Re: guess another wrong rumor, that was expected. (nt)

Nippon Kogaku, K.K., or Japan Optical Co., was formed on July 25, 1917, by the merger of three small optical firms, one of which dated back to 1881. They began with some 200 employees and eight German technicians who were invited in July of 1919 and arrived in January of 1921. They were actually an optical firm and not a camera manufacturer, therefore, their beginnings parallel those of Leitz and Zeiss, who also began as optical manufacturers.

call me old fashion

I simply prefer the good old technique of writing dates on pieces of paper, throwing them in the air, and see which one hits the floor first.

Compared to the darts: it needs more preparation, and clean-up afterwards, but the method is both quieter and safer.

There was a review somewhere that compared the 2 methods. I can't find the link anymore, but the bottom line is that for all practical purposes the accuracy is pretty much the same.

YMMV

I think that if you believe that any Canon camera will give you a better image than what you shoot now, you should sell everything for a great loss and make the switch ASAP.

Then when the new Nikon is released you should turn around and sell all of your Canon equipment for a great loss and switch to Nikon.

Re: D3 on June 26th???

May be that is why there is the odd 1.1 crop factor. A future Nikon top of the line camera will have a full frame and the D200 class will inherit the 1.1x crop sensor.

Whatever sensor will be introduced with the D3 will
hopefully be available in a camera costing much less in the future.
If not, there is always the EOS 5D.

I would wager that this is a safe bet, but ONLY after the d3 sensor
costs have come down (and even possibly trumped by it's future
successor).

Cheers,

Re: D3 on June 26th???

Canon is only better at high ISO.

I like the feel and layout of Nikon cameras over any Canon I've hand the opportunity to test. Both Nikon and Canon make great cameras. I'm in no hurry to switch to Canon but I do wsih Nikon would come out with a new camera soon. I love my D2Hs. I just want a few more megapixels and the same or better high ISO performance than the D2Hs.

Re: Wait

I'm patiently waiting. Hopefully we will have some good news from Nikon soon.

I actually love my D2Hs as is. I just need a few more megapixels sometimes......LOL.

Switch to Canon. I can do you good prices on your Nikon gear ...

Seriously, how can anyone answer such a question when the new Nikon is but vapourware with no confirmed specs.

Re: D3 on June 26th???

Thanks for the offer but I think I'll hold on to my Nikon gear for a while yet. I knew if I said the "C" word in here I would get a few replies. Nikon will surely announce a new camera sometime this year or next year or the year after.......LOL. I'm off to Hong Kong tomorrow. Too bad there was a nice new Nikon out that I could buy while I was there. Oh well.....maybe next time.

I meant to say too bad there wasn't a nice new Nikon out.
