Always the Indian, and not the arrow.
I love that quote, hahaha

It's going to be my answer every time someone asks me "what camera are you using?"

Looks like the AF tracking for video needs work. I know most probably just buy Nikon for stills but sounds like they have some catching up to do for video.

The Devil made me buy it - RFD. :twisted:

This is only good for still photos. DSLR videos is dead.

If you don't believe it, just wait and see.

Honestly, are photos better
A. Because of sensor and processor improvements over last year?
B. Because Nikon is making much better lenses than even 10 years ago?
C. Because the current generation of software has improved so much?
D. Because the photographer is better at what he/she does as the result of the normal skills improvement that comes with time and experience? THIS > D850
Couldn't agree with this more. I shoot an aging D7100 and D600. But for the most part, the D850 will not improve my photos. I figure the DSLR has maybe 2-4 years of life in it before mirrorless takes over completely. I have kinda made the decision to shoot the crap out of my current Nikon gear and hope that their next mirrorless platform supports the F mount.

Same for Canon.

6D2 was medicore upgrade.

They can't piss off every Canon user out there if they don't keep the EF mount in play.

I'm using my D600 and I can't seeing much difference by upgrading either. Aside from actual new features like HD video at 60fps, which will allow better siow mo video playback, the actual pictures wont be any better in 99.5% of shots.
