I wonder if DX is on the way out?
May 10, 2012

The FX line of Nikkor lenses is getting pretty fleshed out, while the DX line is significantly more incomplete, and a bit puzzling (see Thom's comments). Also, if the rumors of a $1500 D600 FX body are true...seems like they might even get under $1000 in the following generation...at which point why not just stop maintaining the DX line of bodies?

With a couple exceptions: greater pixel density ("reach") for birding, and possible greater perceived DoF might make some folks want to stay with DX.

But from a supply chain perspective, it seems like it would be more efficient to consolidate to one sensor size if Nikon could still address the sub-$1K price point.

Thoughts?
