    Happy Birthday !
    I wonder what the first ever comment was ?… ” When is the D400 coming out ?” lol

    • I have to ckeck, I think it was about the D700.

  • Michiel953

    Congratulations Peter; you do a great job!

  • Carlos

    thank you for Your Service, the whole Team.

    • There is no team really, it’s an one man show ๐Ÿ™‚

      • MrOzMan

        You have definitely put in the collective work of a whole team! A very good one at that! So even more credit to you.

  • BernhardAS

    congratulations, good mix of topics. Just keep it as it is.

  • Ernesto Quintero

    336,949 comments of which 336,947 had to do with the mythical D400. ; – )

    Congrats ! Thanks for feeding my passion.

    I seem to remember you posting about starting this site back on the English cafรฉ on the nikonians site. At least I think I remember.

    • No, it was actually on a Godaddy’s blogging platform that was a mess.

      • ShaoLynx

        Yes, and we also remember that at one point you pulled the plug on that platform.
        The quote you used then was: “BTW, keep your promises”. Which the didn’t. You were quite worked up on the matter — and rightfully so. Anyway, that’s history.

        • Oh, this was another story – my web hosting company Media Temple took my blog offline because I was bringing too much traffic to their servers. I was really pissed because they pulled the plug overnight without any warning. Never use MediaTemple!

      • nwcs

        That’s right. I forgot you started with that. I thought you posted there that you were starting the original site.

    Six years old? Happy Birthday. Maybe being only six is why we see so many childish comments (although most six-year-olds are still geniuses).

  • chris Argyropoulos

    you are the best .

  • nikclick

    7years before, it was your. from then till now & years to come, it will be ours too. We’ll keep sharing our anger,love,hatred,empathy,sympathy,criticism as well as appreciation & support to Nikon here. Thanks NR / Admin & all friends from all over the world.

  • ShaoLynx

    OK, let’s have a joke here…
    T.I.M. says:
    Oh no, admin finally comes clean and admits the shocking truth:
    NikonRumors is run by a 6 year old!…
    … What? What do you mean: I misread?
    PS: T.I.M. where are you? Your jokes are better than mine.

  • Ronan

    Wow the birth of the D3 and the D700, still Nikon’s greatest digital camera’s…

  • Davidvictormeldrew Idontbeliev

    You’ve done a great job over the years and a high accuracy rate as well…

  • RonBraithwaite

    And thank you for keeping this up for the last six years. I look forward to the next six and the six after that!

  • Dweeb

    We’re all better off with NR than without it. Too bad Nikon hasn’t learned anything in those 6 years. Congrats.

  • dhrphoto

    Happy Birthday N.R. Wishing you many more!

  • Jeff Curtner

    Congratulations! You started a new trend, just look at all those sites since and came out.

    • To give proper credit, probably started this trend long before NikonRumors.

      • Jeff Curtner

        Yes, but yours is still the first for camera related topics.

  • Carlos

    Happy birthday NR! Keep the good work.

  • One More Thought

    Congratulations! You do great work.

  • Mr Kotku

    Happy Birthday! Before you came along I used to check out the website That guy just vanished. His last story was about Nikon F bodies going for high priced in Tokyo. That was about six years ago. I hope he didn’t pass away.

  • Henry

    Congratulations! Love your site and how you keep us updated. Thanks so much and cheers to many more years!

  • Arthur Tazo

    Wow 6 years. I dont even remember the names of all the women I was sleeping with 6 years ago.

  • another anonymous

    Great work Peter, congratulations!

  • Spy Black

    Well congratulations on your site. It’s very existence today is proof of your dedication to your site and what it represents. Thank you for all your hard work. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • richard

    I read your site every day, many thanks for your hard work. Particularly like the “guest posts”, they add a lot of freshness to the site.

  • riskinhos

    and still no D300 replacement.

  • Matthew Saville Baldon

    I remember the original site very well. In fact in ~2007 or so I thought “someone needs to just make a website for all these dang rumors, I’m tired of trolling the entire internet…”

    I coulda been rich!

    Any votes on the topmost complaint among Nikon users in the last 6 years? D300s replacement, or D700 replacement? Or…?


  • Neopulse

    Late post, but wanted to say thanks for going out of your way to host such a site and the others you also host. Helped a lot of people get their info from around the world.

    Congratulations on your 6th Anniversary and thank you for all the great information, and for providing a forum for interaction.

  • Alex

    Congrats on the 6 years, that’s awesome! Did Canonrumors start about the same time? Was there any collaboration between the two of you? Also, 6 years of Nikonrumors brings back memories! When does the D700x with the D3x sensor come out? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • mikils

    proud to have been a reader since the beginning – albeit with various nicknames – ready to follow this for some 60 more years!

  • Richard

    Well, happy birthday to you!
