Tal Shachar: the man holding the statue is blurred, it would be more impressing if the photographer used narrow aperture so both would be in focus. Most photographer think that its always good to have the bokeh effect, but it really depends on the background.

and now my respond for the technology:
it seems to me that this technology will also be used for characters in 3d animated movies (maya, daz, poser,blender, iclone etc.) so in future animated movies you will not be able to tell if those are real actors or animated characters based on photos of actors

Maybe he didn't want to make YOUR picture, but one that he liked himself.

Sjakie1956: 1) Nikon presents the D300(s) as a semi-pro camera. If I would get $ 1,- for every D300(s) that is used professionally, I would never have to work again.

2) Nikon seems to have a name for the group of users for every type of camera:
- classic photographers (don't know what they use)
- enthousiasts (D600)
- high end users (D4)
- pro's (D800)
- amateurs (D3200)
- and finally the semi-pro's (D300)
The answer that you can't compare the D600 to the D300 is a hint that the D400 will come. If Nikon takes its customers serious, its impossible that will ignore a huge number of "semi-pro" users.

@Anastigmat:
1) You don't know my age
2) You obviously underestimate the number of D300(s) sold.

Today I was at the Photokina, the largest exhibition in the world of Photography.
Adobe wasn't there.............
Arrogance or ignorance?

cesaregal: I wanted from Lumix superzoom with:
1) sensor 4/3
2) RAW
3) LEICA lens f/2.8

You forgot: and for $ 50,-
Be realistic, this is a traveler-zoom camera, not a body builders tool.

Steve oliphant: These are great cameras the contrast and sharpness is outstanding .what a perfect travel camera ,they make very good stuff I sell them at our store and every body loves them even when the get bad pess do to not paying off the review sites,you can,t beat the Leica lens.

I don't work for Panasonic, I'm a professional photographer and I like them as well. Great cameras, great pictures, only you do have to know how to take a good picture. And that's where the problem is, people who can't take good pictures blame it on the camera.

Sjakie1956: I'm always so impressed that some people can place a negative verdict about a camera they have never seen, held, or seen results from it.
If you look at the quality of the camera's of today then it's very hard if not impossible to make huge improvements.
Take 5 top camera's, make the same picture and print it on 1x1,5 meter and I dare every "specialist" to see the difference at a distance of 1 meter. I'm sure that no one can tell with picture comes from with camera.
We all have preferences for one brand or another, but that doesn't mean that "not my brand" can't be good as well.

I own a small professional photo lab and in workshops I teach people how to set any camera so that you get a perfect balanced shot that needs no Photoshopping afterwards (in color and density). After taking pictures from a model I print the pictures on a Noritsu lab without corrections and believe me, no one can see which picture comes from which camera (and I'm doing this for quite some time).
Most characteristics in pictures are made afterwards in Photoshop and depends on the personal preferences of the person behind the screen and the quality of the monitor and how well it's calibrated.
If I take 100 random photo's made in DPreview tests from 10 different quality cameras there will be no one who can place the pictures with the right camera, except for a few lucky hits.

cbaphoto: I've had money set aside for this release for a damn long time, and I'm just not impressed enough to spend it now. I've loved Nikon products since I was a kid. I was expecting something a lot grander out of the D4. Not sure what exactly, but I know I'm not seeing it. Frankly, I couldn't give less of a sh!+ about video. They should release two cameras when they do these things; A great camera for videographers who wannabe photographers but they're too lazy to capture the damn shot the right way, and a great camera for still photographers who already know what they're doing behind the lens. The D4 reminds of working on my '77 Chevy versus my '00 Chevy: I'll bet they could really do something great if they ripped out all that extra crap and put in something truly useful to compliment the drive train rather than bogging it down. I'm sure the D5 will have a pretty ridiculous price tag on it, but maybe it'll be worth it. My money will just have to keep gathering dust for the time being.
