Nikon is to be taken over by Sony. Sony will continue making the D1, branded as Sony D1, and discontinue the rest of the Nikon range including this new D850.

Chinese would just steal Pentax's solution.

That makes sense. It makes no sense to shoot up 53 D5s to ISS.

I personally don't understand this analogy that a hobbyist must be wealthy in order to purchase high-end gears. If a hobbyist is only interested in photography, and refrains from spending in things unrelated to photography (like Patek Philippe), he should be able to save up enough to purchase any high-end gear. Unless he is out of work.

In reply to:

Gavril Margittai: Guys on the forum are making fun of the old Russian camera maker Zenith. Let me ask you about Kodak cameras. Where are they? At one point they were pretty popular. What happened to them?

If Zenit even remotely succeeds, at least Russians can claim that they can produce dedicated cameras, while Americans do not.
