Nikon D850 DxOMark sensor review: the first DSLR to hit 100 points

DxOMark published their sensor review for the Nikon D850 and as I already predicted , the D850 is the first DSLR camera to hit 100 points (click for larger view): “The introduction of the first BSI sensor in a full-frame Nikon DSLR with a super-high 45.7Mp resolution puts the Nikon D850’s image quality on par with, and often better than, medium-format cameras. The first DSLR to hit 100 points — rather apt for Nikon’s hundredth anniversary year — puts the Nikon D850 in a class of its own for image quality. At base ISO, it’s unrivaled for color in the DSLR class, and its headline dynamic range score is outstanding, too.

Cheap speed: Yongnuo YN 50mm f/1.8 lens for F-mount review (with Nikon 50mm f/1.8G comparison)

This review of the Yongnuo YN 50mm f/1.8 lens for F-mount ( $72.50 ) and comparison with the Nikon 50mm f/1.8G lens ( $216.95 ) is written by  www.shuttersinthenight.com : Yongnuo , initially famous for their incredibly affordable flashes and off-camera triggers, caused quite a stir when it moved into lenses, for two reasons: (1) They came out at unheard-of price points, some below $100, and (2) they were, at least externally, blatant copies of existing Nikon and Canon designs.
