"Dual card slots for CF/SD memory cards" - that is nice.

I think heads would roll here if Canon updated the 70-200 IS and decided to charge $2400 for it.

D300s looks nice though! :)

Yeah, and they only want $4100 for the combo.

HOw many would really notice much difference between that and a 50D+70-200 f2.8 L IS for $2900.

U$D 2400 for the 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II... that is not realistic! Come on Nikon! RE-CE-SSION!

Although I expect Canon's to be U$D 1800 - U$D 2000

The D700 is sweet, but I won't be jumping to Nikon for their D300s for video anytime soon. Especially that their lenses are much more expensive...

What does the new VR lens have that the "OLD" Canon L IS does not? Who cares about an update, really.

I guess that depends on what people are looking for.

Nikon already has a really impressive fast UWA zoom in the 14-24, and a 24-70 f/2.8 that is supposed to be very nice. If their 70-200 VR is as good as their 14-24, that will be a pretty amazing zoom lineup and just another thing that get's people looking at the Nikon camp.

I still wonder if they give primes ANY thought, though... :lol:

Heheheh...ok...:)

BTW, reading the spec on the D300s, it has 15 cross type focus points active with lens from 5.6 or faster. I believe even the 1d markIII only goes from 2.8 or faster.

Don't know about the 1Dmk3, but the 40/50D have f5.6 cross type for all 9 points, with a second X shaped f2.8 assist point in the center.

What is this like Nikons 6th body of the year?? Didn't they just announce/come out with a D5000 that has an LCD that uhh flips? No wonder they get so much advertisement.
