Low end DX will be replaced by the Nikon 2 mirrorless system, beginning this summer. This is the first model of the new DX. I'll buy this, but still expect a D400.

As a Nikon 1 user, I can tell you that low-end DX absolutely CANNOT be replaced by the Nikon 1 or 2 system, if the 2 is a 1" sensor camera. No way, no how. I like the N1, but the D3200 absolutely crushes any of the Nikon 1 cameras for IQ. And even if Sony or Toshiba design a class leading 1" sensor for the Nikon 2, it just won't compete with a D3200 for IQ.

The object of a company with a vast lens system like F-mount is to sell bodies in order to sell lenses. Cutting out low-cost options in DX would remove a huge source source of profit for Nikon. That, and the minor sticking point of 1" cameras not being up to the task.

The Nikon 2 system is probably the long-rumored mirrorless DX system.
