Well he was certainly correct that a new SLR was going to be announced. But not the D400 as it turned out, but the D610 instead.Thom is a very bright fellow, and I for one certainly hope he is correct :wink:
That's really the decision....all the bells and whistles of the latest and greatest do finally reach the ultimate decision point. Yesterday, I grabbed my wife's D40 in lieu of my D800 to take some quick playground shots of our grandchildren.My D300 is doing just fine. When the D400 (if arrives) then we'll see.
They could call it the D7400 and everyone would be happy.Why doesn't Nikon just make the D7100/D600 chassis all mag alloy, bump up the buffer for both cameras and uncripple with the D600 with it's low flash synch, anemic 39pt AF and lame 1/4000th max shutter speed! They'd automatically satisfy everyone, create a proper D300 replacement and make the D600 a true D800-lite. I don't mind the SD card slots or the limited controls, but the features I mentioned should be standard across the board for this class of camera.
Stop encouraging them!!I know a lot of people are/were looking forward to this body - I'm more excited about the rumored D610 - my next body will be full frame...I expect to have my D7000 for at least another year or so and when I do go to get new one it will be FX...
