Anybody here think this blending of two cameras is a little like what Fuji did with the S5? To offer a sensor that is the same after a camera has been out using that sensor for 18 months is foolish in today's fast paced technology marketplace. If this offering would have been 14 or 16 or 18MP, then it would grab some headlines. I think this effort to make another D3 in a smaller D300 body with the same old sensor is an error in judgment. And the viewfinder is only 95%! From what I see released so far about this camera, it does not offer up anything not already offered on the two flagship cameras it offers now except less viewfinder. So why the Momma bear offering? Who is going to get this without a battery grip? No person that I know of. So once you saddle this with a grip, you have a $3500 camera. Once you add D3 batteries and a charger, you now have $3800. The D3 will be at $3995 in a month, it is already below $4500. So to save a hundred bucks or a few hundred bucks, people are going to order a two piece body, striped down version of the D3? Not me! Not interested. Give me the 24MP offering hinted at over the past months. I don't want a compromise camera that tries to do everything to everybody. Nikon, IMHO, this offering is a fairytale straight out of the three bears. I'll keep my D3 & D300!
