  • I don't think Nikon should make a D760 DSLR and should focus on Mirrorless cameras and the future.  Some other people disagree.  I posted the text below in another post but wanted to add it here to this one as well. 

In reference to the D760 video I posted this morning about why Nikon should not make a D760.

I'm seeing a lot of comments pointing to the reason people want to keep their DSLR is because of legacy lenses. I have a few thoughts on this. One, I will give you that legacy lenses with Nikon is a big deal.

What I will say is the a huge number of Nikon auto focus lenses adapt perfectly to the Z series with the FTZ adapter. If the older lenses don't adapt, I think it would be smart on Nikon's part to make an adapter that allows you to use your legacy lenses.

For me, i'm not going to use the older glass, the newer glass is better in my opinion. At some point Nikon's current users will age out and if all Nikon does it cater towards them, they will be left with a smaller group of users.

I get it, change is tough, but you have to evolve as tech evolves or be left behind.

Someone below in the comments said this. "You don't get to hear this on social media, (dare I say because they'd sooner be out taking photos), but mirrorless isn't for everyone, some people don't need their features because their skills are such that there not required."

That is a complete BS statement. People don't need mirrorless because their skills are such that it's not required? That's so ignorant and sounds like the person has never used mirrorless. It's like saying, and this is extreme but "i don't need a car, I have 300 horses to pull me". You evolve as tech evolves. Mirrorless gives you things DSLR's never can. It takes the best of 100 years of cameras and starts to push it forward. Simple as my focus points can cover 90+ percent of the frame and I don't have to lock in and recompose. Certain things are just easier.

Not everything is perfect on a mirrorless camera. As you know, i've been anti mirrorless for a long long time. Then Sony came out with the a7 III and I saw what I was able to accomplish with it. I would be foolish to ignore it and say the DSLR is the future.

I will also add that people are saying they want the features of a D850 in a D760 but they aren't acknowledging the point that if they did that, what would the price be? Nikon has to focus on the Z6 at the $2,000 price point. If they focus on legacy, there may be no future for them either way.

      

  • On this fix we have some new firmware for the Sony a7 III and a7R III that brings more autofocus capabilities for adapted lenses with third party adapters. Tricks of the trade for food photography. Photokina postponing the next Photokina until May of 2020. And finally Tumblr decides no more racy images on their site. This is your Photo News Fix

  • I think the Canon 50mm F1.2 L RF is the BEST 50mm lens the've ever made.  And it better be for that price.
