Nikon D3x Slip

Nikon on Wednesday night inadvertently confirmed the existence of a flagship D3x camera through the posting of a product entry (note: now pulled) on its own site as well as matching photos. Little is revealed about the camera, though the x label is typically used to indicate special high-resolution models of Nikon's cameras and has been used both for the D40 and D2 in recent memory. The D3x appears to be externally identical and includes the same back controls and optical viewfinder as the stock, 12-megapixel D3.

The news may indirectly confirm reports of the D3x launching on or near December 1st but does little to support details of the camera itself, which is rumored to carry a sensor anywhere between 21 and 25 megapixels and to otherwise rival Canon's EOS-5D Mark II and EOS-1Ds Mark III. Nikon is nonetheless anticipated to preserve the very high light sensitivity of the regular D3 and would primarily lose frame rate due to the higher resolution of its full-size images.

    Finally

    If this camera is released in December you can put me down for one. I have been waiting for Nikon to release an 18 MP DSLR to upgrade my D200 (which replaced my D100 which replaced my Kodak DCS460 which replace my F3....).
