As reported by Craig, the price of the Nikon D3 has drop as well: currently $4818.98 @ Amazon
The actual reduction is important, not the amount. Chump change? Why don’t you send me this chump change – just use the Amazon donation link on the lower left. Then I will believe you.
B&H also has a price cut: $4,819.95
That’s it? Why would anyone but anything else?! Chump change ha ha
Why is the price drop significant? Isn’t the rumored D700 supposed to be placed between the D300 and the D3? If that’s true, I can see dropping the D300, but why the D3?
will this also imply….furthur price drop on the d300?or is that my wishful conscience speaking in my own head. haha
It is significant, because it could mean that D3x is coming soon.
Gotcha. I was only thinking in terms of the D700.
No problem – the D3x kind of went on the back burner with all the D700 activities, but is still not out of the picture. Let’s don’t forget also the D90 – the D80 is out of stock in many authorized dealers. Are we going to see all of them next week? I doubt it, but definitely by the end of the year (Photokina).
That was very sarcastic. Ha ha. I can’t imagine spending 5 grand on a body. I hope someone else pulls through on the 5k donation.
