Check out this site for a feature by feature listing of the D100 and D60
http://www.digitalreview.ca/cams/D100D60.shtml One feature the D100 is stated to have is "Pixel defect compensation". Now if this is the same thing found on 3-chip video cameras it means no dead pixels. The surounding functioning pixels are used to interpolate the missing information from the non-functioning pixel. If this and the inclusion of Capture 3 are true then a good thing gets even better. Now if they would just release the darn thing.
Many digital cameras have "pixel defect compensation" routines to map out bad pixels but they're not usually accessible to the end user. For example I heard of one case involving a D1x that developed a stuck pixel: it was sent in for repair and the details of the service showed that it hadn't had the CCD replaced - it had simply had the bad pixel mapped out.
The great thing here is that it appears Nikon may be making the routine to perform this process accessible to the end user - in the same manner that Olympus did with the E-10 and E-20.
Yes, I hope the trickling release of information regarding the final specs is just the usual marketing strategy (= keep buyes interested). If not, then I would conclude the final design is not available yet and the release in June/July might be postponed.
And I'm awaiting the final shoot-out between D60, D100, and S2. At least from the preliminary specs the Fuji S2 clearly wins over the D100 and D60.
Have a nice day
