Presumably when they get their hands on a "nikon-ised" version of the 24Mp APS-C sensor in the Sony A77 or A65 - that'll be the D400 then lol

without knowing the performance, but at 559 for 24mp, maybe Canon should learn something from Nikon regarding pricing!

Me, considering that I'm still in total admiration for the capabilities of my trusty but slightly battered D300.

Silly stuffing this sensor into a camera of this class IMO. You're going to need very expensive glass to achieve the maximum resolution - and even then you'd have a very small aperture range before the effects of diffusion obliterated any gains in detail.

Sounds to me like a very cynical pitch at the market sector that thinks more megapixels automatically = better. But there is a kind of crazy logic here that Nikon have employed this sensor at the very bottom of its DSLR range. They're also releasing it with a maximum extended ISO of 12,800 as opposed to the 16000 [sic!] of the Sonys whence this sensor presumably originates - that's in spite of the fact there isn't a translucent fixed mirror cutting a portion of the light hitting it. Bet it still looks like a cow's anus at that setting though...
