Nikon - Falling Behind Again

Without anyone getting excited, is Nikon starting to fall behind again?

Let's put things into perspective.

D300 - great camera, did very well for its time and impressed us all.
D300s - enough to appease new users, but really not an impressive upgrade.

Canon 7D - This is a pretty big upgrade over the 50D. Definitely a lot more punch with this update.

Sony 850 - 24MP for the masses, if you have good technique and patience I'm sure this camera is capable of producing images on par with the D3x.

Canon 5D Mark II - Again, great addition in the right hands. It might not have weather sealing but this definitely does better in terms of PPI for large prints.

So that said, where is the D700x and when do you think Nikon will produce an APS sensor capable of 18MP?

I don't see either of these options happening anytime soon. Seems like Nikon has put themselves in a tough spot again.
