I have an avid photo amateur who lives about two blocks away from me who knows I shoot part of the time as part of my work and am a Nikon owner too. We both have D7000 bodies! He made a point of talking to me about the "new Nikon entry level camera" due soon, which turns out to be the D3200.
I told him I don't know anything other than the NR info and that in the one photo I have seen of it the thing looks like D3000/D3100.
He wanted to know what else was going to happen to the Nikon range as a result. I'll paraphrase his words "After all, with the D800 at such a high MP level and the D3200 also way higher than anything else, does this mean all the other models under 24MP are now obsolete?"
I tried to talk about ISO and noise as well as dynamic range, but he kept on coming back to megapixels. If he is typical "consumer" then Nikon marketing might have done a good job? [fx: falls over in shock]....
