Nobody knows who Jeff-c is, but he has an incredible history of knowing what's coming next from Nikon. I don't think he has ever been wrong. He (or she) has a better track record than Thom Hogan (please correct me if I am wrong). This is what he had to say today (source):
- Nikon was not happy with the picture quality from the Sony 24mp FF sensor in their evaluation and rejected it.
- Sony is making changes to this sensor to suit Nikon's requirements.
- Prototype of a 24mp FF is floating around in tester's hand.
- He is convinced that a higher mp FF is coming within the next 6 months, regardless the MX is real or not.
Are those the reasons why we did not see a new FF 24mp DSLR from Nikon at Photokina?
All of the above are gossips/rumors - please read the whole post here for more detailed information.
