Nikonrumors.com has new rumor info from an informant that Nikon will be releasing a new DX DSLR “within few weeks”.
It’s said to have excellent tonal with very nice color transitions.
The rumor provider says he thinks the sensor is less than 20 megapixels. Now, he says that’s bad news. Frankly, I don’t see that as a problem. If it’s 16 or 18 megapixels and has good image quality (i.e. low noise and good detail), then that’ll be fine.
I suspect this might be the Nikon D7000. Seems to be the right fit. We’re expecting a D7000 soon. It should be 16 to 20MP for the sensor, and it’ll be a DX body.
The feedback on the sensor is welcome news. Excellent tonality and good color transitions make me hopeful that Nikon has done a great job with the sensor, same as they did with the D90.
Fingers crossed, eagerly awaiting more news/rumors… chanting quietly to myself… D7000, D7000, D7000.
