Anyone heard of a rumour that Nikon are about to intro a new dslr c 20+ megapixels?

Presumably when they get their hands on a "nikon-ised" version of the 24Mp APS-C sensor in the Sony A77 or A65 - that'll be the D400 then lol
Anyone not heard that rumour? ...
d3200 if rumours are correct
without knowing the performance, but at £559 for 24mp, maybe Canon should learn something from Nikon regarding pricing!

Me, considering that I'm still in total admiration for the capabilities of my trusty but slightly battered D300.
[It is no longer a rumour http://www.europe-nikon.com/en_GB/product/digital-cameras/slr/consumer/d3200
still no exposure braketing tho,
otherwise id have been interested, thats the only thing i am missing on my d3000 (with my limited knowledge)
Silly stuffing this sensor into a camera of this class IMO. You're going to need very expensive glass to achieve the maximum resolution - and even then you'd have a very small aperture range before the effects of diffusion obliterated any gains in detail.
Sounds to me like a very cynical pitch at the market sector that thinks more megapixels automatically = better. But there is a kind of crazy logic here that Nikon have employed this sensor at the very bottom of its DSLR range. They're also releasing it with a maximum extended ISO of 12,800 as opposed to the 16000 [sic!] of the Sonys whence this sensor presumably originates - that's in spite of the fact there isn't a translucent fixed mirror cutting a portion of the light hitting it. Bet it still looks like a cow's anus at that setting though...
