It appears that I’ll be in the Bay Area the week of 8-Oct. If you want to try to see me then, ping me. If you want to be on my email list for a more direct notification in future, ping me about that.
I believe I’m already busy Friday (12th) evening and Saturday (13th) afternoon and evening, but none of that is confirmed. Which means mostly what’s possible is getting together for dinner.
I guess it’s mostly Nikon’s fault for giving the D3 such good low-light performance. Since there’s no way I can consider actually buying a D3 (I believe MSRP at release will be about $5000), I’m not sure why that’s the obvious driver to my looking at more equipment upgrades, but it’s at least one major factor.
