KR, you know who he is and if you don't then don't worry about it ;^), says Nikon will introduce the D500X with the same 24mp sensor as the D3X. It will be a smaller lighter body than the current D700?!? He says it'll shoot at 3fps in FX and 5fps in DX (at 10 megapixels in 1.5 crop mode)and have the same 51pt AF but with 95% viewfinder coverage. ISO will be 50-6400 with low and Hi modes. Apparently it will NOT shoot video so all you Nikon 720p haters can keep on hate'n.
Although he says the price will be close to $3000USD these specs seem more like the rumored "affordable" full frame camera. Sony already has the a850 with 24mp priced at $2000 so why not Nikon? Or perhaps this "prediction" is just KR F**king around with us and just an attempt to get traffic to his site. That would certily not be the first time right? ;^)
Let's not turn this into a KR love/hate fest and keep the comments on the BS, I mean, rumored camera and specs.
We'll know soon as he says it'll be announced July 1st 2010 and in stores in September. Oh and he also says there is a D700X coming too with practically the same specs. Ha Ha
