Nikon are the hallmark of engineering prowess. In terms of IQ they have been beating the competition for the last half decade, or so. There are 9 Nikon cameras in the DXO top-20 and Nikkor lenses typically get raging reviews. So why the company has been scrambling around new product strategies, recently, and why have the shares dropped off so dramatically? The answer is as simple as complicated.
With the D700 now being fazed-out, semi-pros and advanced amateurs are left with two full-frame cameras to choose from in Nikon’s mid-range price bracket, the D800E and D800 costing $ 3.300 and $ 3.000 respectively, while the D600 will set you back $ 2.100, a premium of $ 400 over the aging D300S APS-C camera. Even in the absence of independent tests of the D600, it is interesting to compare it against the D800, to figure out how much more camera $ 900 buys us, and ask ourselves if it is worth spending the roughly 50% extra.
I am not going to nag about how my search traffic has dropped off to virtually nothing. I'm sure I deserve it. One can hardly pretend to know better than a couple of hundreds of Google engineers, right?

It's been almost a year since I wrote the original article on the notorious EN-EL3e False Low Battery Warning (FLBW), and I am still not aware of any official responses from Nikon on this issue. After an extensive review of suggested solutions by users here and on other forums, here are some ideas that might work for you.
Can I use manual focus lenses on my Nikon DSLR? Yes, you can! Virtually all Nikkor lenses produced since the introduction of AI in 1977 can be mounted and used on virtually all Nikon cameras produced since 1977.
