Nikon D810 Officially Announced

Here are the specs and enhancements in the Nikon D810:

Nikon D810 Announced - Nikon News - News - Front Page Posts - NikonForums.com

It's basically a D800 with a new CPU and the same performance enhancements that Nikon put in the D4s. It does go all the way down to ISO 64 (unexpanded) and ISO 32 (Lo1), which will be interesting. Same price at the D800E ($3296) and filterless.

Supposedly has a new sensor and with greater DR too. Resolution should increase if there is no filter on the sensor. The D800E actually has a AA filter which is optically cancelled by a 2nd filter. I'm thinking this new sensor is the one used in the Sony A7r but I could be wrong.

32 ISO? That'll make the film lovers happy, I'm sure.

Seems like a bigger update than I expected. think the low ISO on the D810 will compete against the performance of the 645z? Or is it just digital darkening of the photo without real world benefits?

From what we can tell so far, it's the same sensor, or at least the same basic sensor, perhaps tweaked in some small way, as in the D800. Given the performance of that camera, you'd wonder why anyone would consider changing it. Sony Rumors, of course, ignores the Nikon and refers only to the A7r.

This would have to be a contender for a 35mm sensor-equipped Pentax body, should Ricoh ever get around to it.

Nikon describes the D810's 36MP full-frame sensor as 'new' but it's most likely a revamped version of the one we've seen in the D800/E and the Sony A7R. Like the latter camera, the D810 lacks an optical low-pass filter for optimal resolution.

It's basically the same as a D800E, Adam, with enhancements. But I wonder if the senor is different. It has a base ISO of 64 now.

Interesting. I don't know that most folks who are happy with their D800s will be looking to upgrade, but Nikon needs to keep "fresh" cameras on the shelves and this should help.

It's not a Pentax?

The lowest reported ISO I have on the D600 is ISO50. DxO says ISO50 as well. That is the 'extended range' though. Are you saying the new "100" is now "64"?

That would be great... of course what Nikon claims is ISO50 is really ISO75...

That's not what the specs say. ISO 50 is an "extended" mode. That, IMHO, is not the base ISO.

I assume when it is in extended mode that there isn't an increase in dynamic range going from iso 64 to 32.
