If that dots symbolize a thoughtful dave, you just need to press the . key longer...
Eyedetection is on board. Edit: No, it's face detection - sorry, dave, that one's on me.
3 genuine + 360 legacy F-lenses are enough for a start.
The road map shows about 8 genuinely new lenses during the next two years.
A vertical grip will also come and the XQD slot is rumored to be exchangeable to XQD, CF or 2× SD.
Next to it: When did YOU ever needed two cards? I know the reasons for double slots, but honestly, I used them only during the time no decent RAW conevrter supported Fuji compressed RAW. And I don't think, the decent RAW converters will need that much time to catch up with the Nikon Z file formats
Let's see if the rumours are true!..........I would rather pay the whatever to have an extra SD card slot................(more dots)......after all I have a bunch of SD cards....... ......then there's reliability.....not just the cards but the card slot itself......my K20's card slot broke so I was dead for a fortnight........as did the K3.......so it's happened twice to me!
Funnily enough I find their best use is when I go to shoot and find the no.1 slot is empty.....still in the computer.....
....no eye detect........this is the biggest feature out there at the moment and it works, I would certainly use it if it was there................a missed opportunity in my book!
I also hear that the battery is only good for 330-350 shots............that's early Sony 7 series level which drove everybody mad. Nikon should have followed Sony and put in a high capacity one.
However, overall it comes with a whole bunch of good stuff and.... "phew" people can use their AF-S lenses with the adapter until all the range turns up.
It's very good, it's just not for me!
Let me say this... CIPA battery life ratings are WORTHLESS - except for one thing: comparing different cameras with each other! So the "330" rating is good for one thing: it implies that the camera with such rating lasts about half what the "660" rated camera does. Nothing more. The DPReview.com staffers said that they're only providing this rating for comparison purposes when I pointed out that it was being used for disparaging certain Sony cameras.
Once I've gotten 3423 shots on a single charge of a battery rated for 1500 shots, with 24% of charge left to spare (don't remember what happened then - I probably kept shooting until the battery eventually kicked the bucket). Was that indicative of the day-to-day performance? Probably not because it depends on a thousand factors (that day I was mostly shooting long bursts and doing comparatively less on the spot reviewing). So don't fret over these ratings too much...
