Remember the D400 was already at a very advance stage and close to its release at that time...

*snip wall of text*


For me to remember that, I would have had to have already read it at some point. Any proof to back up this statement?

Around that time there were a number of magazines listing the impending release of the D400 book with ISBN 9783827244826 or Magic Lantern ISBN 978-1454707820, but after the 2011 tsunami the listing was changed or pulled.

Maybe this might help you to remember.

Nope sorry. Pretty sure these forums would have been flooded with people talking about it if there was anything concrete. Got a link?

I did edit to add in a link while you reply, that link even had a picture of the advertisement which they later said was a posting mistake.
A posting mistake by a major and well know publisher like ML, I really doubt it.

I can't believe that after all of your moaning for the new camera: "I can't afford it, my D300 works just fine for me".




Bwaahaaahaaahaaa

It's the larger issue of Nikon continuing the support the DX line-up with a pro-level body or not. I have a big investment in lenses and don't want to invesnt more in DX if DX is not going to have a pro offering.

Also, I did not say that I would not buy a D400 ... I certainly will ... just not this year (i.e. in the next 6 months) but 2014 is new year.

Well, actually, yes! We've seen that happen before.

Sorry, but there's as much supposition in everything you said as there is in the idea that the D400 will indeed come.

Everything for or against is supposition at this point. If no D400 is announced by January 2014, then I will assume that a pro-level DX body is dead ... but not before then. YMMV.

I'll wait until it has been out at least a year before I consider buying one. Let someone else work out the bugs, if there are any.

We'll at least if will bring down the prices on D300's right? I would be interested but all my lenses are FX so I kind of don't care. I wish Nikon would release another FX body D900. Canon shooters can by the original 5D for around $400-500 now which is a steal - D700's are still $1200-1400

I sure don't see how the price of a D300 can get much lower as they already are in the $400 - $500 range which is a steal.

Might he be refering to new D300s prices which are still in the $1600 range?

Rumored upcoming announcement for a 18-140 variable f-stop DX lens. And still not much "chatter" of a D400. Not. Looking. Good.

You always announce the small stuff first so it does not get buried by the big stuff. I still have hope ... and if not in August, then by December for sure.

I've been reading IF its announced it would more likely be September and not August.

The D400 saga aside, what's up with this announcement?! Let's see, we have 18-200 VR & VRII, 18-105 VR, 18-55 I,II,VR, 18-300, 16-85, and triple that number from 3rd party. Of course in addition to older 18-135 and other ones. Beats me

The D300 and D3 were announced Aug 23, 2007
six years ago.
The d4 was announced Jan 6, 2012.
I think all hope will be lost if September comes without a D400.

It would be fine if the d800's frame rate increased pro rata to decrease in file size due to dx crop / 14bit to 12 bit / lossless to compressed raw etc.

1 lousy extra frame providing you use the grip and AAs / d4 battery? come on.

To my mind, 8 fps should be on the table in dx mode - the d300 could do it 6 years ago with 12mp files, surely the 800 could do 8fps with dx crop mode?

I'd be happy then. but then again, i already have the d800e.

Andy

ps - well done lara_ckl , just officially announced 18-140 f3.5-5.6 vr ! Now have another look in your crystal ball and tell us if the d400 is coming !

August is there, the D400 isnīt. I guess weīll need a new thread

Looks like itīll be an upgrade to full frame for me then... Something like a used D3

Or a title update! But that will have to wait until September

Don't they generally schedule their body announcements around an event of some sort (CES, etc.)?
