One report that I read said there will be a d3, but x, or h or whatever else. Just D3. And a d300 as well, but who knows what is real and what is just internet jibba jabba.

Yes this post is done in humor, as to me its the results not the means that is important.

Hey, all you folks that're gonna dump your Nikon stuff if they don't meet your expectations and/or time constraints? PLEASE give me a shot at your stuff.

I don't make my living with my camera, so I don't have to have the latest, greatest, fastest, and best equipment.

I'm delighted with the excellent products that have been made for many, many years by both manufacturers, but I have a Nikon now since Canon didn't make what I wanted when I bought my D70s after having a Canon for 25 years.

I love my Nikon stuff!

i think because i can't afford a d3 or d300 or whatever comes out next i'm going to "jump ship" over to fuji (s3pro)...

i'm happy with my nikon and third party f-mount lenses and have already invested to much in that glass to honestly think about jumping to canon...that is also a question of honor and pride! ;)

eta: This seems to put Nikon at a distinct disadvantage since they'd have to buy from a third party and may not be able to put out a competatively priced product, or one that was as well priced as the 5D when it came out.


You may find this interesting, though it really doesn't tell much about future products. Nikon Full color sensor?

If they don't hurry up with the 1:1 sensor I am switching to canon. I sent Nikon an email stating just that. I mean really if they don't answer the MKIII & 5D, which is what 3 years old already, I am done.

:-(


well, at least wait until the end of the month, we'll know whether they screwed up again soon.


I agree.
I have been saving up for some time and in need of a upgrade! I'll give Nikon until September 1st. If they haven't at least a official announcement. I will sell my Nikon gear and glass.... *gasp* for Canon :(

Nikon already lost so much of their "pro-market" I really don't want to see them lose their "prosumor" market as well.

I mean those Canon skin tones look so nice!

BTW: I am not trying to bash Nikon... but if Nikon doesn't offer the right tools for the job then I HAVE TO look elsewhere!

what about em?


DX lenses only work with DX sized sensors... not on film or full frame.


You could say the same about EF-S lenses, though, and Canon's doing just fine.


Exactly. That's why I don't understand people who say Nikon will never go Full Frame because they have the DX line of lenses. At some point, Nikon will be forced to go Full Frame to compete whether they want to or not.

I've been avoiding buying any DX lenses for that reason alone. Like ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Citadel, the only DX lens I have is the kit lens from when I bought my D70 back in the day. I have been avoiding them since then anticipating that Nikon will release something Full Frame or 1.1-1.3 crop soon.

I really hope they go full frame. I never thought it made a difference until I actually looked through the view finder on a film Nikon SLR (F10 I think?). I got lost in there. Now I'm thinking about some wide angle lenses and I don't really want the DX version especially if a full frame is on the horizon.

Full frame with a good sized view finder? I don't care if its only 1 MP I'd buy it.

:)

addendum to previous: The only DX lens I own is the kit lens. The other two I own would work nicely (hopefully) on a Nikon with a full frame sensor. The kit lens would need to be replaced with an other all purpose walk-around lens.

I would have absolutely no qualms about buying a 5d, a 16-35, 24-70, and a 70-200 if I could swing it. Even if Nikon did release something better in the near term, I'd be sitting pretty for a long, long time. However, I'd really miss CLS.

Punk! Haha. I'm actually really happy with my D200, I just want the future to be promising. At Canon, they keep going up while Nikon (to an extent) has been staying still. If Nikon makes a big move that eases my mind, I'll stay a Nikonian. There are many small things about most Canon cameras that I've used that I hate. Nothing on my Nikons that I have "hated", just that annoyed me.

We'll see. Right now I'm at the perfect place to switch if I am going to because I'm not heavily invested in lenses yet. But I'm going to wait and see what Nikon brings to the table.

I'm not quite ready to jump ship, but if Nikon does not answer soon and with something of significance, I just might do the same. But I have hope that Nikon will step it up in the right way soon.

The forever rumors have shortened, as Thom Hogan says that Asian media have already been notified.

It's now generally thought that Nikon is going to up the game by releasing the D3 and D300 at the same time.

Photography Bay has a pretty good roundup on all the best rumor-mongering.

Oh, we should also have an announcement by friday, supposedly.

There has been talk of a D3X forever, so I place no stock in most rumors. But Nikon MUST do something soon or all the pro's will go Canon, if they haven't already...
