Just popped over to Nikon Rumours and they have updated the ISO to show 200-12800 as native, expandable to 50 L and 204k H.
Something just doesn't add up with this camera as 'outed'.
Ethernet output, no mention of gigabit.
Next Gen CF card slot and 1 ordinary Cf slot - why? Canon were always guilty of multi card format annoyances - Nikon had it nailed with 2 CF slots...
$6000 seems a bit much for those specs listed, which in turn means Canon could easily ask for and demand $6800 for a 1DX!
I just went to the NR site and I still see the 100-102k as the standard ISO range. If I clic on the "read more" link on their site, this is the correct ISO range I think. Is it possible you clicked on the old link from his previous post where he said the range was 12800?
I think NIkon will try to hang on the ISO battle so it would make sense they are 102k standard irregardless of the IQ - at least from a Marketing aspect...I think!?!
You could well be right, it did puzzle me that they would take a hit on ISO.
TBH, i see this as a rather insignificant release compared with the 1DX which, when i had a play, really did have a few "WOW" factors. The AF, ISO and control duplication in portrait mode were very much 'i want one'...
