Nikon D400...soon to be released?

Just when I was getting ready to go out and buy a Nikon D700 for the noise reduction factor, I come across this article from a publictaion called "Electricpig" out of the UK, dated March 20th.

"A few weeks ago we picked up the first rumblings concerning a new D400 digital SLR from Nikon, apparently due to launch in the summer. Well, now some specifications have apparently appeared on the German Nikon website, before being mysteriously removed minutes later. The plot thickens…

Nikon Rumors received the tip-off from a reader, who emailed in a screenshot of the Nikon Germany site with the D400 camera added to the existing line-up with a “New” tag next to it. The camera’s blurb reveals that the D400 has a 15.4-megapixel CMOS sensor, 6fps continuous shooting mode, ISO from 200 to 6400 and the ability to shoot full HD 1080p video via its Live View mode.

But by the time the folks at Nikon Rumors had checked the site, the D400 had disappeared from the listing - suggesting either that the picture was a hoax, or that Nikon had spotted its premature listing and taken it down before anyone spotted it.

So it remains a mystery for now, but it does seem as though the D400 will launch eventually. As we reported last month, a guidebook for the camera has already appeared on Amazon’s German store, written by a man with a substantial back catalogue of Nikon tomes. We’ll keep an eye out for more news."

For all of us Nikon users that have clung to our D200's up to now, this could be a nice reward for the wait.

Personally I will not get too excited until I hear it from Ken Rockwell at http://kenrockwell.com Ken tend to be one of the leading authorites on Nikon and his website is unmatched in my opinion.
