Nikon D800 Photos and Specs

NikonRumors got their hands on some photographs of the upcoming Nikon D800 as well as some technical specs. Surprisingly, the D800 sports a 36 megapixel sensor.

It turns out that the flooding in Thailand has severely impacted the daily activities of hundreds of businesses, including 320 Japanese companies.

The day after Nikon announced they have produced 65 million NIKKOR lenses, Canon made a press release stating they have produced 70 million EF lenses. Is it a coincidence that these notices were released so close together, or is Canon trying to steal Nikon’s thunder?
