More on the Nikon D10

More info (rumors) on the Nikon D10 you can find here (photography bay) here (dpreview), here (wired) here (electronista). I still think that this move from Nikon is inevitable in the future, but it is still too early for it now. There is still a lot of money to be made with Nikon DX series. This will jeopardize their whole line of DX lenses - if a full frame D10 will cost $3000 this year, it will be $1000 in 3 years, especially after Canon jumps in the game. Do you want to buy a DX lens today that will last you 3 years before becoming obsolete? Not to mention the DX cameras  - if Nikon D10 gets released, I will not update to anything else but full frame. Otherwise they squeeze another D300 from me before upgrading to full frame.

    Dear All,

    Lets call spade a spade. Each one of us know that the future of DSLR is Full Frame. So no surprise if Nikon launches its low cost model (presumably D10) just to coincide with Photokina 2008.

    For those who can afford and understand whats quality Full Frame is the final resting place. Isnt it so?


  • The D10 you are referring to is out but it’s called the D700…A converted D300 but with the FX version of the D3.
    I don’t know about you, but somehow I feel I’m being used here. Too many cameras at any particular time and too close together. Like Nikon didn’t know they were bringing out the full frame version of the D300 in the first place?
    Give me a break…..
    Photography is getting ridiculous….good thing I didn’t throw my film cameras out. I’m going back to film and my old cameras. At least I’ll have peace of mind and will be shooting more instead of worrying if I have the latest equipment or not or if my new camera will be deleted in 6 months…
    I’m getting sick over the whole thing…not counting the money I’m pouring in the business. As long as I still have a lab to process my films…I’ll be shooting it from now on.
    Thanks for letting me say what’s been on my mind for so long.

    You have to realize that for Nikon this is the only way to make money. With film, you buy a camera and you use for long time – this was bad news for them. Now they can get you to buy a new one every few years.

    Going back to film cameras ? Have you ever shot digital in the first place ? Takes money to do that !!!

    I am using the Nikon FE camera which is not digital. So i am now planning to buy a digital one which is the Nikon D10. What do you think?
