Same old story, but why not give the Nikon fans what they want. I have taken magnificent pictures with my D300(s) and they are excellent tools, but they are now just a little long in the tooth. FX is not the be all and end all and a top quality DX rival to the Canon 7D would be a very popular model for Nikon.
Please make this release your priority, because the other stuff can wait!
You know that it makes sense, Mr Nikon!
