It’s official at last: Nikon today announced the D3 digital SLR to update its 15-month-old D2Xs model. Nothing wrong with the D2Xs of course, NASA actually loves it; it’s just that we have to move on in the name of progress.

And progress in the D3 is the new FX format camera that features higher sensitivity, increased pixel count and wider dynamic range.

It’s a full-frame DSLR. The new D3 packs 12.1 megapixels, fast 9fps shooting speed, Nikon’s Picture Control System, a new high-density 51-point AF system with 15 cross-type sensors, 3D tracking AF, Scene Recognition System, dual CF card slots, a large 3″ TFT LCD monitor, two LiveView modes, and a whole lot more features that would appeal to professionals in press, sports, and commercial photo fields.

The Nikon D3 will ship in November 2007 with a $5000 price tag.
