OK, this is funny. I'm normally pretty straight in my news postings over at Wetpixel, but in a strange burp of personality, I referred to the Nikon D2X as "Nikon's Last Chance" , which spawned a huge thread over at DPReview (which is typical). Ha ha ha.
We're talking about it over at Wetpixel, too, but that thread has evolved into a chat about diffraction.
 "last chance" -- that is, for most of the Nikon working pros I know. you can debate all you want, but what i wrote has a lot truth to it.
