I'm pleased to announce that our in-depth review of the D810 is now published. A lot of you will be asking why it took so long. That's a good question. There's no single, simple answer, but believe us when we say that over the past two years there has rarely been a day when we have not been working on the D810 review in some way or other.

As we started to dig deeper and deeper into things like its class-leading dynamic range, its 3D tracking autofocus and numerous other details, we realized that not only did we have to revisit some of our existing testing methods, but that to properly test a camera like this we had a responsibility to create entire new tests.

You've seen the results of those new testing methods in our reviews of other major cameras like the Sony a7R II and Canon EOS 5DS/R. When we started looking into shutter-induced vibrations at certain shutter speeds for example, we had to devote a lot of time to tedious repeated testing of several cameras, not just the D810, to figure out what was going on. We did that because we don't like guessing. Because when we suspect that a certain camera (or class of camera) displays a behavioral quirk that photographers should know about, we like to be able to prove it.

This process of evolving old tests and developing new ones is ongoing. Ironically, none of our recent reviews of major new flagship cameras could have been written to the standard that they were without some of the tests we developed when working on the D810.  We're just very sorry that it took so long before we could show you our workings. 

And with that - we hope you enjoy the review!
