Nikon breaks the D3x's cover

There once was a time that companies could keep upcoming products under wraps until they were announced in traditional press releases and product catalogs; remember those days? Then the Internet came around and everyone lost company loyalty with spy shots and product leaks, but maybe Nikon actually went back to the ‘ol days with the Nikon D3x.

The upcoming SLR has been spotted in Nikon’s own Pro magazine revealing most of the juicy details. The D3x will have a FX-format, 24.5MP sensor that will shot 5fps at full resolution or 7fps at 10MP. The basic functions of the D3 remain but reportable there has been some ISO tweaks.

It doesn’t matter if these details were intentionally announced or not, the D3x has been outed. Now all we need is a price and launch date.

Update: More pictures, many more specs here at Nikon Rumors.
