Hot on the heels of the rumor that the Canon G12 may have a DX sensor, NikonRumors.com has posted that the anticipated Nikon EVIL camera may have a DX sensor too!
I don’t know about you, but I’d love to see LOTS of choice of small cameras with DX sensors. Bring ‘em on!
There’s no reason, especially now that sensor production costs have dropped so low, that we shouldn’t have a plethora of compacts and EVIL digital cameras with DX sensors to choose from.
There’s no reason from the manufacturer side either, as these puppies WILL be BIG sellers, and they can price them higher due to the DX sensor. Nikon, Canon, and Sony need not fear cannibalizing their existing line-ups and profit margins. In fact, most DSLR shooters would likely want a DX sensor compact in ADDITION to their DSLR, which equals BIGGER profits for Nikon, Canon, Sony, and the gang.
To paraphrase the old saying… “if you build it right, they will buy it!”
