Put a Tesla in Ludicrous mode

Three image HDR in Photomatix Pro with the *Natural* preset. Removed many sensor spots. Applied the Kodak Gold 100 Warm preset from VSCO Film 00 but set grain to zero.

Then leveled the horizon and removed several lamp poles that I didn’t feel added value to the image.

Nikon Expectations by Thom Hogan (dslrbodies.com)

What to expect from Nikon in the short term

Nikon needed a DX mirrorless entry a year ago. They could have launched with only a couple of lenses and a lens roadmap and done just fine. Now they’re racing from behind. Far behind.

Nikon needed an FX mirrorless entry this buying season. One that deals with the D6xx/Df crowd and could hold serve against any upcoming Sony A7 Mark III. That, too, could have launched with a couple of lenses and a lens roadmap and done just fine.

So we’re about to see if Nikon has a miracle accelerator in their arsenal. Don’t laugh. Put a Tesla in Ludicrous mode and it will smoke any Detroit entrant so bad you might have time to walk out on the course to see if the gas eater is still coming. Technology can change the game.

If he’s correct, perhaps it’s a good thing my Nikon broke.
