yesterdays trip to Nikon expo

Started early getting up at 4am Anyway this years effort was once again very good with some good demos etc. Had a play with a D3 and the D300, D3 certainly a piece of kit Seeing its ISO performance live etc it was outstanding. As was the D300.
Interesting demos and talks etc. And the studio demo was truely amazing.
(As was the model in that green and white dress!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Many lenses avalible to play with as well. One talk it was stated that the D3 is been priced at the same as the out going D2xs, this raised a few eyebrows however when asked to elaborate as to why the camera was at £3300 ish and you can get a D2xs for nearly £1000 less it was advised that the nikon recommendation selling price was same as a D3 £3300 ish.
However it seems that the D3 is leagues ahead of the D2xs, be interesting to see the price 18 months from now somehow i dont think it will plummet.
Someone asked the production manager why the D300 didnt come witha Screen protector he said they didt and didnt know why whilst someone else proved that it did so shows what he knew!
Anyway apart from that a good day out and some interesting tips gained.
Did note that there were no signs of any retailers as there were last year.
Another effort coming up in January at a hotel in Hammersmith on for 5 days will put info on here once i can find were i put the stuff!

And on that im off for something to eat!

(Actually, both D3 and D300 sound good but don't make nearly such a good story! )

I don't want to go anywhere near those cameras ..... best to keep temptation at arms length .... or a few miles in my case
