Nikon D700... nice...

Nikon has just announced the will be introduced D700 DSLR... just read it on my favourite camera review site dpreview.com. You can read about it here. For hands-on review... here. Look at this beauty... (err to my wife... you are still my no.1 beauty.)
Just looking at this picture (from DPreview.com) makes me go gaga... tangkap leleh siot.
Perhaps the worst kept secret of any recent announcement Nikon has now officially revealed the compact, professional, twelve megapixel, full-frame (FX format) Nikon D700. From the outside the D700 is virtually identical to the D300, albeit for its larger 'full frame' viewfinder, internally it's almost identical to the D3, except for a slightly slower shutter (five frames per second up to eight frames per second with the MB-D10 battery grip). By comparison it also includes several function improvements over the D3 including Image Sensor cleaning ('sensor shake'), more flexible 'hard button' programming, virtual horizon in Live View and different DX mode indication on the focusing screen. The D700 also becomes the first professional Nikon DSLR to sport a built-in flash. As far as competition is concerned the D700 really only faces the Canon EOS 5D (and any replacement that may be in the works). On sale in July for US$2999 or €2599 body only - DPreview.com.
Now... have to wait how Canon will respond. For me the deterrence is the price of the camera. Compared to the 5D which only cost around US$1500... that is a lot of difference in $$$. Already my friend who owns D300 is cursing like hell... claiming this announcement as a conspiracy of the highest level... (no relation with DSAI claim of conspiracy). But I don't care... this thing is a must have for me... the thing is... where to get US$2999... huhuhu. Must... resist... temptation to go to Tabung Haji... must resist. Bila aku nak naik haji kalau camni... hehehe.

I just bought a D300 about 4 months ago and now Nikon launched a brand new model.Sakit hati lah.If I knew, would have waited for this one, cost a bit more than the D300 but cheaper than the D3.

Well,that's part of the marketing strategy of the company, keeping it a tight secret.
