    Was that about new releases or how noisy Nikons are?

    Lol more senseless dribble and rumours. I'll be very surprised if a new Canon killer gets announced this week.

    However one thing he said is very right. The digital age has bread an army of people consumers prosumers and to a much lesser extent but sadly still very prevalent professionals who pride themselves on low noise, looking at sharp pictures with a 100% crop, and number of megapixels on their sensors. Basically the photographic version of who pulls the most horse power out of a **** Japanese import.

    I have a "noisy" D200 and I have used it at ISO3200, and while it looked like ass on the screen after a very light noise ninjaring and a print out on 6x4 it looked spectacular.

    Basically I bought my D200 last year and I am good for a long time. I think if you keep looking at the latest technology you spend more time looking as opposed to shooting.

    I thought it was fairly interesting really. Good point about the 'noise difference' maybe not being as huge and all-important as some make it out to be. Very good point about pixel peeping and the obsession with how it looks on a monitor instead of prints.
    Also some interesting comments on what he'd like to see from the system as a whole, rather than just what he wants to see in the next camera. He doesn't really complain about Nikon's approach with cameras, in fact he's really doing the opposite, saying "I can wait six months", in response to people with less patience who are more interested in following what-the-other-guy's-doing and demand to know why Nikon isn't doing the same.

    Hogan's comments do tend to be a bit hard to follow and go all over the place, because he just gives us a few of his thoughts rather than "Master Ken's words of wit and wisdom" as a certain other Nikon commentator does ;)

    All I want is to get better than my D200 is, then I'll worry about a new camera body!

    I am anxious to see the new lenses though. :)
