In reply to:

skanter: Fixed LCD equals useless IMO. Should be outmoded by now.

I'll take an outmoded camera any day if it's better than one in mode.

DSLR for those who need something that is just a DSLR. No frills, no high performance, no latest tech, no nothing.

I wouldn't be surprised if most of them deteriorated beyond salvation.

This event should teach Nikon that if you're adding a feature, add it so that it's useful, or don't add it at all.

VisualFX: How does this get better rating then Samsung NX1 that does 15fps, 4K, 205 Phase AF, 153 cross-type,etc, and fast AF of 0.055s, all two years ago?

NX1 was never universally available.

SkyTamer: Good job Nikon.
Please fit this system magnificence in a Nikon FM body and then please take my money.

I prefer F3

In reply to:

Old Cameras: I think customers would accept an all- carbon fiber camera body and the deletion of the auto focus motor for screw drive lenses, and the aperture ring, making this camera like a D5xxx, compatible only with AF-S lenses. They could make a top of the line camera that weighs little more than a pound.

As a back up for D500, maybe.

In reply to:

jrsjs: Given its price and its size, I am not sure why one would buy this instead of a full frame model. I don't think that the D810 is much more expensive now. The D810 has a crop mode so you can obtain the extra reach if needed but there again with 36MP you can simply crop.
I appreciate that if you own many DX lenses it could appeal but even so.

For some people, FF, whatever size or price, is not an option.

EthanX: The 7200 has a flash - so why isn't the cell in the comparison green?

The 7200 is 24MP, the 500 is 20. Again, no green color.
The 7200 is a lot lighter. 85 grams lighter.

Plus, I believe the price row is missing... :)

So many opportunities missed to show the weaker sides of this camera compared to its cheaper older brother. Why?

...Ah, and you don't have to spend your hard earned money on features you won't really be using (200 high-end raw files in one burst? that's 20 seconds, what are we trying to capture, a passing train?).

Nevertheless, it's got some nice strengths. 4K video, tilting touchscreen (although it diesn't flip sideways), bluetooth. not bad.

I wonder why Yukon Ranger is trashing the D500 against the D7200. They're both Nikons.

In reply to:

cosmaracoare: Not much of a top of the line, oh my god, can not believe it camera. Sony alpha 77II is almost two years old and does almost all of the stuff this one does plus some other things this one can not do, all for half the price. The almost ecstatic tone of this review makes me wonder if I am missing something - this site, as always, seems to continue to be biased towards anything Canon and Nikon

Just click a Sony review if you want a Sony product applauded.

Samsung should have marketed the NX1 in Japan.
It could have been the first Samsung product widely accepted.

In reply to:

Michael Ma: NX1 was validation that they can compete with the big boys as in terms of tech and image quality. If they ever come back, they should come back with full frame and a new set of lenses rather than trying to establish footing in some kind of crowded and cloudy crop sensor market.

Why should Canon and Nikon allow Samsung to reap profits from their investment? Developing a viable mount (and a system) isn't cheap.

In reply to:

LawDude: If Samsung had offered h.264 as an alternate codec, and built a smart adapter so people could migrate their EF/EF-S lenses with full AF functionality (while Samsung developed their own lens ecosystem), they could have dominated the market with the NX-1.

Why should Canon allow Samsung of all companies to drive their sales down?

On article Benchmark performance: Nikon D810 in-depth review (255 comments in total)
In reply to:

zakk9: I'm amazed over the number of negative comments here. The fact that the D810 is two years old and still highly relevant shows what a great camera this is. To me, it's the first truly universal DSLR camera, and as the article mentions, it strikes way above its class. At the same time, I've been using it for motor racing and air shows and never really missed a D5 or D500 enough to consider one of those instead of the D810.

Dial in ISO 64 and go out shooting. There are few photography experiences that top the D810 in a good mood :)

Better late than never.
I don't understand why some people expect DPR to upload a full 200 page review of every product a day after the official release.
DPR may be significant, but it's not the only way to judge whether a product is worth purchasing.

saeba77: image the same quality sensor and similar AF in a mirrorless body as the A6xxx.
Damn if only Nikon making that not cannibalize his own market:(

> saeba77

So, Nikon should offer a mirrorless just so some can benefit from cheaper lenses and used market?

ManInTime: My Wish list for Nikon's up and coming serious mirror-less lineup (Add your idea's in the comments below)
1. the same high resolution, great detail, low light performance and great dynamic range we all know and love from their DSLR's.
2. connectivity to as many existing Nikon lens as possible (i know this would be a problem... but one can dream)
3. built in VIEWFINDER, if there's one big disappointment from the DL's is the lack of built-in viewfinder, which most enthusiasts and pro's love so much. fix that Nikon and we will be VERY happy.
4. Good battery life compared to its peers. Nikon, please be the first to introduce new standards in mirror-less battery life, aim for more then 600 shots!
5. small size low weight
6. tilt flip touchscreen on all future models
7. fast autofocus system, with good low light capabilities.
8. around 1200$ kit for a mid-range model, and 1800$ for semi-pro.
there's much more to say, i will let other users add some idea's :)

It's your wish list.
And only yours.

Sonyshine: To all those folks who deny photography is a middle aged male hobby may I suggest you study the group of middle aged male Nikon executives above....

....then ask Nikon where are the rebellious young designers? The creative women?

>Sonyshine

>Well Abe did his best to legislate to increase women in the Japanese workforce. He at least recognised its a problem.

Abe's as knowledgeable as a monkey.

Franz Weber: That is sad. I will never buy a camera from an asian manufacturer again.

Samsung doesn't sell their cameras in Japan. Even their smartphones aren't advertised as a Samsung product. If they did, their smartphones wouldn't sell either.
