Hi fellow Nikonians,

I just read this a few minutes ago:

http://www.gearlog.com/2009/10/death_of_the_dslr.php

It goes along some of Thom Hogan's points of view that the commercial future is probably brighter for smaller cameras than it is for larger ones. Innovation is in miniaturization... (I hope I'm not misinterpreting him).

When I look at the evolution of DX and FX cameras, I think that DX may still have a bright future for cost and quality in spite of all the hoopla regarding FX.

I'm tempted by FX, but renewing my lens setup would be expensive, and would add a lot of weight...Would quality improve for prints up to 13x19 (I have an Epson R2880) for that amount of money ? I doubt... So, my mind isn't made yet but I should probably remain with a DX camera if I'm reasonable (and I'll probably go to FX if I'm more emotional)...

What do you think about this issue ?
