No matter which way you look at it, that's a lot of money for ANY camera

Re: D3x price

A lot of places still have the 1Ds for around 5K, it was about the D3x price when launched. Less would be better but if you are a pro and paying tax and Vat it's less than 2700 at that price and if your work needed that kind of output you'd get that back in a few days work. For a few holiday snaps and pictures of the dog it might be a bit steep in the run up to Christmas

Re: D3x price

I've seen a lot of bleating about the price all over the web and I just don't get it

I first heard rumblings about the D3X over a year ago at an NPS day in Glasgow; the Nikon reps acknowledged that a D3X was in development since there were a lot of wedding and commercial photographers out there who wanted higher MP counts for the work that they do - mostly so they could stop renting MF digital kit and rely on just one system of bodies and lenses.

It was always going to be based on the D3 and there was a lot of logical deductions that could be made about how many pixels it was going to pack, with the most common numbers being 18 ~ 24MP. I personally thought that Nikon would elect for the higher of the two, and I had guessed the price would be in the 4500 range... okay, so I was 1000 out, but I expect the D3X to start being discounted down close to 5000 not long after launch.

Whatever way you slice it, though, this camera (along with the 1Ds Mk III and the 5D Mk III) takes a bite out of the lower end of Medium Format territory.... not that I think Hasselblad, Leaf, Phase One etc. are concerned since they're now touting 50MP+ solutions - something we won't see in the 35mm format for a while (if ever!)

Re: D3x price

I had a play with one in the flesh today and had a chat with the rep who was very comfortable about the price as he said they won't sell 100's of thousands just thousands and that's what it's priced for. He says it is not the same sensor as the A900 and he says just shoot them back to back to see where the money is.

Re: D3x price

I don't doubt it Vinny... to compare the A900 and D3x based on the fact they have an identical MP count is disingenuous; there's more to it than the pixel count and the price disparity.

Even though the D3x sensor tech is based on the same chip as the A900, that's where the similarities end. The D3x has a different AA filter, a different microlens array and different dyes used to form the Bayer colour filter array. These design changes alone can add to the per-unit cost of the sensor.

Re: D3x price

You get what you pay for - Nikon or Canon - A pro needs the best at the best price ..... these are far cheaper than any MF system and arguably not far behind for most areas of work

Wait a few years for the consumer megapixels to catch up, and it'll be in the 3000 bracket
