Thom Writes More Six Word Reviews

A few of you tell me I write too much or are too long-winded in my descriptions of products. So every now and then I take a stab at writing concise, pointed, six-word reviews. And yes, a bit snarky. 

Here’s the latest edition:

Nikon D3400: Almost a D3300, but with SnapBridge

Nikon D500: Better than D400 but no flash

Nikon D810A: Canadian D810 has you seeing red

Nikon D5: Flagship Renewed with far better focus

Nikon DL 24-85: Great product launch with no product

Nikon DL 18-50: Best product launch with no product

Nikon DL 24-500: Decent product launch with no product

Nikon KeyMission 80: Worst modern camera idea this year

Nikon KeyMission 270: A GoPro without the mounting accessories

Nikon KeyMission 360: Nikon looks behind you, sees little

Nikon SnapBridge: Poorly made bridge, not very snappy

Nikon WR-T10: Worst named wireless remote control ever

Nikon SB-5000: SB-910, radio and air-conditioning now standard

Nikkor f/1.8G prime set: Better than the f/1.4 prime set

Nikkor 105mm f/1.4E: A Zeiss-like lens at Zeiss prices

Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8E VR: VR is bigger and more expensive

Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G VR DX: Everything you’d want supports few bodies

Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6: Massively lowers 200-400mm f/4 resale values 

Canon EOS M5: Catching up to the Sony A6000

Canon 5D Mark IV: More of the same, so good

Canon 1Dx Mark II: Flagship Renewed, bit more of everything

Fujifilm XT-2: Great mirrorless; still not a DSLR

Sony A6300: Wonderful performance in still marginal body 

Zeiss Batis: Classic designs rethought, though OLED unhelpful
