D90 - Tokina 12-24/F4 - ...
Nu de nieuwe versie uit is, zou er enige kans zijn dat Nikon nog firmware updates voor de 5700 uitbrengt met features die in de 8700 zitten? Zoals bv. AF assist, scene modes, realtime histogram.

Mooi die Coolpix 8700, maar... ik vrees een beetje voor die 8 megapixels op zo'n kleine CCD. Dat is vragen om ruis. Hopelijk doet Nikon het hier beter dan Sony met zijn 828.
Voor mij mogen ze alvast zo'n D70 klaarleggen
The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.

Die Coolwalker ziet er erg interessant uit .
Als die maar geen problemen geeft met foto's die uit een Canon camera komen
Wordt dit ook weer een ruis ccdtje.
Ik ben benieuwd hoe de plaatjes worden.
Ik lees hier verschrikkelijk weinig reacties op de 8700. Op dpreview is men blijkbaar vlugger in actie geschoten ...
Als fervent gebruiker van de 5700 vind ik de AF assist, iets grotere monitor en betere viewfinder een goeie zaak.
Op 8 megapixels zat ik niet echt te wachten.
Persoonlijk had ik graag nog een verbeterde versie gezien van de manual focus. Ik hoop (maar vrees het ergste) dat we nog steeds een afstandsindicatie zullen moeten missen.
Met een degelijke manual focus denk ik niet dat ik aan de verleiding zou kunnen weerstaan ...
En nu maar wachten op de eerste foto's !
