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.

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.

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

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?

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."

Couple of things come to mind: Post production effort to remove AA filter or remove from the line for special handling. That alone is not worth $1k premium, the other reason is, because the Market really wants it and will pay that premium happily. Nikon likes to play on the "exclusive"...

It's funny... on the Nikon boards you hear quite a few people saying things like "I need to hurry up and get the D700 before it's too late/I'm afraid that the D800 is going to suck."

I have NEVER seen a post saying "I better hurry up and get a 5D2 because the 5D3 is going to suck."

Just sayin....

If the sample is true than the new D800 will destroy the 5Dmk3 ( if the 5d will be a 22MP camera), even if canon will have 1 sop better ISO; 14 MP advantage will make a huge difference.

Hope Canon will go for the 28-32 MP sensor.
