I don't see Nikon's continuity in FX lineup ...
Nov 13, 2013

Until some years ago around the Nikon cameras everything was clear, we all could imagine the Nikon vision of the future and we all thought we know where the Nikon is going. There were DX and FX lines and each line offered cameras for beginner through enthusiat for professionals.

And then Nikon added a new line, the mirrorless CX which is OK. Also started to upgrade the DX line cameras which is OK too and we were waiting -and still wait- for the upgrade of D300 but nothing is happening for years. And then Nikon started to mix the FX line, only the D4 is the camera I can position as the successor to D3. But what about the others ? The D800 is not an upgrade to D700, it is something like a successor to both D700 and D3x. The D600 is an entry level DSLR so it is positioned below D700. The DF simply seems a new line in FX line, I don't know what group of users is targeted.

The D300 and D700 were the most beloved cameras and they were selled well. I have both but I can't change them still there are no successors.

Why Nikon is makeing experiments with such dead-born ideas ?
