Fuji FinePix S2 Pro
Yashica Mat 124G
Nikon 50mm f/1.4 AIS

Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VR
Nikkor 85mm f/1.4D
If you don't mind DX or like cameras smaller than minivans but with good build quality, Nikon certainly isn't a behind Canon at all. They both do excellent, but slightly different, things with their current models.
Apr 28th 2006 3:06PM It's too bad, since they have some fun lenses, including nice wide-angle options.
Apr 28th 2006 12:33PM It's not going to hit that for a long time. Who would be selling a devalued used one for the next couple years?
Apr 26th 2006 6:03PM 1/1.8th, 10MP… I wonder if you can even tell what an ISO 3200 photo is supposed to be of with that, or if it comes out like a Magic Eye puzzle.
Apr 26th 2006 5:57PM It's a decent write-up but with some errors (Adobe Camera RAW supported the D200 right away? O RLY? Maybe he means Lightroom.) I literally don't understand the last con, though. As he notes, the D200 shoots 37 JPEGs in sequence, and it clears a buffer really quickly unless (in theory; never tried) you take 22 in a row. It must mean something, but I don't get it.
Mar 27th 2006 9:00PM Whee, instant flame war.
I think it's a really well-done review. Simply put, both cameras are amazing in some ways, "merely" quite good in others … but what's amazing about both of them is different, so it will depend on the individual photographer's needs.
What is clear is that while it would take a lot of technological advancements to improve the D200 (basically, getting a better, better sensor, which changes everything), there are a lot of things that could have easily been better about the 5D's exterior design. Good news, I suppose, for the 5D Mark II.
Mar 1st 2006 8:01PM I can imagine the reaction: "So I get slapped in the face with a hefty gift tax for gaudy crap? Thanks, Kodak!"
Jan 11th 2006 11:48PM I can't imagine why anyone would buy a "D" model of this camera (or H2D or H1D). Medium format back technology is still evolving pretty rapidly, and at least 90 percent of the unit cost is the back, so wouldn't it make *much* more sense to buy the camera equipment and lease the back? These cameras are modular anyway, it doesn't make much difference in form.
Aug 24th 2005 11:00PM He can, but the yarn alone costs $100. How much do you want it? I met Mark earlier this week. He's awesome.
