Wow, 31 pages on this topic!
I didn't read all 31 pages, but my .02 is that there will no D400, but the D7200 will come out early (how early I don't know) and it will have a large enough raw buffer to satisfy most peoples needs.


The horse died quite some time ago, but never let it be said that this motley crew would stop talking if given the opportunity… And this seems a perfectly reasonable place to do so. Andre is a generous host, welcoming all but the most absurd contributions. My guess is this conversation will run through 2014… but please Andre, let it die then if your much sought after camera does not appear. Write a letter to Nikon instead…

It's called clinging to hope ... besides, my D300 is not dead yet and it will need a replacement at some point ...

I know, I know Andre… I've been saying the same thing about the D700 replacement, which really hasn't arrived yet. But I've been told patience is a virtue, something you should know as patriarch of that large brood. Neither one of us is suffering, exactly, but it would be nice to celebrate with others when OUR cameras arrive. Until then…

I've been on the DF thread, and started and revived a "So what did Nikon get right" thread to push a positive vibe ...

We should post there some ... and here some to keep hope alive ...

Could we get in trouble with the FCC for colluding like that?

I agree, it is far better to maintain an open mind rather than jump into a negative stance about these things. There actually are psychological studies that say the optimists are right… the glass REALLY IS half full…

Yea, that rumor has been floating for about a week ... I can't imagine what's coming next ... some say the D3300

More likely a D4x base on the latest sensor announcement from Sony. And of course far be it from me to hold out hope for a D400 / D900

Yea, Nikon seems to be more interested in iterating there most up to date bodies (D5300, D3300, D4s, etc.) rather than filling in the gaps in the line-up (D400, D4x, D800h). Make no sense to me. If Nikon does not smarten up soon, their camera business is going to go the way of their stepper business.

Hopefully, Nikon is developing a "pro-quality" DX body (D400/D9000) and filling in gaps in the DX lenses to compare with all the FX lenses.

Maybe we'll see a huge announcement this year.

Andre,

There's a rumor Canon is going to announce the 7D replacement...

http://www.canonrumors.com/2014/01/eos-7d-replacement-coming-for-cp-cr1/

Nikon is going to have to counter...perhaps with a D400...

Quit hoping folks. The d400 is here, it's called the d7100.

That rumour pops up every quarter, and has for more than a year. Canon doesn't seem any more interested in a new 7D than Nikon does in a D400.

We know both Canon and Nikon will have announcements by 01/17, the question is will a pro DX be among them. While Canon has not been faster to the announcement, they have indicated in executive interviews that Pro DX is not done. Nikon has implied that the 7100 is the top of their DX food chain. Nikon is much more likely to announce a small body sports FX camera then they are a Pro DX only body. The one thing that Nikon does have is that they do allow a DX mode on FX bodies. If they can improve the view finder in DX mode, maybe a DX only body is redundant. Canon doesn't give you a DX option with the 5DMII, so they are more likely to need a DX option.

It has been so long since the D300 arrived on the scene by now we should be seeing the D500.

It looks like Canon will be releasing the 7d mark ii sometime soon according to Canon rumors. I can't imagine that Nikon would be far behind - I would still buy a low light DX body @ 8-10 fps and a nice buffer for wildlife.

Wow, talk about drudging up an old thread ... I figured it was dead until Dec 31, 2014, or if and when Nikon ever releases one ... I'm suspecting the former first and the later maybe never.

But I'm with you Willy, if Canon releases a 7D II we have a chance of a D300 replacement ... but I'm not holding my breath for either.

My guess is both companies are waiting for the other to make the 'first move', so they can ensure their offering is equal or superior to the other. Eventually though, someone will have to take the first step. At least the sensor department should be no contest, until Canon upgrades their fabrication equipment or agrees to outsource. Their 5-7 year old sensor technology is starting to show their age big time.

I still believe Nikon will make a true D300 replacement, rather than mix it into a D9300 or whatever, but I am probably in the minority on that one .

With cameras like the D800 shooting 6fps at ~15MP in crop mode (maybe 7-8 FPS with the D810??), you get 2 cameras in 1, and I don't think I'll be in the market for a DX body again. There will definitely be a big market for a D400 though, especially if they get 8-10 FPS, pro AF, and a good buffer going. Wildlife and sports photographers especially. I hope they make it.

I think we'll have either the 7DMK2 or D9300/D400 by August, personally.

My gut is that the demanding and eager will be expecting some D4S-type built and performance with modest decrease in ISO capabilities. In other words, a pipe dream lol

I don't think Nikon and Canon are waiting for each other to make the first move then announce their offering. These sophisticated cameras, if they exist, must have been designed quite some time ago and have been tested in the field for months and months, it's not something they can pull out of their hat quickly after their competition announce the new model.
