Previous lineup D2Xs, D2X, D200.

Planned eventual lineup:
D3, D2Xs, D300

I got 1K and a 300mm f4.0 with kirk collar on trade for a nice 8K shot D2X. The traded lens was new in May 07. Fire sale rate? Well, a little bit yes. Then again, I could look at it like it served me well, I put 3500 shots on it in 1 year at a cost of 800. But I admit, it cost me 500 to keep this camera past the announcement date. I did not anticipate a drop like this at that rate.

But if talking about drops, my D200 dropped the same amount in 1 year 10 months.

In the end, photography is my hobby, my passion. If it costs me an average few thousand a year, well, I get that much and more back out of it.

The D3, being my highest price new camera ever (that is if it EVER gets here). I fully expect to take a blood bath on it someday If I keep it long enough. Oh well, I could be spending my money on wine and women. Maybe more fun, but at least I have something to show for it instead of a real money pit.
