    Has anybody got some insight as to when Nikon is going to ship the next
    batch of D200 bodies?

    Could it be that the D250 or the D300 will be next, and there won't be
    any more D200 bodies?



    That could be marketing at its finest.

    Well...no.
    The D200 has only been for sale for about a month...

  4. That means there's *at least* another month before it's obsolete...

    Nah... Not with Nikon...
    Their product roll-out is slow as mollasses.
    -But since you did say, "at least," I guess you'd be technically correct.

    Actually, what I want to know is when am I going to be able to get my
    hands on a new 10.2MP Pentax *ist-D2?

    Perhaps you're just caught up in the Canon marketing machine?
    ;-)

    Nah. I've got my gripes about Canon, too.
    As for being caught up...I don't think so, since I'm still shooting with my
    10D...having passed up all of their new bodies since then...and not due to
    money issues. Canon has managed to get a lot of lens money during that
    wait...but my lenses will be around long after my 10D retires. :)

    I am keeping my eyes open for info on the 20D replacement, but it will have
    to be pretty slick to make me jump.

  10. Looks like I'll be calling B&H tomorrow to preorder the D300.

  11. And us film dinosaurs keep the camera bodies around and
    retire the lenses.

    I hope your 10D's retirement will be voluntary.

    It will be. More likely, it will become a backup body next to a +/-12mp
    update at some point. I still shoot with my EOS 3 and Elan IIe, though with
    diminishing frequency. I've "retired", sold, or given away my non-L lenses,
    save for two that I think are in the same league of quality: 50 1.4 and 100
    2.8 macro.

    I dunno. I think the Pentax DSLR line will stay branded Pentax. The
    digital P&S may become double branded; sold under both labels.

    And the announcement of the joint venture or whatever seemed to indicate
    Samsung would provide the sensor for a generation AFTER the *ist-D2
    (actually the next generation of AF-645D).

    Pentax hasn't actually said anything about a *ist-D2 AFAIK. I'm just
    hoping based on the Nikon D100 & *ist-D used the same sensor chip &
    Nikon's got a new 10.2MP camera using the same vendor's chip.

    So hopefully Pentax ...
