Cool. Looking forward to see Velvia 50. :)

All three rolls were 100, I was just saying the color is even more intense on the 50 and considering the price now I won't be buying any. This was the last Velvia of any sort I had, all I have left now is Kodak which does fine considering the price.

I got a chance to hold the new D800 and D600 today and I absolutely hate the fact that the grip is so small on these cameras :( My 5D2 is so nice to hold and the new 5D3 more so. If it wasn't for that, the D800 would be very high on my to buy list. Just that one thing stopping me from considering Nikon. Its a shame too considering how much of a better camera the D800 is over the 5D3, for over $500 cheaper too :(

I can't comment on the feel when it comes to Canon since I haven't used one but the final image output is what matters most to me. I shoot with a tripod and remote control most of the time so the "feel" thing has very little impact when I buy a camera. As long as it has the features that I want, then I'm good.

Question: is the d7000 still worth considering? I'd like to get a full featured dslr again and with the specs it looks like a good buy to value ratio. I sold all my canon gear so it'll be like starting from scratch, again. With so many rumors and options in the pipeline it's hard to pick.
If it matters I was also looking at the 60d, maybe the 7d and oddly enough, the Om-D. No entry level cameras for me.
I've had full frame yada yada with all kinds of L glass so I know my way around stuff. really on the fence at the moment

I'd hold off on all APS-C bodies right now, both Canon and Nikon are due to replace them. The D7000 is a great body but why buy one when a replacement with improvements is right around the corner?

I think so. Can't think why you shouldn't when choosing amongst Nikon's DX line-up. I still have mine.

How much improvement do you think Nikon will put in? 16mp vs 24mp matters? New cameras are susceptible to unknown bugs and flaws and the D7000 is priced very reasonable now.

The 24MP sensor that's in the D3200 is far superior in DR and ISO performance. I'm still scratching my head as to why Nikon introduced it in the D3200 first. Either way I would hold off, if the D7000 does meet one's needs it will be even cheaper when it is replaced.

Thanks fellas. I can't stand entry level dslr bodies. I like to have access to all the controls if possible

Yes, but more diffraction also. With the same diffraction, you also get the same dof.

You also get the same dof with a smaller aperture on FX, and of course more diffraction, but not more than DX with the same dof.

Diffraction is a result, not a cause. I'm thinking your confusing the issue.

I disagree with your last comment.

Exactly. Here's a sample with a back lit subject.
