I agree with Terry completely.
It is probably too much to expect of a large company, and it may not even be possible, but it would sure be nice if Nikon could at least throw some little tidbit to its DX users. I'm not asking for specific specs, specific times or even a specific name. But some statement of intent would be reassuring even if it is just to say to the high end DX users, "hang on, trust us, you'll be glad you did" or "DX is for consumer level shooters, if you want to move beyond that with Nikon it will need to be with FX". It is one thing to be secretive but still deliver big and on time like Apple typically does. It is quite another to be silent and not deliver at all.
I've been a Nikon user and dedicated fan for a long time. I've been member of Nikonians from almost the start. I went on the very first ANPAT and had the privilege of being a moderator here for quite some time.
And this is the first time Nikon has given me cause to doubt their ability to meet my needs. I have been frustrated with Nikon before. That's no big deal. But now I'm starting to lose confidence and that is a big deal. For now, I'll hang on and expect big things. How long? I don't know.
Someone mentioned taking a deep breath. Which is good advice because if you're holding your breath for a D400 you're not looking too good right about now.
