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.

DX is NOT the smaller sales base. DX accounts for a hefty portion of Nikon sales. With that being said, do Nikon really need so many low end DX bodies given the state of the market? Wouldn't it make sense to produce a DX camera that customers really want?
