I don't know if a D610 works for me. I'm saying that after trying it, I could get the hang of it and IF Nikon is getting away from DX at least I'm going in the same direction as well. Just wish Nikon would announce their plans so that I know what to do with my $.

I'm not clueless about what I want, I'm clueless as to Nikon's direction.

It seems pretty clear to me. They have only released consumer type slow zooms for DX. All the high end fast glass both zoom and prime have been for FX. That right there is better than a road map for me pointing which direction they are headed.

Also makes the release of a D400 even less likely. They would have to engineer and design several new lenses to make it worth owning for a pro. The FX glass is already being made.

Glad it's clear to you.

Whatever dude, was just pointing out the obvious. If Nikon felt pro users wanted to use DX, I would have expected them to make at least one pro level DX wide prime etc. They have released nor announced anything of the sort. All the good DX lenses were released a LONG time ago.The 18-140 rather than a 16-85 f4 update shows exactly where DX is going.

Dude? I'll bite my tongue.........but it's clear what Nikon body you'd like to be released.

Don't try to force your "want" over what I "want". DX has been around for 14 years. Nikon wants us all to buy their latest FF models and than when FF sales dip, they'll release a Pro DX to get us to purchase as backups or as replacements to the FF body we just bought. WIN-WIN for Nikon.
