    Love the black FM2.. My first proper camera, workhorse for 20 years.. Still have it, 31 years now. What a great and simple design! Perfect size, balance and handling.

      And what a great viewfinder. Pity Nikon’s marketing dept. don’t see the need for a digital version.

        I know, WTF is it with these FX DSLR bodies with miniaturized viewfinder magnifications?

    Who walks around with a lens cap on? Not sure the inside of my camera bag would appreciate the humor.
    Might be more advantageous to market a D400 badge that would neatly fit over the D300. Or, Nikon badges for Canon cameras so the owners can pretend to be serious photographers.

    Am I the only one who finds the “I am” campaign te be getting a little bit old?

  • D4ve

    How about printing something useful on a cap like, “please remind this Leica owner to remove this cap”?

  • Spy Black

    That Polaroid flash is totally cool. Going for that.
