It's never that easy, though

1" is pretty deep, first of all. It's actually deeper than the entire NEX body at that point - and you still need room for a PCB, LCD, buttons, chassis, etc. So I don't think it's feasible to do in one solid piece. Doing it in 2 pieces might work, but then you have this slider mechanism that has to support a lot of weight and a bending force, which is exactly the kind of force a 2-piece sliding tube is going to be bad at supporting. So it's gotta be a really nicely

All good points!

That's because when Olympus went from 4/3 to m4/3 (i.e. DSLR to mirrorless) they decreased the size of the flange by 6mm. There was no inherent reason why the DSLR needed a larger flange size. If the DSLR had been made with the smaller flange size, it's lenses would have been smaller.

You are confusing convoluted factors.



Or the other way around; if the lens had been smaller, the flange could have had a smaller diameter. Remember that the 4/3 lenses are rectilinear as well as telecentric. The m4/3 lenses are neither (except I believe for some of the telephoto lenses), which gives the lens designer more freedom to make smaller lenses and flange.

Well, I'll give it a rest, and leave open who's confusing what.

The topic of this thread is the imagined D400 that is coming in September and we still haven't found out which year's September it will be

OK, not in August, but September ...



September is almost over, so I guess I don't believe Thom. Maybe next month.

I've pretty much gave up on a D400 and am saving up for a D4.

As soon as the rumors hit saying no 7D II this year I knew the D400 wasn't going to come out either. Instead we get the D600 regurgitated.

<This. My bet is the D400 never happens.

The D7100 has 24mp, a 1.3x crop ability, dual cards, the same AF system from the D800/D4, and "D800 level weather sealing".......this IS the "D400".....

The fact that everyone still wants a D300/D700/D800 size body, faster frame rate, and a deeper buffer means NOTHING to Nikon....they've already release their flagship DX body.....deal with it.

Nathan, I don't know if we will get a D400 or not. I've been reading threads here and over at Nikonians for more than six months as well as some of the blogs. Several say there will be a D400 and several say there won't. I don't know either way as I just earn my money in photography and don't really care. I agree with you that Nikon will most likely chase new FX formats because they will bring more money. Most shooters use RAW and of course 36 mexapixil sensors are a plus. I shoot both RAW and jpeg. The density of the D7100 works fine for me and I've made prints as large as 30x40 inches.

Most are clamoring for a DX Pro sized body but don't use DX Glass. My weather sealed D7100 with grip is large enough and since it has the same sensor as the D800 and 51AF area mode with a density in pixel strength that actually matches the D800 the only draw back would be the buffer. As for the buffer, I use Extreme Pro SD cards with a read write speed of 95mb and if I'm shooting moving subjects like BIF or sports I generally do what the sports pros do and shoot jpeg. basic at lower megapixel and perhaps 1/3 crop and can shoot 25-35 frames before the buffer binds up. Is that enough? For me it is. Now if walking around with a D7100 and an AF-S 70-200 f2.8 doesn't look professional enough for some OK. Go rip of the guy who looks more professional.

Nathan BTW before moving to Richmond VA I lived in Deerfield Beach, FL.

Maybe a D400 for the Holidays? But that leaves us with the question of what year.

There's thousands of people (like me) who will eventually switch to canon if that's the case. I can't afford a D4 so I've been waiting for the d400 for years. There hasn't been a true upgrade to the d300s. Sure the d7100 is the "flagship" for now...why cant we want the same size body? i dont want to go thekugh the menu to change white balance and iso, wheres the AF on button? theres a bunch of little things like that im waiting for. Theres no professional grade dx body other than the d300s. I'm waiting for canon to release

Have you considered used D3/D3s if you are looking at D4 at all (which means you don't mind FX), both are quite a step up IQ wise and especially are quite 'professional'

I hear you. We each have our preferences and dealbreakers though, and for me it's image quality. I aim to sell large prints of the highest quality, and so the lowest I'll go is 12-bit lossless compressed RAW. And so, while a buffer of 25-35 frames would definitely be enough for me, this particular body can't give me that buffer depth at my IQ settings.
