p.1 #1 · Nikon D400 or D4 successor?


According to Nikon Rumors: http://nikonrumors.com/2013/12/25/nps-japan-stopped-selling-nikon-d4-cameras.aspx/

Usually a sign that there will be a new body. That and this:





Would it be a D400, or a D4 successor? I mean, The D4 will be 2 years old in about 2-3 weeks. Is there enough advancement for there to be a D4 successor (unless they're doing something with dual XQD, dual EXPEED4 processors, expanded focus points and cross-focus points, etc.)...

Will ask a Nikon rep I know.

D410, as per D4 but 0.5 extra FPS and improved white balance.

Clearly a D4 replacement, but after 2 years? Eh? I guess it has a few improvements to the sensor in the same body ie D4s. Perhaps 24 million pixies with the same frame rate and improved noise performance.

Another argument for this would be the release of the DF- if a D4s is released, the DF would no longer have the flagship sensor. But who knows...

The discontinuation of the D4 sales in Japan point to a FX successor. But the thing is, how many people can afford to buy a D4S/X or D5? They make cameras to make money, as they are ultimately a business. I'm thinking a D400 (D7100 sensor, new processor + deeper buffer in a D600/610-like body) for about $1,700.

I'd wish for a D400, but I'd bet D4s as well...

D600 or D4 sensor in an enhanced D800 body, something similar to a 5D MK3, la Nikon.

No f***** 39 AF pts cluttered in the damn middle.
No oily shutter.
No outter left AF point problem.

Make a damn 24-70 with VR3 to go with it.

Pretty please.

You forgot putting the D700 or F6 finder in it, not the low-magnification crap(0.7x? Really? With the competition delivering 0.74x or better?) with non-replaceable focus screens the D800(E), D6x0 and Df have right now.

You're damn right.

The possibility to EASILY change the focus screen would actually be awesome. But if the Df doesnt have this, no Nikon body will.

Remember the Df internals are completely off the shelf, including the prism & focusing screen (which are D610 items). Nikon could easily have gone back to a proper focus screen installation, but that would have meant engineering more items specifically for the Df.

Thats exactly what they should have done. Then the Df would have a real, pratical purpose.

Thus justifying it's price.

If the rumor found at the link is true, then an order stoppage for D4 bodies can only mean a D4s is coming in January. I hope the rumor isn't true - really hoping for a D4x.

No! But if it's a D400 I won't mind that they did not clear it with me first!
