" .... He said the price is going to be $1999. He said also that there will be substantial promotions with the camera. One to mention is any VR lense at half off with the purchase of the camera. .... "

There's quite a debate going on there with few people saying they have heard things from reliable sources and economists saying that its not going to happen...

There's only one slight problem. There's only one VR lens in the Nikon lineup at the moment (The 70-200 doesn't count).

If less than US$2000, you will find long lines outside CP, AP, John 3:16, etc. Then people will queue up overnight, like buying condo. :D

You guys gotta stop taking quotes from DPReview forums. It's a place for TECH FREAKS more than photographers, and the fancy rumours that start are not uncommon to similar techie sites.

In other words, I'd rather we quote less from them. Gives us some credibility over DPReview.

if it is that price i might be able to get it
but i got one problem...that is i got a sb-28 the non DX version
so how?? i can't fit my speedlight on that thing rite...that means that i have to spend more to get a new flash...

is there anyother way like giving it to nikon and i pay them to convert my sb-28 to a sb-28dx??

Hmm
You should try calling up Nikon and asking them if they can modify your SB-28. But, $3600 for a camera alone seems a little pricey, especially if you're not working yet. And a good camera is nothing without a good lens.

Actually, it CAN be used, just that there will be no TTL. The non-TTL Auto works fine, as is Manual. :D

waiting to hear what the S2 price is going to be... especially since the S2 should probably take all flashes that a F80 can take...

Sometimes I just wonder why Fuji can do it when Nikon themselves can't.....

I believe the price will be in that range not so much because of the rumours but because that will be the price Nikon will be forced to adapt as Canon has already confirmed similar pricing for their D60. Point to note is that the D100 will not come with a charger and rechargeable battery which will have to be bought separately.
