Well DaveKona, my response to you:
I think cameras that are years old can produce as good an image as the ones you are hoping Nikon announces this week.
- I have a D700 and while it does produce amazing images, a D3S would produce better results, but I would like that IQ in a D700 form factor. Video would be nice too.
Why is everyone slathering at the mouth for camera models that have marginal tweaks to them? YOU ARE MAKING CAMERA MANUFACTURERS RICH WHILE ALL YOUR PROFITS GO TO THE NEWEST, MARGINALLY BETTER MODEL!
-Hey, its my money, if I want to spend it on a new camera, that is my perog.
Go out there and shoot your damn camera! You are buying in to this fkcing camera race that has been going on for eons! A newer model will not make you a better photographer (duh!!!).
- I guess you have a D70? Seriously newer cameras have benefits, read more about what gets updated and you will see. A D7000 will produce better results than a D200, even with the same sensor size. As tech gets updated, quality gets better.
I watch this obsession with what the damn C and N will release this week and I wonder how deep the hook has been set in your collective jaws. Shoot your camera and laugh at all the wannabees that need 128,000 iso or every 1.4 lens ever produced.....to set on their shelves and admire. Geez I wish I had an articulating lcd...........
- Obsession would be wanting an upgrade every year, but the D700 has been what, almost 3 years? And I own 4 f/1.4 lenses and none of them sit on my shelf, and I would love to shoot higher than 1600 ISO and get quality (but I don't want to pay for the D3S yet.
