Canon really seems to be jumping ahead of Nikon. I really want to upgrade from my D70 – medium format is tempting but, as Peter Rojas points out on Engadget, medium format cameras still feel like you’re buying a car, not a camera.
Nikon needs to offer more options for the semi-pro photog. The D2X is an excellent camera but still around $5000. The rumored D200 is nowhere to be seen yet. With Canon promising several 8-to-12MP cameras in the next quarter or so, it’s a touch disheartening to a guy with a lot of Nikon glass who is looking for a reasonable upgrade path.
There’s also some interesting discussion over at photographyblog.com about the apparent slowdown of Nikon in the marketplace.
