    Looking forward to next week’s announcements. Hopefully, Nikon surprises us with the D400.

  • This month didn’t cost me any money!

      It did me! I went out and bought a 15mm Zeiss Distagon. Awesome on a D800 but costs the earth!

    Getting to the point where maybe some price drops rather than new product announcements are due.

    Other than the D300s, there is really nothing in desperate need of a refresh as far as bodies go.

    On the lens front there is the missing 80-400 AFS in F-mount, plus whatever primes Nikon feels might sell. The only other lens really lacking in the Nikon range is a good micro lens. But the CX format is going to be far better for microscopy than anything could ever be on F-mount.

    So when does the D800 production reach the point that the lens rebates kick in? Main problem I have with the D800 is that I would need to refresh pretty much my whole lens set to take full advantage. Those D700 rebates of yore would be quite handy. D800 plus magic trio.

      @PHB – Great post and well thought out too.


      • PHB

        D800 plus magic trio currently goes for $8600 or so at B&H. ouch! (they do have a $200 rebate per lens for two bundled lenses)

        But going down to a D600 only reduces that to $7600 and without worthy lenses there is little real advantage to FX. Hence the reason I get rather pissed off by the ‘kill DX crowd’. Switching from DX to FX only really makes sense if either money is no object or you already have f/2.8 lenses. Using f/4 lenses cancels out the low light and DoF advantages completely.
