So today has been an exciting day for Nikon! Loads of new goodies for Photogs to covet. Finally, finally, FINALLY Nikon has returned to the greatness of yesteryear. The D3 and the D300 were amazing technology jumps for Nikon that brought them to a new level of awesomeness. You had your full frame monster flagship as well as the DX crop sensor mini-monster. It was a great & logical setup for photography products.

Then the D4 generation came out. It was D4 flagship . . . and a 36MP monster D800 . . . and a D7200 . . . and the D600 . . . and D610 . . . and a Df. It was a complete schmoz. And above all, no D400! Where was the DX upgrade with maximum FPS, rugged pro level build quality and all the great stuff that Wildlife and Sports photographers wanted?! It never came.  People were left in limbo land and Nikon really seemed to be walking around the desert of product releases that nobody really wanted or asked for, splitting markets in weird ways.

But it all changed today! The D5 was released alongside mini-monster D500! This is awesome news! Now semi-pros, enthusiasts, and full time working pros FINALLY get a solid DX performer that is up to snuff. Boo ya! Congratulations Nikon for making the product that everyone wanted and reclaiming the logical glory of yesteryear.

In other news, I updated my professional portfolio website that you can check out. It was long overdue for an update and I kept the simple minimalistic style that I like. You can check it out at www.schultzphoto.ca

And, I also went for a walk with the dog today and took along the beloved FujiFilm X100s. Here’s a few street shots from the walk. Really great clouds again today!
