Ken Rockwell is rather cute sometimes, and this text in celebration of the great F6 must be one of his best:
"Nikon's best full-frame camera, and the world's best 35mm SLR, is still the Nikon F6, announced on 16 September, 2004. In 2004 the F6 sold for $2,400, and today still sells for $2,450 new or $1,250 used: only $100 a year to own the unbeaten F6.
As the latest example of digital rot, the Nikon D2X was announced the same day. You people tripped over yourselves to pay $5,500 a pop, and today, no one even can remember it anymore. Today on eBay, they sell for $600: a loss of $4,900. Great investment, eh? Digital sure saves money over film."
Few people can be right, wrong and funny at the same time, but KR can
I have both the F6 and the D2Xs, and enjoy each of them immensely.
