Granted, this would be rather odd timing to release a replacement for the Nikon D3 professional grade DSLR; however, Photo Rumors has info they’re calling reliable that such a replacement will be announced this Fall. The tipster says that the D3 replacement will maintain the 12.3 megapixel sensor found in the current D3, but points to the addition of a dust removal system. I would hope that any replacement to this $4k camera would have more upgrades than a dust removal system.
If there is credence to this rumor, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a feature set matched to the Nikon D300s, which purportedly will feature HD video capture. A refresh of the feature set would make more sense than the full replacement of a pro-level camera that’s 2 years into its product cycle.
Nikon D3s anyone?
