    wtf. 600?? really? i bought my d60 for 480.. wtf? Is this thing really gonna go for 600? Well, I hope its low light performance is on par w/ the d5000 rather than the d60.

  • It has ENDED!

    Well for now anyway. . . 🙂

    First, great job NR!

    Second, congratulation for Nikon and the Star Wars Kids.

    I mean, I just cannot believe that after 2 years, all Nikon can do is to add the video that does not even match the 5DII. Are these people insane? For crying out loud, at least match that one. I understand that there are quite few who is interested in playing with video on a DSLR but on a “pro” style camera for many is not priority.

    No question about it, I guess I am not the only one who is very disappointed.

      The only reason to bring out a 300s is to extend the production life of the 300 another year and whip up some Christmas buying.

      And the 70-200 is now “professional” once again, like the last one was a DX or something.

      Both new products also counteract the price erosion by getting prices back up to MSRP AKA the new product never sell below price.

      • On that point I notice that the new and improved 70-200mm lens is listed at about $2400. It seems to me that those people who primarily use APS-C format Nikon DSLRs might have a chance toi buy the older version significantly cheaper as it is cleared out. The lens was just fine on APS-C DX format Nikons from what I hear.
