What do folks think about what and when Nikon will release the next-gen developments in prosumer-level DSLRs? Anyone have an idea as to what's happening out there?

Yes... Makes gear mongers happy.

On the high end flagship front, have the d3x, if holding off for that's replacement....got about 2 years.

d700/d300 level....if the d700 doesn't sway you nothing will. Vague rumors of a d700X. D300 may get replaced, but for how much gonna be difficult to determine. Expensive as is now. If it creeps up in price, unless you have an army of dx glass, may make that d700 real appealing.

d90 being top of entry body imo, not much to be tweaked on that before it becomes a d300 level cam and that would cut off that market. Have to prevent market overlap, would be nice, but pro level features in a consumer body ain't gonna happen for business reasons. D90 less than a year old, would not hold breath

What' next for Nikon? Well, Nikon may merge with Canon to corner the camera market. I don't know.... I am just pulling this out of thin air . Time to go to bed...

Need an update of wide angle primes. 20,24,28 need to be updated with wider aperture's.

+1. come out with some new fast wide primes please! NIKON has the bodies pretty well figured out.

I would strongly suggest a well-spec'd PS to compete with the LX3 and G10 -that is the segment they lack the most IMO.

Camera body: D400
Lenses: 24 f/1.4, 85 f/1.4 VR, 200 f/4 VR micro, 300 f/4 VR, 80-400 AFS VR

That would just about round out what Nikon has left for update gaps. The 70-200 VR-II will be next year along with a Micro zoom.

I wonder how much of that will actually come true

D400 by July, maybe an updated 70-200 / 80-400. Would like to see a 400 5.6 - or an updated 300 f4 with VR.

Once DX body gains close to D700 high ISO, then I am happy with it. It can be D300 built quality or D90 built quality as long as it has the screw drive AF capability...

Reminds me of a song by Ok Go...

HERE IT GOES AGAIN

Well, you can't stay on top without staying ahead of the game, but I guess we the consumer never stop craving "the next thing". C'mon Nikon already! What have you done for us lately?!

I don't know what Nikon's doing, but we've been speculating about an "iPad" type device since last November...

and lookie what the rumor mill is cooking up

http://apple20.blogs.fortune.cnn.com/2009/04/28/steve-jobs-verizon-the-iphone-and-the-ipad/

That'd be handy to shoot tethered with

I'd like to see the DC lenses updated (i.e the DC function removed altogether), the 70-200 VR updated, I suppose the 80-400 could use an update.

While I'd not mind seeing a D400 with D700-like high ISO performance, I'd much rather see an F4 lineup of pro-level lenses. Man, how I miss my 24-105 and 70-200 from my Canon days. Come on Nikon!
