View Full Version : Nikon D3X is coming...

Announced in their Pro magazine nogal! Here (http://nikonrumors.com/2008/11/28/d3x-specs-and-details-available.aspx) are more info and some scans.
Not much different except a resolution jump to 24.5 MP. I wonder how it's low light performance will compare to the D3?

I post the real thing, and then you respond with an artist's impression? :confused:

at this price, why the hell would anybody get this over the 5dmkii?
good heavens! it only goes up natively to iso1600 (d3 is 6400)
I'll take the 5dmkii, thank you very much - eish!

I didn't see the price, but my thoughts on Nikon's "amazing achievement" with high-ISO noise performance is simply this: Canon made the 5D with 12MP on a FF sensor that beats everything else on the market at the time and for a long time after that. Three years later, Nikon follows with a 12MP FF sensor that provides, apparently, a 1 stop improvement in noise over the 5D. That it's only one stop, given the time they had, is pretty piss poor as far as I'm concerened. Canon has shown that it is possible to prove sensor performance (both in terms of noise and detail retention - read the G10 review (http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canong10/)) while raising the pixel count. I expected Nikon would have had a much bigger advantage with the D3.
