In the past few weeks, after the D600 announcement I received many emails from readers asking me about any upcoming DX products. I have no reliable information at that point, but I think the next logical step for Nikon is to concentrate on their DX product line. I also believe we will see some "serious" new DX lenses soon.
How about new Nikon DX cameras (D300s, D5100, D7000 replacements)? With the latest rumors about a new Canon APS-C DSLR camera coming in early 2013, I think it is safe to assume that Nikon's announcement will not be far off. After the PDN Photo Plus Expo in New York at the end of this month (scheduled to start right after Nikon's announcement on October 24th), two other major shows are coming in early 2013 (CES+PMA in Las Vegas and CP+ show in Japan) - there is a very good chance that we may see some new DX products by then. DX format is not dead yet.
