    Note the mega prices....

    But if you photographers have not read the announcements, this is shaking the photo world with new products of high quality.

    Just a little time and the prices will come down as usual.

    The 1Ds Mk III has been rumored for two years. We were waiting for a 22 meg camera for under $10,000 so 21 meg for $8000 isn't bad. These are top end pro cameras but the tech trickle down will be in consumer cameras within 5 years. The rumor has it that the sensor has been ready for a long but the processor for all that data was the slow down.

    About time Nikon gave Canon some competition in the full frame market.

    I have to cheer for Nikon, because I already have too much invested in their fine lenses.

    Everyone will benefit from this newly competitive market. Now Canon is even more likely to reply in the spring with 5D Mk II, as this is one segment where Nikon has no entry, and it could strengthen Canon's position there, as I am sure Nikon is already working on it as well. They've proven now that they will fight tooth and nail.

    Well, I have some money saved for a lens. Suddenly I don't want that "lens" any more :rofl:

    I'm glad I bought my D200 when I did. supposedly being discontinued. the D300's lowest ISO is 200.

    one of the reasons I wanted the 200 was the lower ISO. not so much for the resolution, but when shooting sports with the bright sun overhead, ISO 200 was sometimes forcing me to use higher apertures than I wanted to, since my D50 maxed out at 1/4000.
