Nikon D3x now officially discontinued

I already mentioned that Nikon D3x is out of production and today Nikon Japan officially listed the camera as discontinued. Obviously the D3x and its price tag of $7999 doesn’t make any sense after the D800 announcement.

Nikon D3x also discontinued?

The website lists the Nikon D3x as “out of production”. They were also the first to mark the D3s as “out of production” back in December, 2011. Few months later the camera was listed as discontinued in Japan and the US. The Nikon D3x never dropped in price like the D700 and is still listed for $7,999.95.

PopPhoto’s crystal ball

Crystal Ball, originally uploaded by deanfotos66. Popular Photography named the Nikon D3X as its camera of the year for 2009. In the same article they mentioned: “Our crystal ball tells us the D3x’s 24.5MP sensor is likely to show up in a consumer model soon.” Not sure how accurate their crystal ball is.
