D4/D800 vs D3/D300 Sendai Output Comparison
Feb 11, 2012

For all of those pre-ordering a D4 or D800/E in 2012, here's a comparison to say D3 and D300 in 2007. Let's assume 20 working days/month.

2012 Sendai Output (bodies/day)
D4: 250
D800/E: 1500

2007 Sendai Output (bodies/day)
D3: 400 (ramp to 600)
D300: 3000

If these output numbers are 1:1 with demand trends, then it's clear the D4 demand isn't what the D3 demand was in 2007 (I'd think that is true as the D3 was a huge upgrade in 2007, much like the D800/E is for many this year).
