Nikon D3x German Leak?

Could this be the next version of the Nikon D3 that popped up on the Nikon Germany website?  Here’s a closer look:

What’s a Nikon D3 2 folder doing just below the Nikon D3 and D300 folders?  A Nikon D3x, a different folder for the Nikon D3’s updated firmware, or just a spare folder for all the Nikon D3 stuff?

I dunno, but crunch time is closing in for the 24MP rumored camera.  See this Nikon D3x rumor for the last word on the topic.

More Nikon D3x and D4 Rumors

Over at a German Canikon community, a forum poster says he’s got some new rumors on a D3 replacement from Nikon (via Google Translate):

The latest information from the NPS say that environments later this year or likely D3x Nikon Nikon D4 and announced no later than the Nikon Solution in February also will be available. It will be a resolution of 24, x MP in a series of image speed of 5-6 pictures. The new D3 is to replace and not run parallel what astonished me first and also excited.

Nikon D3x Rumors Continue

Yet another forum poster (this time AVForums) has claimed to have to goods on the much rumored Nikon D3x:

Went to dinner with Nikon this week.

The Nikon D3X is due in December 08.

Again, the 24MP number was tossed out there, which shouldn’t come as a surprise given that the D3x is expected to share the Sony A900’s sensor.  Also, this is the second time of late that we’ve seen the December ’08 time frame pop up.

If this is true, Nikon continues its terrible record of keeping product development news a secret . . . or maybe it’s all part of their plan?  The hype surround the past several Nikon DSLRs has been huge – and, generally speaking, Nikon delivered on the hype.

More Big Nikon Teasers – Lenses

I’m starting to get a bad feeling regarding the credibility of this series of “leaks“.  This third “ad” appearing on Nikon Rumors seems to be some edited photos of existing PC lenses (see comments on NR’s post for evidence).  If that’s the case, then this whole series appears to be busted.

Now, let’s go back to the drawing board on Nikon MX and the BIG news.

Muller Photo, a French electronics seller, has posted product pages for the Sony A900 and Canon EOS 7D.  While neither page divulges anything regarding the cameras’ specifications, Muller Photo lists prices for both cameras.

  • Their price for the Canon EOS 7D is EUR 2990 (Source).
  • And, their price for the the Sony A900 is EUR 2490 (Source).

Whether Muller Photo knows something the rest of us don’t remains to be seen.  Muller Photo could just be capitalizing on some free press by listing these product pages.
