According to this post here.

Obviously only time will tell if this is 100% genuine, but it seems like there will be some kind of big announcement from Nikon very soon. At the very least, it seems one of the big models will be getting an upgrade.

Not that I am the least bit interested in replacing my current cameras, August tends to be a time when Nikon bring out some new models & updates to current versions, So it tends to be a good bet with the rumour mongers to choose this particular time of year......Smile

It amuses me that so many people are hell bent on knowing what the next camera model will be, Especially when they have hardly mastered the current version......Grin

I know its a tad boring, But the only camera that interests me is the one I'm shooting with right now, Today, This minute.....Wink

That said I guess the fever & speculation on the latest new toys, Is a sign of the times.......Sad

I guess the chase for technology maybe dependent on what you shoot. If you're a still life, landscaper then your need for improved auto focus is not as great as that of the action photographer, having said you may wish for better dynamic range and more mega pixels. I agree with the mastering of the one you have, I've had my D3 3.5 years now and feel that I've only just began to use it properly, but hopefully I can use the new knowledge with the D4, bring it on!

I love the rumour sites for their own entertainment value, as a technology & gadget fan they are great fun and in a way help me evaluate what may be possible in the future - my own favourite's are canonrumors.com and northlight-images.co.uk
They can also help when purchasing a camera as they will more times than not be right about a week before a new model is released and you would not often want to buy a camera in that week.

But then i have also fallen into the trap before of beleiving in an iminant release that actually took almost an extra year in the end to actually become available.

Where the real value come in is in looking for game changing technology that might affect your business if you invested in old technology just before say a multi layer sensor came out that your competition then purchased leaving you at a big disadvantage.

The fx body post may also help in your lens investment as the megapixels being sugested may affect lens choice, it may also affect storage and PC requirments.

Enjoy rumours but don't live by them.

About a week or just under is about right for the accuracy of the rumour sites = before that they are useless since Nikon and Canon simply don't have leaks (and the other brands are similarly tight lipped). The 100-400mm has had "confirmed" rumours of an "imminent release" for nearly a decade -- I guess if they keep at it one year they will be right Wink

Going up to full frame has always been my plan, but since I don't have any money it's all a bit pie-in-the-sky!
Anyway, after three years of owning the marvellous D300, I have now conquered the on/off button.
Onwards and upwards, eh what!
Photographic glory is just around the corner! Tongue

Agreed. Just thought this might be of interest, however.

the best thing about new models is that the price for the 'old' model gets better. maybe that will make a D3 affordable for me.

Weird thing is for me is that the camera which needs an upgrade most of all is the DX D300/s, it's junior DX the new D7000 has a better
sensor, some even have sold up and gone to this less "professional" body.

Still it's only a rumour, even though backed up by Bryan Petersons recent rumour.

I couldn't agree more. I have had my D5000 for over a year and I am just now starting to do some experimenting and getting some new cool add ons.Smile
