Many here share your frustration Nikon Convert.

But reality prevails. It takes money to develop a new "something special" DX. DSLR sales potential is shrinking as time passes. Some customers have already made a one way trip to FX so will not buy another DX. So to recover development costs across a smaller sales base and then add the all important profit margin that Nikon shareholders demand, the sales price of a new Nikon DX may well exceed the price that many customers are prepared to pay.

Add to this a huge decline in the once profitable point and shoot market that could prop up the DSLR development cost.

Both Nikon and Canon are in a difficult market at the moment.

I say even after some have made a one way trip, the number of new DX sales far exceeds the number of new FX sales. But the total is shrinking because they are not even trying to support their installed base.

And then maybe the DSLR market is in the same position where the audiophile market was 30 years ago.
