It's official: in the next few weeks, Nikon will begin shipping a high resolution counterpart to the D3. Called the D3X, the widely-leaked new digital SLR from Nikon will incorporate a 24.39 million image pixel CMOS sensor, a standard ISO range of 100-1600 and 5 fps full resolution shooting rate into a body that is effectively the same as the D3. The D3X, Nikon's highest resolution digital SLR to date, is slated to reach retailers in December 2008 at an expected street price of US$7999.95 in the U.S.
