No launch date from NR

Hi Renato,

The pxiel count of course does not make directly a price increase. You can stuff a lot more pixels on a ff sensor. But it depends on the technique used, multi layer sensors cost a lot more to produce. If the sensor is one part (suited for video), probable they use some kind of a layer technique.

300K yen is about same price of D700 at release, is it not?

Market wise I really wonder if it is wise to do in relation what Nikons' top of the line models will offer. But if true, it's probable in line with what the direct competition will offer (Canon, we already saw that one of Sony)

If the camera will be there so soon, why not a press event, why no details yet for large distributors and wholesale? All silent on this front.

I agree, it's too close and nothing yet in terms of launch events. This should be a very big moment for Nikon in the pro/high amateur market.

But observe that NR never confirmed launch date, only part of specs.
