Not sure where Nikon is going with that.
36MP is spectacular on paper but seems impractical for event photogs (arguably the main target market of this camera).
The slow frame rate does not help either.
OTOH, competition is good, so go Nikon  8).

for me, 1Dx sensor with single digic 5 for 5fps with AF between 60D and 7D, clean video (no moire/aliasing) at 1080x24p25p30p and 720x50p60p on H.264 420 (and maybe mpeg2 422), for $2800 body only, sounds like a winner

I think more megapixels is better, but I don't actually need 36 of them just yet

With any luck this will make Canon think about a 1Ds replacement in the same megapixel range.

Sorry Canon, but I have no intention of being fobbed off with a 1Dx. I'd rather wait until you see the error of your ways.

or maybe you will get some clue about photography earlyer.....  ::)

I have no criticism of the 1Dx as a replacement for the 1D, for those who want/need that camera it is probably an excellent body. But I believe it is not and never will be a proper update of the 1Ds.

This is not aimed at event photographers.

It is for studio and landscape use.

I don't see where Canon made an error?!
Apparently they didn't build him his own tailor-made personal camera.

If so then we could expect the next D4 to be low in MP like the 1DX and maybe also expect a new body from Nikon between the D4 and the D800 with smaller MP (like a D4) and a smaller form factor compared to the D4 right?

1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

If this is true, then Nikon are being very strange as well... This D800 will more or less kill off the D3x and the D4, which will presumably be presumably lower resolution to get better high ISO & frame rates for action shooters, is due for release first (Olympic year)? So maybe it's both Canon and Nikon that see no future for a large body, high resolution camera? Roll on the 5D MkIII at 300MP+!  :)

The D300s replacement (D400?) would fit perfectly in that spot, in the 18-24MP range, to compete with 7DII ;)
I also expect D4 to be quite close to 1DX, in almost all areas.

It will kill the D3x but not the D4, no, :) they will be in different leagues.

It makes you wonder if there will be a D3x....

Interesting Youtube video posted by Dom Bower today regarding this camera.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abPX_Q1zVJc&feature=share

Most interesting part being his section on the lenses. Now i don't keep up with the specs on the Nikon gear but if what he is saying is true, then he makes a fairly solid case why this camera may not actually be as great as people think/hope.
Yes, i shoot video on a DSLR.

Erm... Sorry, I think a punctuation error slipped in there somewhere... and a typo! This was probably the the most poorly written post I have made so far, please accept my humble apologies. :-[

This post is only as relevant as Canon is ignorant of a community of shooters who want a similarly spec'd camera for their Canon lenses.

Based on increasing Nikon camera prices in Japan, I speculate the D800 will cost a bomb.
