My mind goes round in circles on this issue, I am
not 100% sure who this camera is for, given the really high price.

I think Nikon had a hard time with that, too. They didn't put much
marketing muscle into the launch. It'll be interesting to see what
they do in the coming months with advertising. It really is tough to
wrap one's head around the D3x, as you suggest.

Much muscle? They didn't put any, Ashton Kutchner took it all. Thom, is it possible that Nikon put the D3X out there just to stem the tide of hungry high MP cry babies and all along they have actually been concentrating on something else... something bigger?

What I've shot so far
I'd have to say is giving me very nice files that will take my work a
bit further than before (caveat: remember most of the work I care
about is base ISO wide angle work). But it doesn't take it into the
MF realm.

Sorry, but put that way it doesn't sound like an 8k camera to me.

I should point out that MF is a mess for me, which is why I've
avoided it so far. Most MF is to 645 or 6x7 as DX was to 35mm: a
crop. But there doesn't seem to be a lot of rhyme nor reason to the
crop choices, nor are the lenses available really making up for the
crops for my type of work.

You sure it has nothing to do with the 30k price tag plus lenses and body and bigger faster computers with more ram and much more storage?
