    I just felt like saying i disagree fully with the use of ashton kutcher as nikon's spokesperson. at least not the dslr's. it seems petty. if it annoys anybody else i want to hear about it just because i want to know if i'm the only one who thinks so.

    Why does it matter?

    John McEnroe is doing old fart cereal and car rental commercials. Anna Kournikova is doing Canon Powershot commercials. Bob Dylan did an iPod commercial. Bob Dylan did an iPod commercial. It's about money.

    FYI-Ashton Kutcher only acts stupid-it's part of the brilliance.. His Punk'd show, while it may not appeal to all tastes, is pretty well produced, and he is very adept with filming equipment.

    I have no problem with it. I don't listen to celebrity endorsements, anyway, just like I think musicians should shut up and sing and stop acting like they're somehow qualified to talk about politics..

    Kutcher stumping for Nikon definitely doesn't detract from the brand in any way, IMO.

    Hey man, everyone knows it's the gear that makes the photographer. Boo Ya!!!! ;)

    The gear manufacturers having been using the selling point that any idiot can take great photos with their stuff since Eastman sold Kodak cameras and film under the slogans:

    "You press the button - we do the rest."
    "Any school boy or girl can take great photos with a Kodak Brownie."

    Ashton is actually a very accomplished photographer and videographer.

    Anna may be hot, but should stick with tennis.

    I thought it was pretty smart of Nikon to get Ashton Kutcher for their commercials. And my guess is the campaign is very successful. All I hear from my friends who formerly used point and shoots is that they want to move up to a DSLR. Nikon is on top of this. Note that Kutcher is taking everyday family photos with the D-60, D-90, and they also tell you to check out the D-300. Hey, it's Christmas!

    But you can still hate Ashton Kutcher and be annoyed with Nikon. And it's fun to spoof this stuff. And yell at the TV set. My favorite thing is to rewrite the Cialis commercials -- live as they roll!

    I like Nikon's commercials with him better than Canon's commercials with Avril Lavign...

    I still enjoy watching re-runs of "That 70s Show"

    Good on Kutcher.

    Good on Nikon.

    If you purchase because of celebrity endorsement, please say so. It will make adding to my Ignore List so much easier.

    Jack Lalanne sells a juicer...... still haven't bought it.

    I really knew I wanted a DSLR, But not exactly which one. I saw Ashton's ad in Popular Mechanics that the D90 was the first DSLR with Video.

    I went out and bought it that day. I guess their ad worked, if I hadn't seen it, I know I wouldn't have gone out and got it.

    I see no reason why it would matter, it is nikons money to waste, and it is the product that matters to us.
