Yes, I was thinking of that fantasy site when I saw the details, he was 
*remarkably* close considering that he first posted it before the *520* 
was launched.

I'm told that it's the same price as the DCS520.

However an interesting titbit I heard this evening (from what has been a 
reliable source in the past) is that there's a *Nikon* digital F5 coming 

This (apparently) *won't* just be a Nikon version of the DCS620 (as per 
the DCS520 and the EOS2000, or whatever Canon's version's called), but is  
a *completely* different product.

Supposed to be substantially cheaper than the DCS620.

Of course this could be complete b****cks, only time will tell.
