Nikonrumors says that they have info Nikon will be announcing 3 new DSLR’s, possibly even before the end of this month.
Speculation abounds on what these DSLR’s will be, although I would think the D90 replacement is almost certainly among them. If it has 1080 HD video, I’m up-grading!
The other two are grounds for pondering. Perhaps the awaited Nikon D400 is coming. Nikonrumors says one of the 3 Nikon DSLR’s will have 39 AF points, 16MP, 24 fps 1920/1080 video, and an optional new MB-D11 grip. Sounds like the D400 to me.
Another possibility for one of the three Nikon DSLR’s is the much talked about Nikon D900, D700x, or D800… whatever you want to call it. This has been expected/wanted by many for some time now. Will it be the DSLR that has the 16MP sensor referred to by Nikonrumors? I suspect that would be one sweet sensor as Nikon has demonstrated incredible ability with high ISO, so I would bet a 16MP FX sensor with the latest technologies (i.e. even more advanced than the HIGH ISO KING, the D3s), would be even cleaner at high ISO than the D3s. Oh yeah!
The 39 point AF sensor is an interesting spec though. Why would Nikon step backwards and not provide it’s flagship AF system in this camera? I mean the D300, the D700, D3, D3s, and the D3x all have the top Nikon AF system. Why step backwards in features? Makes me wonder if this camera might not be the D700 replacement. Maybe there’s a new sub D300s level DSLR coming? Fits in between the D300s and the D90 in the Nikon line-up? Hmmm….
