Happy New Year!

Another year has passed and this is the time when I thank all readers for continuing to follow NikonRumors. In 2010 we beat all records from previous years: 3,919,159 absolute unique visitors from 226 countries/territories generated a total of 27,379,445 pageviews! The [NR] blog now has a total of 1,538 posts with 96,438 comments. The NikonRumors Forum that was launched year and a half ago now has 4,230 members that created 49,868 posts in 2,499 topics. Did I mention the 18,785 Twitter followers?

For all of this, a big THANK YOU for being a [NR] reader! When I started this site 2.5 years ago I could never imagine this to become such a popular web hub for all things Nikon. Without your tips, comments, guest posts, forum moderation and participation, I couldn't have made it.

The top 10 most visited posts for 2010 are:

    Happy New Year to NR…AND young man who runs this site…What is your own rumor about the new D4…D800? IS this happening in April? May? My Nikon D300 is still a great lil camera…but I need a Pro Camera. Thanks..and I have truly enjoyed my time here.

    Happy new year Admin! Back to work on Tuesday and I need my daily fix!

  • D

    Yeah, Happy New Year. One year older and one year closer to death.

    Anyway, only 2 things I want to hear about in 2011 and it better be asap.

    D300 replacement
    80-400 replacement

    This is all I care about this new year.


    • Ronan

      D300 replacement is the D300s.
      80-400… seriously? Ok…


      • D

        Come on man. A replacement is a new camera with new sensor and new features. the D300s is just a slight update and not a new replacement (D400).

        Yes, a new 80-400 or 100-400 is needed as not everyone wants and can spend $6000-12,000 on a 300mm -600mm lens.

  • Ronan

    Happy New Year everyone!!!

  • Thank you for your great work, admin! Happy New Year everyone.

  • Palomino

    Happy 2011!

  • Matt XVI

    It is us who thanks you Admin! You’ve done a great job!

    A very Happy New Year to you, your fam and the whole Nikon community!



  • I’d like to pass on my greetings to everyone, but as this is a Nikon related site I will be publishing my New Year’s greeting in or about the 2nd quarter, possibly.
    In the meantime, feel free to speculate what the message may or may not contain ( although I’m quite happy to use last year’s greeting as it still seems to do the job ).


  • chuck

    And in 2011, all I want from nikon is a c0ver for my fancy new BM-11.
    Happy New Years!

  • Denko

    Happy new year to all and let Nikon quality soar higher and better in 2011 with many new products that we can all salivate at.

    Ooops got carried away there for a bit 😀

    Back to my D7k, over and out.

  • Annatar

    Happy New Year to you too! And thanks for being such a measured and thoughtful individual when it comes to screening the many rumors you must receive each day. I love visiting this site and seeing what the latest happenings are in Nikon World…I hope this site earns you millions!

    Happy New Year to NR admin and NR readers !
    Great going NR admin , I’ve been reading [NR] from past few months and much of the news has been spot on ! I got my D90 2 months ago so won’t be seeking out a D7000/D400/D800/D4 anytime soon, but [NR] is so interesting, I’ll stick around reading even though my next DSLR is a long time away !

    Keep up the good work !

  • FM-2 fan

    Let us hope for a great 2011 – after all the lens we can surely expect cameras. The question remains however: what will it be? That is, why we need the NR site. Otherwise we would possibly buy the last samples of D3X and would be surprised by the news.

  • kick ass!!!!
    fuc yeeah.
    comin atcheayeahhaaaaa!

  • Dear Admin,

    Congratulations! Cheers to a better 2011!!!

    Please get back to work tomorrow. I’m missing my hourly fix.
    And what about the Nikon D400, D800 and D4?

    Best wishes for the new year!

  • Singapore 🙂
    I don’t think everyone will see what Admin posted, so it’d be better to start a post on this…

  • Grumpy Smurf

    How about some REAL love, Admin, and cut 1/2 the dubious ads.
    You’re a source of malware and enough cookies to choke a certain blue muppet.

    With all those pageviews you’re making plenty of money, and can well afford to switch to more “classy” ad providers.

    • Ren Kockwell

      Crawl back under the slimy, canon-shaped rock you came from, GS.

      • Grumpy Smurf

        Stay classy.

        • Mock Kenwell

          You come on here hurling insults and talk about class? That’s rich. Try that on CanonRumors where comments like yours would have been censored.

          Here’s an idea. Buy a Mac, turn on private browsing and never worry about malware and cookies again.

          • Grumpy Smurf

            One needs a Mac to do that?

            Pot, meet kettle.
            Your whole account is an insult yet you accuse me… rich.

    • In a month or two I will be changing the whole ad structure on the site and with some luck, I may only run direct advertisement by the end of the year. You will see also less banners displayed on the right side bar. Just FYI, some banner sometimes use iframes which triggers some security software products, it doesn’t really mean that this is malware.

      • Grumpy Smurf

        13 off-site domains trying to run scripts (not calling these malicious), 4 third-party tracking cookies.

        2 off-site domains trying to run scripts, 2 third-party trackers.

        Only point is that one can successfully run such a site while maintaining a much higher degree of control, and none of the recent malware “scares” have been false-positives due to iframes.

  • Ren Kockwell

    Happy New Year from Chicago, Admin! Keep up the great work in 2011, and I wish your family a healthy, prosperous new year!

  • Raff

    Happy New Year!! From Italy!

  • The invisible wife

    I’m from Nikonland

    • The invisible wife

      Ok, Ok, I live in USA but I’m from France (nobody is perfect)

      • Finally your secret is out 😮
        Anyway happy new year to you and your husband and your kids :p

  • Happy New Year from Malaysia. Great job done, Admin.

  • ArthurH

    Happy new year!
    Admin, you do a great job running this site, must be a demanding job with this immense popularity… Thank you for this great site!

    My wish for 2011: the 85 f1.4G becoming available in the stores…

    Great job NR Admin. Keep up the good work.
    About the banners on the right: one double-tap on my iPhone/iPad and I don’t see them anymore, so I don’t really care.
    Btw: I’m (still) happy I bought my D700 1.5 years ago… — LOL
