Re: D3x - Nice but not magic

Pretty much guarantee that it won't offer 12 fps or anything close. And the noise "will not" be comparable to the current D3 just as it isn't with the 1DsMKIII.

The fact that you and I (and many others) don't understand just why is irrelevant really as these matters have been gone over repeatedly here in the past and basically concluded by far more knowledgeable folks. BUT, a very easy answer is that Nikon isn't (simply because they never have) going to offer up a camera in the D3X that basically trumps it's current offering of the D3. Why would they cancel out such a fine machine so soon? Answer:They wouldn't. So the new D3X won't have any "close" capabilities to the D3 as far as noise and speed and low light captures. However it should be as the D1X and D2X were, very good all around shooters. As you say, it would be nice to have it all in one. But it would make zero sense at this stage of the game.

Just my .02
