I got the D200!! Hurray!!!

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by Thomas Herter, Dec 16, 2005.

  1. ....the brochure that is.

    I notified Nikon weeks ago that I am leaving for a trip. Its either
    the D200, or I go Canon. They responded with all doable in their
    power to keep me a Nikon user and to bring back some spectacular
    aerial images from Tahiti: they send me in a brochure. In high
    gloss. I can press all buttons I like, I do not need any battery
    and no any CF card.

    Thanks! I give up, I just ordered a Canon, the wait time is over.
    I got to pack my stuff...

    Merry Christmas!


    PS: The EOS-5D's go on eBay for 2600-2900. Its up to 27% price drop
    since the introduction, and Canon Canada dropped its prices anyway.
    Just as I expected and predicted. I await the EOS-5D to be at a
    $1500-1800 level in 2-3 months, where this device should have been
    in the first place.

  2. Let's see, you're bitching because you couldn't get a camera that isn't yet
    available for sale. I guess that makes you somewhat of an idiot.

    God bless you Thomas. I bow humbly to you. You make it that much easier for
    me to get my hands on one when they are in stock!

    Thanks again,

    Yeah, but he told them he was going on holiday, and they just refused to
    move up their release date to fit in with his holiday schedule. Have they no
    respect for their customers?

    He's not a customer. He said he's "just ordered the Canon".

    He's simply reached his limit of patience...waiting around through Nikon's
    molasses-speed of product roll-out.

    You have to admit they're pretty dang slow on the draw.
    On the other hand...Canon can be legitimately criticized for faulty
    roll-outs and early bugs.
    On the third hand...Nikon is losing market share to Canon, and they'd better
    pick it up a bit.

    Surely there's got to be a happy balance between the two somewhere...

    The ultimate and very best solution for Nikon & Canon shooters is to
    stick with film!

  11. Interesting, I recently spoke with a service rep, and he mentioned that dealers that get caught on eBay and such (with new releases
    like the EOS-5D) get axed. All in good benefit to the consumer.

    Ok I am confused, if you think the 5D is going to be at $1500-$1800 in
    2-3 months (it will not by the way) then why did you order a Canon
    camera now, why not wait 2-3 months and get a cheap 5D?

    Because he's going on vacation and all of his cameras mysteriously broke
    down, of course!

    If memory serves, he's got a vacation scheduled in Tahiti & wanted the
    new camera to take with him. Nikon wouldn't accomodate him by moving up
    the release date of the D-200 or by jumping him ahead of the release date.
