Nikon D5!!!!!!!!!

I had heard that Nikon is going to release a camera called a D5! Its supposed to be full frame 16 megapixel CCD sensor, weather proofing and all the features of the D1's, its modeled after the F5, and heres the best part... where the rewind knob would be on F5 the D5 has a mini power generator! If you're in the field and your batterys going dead you can squeeze about 20-50 more shots out of it by cranking it 50 times. Also its supposed to have an air ionizer which repels dust away from the chip. If anyone else has heard about this please respond cause this sounds too good to be true!

And you guys call me a t---r---o---l---l---

Response to "T-r-o-l-l".

For those Michiganders in the know, a t-r-o-l-l is a resident of the Lower Peninsula: they are "below the bridge".

Yeah, I heard about it. It's not a D5, it's a D2. It comes with instant internet access and a panic button linking the user with the photo.net critique forum. When the batteries are dead, you can still turn some kind of wheel that will give you two arbitrary numbers appearing in the aperture readout for aesthetic and originality.

I heard it also comes with a can opener and toaster.

And a microwave in the back for heating your handwarmers?

Does it take Leica M mount lenses?

Robert Kennedy , Dec 09, 2002; 11:01 p.m.

It takes ALL lenses. The quality better than a 12x20 banquet camera, and it will actually tell you if your framing and subject matter are up to snuff. With it ANYONE can take a picture worthy of Weston or Adams!

You're wrong about the crank. It has a built in Einstein-Rosen bridge for power so you never need batteries unless you get to close to the event horizon . . .
