It was rumored in mid-March that Nikon would stop production of the D3x soon; what with the announcement and release of the D800. Now the camera has been officially added to the discontinued list on Nikon Japan’s website.
This confirmation was a long time coming, as it doesn’t really make sense to keep producing the D3x, which comes with a $7,999 price tag. Not when the Nikon D800 and Nikon D4 are already here, that is.
The Nikon D3x joins the manufacturer’s list of discontinued cameras, following the D3s that was discontinued last month and the Nikon D700, which went out of production last January.[Nikon Rumors]
