    hey nobody interested in the price of Nikon mirrorless :) just for comparision Nikon D850 MRP is 254000 and nikon D750 MRP is 126000.

    Just putting the comparable prices so nobody says Nikon has overpriced them :D

    Nikon Z7 body - 269000

    z7+24-70 - 314000
    z7+adapter - 281000

    z6 body - 169000
    z6+24-70+adapter - 226000
    z6+24-70 - 214000
    z6+adapter - 181000

    ^ So, they have announced pricing for Indian Market. In line with Japan pricing.

    Pricing is too much, esp 50mm. There is no lens around ~10k like 50mm f/1.8 (F mount lens).
    x-----------------------------------x-----------------------------------x​

    Canon DSLR can use Nikon F mount lenses using adaptor and there are adaptors available. The difference between two mount's flange distance is 2.5mm. If this is possible, Sony/Nikon could adapt RF lenses. :Fingerx:

    Good news is that panasonic leica and sigma will have same mount..i think more companies should join hands like fuji, olympus togather

    More mount less choice for consumer..let there be competition like sd card or usb standardisation

    Yeah, it's costly $3000. But, it's good to see some innovation.

    BTW, got GoPro Hero 7 Black delivered today :bananana:

    Its essentially a full frame camera, so the price is according to that

    Hi,
    I want to get into the Photography game in the next year or so.
    What is the best beginner DSLR ?
    The Nikon D3400 ? What kind of moolah should an absolute beginner be expected to spend ?

    Welcome @Nerevarine ...

    I would say first be very clear what you want to achieve in Photography ..blindly going for DSLR is not worth anymore.
    if you really have that enthusiasm to travel and lug around 2 KG of photographic gear then you decided right :D
    I have seen most people leaving photography after shooting with Kit lens for a year after initial enthusiasm drops.
    Most reasons - heavy, additional bag to carry, costly lens, kit lens not enough for birds, hassle of changing lens every now and then.

    if your interest is just good quality photographs then better go for RX100II or Panasonic FZ1000 which will cover a lot.
    If you have the patience and enthu to get inside then you are most welcome in this world :)

    landscapes, portrait and macro. Not aiming for fast action (birds)
    I want to practice using the stock 18-55 lens first, before moving on to the higher end ones.
    I am interested :
    enthusiasm to travel and lug around 2 KG of photographic gear then you decided right

    Let me know all entry level DSLRs with their pro's and con's.
    Im not buying now, will start buying body + 18-55 lens sometime within next 4-5 months. Will move to better lenses afterwards..

    Never thought I'd see a day where Sujoy recommends mirrorless

    Welcome to the madness buddy, you'll realize that you can start photography even before you get your camera. Tons of amazing phone photographers out there. Start getting the basics right, read up on the web (digital photography school), check youtube (adorama) and start experiments on instagram. That'll give you an understanding of what you'll want in the camera you get
