I held it in my hands

After a brief sojourn in the hotel room involving ice cream sandwiches and Asahi Dry, we ventured out into the steamy evening for twilight photos. We walked and walked and walked some more, through the red light district, Golden Gai, and stumbled onto a festival in full swing at a shrine.

My personal highlight though was going to Yodobashi Camera and getting to snap a few photos with a Nikon D700. I didn't even know this thing was out yet, but here it was, in my hands, and could've been mine for only a few thousand USD.

No, I did not buy it. But you have to believe me when I say, that thing was PRETTY.

Well B&H calls the D700 "the coolest imaging machine selling for less than three grand."

I don't want to know how many Yen that is.

It was around 380,000, I think. But I may have been looking at one with the kit lens included.

Still tempting though. Very cool camera.
