  1. Joey, I see no indication of this anywhere else. I believe it is a joke.

    I would have rather been rickrolled...
    I am not having any problems with mine and I am not sending it back for 4-6 weeks.

  4. I was reading a thread on DPreview, and apparently he has a history of making disparaging videos of Nikon products... Not quite sure why...

    Here's the DPreview thread.

    Very wierd... even if his info is real, production can be halted due to overstock at any time, he could have just assumed it was for technical reasons.

    My bet is this guy is just being a freak, trying to stir something up...
     

  6. I've watched several of his videos, and find them to be pretty informative. I don't know why he would post a blatant lie and ruin any of his credibility. It's obvious he likes Nikon equipment, as that's all he shoots, so I don't think he would deliberately post derogatory stuff about them. I guess we'll know if this is the case when the story starts breaking elsewhere or when all the stores suddenly show out of stock, and remain that way for 4-6 weeks. I wouldn't be so quick to call BS.

    This particular individual is apparently a paranoid schizophrenic. I'm not kidding. He got kicked out of Nikonians for impersonating multiple persons and posting replies to his own posts. Seriously, he doesn't need the attention.

  10. Wow! its that bad?
     
  11. You got to be kidding me ? :confused:

    Informative ?
    You mean the video where he pretends to put his camera in a microwave ? :confused:
    He has credibility now?!?:eek:

    Im amazed how many that comment on his videos on YT, and most of them thanking him for his wonderful work....Just shows how naive people are, beliveing everything they see/read on the internet.

    I personally think he is retarded beyond help, and should be sued his pants off for the all the copyright/TM infringements.

    ...and somehow, without following the link, I just know that this must be that #$&! "lilkiwiguy" character.:mad:

    I have yet to see anything useful from this guy. "The focal length indicates the distance from the sensor to the last rear element" was one of the great nuggets of wisdom he had. Ken Rockwell has at least some sensible advice from time to time!
