Positive it's not a new ashton kutcher coolpix?  It's all speculation what or if anything will be announced.  Just like the 7d2, 70D, and the 5D3 which could come out anytime in 2012.
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

I've heard a local Nikon rep speculating about a the upcoming release of a new digital camera called the DS-Ri2...oh, wait...that's for microscopes.  Sorry to get your hopes up.   :P
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Nikon badly needs to replace the D700 and D300S.  They cannot sell them in Japan, due to battery safety laws.  You can bet that they are pulling out all the stops to get new models ready for release ASAP.

Canon doesn't have that problem, and it hurts Nikon to see Canon selling the 5D MK II and 7D in Japan while they have nothing to sell that competes.

Good point, forgot about that. Did you read at Nikonrumors that the D700/D300S are officially on the discontinued list?

Yes, and ll this time we should have been blaming Nikon!   Had they gotten their act together and deprived Canon of 5d2/7d sales, we would have had a 5D3 announced by now   :P

I thought D7000 competes well against 7D?  No?

They are banned from sale in Japan due to new battery regulations. Exposed contacts, IIRC.

NikonRumors is now so sure about the announcement of D800 on Feb 7.

And seems like the discontinuation of D700 as FF entry model won't create a gap that lasts too long because NR said:

"...The Nikon D800 will start shipping few week after the announcement..."

Finally... Nikon releases their version of the 5d2....but with very good AF.  Now, I want to see the ISO performance.
If it equals the D700...likely imo...that would be a success.  And if the version w/AA filter is $3k as rumored vs $4k w/o AA...it will be quite the camera.

The D7000 competes favorably to the 60D, but is lower end compared to the 7D.

No, the D7000 is a competitor to the 60D.  The D300S is the equivalent Nikon body to the 7D.

Any thoughts on why the camera w/o the AA filter would be more expensive?  More chip processing or complex algo?

As Mia Wallace said in the movie, "Pulp Fiction:"

"When you little scamps get together, you're worse than a sewing circle."



Word around, is that a French representative was bragging at a bar in Paris about covering the release of the new Nikon sometime next week.
