  2. They all do, right out of the box.

    You're a Canon asshole, right?

  4. Then be aware that if our magazines don't get a D200 to test in January,
    some sort of fee awaits anyone able to send me top quality (good lens,
    high detail content into corners, etc) sample raw files.

    The very least on offer is a free subscription for a file to examine and
    not reproduce.

    Seems like Canada does't get the D200 so the USA can get them first.

    You ever seen a camera that didn't look good, right out of the box? ;-)

    And what's the downside to this?

    Would this mean you're an anti-Canon arse?

    Now, let's not get started with the Canon fodder jokes.

    Well, since you asked... the downside is that Nikon might be perceived as
    not showing support for a market that has continued to give them strong
    support. While sales of Nikon products may have slipped in other world
    markets, they have continued to do very well in Canada.

    Yeah, but where do you plug the battery recharger into your igloo?

  12. You seem confused by the size of Canada, the second largest country in
    the world. The majority of its southern border is approx. at the same
    49 degrees latitude as the northern edge of Paris/France, and its most
    southern latitude is similar to the latitude of the norther part of
    Spain and Portugal.

    I know all of that. It's just that Canadians are sooooo cute when they
    take mild offense! :D

    And NYC is the same latitude as Portugal. That only affects sunrise
    times, not weather conditions!

    Wouldn't know, I'm from the Netherlands (winters not cold enough for
    serious igloos ;-) ).

    Maybe you lucky Canadians won't have to bother with the first round of
    firmware downloads and battery recalls. Your glass is half full.

    That's ok, Canada, and the rest of the world, got the Canon 5D before the US
    did, so maybe Nikon's just trying to address the inequity.

    Amazing how digital SLRs have become like motor vehicles, with the
    better quality production units becoming available after production has
    been going on for a while. Yet despite that, clueless people rush to buy
    the latest model the instant it comes on the market.

    I suspect they won't send too many to Mongolia either.....

    The Canadian market, compared to the US market, is miniscule - no
    rocket science involved. You go where the money is - and that's just
    good business....!

    You left out the fact the the vast expanses of Canada are largely
    uninhabited except by the wapiti....!

    It's also instructive to learn that 90% of Canadians live within a
    hundred miles of the US border - gotta stay close to decent medical
    care and consumer products......:) And, one might compare total
    population instead of land mass.....:)

    The wapiti who are the greatest inhabitants of most of Canada don't buy
