    Ok now I can buy a d750

    • scott800

      lol, I’ve just had to make do with dng conversions last few months

    • I rented a D750 last weekend to test its Hi ISO performance and ordered a new one before I’d even brought the rental back. Yeah it’s that good. The cleanest ISO 6400 images I’ve ever seen. The first image was shot with a D 750 and the second with a D 600, same game, same lighting conditions, same lens.

      • Aldo

        Hey Richard, thanks for sharing these. Can you tell us more about the lens used and camera settings on these two photos? The d600 shot looks at least 1/3 stop darker.

        • Aldo, Good eye, a third of a stop. For the D 750 shot: ISO 6400, Nikkor 70-200 at 70 mm, 1/250 at F 5.6 For the D 600 shot: ISO 6400, Nikkor 70-200 F2.8 at 145mm, 1/640 at F4. I was shooting on manual so I’m guessing I accidentally thumbed the shutter speed dial when I was shooting with the 600.

  • zemper


    just in time for my D750 to arrive from shipping. life is good. 🙂

  • scott800

    I hope that the were able to fix the horrible develop module slider-scaling issues that exist on the 27″ iMac with retina display.

    • apollo

      I hope that they would be able to fix whole software. It’s heavy, slow, and lagging constantly, even with top notch CPU, RAM and HDD. LR5.6 is very unefficient when you look at the fact how much juice is sucks out of the machine. And even the fact that it can’t do GPU calculation is just…just lame. I’ve used Capture One Pro 8 for few days and it’s not a slow as Lightroom.

      So, if Adobe would read this, one sentence: Optimize it before you bring the LR6 out!!

      • TheInfinityPoint

        Same here! Running a 3770K OC’ed to 4.1 GHz, 32 Gb DDR3 RAM, and it’s still slow on my D800 files. My D700, D7000, and D5000 files are fast though (I like to run multiple time lapses simultaneously…lol). I built this machine 2.5 years ago so that it CAN handle D800 files quickly … guess it didn’t do much difference.

        • apollo

          D800 files are pain to edit with LR5.6. I’ve got the same issue…1200 files from single gig. In Develop module, the time loading time when you move from photo to photo is average of 6 seconds and when you do a 100% zoom, it’s at least 10 seconds. Everything is so frustratingly slow! And I even tried the difference with my friends 8 core system…it’s still painful to use even when it’s faster than my system but…still!

          • TheInfinityPoint

            I’ve found what helps is to have LR do a full res render while you’re importing. At least in this case it’s “loading” all of the files while you’re sipping but at least you don’t have to wait for it to load while trying to edit.

            • apollo

              It doesn’t help at all with me…and I think its’ better than I don’t sip all the time, unless I want to get wasted and pretty quickly 😀

  • tomm

    So this is why I had to always find my Tokina lens manually when correcting distortion. I thought it was a 3rd party lens thing.

    • tomm

      Scratch that, I still have to set the lens manually in LR. Good that I started using DXO for correcting optical issues.

  • jr456

    Can someone tell me what the last virtual version of LR is that I can purchase and what version of Adobe Raw it supports?

    Would love to have the ability to process RAW images from these newer cameras both in LR and exporting to PS but don’t want to move to the cloud just yet.

  • RxGus

    I wonder how Adobe did with reverse engineering the Nikon JPEG engine? The D750 JPEG coloring is absolutely fantastic. This is the first time I have considered using the Nikon software before lightroom import. I am just not sure that I can stomach the size of the TIFF files and having to do WB so early in my editing process.

    • jstevez

      I’m a Raw shooter and after reading some reviews I decided to set camera to JPG Fine and indeed the files looked really good. I might start shooting Raw+Jpg from now on.

      • Eric Calabros

        Having in-camera jpegs helps to match colors to what should be. LR ruin Nikon colors in red-pink ranges
        Its a quick test by David Fraser

        • RxGus

          Theoretically, you could create your own custom color matching in LR for the D750 to regain some of those reds.

          Skintones seems to vary a reasonable amount between the pictures too.

          • Yeah, that’s what I do whenever I get a new body–I I customize the color against a color checker chart across the ISO range.

            In my experience. the Adobe profiles are closer to real life than other software. Every once in a while, i download a C1 or DX0 demo, but they never quite nail the colors like Adobe. Adobe isn’t 100% accurate, but it’s close enough that it’s not a lot of work to get spot on. The others mangle colors in ways that take too long to decipher/correct.

            OOC jpegs have never been spot on for me. At least as tested under studio conditions (daylight balances strobes). The D7100 I have is closer than they used to be. And in general, everybody’s color response has gotten similar (Nikon’s reds used to have too much green/yellow and Canon’s reds had too much magenta). Still, Adobe produces the best color fidelity from raw. In my humble opinion.

        • dclivejazz

          Right, and oranges are also too bright and “glowy.” Changing WB also sometimes doesn’t seem right to me, but I can’t explain how.

          I like LR overall though. I just wish Nikon would actually collaborate with Adobe, as other Camera makers do, to make processing their files go more smoothly. Nikon’s own program is way too behind to use protecting it as an excuse.

      • Andy Aungthwin

        Yeah, I’ve always been amazed with people who say they shoot 100% RAW.

        When I point out that RAW+JPEG is almost always better because JPEG is a great starting point they think I’m from Mars or something. And most of the time if you’ve got the exposure nailed you are going to be lucky to get a RAW file processed using Adobe’s tone curves to look as good as Nikon’s own proprietary tone curves.

        Apart from this, having (small) JPEG files is also great if you want to experiment with stitching panos. If you only have RAW files, say 6 or 7, even the latest computers will struggle with creating panos., run inside Photoshop.

        • dclivejazz

          The main problem is RAW+JPEG runs through even more memory. Once people get comfortable with RAW, they often prefer what they can do with it anyway.

        • neversink

          I find that when I shoot RAW + JPG, I can always make the RAW pics better than the JPG pics, even if the JPG pics seem right on.

          • Andy Aungthwin

            Yes, that’ the point.

            But if don’t have a JPEG to start with how do you know when the RAW file is better?

            Using the default Adobe profiles are not a bad starting point but they are very rarely as good as the Nikon JPEGs which have that Nikon look as well as ADL worked in.

            Of course, if you are using Capture NX you don’t need a JPEG since the RAW files can give you any profile you want but we are talking about LR here.

            • neversink

              And too bad Nikon recently watered down its Capture NX software

  • Goran Kindwall

    Still no support for 1Nikon 10-100/4-5,6 VR. It was announced with the 6,7-13 and 32 in Feb 2013. Has it been forgotten by Adobe?

  • sperdynamite

    Man, I just picked up the 40mm Ultron. Wild that they finally got it it for a profile. It’s an amazing little optic, especially on film, but I like it on my Df too! Can’t say I’ve needed the close up filter yet but you can already get in pretty tight.

  • Carleton Foxx

    Is it safe to dive into Lightroom 5 now? I got my paws really burned by being an early upgrader to LR4….For the first several versions LR4 was really, really slow. So, is LR5 a mature product yet?

    • Well, Lightroom 6 should be coming in the next 6 months:

      • Carleton Foxx

        Well then, if they haven’t got the bugs worked out by now, they never will. Thanks!

    • neversink

      I’ve been using LR 5 since it was introduced. I found LR 4 to have a lot of bugs, but 5 is a big improvement. I also use Capture One Pro 8, and find their RAW image processor much sharper than LR, but LR5 has more sophisticated adjustment tools. Not sure why C1 images come out sharper than LR5? LR 5 is very stable.

      • Carleton Foxx

        Thanks. The early days of LR4 made me want to go back to processing my own film because it would have been faster.
        But it is interesting how each program has a little different strengths. You would think that since it’s all just math that the programs would all come out with the same result. But there you have it. Science meets art.

        • neversink

          I prefer film also. Darkrooms are much healthier!!!

          I have been working with both C1Pro and LR for quite a while.

          Here are some thoughts….

          * RAW processing appears sharper in C1 than in LR. Could it be that C1 pre-sharpens RAW images more than LR does? I don’t know.

          * High Dynamic Range correction works much better in LR than C1 – particularly highlight correction which often barely does anything in C1. LR has more sliders and you can go both ways, negative or positive on the graph. You can also fine tune lights and darks in the HDR tools in LR.

          * Colors seem more saturated in C1 and the saturation slider in C1 is overly sensitive compared to LR which I believe is easier to work with. LR also offers a Vibrance correction tool which C1 lacks.

          * B&W conversions seem to be good in both, though I admit I like the LR color modules for filtering b&w images in LR slightly better than those in C1. I actually migrated some images with the edits that I converted to b&w in LR into C1 — I then further edited these images in C1 and got the best results combining edits from both LR and C1. Silver Effex from Google’s Nik Software has the best b&w conversion but the most time consuming and one must export as a TIFF.

          * Heal and clone tool is much more sophisticated and right on the money in LR. Also the local adjustment tools seem to be more subtle in LR.

          * EXIF metadata is better in LR. I have had the dates my pics were photographed changed in C1.

          * Processing and then exporting is more sophisticated in C1 than LR

          * You can change the look of the image before adjusting in C1. This is great, but confusing.

          Those are some differences between the two programs I noticed. I am still up in the air. I love the sharpness from C1 so much more than I don from LR. But I think the adjustment tools in the Develop Module of LR is ahead in most areas than C1.

          So… I am still unconvinced that either is the solution and it is so frustrating that Nikon, which I use for most of my work, has abandoned their own professional software to a watered down version.

  • Mike

    Wait, why does the $4500 Otus need a profile? I thought it was the perfect lens sans autofocus, and is distortion free?

    • nwcs

      The placebo effect?

    • TheInfinityPoint

      It has heavy vignetting.

  • Anybody got the direct link yet?

  • raptorclans

    Noob question, how bout Photoshop… when will I be able to open the raw files for editing there? (NEF)

    • You can now. Just download Camera Raw 8.7 from the adobe web site.

      • raptorclans

        ooh is it? thanks for the heads-up… was using the beta one before this…

  • TheInfinityPoint

    Finally I can use the lens profile for my 20mm f/1.8.

  • Nunzio Prenna

    Am I the only one still having banding issues even after the fix?

  • Meier
  • Mr. Mamiya

    Capture One 8.0.2 with support for the D750 has been released, too.

  • Shawna Goad Shouse

    I down loaded the Lightroom 5.7 and 5.7.1 and the DNG converter and when I open LR and go to the file that holds the pictures shot with my new 750 still nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? please help.
