Surely it is time for Nikon to flip that “3” to a “5” in a professional body (aka D4x). With un-mangled Live View and tighter tolerances one would hope.
It would make eminent sense: Canon does not appear to have any big megapixel body coming for eons (in internet time), and Nikon’s D800 rules the roost on image quality.
So what does a smart company do in such a position? Squeeze the vise tighter and eat its own young with better products. Make waves. Force the holdouts to sell the other brand lenses and go for lock-in. Well, that’s what I would do anyway.
Maybe a little birdie flew around looking for cherry blossoms and saw and heard things still only whispered in hushed tones over yonder Pacific. Readers situated appropriately nokin know for sure, but might keep eyes open.
