With the launch of Canon 20D and the incoming new DSLR from KonicaMinolta, wonder when will Nikon introduce new DSLR to counter the competitor?

P.S : No flame please, from the past World War experience, just a nice forum discussion to discuss if how Nikon is going to counter and come out new DSLR.

doesn't really matter. Nikon cameras are better in many ways.

Frankly, having larger market share and faster replacement models with better specs than the previous doesn't make it a better Empire ;)

Anyway to prevent flames, better not have such threads... and my dear KT... tempted again? :devil:

BUY BUY BUY!!

No flames lah, as long as we discuss, confine and concentrate to this topics only.
Just wondering what action is Nikon going to do. I dun think Nikon is going to sit there as sitting duck.

Was thinking if D100 replacement is on the way,

D100 replacement probably already in the final stage, just that the D2X is the limelight for the time being and should be launching soon.

The D2HS 6/8mp upgrades should be coming soon too ;)

Not sure about this... but this is a quote from Thom Hogan about Nikon's future offerings:

What's working downwards from Japan through Nikon's distribution system right now is pretty much the message "we'll have a significant response to every competitive threat."

oooo... better not say those kind of stuff :nono: , remember its just an objective question from KT, and please don't put which brand is better or not. Its a no-no to start another N vs C war.

I just hope the new D200, D90, or whatever has support for vertical grips, saw so many D70 users straining themselves in Raffles City the last few days.

KT, from the past threads you posted, seems you have been running in circles, can't decide which camp to join ah? :bsmilie:

Of course the empire will strike back ... but then ... so will the C camp ... it's a never ending cycle dude.

Good luck man.

Nie, my earlier thread is understudy only, but a lot of ppl keep asking me why buy DSLR, why buy this, why buy that. Again, to state, just understudy only.

Anyway, this time, I have already decide which camp to join in.
If you see my past thread carefully, you will find the answers. :D
