Yes - I wondered about that too, as the volume of D3 sales were never going to be high anyway & giving it direct competition this early in the game seemed kinda "interesting". The only conclusion I can reach is that they already have the D4 lined up for release in the not too distant future, and that will re-establish the differentiation between the top camera of the range and its nearest sibling. Anyone fancy 24mp FX with a 10mp crop mode?
