Jaques,

>The D3x was an over priced camera from the start...<

Is that so? The Nikon D4 currently sells for $6000. What do you suppose the D4x, Nikons flagship model, will sell for when it is released? The same? Less?

The D4x is likely to have the pixel density of the D5200 over its FX chip area, returning a resolution of 56.4MP. A 50MP back for Hasselblad is a paltry $17,000. A 45MP Phase One back can be yours for the bargain basement price of $23,000. Don't forget to purchase the camera body while you're at it.

Overpriced? Nikon can ask almost any price they wish for a D4x and it'll still be a bargain compared to the cost of comparable MP backs for Medium Format bodies - and you get a free body too.

When the D3x was released its 24MP resolution was within the realm of Medium Format digital (25MP backs) so the above comparison is valid and differs only in that it represents a modern (future, actually) day equivalent.

Overpriced is relative. Compared to a MF digital back of the same period, the D3x could conceivably be considered an absolute steal.
