I'm sure they've had an option ready for rapid implementation for at least three years.

Reason why they've delayed: promoting full frame and protecting full frame lens sales (also the reason for 2nd rate DX lenses); Sony and Oly dropping out of the SLR market helped them to continue this strategy.

Reason why they have to make a move now: Pentax.

Nikon and Canon are in cahoots over the full frame thing (coincidently or physically - who knows?) - Pentax (Ricoh) is the wildcard, and they're playing it very well.

I'd like to think Nikon are also responding to the groundswell of bad feeling towards them from within Nikon heartland, but I doubt it.

Thank Pentax for a D300 replacement!
