$2500 would be ideal...but I'd be willing to fork out 3k. Really will depend on where the 5D II lands and and what features it has. I don't care about additional resolution, but it'd have to have much better AF, build, LCD, etc as well, and if it does, I don't see it coming in at $2500 either.


Guaranteed the 5DII will be no more than the current 5D, and I'm sure it will be close in many ways to what Nikon will put out. Current 5D prices are around $2300, from what I've been seeing.

It's not just the price of new body, you also have to figure out cost of some ff glass to go with.

I dunno. That's kind of like saying the D300 wouldn't be introduced at a price more expensive than what D200's were going for. The wouldn't price it above what the 5D was introduced at, sure, but current going price?

Well that's very interesting, $2999 or under would be swell.

I'd be sad to see my 17-55 go, but I hear the 24-70 is awfully sweet :-)

Dunno. Look at the cap for the 10-pin remote accessories. Why would Nikon go back to the old screw-in style, and not use the new style one from the D300/D3?

If you scroll halfway down this page in the Chinese forum where this broke, looks like a poster named dalessandro asks this same question.

EDIT: Note in that same forum, there's something about a SB-900 as well.

It's not the old screw in style. If you look closely (or blow up in photoshop) you'll see that it is a rubber cap, with a little fastener going around the side of the body. Looks like they are moving away from the more once piece style on the D300/D3, but not going back to screw ins.

Well, I should say, that's how it looks to me. My opinion may be tainted by my hopefulness in it being true.

Canon seems to be very quiet lately.
Scary.

It DOES seem that this possible new product would be designed to complement an existing D300 body. This seems logical.

Shame on you, Raymond... betraying the D40x like that.

I hope it's not true, I'll have no surprising news to look forward to.

Rodolfo, it's my fault. Raymond said unequivocally that he wasn't going to buy another body when he had the D40. I told him to get the D80 he would love it.

Oops!
