This appears to be the body that so many have been waiting on, if it's real. And I must say this is, the most believable rumor I've seen so far. I'm not totally sold on the 3rd photo. The side stamped D700 looks a lot like the D200 with the contour and round port caps. The finder housing doesn't seem to be large enough to house a full frame pentaprism. It looks like D300 housing to be honest. However the bare frame in the second scan does appear to be a Nikon body, of course, with a large LCD, and a rather large VF housing.

I would say that the printer has just lost his job. Nikon will make sure they never deal with that publisher.

I have been in the print trade for many years and have had to bite my tongue on many occasions. THat is a real no-no.

It looks like the real deal to me.

I hope it's true! I want them to keep it at 12MP and not bump it up to 16-18 as some rumors have stated.

It may be the D300 housing. The article mentions it uses the MB-D10 grip. This would help save Nikon money in tooling/manufacturing costs, getting things to market much faster. Interesting rumor/possibility.

I agree. And in another image, you can see the larger housing with a round eyepiece which wouldn't fit the descripion of any single grip Nikon DSLR.

This is the image that seems to show a lower profile VF housing.

Of course it's true, I bought my D300 less than a month ago, but I still love it.

I've just informed my youngest we would have to put him on ebay so I could get a new cam.

Nice find!

What is the RRP of the D300 there? (in relation to the $2995 quoted above)

$3000US is around 1500 here, I paid 900 ($1800) for my D300.

Still too expensive. Needs to be under $2500 to compete.

$2500 would be ideal...but I'd be willing to fork out 3k. Really will depend on where the 5D II lands and and what features it has. I don't care about additional resolution, but it'd have to have much better AF, build, LCD, etc as well, and if it does, I don't see it coming in at $2500 either.

the guy who published those pictures told that it has same AF as D3. I think it will be very similar to D3 except the speed and D3's pro body.
