JWest: For a moment I misread that as "Canon launches $55 flash trigger". I nearly had a heart attack.
Canon or Nikon releasing anything for $55 would tend to give most people a heart attack. If it were to carry their logo it would most likely be $555.00
Wonderful images -- hard to imagine as peaceful as everything seems that in a few short months from when these were taken that World War II would start.
I hope you guys make a million and prove me wrong, it seems to me that the initial order ought to come with more than 1 lens cover tab. 5-8 might be more like it. At $5 per additional lens cover tab, let's see that would come to $65 to take care of all my lenses. Price is too high for me. jmho By the way will the tab fit between the Nikon center pinch tabs cause thats right where the Nikon embossed logo is? May have trouble sticking there.
Perhaps this is way to test the waters, he knows that there is a strong contingent of Nikon/Canon users waiting for a D300s/7D upgrade. It seems that both Canon and Nikon are dragging there feet in regard to the high-end APS-C follow-on products. Throwing the D600 and the 6D out there prior to the 7D and D300s upgrades may have been part of this testing the market of a FF upgrade path for high-end APS-C bodies. I don't think either cameras made a big enough bite into semi-pro users to give either company a clear indication as to what will happen if they abandon their current semi-pro lines. They also have to consider the investment customers have in EF-S and DX glass, suddenly that market will drop out for the current owners. I do think that the sales of the 2 new FF's was not met with as much gusto as they had anticipated, nor did a sufficient number of 7D/D300s users switch to them. Neither company wants a marketing blunder and each are hoping for the other to make the first move
