Nikon Full Frame

Does anyone know if Nikon will introduce anymore full-frame cameras? Followind the D3, I'd love the D300 or furture camera to be full frame.
I love Nikon and am ready to upgrade to a 'prosumer' camera, but there is a big part of me tempted with the EOS 5D and 17-40 f/4 lens because it is a full frame.

Thanks in advance,

give them a chance! They've only just released the beasts be many years before the next one. D3 is full frame (ish) though

I'm slightly confused by your post.....? ? ?

The Nikon D3 is full frame. ( almost precisely as per 35mm film size ).

The D300 is not it's APC sized sensor. Or if you prefer cropped, And this has been released at the same time as the D3.

What you have to look at is the advancements in technical terms that both these cameras offer.

Or are you expecting Nikon to produce a camera somewhere between the D3 & D300, That would be Full frame....BUT cheaper than the D3.......Sad

Why would they do that....Having just launched these 2 new models......Would they not be cutting thier own throats in the D3 market...Sad

IF and it's a big IF they decide to add a new model to the line up in the Full frame arena, My guess ( based on the fact that they now use CMOS sensors ) is that it will be something like a D3X, with more megapixels than the D3.......BUT thats not likely to happen, If at all for some considerable time.

So whats wrong with the D3 and the very tasty 17-35mm f/2.8 AF-S Nikon lens then....? Full frame and a Pro Nikon lens........? A tad expensive perhaps.
