  • Except that the average person will have one 100-400 or 200-400. TV broadcasters will most definately have more than 10 of these. Think of a typical pro sports game, and all the camera angles they...

  • Holy cow, what did I miss? I'm still ysing Pro5. LR is amazing for editing volume, but ACDSee is still the best at organizing, burning, doing batch actions like resizing and watermarking and...

  • As a pro photographer, would you give customers 80% of your best product at a 60% discount? No? Either is Nikon. The Df is 40% a D4 at 40% of the price.

  • Sony is no angel. There is a lot of room for improvements in their FF mirrorless. But credit given where credit is due; Sony has finally hit their radar. Now you'll see Nikon react to market or...

  • Not just the D600 oil issue but the D800 AF issue too. The latter I would argue is more important. That said, they have demonstrated with the 610 & 810 that QC is back to where we expect it. ...

  • Sigma of old had a reputation of having great ideas but with poor excecution. When I shot Nikon DX I so wanted the 50-150 but inconsistent reports scared me away. If it were an Art series level of...

  • Touch screen isn't really needed when all the adjustments you need to actually shoot are found on buttons on the outside if the camera.

  • This is good news from Nikon forum perusers. As Nikon users, crying for a D300 replacement, migrate to the 7DII, we'll hear less and less about the lack of a D300 replacement. Thank you Canon. :-)....

  • I've used a d810 for weddings, specifically the brides veil over her face.... no aliasing. The new processors have aliasing correction algorithms. Even LR has a brush for fixing moire.

  • So it's not an imminent release... it's "being developed". Which means it's at least a year away from see the light of day. Did Tamron just hear that Photokina was now? No one else has been...

  • @nerd2; Apple came out with this smart phone concept first. Before Apple, when BlackBerry ruled, all Samsung's had a QWERTY keyboard and some sort of track ball. After Apple, Samsung phones had the...

  • Classes exist in all purchase-able products. Cars. Houses for example. It's like not understanding that Porsches are not priced at VW price points. Price points exist so everyone can own a name...

  • Partially true, but remember the target market is people who are likely to buy more than 1 and have it paid off (i.e. the market can bare the cost) on one or two assignments. But the other factor...

  • Is that a burn? That makes no sense. Your comment above suggested to not bother updating D4s firmware because Nikon doesn't support 3rd party battery grips. I was reminding you that the D4s has a...

  • This just in.... Nikon D4s has built in battery grip!

  • Pentax users, I am sorry for you.

  • Agreed. When someone thinks of searching for something, they think Google, Yahoo, Bing. Not Zenfolio. There is potential though, and I hope part of that $400 fee goes towards Zenfolio making this...

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    Actually, as a D800 user I don't really care what real world samples are like. I know they will only be good. But thanks for trying to think like a D800 user. What has sold me on the upgrade is the...

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    The rate of wearing cameras out has increased now too. In the 80's with manual focus and 24 or 36 frames per roll, one shot far less than now. Frame rates and video but more strain on mirrors and...
