The A700-D300 Replacements

Everyone is looking in the wrong place for an A700 replacement.

Need to watch Nikon, the D300 is long, long, long, overdue for a replacement. No doubt the Nikon guys are equally nervous about a D300 replacement, Nikon now two generations behind Canon.

There is no sign that Nikon will make their own sensors. they are currently using the 10M Sony Elmor R backlite sensor on the latest superzoom.

Since the Canon D50 has set the high water mark at 18M there is no way any top on the line camera to replace the D300 could possibly be released with less than 18M pixel sensor.

The Gate for the D300 replacement and the A700 replacement is the sensor -expect that these two cameras will have at least a 20M sensor -hopefull fabricated with some magic technology to negate the smaller pixel size.
