    never happen. I wish I had another $1000 right now, because I'd be posting my new D3 rather than the D700. $4100 on B&H. :eek3:

    I don't really follow Nikon rumors. Cliffs on the rumored specs of this thing?

    24.4MP is all I know... and if its the sensor in the Sony A900 and its not changed up, you're better off buying a D3 or D700. :o

    I read somewhere that Sony was not going to sell their sensors to anyone else anymore.

    any proof of that? :dunno:

    Not saying Kodak has bad sensors, but the MP rating of 24.4 seems to match up w/ the A900 Sensor.

    Zero proof. Just rumors I was reading. I hope it's something besides the Sony sensor but that sensor does have the exact resolution it appears the D3x will have so it would make sense it's the same.

    I thought the Sony 24mp sensor wasn't that great.

    I mean, ya ya it's 24mp and all, it just wasn't GRRRRRRRREAT in the same way the D3 sensor was.

    exactly my point. maybe I should've held out and bought a D3 after the announcement. D3s are already in the low 4k range. :noes:

    Nikon can't make their own sensors?

    That is a very good and legitimate question, and the short answer seems to be "no". :o
