    to me, if you go DSLR, forget about movie function, different interests

    anyone can highlight what about the lens support fot D700/D90 AI/AIS supported?

    so call lens support will not like D80/D70 fully mamual, the meter must work like D200/D1/D2?D3

    if not, I will never buy it/them!

    thanks

    If you buy it, you don't have to use ALL the functions
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    I would find the movie mode useful when I go shooting with my son and traveling. Good initiative from NIKON!

    Sometimes we don't need professional quality, but a decent movie to remember the place . It's a hassle to bring along digicam just to record movie , all the more when the quality is not really that great coming from the tiny sensor . Would love to see more of the sample video of this upcoming cam.

    I agree with you on that!

    Though even the sound of a "Movie Mode" from a Nikon DSLR seems waay too much wierd

    I would love to see the Shallow DOF in a movie!

    The lack of autofocus in movie mode is a bummer. But of course, what do u expect from a 1st Generation Video dSLR? The cycle of technology is just repeating itself.

    i still think DSLRs should be kept as a camera. not a video recorder. but of course the movie thingie is good to have. not a necessity.

    i wonder how much its gonna cost once launched. anyone any ideas?

    Check this out, its from Nikon themselves that estimated to be US$1000, not US$1200. But its ESP, so it will be US$1000++, so should be about SG$1300+++, hopefully not SG$1800.

    read somewhere that the body itself will be USD995, and the kit set with the 18-105 VR will be 1299. so that should work up to a pretty large sum.

    to think of it, i think i still love the range that my 18-135 gives me. its a lovely set.. dun think i will be upgrading anytime soon, unless they gives me a trade in option for my D80.

    You are right, the US$1000 is body only. And according to KRW, some US website is accepting pre-order based on this price, so it should be quite firm. Anyway if its printed on the Nikon site, it should be quite firm, I don't think they will be so dumb to up the price later to make ppl upset.

    Unless this kit is capable of IR, else I won't consider changing my D80 to D90.
