What are Nikon & Canon seeing in their sales projections for DX sport cameras?
4 months ago

What are the camera companies seeing in the sales figures that we are not?

From the forum here – the most requested new model is a D300/D300s replacement – DX sports camera.

When the camera first appeared – Canon responded rather quickly with the 7D model – their version of a DX sports camera.

Today – Nikon users are waiting for a D300 replacement – but more interestingly, Canon users are also waiting for a 7D replacement. No rumours or indicators that a replacement will be coming soon.

The only company that seems to be hearing the call for a DX sports camera is Pentax when they released the K3.

So my question is, were the sales of the D300/D300s/7D way below expectations that Canon and Nikon decided to abandoned this category of DX sports camera?
