f1.4? Pfffft. f1.2!
Only if you remove the secondary aperture in the sensor cell.

There is not that many lenses that satisfy the 36mp nikon.
Just send a HD to amazon, maybe once per month.
You miss that upping RAW filles needs a lot of bandwith.
Here in Europe where i live 60KB/s upload speed is the norm outside big cities.LTE spreads fast, it's just a matter of time
That´s DSL6000 upload speed.
They have access to a fab that can handle 35mm sensors and at least two companies who create smaller sensors that perform on par with Sony's. Working something out shouldn't be impossible. It's hard to say no to the company that makes the machines you need to make your semiconductors after all
I agree that the D3/D4 sensors are custom built and perform very well. However, will a Nikon D4 user be satisfied when a new D4 would come with only a 16Mp version. To make clear, I would have no problem with that as I also have a 1Dx with 'only' 18Mp. it's not only the pixels that is counting. It's the complete system. Would the same people say over here then that the D4s is 2 generations behind on the D810 with Sony's sensor?
I agree fully that Nikon is multi sourcing what is a very good purchase strategic, however they are not buying the same product at all those places. The Sony Exmor with the big Mp is really top. If that source would be cutted off, they have a big problem for the Dxxx and Dxxxx series.The Toshiba sensor is good enough to keep people from noticing that some of the current Dxxxx aren't Exmor.
A company like Nikon has strategic a big problem. They are fully dependent on sensors of Sony. What if the next release of sensor of Sony is only kept for Sony itself. Then Nikon really has a problem.
You have to look at the whole system today to justify buying Canon.
I bet it would sell a ton. I'd buy one.
I'm ask in favor of having a good local option, but it feels like my local store is trying to rip me off more than to be a service to me.
But, it is only with the best (1050+ lines average) lenses that it makes the difference between a 36MP and 22MP.
So, no, it is not only a gimmick for people who know what they do with video.
That's all fine and dandy but in the Real world, hardly of any use. Only a handful of lenses actually can resolve the details of a 36mp sensor. Forget about a 50mp sensor on that Sony glass.
And an opportunity to mess with 3rd party products - a few angles in the smart communication, if we take the ink cardridges as a reference.
New battery, slightly better capacity.... You can use the old LP-E6 in the camera.
In the face of new evidence I'd be happy to change my understanding and position on the topic. Until then, current lenses are likely more than sufficient for 50mp sensors.
Yes, other brands do offer 4K for consumers - as it is a fairly easy gimmick to sell people on even if it has no benefit.
You have to think about the costs to store data safely and efficiently, not only that have a machine that can deal with loading the images quickly for efficient workflow for PP.
As for products that 'lack spark', that's completely subjective. Their products spark enough interest to keep them the market leader...
