    it’s like saying if you need something with faster fps and higher iso than the D800 you pay twice the price…

    • fants

      I assume you’re referring to the D3S?

      • venancio

        no, canon’s EOS-1D/1Ds successor rumored announcement…

  • Jodi

    I expect a new line of camera bags or something equally asinine.

  • LGO

    Good and looking forward to this. This will force Nikon to show what it has.

    So is ‘AN historic announcement’ correct, or should it be ‘A historic announcement’ ?

    • Vince

      Both are considered grammatically correct. The use of “an” before certain words where the “h” is pronounced is a result of certain English dialects common in the 18th and 19th centuries when the “h” was dropped so words like hotel were pronounced “otel”. It became common grammar then to use the indefinite “an” and continues to be acceptable today. Typically, it is “more correct” to use the indefinite “a” when the initial letter H is pronounced.

      And they say English is a complicated language :-p

    200,000 yen for a 24-70? That’s double the price of the one out today and I doubt it will be double the IQ out of this piece of glass.

    Holly prices Batman!
    It is evident on whose backs this recession will be broken!!! Buyer beware… 🙁

    It won’t be anything serious, and you can tell instantly. For one, it’s for the CPS service, a camera announcement would be global. Second, it’s in the Netherlands, not where you’d announce a flag-ship camera for the first time.
