Camera, Lens, and Accessory Reviews

Thom's reviews of camera, lens, and accessory products are now scattered across several Web sites. Some folk say they have a difficult time trying to figure out where my reviews are, even though I've put them in easily predictable places (Nikon DSLR bodies on dslrbodies.com, mirrorless cameras on sansmirror.com, and compact cameras on gearophile.com). 

Since many of you asked for it, I'm putting up this page of links to reviews. This is one of those examples of "be careful what you wish for." I've written a lot of reviews, so this page is a long scrolling list. 

Current and Recent Nikon DSLRs
These reviews are maintained with current opinions and ratings.

Older but Still Recent Nikon DSLRs
Some of these reviews are in the process of being updated and brought over to the dslrbodies site. Ratings in these reviews were made when the camera was current and are thus are now out of date. Use my comments here instead:

Much Older Nikon DSLRs

Warning: these reviews have not been updated for a long time and reflect opinions that are now many years old. All of these cameras are easily outperformed by more recent cameras. This doesn't make these older models bad, it just means that their value is depreciating rapidly. Don't go by ratings that appear in these old reviews: the ratings in those reviews were made when the camera was current, and don't reflect where the ratings would be today. Also, see my ultimate upgrade page:
