According to the report on news.com, more FX (Nikon’s marketing term for full frame) products are definitely coming but no details on the specifications or when. In the report, Steve Heiner, senior technical manager of Nikon SLR marketing, said Nikon is committed to bringing out more FX cameras, and more technologies at the highest end (Nikon D3) will trickle down to the lower end, which appears to mean Nikon will offer a lower-end full-frame model. Some rumors put that in second half of 2008. It is highly likely that it will compete against Canon’s successor to the 5D.
It will also be interesting to know who will make the sensor for Nikon. As Sony gets deeper into the red hot DSLR market, it may no longer be willing to supply sensors to Nikon.
