Re: Nikon's PMA DSLR announcement

Hi Darell,

I'm afraid that won't happen. I think Nikon is going to release more AFS lenses, instead of putting a motor drive in its future consumer cameras bodies.

I don't think a D40 + in body motor will come out. I'd bet a D60 (sort of D40, with 10MP, but without in body motor).

I think that would make sense, since a 10 MP camera with in body motor would be too close to the D80.
And a D40 with in body motor would kill the D40 sales.

BTW, as an A2 owner, are you happy with the D40 ? Have you got any additional lenses ? What makes me hesitate is the loss of Anti-shake. Even if the high iso performance of the D40 is excellent, I know I'll miss AS in some cirmconstances, like indoors low light shots : churches, museums.
Regards
André
