Latest development: no press conference on November 20th?

This is according to Fotosidan:

"On Foto2008 fair, so we talked with Lasse "Nikon-lasse" Pettersson at Nikon English and he can confirm that there is no press viewing the 20th of November."

Update:

At  the same time someone at dpreview claims to have seen the D3x with a release date of December 1st:

"Hold your breath, it will have a very interesting spec which - now - makes it clear to me why they put on hold the D3 production."

Here is another thread on the same topic.

I still believe we will see the D3x in the next 2 weeks.

    IMHO, Lasse Pettersson is from Nikon SWEDEN.

    Concerning Nikon topics, I would rather trust a Nikon representative than Mr Nobody from dpreview forum.
    Remember : Those who speak, do not know. Those who know, just don’t.

      PS : anyway jeff-c is best source up to now, so I will stick to his words : “a high pixel count pro body in 135 format” before “Dec 1st”.

    It doesn’t sense. I mean, why would Nikon be developing another camera at basically the same time as the D3, or while it was being produced, without knowing it would negate the D3’s quality? Assuming it would be a larger sensor, that wouldn’t make the D3 obsolete, it would just make it a separate model.

    So, it seems that either the ‘mystery camera’ is either a larger sensor camera like a Leica S2, or a smaller sensor, newer more capable camera below the D3. It’s hard to believe that Nikon would ‘remake’ the D3 after seem kind of design mistakes or flaw. I have wondered if Leica came out with the S2 to beat Nikon to the starting line while putting the R10 on hold. Who knows? It’s all rumors and speculation after all!!!!!

    maincu, the guy that posted the Dec1st date for D3x, has about said something that implies it may have no or very weak AA filter:

    You will all be pleased. Believe me. It is the first high res 24×36 that I enjoy the detail. It does not give you that smudgy feeling at the first look.”

    What about a 6-8 mp FX camera with 100-57600 iso (12800 very usable)?

    Miancu hints at no AA filtering in D3x in DPr thread mentioned above.

    can somebody give me the answer to this question,

    why do everybody wants the latest and newest camera to replace the camera they already have… a camera that does the task and clean up to iso 3200 for 8 x 10 prints?

    i dont want answers like “i want cleaner high ISO’s”, “i want more megapixels”, blah blah blah ((that is what everyone on this site seem to be hunting for))…

    • Boris

      cameron, not everybody surfing to this site owns already a d3/700. but for sure i’d like one… so if you have one to spend… you could be sure you don’t have to read my comments for the next 2 years because i’m shooting some nice pictures not asking what “new thing” nikon has to offer!

    • Duncan

      Additionally, the announcement of a new camera also has economical impacts. New camera announced = price of old camera models going down, many people will be disappointed if they buy a new D3/D300 only to find that it’s $200 less the following week because Nikon has just announced a new model.

    Source from dpreview: “However, in the specs comes something that I (at least) never imaged they will put into a 24x36mm camera. Maybe I’m wrong, those of you with more experience will tell if so.”

    My guess is an interchangeable back (MF style). That can explain why Nikon stops D3 production since it will comes as a D3 sensor back.

    It is liked the old day with the F2 system.

      Didn’t Thom allude to something like this some time ago?
