The problem continues to be that people are matching the D3X to the other models just listed. It is not. Was never meant to be. We are doing that and it has been in error from the start.

The D3X is a superior model for a nitch group of professional and high end amateur shooters. It is exactly what they wanted (not this consumer added stuff like video and anti shake), and the only issue would be with the pros who are buying them as to whether or the not the price is too high to pay. So far it does not seem so. If it comes down as suspected, the D3X will simply flourish even more. But this idea that the camera is going to die because of the price is ridiculous. The people who would have direct control of this because of a buying boycott, are not the target audience anyway. Let's see what keeps transpiring in the pro ranks. This is where it will live or die.
