Re: D700 leak

Holy s* ! Just thought I'd check the forum for any news before going to bed, and I come across this doosy! I have to say, if this is an elaborate hoax, then I'll be damned, as that is just too much material to bother faking. I've been holding out for a cheaper FX option over the D300. If this could get down to $2500, I'll be really happy.

Re: D700 leak

Looking quite legit to me but the 3rd picture of the two bodies cap (reminding me of the old D200) gave me concern although jcmarney on this forum gave an explanation of this.

Hope it is real and Nikon avoid any of the problems we have had recently with Canon and Nikon DSLR's introductions like DBS, 1d Mk 3 dodgy AF.

Looks like we have 3 PCE lenses (2 we already known about) another Micro lens and a SB-900

Bit surprise that no mention of the other lens that need updating and optimising for the FF like 300 F4, 80-400 and 70-200 afs vr.

Hopefully next we will see the other rumoured DSLR's D90 and D3x coming at the same time that would knock the mighty Canon for sure.

Me personally I will hold off a D700 for bit until lauunch price falls, any problems found and fixed plus my big biggie buy some more quality glass first on the Nikon side like 24-70, 14-24, etc.

Re: If this is real, it's poorly written (nt)

"Image depth that is simply not possible with lesser cameras" - has Nikon ever written something like that? "Lesser cameras"? Also (in the AF section) - "tack-sharp". Has Nikon ever written "tack-sharp"? I don't think so. Both sound more like dpreview slang.

Where did you see info about the SB-900?

Fake

There is no doubt, there will be a full frame camera in a smaller body this year. But some of the stuff posted must be fake. I had the same thoughts as Basil this morning:

"Image depth that is simply not possible with lesser cameras" - has Nikon ever written something like that? "Lesser cameras"? Also (in the AF section) - "tack-sharp". Has Nikon ever written "tack-sharp"? I don't think so. Both sound more like dpreview slang.

And I can't believe the name of the cam is D700.

I noticed that too, very clearly a fake. Funny that people spend time to create these stupid fakes.

Nikon will have to change the naming of consumer dSLRs in 5 yrs or so since they run out of numbers (or need to use numbers like D71 and so on).

Re: Agree

The screw covers for the flash sockets are what clearly show its faked - Nikon introduced the new slide covers for the D3 and D300 - and then go back to using the old screw covers for their very latest model - I dont think so.

Nikon have used some of this terminology before.....

'The industry-acclaimed infinity optics - the CFI60 system - successfully deliver long working distances and high NA and produce tack-sharp aberration-free images.'

Getting interesting huh

in fact they have used *all* of this terminology before

'A comprehensive series of O-rings and other specialized seals, combined with additional engineering, keeps you shooting when lesser cameras would fail.'

See what a little research gets Basil.....

Re: Nikon have used some of this terminology before.....

third picture is no good. the prism is definitely not large enough to house a FF sensor (compare it to a D3 prism).

also, the guy said these pictures were taken with a camera phone, but camera phones dont have flashes. where is all the glare coming from?

Camera phones definitely have flashes. Mine does and it's 2.5 years old.

Most credible rumour so far

Don't know if it's true, but a few of the facts are illogical enough to make this rumour credible.

1) The name. D10 would make sense. FX100 would make sense. But D700??? No serious faker would come up with something that stupid.

2) The MP count. The new FX camera is going to compete with the imminent 24 MP Sony and the Canon 5DII, which is expected to be 14–16 MP. Most people expected Nikon to come in somewhere in betweeen.

3) The pro specs. Pro build qualty (from what it seems), same excellent sensor as D3, same AF system as D3. The camera is basically a lightweight D3 at a much lower price ($2995!). Impossible? Yes, according to some of the forum experts. Not impossible at all, if you ask me. By the way, the D3 price is likely going to drop significantly after the D3X is announced, provided that the X has enough speed to do what the D3 already does.

Regards
Lasse

PS. What forum would be appropriate for this camera?

didnt know that.

still, the prism is too small. and the text looks like it came from a brochure for the D3 and was altered to say the D700.
