I am also very happy with the announcement because I was really serious about buying a D1X if this was not happening. The only question that is now coming up is, is it wise or should we wait for the complete comparison of the CCD chips against the Foveon chip. If you read the specs of this chip, you can see some big future coming and if you look at the quality of the pictures (DPREVIEW / FOVEON.ORG) it looks promising. I know that in this digital world waiting is causing waiting because new products will be released and at the end of the day you will not buy. (good plan if you want to save money)
Let me know what you think maybe we can work closer to see who will get the best rates.
