I really thought Nikon had started to lose its way like Canon over the last few years. They started to both fall behind in video and they simply didn't accept that mirrorless could be competition to them.
However, after reading this review I realize that Nikon DOES get it and that Canon still doesn't.
They realize that mirrorless is competition for their lower end D3XXX cameras. That is OK because they also know that there is still a good market for high end full frame cameras that won't absolutely destroy a bank account.
Nikon knows that if you build a full frame camera with an Awesome sensor and lots of features you can make good money just off of that market alone.
Canon on the other hand just simply thinks that everyone who has bought their equipment in the past will continue to do so simply because that is what they have always done.
What are we all complaining about? Just 6 years ago we had pathetic burst rates, 12 Megapixels was the Max instead of the min available, Video was non existent, Quiet shutters were almost unheard of, Auto Focus was only slightly better than manual focus, and the cameras cost more than they do today.
If you can't take great pictures and videos with the latest cameras then you really can't blame the camera anymore.
Canon is Freaking killing it........ In their own minds.
jonrobertp: Dpr continues to slide downhill with its ratings. Credibility? Keep looking.
"Where is the Pentax K-3 review?"
I see what you did there.
mpgxsvcd: Canon still thinks they use better sensors.
"It's almost like Canon engineers were told specifically not to improve on dynamic range...."
mpgxsvcd: It kind of sucks...... For Canon that is.
"Maybe it will prompt Canon to release a 6DII with better AF and some weather sealing and two card slots."
And faster burst mode, with a better sensor, better video capabilities.....etc.
mpgxsvcd: Nikon really should put this sensor in a small mirror-less body. I really want to get a full frame camera but I am too accustomed to small cameras now. They already have the DSLR body style covered.
I would love to see a mirror-less version of this camera.
"The one in the Sony A7ii should be similar, in a small body."
And right now that camera is the only one on my list. I would love to see a second one on there though.
Some of them are terrific. Some of them aren't.
RedFox88: A bit of a contradiction, DPR: you can't have a Pro being "best in class burst mode" but a Con being "limited buffer affects continuous shooting". They cancel each other out. Fouls on both teams: replay the down.
The burst mode speed is just fine. The only issue is that you can't shoot it as long as some other cameras. That is still useable though.
It is actually fairly good for video as well. None of that Canon dullness.

Time to break out the Platinum award!

This article is not on the homepage so almost no one sees it. Dpreview is missing out on a ton of hits because of this.
This article is not on the homepage so it isn't being seen by anyone who doesn't get the emails. You guys might want to fix that.
KL Matt: Can anyone else still see this roundup on the DPR homepage? As far as I can tell, it's no longer visible under Dec. 16. Perhaps a publishing glitch. Would also explain the lack of comments.
It looks like they messed up when posting it. They are missing out on a ton of hits right now because this doesn't appear on the homepage.
It appears that there are two different links for this article.
This link from the homepage has almost no comments.
This one has many comments.
I know I am not the only one that cares about these cameras. Something must be wrong or there would be more comments. Am I the only one that can see this article?
Dpreview can you look into this?
Can you define pocket-able for this category?
