Wow, great camera, great lens. Greatly out of my price range. But sure fun to look at.

cosinaphile: i hope this is a killer camera with crazy dr and strong sales

Nikon needs this big time

They only will not sell sensor specifically specced and built for Sony camera. Nikon can specc and get built any sensor the order. They are two totally separated entities. Sony buys sensors from sony. Nikon buys more sensors from sony than sony.

You have no idea what you are talking about. Sony with held nothing from Nikon. How many years did Nikon have exclusive use of the 36 mp sensor that Sony imaging designed for them?

They only held back specific sensors order by the Sony camera division. Sony imaging will build anything Nikon wants, as long as Sony camera isn't already using it. Certainly far cheaper to order off the shelf stock with your own flavors applied.

beavertown: Yawn zZZ, still no fully articulate screen and DPAF from Nikon 2017 (100 anniversary).

Nikon tiltable screens are extremely rugged with steel folding arms. The ability to shoot overhead and below waist with it is of great value as I get older. I firmly believe if Nikon had put a fully articulating screen on it's upper end cameras, it would have been considered too flimsy by buyers. There was a lot of pushback even against the very strong articulating screen on the D750.

I used various articulating screens on small cameras in the past 18 years at work, and they are useful, but one had to be fixed and one replaced due to the hinge malfunctioning. Although they were heavily used in a factory environment.

Eric Hensel: Almost like waiting for Pentax Full-frame.

Who's copying who? Pretty sure Nikon had a tiltable screen first on several cameras, and illuminated controls and no flash in their pro line.

dgumshu: Im sure it will be a very fine camera... and I'm looking forward to its release. However, I can hear the mirrorless people bashing it already.

Whining mirrorless people are much more annoying. How many death of the DSLR posts and comments could we find on this site.

Mirrorless is the future, and Canon and Nikon are the ones who will take it mainstream. But there will always be pro's who want OVF.

endofoto: King is dead, long live the new king. This will be the gold standard for fashion and wedding pros.

He is almost certainly correct. It will have more than it's fair share. It "is" a Pro camera, and fashon is pretty much dominated by Canon and Nikon.

MikeF4Black: Looking at the number of comments here it is abundantly clear the death of the DSLR is imminent.

Well Beav, considering the D850 hasn't even had specs released, and has 900 comments in two posts, fairly sure it will bury the 6D in the long run. Not to mention the majority of those 1500 posts were not exactly praise for the 6D.

Predictable. How many Canon Pro cameras have a tilting screen.

steelhead3: I wonder if Sony is already producing the RX1 III and has not filed a patent for it yet and Nikon like most failing companies is trying for patent wars with their attorneys.

Nikon as a failing company sells more cameras and makes more money doing it than Sony. But you knew that. You just can't pass up an opportunity to troll Nikon.

In reply to:

steelhead3: Good for Nikon trying to match the RX1...they know they can't match the Sony lens so they come up with a Sony sensor and are able to use a smaller cheaper lens.

Not so fast Steel.

Trump couldn't find his butt with both hands. He certainly couldn't reach it. He will devour a rotisserie chick in one bite tho.

This is pretty cool tech. Google is becoming the new whipping boy along with Amazon, but really would hate living without either of them. "Walked" through my hometown that I haven't visited for 20 years. I loved it, rekindled many memories.

sandy b: Bummer for Nikon. On the other hand, I just got mine back today with a brand new shutter, New grips, cleaned and updated firmware postage free with a 2-week turnaround. And a guarantee on the shutter. Not bad for a 2 1/2-year-old camera.

They have the customer service thing working, now if they could just fix their shutter issues.

The Jupiter super cell would neatly fit the earth.

I bet you're a lot of fun at a party.

Don't mistake ego and intelligence. Some of our leaders are extremely intelligent and dangerous.

sandy b: If you are on vacation and hand your camera to a local to take a family picture, does the local retain ownership of that picture? I think not.

Never underestimate the stupidity of the human race.

Certainly not worth arguing over, but I still think there is an intelligent court in this land that would overturn this crackpot decision. -IMO.

Why? Because it's stupid. My camera, my memory card, my processing, my family. Asking a favor should in no way pass ownership. What is it about this that you don't get?
