Nikon D3 Replacement in 2009?

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?

    It would be nice to know about Nikon lenses. What plans for improving some old but necessary lenses to adapt them to DSLR need.

    A D3S so soon after this monolith D3x? Yeah right. You are dreaming. I agree lets get some lenses out there.
