I don't, and I won't. It's out of my price range. My next camera will be a d200 or a d80, and I hope NikonCraigH. said:It seems like everybody has got one.
realeyz said:Sadly I dont have mine yet either Craig, but I feel like I already know the camera very well as I have read and referred to the manual many times now in the past week.
I have a D70 also and I really love it, but back in November I made the mistake (or was fortunate enough depending on your POV) to pick up a D2h and look through the viewfinder.
I was stunned and immediately in lust with the great feel and huge viewfinder. WOW! I couldn't stop thinkiing about it for weeks. I came SO close to buying one it was sic. Anyway, my plan from that point on was to wait for the D2x as I knew it was the same body but had the delicious 12.8 MP size images, 8fps, time-lapse, high speed bracketing, and a host of other savory features.
So I sit here hooked on a camera that has not shown up yet waiting for the phone to ring. Sigh.
Well Graig, I have done my math and it's NOT good... :evil:CraigH. said:Are owners well off or did they just wip out their credit card in a moment of insanity from d2x lust?
My purchase was planned the day I heard about it. No doubt from that day till it arrived last week. Was going to sell the D1x and use the D2H and D2x but have not got the heart to sell the D1X so it goes on the shelf with the rest of the loved but neglected gear.CraigH. said:It seems like everybody has got one. I won't be be able to get one anytime soon .

Never say never Janet. you never know...When the price comes down, you and many others will jump on it and even if the price comes down, I won't regret paying the money I did because it is a honey of a camera.jczinn said:Don't worry Craig, there's still some of us who will probably never buy a D2X...as much as we may pretend to ourselves that we might ;-) Actually I could probably afford it--I think I'm getting a big bonus soon-- but I'm not seriously tempted. For me the larger issue is weight/bulk. I don't need or even want that kind of pro-camera. And also, I am not keen on having to worry about such expensive gear with the type of travelling I do. It draws too much attention. Not to say I don't dream of such a wonderful camera...I just think its the kind of purchase I'll make when I am retired and my lifestyle is a little different.
Meantime I am sure my next purchase will be the D100 replacement, whatever that turns out to be. Just hope Nikon hurries up with it ;-)
