Cameras,Delays and the Garden

Like Martin my cameras have remained in their bags this week, Its been a strange week weather wise with the start of the week cold and with snow then hot and in the high 70,s and now its pretty chilly out there although its blue skies and cloudless, In the middle we had very strong winds and even a day with tornado warnings,
The D7000 has gone to new good home and have to admit i will miss it, Its been a long time since i was down to one body although being the D3s i wont complain,
Seems that there is some turmoil in Japan as Canons long awaited 1DX which was announced 5 months ago has been delayed for at least 2 months, Nikon's D4 has been put back 1 month and rumors have it that the D800 may also be delayed a month, Canon are saying its firmware and Nikon's could be shutter, Either way it may be prudent to hold back on the purchase until things get sorted,
Canons big guns should be shipping in May all being well and the 200-400 is rumored to be properly announced soon although the again rumored price of $11000 will have lots of flack if proved correct and i agree it would be a ridiculous price,
My garden has been a hive of activity with fox every night and normally 2 together, Deer every night and the number of up to 12 my garden if full of foot prints and the best of the week was watching 2 opossums eating together right by our window so its time to get the camera and flashguns back out,
The wildlife photographer of the year closed this week so good luck to everybody who entered, I stuck a couple in at the last minute so fingers crossed, I keep meaning to enter more competitions but end the year with just 1 or 2
