    There may be 1, perhaps 2 people on this entire board that could properly benefit from one, use it as intended and afford it... lol

    I'm a little sad that they chose to keep up with the mega pixel race. I think they had a real opportunity to jump on the seemingly thousands of people that don't want a ton of mega pixels but even better image quality. I can't tell you how many that I have talk to that were furious about Canons chose to put 21mp in the new 5DmkII. I think Nikon had a real chance to put the final blow on it's arguable reign of image quality. Not to say that this camera won't but at 24+ mp, I believe they will have a hard time keeping the noise down at high ISO's.

    Except they don't care about high ISO on this camera. If you're going to be working with strobes, then the addition of ISO50 is a bigger deal than the lack of higher sensitivities. Nikon wanted a camera that can play against the 1Ds3 for studio/commercial shooters who are replacing old medium format setups.

    Don't forget that medium format backs are also fairly poor in the higher ranges. That said, ideally they would produce a camera that can be both excellent in studio and have a great deal of versatility, but it's my opinion that they already have that in the D3.

    It is not meant to be a high iso camera. Instead of just packing more MP's into the camera and trying to jump up with a higher iso.. The focused more on making use of the extra MP's for more detail in pictures.

    If this drops the price of the D3 and D700, then I'm all for it! :)

    It will not. There is no reason why a D700/D3 price would drop becuase of the release of a D3x. It would be like thinking The price of a Chevy van would drop becuase Chevy released a newer version of the Corvette.

    It's not happening... not that they havn't been plummeting like a stone in the last 2 months anyways! The D700 has dropped $550US and the D3 over $750US since their release.
