Nikon is apparently announcing on February 7, 2012. This comes two days before the CP+ show opens in Yokohama, Japan. A suspected D800 and 5D Mark III (or similar) on the same day?
Back to the original topic, NL quotes from his Nikon source that "... it was said that we should expect a D3200 at CP+, and that the D800 that everyone seems to expect as a racing certainty, may well be held back until after the D4 is shipping..."
seems to be so sure about D800 announcement on Feb 7 now:
"...I already mentioned about the Nikon event on February 7th, 2012 but I was not sure what would be announced on that date. It will be the Nikon D800. The camera will have 36MP (not 24MP like reported on several websites)...
"...The Nikon D800 will start shipping few week after the announcement...
Does this materialize faster the announcement of Canon's counterpart (e.g. 5D III or something else)?
