A quick update on Nikon rumors this morning – again, from a source I trust.
Looks like we’ll see a D40x. That’s right guys – an x DSLR from Nikon – a naming convention I’ve not seen yet. And why? ‘Cause unlike s models which are minor upgrades, this model will replace the D40’s 6MP sensor with the 10MP one from the D80 and D200.
To summarize…what are we looking at? A D40x with a 10MP D80/D200-type sensor. So if you’re in the market for the cleanest 6MP shooter out there, run and grab a D40 while you can. Pair it with a small SB-400 and you’ve probably met most – if not all – of your casual photography needs.
Let’s see if all of this is borne out at PMA.
