d2h and d2x

->> I'm wondering, is it better to buy the d2x when it comes out, or save some money and wait for the price drop on the d2h to get the d2h?

->> Henry,

it really depends on what you'll be using the camera for. Could you give us a bit more info on what sort of things you'll be shooting, and what sort of media/medium you'll be shooting for ?

->> More importantly, how much, officially, is this camera going to cost? Where's the waiting list? Canon announces a camera and three weeks later it hits the market. Nikon takes forever to announce something and then you have to wait four months for it to be a reality. Great timing for when this camera is supposed to come out. January? Hey Nikon, you ever hear of a little thing called Christmas/Hannukkah/Ramadan/Kwanzaa/Boxing Day? Holidays=BILLS!
As usual, I guess I'll be the hated relative that doesn't get anyone anything, so I could afford new camera equipment. That probably explains the box of beef jerky and two sizes too small sweater I get every year. Something Freudian in that.


Henry, you are a posting machine since joining!

->> Honestly, avoid the D2H unless you cannot wait. I don't expect major price drop on the D2H before it's departure from the market. The D2X does not replace the D2H......but one may come.

->> To answer Nic's question, right now I shoot about 65% news things for the Daily Trojan at USC. the other 35% I do sports of various types.

Also agree with Heston, it is a pain to have to wait so long. Lets just pray/hope/beg that the D2x will have alot less noise on the higher ISOs than my d100, or better yet, Canon's top kickers.

->> I own a D2h and it has served me well for what I have used it for. Youth Sports. But as I move forward offering other photographic services the D2h image quality is limited. Especially for really large prints. Which I do plan to do. The D2x seems like the answer from all I have read. However, if I purchase it, I'm still stuck in the slow growing Nikon world. It frustrates me to see Canon behaving so well and getting such high regards. The D2x is rumored to come in at $4k to $5k. Well Canon already offers a great solution at that price right now. And by the time Nikon dealers actually have D2x's in stock, Canon will be anouncing something new again. My opinion. If I'm going to shell out $5k, which to me is a lot of money, I'm going with a Canon 1d MkII. Selling all my Nikon glass and replacing it with used Canon glass. That way it will be a wash. I hate to do it. I've been with Nikon for years and years. But I just don't feel the love anymore.

Good luck!
