Nikon D3 (if it comes) Won’t Have a Full Frame Sensor

Nikon “clarified” their full frame policy by stating that Nikon won’t be making a full frame sensor DSLR anytime soon. Translation to Nikon D3 rumor-mongers (*cough, yours truly): If the Nikon D3 comes this year, it’s not gonna have the previously-rumored full frame sensor.

Amateur Photographer has the story on this latest update in the Nikon D3/pro-level DSLR rumor-mill:

Nikon has never ruled out the development of a full-frame digital SLR, but has no immediate launch plans, the company told us during discussions following persistent rumours on AP’s website forum.

Jeremy Gilbert, Nikon’s group marketing manager (pictured), said that if the firm decided to make such a camera it would first need to meet the appropriate quality-to-price ratio. In other words, it would have to be the right quality at a price able to compete in the market. Read more . . . .

No other news on the Nikon D3 or Canon 40D front. As always, I’ll keep you posted when it comes in.

  1. i know what you dont says

    Simply google D3… I cant believe there are THIS MANY people out there that waste their time dreaming up what the next camera is going to be. Why? Why waste your valuable time on this. Its nice to know roughly when an item is coming out, but i work in retail and people were asking about a d200 replacement less then a year after the d200 was released. If your in the market for a camera, you need to know that there are always going to be bigger better faster cameras on the horizon. Do you want a camera now or in a year? If its in a year don\'t waste yours and my time by visiting a photo store. and by the way, Nikon D3 is Full Frame! Expect an announcement this week!
