Re: Wait 24 hours...

Well Fuji have been very successful with retro cameras with dials and buttons.

I reckon Nikon will sell loads of these to over fifty year old males!

Not that I am one, but what's wrong with 50 year olds looking for "modern nostalgia". Or with a company trying to make money? There are plenty of 50 year olds (and even 20, 30, 60, & 70 year olds) with healthy bank statements who find this camera beyond attractive. To each their own. We really don't need more than a Smart Car to get around. Yet people buy WRX's and on upto Maybachs to get from point A to B. Maybe, and here's a crazy notion, it's not all about the end result, but about the experience too. Even as someone who never shot with a pre-90's SLR, I see the appeal of knobs and switches. People have been asking for a more elemental shooting experience but with a digital capture. Here it is. Buy it or don't, but the price bitching is already old.

spot on post sir, its not about someone's age, its about their bank balance and their wants.

I want one, but my bank balance says I can have one, simple.
