    Gosh, I am wondering if the page counter goes beyond 99??? We will see soon.

    As to the topic, I suppose the thread may be more accurately named "Will Nikon produce a professional DX camera?" Nikon has not had the D300s on their website for sometime now, and I would suggest this indicates there will be no successor.

    So, we will see how this thread goes for a bit more, then possibly change to a new thread.

    .
    Given the number of people who genuinely believe dx is superior to FX, this is very odd indeed

    I think someone has fixed it, so won't go to 100, until we do get D400

    How will anyone know if it's an upgrade to a D300s or not even if they call it a D400. Is it just the control layout that would make it one.

    Good idea to close this thread and open a new one.

    My question, will this message push it to page 199? Darn, it did not push it to page 199. LoL

    Anyone that has a lot to say would turn the page.

    Everyone wants something different so what would really make a D400. What is missing from all the cameras out there.
  • Parke1953Parke1953 Posts: 456Member
    WOW I turned it over. 8-X

    And remember weeks would go buy with no new messages. The D750 certainly woke up this forum.

    If a few rumors starts in November - December - January that will spur lots of discussion. It will also cause me to put the brakes on my plan to buy a D750 & 24-70 F2.8 lens in January/February and reassess the rumors. X_X

    So let me get this straight, you guys went to all this trouble to type out 100 pages (though I am sure that only have a dozen are responsible for 90 - I sense a conspiracy) and you have no D400 to show for it???????

    Let's assume that each row is $50.00. What would you leave out?
  • Parke1953Parke1953 Posts: 456Member
    +1WestEndBoy (and you might be just a tiny bit low). I think the D750 is your D400. Just 1/2 frame slower.

    Well, carry on people. I officially retire from this thread.
