    How do you get GPS signals through "the same materials"?

    You mean they could be using...PLASTIC in a FF body to reduce weight??! The bodies of these cameras are already thin, I'd hate to think they are actually reducing that magnesium content even more. I remember seeing a lens driven though a pro Canon body.

    That is a good point, if they decide on a real physical change to the body, but Nikon doesn't usually do that without it being a "new" camera as opposed to a refinement.

    No, I was asking you a question. There's a difference.

    And that's a reflection of what, exactly? The weakness of the body or the
    strength of the lens?
