State of the art is a bit of a stretch compared to all the new tech others are bringing to the market. Live view is junk, limited eye AF, optical viewfinder, no in-body image stabilization, no USB charging (have to carry a charger), useless silent shooting, terrible AF in video, now, more expensive than competitors...

It is certainly the best DSLR nikon makes... in 2017 it was amazing.

If you're looking to get into photography, there are much better options out there in this price range.

Don't listen to the naysayers, DSLR's are dead technology. Spend your money on a decent mirrorless ILC that fits your budget and needs.

Lol, no.

Most 8k video cameras are still VERY, VERY expensive.

The problem with answering this question is that 8K (or 4K, or 1080) is not created equal. 1080p out of an Alexa XT shot at 4:4:4 and processed through a pro-grade pipeline is probably going to look a lot better than cheap cameraphone 4K (almost always using a low bitrate). Resolution is informative, but the proverbial devil still remains in the details.

In particular, I'm recalling a presentation from a pro cinematographer that demonstrated how compression codec and bit rate have a much bigger impact on perceived quality for most viewers than pure resolution.

I really don't get why I hear that every time. There's a reason DSLRs are still preferred by most professionals right now. Mirrorless brings some interesting features (I seem to do OK without them though), but the EVF is just not good enough yet. Especially on cheaper mirrorless cameras. The mirror/prism doesn't represent reality, it is reality, and is preferred by every pro I know, and I know a lot. We pretty much all own a mirrorless or two, and are following the tech closely. I've been a full time pro for 7 years and semi for 9 before that. I have 3 mirrorless cameras, which are great for video (the features like focus peaking is great shooting video), but for stills? Not yet.

You sounds like a DSLR hater. Some of us prefer optical viewfinder, and you didn't mention any of the things this camera excels at
