A little unusual, considering they have no new product to announce.
In the past, even with new product announcement, only 1 full-page ad.
I think they are losing sales to Canon.
Notice that they only mentioned their DSLRs/lenses, not the Coolpix PnS line.
Canon is too far ahead in the PnS game, IMO.
One burst of machine gun fire is more effective than single shots spread out over months.
They installed a partition to avoid 'accidental flashing'....
And removed it within a week.

"Wonders of the Human Mind. Unfathomable to the highest degree."
Does anyone read the content of the ads?
Well, I noticed that they were harping that the VR is in the lens, design for and optimised for each particular lens and so forth. I guess it's aiming at Sony and then, Pentax......
I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.
Wonder if Nikon products &/or services will cost more after today's blitz.
It's like no holding back, no tomorrow.
Anyway, i still prefer Canon style marketing... they are so confident in their products.. that they setup a booth and let people to go and test the lenses and cameras out to have a feel of how good it is. Sony and Olympus also did something similar...
What can multiple full page ad achieve.. i take a look n that is it.. ok it appears on the straitstimes.. i still don't know how well it works..
yea.. its a nikon thing to advertise like this... i dont see canon doing it.
