What Happened?

Thom essentially writes that a D400 would be a big hit. I'm similarly convinced of this. Also, Thom says targeting consumers with no real investment in your gear is shortsighted. Again, I agree with Thom about this. Bottom line (I think): Enthusiasts have been and should be Nikon's core market, and said enthusiasts are well served by a competent DX system (a mostly tacit point in Thom's article is that cameras alone do not make a competent system).

Anyway, draw your own conclusions, and by all means feel free to share them here. I think that rather than speculating on when or if a D400 comes about, a more philosophical discussion about why that would be a good thing for Nikon would be a useful one to have here.
