NEWS Nikon D5100 Special

Nikon D5100

Awesome Deal!

Forget the D5200, Adorama is having a special on a refurbished D5100 at under $380! The D5200 doesn’t do much more than the original D5100. It is a mere incremental upgrade. I would skip the D5200 all together and get a D5100 at this refurbished price or a new D3200.

Fixed Pricing Policy

Nikon established a new pricing policy back in October 2011. It comes at a disappointment for consumers. The new policy instantiates a fixed pricing scheme across retailers, and includes online retailers as well.

NEWS Nikon ISO Field Test

Nikon ISO Test

D600 | D4 | D800 | D700

In this high ISO field test, we compare the differences between the Nikon D4, D800E, D600, and D700 at high ISO sensitivities and compare the noise, dynamic range, and color performance.

The results are more comparable than measurable, due to the field environment.

Nikon 28mm 50mm 85mm 1.8g

28mm 1.8 | 50mm 1.8 | 85mm 1.8

Nikon's 1.8 FX prime lenses present excellent optics at an affordable price. Read how these lenses perform up to their father f/1.4 figures. I think you'll find these lenses surprisingly adequate!

NEWS Nikon D800E: Rumor | No AA Filter

Nikon D800E

February 7th | 36MP | No Anti-Aliasing Filter

The new Nikon D800 without the anti-aliasing filter will be called the D800E model.

Note that this is still a rumor. I am about 80% confident that this is truth. The announcement will be on February 7th, just before CP+.
