Default Nikon D4 and D400 announced in August...apparently

If you believe the rumour mill....which has been pretty accurate lately, bar the D700 successor!

Its not a surprise. Nikon flagships have been on a 4 year release cycle since the digital era. Some mathematical genius has been able to extrapolate that from a timeline.

waits with excitement for D300/D300's to drop even more in price

Probly should just get a D7000 instead of D300s

Urgh am hoping the mill is wrong and we see D700 replacement. There is hardly any stock of the 700 anymore.

If not.. looks like im destined for a D700 anyway.

So I take it the D800 was expected to have been at least announced along with their other high end models but hasn't been?

Was only rumoured, but was tipped since Jan when Nikon requested employees to clear that week for an announcement (well if Nikon Rumours is on the mark).

Just have to wait and see.. still 2 months away though!

Well after my shoots in HK / Taiwan i managed to offload 3 of my D700 at the price i purchased them about 4 months prior. Still strong demand for the D700 work horse. I wouldn't mind a ergonomics upgrade if there is a D800

I quite liked the ergonomics of the D700, found it sat very nicely in my hands (and I have large hands).

Hmm... the front dial is too small and could protrude more over the rubber?
Also I find the 90^ of that dial uncomfortable after long periods of shooting. a 60^ or 45^ would be better. And the back dial needs to be a thumb wheel..

oh damn....those are Canon configs...hahaha

So the date came around and no D800 in sight. when do you guys think it will be released?

i currently work with film cameras and would love to finally get a decent digital slr. i've been tempted to get the D7000, but would rather get a fullframe and the D700 looks great. However, if the D800 is around the corner, then i'd rather wait for that as it's rumoured to be a decent upgrade.

I'd say it'll be early 2012 now.
Purchase your D700, it's El Fabo!

why? d700 will be cheaper when d800 is out and more 2nd hand options will be available. u also get to weigh up the options if d800 is worth it as well.

i agree with you there. that's why, one way or another, i gotta wait for the D800 to come out!
