Rigucci: Too bad that the Nikon 750 has these problems. Has anyone had issues with the shutter on the Nikon 810?

On the contrary using Nikon lenses is its greatest strength.

The only issue with the the D810 is that Canon still haven't made a camera that can compete with it...

Can anyone point to just 1 piece of innovation? Anything at all?

PhotoPoet: Keeping my D7200 but using my Fuji X T-2 more each day

Why have you got an XT2 and a D7200? That makes no sense at all...

Svetoslav Popov: 20MPx but not OLPF? What a mess.
I always hated the artifacts of the D70/D50. Now there's another one. Sigh.

You've never seen output from a D500 then. There's nothing messy about it, in fact it's class leading.

In reply to:

Jack Hogan: This camera is a turnoff for landscape shooters like me. Lower resolution, probably lower DR at base and the old AF. The old AF is no slouch but then I would prefer a D7200 over the obviously-crippled-by-marketing D7500 today even if they both cost the same $1000. Tsk, tsk Nikon, two years later and this is all you can come up with at a critical juncture in the industry?

I use the D500 as a backup to my D810 and all I shoot is landscape. I can confirm that the sensor is outstanding for landscape work and you will gain cleaner higher ISO too. There's plenty of examples on my Flickr Stream here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/russellbarnes/

TheMexican: One SD card?? no UHS-II??
why oh why?!

Price differentiation, protecting the higher end models and profit. Does that cover it for you? ;)

endofoto: Nikon D7200 has a better sensor than D500 and better dynamic range than FF D5 (see DXO comparison) and Nikon wanted to cripple D7500 to sell pricy D500 I think. In other ways it is improved over 7200.

The D500 sensor and associated output is outstanding. It's the cornerstone of the camera - I've not found anyone that didn't agree.

In reply to:

sandy b: 50 shot 14 bit raw buffer. Huge improvement. But, damn, that second card slot.

Removing the 2nd card slot is partially how they deliver that increased buffer. Quid Pro Quo. Reducing resolution of the sensor is another, no one seems to be bitching about that. It's all about moving data around the camera in the most efficient way. If you want a 2nd card slot buy the D500 speed machine with its XQD support.

barrym1966: D7500 powered by Sony :)

Seriously though the removal of a card slot... Why would you do that?

Bandwidth concerns. The slot isn't the fastest so two slow slots slows the whole camera down. That's why FPS is what it is.

Vivid1: You will get the exact same poll results if you asked the question:
"Which brand of camera do you own:
- Canon
- Nikon
- Sony
- Fuji etc etc..."

No you won't.

Old Cameras: Makes the Nikkor 58mm f1.4G look like a pretty good deal. Out of focus highlights are pretty hard edged, why would anyone want it?

At the risk of raising old arguments, the Nikon 58mm f/1.4G clearly wipes the floor with something like this, especially in bokeh terms.

x10x10x: Very nervous Bokeh, what's the point.

Agreed. Looks worse than a cheap 50mm 1.8

Tilted Plane: Great, sharply worded review.

I am probably not the only one with a Nikon 14-24mm that wonders about how the Sigma compares there, at least down to 14mm.

Based on this review, the reputation of the world class Nikon 14-24mm continues to be more of than safe.

AshMills: Should be good for sales of focus alignment tools, skincare products and chiropractor treatment. Images do look great though.

Has anyone weighed this thing yet, because that important number seems very hidden!?

Nearly 1.2Kilos? Is that right? Dear god what are they thinking? Another bloated offering like the 35 and 50 before it then. Never going to get me to part with my ££££

A thing of beauty. They should bring back that logo too. Despite being made in 1948, if that had been manufactured last week no one would bat an eyelid. Classic design lasts 70 years or more...

Chaitanya S: I hope this lens solves focus breathing and shorter effective focal length of VR2 lens.

I bet you a huge amount of money it has been resolved... Nikon do listen to their users.

Are my eyes deceiving me or is that tripod mount arca-swiss compatible?
