I too, am impatiently awaiting the d400. I don't pretend to know whether or not there will be one or what Nikon is doing or will do and why. I do know that I'd buy a true upgrade to the d300's that I have now.
For me, I'd be very happy with a tweaked 16mp sensor out of the d7k, stuffed into a d800 body, with all of the high performance features of the d300/s. But, I suppose that a 20 to 24mp sensor would be what the bean counters would put into it. I don't care about that, all that much, so long as it can do 8fps with a very deep buffer. Ergos, buffer and FPS are important to me, otherwise I'd buy a d7100.
So, like many, I am hopeful that Mr. Hogan gets this prediction correct, JIT for football season.
Andre, keep the faith, you're not alone!
