Facing the strong competitive pressure of Canon 5D Mark II, Nikon finally ceased production of their entry level full frame camera D700. At present D700 (body only) goes for 15300 in Chinese yuan, and further price hikes would be inevitable.
This rumor is coming from www.sina.com.cn, translated by google and then posted by nikonrumors. For us it doesn’t make any sense, it could be that the D700 production is suspended or maybe even the D700 is about to be discontinued.

Need the fastest CF? I think Buffalo can answer that, the Buffalo’s RCF-H x600, is really fast. It’s available in 8, 16 or 32GB or UDMA x600 CF will offer you a 90MB/s writing speed, way enough for anyone shooting videos with DSLR, or just for who can’t stop shooting in Burst mode. These new CF are quite expensive and will be sold at around $567. WOW.

The Leica M9 packs an 18-megapixel, full frame 24 x 36mm CCD sensor, a SDHC card slot, a 2.5-inch rear LCD, and supports a sensitivity range from ISO 80 to 2500. Just look at it; you know you want it. [ Via crunchgear
