I don't dare speculate what this means for Nikon. Last time I did that I was threatened with a ban.

Balster4u: hmmm Mars ... red planet. Hey! NASA (Not A Straight Answer). Where are the color photos? The first color photograph made by the three-color method suggested by James Clerk Maxwell in 1855, taken in 1861 by Thomas Sutton.I mean its only a 5 year old camera , com'on pls.. surely you had color photos.

> NASA has big budget surely they could afford a color cam

You'd better get on the phone to NASA to let them know bady they've failed by landing those robots on another planet with cameras that don't meet the requirements that exist only in your head.

Curious doesn't pay the bills.

Colour imaging is not required for navigation. But then you knew that already didn't you?

Kudos to DPR for providing the update though.

@spikey27: whatever that 'sarcastic' comment was supposed to mean... I think Calumet are lying. Clear enough for you?

It can do that on its own time then.

Either the entire workforce is lying about not getting paid, or Calumet is.

I think the workforce are in a better position to say whether or not they have been paid than anyone else.

Why can't journalists just obey the law?

endofoto: D7500 looks as good as D7200 in terms of DR. Why decrease megapixels from 24 to 20. D7500 DR performance looks 10 timed better than D5 and a9 by the way. I think this is for high ISO performance.

> Why decrease megapixels from 24 to 20.

Interesting question...

> D7500 DR performance looks 10 timed better than D5 and a9 by the way

Maybe you have just answered it.

@s1rf4n: I wasn't aware that an interest in photography was required. And for your information, 2 years after paying off my mortgage I've moved on to other things. Try reading and understanding.

@glokenpop: You're right... well, I'm the fiscally conservative type anyway. I'd much rather have money in savings / investments than spend it.

I paid off my mortgage 2 years ago.

Hence the use of the past tense 'paid off mortgage'.

It's not complicated.
