    Quote "This is the camera that many professional photographers have been
    waiting for," said Robert Cristina, Manager Professional Products and NPS at
    Nikon Europe.

    With the high res 140mb TIFF files it will surely see many pro photographers
    reach for the cheque book and reinvest in upgraded computer and storage
    options also, as well as ultra high lenses to make use of all those extra
    pixels.

    Whereas once the D2x was at the cutting edge and at the time was pronounced
    "this will be the most anyone would ever need from a camera", this statement
    was quickly forgotten. Impressive specs on paper yes, but at the end of the
    day how long before this spec is outdated? I think probably a few months
    before its deemed 'old hat' and its users are left green and in need for yet
    another upgrade, maybe to MF.

    I hope the pixel wars eventually veres off and we actually have some useful
    features. I can see a panoramic sensor one day being released and then maybe
    a lower iso range for scapers.

    The DX3 is the one for the 'gear head' hence anyone buying one will indeed
    have all the gear but no idea. This camera indeed will be one expensive
    doorstop.

    I personally am more aroused by the release of the G10.

    How do you get high res images in 140 milli-bits?

    :)
