You shouldn't have done that.

I also epressed my disappointment to them and was told that they have
to get the D3 in hand before they can build the appropriate "L"
plate. I placed my order for the plate a couple of months ago and was
asked to call again in two weeks time to check what's happening. Hope
I'll get the plate real soon!!

I wish you hadn't done that, Danny Brenner (aka Dan Brenner, Thebear, photokid, Bob Clide, Arnold Green, etc). Your record for inaccurate statements is so amazing that it's quite likely that your simple "hope" for a quick delivery will delay the delivery by months.

Back in April, you said the Canon 1Ds III will start shipping at $4000, quickly drop to $3800, then to $3500 after one year. (it's a few hours from December, and they're still $4500 at B&H).

The 1Ds III and 1D III will have identical AF systems, based on your inability to understand the difference between the "sensor" and the "system" of which the sensor is just one component.

The Nikon D200 will have the same sensor as the D2X and be 3fps, 5fps HSC (except that it really was 5 fps with no high speed crop, and a brand new 10mp CCD instead of a D2X 12mp CMOS).

You were getting a D2Xs for its buffer improvement over the original D2X.

But when people pointed out that they had exactly the same buffer, you changed your reason to wanting the high speed crop mask, as if that's an adequate reason to replace a camera.

What happened to that update of Nikon Capture 4.4 to handle D2Xs files?

Or your Capture NX prediction two days later?

Remember how you tried 4 times with the D2X announcement date, and got them all wrong, covering a 4 year span from Photokina 2002 to Photokina 2004.

3 different release dates for the D1 firmware (not only all wrong, but no D1 firmware was ever released, at all).

Normally, a signature this small can't open its own jumpgate.
