NikonRumors is 4 years old today

Four years ago, exactly at 7:39:29 am (EST) I purchased the domain name It has been one hell of a ride ever since. I am a bit embarrassed about my first blog post, but at that time I really had no clue what I was doing. Anyway, thanks for being a reader over the years and stay tuned - I think we will have an interesting summer ahead of us.

    Great work NR, I have treated myself to a D700 for your birthday!

    Wishing you many more years of making your readership bite their nails. (And I also hope some of them keep doing just that, and only that – it would be nice to see some of the more inane and nonsensical comments/”contributors” wither away.

  • Congrats, Peter! Keep it up!

    Sincere congratulations on your 4th Birthday.
    A fantastic service to the community combined with a lot of really worthwhile information that you’ve provided over the years.
    Saved me some mistakes on buying prematurely.
    You must be very proud of what you’ve created.
    Hat’s off to you and have a glass (or 2) in celebration!
    Will check on you tomorrow to see if you’ve recovered 😉

    I read your site every day. I also purchased things I’ve learned about from your site- so from your advertiser’s point of view- your site is valuable.

    Thanks and keep up the work. It is worth it!
