First Nikon D2X Review

February 25, 2005 | Comments (0)
The first — long awaited — Nikon D2X review has been published today. Bjørn Rørslett has published the review just after midnight after the Non Disclosure Agreement had finished with Nikon. I haven’t delved through all the details but the camera is compared to the Canon D1 1Ds MKII.

Well, I don't know if the new Nikon is better than the Canon (as far as I have seen, it doesn't, at least when comparing high ISO, something I don't care about since I allways shoot 400 or less) but there is a BIG difference between these two SUPERB cameras: MKII = $8000, D2X = $5000, that's a $3000 difference!

Bjørn has updated his review to take the 1.5 crop factor into account. He mounted a 200mm lens on the nikon and a 300mm lens on the Canon have a look and tell me what you thnk about it...

Nice. It was a great review before this and now it's even better. Well, Canon users don't think the same...

Both cameras are the best you can use today and I don't see any reason to discuss which is better. If you don't like the Nikon just buy the Canon, that's all. I'm happy to see that there is future for the DX sensor and being the D2X as good camera as the 1Ds MKII for $3000 less I hope this will bring us the needed competition.

There's been a lot more reviews since Bjorn's and the D2X seems to be coming out a winner. Hopefully it won't be too long though before the price comes down.
