    Just a quick note to those anxiously awaiting Nikon's response to the
    Digital Rebel. According to my Nikon rep yesterday there is definitely
    something in the works, but unfortunately she doesn't expect it to be
    announced until PMA. I guess that shoots Nikon's Christmas pretty well.
    Also found out, although not truly related, that the Coolscan 4000 is
    apparently out of production and has been for a while now. Oh well, guess I
    just wait some more.

    If nothing else, the'll need to drop the price of the D100 or they
    will see a sales loss.

    The price hasn't hurt sales so far, prices are based on supply and demand -
    and demand for the D100 is still strong. Besides, somebody who is wanting a
    D100 is in a different class than those wanting a 300D. Like the sign in
    the dime store said "We have no quarrel with those who sell for less - they
    know what their stuff is worth..."

    Not really, as those who already have Nikon lenses can't use them
    on a Canon camera, and selling Nikon lenses and replacing them
    with Canon lenses could be extremely costly. The number of people
    who want a digital slr and don't already own Nikon or Canon autofocus
    lenses may not be that large right now? Perhaps when digital slrs get
    down to the sub $500 price range, this will be much more of an issue,
    as there will be many more people who don't already own lenses who
    will want a digital slr, while others might be more willing to sell the
    lenses they have, and replace them with others.

  5. The rumor I'd heard was that they were planning a substantial improvement of
    some sort on the D100. That doesn't say much, but seems to imply that it's
    more an increase in capabilities than a reduction in price.
