  2. Yes!

    [ I don't know if I can afford the beast, and of course we still need
    to see some field tests. But I have it from one of the beta testers
    (a person whose judgement I trust) that the IQ of the pre-production
    models are outstanding. And I already have the lenses. ]

    Yeah, five grand's a lot of cheese. I think I'd rather apply it to a
    trip somewhere, where I can take pictures with the camera gear I
    already own...I think.

    No. Now I am waiting for the rumored D4. :)

    And where is the 27-300mm VR zoom to give you the 18-200mm DX
    equivalent? :)

    Rita gets three new super-zooms with VR to ruin her pictures.

    I'm guessing that Nikon will have a higher resolution FX camera in
    2008. (I like "FX." It is easier to type than "full-frame.")

    So now the Holy Trinity of lenses will be 12-24, 24-70, and 70-200.
    Anybody want my old 12-24 DX? Time for eBay!

    My old D70, which we still use, is gasping its last. The card slot is
    getting to be a bit chancy. Maybe it could be fixed; maybe not.

    I see little point in upgrading from the D200 to a D300. So, maybe I
    will just sit tight for awhile and wait for a D3x or whatever Nikon is
    willing to call it.

  7. VR/IS is great on long lenses and I don't find any problems with it. I'll
    be going with the 500/4L IS for starters. Funny thing is you don't see
    Nikon being stupid enough to put VR on the 14-24/2.8 and 24-70/2.8. I
    wonder why?
    No doubt.
    The 14-24 and 24-70 are really going to be sweet lenses. I have the
    17-35/2.8 and 28-70/2.8 and these are killer good lenses that make it hard
    for Nikon's new offerings to beat. Only way I'm going to upgrade to those
    two new lenses if they totally blow away my two older lenses. And it sucks
    that they don't have an aperture ring so putting them on the old 5D and Mk
    III is out of the question. I got the 70-200mm VR and I still need to pick
    up Canon's version.

  8. I expect there'll be at least a few variants on the D3 first.
    For 27-300mm equivalent, you stay with DX. :)
    Yes. But he or she will be happy anyway as long as they are big, heavy and
    very expensive. That's the main thing for Rita, not the pictures.
    I agree. FX it is, and I will write "full frame" no more. (Not that I had
    much reason to in the first place, being an ardent DX enthusiast.)
    That sounds good, but I think you mean 70-300 for that last, unless you're
    demanding f/2.8 in that range. If Nikon does bring out a 12-24 NX, then
    they'd better have an 8-16 DX or thereabouts too for the rest of us.

    Got one already.
    I'm waiting for the D90.

    Maybe I'll wait for that & get a used D3 then!
    More than 12MP & I'll need a seriously faster computer & storage.
