So I don't see DX outright dying anytime soon, but I don't see the DX infrastructure being expanded in the same way that FX has. To be pragmatic, all we really need are a few more options in the WA prime, midrange and weak-tele FLs to do it... I'm not going to be one of those that panic and jump to FX. My style of shooting puts a premium on size, weight, and yes, price. I'm going to wait to see if Nikon caves and goes mirrorless DX, so that I can save some money on lenses; but with cameras like the OM-D EM-5, EPL5 and EM2 performing at the level of a D90, I can tell you where the casual DX buyers of old - the core of Nikon's sales - will be looking first.

I agree. It is pretty clear that Nikon is relegating DX to the consumer level. We may see a D300s replacement but I would wager that would be the last "pro" DX body.

D7000+ enthusiast model will be the top of the DX ladder.
