Let me start by saying that I don't have much face to face interaction with people who have the same level of knowledge or interest in photography and cameras that I have. Most of the information I get now is from Nikonians and other sources that I read.

So, while I'm sitting here thinking about Nikon cameras, I'm wondering if I'm saying the model names correctly since I haven't heard anyone say those names - only read them.

I have a D300 and have always pronounced it "d three hundred" which we'll assume is correct. I've been pronouncing the D300s as "d three hundred ess" or is it "d three hundreds"? And then I've assumed that the D7000 is "d seven thousand", but is the D7100 "d seven thousand one hundred" or "d seventy one hundred"? And so on.

Life would be easier if the cameras had names rather than numbers - or would it? What's the right way to pronounce Nikon?

Does any of this matter?
