Popular Science Nikon D3 and D300 Leak

Nikon Strikes Back!!! It appears that Popular Science may have jumped the gun on the release of their article for the Nikon D3 and D300. The article was apparently up for a few minutes and then pulled. Too little too late, because Technorati captured the intro to the article which reads as follows:

Nikon’s Pro Camera Assault [IMG D3_85_ambiance_i] Just three days after Canon announced a pair of pro cameras, Nikon unleashed it’s own duo of high-end digitals: The ultra high-end D3 and the still really high-end D300. It leads with the Deathstar of SLRs, the D3. The biggest change is, in fact, one of bigness. Nikon equipped the new camera with a 36×23.9-millimeter image sensor that’s nearly as large as an old 35-milimeter film frame.

Note that the tone of the article speaks of the Nikon announce for the D3 and D300 in past tense. Apparently, PopSci knows something the rest of us don’t. Make a note to check back here in the morning to find out if a Nikon D3 and D300 really exist.
