Q13: Is there going to be a D700x or D700s? If yes, then when could we expect it? – Dr. Parth
Ans: Dear Dr. Parth, At present, there are no plans to replace Nikon D700.

Q14: When D90 replacement is going to be launched? I’m planning to buy a D90. Is it the correct time to buy it or should I wait? Is there any chance of D90 price drop in another 1 month? – Deb
Ans: Dear Deb, At present, there are no plans to introduce any replacement camera and no price drop can be committed.

  6. Inde mo nabasa yung nasa huli netong blog. "Just to let you know. The picture of D7000 is just an edited D700." Just to make spice na rin :D

  7. This is truly one of the best camera from Nikon. Been thinking of upgrading from D90 to D7000 but the budget couldn't afford too much. Just thinking if the D7000 would suit amateur photographers like me. I think D90 is too much already but I can't help to drool over this awesome piece of camera. :) Also, I think it is a good investment. :D

  8. I have been visiting various blogs for my research work. I have found your blog to be quite useful. Keep updating your blog with valuable information... Regards
