Nikon drops D2H pricing?|
(Tuesday, December 14, 2004 - 15:16 EST)
An email from regular contributor Peter Burian alerted us to what looks to be a fairly significant price drop on Nikon's D2H digital SLR.
Originally announced at around $3500, Peter noticed that the D2H is now listing for $1995 at Roberts Imaging, and we found similar pricing from other reputable dealers such as Adorama, B&H, and Ritz Camera in our own checking.
First announced in July 2003, the D2H was targeted at professionals, and featured a 4.1 megapixel imager, burst speed of eight frames per second, 37ms shutter lag, and more - all in a rugged magnesium alloy body. With the price now only a few hundred dollars more than that of prosumer SLRs from a variety of manufacturers, this will doubtless be an attractive proposition for readers looking for an SLR that offers a combination of speed, reliability, and a Nikon F lens mount.
