    I saw d750 video and learnt that the grip is indeed deeper than d610/600, is it beeter to hold now?
    Sometimes i feel than d600/d610 grip is not comfort to hold for long hours, especially with heavy lenses.

    in my big hands, yes it is now more comfortable to hold in comparison to my D800. But saying that any camera with heavy lenses will not be comfortable to hold for long hours at a go.
    But yes the ergonomics is better.

    Thanks to confirm the ergonomics aspect.

    This sounds interesting. Any comparison between the D750 and D4S with this new AF system?

    I don't have enough experience with both cameras to make a knowledgeable comment, best to go to the I AM FULL FREEDOM event and try it out side by side
    do let us know what you think

    Hi Ortega,

    Any idea if both kits (24-120mm & 24-85mm) available in SG ?
    Is the Nov date firm or its a conservative estimate ?

    From some googling,US/Japan will start shipping the kit Mid-Oct.
    I'm traveling to Japan mid-Nov, really hope to get the 24-120mm kit 2 weeks before my trip.
    Else have to get it in Japan (will lose the Warranty for the Body then)


    Tks

    If I am not wrong you will be able to ask Nikon staff about that at their event

    is it worth it to buy a kit with 24-120mm the only all-in-one lens in the market seems to be the 28-300mm which is around 1.2k

    it really depends on your preference of lens
    if it was me, i would choose the 24-120 as i normally do not use up to 300mm and I prefer wider
    it is cheaper when sold together as a kit

    I rented the D750 for a play last weekend. My experience wasn't really that good on it. Main issue was focus accuracy on taking human subjects. While focus was deb snap on non-human subjects, focus was inconsistent when taking human subjects. I take humans most of the time so critical focus on the eyes is very important to me. Somehow this camera cannot nail it. And there is this condition where it performs pretty badly on humans under yellow light/environment/atmosphere. Focus was out most of the time. Perhaps it was the set that I rented had issues... Oh yes, something pretty annoying--LCD monitor color balance. At default, did you find images on the LCD screen bended on the reds/magentas? Had a hard time trying to calibrate to the correct color as what my eye saw...

    I went on 2 trips with the D750, compared with my D800 the D750 is more forgiving
    I can be more sloppy with my shooting technique
    I can be more lazy and not use my tripod
    High ISO noise is better
    Dual SD Card slots rocks
    Smaller files mean less cards to bring, battery life goes way pass 1000 shots per battery charge
