    Dane got an email a couple of days ago on this - it is going to cost £100 more here than the D90, - not sure where they are going with it or what their target market is, I mean it does give a pont and shoot D-SLR with loads of presets which I always feel are a waste of time anyway and then when you get fed up with those you have a normal D-SLR loke the D90 with a swivel screen - hope someone can explain to me.

    Strange... looks like about 20% LESS than a D90 here. I figured it was in between the D60 and D90 based on the price, but I didn't take the time to look closely at the specs. I'll figure there'll be plenty of reviews soon enough.

    If one wants one to shoot video too??? At least it's shoots in .avi mode which is compatible with most DVD players these days without timely conversion...

    Seems like a direct competitor to the D90. Not sure of the logic of Nikon this past year. They hit a couple of home runs, then released competing models with price points jumping all over the place.

    I must admit I am confused by it - even more when its priced here £100 dearer than the D90 for the body only at £719 for another £200/£300 I would go for the D300.
