About me:

D100 - love it
D200 - love it
D300 - love it
MB-D100 - bought it to make reselling the D100 easier
MB-D200 - bought it to make reselling the D200 easier
SB-800 - love it
Nikkor Lenses:
AF-S 12-24mm f/4 G ID-ED - love it
20mm f/2.8 - loved it but couldn't justify it
35mm f/2 - love it
50mm f/1.4 - love it, especially in good light
60mm f/2.8 Micro - sharpest lens in my collection
85mm f/1.4 - Amazing lens, just get one.
28-70mm f/2.8 - Very nice but I'm lusting after the new one
70-200mm f/2.8 VR - Same as above.
PD70X w/40BG drive - like it, it's really fast
Capture NX 1.3 and CS3 10.0.1
White Lightning X800 - like it
AB 400 - I use it as a hair light and like the light weight. Color consistency on mine at lower power settings is fine but power levels can fluctuate slightly.
Pocket Wizard Plus - love it
L-358 - love it
Elinchrom Style 300 and 600 RX - Love them but digital control doesn't stop them from fluctuating at lower power levels.
Gitzo 1228 - love it
Kirk BH-3 - love it
Al Jacobs Black Box x 2 - These things are just fantastic

On Picture Lake, Mt. Shuksan, Washington in the Lakes challenge (10 comments in total)

If people only knew how rare weather like this is at Picture Lake they would be giving points for patience :-) Getting there is no small feat, either.

Kent Johnson: Personally, I can't wait to buy one.

Why? Extreme backpacking/Mountaineering where every ounce counts but interchangeable lenses and image quality are desired. 60fps will be rather fun as well. The throughput of the expeed3 is also attractive. I assume write times will be minimal in the extreme. Shoots NEF so my workflow will only be impacted minimally.

BTW, I am a professional photographer with a whole slew of "Pro" Nikon gear. I certainly don't expect this camera to replace any of it.

60fps will be very useful when watching someone come off of a 35 foot ice fall, for example. Or watching a 500 pound rock zing by your helmet at 10,000' ASL. 10-30mm around the house and stick the 10mm on before heading out to the hills.
