Didn't see any threads on the new Nikon D3100 yet. So far looks promising. Lets hope its not as abysmal as the D3000 :rolleyes:

Sure all the information is out on it, but I don't think there are any reviews yet that say if nikon fixed the 5 second delay after you take a picture etc...

There are plenty of previews but I think we have to wait until it comes out to get real hands on reviews.

This is a photography forum with a slight Canon "lean"...you normally find a lot of info on other systems that are exciting users, just not in the "Canon-specific" areas. This is not a Canon-specific area and I too am surprised not much has been said about the D3100, given that the D7000 has had tons of threads/comments.

It is not a slight lean tho, beacuse even the forum name is canon digital photography forum. And imo, the target market for d3100 are people who just started taking pictures, and are less likely to know this forum, while d7000 is very appealing for most enthusiast, especially necause of the recently released 60D which is at the same level :)

That's the entirety of the lean...It's like if you go to a lemonade stand and they are serving hot dogs, beer, ice cream and two kinds of lemonade...sort of :D

Can't argue there. That is definitely the markets they are aiming for.

Well, I know plenty of people that have a 5dmkII, or a 7D who just got into photography, and they use those cameras is full auto mode! :rolleyes: They just have a lot of money and wanted the more expensive camera...

I on the other hand am limited to something like the d3100, even though I'm much more experienced than my friend who uses his 5dmkII in full auto...

If the d3100 is vastly improved over the d3000, I'd be happy with it. You know what they say, its not the camera, its the photographer etc...

Well, Canon put the dumb green square on those for a reason...to help separate more people from their disposable income.
