Nikon 5700 - I am considering getting it

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Barry Rinehold, Dec 4, 2003.

  1. Considering getting the 5700. Prices have come down alot, they are
    now in my price range, with the $100 rebate. Thing is, and ain't this
    always the story. I am wondering what new model Nikon will be coming
    out with. In general, prices for digital cameras have come down - the
    range seems to be migrating lower, and I wonder what new features and
    improvements will be made when Nikon comes out with their new cameras
    in early '04. Guess I could wait a couple of months more. Maybe a
    manual focus ring, quicker low light focusing...hmmmm.

    At any moment the magic camera that meets your needs is likely to appear. In
    the meantime, find the one that misses the fewest of your target
    requirements. Cost of camera and accessories, finite. Cost of lost
    opportunities, omigod.

    I did! :)

    Came down to Nikon CP5700, Fuji FP S7000 and Minolta DiMAGE A1. Have used a
    5700, and now have just started to use the Minolta - So far, I'm coinvinved
    it was the right choice for me. No complaints other than the seller, and
    I'll post a "review" here and elsewhere when I've finally expended all the
    energy I'm willing to expend on "damage control."

    There are so many features in this model that it will take you a while to
    master them. If you have not mastered them, what is the point in buying the
    next version?

    Just Get It and shoot pictures to learn all the features. The manual is
    dense.

    One day after you take the plunge, one or both of the following will happen:
    1. Something better will be released
    2. The price will drop an what you just bought.
    This is a universal rule that applies to all hi-tech gadgets. You never win
    by waiting

    I have the 5700 and is an excellent camera, but.................... its not
    a real srl and its a bit slow in taking pics.
    I am going to sell it (not to you... lol, I live in Europe) and buy the
    Canon 330D which I think in usa is called Rebel. If I am a good boy I will
    find it for Xmas.

    not
    Good luck with all the added weight, lens changing complication, dust
    problems, and lack of live viewing that you will get with your "real slr".

    Jim...I'll post something in a few weeks. That will give my emotional
    response time to mellow...probably better than knee-jerk anger now. :)

    I would recommend a Fuji Finepix in the same price range.
    Fujis are awesome!
