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

Wouldn't that mean we'd be getting a new camera with three year old technology?

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.

If they were worried about Pentax they would have done something last year. This is in response to the rumored Canon 7d Mark II.

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!

Thank Canon for the replacement if it does indeed happen.
