    I would bet a D3x is right around the corner and that there will be a price drop on the D3. I REALLY doubt this will have any effect on the D700 price at all.

    No D3X for PK would frankly surprise the shit out of me.

    The D300 dropped in price when the 700 came out, I can see how the D3 would be affected, I'm just wishing the 700 would be too. Makes it easier for me to swallow :hs:

    I want one. Bad! :hs:

    I'm thinking that the D700 is far too new to see a price drop.

    I'm betting that Nikon will continue to manufacture the D3 and intro a D3x, with the D3 marketed as a high speed camera (ala D2Hs) with the D3x as the megapixel monster. I'm also betting that Nikon introduces the D3x at it's historical $4999 price point, which is the price that they've introduced all their flagship bodies at since at least the F4. If that happens then I'm betting the current D3 will fall to around $3999~$4299.

    Based on the Sony a900 price point of $3000, I think this is entirely plausible, the only question I have is when will it happen. I'm really hoping in time for PK, but it might launch at PMA '09.

    For the record, I made the prediction on OTAP a while back that the D3x would launch at $4999 and was told I was an idiot. :mamoru:

    D300 needs to keep dropping in price, and more people need to start putting them on the used market:x:

    I'd have to agree. That camera is fucking ugly. Just put some expensive sony glass on there and you'll have some of the ugliest, overpriced, shitty camera gear ever made!

    Seriously, if Nikon sticks that Sony sensor in a D3 body at a $5k price point then Canon is in a WORLD of hurt on the 1Ds...and by that I mean the 1Ds is FUUUUUUUUCKED!

    Having Sony in the game with their deep ass R&D pockets and with Nikon really turning up the heat, things could get very interesting. :noes:

    :rofl: Did you guys even look at the pictures from the LL link? If they dont make some miracle happen with that chip, I dont care how cheap they sell it for. The DsMkIII will still be better.

    Look down at the nature scene especially with the cobblestones (er are they cobblestones? I cant really tell from the Sony :hs:).
