We'd hate to admit it, but you could never really mistake your humble narrator for a manly man, breaking cinder blocks with his pectoral muscles and hanging out at monster truck rallies.

Rounding out the rest of Nikon's gear at PMA was their four new S-series entrants, and three new low end L-series. The S cameras were, as usual, sexyhot, definitely gear we approve of (outside the folded optics); the L cameras are, of course, for newbs and your klutzy butterfingers friends / family...
