D1x images appear 'en masse'! (UPDATED)|

No less than four Japanese websites have simultaneously released much-anticipated sample images from Nikon's D1X Pro SLR digital camera today... If you're not familiar with the D1X, which we first told readers about way back on February 2nd, we highly recommend you take a look at the full specifications from Nikon's official announcement on February 5th.
Our friend in Japan, Yamada Kumio of the PC Watch and digitalcamera.gr.jp websites, emailed us earlier today with news that he had posted a 'first impressions' article on PC Watch; Yamada-san accompanies his article with 28 sample images from the camera. We also noticed that on his digitalcamera.gr.jp website, Yamada has posted further info and 4 more sample images...
Another Japanese website, Rio Enzo Fuzuki's Digital Camera Express, has posted a gallery containing a further 18 sample images from the D1X. Finally, our friends at the Digital Photography Review have found a further three galleries of D1X sample images from the Japanese Miscall website, hosted by Japanese photo-sharing site 'MyAlbum Service'. The first album contains 50 D1X sample images, the second has a further 25 images, and finally the third album has another 25 sample images.
By our quick maths, that is a whopping 150 sample images just waiting for you to browse them. Bear in mind in looking at the images that they're from development cameras, and may not accurately reflect the final versions. That said, we reckon the results (from the few images we've had time to look at thus far) are pretty impressive!
2001-04-20 16:15ET: Whoops! Our numbers were a little off on the quantity of sample images in the Miscall albums - we didn't initially notice that some of the samples were comparison images taken with other cameras. There's actually 25 D1X images in each of the latter two galleries, and the news item has been updated to reflect this...
