So happy Nikon made a Pro DX body. Now I finally have a Pro DX body to use with all those Pro DX lenses that they made!

;)

in marketing speak, "co-engineered" means a Leica rep flew over and they have one face to face meeting

Retzius: The cheap nifty 50 is a great idea to get more people into the system.

The 70-300 seems outrageously priced when you consider the price of the DSLR alternative.

It may be a "G" lens but it doesn't even have a distance scale...

The ironic thing is that I was a long term D200 user that patiently waited YEARS for a D400/D500 until one day, after almost 300k clicks, the D200 finally started having issues. At the time (end of 2014), with no D400/D500 in sight and with Nikon being ridiculously tight lipped about any possible replacement, I caved in a bought a D7000 at the fire sale price of $499.

Much to my surprise the D7000 is great and serving my needs well. Now, if I have to upgrade in the future I will likely get a D7200 because I have adjusted to the body style.

Moral of the story:

Nikon shot themselves in the foot by abandoning the Pro DX segment for so long that by forcing them to the D7k series they gave up many potential sales of body upgrades along the way. If Nikon had behaved like any rational company, I would have purchase the D400 (had it been released) when my D200 gave out and would have likely purchased the D500 after release.

Looks like ISO 400 on my good old Nikon D200 :)

So Nikon recommends DX lenses with its professional level DX camera (the D500) and then doesn't make a professional level DX lens lineup.

Ok then

Retzius: Will they release a pink one and call it the QT?

They could include a Hermes bag, a Gucci wrist strap, and a LV lens cloth and sell the package for $9999; at select boutiques only.

If tried to 'get a life' at a Leica store but it cost 5 times more than everywhere else...

Who's Ming?

Ming the Merciless from Flash Gordon? I guess in that instance I would care.

Im surprised Leica hasn't released a "special edition" of this camera yet. Surely, some hitherto unknown Chinese holiday has passed without this camera getting a special presentation box and certificate of authenticity....

LOL for $2400 you still need to buy the lens hood separately?

that makes my day :)

Does it come with the 2016 edition of "How to Hipster" and instructions for tying a man-bun?

If so, I'm in.

A variable aperture telephoto zoom with VR! Groundbreaking ;)

Perhaps Nikon could add a menu option where the camera connects to wifi and checks to see if it has been recalled or has a service advisory?

;)
