Thread: will nikon end the Dxx line??

  1. #1

    Default will nikon end the Dxx line??

    Since Nikon have come out with all this camera, I was wonder…

    the Dxx line has been almost fully fill up..will the new Dxx be D30,D20 or even D10???

    Let put it this way:
    D40, D50, D60, D70, D80, D90.. Only D10, D20, D30 left, will Nikon jump backward?

    as for Dxxx, we still have long way to go..only D100,D200,D300 and D700(FX).. still have D400,D500,D600,D800,D900

    Need not to mention the Dx line… as there only D1,2,3… I ignore the D1H,D1x,….D2H… or what ever type…
    it still have D4, D5, D6….D9… to go

    The question is … will the Dxx line go back to D10,D20 or D30… or it will just end its line???

    P.S.:
    Dear Moderator/s.. if this is not the right place to post this question please move it… thank

    It'll be quite sad if Nikon is restricted by its product naming in coming out with new products.

    next will be D90x! then after that, probably D90xx? haha perhaps in the future, the price of the semi-pro bodies will drop so much that consumers will just ignore the Dxx range and go for the Dxxx series.

    Haha, that would be really funny if they did though. Imagine the press release for that:

    "Due to numbering limitations, we have decided to end the D90 line. Please feel free to purchase our other models. Thank you."

    Or "due to numbering limitations, we are quitting the DSLR industry completely. Please consider our Coolpix line of consumer cams, thanks..."

    Maybe Nikon will spring a new naming convention? Not like D41, 51 etc. but a new letter prefix?

    Interesting discussion...

    Maybe they will start the DXXXX line... Like D1000.

    How about this ?

    D40 > D40x > D60 > D60x > D60.1 > D60.2 .... > D61.....

    D70 > D70s > D50 > D80 > D90 > D91 > D92 ...> D99 > D99.1 > D99.2.....

    D100 > D200 > D300 .... not a problem till D699.....

    D700 > new line.... till D999. D1000 still an open option here.

    D1 > D2 > D3 > D3x > D3h > D4 (Mebbe skip huh ?) > D5 >......

    Hahhaa..... I am sure they are going to come up with something. Seems like there's 5 distinct product lines now.....

    D41, D51, D61, D71, D81....... Sound like nokia N81, N90.... sound not nice.. dun think so..haha...

    i do think that the Dxx will end soon.. as the Dxxx will getting cheaper due to Dx (FX)...
    even that they still selling the Dxx line.. it would be like price of P&S...

    D400 will cost like below 2k.. just mayb..

    no1 know...mayb some1 can make a call and ask Nikon how they will deal with the numbering system for Dxx line...

    I really doubt that they'd end a successful product line just because they ran out of numbers...

    How about going to the 'E' series, E10, E20 (consumer range); E100, E200 (prosumer); E1, E2 (pro range)?

    I'm of the feeling Nikon will start with Hxx after Dxx.

    Because H = Huat.
