The sensor is a major disadvantage over the D600, in my opinion.

As looks go, she's a beauty.

Now get me specs and price. That's what makes the difference to me.

The ISO dial showing native 12800 and H1-H4(204800) seems to further confirm this will have the D4 sensor. wOOt!

If it's basically a D600 with retro looks, the price had best be close to the D600 or this thing will flop.

I'm waiting to the announcement before I believe any of the rumored specs ... but it's looking less and less like this is the FX body I was hoping for.

Well that's exactly the thing we don't know - how the manual focussing works. Just a dot and I'm out but I feel there will be more. Wasn't there talk of a hybrid camera - maybe this mean AF and MF? But how? I guess we'll see tomorrow.


You're exactly right Ian, there was talk of a hybrid viewfinder. Time will tell.

I agree somewhat Andre, but if it's geared internally for a better MF performance, then I for one will be excited. But I'm STILL not sure I can take a step back in resolution.

Does anyone know if that's the BKT button on the front above the lens release button?

Interesting. I do like the looks of the one in silver.

Of course, we haven't seen the full specs and especially the price. While the looks are cool, I think I'd go for a D7100 first, and I'm not even thinking seriously about that.

In one of the teaser videos it looked like BKT.

Not sure what to think. Had hoped for something more compact.

Like: SO MANY BUTTONS TO PLAY WITH!!!
Dislike: Most likely the price (it it's $2K or above)

If (and this is the big if for me), if it has the D4 sensor, a la D3/D700, and it's under $2500, I'll snag one. That sensor is perfect for a walk-round body - superb low-light ability and excellent sharpness for it's resolution. Like I said, perfect for walk-around duty. What it's not is a D800E replacement, or even a D610 replacement. And I'm good with that.

Peace,

Todd

Where is the SD card door? It's not like the full bodies where the back grip flips open and I don't see the push out on the side for the SD card.

Does that mean it's at the bottom? Near the battery compartment ala Nikon 1 V2?

Also I don't understand why the pro-sumers get U1/U2 and the professional cameras don't.

I am glad they left off scene mode but still U1/U2 made using my D7000 when I had it a breeze.

My main concern is the grip - looks a bit shallow so holding it might not be that comfortable for those with larger hands. Might hand to compensate that with a 3rd party grip, like what's available for the Fuji X cameras.

Other than that, this is tempting me to sell my D600 + D7000 to get this.

Will have to wait and see but I'm hopeful so far

I think it's odd they don't have the viewfinder lever.

I'm curious to see how to handles with nikon's 2.8 zooms. Is it going to be ridiculous with a 24-70 or 14-24? I wish they had a nice set of SMALL high quality primes.

I kinda wish it gets the D600 sensor. D800 sensor - overkill. D4 sensor - too expensive. 24MP is just perfect, and puts it on the affordable side.
