Photokina 2008: Wither the Nikon D3x?

Joke of the day: Two neutrons walk into a black hole.

(CERN physicist humor)

Photokina is well along, and no word from Nikon on the long-rumored leap from 12 to 24 megapixels in a “D3x”. These things take time, but it does mean that Nikon loses momentum in the minds of users for every day that a D3x is delayed, with Canon offering both the relatively inexpensive EOS 5D Mark II as well as the pricey EOS 1Ds Mark III. Let’s hope it’s a delaying tactic to garner more attention late into Photokina.

Methinks that Nikon could drop the price of of the Nikon D700 to $2000 or so to raise the perceived value relative to the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, which no matter what the build quality or feature set will be judged superior to the D700 because of 21 megapixels and 1080p video.

The issue of image quality couldn’t be more night and day: one person finds that the D700 just does not satisfy for 25" prints, and another person is absolutely thrilled with its low light capability. This is why we need choices, and I delved into this yesterday.
