    So, MX format? My Japanese skills aren't great. And by not great, I do mean that my Japanese skills are completely and wholly nonexistent. But there's DX there with the known camera resolutions, and FX with known resolutions, and then at the top, MX. I'm gonna say that it's a medium-format sensor. With the largest resolution being 40.7 mp! And a high-speed (HSX) at 18mp.

    Now, since I don't know Japanese, this is all me speculating. And this could all be a big ol' fake thing, but I thought that the idea of Nikon releasing a medium-format digital camera was worth bringing up.

    And if anyone has some Japanese skills, have at this, by all means.

    I'm getting kind of excited...

    Yeah, I thought he was. Hopefully he stumbles upon this and sheds some light.

    This could very well be a complete and total fake; but I think it's still worth getting some more insight on.

    In Japan, not from Japan. But maybe he can help.

    I doubt we'll see dMF from nikon soon, if ever.

    there have been rumors of a modular system from nikon coming up, too, where you buy an upgradable or modifiable sensor, like a digital back for a medium format camera. but that's pretty out there, as well.

    but, all those leaked japanese brochures seem to have had a little validity in the past.. who knows.

    The right page seems to have nothing to do with cameras... it seems to be about buying some food products. Part of it is omitted, so I can't get the whole story (especially since in Japanese the verb comes at the end of the sentence...), but it definitively doesn't seem to be about cameras.

    At the MX part is says "MI development plan", and then you can read it as either "data MX format", or "electronic component MX format" or similar. Then the same thing for FX, and then DX.

    Very interesting.
