How many stuck on stup photographers are buying this thing, compared to the other 1000++ cameras on the market. Or is it just you lusting? Smile.

Keep up the good work.

thanks PB

LOL. I'd love to do this for every camera if there were 500 hours per day. But since there's only 24 give or take, only cameras that generate super-buzz get this special treatment.

But it's not just Nikon. There's also a Panasonic LX3 daily round-up at RAWsumer.

I do understand. I love what you are doing, just spending toooo much time lurking, and seeing the "buzz" (D700) has begun to wear. But don't even for a minute stop what you do. Thanks again PB
