Pentax “Knows” About Nikon’s D3

As you probably know by now, there’s been a rumor explosion over the past few days on the Nikon D3. Unfortunately, the rumors being reported as “hot” have been around for a couple of weeks and up to a month or so in some cases. Just check Google News for nikon d3 to see a sample, let alone the blog searches.

The one new nugget of info in all of this comes from PentaxLife. A poster in the forums section, Benjamin Kanarek, had this to say:

It seems that the “Rumors” about an 18.7 mega pixel Nikon with a 1.1 sensor seem to be known to the people at Pentax. When I brought up the new Nikon they weren’t at all surprised and said “Yes, a 1.1 sensor of 18.7 mega pixels…”

Take it for what ever that is worth. The implications could be interesting.


That’s the only thing that’s truly new in all that I’ve seen on the blog and news wires over the past several days. As always, I’ll keep you posted when something new hits the fan.
