(ot) F6 is coming

Believe it or not, even at this digital age Nikon is still going to introduce a top of line film SLR: F6.

When I learn this a few months ago I incorrectly speculated that it will have a removeable film back.

After consulting with my source the picture is getting clearer:

To be announced in Photokina along with D2X and become available in December (so does D2X).

No removeable film back but the back stores a lot more shooting data, not sure exactly what it means and he wouldn't offer details either.

Slightly taller than F100 so it's smaller than F5 obviously.

It will the last film SLR from Nikon.

More discussion on this subject.


And yes, I did learn some information of D2X but I was asked not to reveal anything other the schedule.
