Hi Gang...

The PodcastMaster, Rick, has hit the proverbial nail squarely on the head with his assessment of the D200 and D700 being ideal stablemates.

Having a D2Xs and two D300's, my primary "focus" is on long telephotos for wildlife photography...my passion...for which the DX format excels.

By the end of July, I was planning on springing for a D3 but, now, with this news, the D700 should be just what I need for "general" photography...whatever that all entails...

On the wide angle front, the relatively new Tokina DX 11-16 f/2.8 is looking to be very interesting stopped down to f/4 and beyond, and it makes me wonder whether an FX body really is necessary...for all intents and purposes.

The "anal-ysts" suggest you need to have full frame based on the numbers, however, I'm not sure an 8.5x11 or 13x19 print would agree. I mean in prints of that size, can the viewer really "see" the difference? Or, is the benefit, or improvement essentially invisible to the human eye? I don't know but I have a hunch my soon to be 64 y.o. eyes would be hard pressed to see any differences or improvements of FX over DX...Dynamic Range notwithstanding...

Well, just some rambling thoughts I wanted to share and ALL best wishes to ALL for a GREAT 4th of July weekend...
