In this episode:
We talk about Nikon’s quiet factory recall of the D750, which while a wonderful camera (and our pick for DSLR of the Year 2014), has been plagued with a light leak/flare issue.
I read the email I got from Amazon.com regarding the D750 problem and read info from Nikon’s site with a message to wait for a forthcoming announcement at the end of January.
We discuss whether or not Nikon should give everyone a new D750 rather than fix their D750 with issues while others get brand new cameras in the supply chain.
We also talk about how this issue and the oil spot issues with the D600 and D800 have tarnished Nikon’s image and what that means for them in this highly competitive market with increased competition in the mirrorless market.
We talk about my experience shooting the Utah state high school football championship…with the $550 Sony a6000 and how it performed. And how the Sony A7s did shooting action.
In the news:
Nikon announces a 300mm f/4E PF ED VR as well as a 55-200m f/4.5-5.6G ED VR II. We talk about the merits of these lenses.
We discuss Yongnuo entering the lens game with a near clone of the Canon 50mm f/1.8, it’s price and it’s surprising performance.
