70-200 2.8 ED VR II
18-200 VR II
all just released.
again... repost. WTF is wrong w/ you tonight?
wtf repost? where?
The releases were JUST posted.
Yes, those were only rumors, but fairly solid.
So, in other words Girth is an idiot. Gotcha.
that hurt my feerings, monkey boy.
Nikon gear, just announced...
So in 6 months we'll be able to buy them if we wait and snipe the right store.
don't make me throw poop at you.
Just in time for my 2010 tax refund.
Anybody have MSRP's in the US yet?
MSRP on the 70-200 VRII is 2430 euro That's a 66% increase (1000 euro) over what the current version is selling for (checked the Amazon.uk store), which would be over $3k here
I'll stick with my "soft in the corners" v1 for a while, thanks.
Edit: US MSRP is going to be $2399
And what's the point of another 18-200?
My guess, no different except for the upgrade to VR II. The old one will be phased out.
As for the price premium, that's for early adopters. Doesn't seem justified even on that basis for an incremental upgrade, but what do I know. There's probably enough fools who will buy it just cause it says "II" and is more expensive
it was definitely important to release an 18-200 VR II.
since the people that buy that lens can really notice a difference
much wiser than making a few decent primes
I haven't read everything, but someone pointed out a "zoom lock" feature. I would assume this is to satisfy the issues with lens creep when pointing this lens in a downward direction.
well shit..ive been thinking of going video..d300s is so fucking tempting
This was expected after Nikon let go bunch of engineers
IIRC, Canon did the same so you are probably right.
Whats the video on the D300s? The same shit video as all other Nikons?
And a D3000? ..
Using the same sensor that the D40x, er..I mean the D60 has been using?
This is a shitty release. Fucking CCD are you kidding me?! That's a joke.
Both cameras are the same old camera + video
Yeah, I don't see the point of that camera at all. It doesn't even add video to the D60.
Maybe they just wanted to change the product name so it would fit in the lineup better? Someday when the D40 finally goes away they'll have all four-digit numbers for consumer bodies, two-digit numbers for midrange bodies, three-digit numbers for prosumer bodies and one-digit numbers for pro bodies.
Not that that progression really makes a lot of sense, either.
how high in the air do you have to be to use a 70-200 pointed down?
www.dpreview.com has all the stuff on their front page for those interested. Personally, I think $2400 is a bit steep for the new 70-200. But is it going to stop me eventually from getting rid of mine an getting it for the sake of being a gear whore? Hell no!!!
I wouldn't know...the 18-200 is the one I heard had "zoom lock"
and the 18-200 is known to have "creep"
and I am 6'5", I can point just about any lens down
