Nikon DX bodies and lenses
Nov 22, 2012

I am sure the D7100 and D400 were originally scheduled to arrive some time ago. However, as I understand it, Nikon had to basically rebuild their entire Thailand facilities - causing a huge delay in the release of some new DX bodies and LENSES.

As of 2009, all of Nikon's Nikon DX format DSLR cameras are, or were, produced in Thailand, while their Nikon FX format (full frame) cameras (D700, D3, D3S, D3X, D4 and D800 and D600) are, or were, built in Japan. The Thai facility also produces most of Nikon's digital "DX" zoom lenses, as well as numerous other lenses in the Nikkor line.

In short, Nikon has NOT given up on the DX pro and semi-pro lines.

Anyway, just my thoughts. Looking forward to Q1 of 2013. Meanwhile, I am loving my D7000. No problems in almost 2 years.
