An initial look at it makes it look similar to the F80 body. In fact, I won't be very far wrong if it's the f80 body tweaked. The major improvement, I guess would be the ability to meter with MF lenses... and not to mention a decent vertical grip. But that's as far as I can tell...

Well, blow me down. It's exactly like the F80 in terms of M/F lenses. ;p It can't meter unless it's an AIS lens. And the flash sync is slightly improved., from 1/125 to 1/180,

No -> New CCD sensor is the same size as that of D1-series SLRs (lens magnification factor x1.5).

I've been a Canon user but this camera has really got me thinking................;p For once, a prosumer camera that actually has a spot meter, something Canon can't give me.

Not only that, it has other nifty things like on-demand grid lines on the viewfinder (like F80), and you can use a cheapo $10 mechanical cable release instead of an almost $100 one. :)

Yes it is, it's quite obvious from the body. You thought it's based on the F100? :p

I still wonder why they called it a D100. Calling it D80 will be a lot less confusing. But then, Canon has the same problem. The D30 is not based on the EOS 30....
