new interview Goto - nikon future
I found an interesting interview of tetsuro goto, talking about nikon future and other things. It's in french but might interest you.
-it seems that nikon will maybe rise to 14mp (sony sensor) for the replacement of d300, cuz costumers want higher res' (but he doesnt want to answer)
for nikon, noiseless image is the most important parameter (more than resolution and dynamic range)
-a compact with aps-c sensor (like sigma or panasonic ) is very interesting
-d3s sensor is 100% nikon
in the future they would like to do their own sensors for aps-c but it take time.
-balance between resol' and noise is important, even if costumers want more mp.
-nikon is working on a new silent wave motor, which would be better
