    My predictions for upcoming Nikon gear are:

    D95 (Q2/10) - 14 MP 1080p AVCHD sensor from Sony similar to the Exmor HD sensor on the NEX5 and A33
    70-300/VRII (Q2/10) - will get the underwhelming...

    Sigma 24/1.8? <shudder> No thanks. Had it for the 4/3 mount. Not impressed. AF struggles in low light, unimpressive IQ, a little bulky, prone to flare, PF at large apertures.

    I find the Tamrons with built-in AF motors very slow to AF. I guess it doesn't matter that much for a macro lens, but I prefer the Tamrons without the built-in AF motor until they can come up with a...

    True. And that's why I have the LX3 as well.

    BTW, I know you use the SB speedlites with the LX3 at home, but if you want a pocket-sized flash that you can use on the LX3's hotshoe, try the Olympus...

    Well no, it won't be a slow ass f/8 lens ;) but you will need to use a prime lens to get a combined lens + body size of a P&S. The m4/3 zooms are quite small... their 7-14 WA zoom (equiv to 14-28 on...

    It's because the D40 had a slow mechanical shutter that couldn't go above a certain speed -- something like 1/90 of a second. It used electronic gating of the sensor to basically cut-off the signal...

    My random prediction is that it will be the D65/D5000 or whatever the D60's replacement will be called. 12 MP, maybe crippled video, and Tilt/swivel LCD.

    Also possible:
