A perfect match for the Otus 85mm f1.4! ;)

We should know in 18 hours and 28 minutes if the other rumor they posted about the date of annoucement is correct. ;)

It's not a rumour anymore... It is actual specifications, some Nikon dealers (I don't agree with the policy) have opened preorder lists... Actually I may have opened the discussion a bit early, but there are images of the camera expected within hours, Nikon has invited people for the presentation of the camera and specs are an official ..."leak" (as it is usual with makers). After all this discussion will still be open with the official announcement of the product.

Not really very interesting a D610 with a few extra bits and a price ramp
Can't see D700 users running to this

Some nice features, particularly in focussing & metering. The wi-fi & movie stuff holds little interest for me. A second-hand D800 looks a more promising option, and cheaper too.

Dont get the naming -why 750? Why's Nikon progressed like that?
And what's the big deal about rebadged 610?/600?

I don't agree, Barry. Early this year I switched to a D800 and really miss the D700's high frame rate for some of the action stuff I shoot. The extra bits aren't trivial either - video, for example. I've loved articulated screens on cameras like the Fuji XT1 and would use it for casual people shots or to save some of the rolling around on the ground photographing mushrooms, while the wifi will probably enable remote shooting without a Camranger or other third party gear. If I'd been switching now, I might still have gone to the 810 (despite a fixed screen and no wifi) but I can certainly see D700 users finding the 750 very attractive.

When the D810 was announced, I wrote on this fery forum "Nikon has its MkIII".

That was mistaken, it should have been "Nikon has its MkV".

This is the MkIII. ;)

True... this product has nothing to do with D700, it is clearly a "5Dmkii upgrade" or a "5Dmkiii alternative" as everybody is noticing... A D700 replacement would be a D4/D4S downgrade as was D700 with respect to D3/D3S...  ???

I can't (see D700 users running to this) either, it's obviously a "stupid" choice of name to emphasise on its "fast" (faster than the rest "commercial" of Nikons) pace.  :-\

I can't see the (stupid) naming to be the problem... It's clearly not a D700 replacement (that's where the clearly "marketing" naming suffers), but other than the name it seems a pretty good product for the customers that it addresses to... (not the D700 of course...), in fact, I wonder if the bad naming will do some damage to the sales of the camera...  :-\ I wonder what some "golden boys of crap" are thinking when marketing a product...  :P ? ...are they "completely stupid" or what?  :D

No this is Nikon's version of the Sony A7 very compact all new body plus new mirror shutter assembly but full frame same/similar Sony sensor as the A7. Initial retail price is the same as Sony A7R. Maybe this will end up as a replacement for the problematic 6X0 Nikon BTW I already got preorder ads from B&H and Adorama complete with detailed specs and pictures this morning footprint wise it looks to be a similar size as the Canon SL1.

Nikon just keeps beating the same drum. Sony is eating their lunch. When are we going to have a Nikon FX mirrorless?

This reminds me of the days when we all moaned about when was Nikon going to go full frame. It seemed to take forever.

No this is Nikon's version of the Sony A7.......

Sure, it even is mirrorless!  ;D  Main reason why SLR users hate mirrorless is the absence of an optical TTL view, it's what they've been brought up with, what they can function with and what is their main idea about using a DSLR... In other words, "their eye doesn't function digitally"!  ;) There after, there are plenty that may compare beers with wine, apples with oranges, spirits against drinks, Ferraris against VW, trousers with regard to skirts, sail boats against motorboats, single ended stereos against push-pull multi transistor monsters, turntables against CDs, or Earth against Mars... It's their right, nobody can stop them from comparing the incomparable!  ???

True. They are slow.

On the other hand, they mostly get it very right when they move.

Now, I personally think that the D810 has the exact right size for "dedicated" photography and smaller would only help for casual photography... although my new a5100 already works extremely well for that part.

Bernard

I like most everything about this except for...THE FREAKING STUPID DIAL interface.

I 'downgraded' from a D300 to a D7100 and love most everything about the D7100 except for the DIAL.  The button interface on the D300 and other 'pro' cameras is so much easier and faster to use and you never have to pull the camera from your eye to change settings.  Since every setting on a modern camera is set electronically, if they implement named banks where you could set and store every setting, I cold live with this.

I'll compare the D810 to D750 and decide.  I would like the extra shooting speed for the sports I shoot, but I can always use the D7100 for sports and the D810 for my other photography endeavors.
