I mistakiingly thought it read 'the next Canon DSLR will record 4K 60 fps ;)

mmarian: Completely out of topic but looking at the photo of the camera makes me jellous when looking at the amazingly beautifully looking top camera display when I compare it to the archaic one Canon still uses on their bodies including my 5D4. Their displays have not changed in 15 years!!!

@mmarian
Absolutely agree, rediculous penny pinching by Canon.

AshMills: Anyone else find this touchingly sad?

Yes, but I'm not sure why. Some lost happier times maybe?

Super clean colours. MF delivers, as promised.

james s. kennedy: Of the Influential people in England at that time, Churchill was virtually only one who didn't want to come to terms with Hitler. Hitler accepted the Brits as fellow Aryans. Dunkirk brought most of the troops home, at the sacrifice of nearly all of the Army's heavy equipment. Certainly a profound historical event. But the English Channel is very unlike crossing a river even though it is only about 20 miles wide at Pas de Calais. The U.K. was able to hang on until the US and the USSR were involved. WW2 was the finest hour for all the allies.

Hitler halted the advance of Guderian, partly because Goering stated that his Luftwaffe could finish the job. I was in grade school during the war, and unlike today, the US was totally United.

@James S. Kennedy
On a similar sad note, we did not allow the Polish airmen, who fought and died for our country (the UK), to attend the 1946 Victory Parade. It was decided that it might upset our 'ally' Stalin who had just occupied Poland.

'totally United'
Martin Luther King would have had an opinion on this. . .

Being late to the table is not all bad. Just look how the Sony's A7 series and u4/3 camp have evolved, showing what is technically possible now. Good luck to you Nikon, make it a stonker!

Ron A 19: I've got a 6D and I can say this update looks pretty good. They added a touchscreen, more megapixels, 4K and better AF, so quite a decent update. However, I won't be upgrading because I think the lack of integrated Pokémon Go is a lost opportunity.

4K for timelapse only, I believe.

Yes another impressive camera from Sony, but exactly what's inside that costs the £2000 premium over the A7RII ?

Unfortunately, it means our hobby will be becoming more and more expensive as we prop up dwindling sales.

In reply to:

Marty4650: This camera actually makes sense for Nikon.

By simultaneously upgrading (touch screen, tilt screen, faster processor, 4K video) and then downgrading (single card slot) Nikon has updated and better positioned their D7xxx model under their D500 and over their D5600.

Nikon has essentially created a refresh with very little R&D expense involved. A three day project for their engineering department.

It won't take long before this is selling for under $1,000 body only.

Just think how much better it would have been if Sony had designed the sensor;)
