More Black Gold

I really want to know how many of those will sell. Anyone that works for Ritz and other stores - please let us know.
If anyone is still in doubt: this is real and is coming to a store near you. Here are some more close-ups:

    That’s almost as ugly as a white colored lens.

  • Al

    there is no point to that. Who will buy a slightly gold D60?!

    You might be missing the point that this is Nikon’s first special edition DSLR every. This camera could be collectable or at very least hold a premium on the used market.

    Ha, you actually think that I can influence prices? Wow – this is cool. Let’s do something to bring the prices down.

    I suppose it goes with the gold lettering on the lenses, but even so, that’s pretty tacky.

  • nick

    not the end of the world. might actually work for nikon to release a camera that would appear diff from the pack.

  • Jovan

    Agreed. Nikon’s gold lettered lenses are tacky. They look like the marketing and graphics department got a hold of what is otherwise a fine piece of photographic equipment. Nikon’s “old-school” lenses are far better looking with more functional and READABLE markings. The newer labels and logos are meant for those that mount and never look at their lens again.

    Can you can get it with a lens encrusted with rhinestones? it is a little odd – aside from a collectable, it seems a bit cheesy and a strange use of resources. Outside of evil masterminds with “gold” in their names, it would seem to have limited appeal.

    I do wish your guy at Ritz or you not pass on information you get back to management. I gave you a heads up on the price of the Nikon 80-400 $1599.99 and that Ritz price was always $1699.99. That it was possible the change meant that a new 80-400 was coming out. I guess you passed that onto your guy because the next day the price went back to 1699.99. Thanks. Now it will cost full retail again.

  • Tom

    No I don’t think you can influence price. You did mention that difference in price to there normal price I would guess and more than likely your guy reported the error so up it went, correct?

  • Blog Admin

    I seriously doubt my guy would report it back – we have “one way communication”. Probably someone in their headquarter is reading this blog… sorry

    I would prefer mine pimped with an AF motor…

    I sent an email and did not post to blog. Oh well. I still enjoy the site.

    Did you try to send me an email or you were trying to post a comment? Please let me know because I am planing on changing my blog software and hosting provider and your feedback is important.
