    I am impressed with the pricing on the D300. 8 FPS with battery grip is really making me like nikon but Im a sony guy and sony has its own tricks up its sleeves!

    woot! D200 dirt cheap! might be upgrading sooner than I thought!
     
  4. OMG I absolutely LOVE the current hyper-competitive market. These are GREAT cameras.

    Live View on both of them, btw.

    I'm surprised by the low pixelcount on the D3 - 12.1 Megalpixels. They're super-fat-big pixels, so there's awesome sensitivity and extremely low noise, but a great lens can offer resolution beyond this sensors abilities.

    But hey, they win the ISO battle. ISO 25600 - that's not a typo.

    And 11 fps (with AF off) is pretty good, too.

    Congrats to Nikon users, you must be very happy!

    I think you will be able to hear that one...like a sonic boom maybe? :D

    bad thing is, i just got the D200 and if the price goes down dramatically I'm going to be pissed....

    Damn, I was just about to purchase a d80 and if I can get THAT for around the same price as I would have upgraded to the d200 for it sounds like a deal.
     
  11. Oh no, I'm sure it will hold its value for years to come :er: :greenpbl: :sexywink:

    YES!:mrgreen: I hate the feeling of wasted money...

    Good news is that its going to be significantly cheaper that the Canon counterpart, I cant wait to see how they perform side by side though!
