    Re: Headlines - Nikon launches its mid-range DSLR king, the D700

    Yeah, the D700 aint a 'Mid-Range' DSLR and I doubt Nikon would ever discribe it as that. It is no less than a fully professional, but small, DSLR.

    The D80 is still Nikon's mid-range camera.

    Thanks for the feedback Gumpty, and I agree, the headline could have been better worded and has been altered accordingly.

    wish they would get a wiggle on and bring out a replacememnt for the D80, my D70 is a bit long in the tooth and cant afford a D300.

    It will be interesting what they do bring out to replace the D80. They won't want it too similar to the D300 as it will take a bunch of business away from it. Maybe a D80x version first with the 3" screen, new expeed processor and things like live-view and sensor cleaning but the 12MP sensor and faster shutter may wait for the D90.

    You could probably pick up a D200 second hand at a good price. OK, it doesn't have liveview but it's built like a tank and I'm very happy with mine. As I also have a D70, it's a mahoosive upgrade, and guess it would be similar coming from a D80.

    Cheapest I've found a D300 body new is around £830 inc VAT at Dixons in Heathrow.
