ISO = "From 100 to 1600 in steps of 1/3, 1/2 or 1 EV with ulterior formulations until 1 EV beyond 1600"
Autofocus: "System TTL to survey of phase with module autofocus Nikon Multi-CAM 1000 with illuminator AF (from 0,5 m to 3,0 m approximately). Field of survey: from -1 to +19 EV (equivalence ISO 100, to normal temperature: 20C)"
I hope these specs are accurate. Still wondering how many cross sensors in the AF module.
If you ask me, as far as cross sensors go there are three options- 1: 1 cross sensor (dumb) 2: 3 cross sensors(horiz or vert? 3: 5 cross sensors a la cam1300 any more would be even beter, but we're likely to have 1 or 5 crosses. of course did you read that wide AF area? it sounds kind of like 7 ghost points...didn't the kwa-non 5D have something like that?
Again, Nikon has slightly changed the familiar AF landscape with the CAM2000. One can only hope that any cross-sensors (at least one of course) will be supplemented by some T shaped sensors in this new array. T is not as good as cross, because of the fall-off of sensitivity at the "top" of the sensor, but it's better than a single-axis when we're talking about low-light capability.
This usually means bad low light AF. I loved the AF on the F100/F5 and it it worlds better than the AF on the D70s I currently use. Faster too.
I hope the D200's dependence on the AF assist is only in the most extreme low light situation and is on par with the CAM1300 AF of my F100. I hope that's not asking for too much. Otherwise the rest of the spec are encouraging at the price point.

Accoppiamento dell'esposimetro: Combinato CPU e AI !!!!!!!!!! I may be in italian IV Honors but I am not 100% certian...but it looks like it says exposure meter coupling: CPU and AI! This means it can sense aperture ring position meaning it can shoot with MF lenses and meter! Whether we'll see spot/cw or everything including matrix remains to be seen Note in the pics of the top LCD we see Shoot ABCD and Custom ABCD- could that mean we can program 4 AI/AIS lenses and tell it to switch between?

Looking at the lightmetering description: "<...> misurazione Color Matrix disponibile per obiettivi senza CPU se l’utente fornisce i dati relativi all’obiettivo; <...> Misurazione Spot: misurazione effettuata in un cerchio dal diametro di 3 mm (circa il 2,0% dell’inquadratura) al centro dell’area di messa a fuoco attiva (o al centro dell’area di messa a fuoco se si utilizzano obiettivi senza CPU)<..>"
Color Matrix available for non CPU lenses (AI, if I'm right...)when user set lens parameters, spot metering at the center of active focus area for non-CPU lenses: IT HAS AI metering! And the viewfinder magnification is 95% with 96 % coverage. I have to save money...
>And the viewfinder magnification is 95% with 96 % coverage. >I have to save money...
can anyone help put this into perspective for me? how does this relate to the d70 and d2x viewfinders? somewhere in the middle i'm guessing? closer to the d2x or d70? bah i can't wait to have one in my hands.
>And based on the site, it is actually 10.04 effective mega >pixel not 10.2 MP. The camera will generate images of 3872 x >2592 pixels, which equates to 10.04 MP.
I won't quibble on a .04 MP heheheheh Wouldn't it be something if Nikon is using this camera to pilot a new low-pass sensor filter and aren't sure how the pro's would accept it? The Italian release talked about a new filter that would reduce moire' and CA. If this filter helped with the angle of light striking the sensor at non-vertical angles wouldn't this help with some of the problems of compatibility with older 35mm lens? Hope hope hope!
This is killing me. Can't wait for Phil Askey and Thom Hogan to post previews with facts and comparisons I can understand. I hope Phil has had a pre-production sample for testing already and has his report ready to go.
