I've actually saved enough after 8 freaking months for a d100. But is this the time to plough all my savings for a 2 yr old camera now ? Dont tell me to think no further, just go buy it and start shooting, its the photographer that counts.
What I'm talking at the moment, is value for money, making the best use of my scarce financial resources. The d100, could be at the end of its time soon, and buying it at this point hardly makes any sense to my pocket, especially since it was hard saved. True, it is admirably good, but then, you never know how good the next would be, and as a consumer, you buy the best that money can provide. The d70 is out, but not yet released. A d100 successor is expected to be out, perhaps in the 2nd quarter of next year, and by the time it is release in the market, it'll be already in the 3rd quarter ( my estimates ). So it seems, its either a d100 at the moment or an unfufilled joy of trigger happiness until the d100 successor appears. But then again, I have an f80, which I still use often.
So how now brown cow ? give me some of your thoughts.
